The JOURNEY of a Lifetime...

Hey everybody...

{{{THANK YOU so, so much-beyond anything I can measure really-for scrolling down yet again today for another UNITY Sneak Peek-it's a SWEET ONE!  I can't tell you how crazy this week has been w/ two previews a day but your wonderful comments (esp on yesterday's 'cork' topic, LOL! mean the WORLD to me!}}}

If someone had told me two years ago that I'd be doing what I do now.  Designing.  Consulting.  Loving EVERY PART of this stamping experience with The Greeting Farm and beyond, I'd have said "really?  ya think?"   I can't even begin to tell you what a JOURNEY it has been.  A WONDERFUL ONE.  And it's only just begun.  ( I SO did not want that to rhyme!  Couldn't think of a better way to put it though ;)

I am pleased to reveal today's sneak peek of an ADORABLE new set "Journey" featuring Oliver and Amelia.  This one means more to me for the simple fact that it makes me reflect on my journey w/ TGF and life's journeys as well.

It really feel as if I'm RIGHT WHERE I SHOULD BE, but also know that we keep moving and I'm so looking forward to who and what I encounter next.   I am just LOVING it.  Love the right here-LOVE the right NOW  :)   Here is a card today, that I'm celebrating with:

Could Oliver seriously be ANY cuter??  I LOVE him!   I can't wait for you to check out the Club Anya and Friends Blog today and also to see the previews of my wonderful teammates:



Today is my turn to host Wild Card Wednesday so here's my hand-drawn sketch we used today to wrap up our month of WCW Sketches:



Tomorrow is release day.  LOTS of fun in store and a BLOG HOP with Club Anya and Friends with a FABULOUS prize!  Thanks for sticking with me!  LOVE it!

“Let your mind start a JOURNEY thru a strange new world. Leave all thought of the world you knew before. Let your soul take you where you long to be...Close your eyes let your spirit start to soar, and you'll live as you've never lived before.”   ~Fromm

Jess, I don't know how you do what you do! And you are always there for those of us on your DT's (and I'm sure everyone else, too)! You never make us feel bad for our ridiculous mistakes (which I think I am becoming known for, aagh!) and are always so positive! Your cards are adorable too! It is so easy to tell you love what you do and I, for one, am grateful you do it! :-)Traci
