What an amazing day! We launch our new website! I can’t help but feel emotional… so many dreams and so many ideas… Although this will not be the full featured website; for it’s just the initial launch, it will still bring so much to the table and give our Journey Coaches the back office they need and our customers the home office they deserve. In addition we can start sharing inspiration again! It’s been hard not to share projects with you. I will now have the opportunity to share projects so you can view them and re-create them.
A huge thank you to the Journey Crew for all the hard work and dedication! You are what creates this amazing journey and I am honored to work by your side. Another special thank you goes to all our Journey Coaches, those who have patiently waited for this day to come as well as those who have joined us in the past, you all make a difference in my heart and helped shape this amazing company, THANK YOU!
A little sneak peek at what you are about to see in just a few more hours…
you will find the opportunity and be introduced to our current coaches. These group of amazingly talented ladies will help guide you on your creative journey. They are beautiful, creative and passionate crafters who are enjoying the journey and are willing to share it with you!

I have to say that within the last 18 years of my life I have been blessed with meeting many talented and creative individual. During this time I have been greeted by many amazing followers who have expressed being inspired by my work. All of theses expressions of love are heartfelt and very inspiring to me. This story however was one that brought tears to my eyes. I was so moved by the passion in this very intelligent young man that I am unsure who admired who the most.
Tyler Somers who is 9 years old (10 in July, BTW) has been viewing all my video tutorials as well as reading all my blog post. Tyler has apparently become a fan. He heard we were going to be in Wisconsin and asked his Mother Alicia Somers to bring him to the show to meet me. You see Tyler had prepared a list of questions for me, he was determined to meet me and interview me. This intelligent young man had very intense questions for me and I was so proud of him. Tyler wants to own his own stamp company when he grows up and I am just in love with his vision and dream…
After a nice and intense interview, I just had to give Tyler a hand made card. He wanted my autograph and what better way to give him one than with a hand stamped greeting.
Tyler, I pray that God blesses you on your journey and no mater what you choose to do in the future I know you will succeed. You are intelligent, talented and very inspiring to those around you. Thank you for your smile and I know I will see you again soon!
Here is Tyler with his Mom and Grandmother. What a beautiful family. Thank you all for your amazing following. I can’t wait to bring you into our Journey! Until we meet again.

I love working with this lady! Always keeps me on my toes and has everything ready for me before I even know I need it! I am very blessed to have Kim Hupke our Director of Education near me when we are doing these shows. THANK YOU Kim, I sure wish I can have you with me at all times. Truth be told I am blessed in more ways than one. Our team if one of a kind and I could not possibly do what I do with out each and everyone of them, THANK YOU!
Classes again were full and very FUN! The stampers and scrapbookers here are FANTASTIC! To all our new coaches!!!! WELCOME and see you soon!
One of the FUN things that happened today was being double booked! YIKES! I was scheduled to teach at the creativity center and just before finishing our last session, Dave from expo comes and tell me… “your class started 30min ago, and your are not there” WHAT!!!!! SO you guessed it, Kim, Rose and Richard ran half a marathon to get to the class and all the ladies were such good sports… It was certainly the joke of the class but boy did we have FUN!
As usual all good things must come to an end. Tear down begins and my crew truly gets into their work! Our superstar Kazan Clark is on the move again…
Thanks again Wisconsin, until next time.
PS Please stay tuned for tomorrow I will share a special story that truly moved me and I just have to share…

We have been in Sacramento California the past couple of days at the Original Rubber Stamp show, today is day 3! Our last day at the show but I wanted to share some FUN highlights from Set up dat and day 1!
If you have heard that I don’t travel light, I am here to tell you that it’s true… I don’t. LOL! This however was not all my luggage. Its a FUN display at the Sacramento international airport. I just had to take a picture…
Set up was smooth and fast. We have done this a few times before… This time however we had a new bloom to share and that made set up so exciting!
We hosted our first mini opportunity gathering in Sacramento and it was a hit! I am so delighted that our stampers in Sacramento LOVE our stamps, dies and new journey.
We had over 30 ladies come and learn about this unique opportunity to bloom and the response was overwhelming! THANK YOU for all that love and support.
I shared some new exclusive sneak peeks of product as well as spoke about our compensation plan any how you can bloom with us in the months and years to come.
Product showcase as always is on the top of my list. I love that creating hand made cards, scrapbooks and gifts brings us all together.
It was a GRAND day 1 and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us today. Thank you Sacramento for your warmth and excitement. Let me be the first to say WELCOME to the Journey!

Doors opened for the early birds at 9am and we where busy, busy, busy! The stampers and scrappers here in Collinsville are a hoot and I love that you all LOVED the new Journey Blooms Opportunity! We can’t help but be thrilled with this opportunity to share this creative journey but in just a few more weeks our web transitions and kick off party will take place.
Let me share some images of today…
My girl Kazan rocking the demo table as usual… You Go Ms Kazan!
Our make n’ takes as always busy and FUN!
Lynn and Rose educating on our journey and Spellbinders product!
Our Journey Blooms garden wall was a HUGE HIT! Lots of photos taken here…
Here are some step outs of the FUN Journey Hug demo and give away I was hosting! This new die matches the flower party stamp set!
As you can see we created dies that fit this set perfectly, you can now line up your die to the stamp with ease. Simply add some removable tape to secure.
Once out of your Journey Grand, carefully remove the removable tape from your die and card stock.
Remove the card stock from your die and create a gentle curl with a bone folder.
Mount your leafs and flowers with foam squares and enjoy!
All in a days work… So blessed to have the opportunity to share my journey with those who want to bloom with me, Thank you.
We are in stormy and tornado warning Collinsville IL! I have to admit that it’s the first time I have received a tornado alert. NOT FUN! Despite the crazy weather we have been working and getting ready for our guest here in Collinsville IL!
The show floor is huge with lots of vendors! Our booth looks Devine! Full of yummy and delicious product to play with.
Our retired stamps are up and available while supplies last.
David and Kazan are the pricing police!
Lynn and Rose are making sure all our stamps and blooms are in order..
So exciting! I get to demo today with our very own Journey Grand! EEKKKK!
I hope you take the time and come visit us. Its time to bloom and I can smell the delicious fragrance that our blooming garden has to offer.
