Ready or not, here I come!

Welcome to my new place, Sleepless Stamper! I am blessed to be a Wife to a wonderfully supportive and helpful Husband, a Mom to two handsome boys (they take after their Dad) and among the many other hats I wear, I'm also thankful to be an Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator.  I love what I do and I love sharing this passion with others.   I'm am so excited to be started on this new journey, blogging!  I can't wait to come here to share, to inspire and hopefully to create with all of you (except maybe you'll create at a human hour <wink>).  Fellow crafters, family and friends have been encouraging me to take this plunge for awhile now, so finally … ready or not, here I come! (I don't mean whether you're ready for me or not, I mean whether I'm ready or not! …but, it's time and I'm excited that it's here!)   I hope that you'll come, stay awhile enjoy your time here and be inspired to create and then come back again.  Please bear with me along the way, while I love to create …creating of the technological kind is not yet my thing.  (this is where my wonderfully helpful and techno-savvy husband comes to my rescue….I think I already mentioned that he's cute too!).  While my hope is to share creativity,  it wouldn't be me if I didn't also share with you and my family members who live afar what is most meaningful to me, my family and moments of our everyday life!  So, hopefully in addition to being inspired to explore your creativity, you'll enjoy my stories, get a few laughs and share a little love!


Thanks for stopping in, take care and see you again soon with a creation and a class or two!

I am proud of you.  Your creativity is inspiring to many of us and it is obvious that you are passionate about what you are doing.  And the hour that which you do some of it, well, it comes honestly.  Love you.

So glad you are now blogging–I'm new to it as well, so thought I'd give it a try.
I love the time, effort, and inspiration you put into all that you do.  Because of you, I have learned many things about scrapbooking and making cards and they are loved by my family members and friends whenever I give them a cards, or  album that I have made.  Keep on keeping on, Alanna!!!

Just reading these reminds me of when my son was little, he would sit on my Mom's knee at the kitchen table. They had wallpaper with fruit, etc. and she would pretend to take some fruit from the wallpaper and he would pretend to eat it.  It was so cute and this would go on for hours.  I can still see my Mom and Michael pretending to eat all this food and then say they were full!!!  Thank you, Alanna for bringing wonderful memories to my mind and I know that the ones you are making with Ethan and Lennon, will forever be in your heart and mind, too.
