BIG EXCITING THINGS... TIME TO SHARE!!!!!



It's a BOY!!!!!!


This is my NEW little GRANDSON.
This is COOPER. 
We are calling him Coop or Cooper.
He came into the world just 12 days ago.
He is stunningly gorgeous.
Gentry and Devan are doing well.
He spent some time in the NICU because he had a lung infection.
He is doing amazing now and was home a few days after he was born.




He came to visit me at my house on Wednesday when he was ten days old. I can't tell you how in LOVE we are with him. OUR family... we feel the blessing of his beautiful life in our family. Taylor is preparing now for her due date with twins and loves holding little Coop. THIS is what it is all about! 


McKay is out of school (BYU) for the Summer, but basically lives at our house. Yes, she pays rent to stay HOME... yes, she misses us. She is preparing for her service visit to Peru soon. I am so proud of her. I love this photo of us. We were fighting over who was going to hold Cooper.


I am biased but is he not the most beautiful little boy. His mommy is my Gentry. I love her with all my heart. She became a mom and WOW could I not have been more proud of the way she is loving and cherishing her son. Devan and Gentry are so united in love and with that will raise this beautiful baby boy. 




I am the happiest GRANDMOTHER. I am convinced that last Sunday when I visited them that he was "STOP taking my photo!!!!" I can't help it. He is so precious and so good. He rarely even cries but does like to stay up at night.


What a HUGE blessing to have our family have so many wonderful things happening to us. Cooper is ONE of the most FABULOUS miracles in my heart and life.



This is me. HOLDING my sweet grand baby for the very first time in the NICU. I was so happy that I don't think I could stop smiling. THIS is what I live for. FAMILY.....  


His little rough start only made our family unite more in prayer and we all felt such peace. We loved him instantly. Devan is the best dad and I adore my son in law. 


This is from Wednesday. They are standing on the porch at the house I just moved into. (yes, we officially moved on Saturday). This is their family. Cooper is only TEN days old. I was so happy to have them visit with me that day. Our entire family got together and we laughed so much. We all love the new home and it really feels "right." 

Soon there will be even more changes. A little boy and girl will be coming in August to Taylor and Travis. I am overly elated at this. This girl is 25 weeks along now. I am preparing for her big baby shower on July 11th at my home. Did I mention I have boxes EVERYWHERE? Yes, for her I would do ANYTHING. I am honored to do it. I know she is so nervous having two babies at once. She was calculating the diapers alone... yikes! So thank you girls who surprised her with BOXES of baby stuff. YOU know who you are and you are KIND beyond words. Taylor was so taken back and just called me bawling. Yes, I thought she was hurt and I calmed her down to tell me it was a GOOD cry. I love that others good will truly bless her family. THANK YOU!


We just LOVE being together. We love each other and that is really ALL that counts. 


I took this photo for Taylor this week too. How cute is her pregnant belly? I just can't believe it. PS- this was natural. No medication and it was the first month that they decided to try to get pregnant. 



Now this is my boys. They own my heart too. We moved this past week, but it has been a process for months. My boys have stepped up and sometimes they didn't. HA... true... high school boys. Thankfully, McKay and Britney helped me pack and move too. My entire neighborhood came last Saturday. I imagine I had over 50 amazing people show up to help me. I was OVERWHELMED and kept crying. Cute Taylor just kept telling me... "mom, it's okay. They want to help you. It's alright." She was so true. It was two MASSIVE U-Haul loads, 2 trucks, my car and more and we got MOST of it.

I am in my "new" home and it is a huge blessing. I am convinced this happened from inspiration. I felt strongly to move and everything simply happened effortlessly. I see my kids thriving in the new home and they are so happy.

I have BIG BIG news to share.
I am now engaged to be married.
I am outrageously lucky to have found love again.
In my wildest dreams... I would never have planned this new journey in my life.


This is Brian and he is amazing. He treats me like a princess and we fell in love instantly. It started one day when we met at a local restaurant at 5:30 pm and ordered sushi. We sat and talked until 10:00 pm without touching the food. It was instant and I felt like I had known him my entire life. We became instant best friends. I never thought this would happen again for me. NEVER... but I am so thankful it has. He is the one that makes me smile again. I truly had lost myself. I had to find myself and I did. I did not ever think I would every remarry because I would never settle. It would have to be the "perfect" person for me and for my family. Then I met him. At first it was hard. My girls did not even want to meet him. I understood and gave them that space. I knew that God had brought Brian into my life and heart. I knew this was just not a ordinary type of love. I knew he would be the one that I would spend the rest of my life with from the very start. 



He gets me. Yes, he understands me and my heart to the core. I felt the same for him. He is so kind, giving and loves people and life. We both love diet coke...ha and just are both easy going in nature. He also is strong in his values and faith and this was of upmost importance to me. 

He supports my crazy life and schedule. He went to the NYC Stationery show this month to "see my world." He supported me and would go into Joann Fabric and Crafts stores and send me photos standing by my products. He has four amazing- fabulous children. We both put family first and love our children. 


We are now officially engaged- we are so thankful for this in our life. Our children will be there when we get married June 8th. It is such a joyous and happy occasion. I am so grateful for the tender influence he is on my teenage boys. He is so kind and accepting as our family talks about Tyler. He looks as we share photos or share stories. He is that GIANT of a man. 


We were in NYC and walked to Central Park and he gave me this beautiful ring. I can't tell you how happy I am. I never thought I could ever feel this way. I am so thankful that my children and his children will be there and that they are supporting us. We have loved joining our families and the process has been beautiful and I know God has truly brought this to each of us. I am forever grateful. On Mothers Day my children and I had the most beautiful private talk. We are FAMILY and FAMILIES love and always support each other. This new journey is just that a way for me to keep going, keep living and of course finding love again in my forties. I am FOREVER thankful that God somehow knew exactly what I needed. I hope to be the same for his children.

Let the haters hate! You are a warrior Teresa and I'm so happy for you and your family. No one has the right to tell you when you can fill your heart with love again. This is your journey and you deserve every ounce of happiness the world has to offer!

As I have never been a widow, I can not imagine what you went through while Ty was sick and dying and can not imagine how you even got out of bed after he passed. Grief is different for everyone. You look happy again when some people never get that chance. I am glad you are living your life the best way you can for YOU and your FAMILY! Don't let anyone try to dull your sparkle girl!!!!! Congrats of your engagement!!! Congrats on your new grandson and upcoming twins too!!!

Hey girl, Congrats to you and Brian, you deserve all of the happiness that you can get. Don't let the anonymous haters get you down, haters gonna hate, lol. Keep on loving and shining that light inside you, light attracts light and its no wonder that you attracted someone so amazing. Hugs to you both, and many happy years for your future!

Glad that you have found each other, but why not spend time getting to know each other? You have plenty of years ahead to spend together. I don't get why Mormons seem to rush into marriage ...

When you choose to make every aspect of your life public you should be prepared to hear the truth about yourself. Censorship by the likes of YOU? Hilarious.

Miranda Ratzlaff said...

Get of your moral high horse and go bother someone else. Just because she's a public figure doesn't mean you get to spew hate out at your every whim.

Stephanie said...

Ok...So, I rarely comment on anything....However (stepping up on my soapbox)...You people...you know...you who sit behind your computer screens...hating your lives...WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE??? It is SO easy to hide behind the Anon. moniker...so, easy to spew hate..so easy to attack when you truly are a bunch of jealous spiteful people. Ask yourself a couple of questions:

1) Do you personally know Teresa? I know she talks a lot about her life. She shares far more than other "scrapbooking" industry leaders...but, Do you know her?

2) Ask yourself how you would feel if she (or anyone for that matter) said the very things about you that you are saying about her.

3) For one second as you feel "because she talks about her life" it is OK for you to attack...take a look in the mirror...You DON'T know her..You know what she feels safe enough to share (and let me just tell you there are and have been quite a few of us tell her to stop!!)...You don't have the "right" to tell her how long or how she can grieve...You are NOT in her position you do NOT know...You can't...You seem from posts to feel so justified in slamming her with such vicious hate...REALLY...Is this how your Mother raised you to be??

So, to quote Glenda the good witch from The Wizard of Oz..."You have no power here! Begone, before someone drops a house on you, too!"

...(stepping off soapbox)..... <3

That Becky Girl said...

Not sure why all the anonymous commenters really give 2 shits about what TC does or doesn't do in her personal life - LOL. I just ordered some of the new black and gold Wanderlust papers and embellishments this morning! Keep making cute/trendy product and I'll keep buying it whether you are married or not. The only people that need to worry about your personal life are you and those involved in it!

kreativekate said...

I have to say, get a grip, people! It's been 6 months. It probably seems less, since Teresa has been quite open about sharing something so private as grief. I know plenty of people who did not wait THAT long to remarry. Bottom line? It's not up to you; only to Teresa and Brian. I, for one, say GO, GIRL! So happy that God blessed you again with someone that can be a life partner.

Anonymous said...

So happy for you! No one has the right to say anything negative if they have not walked in your shoes. You are too young to spend your life alone and I am sure Tyler would not have wanted that either. As long as your family and true friends are happy for you that is what matters. I love all of your products and you are just such an inspiration to me. Couldn't be happier for you with all of the grand baby news and finding love again!

Teresa I am so very happy for you ...I have lost my sister to cancer and know how that fight drains the life from you, even more so I imagine when it is your partner in life ..to see you so vibrant and happy and your beautiful family expanding is fabulous. You keep loving and creating and we will keep supporting you ..bless you and Brian and all your beautiful family, as for those posting negative comments please walk away from the computer screen and take some time to grow up, until you have walked in Teresa shoes you cannot even begin to imagine her life ...as Miss T Swift says haters gone hate hate hate xo

Kerrie Gurney said...

well said Stephanie ...and I love the Wizard of Oz reference :)

It was obvious, when her husband was sick that she was traveling all over while he was on his death bed. Her company meant more to her than her dying sick husband.

Anonymous said...

Lady, just stop; you must have something better to do with your time. I don't know them personally, but I'm sure Tyler encouraged her to try to live her life as normal as possible; he wouldn't let his illness hold her back. I'm positive her company did NOT mean more to her than him, but was viewed as a means to support her children after he was gone. Stop attacking her and try to get to the root of your problem as to why this bothers you so much.

Tracey Shenton said...

Jealous much? People like you are what creates so much hate in the world You have no idea what Teresa was like while she kept working to support her family. Oh course she kept working how else would she feed her family and pay for the medical care for Ty. She sacrificed a lot and I admire her strength to be able to keep going as Ty wanted her to

GwynnW said...

Congrats to you on all the blessings that are coming forward for yourself and your children. My dad was killed in a single vehicle car accident in Peru when I was 18, my younger sisters were 16 and 11.
My mom remarried just a year later after feeling the same way that she wouldn't find the right person. While we didn't necessarily support the idea we supported her and now we have the most wonderful stepdad and grandfather for our own children.
You have to do what works for you because as you know very well, you only have one life to live and you must live it to the fullest.
PS I find it disgusting that people post such hateful things and hide from what they say.

Anonymous said...

I lost my mother to cancer recently and I would be DEVASTATED if my father met someone, dated them and got engaged to them within 6 months! Although my siblings and I are open to him finding happiness again 6 months is way too soon. Especially being she has been posting photos of him for around 2 months already. Don't call us haters for making these comments as they are valid reactions. And won't this be marriage number 3 for Teresa? Hard to believe that most of the world is fighting for the rights for same sex marriage when you religious zealots marry so flippantly....

Anonymous said...

Too soon in my opinion...when you have been married 3 times is a sign that you to make some cbanges in your personal life ....Love is beautiful...just slow down a bit...first a mom, THEN a woman....

Anonymous said...

I always get uplifted when I read your blog; such a beautiful outlook on life, a lovely family and oh the babies...so adorable and precious. Not only do you, and your family uplift my spirit, but you give me hope of more happiness and joy. I too have suffered so much sad loss, but I became afraid to trust, I have had some unfortunate experiences with men after loss; but you give me hope and courage. What I want to say though is: I am so happy for you. And it's so great to know, there really are some special, kind and loving men out there. Thank you all. P. S. I don't know how to use this thing, so I had to choose "anonymous" because I couldn't figure out what to put to get this published. But my name is Cheryl and I'll get it together eventually...I hope!

Anonymous said...

Noone should be defining her happiness but HER. I love her products and I love her blog and a reminder that it's HER blog; if you don't like what she's saying or doing, don't read it. Pretty simple solution. TERESA: Don't change a thing - please keep writing the way you write and don't let other peoples negative judgments influence you.

Philippa said...

Teresa honey, I am SO SO SO happy for you. You truly are SUCH a special woman and I am beyond thrilled that you have found someone you are in love with and who is in love with you. The past two years have been so emotional and now you have the chance for happiness again. How many of us have two great loves in our lifetimes.. you are SO very blessed and I love you and your gorgeous family very dearly. This is YOUR journey.. no-one else's so if anyone is negative about this.. they quite simply are ignorant and not nice people. Much love xxxx many smiles.... oodles of hugs from NZ!!

Philippa said...

p.s. Oh Crikey I've just read some of the comments that have been posted here.. Teresa honey, ignore the nasty comments.. no-one has the right to judge what you do. As my mother taught me - to all of you who are writing nasty comments - ''If you don't have anything nice to say, DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL!!!''.. Much love and huge supportive hugs Teresa... xxxxx

Faye's Crafti Corner said...

You inspire me daily with your posts and how you live your life. I know that God has many great things in your future and you truly deserve them all. Don't let others dull your shine - you really do bring much light and hope into the lives of those who follow you and your precious family. Great things for you today and always because you know what God knows what He is doing and as long as you focus on Him then things will be great. There will be trials but there is victory in Him Congrats on all your life blessings.

Anonymous said...

Delete away; it's being said all over the internet. Of course her unsuspecting sheep will deny, deny. It's actually so pitiful that I ALMOST feel sorry for her. Can't commit to it because she flaunts herself and deserves the truth. She's so weak she needs a man all the time, even when one of her true loves was dying. Smh

Bored Soccer Moms said...

Oh Stephanie, Stephanie, Stepahnie.....

1) Do YOU personally know Teresa? You don't know anymore than anyone else. Good or bad.

2) Since I don't want people critizing my life, I don't have a PUBLIC blog. If you put it out there, some one is going to have an opinion! Funny how that works.

3) I am confused ...... are you saying only the groupies are allowed to have an opinion? Really?

3+) Mothers have nothing to so with this. Leave the mothers out.

Love how you are hiding behind the ANONYMOUS FACTOR! GET A LIFE! GROW UP!

Yvonne said...

ANONYMOUS>>>>you have NO IDEA what you are talking about...YOU ARE MAKING JUDGEMENTS and statements that are untrue. HOPEFULLY YOU will NEVER have to walk A MILE in her shoes. STOP HATING and being petty and small minded...get over yourself. It's so easy to sit and be mean and hateful behind "anonymous"....DO NOT JUDGE YOUR FELLOW MAN....it is written in the bible...also TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WOULD WANT TO BE TREATED...just saying...think about that before you spout hate.

Yvonne said...

If you don't have something nice to say....just keep you comments to yourself...if you would be DEVASTATED that a LOVED one found LOVE and HAPPINESS again after such a horrific time...well I feel sorry for your LOVED ONES...selfish much?

Anonymous said...

Two people liking diet coke and getting engaged 5 minutes into a relationship isn't love sweetie! If you check my comments there was nothing nasty written just the truth. Get a grip people!

Yvonne said...

Teresa...
1. Your life is your life. You have to follow your path regardless of what others think. I am so proud of you for being brave enough to do this. You have been and are a tremendous light in this world!
2. Family and love...that is what it's all about. I NEVER had a doubt that you find it again. How could you not? It is what GOD wants for everyone of us!
3. Don't let what people say bother you please. It is so sad that some people think that by lashing out at someone it makes them important...totally opposite...I feel sorry for these people...yes, they are annoying, but sadly they are so miserable and sad in their own lives that they have nothing better to do then spew hate. That is the Devil at work.
4. Just know that there are a lot of us out here who respect you, are happy for you and want nothing more for any of our fellow man then to be happy and live lives that are fullfilling. There is NO TIME LIMIT on grief...contrary to what some have said...there is no TIME LIMIT on when you might find love again. The fact of the matter is that you are lucky enough to find it again...grab it, cherish it, honor it...it is a gift. It is a GIFT FROM GOD. He is the one who send love into our lives. He doesn't want any of his children to live unhappy and sad. We are here to live our own journeys and we have to do it to the best of our ability. Good things happen to good people. and I KNOW you are a good person...I know you. I love you and I will always be your friend! Hugs. Congratulations to you and Brian. You will merge your families and be a strong front...because...of the LOVE you have for each other!

Anonymous said...

I think the comment really hit it on the head. If Ty was the love of her life why wasn't she there in his final weeks? And stop with the religious bullshit as it's getting pretty tiring. Seems like there is definitely more to this story. What an embarrassment for her children...

Anonymous said...

oh yes, it was god who taught her to be selfish and think about herself rather than look after her dying husband even though the wedding vows stated in sickness and in health and til death do us part. Maybe she should leave those bits out this time?

9:44, they only see what they want to see. It's pathetic.

Anonymous said...

This has got to be the dumbest people on the earth who have never lost a spouse. When a husband dies, does he stop working to support the family and take care of the his wife? No one would expect the husband to do this. Why is it different expectations for a woman? She was the only one working. Who supported the family financially during this time? Who is doing so now? Your lack of common sense is profound. Read the blog posts and you will see that she was balancing both her company (making money to provide for her family) and take care of her husband. I want you and Brian to know that I think Tyler helped bring you two together. 9:44PM you are truly sick and will someday be judged yourself. Shame on you for your judgmental ways.

J. Creations said...

Teresa, i buy your products for the quality and affordability. Your life is only to be lived by yours alone. Additionally, All of our words and actions should be judged by God alone. So beware to those who judge so quickly and harshly, because God will judge you even more so. I personally would not take that risk on the future of my soul. Take heed!

Stephanie said...

Oh Bored....Sweetie....It will be OK....

As a matter of fact....I do PERSONALLY know Teresa. So, maybe...just maybe I might know something...I'm pretty sure it wasn't you, a "friend" of yours or even someone you "know" who was on the phone with her at 2 am while she was sitting in the closet crying...I say pretty sure because I don't remember you taking part in those conversations...maybe you did but, if you did you were REALLY quiet. I also am pretty sure that you weren't there when she got the call saying the Dr.'s
were out of options...I say pretty sure because I don't remember you being in MY car...maybe you were but again you were awfully quiet if you were. So, maybe...just maybe I might know something...just sayin'.

She does have a PUBLIC blog...and she does "put it out there" and EVERYONE is entitled to their own opinion...but, you aren't here for that are you...no, you want to spew negativity and to partake in drama...funny how sad that is.

Mothers have nothing to do with this....Most of us were raised by Mothers...Most Mothers teach their children manners...Most Mothers when raising children teach said children what is called "The Golden Rule"...in case you may have never heard it, it is...."If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all"....and...well...you don't seem to have anything nice to say....

Being nasty and only wanting to start drama isn't attractive...it is pretty apparent that is what you are here for...please go away...there are many places where you can be mean...this is not one of those places.

SharonCallisCrafts said...

Some people are fortunate to find love once in their life, to find it twice is truly a miracle and a blessing. Live a life of love and understanding and this will attract more love into your life. Pray for the ones with hard hearts, they need it the most as their need to be hurtful is a cry for help. Congratulations Teresa and Brian xxx

Yvonne said...

wow...I feel so sorry for you. I hope you will one day find something in your sad little life that will make you happy. I would hate to be as miserable as you. GOD teaches LOVE...not selfishness...What you spit out comes back so be careful with your words.

Yvonne said...

How do you know it's not love? My Grandparents fell in love instantly...as soon as their eyes connected. They were married FOUR weeks later and married for 49 years until he passed...YOU cannot say WHO and WHEN LOVE strikes...please...be more kind.

You posted on IG after his death that you and Tyler were sealed for eternity as husband and wife. I am curious how that works now that you are to be re-married?

KAT said...

My heart is heavy as I've read the negative comments from people. Everyone's life is their own journey and should be lived as they feel is right for them. Who are we to judge others?

Teresa - be happy! Enjoy your family, your new grand babies and your new love! If I passed I would want my husband to be happy and to find someone new to love. I would not want him to live in profound grief for the rest of his life only with memories of me. Love and be proud of it!

Karen H. said...

Your grandson is a delight. I followed you a far and always admired your crazy career and you shared your joys and sadness to the world. While im happy that you found somebody I can only remember when my step father had passed and I wasn't ready for my mother to date another person. I know its selfish of me. For you i gues as the song goes the heart wants what the heart wants. Its been over 20 years since he has been gone and still nobody compares she did remarry 4 years ago. So I kind of understand where some of the mean comments are coming from but since they or me are not your family those comments needed to be kept to the poster selve.

Hey beautiful friend /Canon lady
Life is like a camera focus on what’s important capture the good times develop from the negatives and if things don’t work out, just take another shot."
Wishing you happiness, good health & LOVE. You are fortunate to have such awesome support .

Sarah Ackerman said...

Hey T - Thrilled for you and all the blessings in your life right now. I want nothing more than for you to be happy. I feel like both of us have "found" ourselves and are doing the things we were meant to do. I wish you all the best! XOXO

PS - For all you "cowards" out there who are posting insults, negative remarks, etc... LOOK IN THE MIRROR. Get your own house right & clean before you cast stones. As NONE of us on this planet are perfect, I think we all need to be a little more humble and celebrate others' success. When you have a problem there are three choices in front of you: complain about it, accept it, or do something to solve it. COMPLAINING does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING but spread negativity in the world - and no one wants or needs it. While your post is anonymous, and we may not know who you are, your HEART knows you did it and you've just stained your self-image a little. Pretty soon you will be covered in tar. Humble yourself, ask for forgiveness, and find joy - be it through family, friends, a guinea pig, whatever...but I assure you NO JOY WILL EVER COME FROM THROWING STONES AT SOMEONE ON THE INTERNET. Quit being bullies! I'm a 5th grade teacher and children don't treat one another so evil. Geesh. Rant over.

I personally know Teresa. I sat with her dying husband when she was off "having lunch with a. Friend" aka Brian. She is weak and needs a man in her life. She may think her children are happy BUT some even call me and express their anger. FUCKING MORMANS AKA MORONS! God forbid gays marry but open your vag right after your husband dies, yes that's God Words. Stupid stupid WEAK TERESA

I can't imagine the journey you have traveled but I admire that through everything you have tried to stay positive and true to yourself and the love you have for your family is a wonderful thing. Enjoy this time - you have earned it!!

Congratulations and continues blessing. Don't pay attention to nay sayers and judgers. You deserve to be happy.

Well obviously your mother did not go a good job. I don't see one nice thing in your comment either. Or does that only apply when it's convenient? Apparently you are into drama. Otherwise, what would be the point of you coming back in the middle of the night, to a blog post that you had already read and commented on? Are you the night shift? Bye, bye SWEETIE.

Bye bye to you .....SWEETIE

Wow CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement and forthcoming marriage to Brian. I loved seeing all your recent family photos and of little Cooper. x

Teresa there are many blogs that do not allow for comments. I would suggest you switch yours to not allow them either. You are a successful businesswoman, a mother and grandmother and soon to be wife again you don't need the approval of others or the hate filled comments either.

Congratulations to you. Thank you for sharing your happy news with us. I took a class from you at the Let's Create Expo in Utah a couple of months ago... and your words changed me for the better. Your life is an inspiration. I appreciate your positive words and outlook on life. You are gold. :) Happy new grandbabies, happy new home, and happy marriage to you and your new love!

Congrats on all of your blessings. Wishing you great health and happiness.

When you paste a sad story to sell products and live your life on instagram, you reap what you sow. It is tacky to post all over.

The third marriage is a charm I heard.....I love so called christians acting so christian like. My mormon grandmother never remarried. She lived an additional 30 years after her spouse died. She believed in being sealed. So sad for your sons.

Emma Sacchetti said...

I've tried to remain quiet but that comment is so completely rediculous and disgusting that I had to post. How dare you assume you know what is in someone's heart?? Not only does Teresa have 2 kids under the age of 18 that needed financial support she also has employees relying that her company being a success so they can feed their families. You would have to be hiding under a rock or possibly you hang out on the scrapbook burn site where people clearly need love and a good dose of Prozac not to know the torment this woman has gone through. I took a class from Teresa in Virginia while Ty was sick and actually had a discussion with her about this subject. She flew in at the very last minute and left as soon as she could. But she came because she had obligated herself. She cried several times during the class was open and honest. What Teresa Collins does with her life is none of my business OR YOURS. I am a consumer who really just wants to be able to buy a great product (I WANT PROJECT PINK!!) and a fan of her style. The fact that she chooses to allow us to have a glimpse into her life is a bonus. Why don't you use all the extra energy it takes to be so vile and volunteer at a soup kitchen or spend some time with your families

Well said Emma!!!!!

Sheri Landon said...

I am so happy for you and your family. Reading your posts for the last year have been inspirational for me and have helped me through my own hard times. I got to get my pic with you at scrapbook usa and you were so gracious about it. I love your products!

J. Creations said...

I will pray more for your soul now that your hatred spills all over the internet.

Linda Schaaf said...

WOW, so sad, no wonder the world is so messed up. I don't know Teresa, her family or Brian and I wasn't there when Ty was dying so I can't say what happened nor do I think it is any of my business. I come to this blog because I am a scrapbooker and Teresa designs scrapbook products that I love and want. I enjoy the bonus of reading about her family. I feel all the emotions as she tells HER(NOT YOURS OR MINE) life story. I am happy for her when something wonderful happens in her life and I cried and felt very sad for her when she was loosing/lost her husband because I'm HUMAN and I CARE. I would ask the people who are so negative WHY? Why are you so invested in what Teresa does or doesn't do? Why is it so important to you and your life? Life is a learning experience, it doesn't come with a manual, we are all trying our best. Why tear each other down, why not build each other up, just imagine that world. I understand that everyone has an opinion and a right to it, so in my opinion I think you can get your point of view across without being mean or nasty. I don't think you have to attack a persons character or beliefs to do it. So with that being said congratulations Teresa on the birth of your grandson, I am happy that he is doing so well, he looks adorable. I look forward to seeing pictures of the twins when they are born. Congratulations to you and Brian on your engagement, I am very happy for the both of you. Much love and hugs to you and your family!

Congratulations Teresa! I am so happy that you've found love again, God works in mysterious ways. I cannot wait to see pictures of your wedding, I'm sure you will look fabulous! Your grandson is adorable!

Dear Anonymous...You are hilarious. You are a chicken shit coward with no moral compass to begin with. You are nasty, vile, and just pure poison. You are a COWARD. It's about time that people stood up to the bullies like yourself who just like to hurt, cause pain, and lie all the time. You are a poor voice and example for anyone you write or speak to or about.

Gigi said...

Stephanie...YOU GOT THIS! LOL The Anonymous poster is just a cowardly poor excuse for a being.

She never owns up to her own postings, instead trys to put them back on you or TC. She is sad, poor, mean little girl who just won't ever grow up. Sadly the poor dear feels better about herself when she is trying to tear someone else down.

Patty B. said...

Anonymous is a coward. She is making assumptions that TC was just frivolous, and refuses to even think that it was planned, that Ty encouraged her on, and that he was well cared for. This Cowardly Anonymous person is just jealous that TC did not crumble, shatter and fall apart when things were so dark and sad. Anon is just a vile nasty jealous little mean bully.

Peggy Gia said...

Only because you and your nasty breed of sheeple are out there on one little teeny tiny ugly blog spreading the lies and the vitrol. You are a true piece of shit for even posting on her blog. Post your name and let some one have a go at your life.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, post your little tiny piece of bullcrap. I hope that they are leaving all these comments here so that they can find you.

Anonymous said...

Horrible example for your children. You are weak and self-centered; can't be 5 minutes without a man. I feel very sorry for you.

Anonymous said...

What a mixed up bunch of kids from all those marriages. I feel sorry for them. You are a disgrace.

Tona said...

Congratulations on both the new grandson and your engagement. I wish nothing but happiness for you and your family in the years to come.
I am appalled at the negative comments I have seen. Please try to ignore them. Unhappy people try to make those around them unhappy. This is your life, not theirs. Who are they to judge?

michib said...

Wishing you an amazing, wonderful wedding day for you !!!

Linda Schaaf said...

Happy wedding day Teresa and Brian! Hope it was everything you hoped it would be, can't wait to see the pictures! May you have a long and happy life together, much love and hugs to you all!

Glad people are seeing Teresa's true colors. I know her and I know she posted profiles to the LDS dating sites within days of her husbands'passing. I also know she loves this drama because it's good for business and it makes her people stroke her huge ego. She's done this before. Next step, she'll make allegations that she is being stalked and then blame a competitor. Good for business and good for her ego. Ugly person. (btw, my first post here)

Dear Anonymous (Michell is it?):
For someone who thinks so little of Teresa, you sure are spending a lot of time on her blog. Reminds me of a quote I saw on Pinterest - "If you don't like me and still watch everything I do, B#*ch you are a fan!"

Grow up - get a life - mind your own. The rest of us do not give a tiny little rat's butt what you think.

The 10:05 comment above has finally encouraged me to post. My husband died this past August and I even sent a few emails to Teresa because our journeys through this followed a similar timeline beginning with diagnosis. What I have learned on this rocky, cut glass road is that there is no way to tell someone else how to grieve, when to start, and when to stop. You simply cannot walk someone's path that way. And when you call someone names like 10:05 has done or attack with such hate and venom, you cannot make the hurt any worse. When you lose your partner, the hurt is maxed out. You only reduce yourself by such horrible and cutting comments. You cannot make the knife go any deeper, so it just makes you smaller in the eyes of others, and ultimately, yourself. You are bigger than that. In the midst of my own grief, I could never tell someone else how it will be for them. The face of grief looks many different ways. Just stop this hate. And if you can't, remember. You cannot make it worse for a widow or widower, They are already walking through the fire.

Anyone read her daughter's blog before she quickly made it private? NOT HAPPY with her mama. We already knew that.

OMG can you people hear yourselves? What a disgrace, nothing better to do than worry about what others are doing in their lives, always trying to bring others down, nothing but cyber bullies
