Welcoming in the New …..

Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens –  Leanne Womack 

Good Morning Dear Friends,

As I sit here writing to you all today I am filled with so many emotions.

Today marks a big day for me in my “creative career”.  Today is my last tutorial for the Jessica Sporn Design Team.  WOW – when this Journey started last year it felt like I had so much time.  So much time to be able to create tons of projects to showcase Jessica’s beautiful stamps and stencils and to be a part of her amazing team with all of the other amazing artists.  As I sit here typing today I can’t believe it’s over.  One year gone in a flash.  I guess that is how life goes, but wow!

Reflecting on the past year has (well to be honest brought tears to my eyes).  Being offered a spot on Jessica’s team has opened so many doors for me but more than that it has allowed me to create friendships.  One in particular that I will forever be grateful for and that’s the friendship of my sweet friend Karen Gaunt.  She has been there for me so many times through this past year and all I can say is that personally it’s been a rough year for me (sheesh this going on 2 in a row lol).  But seriously had Jessica not given me the chance, believed in me I’m not sure where I would be right now.  So I am sending out a HUGE heartfelt thank you to Jessica, please be sure to stop by and check out her site here .

Here is a link to one of my favorite tutorials that I created for one of the blog hops while I was on the team.

So very ironic that I also have some NEW exciting news to share on this same day…..

I have been selected to be a part of the Tiare Smith Designs Creative Team.  If you don’t know Tiare Smith here is a link to her website so you can check her out.  I know that you are all going to love her as much as I do.  Her work is beautiful first and foremost, but beyond her amazing artistic talent she is fun, and funny and REAL!  I met her in the online collaborative class that we both are teaching in:  Hacking the Colorwheel .

It’s an honor to be a part of her new team and I’m excited for this new adventure and journey that I’m about to embark on, with her and the other Team Members!

And one more very important thing before I go.  I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU and SHOUT OUT to all of you as well.  If it wasn’t for all of you amazing beautiful souls I would not be where I am today.  You all lift me up and push me forward with your loving comments, your encouragement, and by taking the time to connect with me.  Each one of you is in my heart and I am so glad that you have chose to share your time with me and join me in this journey of life!

Have an amazing day my dear friends xxoo – Sherry

The project I have to share with you today is Love themed in a Shabby Chic style and  centers on a quote that ended up coming up with since I couldn’t find one that I really liked.  And since Valentine’s day is about love I think it’s important to remember to love yourself so this is the quote on my page today:

Don’t Forget to give it

to the most important

Person in your life…..

You”
