Update on my Life (and a Daydream project too)

I really enjoy being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. It has so many wonderful benefits. Due to some recent major family changes (all good,) I have had to evaluate my current situation and level of involvement as part of the Stampin’ Up! team. Some of you know bits and pieces of this depending on if you are on my customer email list….but I thought it would be good to put it on my blog for the occasional person that might find me via Pinterest or by some other means.

In December, my husband was accepted as the Senior Pastor for a church in Picture Rocks, Arizona (Praise Center Assembly of God.) We are so excited! With this new position, it meant moving our family and changing schools and gaining a new church family. It has been a wild ride! We are still adjusting to new responsibilities and all of these changes. I have been helping with various ministries as we revitalize our church. I am the interim Youth pastor and have been overseeing the Women’s ministries. In light of all these changes, I can’t keep up with card classes and this blog and all of the things I want to be doing as an active demonstrator. After spending time praying and thinking over everything, I have decided to concentrate my efforts on family and church ministry. I will most definitely continue with Stampin’ Up! because I just can’t be without it and I still love to make cards and scrapbook pages as a creative outlet but my presence here on this blog will have to dwindle. I imagine that I will continue to post an occasional project but it will be less frequent.

I will still be putting in orders so let me know if you need anything but my emails and posts probably will be few and far between.

Thank you for all of your kind comments and support throughout this journey of mine. I have felt lots of love from you all! Thank You!

And just for fun….Here is a recent project I made using items from the Sale-A-Bration and Occasions catalogs.

Daydreams, Cupcakes, and Carousels card by Staci Rivera using Stampin' Up products

I kind of made the card daydream-y because of the saying. I really enjoy the Cupcakes and Carousels paper stack. It is really versatile and I’m glad it is part of my stash.

Have a Cleverly Creative Day!

  1. Congratulations, to you, your husband and your family. You have probably made the right decision for now. God doesn’t close a door without opening a window first. Maybe later, you’ll be able to share SU! with your new family. God Bless You and Yours
