I’ve spent the last few months designing a life to love after the move, and have been studying Steve Jobs and Lessons Learned in his too short life.
Moving for the second time in my tenure as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator has again refined what I love about the products I am spoiled by every day. I know there are plenty of my readers who can poo-poo some of what I gush about these products because I am an Independent Demonstrator for the company, but bottom line is that I am not in the least interested in shopping elsewhere. Where else am I going to find these colors all coordinated for my projects?
To answer many of your questions, here’s what I’m going to do to build my business after this move: I’m not. I’m going to make quality cards and pretty packaging all week long and give it away every day everywhere I go. The world needs more appreciation and praise and little gifts, and I like giving cheer, thanks, and do it generously. I am living my bonus years leaving a legacy of kindness and the coincidence today is that I saw something Steve Jobs said:
Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful…that’s what matters to me.
I plan on spending many more hours in the Greenhouse* making cards and pretty packaging than I will spend teaching. I love teaching, but I can do it a lot more easily here on the blog than in the classroom, so be prepared for inspiration, instruction, and measurements so you can bless others, too.
*Greenhouse is what I am calling the new Celia’s Paper Garden studio. Seemed appropriate with all that glass, right?

- There’s a Hospice in Victoria that has asked for blank cards.
- My customers will be getting monthly cards.
- I send out cards during my journaling time.
- Thank you cards, too!
- I participate in a small monthly swap.
My new mail delivery person needs to get used to an outgoing load, so I’ll be baking and packaging and if you’d like I can share a recipe or two here from my family heirloom recipes?
