A time to give thanks!
…for the moments in life that worth celebrating with a handmade card.
…for the fun we have crafting together.
…for loved ones that inspire us to make beautiful paper crafts.
This week, as I prepare for Thanksgiving, I realize how very much I have to be thankful for. Many of you don’t know this, but I recently underwent surgery to fix an issue with my stomach. Scar tissue from a previous surgery impacted my insides and doctors said had I waited a few more days, I probably wouldn’t be with you.
What many don’t know is – 3 years ago when Flourishes began, it was because of other health problems. This company had always been a dream of mine and I didn’t want to fade from this world without giving it a try. I joined forces with two fabulous ladies ~ Sharon Doolittle & Nancy Kirk, who helped me get this company off the ground. Because of them and because of my fabulous design team, this company has exceeded my wildest dreams. I have incredible artists who continue to amaze me with their stamp concepts. I have customers who send cards with Flourishes stamps that just knock my socks off. Each one of these people stands like rays of light in my life. There are so many people who contribute to Flourishes’ success and in the process, inspire me beyond words.
Today, I thank all of you! I thank my artists. I thank my friends and I thank my fabulous design team (it’s the best in the business hands down!). I offer a very special thanks to our Friends of Flourishes blog team who offer challenges each week that continually inspire creativity. All of these ladies have let Flourishes shine in new ways and helped us reach out to more people with our beautiful images.
So stop by our team members and give them a little love this Thanksgiving. I know I will! Flourishes is a better company because of all of them!
So as you sit down to Thanksgiving and count your blessings, what will you be thankful for? All the best to you and your family on this special day!
