Last year, 2021, was a mix of joy and sorrow. It was full of goodness and sometimes stress. In 2021 some of you suffered losses that made my heart break and some of you are still making your way back to health. No matter our circumstances, we’re all excited to start a new year.

As we think of the potential for new beginnings, I pray we remember that Jesus is our constant. He knows our hearts, our thoughts and knows exactly what we need. It’s up to us to open our eyes to see His goodness and it’s up to us to open our hearts to grow in his Word.

We have no idea what 2022 will bring, but as card makers and crafters, we know it’s another year full of opportunities to encourage one another.

I want to apologize that I didn’t get Christmas cards sent this year. I thought I had plenty of time to finish them, but then got really sick. I’m feeling stronger and better everyday, but am still recovering. I need to follow the steps of many of you who make Christmas cards in October.

Thank you for encouraging me. You’ve blessed me by choosing me as your Stampin’ UP! demonstrator and I’m thankful for you. I have a lot of responsibilities outside of Stampin’ Up!, but being a demonstrator gives me such joy! I hope to continue blessing others throughout 2022 and I look forward to sharing the love of papercrafting with you.

Happy New Year!

Hugs, Linda


  1. Your email was better than a Christmas card, although you do make beautiful cards. Thanks for these reminders and encouragement.
