Why Have Things Been SO Crazy?!

Well for those of you who haven’t heard or sensed my stress level coming through in posts, or my lack of involvement recently on FB and my lack of tutorials uploaded to my YT Channel- well here is why~
So what is this packed box for?? Well over the last several weeks I have been feverishly working on the different projects that I officially mailed off to submit for the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Contest.  I was prompted by my demo friend Michelle to enter although I hate to say it, I doubt I am selected.  I know that sounds so defeatist, huh? Well I am hoping that it is just a case of seeing these projects for SO long that their creative luster has just worn off for me.
So what did I have to create, well I would love to show you but for now I will just have to tell you~
*three 12×12 single page layouts (I threw in a couple created with MDS for good measure)
*five cards (again a couple were MDS Hybrid creations)
*two 3-D projects, this could be anything and was FOR SURE the hardest for me to narrow down and execute.
All I have to say is… Whew! I am so glad I am done!
And now its on its way to Stampin’ Up! I have to say packing this thing up was almost as stressful as creating them.  Trying to pack them so they arrive as if they haven’t been smashed inside a box for days…  I have to say that I am excited for the possibility (however small it may be) of being selected, if so I will get to play with new product supplied by Stampin’ Up! and create 4 different projects every time they send new things out.
So now I am off to prepare for my McAllen Club this weekend and for my upcoming HOSTESS APPRECIATION & CATALOG KICK-OFF EVENT!!! The work never ends, but I have to say that at least it is work that I really LOVE and enjoy- I finally get to start creating projects for June classes too!!  You will want to check back tomorrow to see some sneak peeks for the Simple Stamping Class for June!!!

  1. I felt the SAME way when I sent mine… the creative luster had worn off except for my last two projects which happened to be my 3D. I wasn’t done looking at them yet, but it was time. I had to ship before I reworked my cards and pages to death! I wish you the best of luck!
