Do more of what makes you happy! - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to March Artisan Design Team followers! I am soooo looking forward to crafting with the March Stampin' Up! Artisan Box. Love love love! Squeal!!

When I started my Artisan journey in August I blogged about it being a new love affair. I am happy to report that seven months later it is still sizzling! I can not keep my hands off of the goodies that Stampin' Up! sends. I have made so much time for "us" over these seven months including many long sleepless nights together *wink*.

But all good things must come to an end, or so I thought. I found myself worrying about the honeymoon ending in August (Typical to be worrying about the end when I should be still enjoying the romance). Like anyone I just do not want the love affair to end!

Then I received the absolute, most exciting news ... our love affair has been extended!!!  I get to stay on as an Artisan Design Team member until October! Now this is no diamond ring but who needs that when you have Stampin' supplies!!!!

I think this week I designed the perfect projects to celebrate this news!

Everyone needs to do more of what makes them happy, right?! In fact, I was at the doctor yesterday for my "check up from the neck up" and he reminded me that I need to say no, know my limitations and take time for myself. In other words, do more of what makes me happy! I should have got a doctors note for that, eh?! Sorry hubby, I can not cook dinner today. The doctor said that I need to say no and go stamp!!!

This button is Whisper White but I covered with with Washi Tape to create a custom button finish! I used sewing thread to thread the button and add the loops of thread behind.

The button, Designer Series Paper & Washi Tape are all from the Sweet Dreams suite in the Occasions Catalogue. I am obsessed with the color scheme! Basic Grey, Crisp Cantaloupe, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Sahara Sand & Whisper White. Yummy!

Hello Life ... It can mean so many things! First to my mind is it would be to welcome a baby but I think there can be a lot more to it. You could gift this card for a retirement, for someone starting a new career, a graduation, an engagement, a wedding - for every chapter we celebrate in out lives! HELLO LIFE!
