Mojo Monday 474 "Best Fishes"

Happy Wednesday All!!  A LOT has happened since my last post!  SO let me fill you in...

On Thursday, October 27th, I received an email from A Muse Studio announcing that the CEO was retiring and they were closing the company.  I was honestly stunned.  I had only been a consultant for 43 days.  43 days!!  I had resigned from CTMH with GREAT hopes of what I could do with the product line from A Muse Studio, only to find out that everything I had been promised with A Muse Studio was not going to happen.  I had invested quite a bit over that 43 days to build my "stash" and build my business with them, only to find out it was all for not.  What was I to do?  

Well, after the initial shock of the announcement, I talked it over with my hubby and friends and decided to sign back up with Stampin' Up!  I couldn't be happier with my choice and have found a new place I can call "home".  I have found SO much love and support in my new team and can't wait to see where this journey takes me!  

ANYHOO!!  Along with the change in companies, I am making some changes on my blog as well!!  For starters, I am going to start including the measurements for all the cards that I create!!  That way if you like what you see, you will be able to recreate it without guessing what I used on it OR what the measurements are for each piece.  I am also going to start making videos!!  But please bare with me as I find what works.

SO Here is the Mojo Monday sketch for this week....

And here is my card.  I just LOVE the "Jar of Love" stamp set and coordinating die set "Everyday Jars"!  There are SO many possibilities with this set and am having a BLAST creating with it!

Card Dimensions

My card is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
Basic Grey CS - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 (card base)

I love this Blog post.Sounds like some big Curve balls thrown your way have helped you arrive right where you should be.The changes with adding dimensions will help all of us who are now falling in love with your work.I am a new fan. Thank you for the inspiration. I'll be back often to check in on what your doing next. Oh, I'm so happy to see a card that is NOT a holiday card this time of year. Thanks again, Cathy Lee

Cathy, Thank you SO SO much for your sweet comment!! It brought more than a smile to my face, it brought tears to my eyes. I am more than honored to have you as a new fan!! I create because I LOVE it, but I share it in hopes that I will inspire just one person. But today, YOU have inspired ME to continue on this journey! Thank YOU for that!!
