So, I had a new adventure this week. I attended a class on Japanese bookbinding at the local Tandy Leather store (recently opened in South Park Meadows) and it turns out that I was the only person who attended the class, so what a lucky girl I was to have had so much personal attention. I have done some bookbinding in the past but it had been several years and so I was a bit anxious to undertake yet another crafting challenge. It was fantastic. The instructor has been an instructor for forty years and was so passionate about the subject that I was reminded of why I love crafting so much – the joy of empowering other people to accomplish things they never imagined for themselves is so great! Can’t wait to take the journal making class on November 3, 2018 with my son.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love creating things (mostly papercrafts), and that although this crafty compulsion wasn’t evident until I was well into my adult years, it has not subsided with age. For the past four years + I have been affiliated with Fun Stampers Journey, a direct sales company based in Phoenix, Arizona. The company is extraordinary…high quality products and a passion for customer service. I have loved every minute of my affiliation so far, but late last month, we received the news that the company is changing its model and will no longer have a direct sales approach…in fact, it is merging with Spellbinder’s (also one of my faves) and will be featuring the products of both companies. I hope to join their affiliate program shortly so watch for news and product features to follow. I have so enjoyed the community I have met through Fun Stamper’s Journey and hope to continue the adventure with the new format. Many thanks to the people who have served in the Journey Station and made the lives of over two thousand coaches better through their service. You have been a blessing to all of us…
