Change is in the wind for me again . . .  Over the last 8 years, I have been exceedingly fortunate to work closely with Linda, and all the staff at A Muse, and I cherish all the experiences, and things that I have learned, and relationships that have blossomed from my time there.  It has been awesome!  I am incredibly lucky to have made so many good friends–people I will always, always hold dear!

But, if there's one thing I've always felt deeply, it's that you'll never regret being there when your family needs you.  Recently, both my own parents and my in-laws have been experiencing some health issues, and they need me more. And, I will be there! *grin*

And, now, I have some other news to share!

Here's the "back story": Ellen and I have been friends for the longest time–we first met (virtually) on Splitcoaststampers.com, back in the early, early days (shoot, hope that doesn't tell our age!!! LOL!).  I'll never forget the look on the Mister's face when I told him I was going to meet "my internet friend, Ellen" for lunch and spend the day crafting. His eyes kinda bulged out of his head . . . *chuckle* I told him I'd be perfectly safe; "She's a STAMPER, for cryin' out loud!", I said.

Ellen introduced me to fresh mozzarella, basil, tomatoes and balsamic vinegar that day; I was immediately hooked. And, we've been buddies ever since! Not just cuz of the food, tho. *chuckle*  She's got a smile that radiates sunshine, and a heart o' gold! If you've ever chatted with her online or met her in person, you already know that.

Recently, Ellen invited me to be part of her Education & Inspiration Team!  And, I was thrilled to accept, because it really works well with my current situation! I'll be sharing fun ideas and designs to try on a regular basis and hope you'll pop in! Here's a peek at my first project:
