Create it Monday- Helping Me Grow!

Create it Monday


It’s Monday and that means a FRESH start to the week.  I think I am the only one in the family that loves a Monday.


Probably because I’m excited to see Russ go to work and the kids go to school which = peace and quiet in the house.  YAY for Monday!

Today, I’m sharing a new set from the Occasions catalog called Helping Me Grow. It’s totally suitable for my chat at the end of this post too.  I hope you read all the way through.


Helping Me Grow


I’m not sure what I love more, the flowers in this set or the name of this set.



Create it Monday, Helping Me Grow, Stampin' Up!


The flowers are gorgeous, but the sentiments are what really stood out for me.

There is something classy about Black and White.  You could even change this card up by coloring the flowers with ANY color because black goes with everything.  Don’t be afraid to try it.

Growth- Life Organization

Is there such a thing as life organization?

The last two weeks I have felt chaotic.  Like a tornado came into my home and my stuff is “everywhere!”

Last week I was out of town for 9 days.  I went to a gymnastics meet with Alexis in Atlanta and then 24 hours later drove from Florida to Kansas City, MO for one of the best leader retreats I’ve ever attended.  10 of the most amazing ladies I know in Stampin’ Up! gathered together to lift each other up and encourage each other in both life and business.  One word to describe it all- Empowered!


I came home energized in a way I’ve never felt.  Energized about life as a whole.  Empowered to try new things and ENJOY the entire process as I go forward.


Can you hear my WOW? WOW WOW WOW!



I could write a novel on what I walked away with personally.  It was everything from spiritual growth, personal growth, business growth…

What I learned most is to empower those around you in all of these aspects of life and you will be amazed at your own growth you will see within yourself.

Empower!  It’s my word for this year.  I pray that I can empower you daily not just on a creative level, but personal growth too as we journey on….  Believe me, it’s a journey! It’s a really GOOD journey!
