Several people have asked how I'm doing with the Stampin' Up business. That got me thinking ( I really do that too much I think, hehe) about a whole bunch of things.
I truly do love being a SU demo but I think for now my best choice is to just be a hobbyist. I still plan on giving card classes, but they won't be strictly SU products. After being with TAC for four years, and being a craft-a-holic for almost 11 years...I just have so much stuff that I need to use up.
I was really going to push myself to do all SU projects but the truth is, I like so many different stamp companies and supplies that I was making myself crazy and not creating at all (okay so I was creating but I haven't really liked much lately that I've created).
So finally I sat down and really examined things. I wonder if I'm the only one who gets so caught up in having things that I just don't use them all.
I tell Sam all the time that I feel like a crack addict...I think about stamping all the time, always looking for my next "fix"....spending money we don't truly have on things and just repeating the cycle.
And then beating myself up for not creating things 24 hours a day with all the supplies.
So no more, hopefully. I'm really focusing on doing what "I" want...using what I want. If I make some sales with SU that's fine...I'll still do okay with the minimums and such but I'm not stressing over it.
I just plan on using whatever I'm in the mood for, so you might see some old stamps or what not....because when it all boils down this craft is meant to be fun and for yourself...not to stress over.
Sorry for a rambling post again....it helps me to get things out sometimes.
Off to create...have a wonderful night!
