Celebrate with Me…10 Years of Growth

Did you know that Paper Pumpkin and I have something amazing in common? We are both celebrating our 10 year anniversary this month! WOO HOO! And boy have we come a long way!!!!! When I look back I had so much to learn! I never even imagined I’d have a blog….I didn’t know how to watermark my photos and my photography has come a long way. (There’s still room for improvement there.) I’m celebrating my anniversary with 10 days of Giveaways, a card swap (details coming soon), exclusive tutorials, some of my favorite card designs, and more!

Paper Pumpkin has come a long way too! We want to celebrate how much we’ve grown!

  1. Congratulations on your 10 years with Stampin Up! I believe I’ve been following you since you started posting! I love your creative fresh designs! I cased your casino slot machine card a few years ago & it was amazing! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks Karen! It is always good to hear from you! One of these days I hope we can meet in Florida!

  2. Congratulations on your anniversary. The last 10 years has definitely changed me. Hopefully I am wiser. Lol

    1. Thanks MaryAnn! I hope I am a little wiser too! My kids may have something to say about that though. LOL

  3. In the past 10 years cardmaking has taken over my life and was such a wonderful lifesaver during Covid. I’m enjoying it more and getting out of my comfort zone more, which is a good thing. Happy Anniversary to you, Jeanie.

    1. Thanks Hilda! I couldn’t agree more about cardmaking being a lifesaver during Covid! I am glad you are trying new things. It is always hard to venture out from our comfort zone!

  4. Congratulations on your ten year stampaversary! The biggest change for me in the last ten years has been becoming a GRANDMA…the best job ever!!!

    1. Thanks Juleen! COngratulations on becoming a grandma! I am a bit jealous…hopefully one day I will have grandchildren! In the meantime we adopted a rescue dog and he has brought so much love and joy into our lives!!!

  5. Thank you for creating such beautiful cards and sharing them with us. Love every minute I spend making cards. Happy Anniversary!

    1. Thanks Nancy! I love spending time making cards too! It’s so relaxing and brings me joy knowing I get to send to someone and hopefully make them smile!

  6. I’ve learned that changes don’t have to be scary. Looking back ten years reminds me of all of the good things that have happened so that I can anticipate the possibilities and the opportunities yet to come instead of just dwelling on the losses and sadnesses of those past years. Thanks for reminding us and encouraging us to do the same in our “craft lives” as well.

    1. Nancy, you have a great perspective! Change isn’t easy…each day is a new adventure! Have a great day!

  7. Congratulations on your 10 years. I not so scared to try different types of cards now.

    1. Thanks so much! I’m glad you are trying different types of cards. Reach out if you ever have any questions. Have a great day!

  8. Congratulations on your 10 years. You have brought a lot of wonderful creative ideas into my little stamp world. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thanks Pat! And you have inspired me to create! Thank you for your support over the years!

  9. As a new demonstrator 9 years ago I was so hesitant – I checked with my upline before each class I offered fro advice on the cards I was going to teach. Now I love searching blogs and Pinterest for cards I like and new techniques or designs for my classes.

  10. Congrats Jeanie on your anniversary with SU. You have done well my friend. I had 3 customers and now basically down to one since one died and the other buys from her sister. So, I struggle at times. But, I am finding more places to donate my cards to and working pretty hard on clearing out papers. I still struggle keeping stamps. I am always up for trying a new technique or using something new and different. If it didn’t work out, I am finding it easier to just put them in the recycle bin. Working on putting photos in the gallery and thinking my stuff is not good enough.

    1. Your stuff is certainly good enough!!! Go for it! It is so nice that yu find places to donate your cards. Just think how many smiles you are putting on people’s faces!
