Not just today, but everyday, I have so much to be thankful for!! I am thankful for my wonderful family, a great Husband, four fabulous kids, three dogs, the list goes on and on!!!
She gave me an opportunity a bit over a year ago that really has made me learn and grow so much.
I have always heard those inspirational sayings about “reach for the stars and you will touch them”, but I found out this year, for the first time in my 39 years, that those are true, they are not just inspirational sayings.
I bought myself a wrist cuff that I wear almost daily that says “ She took a leap of FAITH, and on the way down she grew wings”. This is what the saying looks like on the cuff.
I love it so much, it brings tears to my eyes. It really does say what the last year has been like for me, a leap of faith! I want to take this opportunity to thank Lynell for making me realize that I could do things that I only dreamed about.
Here is the the project I made today…
Once the Glossy Black paste was dry, I trimmed around the aluminum frame. I used some seriously old corner punches that I just recently recovered from a drawer and adhered my focal image to black velvet paper with dimensionals.
A few days ago, I posted that I was going to have a few giveaway’s when I reached 300 blog followers. As a few hours ago, I had passed 300 followers and as my way of saying THANK YOU, three giveaway’s, one from each company I design for. I am giving away a Happy Birthday and the Heliconia Butterfly stencils…
I will be announcing give-a way's today (from Dreamweaver Stencils), this Saturday (from Stampendous) and Tuesday(Skipping Stones Designs).
