Thank You Stampin' Up

This is a note to all of you who have been following me for the last 2+ years on my blog. I have decided to leave Stampin' Up and will no longer be a demonstrator. My blog now reflects this change that has been made. While my time with Stampin' Up has been nothing but joyful and happy opportunities, I felt it is now time to grow and move on to other areas. I started this blog to share my projects with my friends.....................this remains the reason why I have this blog. So once in a while I will still have some fun projects and classes.

In the last 2+ years, I have made many friends through my blog and got the chance to meet some of you! What does the future hold? There will be posts that will be projects close to my heart: still will include Stampin Up products, some Asian and some scrapbooking about my parents and their heritage, and once in a while maybe even a card or two. Change is always good.

Many of you may not know I am a 4th generation San Francisco Chinese American. I will be taking pride in scrapping the historical timeline when my fraternal Great Grandfather came to the US in the 1860's. Some extensive research was done a couple years ago and it is time to get back to completing this very personal task. I hope you will take this journey with me.

my best to all and again, thank you!!!
Patti

Oh Patti, I love everything about your blog. I especially love the scrapbooking albums you make and I can totally understand your decision. I hope you will continue with your blog as it is always inspiring. You have brought a wealth of knowledge to the blogging community esp. Stampin'Up! demos and as part of a stampin up community you will be sadly missed but I will still be one of your avid followers because i just love your work. Best wishes in your new direction and I must say it has come as a complete shock.

your blogging friend.

I've never been able to leave a comment and would just throw my hands up in the air. Well today, I took the time to find out why, change passwords, update email account and so on because I MUST tell you how much I enjoy your work. Everything you do has such creative and whimsy touches to it. You are more than a papercrafter, you are an artist. Thank you for sharing your incredible creations with all of us. Your heritage project sounds incredible. Best of luck in ALL of your endeavors and know we will still be checking in to see what you're up to.
Stay well,
AnnMarie

I understand...personal choice is so important in the creative world. I am an ex-demonstrator who still uses much SU stuff in my work, but lots of other stuff too. I'll still be watching your Blog for wondrous projects. I'm not Asian, but love all the Asian art you do and try to CASE it whenever I can. Good luck in your new endeavors!
