I am still doing my daily GRATITUDE and wanted to show you how I did yesterday entry on a LARGE shipping tag. I used my sticker from voting and used it for the day. NOTE: I am showing you a "little" sneak peek of my brand new line of stamps that I am debuting soon. Can't wait to share all the details with you.
I wanted to share it because I was so stressed this week. I was trying to do "too much" the past couple of days. I have been working every day on "new lines" (debuting in 2013) and "new kits" ... so much and pushing myself to be multi-tasking beyond my limits. I realized that a person can only do so much all by themselves.
I called my best friend tonight to just decompress. She gets me and let me talk. She mentioned my PICTURE (the one above) that she saw on FACEBOOK yesterday and was worried I am too thin. I had to laugh out loud. How funny... I had lost 32 lbs and have not gained any weight back UNTIL two weeks ago and I'm up 8 lbs easy. Warning... drinking soda again truly is what brought back the "cravings." So I am getting right back on track. I am doing the major detox program again for FIVE weeks that I did a year ago. I will do this for the rest of my life if needed. It works and it's really easy to adhere too for the most part. I had no cravings or issues until I started drinking soda while on a business trip. My cravings for sugar and all of that came back "full force." I am going back to the health clinic so I have the support that I need.
So I am happy to say that I am not too skinny- far from it... and that I like most women still struggle daily with my weight. I just so happy and just don't put much value on the number of the scale. It's really about "how" you feel and if you are "healthy" you just feel better. I'm not going to lie and say I like gaining weight, but it's the result of some back choices I made.
I even designed the TC December Retailer class kit yesterday. It's a BIG kit and has all the elements to do your own complete 2013 Calendar project. I only sell these kits to retailers. Retailers can sign up to be in our program and teach them as a monthly class or just as a kit. They are so popular and we have sold out every month. However, many crafters are always asking where to buy them. If you have the kits make sure you let your customers know! This is something special that I design to help the stores have TCD kits that are well designed and have all the supplies needed inside the kit. I did this because I am not physically able to go to all the stores that would like for me to come and teach. This is the next best thing- wink!
I taught last weekend in California and since all the workshops sold out, so many girls asked if they could purchase one of three kits that I had taught last weekend. Then I got lots of emails this week. I know many of you are not close enough to take one of my workshops. These classes are only available at the stores that I am teaching at. So I am going to do something just for TODAY- I spoke with Taylor (she kits all my kits) and she is willing to kit up more kits since the workshops sold out. If you want a kit you will have to order and pay for it today. Taylor had enough supplies to kit up a few more kits and will kit as many as she can this weekend.
Here are the workshops kits that I taught last weekend:
Vintage Finds Memory Keeper Binder PROJECT
You can email Taylor directly at firstname.lastname@example.org on how to order a kit. These are not my monthly retailer class kits and unfortunately I do not sell those kits to anyone but retailers.
She will give you any information you need and if you would like to purchase one- she will give you the paypal account information. Please email early if your are interested. Limited kits are available.
I am headed to the airport AGAIN this morning. I am headed to teach this weekend in Washington. I will be at the Ben Franklin Craft Stores in Bonney Lake (Saturday) and Monroe (Friday). I am pretty excited because they have a fun weekend agenda for the weekend for me. I will see Julie Jacob and Cheri Piles my design team leaders. I think WA is beautiful and I can't wait!!! I hope to see many of you there. I LOVE the stores and the people and have looked forward to this weekend for so many months. I am teaching the Vintage Finds Binder and the Christmas Cottage project once at both stores.
Have a great day!!!!
This is Taylor! I will take Orders until Midnight tonight! After that time I will have to cut off all other orders. If you don't hear from me know I am getting Lots of emails. In your email please included what Kits you want. Kits will start to ship next week after I put them all together.
