Waking Up Panicked

Hi there blog friends, I want to thank you for coming out yesterday and adding your kind thoughts and best wishes to my kit kick off.  

I have a little admission to make – I’m plum out exhausted!!   Have you ever had this happen to you — you’re a little bit tired, and you move your work to the sofa then before you know it you get a little bit comfy then before you know it you’re laying down?  Although you don’t intend to sleep, you sleep and you sleep very well.  Then when you wake up, you have no idea what day it is, what time it is and when you look outside it’s daylight.  And, you panic – you don’t know how long you were out and you’re stuck in a state of total confusion.  It takes a minute to figure out exactly where you are, lol!  Well, that’s what happened to me today.  I fully intended to have something to show today, but I woke up at 7:30am.  

Well no worries, because although I don’t have anything to show – all the ladies on the JustRite Design Team put their creative muse to work, making different things out the die templates and stamp set included in the September Kit.  I’ll warn you in advance – many of them have used those items in a delightfully unexpected way, and they showcase such wonderful ideas beyond the standard use I demonstrated.  Take a peek if you get a moment in your day:

    Hi Becca,
    Isn’t that the most discombobulating (hmmm sp?) lol! It is so weird to wake up and not know where you are or what time of day it is … but I have found that that kind of experience usually happens after the most luscious sleep! It alas doesn’t happen often enough but oh yum when it does! (smile).

    I rec’d your post yesterday about your new adventure and I am so stinkin’ proud of you! You go girl… I know that’s a bit out of date but I still love the phrase! I hope to be able to subscribe … it is such a great idea. I have thought to myself often, “self, wouldn’t it be fabulous is someone packaged dies and stamps into a monthly kit format” and voila… you heard me! (smile)

    OK, that’s enough babling on my part. I truly wish you all of the best in the whole wide world my friend!

    Giant hugs,
    Beth PReplyCancel

    What are the small dies used for? I am very interested in your kit but a little puzzled about the dies.ReplyCancel

  • Gretchen WilsonAugust 16, 2012 - 10:03 am

    Becca, I am so happy for you. You have certainly have place your mark in the creative field. New beautiful stamps to go with the previous release and now a die to go with. You truly are AMAZING. Best of luck in your new adventure. I have signed up for the GOLD. The only way I can get a gold medal. lol
    Hugs and God Bless,

    Hi Becca
    WOW I just looked at all of the wonderful projects that the DT put together.They are great! I knew I loved the set you intro’d yesterday and now I have so many great ideas I just can’t wait to get started. I am very excited for you and am looking forward to receiving your kits each month. And I am looking forward to more of your creativity and what you have in store for us.Thanks BeccaReplyCancel

  • Becky GreenAugust 16, 2012 - 10:05 am

    The Ladies did a FABULOUS JOB with your kit Becca!!!!!!!!!!!! BEAUTIFUL WORK!!!!!!! (Wish I could be on your design team!) LOL I have the same question as Betty–What are the little pieces? I think one is a tab?
    Thanks for showing us! (Sometimes, we just need that little nap! :) )ReplyCancel

  • Ann RobbinsAugust 16, 2012 - 10:13 am

    You are just totally burned out from keeping your secret from us for 3 days!!! LOL Just Gods way of telling you to slow down and smell the roses. You obviously were mentally fatigued. I have enjoyed doing the little blog hop but absolutely have to tell you that NONE compare to your work. You just don’t know how much you inspire people. GOD gave you so much talent and I just want to say that I am so glad I found your blog. I hope I can afford to get a membership but for right now it just isn’t possible. Keep showing us your wonderful work.

  • EffieAugust 16, 2012 - 10:13 am

    Sounds like the sleep of a job well done! Be well and God Bless. BTW looked at the DT cards MAGNIFICENT,ReplyCancel

  • Pattie JnsAugust 16, 2012 - 10:22 am

    Your sleep was needed for good health. don’t feel guilty, It is healing. You have been so busy, your body needed a rest. We want you healthy and round for a long time. Take time for rest, everything has a time line, and rest is one of them….God Bless…(remember even our Lord took time to rest)Love yaReplyCancel

  • liz sAugust 16, 2012 - 10:28 am

    Wow! Totally understand! Sunday all day I thought it was Monday. It wad 9. PMT before I even understood it was actually Sunday night due to rvedly shows. Now that was scary…ReplyCancel

  • Rhea ThompsonAugust 16, 2012 - 10:29 am


    Sounds like the Lord was giving you rest after a job WELL DONE! Sometimes our adrenalin keeps us going through hectic times and then once we get a chance to breathe again, we crash! You were due a rest and I pray that you will not be hard on yourself.

    All of us (your fans) love you and praise God for bringing you into our lives. Our lives have been blessed!


  • liz sAugust 16, 2012 - 10:30 am

    Due to tv shows. My apologies. My home internet is down n I’m using my cellphone. Glad u got rested up!ReplyCancel

  • ColleenB.August 16, 2012 - 10:37 am

    Becca, sounds like you where in some much needed rest.
    Have been through that same experience; totally disoriented, more then once.

  • Deanne @ Three TreesAugust 16, 2012 - 10:39 am

    At least you tried to create – I have had no mojo this week and have been just plane lazy LOL.

  • Cheryl RotnemAugust 16, 2012 - 10:42 am

    OMG, I haven’t done that in years! I remember tho a time when I was in Beauty School, it happened to me, and thought it was the next day, but it wasn’t it is a strange feeling for sure.ReplyCancel

  • GlendaAugust 16, 2012 - 10:44 am

    Bless your sweet heart! You need to give your body a little rest. We will be patient and wait while you doze a little. Take a few moments and breathe!ReplyCancel

  • lois skiathitisAugust 16, 2012 - 10:58 am

    Becca, that has never happened to me unless I was heavily medicated from the doctor or I was sick. From helping your daughter and this fantastic adventure you are doing no wonder you were exhausted and I bet it’s been the best sleep you have had in a while. TFS!!! the links with us. As always Becca, TFS!!! :-DReplyCancel

  • lois skiathitisAugust 16, 2012 - 11:05 am

    Becca, Please excuse the second post today but I had to tell you the things the DT members did are just amazing. I wanted to say IMHO you are truly blessed and truly loved and rightly so. Best wishes to you Becca from my heart to yours. As always Becca, TFS!!! :-DReplyCancel

  • Gloria WestermanAugust 16, 2012 - 11:08 am

    Ok I do that too!!!! It seems I get to watching (Criminal Minds) TV and before I know it, I’m easing down on the couch and then when my glasses come off…I’m down….and it’s the best sleep ever….but I do wake up and the first thing I do is see what time it is…..and hoping I haven’t sleep all afternoon….we all need the extra sleep sometimes….so don’t worry about us….just sit back and relax…..
    PS I wish I could get your program….which is the best one around….but sense I don’t have a job and I have to relied on my DH….it’s just not in the budget…I wish it was…ReplyCancel

  • Marilyn ClarkAugust 16, 2012 - 11:10 am

    Thanks so much for responding to my post of yesterday. I am gold member #179.
    The good Lord has a way of slowing us down when we try to keep on going and hit that wall of exhaustion. I have been there more than once, so I understand your exhaustion.
    I looked at the Design Team and am excited and happy for you.
    Please get some rest. God bless.ReplyCancel

  • DeniceAugust 16, 2012 - 11:12 am

    Whew, I thought I was the only one who did that. Waking up with not a clue what day it is , time it is , or where you are. Hearing you did it too, well , I feel better now. : ) I am glad you slept, sometimes when we over do it our bodies just say, “okay, enough, sleep whether you like it or not” Ha-Ha….. Hope it helped you . God bless my cyber friend…. God bless….. DeniceReplyCancel

  • yogiAugust 16, 2012 - 11:41 am

    lots of creative ideas using your new kit. Wishing you much success in your new adventure. Have a great dayReplyCancel

  • BetsyAugust 16, 2012 - 11:59 am

    Your body knows when it needs to rest ~ just follow its lead!! Everyone deserves to get a good rest! That happens to me sometimes ~ either I fall asleep and wake up minutes later thinking I’ve been asleep for hours, or just the opposite happens and I fall asleep for hours and wake up thinking I’ve just taken a little nap! Sure makes you feel out of sorts for a bit!
    I’m so excited to get my first kit ~ I signed on for the gold club ’cause I don’t want to miss out on getting any of them!
    Have a wonderful day, Becca! Hugs!ReplyCancel

  • MaryannAugust 16, 2012 - 12:26 pm

    Don´t feel bad hun, we all get to the point some times, where we just need that rest, and you sure did after a long time with sooo much going on. I think, the body has it´s own way to make us listen, when we try to ignore it too long. So don´t panic, just listen to your body and do as it ask you to do and relax, we´ll all still be around here, when you´re back with new strenght again hun.
    Have a wonderful day and lots of fun in your new playgrpound here, but don´t overdo it hun.ReplyCancel

  • SianAugust 16, 2012 - 1:07 pm

    Oh Becca, you obviously needed a good rest! I hope you feel rested :)

    I hate that feeling of panic when you wake up and have no idea where you are, what time it is or even what day or year it is!

    I look forward to seeing your newest creation tomorrow :)ReplyCancel

  • Barbara JayAugust 16, 2012 - 1:12 pm

    OMG I love the story of your unintended nap !! Yup I have done that too and feel like a fool as I am trying to figure out how long I slept . I am so-o-oo- happy to read that I am not the only one who has done this!ReplyCancel

  • Monica LoreAugust 16, 2012 - 1:16 pm

    Oh Becca!
    You and Just Rite and Spellbinders! Heavens! Am I ever tempted!
    I will be counting my pennies to see if I can make this work…..ReplyCancel

  • Vicky SchmidtAugust 16, 2012 - 2:20 pm

    Becca, You must have need that nap.So that is ok. You have shown us many wonderful projects. Loveyour work & you.

  • Edna BurgessAugust 16, 2012 - 2:44 pm

    That’s ok, you have have needed the extra rest. Has happened to all of us. EdnaReplyCancel

  • Lynn MercurioAugust 16, 2012 - 2:47 pm

    You’re so funny Becca. Yes – I have woken up after a nap and felt like I was in the Twilight Zone (not the Vampy kind either…lol). Sounds like your body got the rest it so desperately needed. In the words of Martha Stewart, “It’s a good thing”.ReplyCancel

  • OkienurseAugust 16, 2012 - 3:24 pm

    Becca hang in there and don’t get too panicked! Even good changes like what you are bringing about will cause stress in your life and it takes time to adjust! I love the kit of the month idea. I can’t afford it right now but as soon as possible I plan on joining. Great value for all that you get! Love your work. You are awesome!!ReplyCancel

  • Charlene LeBelAugust 16, 2012 - 4:35 pm

    I like the Kits, but, I’m afraid they are a little too expensive for me. I’m a senior citizen and I have to watch my money. I was surprised at the shipping cost too. I wish I was a little younger and still working and then maybe I could afford to order.
    Best of Luck to you in all you do. God Bless You.ReplyCancel

  • Kathy SAugust 16, 2012 - 4:44 pm

    This just proves your as human as the rest of us and when you push yourself too much then you flake. can’t wait to check out the Justrite teams projectsReplyCancel

  • kathy/NorthCarolinaAugust 16, 2012 - 6:42 pm

    I haven’t slept that deeply in a long, long time! So glad you were able to get some rest!ReplyCancel

  • Mary Cardini-AndersonAugust 16, 2012 - 8:46 pm

    I have Fallen asleep while doing a project many times. I guess it’s a normal thing to do. :) Congratualtions on your new die and stamp set. Both are beautiful.


  • LESLEY CALABRIA-BROWNAugust 17, 2012 - 4:29 am

    You obviously need the rest, Becca. And you definitely deserve it! Kick back, girlfriend…have a cup of tea, take a deep breath and r-e-l-a-x! Give yourself a little TLC. Thanks for all you do!ReplyCancel

    Oops sorry – should have added that its understandable that you need some sleep and rest to continue your wonderful work

  • Becca WhithamAugust 17, 2012 - 9:28 am

    Congratulations on your new venture, Becca. Although I didn’t comment on earlier posts, my guess was that you were creating custom dies for Spellbinders. Boy…did you prove me right in a BIG way. I went to the website to see about ordering and was both encouraged and bummed that the individual kits have already sold out. I hope that means the quantity of “non-member” kits will be increased for those of us who can’t commit to a monthly charge at this point.

    Once again, congratulations. God has blessed you with a talent for beauty. I can see Him smiling at how you are using it from my laptop screen!!

    Another congrats on your latest accomplishment, Becca! I always admire your beautiful work and look forward to every post. I have your bow maker and just love the way my bows turn out with it! I posted about it on my blog today. The link is above if you want to peek in. Smile. You are blessed with so much talent and it seems as we are old friends, even though we have never met! Best wishes in all your endeavors!

  • PennyAugust 18, 2012 - 10:10 pm

    Becca, I have joined the gold club and am very excited. Your creativity does inspire to spend more time doing what I love when I am not being a nurse. I was a little shocked at the shipping and that there wasn’t a choice for a lower shipping price. If ever there is an option, let us know, which I know you will. Thank you for taking time to create for the rest of us.ReplyCancel

  • Stacy O'DellAugust 19, 2012 - 11:11 am

    Oh My Goodness! I woke up and opened email to a big surprise today! I have been WAY behind in following my favorite blogs (yours is on top of the list) but I received an email from ScrapMart announcing your Kit Club-Congratulations! I am SO happy for you, and for us of course!!! How exciting is this ( and alot of hard work I’m sure), but it will be much appreciated. I love how everything is included in the kit, including full color directions. As soon as it fits into my budget, I will be signing up for sure! (think my husband would mind skipping groceries for a week, so I can get Sept’s kit–only joking of course!!). I am sure it is priced very well for the value and I look forward to participating when I can. The best of luck to you, and I just know you will be a great success! You are so talented and creative, in such a special way, that brings out the bit of creativness we need to get involved in projects like these. Now the quality supplies will be availabe for everyone to have delivered to them–how great is that? Congrats again!!! -StacyReplyCancel
