The time is here...

...the moment has arrived. Somebody pinch me! Oh and do you know how hard it has been to keep this secret???? Did you read this post????



When I first started this venture months ago I had no idea what was in store for me. Creating images and making my own line of stamps is a dream come true. Not to mention working with PTI and Nichole Heady. I am sure many of you know I am a PTI fanatic so it was only natural for me to align myself with a company that I adore! And can I say that Nichole is the one of the sweetest most sincere, professional and driven woman I have know. She is such a people's person and truly cares about the whole picture! Thanks Nichole. I have really enjoyed getting to know you. And thanks Nichole, Julie and Jane for this wonderful opportunity. I am so grateful!

I can't even begin to tell you about the day MY STAMPS arrived at the post office. The poor postal clerks have been putting up with me stalking the post office, sometimes checking it 3 times a day *lol*

I am sure most of you know Tigger from Winnie the Pooh? Well that was me bouncing all day long. After months of secrecy I STILL had to wait and share it with you too. And here it is...the moment.

I just want to thank you again for sticking through the thick and thin with me. I know there have been days where I was MIA recently, but all is well...I have been working hard to bring you more! I can hardly wait to share the rest of my joy with you in the months to come. It won't be long and you will get to see what I have been working on...!


In the spirit of this announcement I wanted to share the simple thought that "Every Day is a gift"
