SHOULD I SHARE??????

SHOOT... I did not plan to share this but here goes...

So I decided to share some more private STUFF. I have been really neglecting myself for a while. I stopped exercising, and was on a LOVE diet. Don't get me wrong... being in love this awesome but I gained weight and because I am so happy I haven't really worried about it. However, for the past few months I was just off. I felt physically not okay. I was having heart weirdness, numbness and waking up all night for hours. I just felt bad. Headaches and then I got sick and could not get over it. So I woke up one day SCARED of how my body was feeling. I made an appt to go to the doctor. I had a complete blood work up. A EKG and that day I decided to do a medically supervised health and weight loss journey. You guys I feel so much better. I was given the green light and in my first week... I lost 14 lbs. I drank 100 + ounces of water every day. Honestly about 125!!!! I gave up all soda. Cold turkey! No more diet mtn dew. The plan said I could have 12 oz a day but I'm way too addicted to just drink one can a day so I decided to give it up totally. I wasn't going to share because it's so personal and I'm really so happy. I don't think a certain weight or size defines you. I love myself and have acceptance of me. However I wanted to feel better again and of course losing weight is a bonus and goal. So I'm day 10 and dang I feel FABULOUS. I'm sleeping again!🎉   So I will be sharing my journey here and on my blog. Why? Because YOU may need to be brave and do something you have been putting off. Is it a new job? Losing weight? Working on a problem in your life? Just let go of the FEAR and do it. Talk to yourself and be positive! I told myself I would loss 10 lbs the first week. I committed and kept telling myself FAILURE is not an OPTION. I'm at the beginning of being fit and healthy again but I'm so happy I'm FINALLY doing it. #livelifeinallcaps #weightloss #justdoit #hateshots

So I will be sharing my journey with you. I know that we all have the SAME struggles. It's REAL life. So I am not posting the program I am on publicly for NOW. I want to do it for a few weeks and give you the HONEST,  REAL...this is how it is for me. I am just like YOU!

So last week I realized my favorite clothes did not look to great and I even went to Dress Barn to get some new clothes for CHA. Seriously, they have stylish clothes in sizes from 6-twentysomething. The prices were incredible and good quality. 

The first week was the most complicated. I ate ONLY protein. Yes, lean protein. I ate out twice. Friday night at Goodwood (I had a chicken breast) and the Jazz game. It can be done! This week I am adding and having small portions of fruit and vegetables. 

TIP for this week:
DRINK electrolyte water if you are trying to lose weight. It has SAVED me! I get the Propel in grape or peach flavor (yum!) When your starting a program and your dieting your body is LIKE... woah, what is going on here! 
So this water is the perfect little secret to help you
combat the yucky feelings your body will
have when going into a program that now limits your sugars, fat and carbs. PROMISE- try it out!
I drink 16 oz a day of electrolyte water and the rest just regular water.

Now let's talk about CHA!
I leave tomorrow for the show.
I am super EXCITED.

24/7- CHA LIVE with CLEARSNAP



One of the things I have to do is feel inspired pretty much 24/7.
My first meeting this morning was amazing and we walked a store with my products. We are finalizing the new product design and of course my mind went RACING thinking of new products. It never stops. 
I guess that is a good thing. 
I wake up every night. Yes, every single night with designs on my mind and of course deadlines.

It's hard for me just to SHUT IT OFF. I try really hard but I'm
always contemplating WHAT'S NEXT. 

Today I worked on my CHA samples and make n takes. I will be in four of my partners booth and debuting NEW TC products next week.

If you are not attending, I am doing FACEBOOK LIVE and INSTAGRAM LIVE from the show.

I am doing a show on Saturday with Clearsnap. I do my pigment inks and wood mounted stamps with them.
Excited to share what is NEW! 

Live from CHA...
I will show you my MOTHERS DAY wood photo card pullout box. I was so inspired by this box. It was natural wood. It was 5x5 and I painted it with GLOSS WHITE paint. I then added the pink peony from a  flower bouquet that I purchased from Jo-Ann fabrics and crafts today.


Inside is a pull out photo accordion card. Guess what?

I even used my stamps and inks (they are the BEST... I am not kidding!!!!). So watch for the LIVE videos of the show. I will be in the booth at Clearsnap on Saturday around 5:00pm. 
(I will post my full schedule by Monday)


The inside is about 4x4. Each section of the accordion is photos, my stamped images and my "new" cooper labeling stickers. 

Also, if you are going to my Teresa Collins Vegas event- I just started a INSTAGRAM event page today. SO join us! We also have a Facebook page for paid attendees. We have people attending from around the WORLD!!!

CRAFT & HOBBY ASSOCIATION IS NEXT WEEK!!!!!


CHA is next week in Phoenix, Arizona. I have lost count over the years at how many trade shows I have attended. This year I am super excited that it will be in AZ for the very first time. Thousands of people will be there and it's the main show for the Craft industry. So of course I can't wait to show my new products. I will be in my partners booths. I have lots of meetings set up and I'm thrilled for my team to be with me. 

I'm not showing sneak peeks just yet, but I am beyond thrilled.  I thought I would share some HINTS with you about some big things happening.


My partnership with Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts is ongoing. I am releasing my BIGGEST program ever next month. FEB 2017 Nationwide to Jo-Ann exclusively. It's been something I have wanted to do for so long. I have felt this program needed to be a extensive product line to do it justice.

(gentry in front of my display at a Jo-Ann store location)




My collection GOLD GLAM is there now!!!!! If you have not seen it yet, well.... GO and see the cutest GLAM line ever!!!!
It's so beautiful and I'm so obsessed with the gold pineapple brads, gold bows, and well... the planners and notebooks are just my favorite. 


I have been doing motivational speaking for years now and it seems I get more and more opportunities to share my story both in business and life.  I have some exciting trips and opportunities coming up!!!!! 

Just a few places on the 2017 schedule to watch for me: New Zealand, Australia, Germany, New York, Texas, California, Las Vegas, etc. 


I want everyone to FOLLOW THEIR OWN DREAMS and know that it's possible. I am so excited for those of you joining me at the TC Vegas Event this year. 



Okay more... HINTS.... Xyron and I are STILL doing BIG & AMAZING products together. Hmmmm.... let's just say-


NEW Teresa Collins products with Xyron will be at the CHA show next week. Any guesses?


TERESA COLLINS SCISSORS/ TOOLS/PUNCHES AND GOLD TRIMMER 
WITH FISKARS


Next week, live from the show you will see the BRAND NEW products that I have coming out with Fiskars. Also, join me for make n takes at their booth!!!!

I will be in the Silhouette booth at CHA showing NEW TC design store images and doing a GOLD PINEAPPLE TC make n take on Saturday from 3:00-5:00 pm.

All you need is love is my brand new design that went into the Silhouette Design Store this week. Just in time for Valentines!!!!


I love working with Clearsnap and I know I'm biased but my INKS and wood stamps are the BEST!!
ha ha... It took me years to do inks and the new stamps because I wanted them to be perfect. Seriously, I am so in LOVE with my pigment inks. Come see what I have NEW at the show. 



Thank you for ALL the massive support to the Hobby Lobby TC Vinyl Wall Art. I am thankful that I am designing more and more. 



This one really meant so much to me. I did it for TYLER and everyone who is FIGHTING and needs to be a WARRIOR. It is in the TOP of the sales for the chain and I'm so thankful. Every time I see this I am reminded of Tyler. I know he is so cheering me on. 




2017 is exciting. I will not be showing the new Artwork at CHA but you will most definitely see it soon. I get home from CHA, Sunday to turn around to take a flight out the next morning to meet at Hobby Lobby for the day.  This is exciting times!!!



Now on a personal note- I wanted to share my gratitude. I have been doing "this" a long time. I love that I get to design products that hopefully INSPIRE both in the home, life and personally. I was getting my hair done today and we were talking about the NEGATIVE in the world. It's so everywhere!!!!!  I realized we can do SOMETHING. We can SHINE. We can personally share our LIGHT with the world. For me, I try to do it through my products. I try to do it by sharing my journey.  I simply want to live a life of NO regrets. I want to make my wrongs RIGHT and forgive myself and others along the way. I want to make a difference with the time I have been given.

I hope to see MANY of you at CHA. If not, I will be doing FACEBOOK LIVE and posting updates here, on instagram (TERESACOLLINSDESIGNS) and of course (you can always follow my "private" instagram page too- TERESACOLLINSWEBBER). I don't do SNAPCHAT publically. My kids and husband will tell you that YOU are not missing out. I might be obsessed with the filters and love to send them videos. 
My personal instagram is open to anyone (if you can handle the craziness!!!).

It takes EFFORT.... BIG CHANGES




I thought of this quote as I watched a snapchat from Kayla. I'm so proud of her. She is going back to school to get her interior design degree. GO HER!!!!! Matt and her have 4 children now so I was really proud of her for making this big decision. Especially when it will NOT be easy to balance kids, a super busy husband & his work demands and now school. One of her professors talked about TALENT. She posted a small segment on her snapchat. I totally agreed with what he shared.

I think I hear people say to me WAY too often. I'm not talented. I also hear, I just don't know WHAT my talent is. I know sometimes it takes us a while to figure it out.  TALENT is nothing without putting forth the hard work and effort.

I have some BIG news to share. My cute and talented husband has left the law firm that he was a partner at. Yes, he is officially on his own. I am super proud of him and for this massive desire to start his own law practice.

I could not be more PROUD of this guy. He is smart and driven.  Also, he is SUPER cute. (of course, I have to say this- and it's true!!!!)



So TODAY I wanted to tell him how he has inspired me. I know he is going to DO and BE amazing. So if you are looking for an attorney, he's the BEST!!!!

Mr. Webber was the Chairman of Clyde Snow’s Health Care Practice Group. In over 15 years of practice, he has represented a wide range of health care professionals, entities, and facilities in both DOPL proceedings and civil litigation. He also represents clients in complex commercial litigation, products liability, and other areas in both state and federal courts. Mr. Webber has successfully tried a number of cases to a jury as lead counsel, and has argued before the Utah Supreme Court and the U.S. Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The reality is YOU can be so massively talented at something and not be as successful as you would like.  Brian and I both talk endlessly about this and especially as he has been preparing to leave his partnership in the law firm.  I know he will be so embarrassed that I shared his achievements today BUT I am so profoundly proud of his FAITH and desire to go out on his own.

Brian- I believe in YOU!

Change is always hard. He was blessed in that his departure from the firm was beyond supportive. Brian is leaving with such support and for this he is greatly thankful. He will greatly miss his colleagues but he knew it was the right time. I know he will SHINE and excel in his new venture.

What does it take???? Well, EFFORT. This quote and my thought is that it's really begins with our EFFORTS.
We can have ALL the talent in the world but if we are not working HARD in our efforts we will not see the success. I am thankful to be on this new and exciting journey with him.


Right now, I am in full blown CHA and NEW product project mode. Yes, I am living in sweatpants and hat hair. It's not pretty!!!!

I have a brand new program being DEBUTED next month nationwide exclusively at JoAnn Fabric and Crafts in addition to CHA in two short weeks. I needed to design four projects in less than a day and get them to headquarters for signage and promotions. I mailed them yesterday at almost 5pm but I made the deadline. I put all my focus and effort on making the deadline.  I still have CHA make n takes to design and meetings to finalize and set up for the show. 

I am thrilled it is in Phoenix Arizona for the first time. Are you going? If you are. I will be in all my partners booth and you can join me to see my newest products with them. Also, I'm doing some very cool MAKE N TAKES.  I will post the schedule next week. 

So the reality is, I'm barely eating and going around like a crazy woman trying to get this done and prepare for more meetings. I design pretty much every day and it's just a never ending job. Thankfully, it's my PASSION. 
I get home from CHA on Sunday night and the next morning I leave at 8:00 am to fly to HOBBY LOBBY for a meeting. I'm not complaining... I love what I do so very much.
