Most of my uplines team live out of her area, so she had never held a team event before. She just held her first Team only event a few weeks ago. It was SO FUN!!! You would’ve loved it!! Here’s some photos of the projects we did. The red box, in the lower right two photos, hold color inspiration for us…love this gift! I don’t know if you can see it but there’s a lemonade packet in the cup with a lemon! I LOVE it, it’s so cute!!
These are most of the swaps. Aren’t they awesome! They’re all so cute!!
One of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is meeting other crafty women and becoming friends. Of course we have paper crafting in common, which makes for an instant connection sometimes. The community of women my upline has created and my growing community of paper crafters, isn’t just about paper crafting. It’s about supportive and caring relationships. Recently my husband was diagnosed with lymphoma and the love and concern we continue to receive from the Demonstrator community (most of which I haven’t met face to face), not to mention long-time friends and family, was so genuine and heart warming. We received a ton of cards with sweet notes of encouragement, love and concern. Along with our long term friends and family, many prayers were and are being said for my husband. I’m so very grateful for all the new friendships I have through my hobby and business of stamping, they enrich my life further!
I am happy to report, my husbands cancer is so slow moving, they don’t have to treat it at this point. In fact the risk of further cancer that goes with treatment is higher than the risk of this cancer itself!! Wow, never considered him not having to be treated. Further more, he will have a CT scan approximately every 6 months for the rest of his life. The Doctor didn’t want to wait 6 months for the first scan and did one at 3 months…well…again, not at all expecting it, my husbands cancer has shrunk!!!!!!! No treatment and it has shrunk…personally, I think it’s a God-thing! We did change our diet according to some medical studies, to a vegan plan and I believe this has a lot to do with it too. We anticipate his diabetes being under better control and being able to go off some or even all of the meds he takes because of the diabetes. I’m thinking God allowed Brian to have cancer…to save his life!
Thank you to all of you that have been praying for my husband and all your encouragement and love.
