Well…it is the passionate week of the Stamp Simply Team! Just in case you have been living under a rock in the last week, Sharon has been celebrating her Blogaversary this week with an INSANE amount of goodies brought to you by…US…her Stamp Simply Team! We thought it would be great to be involved in her celebration and volunteered to give some stuff away! Well…today is MY turn, and I am going to get passionate about things here!


Jesus. “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: For it is the power of God unto Salvation for everyone who believes.” Romans 1:16. I am passionate about Jesus Christ and the relationship I have with Him.

My Husband. Little did I know when I walked into my college German class, I would be sitting down and having my future husband teach me. Not only once, but twice! I had him as a teacher for two semesters, and the rest is history!!

My Girls: My life, my happiness, my utmost joy and the loves of my life. Absolutely no words can describe how passionately I love them.

My Voice. God has blessed me with a gift so powerful, it encompasses the core of my being. It is a gift so intimate and yet so grand it cannot be compared with anything else in my life. It is me. It is everything that I am about. I am so grateful that I have had the chance to develop it to the point where I can musically express anything I want to, much more comfortably even than with words.

Learning. I am a forever learner. I am constantly wanting to learn more and strive more and be more so I will become better at the next thing on my list…

Teaching. My father was a music teacher. I was blessed enough to have him teach me as a child. He was a great teacher, and I learned a lot from him. I think I have touched a lot of people’s lives through teaching. As a matter of a fact, I know I have. I am so proud of my students, and hope to always learn more so I can always teach more.

Traveling. I am so excited in my life to have the opportunity to travel. A lot. This is a HUGE part of our life as a family. A life filled with learning about cultures, people, their stories. Nothing is more interesting to me than to hear people’s stories.

Stamping/Designing. This almost goes without saying on here, but I love this job, this community, this passion of stamping and designing. Who would have thought what a journey this would have been. I am always changing, deciding what brings me joy, and deciding to commit my whole self to this art has been scary and wonderful all at the same time.

Would you like some candy? How about this VERY FIRST set from Papertrey ink “Paper Tray?”
