When I started this journey with Stampin' Up! I sure did not know how it would impact my life in so many ways.
I used to be VERY introverted and being in crowds of 4 or more people was very intimidating to me. I would just sit there and watch and not say anything. Well, now I find crowds easier - which was bound to happen when I started going to the Stampin' Up! Convention each year. One year there were 6500 of us at Convention in Salt Lake City. It was truly amazing to be there. Sometimes I just sit and watch now as well, but I find I get to learn so much more from the people around me by trying to be a good listener. Now it is on purpose tho, not a thing i need to do to survive until I get home.
I also used to have everything my way. Being a type A personality with OCD tendencies was my whole life. We often laugh at how the towels, sheets and blankets had to be folded a certain way or I redid them before putting them in the linen closet. Well, now I really don't card because doing all that refolding takes time out of my craft room! I just "throw" things into the linen closet now and hope for the best!
Over the past 8.5 years I have met some wonderful people through my obsession and I am proud to call them friends. I am sharing some of their cards with you all this week, so come by each day for more amazing cards.
This card is made by Jean B. I love bling and Jean has used a lot of it on this card.
