What Defines Us

Hello there blog friends!  Whoosh!  That’s the sound of the month rushing by and I feel like we just turned the corner – it’s already mid-November and Thanksgiving is a stones throw away.  If you are like me, I wake up about a week or two before Christmas and the flurry of activity starts.  I wouldn’t trade it for anything – I love this time of the year!  Speaking of mid-November – it’s time to release a new kit!!  This is our 4th Kit and it begins shipping on December 1st.  No worries if you are not a member – if you want to try just one kit to see if you like it.  I will say these kits are a bit different from what I’ve seen elsewhere – it’s not just a collection of things shipped to you for you to figure out how to use.  Each item in the kit belongs to a project that you are led through making – this kit has 5 made items.  When you are done, you still have the stamps, die templates and surplus supplies – you can craft to your hearts desire.  There are step – by – step pictured instructions  to lead you through each project and of course, you are always welcome to change it up and make it your own.  It works especially well for someone who doesn’t have time to design and it’s a fabulous opportunity to try products you might not have on hand.

I also wanted to let you know that I have to have some surgery at the end of November.  You may still see me post but for those of you who are members in the kit club – we will take a one month break to let me recuperate.  I’m not good (at all) with stuff like this so I’d ask you to keep me in your prayers.  I’m a pretty tough gal, but need to take care of my health, then get back to the crafting I love!  The next kit reveal will be on January 15, shipping on February 1st.   Dies and stamps are already designed  for this kit and I promise you, it will be worth waiting for.  In the mean time, here’s a little more what in this month’s kit. :-)

Don’t forget, if you have any questions about the kit you can call Customer Service at 918-453-9111 or email them directly HERE.

Hugs to you, thanks for stopping by today!!  I hope to be back soon with a new project :-)

    I am once again looking forward to my next kit! I have one card to finish and I will be caught up! So far, every project has turned out beautifully and some of them have made me stretch and get out of my comfort zone. Thank you for that. You will be in my prayers for a safe and successful surgery. Take all the time you need for your recovery. Your good health is the most important thing. God bless you and keep you in His loving arms.ReplyCancel

    Very beautiful kit this month, Becca. Love it. Surgery is always a worry, I just had some myself and have bounced right back. Another one on the 28th. As I am recuperating, I will keep you in my prayers. God is Good and know you have faith. Just do as your body tells you. Good luck, my friend.

  • Lorrayne Ingram/ caitiumomNovember 15, 2012 - 7:03 am

    I will be praying for God to strengthen you for surgery, to give you perfect peace that He is in control of the surgery and doctors, and staff and that He will help you to recover and rebuild your strength.
    I know where my help comes from, it comes from the LORD!ReplyCancel

    Gorgeous kit! Can’t wait for it to come in the mail. I will be praying for you, for the doctors and for your graceful recovery! Having a month off of kits might just help me get started on the first one! They are so beautiful but I just haven’t had a chance to put anything together yet. I hope that your recovery time is a welcome break and a time for you to take care of yourself.

  • Carol PinkeyNovember 15, 2012 - 10:51 am

  • Francie in MontrealNovember 15, 2012 - 11:26 am

    Becca, my thoughts and best, warmest wishes are going your way for a successful surgery and easy recovery. Surgery is always scary, but with your faith, family and friends to support you I have no doubt you’ll be up and around sooner than you think. God bless and take care of you.

    Love your kits. They are fabulous. Even a doufuss (sp?), like myself can create beautiful Becca-like projects.

    So be a good patient. Don’t overdo it when you start to feel better, and follow your doctor’s orders. Right? Right!ReplyCancel

  • eveleneNovember 15, 2012 - 11:27 am

    Fabulous kit that any paper crafter would love to have. This ensemble as usual is so gorgous and stunning.

Surely, goodness and mercy will follow you all the days of your life because you always delight in the Lord. Take care.ReplyCancel

  • Frances EricksonNovember 15, 2012 - 11:29 am

    Becca, prayers are being sent your way. In the name of Jesus, I pray that your surgery is successful and you come out of it with no pain and miraculous healing. We will miss you and be assured you have many “sisters” praying for you and sending you love. If you need a lift – check your messages and you will see love being sent to you…ReplyCancel
