HELLO SATURDAY

This is the time of year when it is normal for me to kit round 1,000 kits for classes in September. Yes, events are not only a lot of work but a lot of class kit prep. I lost my help, but that is okay. I have a backup plan and I know day by day we can do it. If you have ever taken a workshop from me, you know that I want my workshops to be stress free with instructions and photos and beautiful class kits. I am all about learning and doing techniques. I planned my 2014 schedule with my husband. We thought he had "beaten" the cancer. So we made the decision that I would KEEP GOING and with the help my amazing mother in law and family we would make it all work. I realize what a blessing this is. 

My husband has to have 24/7 care when he gets home and I could not continue to work without the help from his mother. She is such a blessing. I can't imagine trying to run my company without her help. The part about my Carol that truly helps is that she does things that honestly I am not great at. It's no secret I am "not" the best cook. I can cook, but I am very much a simple cook. Carol has the time and talent to cook from scratch. She does everything healthy and organic. She takes care of the house and will come and help "deeper" clean the house to help us. I am sharing this because I   simply can't do it all. There is always a "time & season" in life. Right now, we are definitely at a time and season that we need her help. I can't do it all, but I'm trying hard to balance it all. TODAY... I am so happy to say that I am smiling. I am not being so hard on myself like I did when Tyler was first diagnosed and hospitalized. I needed help but just didn't want to ask. Guess what? it's okay to need help. I am using each day... each hour to be as productive as I can be... FAMILY first is always the way to be. Everything else always works out if you make time for the things that truly matter most!

So next weekend I will be going to see Matt, Kayla and the grand babies. Oh my... I wish Tyler could go with me. He can't and I know it's so hard for him. He still has not been able to see Tenneson or Maxson and Zellie (for a year now). It is because of their age and immunization. The doctors advised him to not be around anyone under the age of 14 and younger kids are definitely a no no. If he happened to get sick, it could literally kill him. He has no immunity. So next weekend I am visiting a store in Long Beach, CA and staying with Matt's family. It's still quick... Friday- Sunday but I really KNEW I needed to see them and wanted to teach for Martha. I have NO idea if there are any spots left. I do know the LIFE EMPORIUM page pocket class sold out as soon as she announced it. The others one were close to selling out last I heard. I want to share this workshop that I will be teaching.... 

This is the DAY 25 of my 30 days of INSPIRATION too-



This is my BRAND NEW GOLD HEART foiled CLEAR 4x4 album. I wanted to show that there is NOTHING little about this memory book. 


I know many of you take countless photos on your phone. I understand... it's easy. How many of you print out your photos though? How many of you are just taking photos and then they will be lost memories- since they are not being printed?


This is the BIGGEST little memory book. I can't wait to teach it. I am teaching it for the first time in CA, at Scrapbook Expos in Ontario CA and in Mesa, AZ and
AUSTRALIA in November...
*just announced...
join me at PAGES 2 SCRAP
November 6, 7, 8th
MORE LATER...


The TC gold foil 4x4 cards are stunning.... 


I wanted to show that you can and will
decorate and embellish the story
even in a smaller format.
*new TC label stickers and more!!!!!
loving my black and white cabana stripe cards in this set.
LOVE 2x2 as well...


My goal is to show how LITTLE doesn't have to be
boring or hard to use.
So if you are interested... watch for this workshop in California next weekend and at the two expos and AUSTRALIA.
Trust me, you will want to take this workshop is you are taking countless photos (especially on your phone) and have no idea what to do with them!!!!!


TODAY... I love Saturday's... I am enjoying the day with my boys. I  will be visiting my husband of course too. I miss him every second of the day. I wanted to take my boys to a movie and just enjoy some   mom & son time together. I love that they love being with me too. HAPPY SATURDAY...

A happy Saturday to you too. I like you have a fantastic mum in law, she will always go that extra mile for you no questions asked, would not swap her for anything. Hope you have a great weekend. xx

Dee Fisher said...

Wonderful that you lovely mom in law is able to help you and her son out. Hope your husband is doing well. Enjoy time with your sons and other family as you can. Best wishes for you all.

Kim said...

I follow your blog and get such inspiration from you. Thank you!! I would gladly volunteer to help you kit your classes if you need help. I live kinda close, in Bountiful.

Elaine said...

It is totally OK to need help. This was hard for me to accept as well. I know you have deep faith, and remember Miracles happen EVERY single day! Prayers from your friends in Georgia!

You are one amazing women. I would love to have 1/10 of your positivity and that is why I visit you blog daily. You are real and honest about life's ups and downs. Cherish your m.i.l. Mine passed two months ago. She had a mouth on her and the last year of her life I felt like I was walking on eggshells thinking I was going to say the wrong thing. But now that she is gone, I am probably the first one who has the tears flowing when we speak of her. I miss her and wished I would have had the courage to break through her barriers and tell her so. We are all pulling for Ty.

Pam Makis said...

Wish I were close to lend a hand with kits, cooking or housework. Bless your mother in-law, she is a gem! Prayers for you, Ty and the family.

Poppy Black said...

The Thirty Days of Inspiration are so wonderful, but we are so lucky to have you as our amazing inspiration as well. My thoughts are with you and your darling Ty, plus the whole family. I adore the dear little BIG memory book. It is so perfect and stylish! Big hugs for you XXXXX

Hey Teresa -
Hope Ty is making it through these first few days after the transplant - I know they are rough!
Just wanted to let you know that Carol & I will be in Las Vegas early and will be more than happy to help you with any kitting or other things that need to be done. All you need to do is yell.

Lynn from North Carolina :)
