TODAY... It's my BIRTHDAY!!!!

It is day 8
I am celebrating my birthday today and will be at SPC trade show showing all my new collections to everyone.

I am GIDDY to show you my new WOOD pieces that are die cut. They come with both of my Christmas collections.
They are actual wood and you get SIX per package. *yes, I glittered the tree on the book stand.


This is my TINSEL & COMPANY papers. I rolled them up and tied a bow around them and hung the die cut ornament. I did nothing to this. It's gorgeous. PS everyone is loving this "glam chic" Christmas line... ha ha- that is what a buyer called it yesterday. I guess I made her year. She had been wanting a line like this forever.


This is CANDY CANE LANE.

Can you see the candy cane paper?
I am in love. Oh, loving the STAR ornament.
There are MORE designs.
I am warning you now that they are going to SELL OUT fast!
Just after one day at the trade show I can see both lines are going fast and everyone loves the unique and "glam" additions I have done with two Christmas lines this year.

I taught a class yesterday to the Crafters Home group. I am so grateful for this. I love teaching... I love sharing. To me this isn't work. It's just what I was born to do. 



We are at SPC show all week. This was set up day. It started with a 10x10 space. I love how truly DIY a show is for us. It was so busy yesterday and I head back today. It is in SLC and so love how close it is for me. RIGHT NOW... this is such a blessing. I am so fortunate to have Brie and Sean helping me. I will keep sharing  from the show via Facebook and instagram too. 

Booth set up is always fun. Sean loves all the "let's put together the tables" work. He is the best! 

It's my birthday.
So I am just celebrating
this morning with my boys until
I head to the SPC show. I film a few shows
there today too.
I am so GRATEFUL for each and every day.

I celebrate each day and each year.
I don't want to take a moment for granted.
I am happy in spite of many things that
make my heart very sad.

Last night, we kneeled today as a family and prayed.
I started crying as my husband offered the prayer. THIS is what keeps me going. This is why today... is another amazing day.
Ty is struggling right now. He is fighting. We are fighting with him. The best gift ever is having him with me today and everyday. There is nothing better than having two boys... young men, age 15 and 16 kneel beside us and pray. This is a gift to have
my boys, my children... my family.
We realize Heavenly Father is in charge and
he is guiding us, loving us and supporting us. This is what I posted on my Facebook page- and yes, I was crying as I wrote it:


TODAY is my BIRTHDAY. My heart is FULL to the brim. I am so thankful and grateful. Each day we have is a blessing. I know that right now the trials only make me stronger and APPRECIATE more what I have. I am passionate about LIFE and sharing LOVE. I have the best husband, children, family and friends. My life is surrounded by those who love me. I shared on my blog today a sweet experience of my husband, sons and I last night. I know that LIFE is be cherished, celebrated and documented EACH day. I love that my son Zach wants a photo of our family TODAY together. This is GOLD. This is what matters most. I realize what matters most. TODAY I am celebrating the LIFE and LOVE that is bursting from my heart. I am celebrating ALL of you who love me... who inspire me. Many of you have NO IDEA what you bring into my life. I love and thank you all for your support. I am so happy in spite of the trials that are refining me right now. I am so busy that often I wonder how can I do anything else. Yet, I find that I can and am doing this. I hope TODAY you will celebrate TODAY with me too. I am going to pretend that CAKE has ZERO calories today. I am going to go get my favorite frozen yogurt and make it LARGE. I am going to continue to praise God for helping me with my struggles and for the daily OVERLOAD of blessing. I am happy despite the trials. CELEBRATE TODAY!!!!!

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Teresa! You are such an inspiration (I too was crying while reading your post). You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers and I'm glad your hubby is fighting. I wish him all the best.
Professionally, I'm loving this new glamorous line (all that luscious gold) and I'm hoping I can grab some before it's all gone! Last, by certainly not least, I must say what a handsome young man Zach is (that's a great photo)!

Sheri Landon said...

Happy Birthday. May it be a day filled with joy and love. Let the celebration continue all month. Everyone should get to celebrate their birthday for a whole month. And I absolutely love your Christmas Lines. Christmas is always my favorite time of year and I love all the special papers that come out and want them all in my stash.

Paula said...

May God continue to bless you and your family with His everlasting comfort and love and support. I have followed your blog and bought your products for many many years, and you are an inspiration to me. We are fighting a similar battle and are both in the same stage of that battle, yet ever hopeful. I wish you peace, love and a shiny future that is as beautiful as your writing, your products, and your family.

I've always loved your designs and now I know why... we share the same birthday!! What a wonderful surprise to me seems I didn't know anyone crafty famous who had the same 'cusp' birthday. Sending you lots of belated birthday wishes... and Celebrate each day with your loved ones around you. Hugs from Canada!!
