Happy New Year to all of you! I hope that the beginning of your 2012 is off to a great start. I do not have a card for you today but wanted to share some exciting news. Most of you know that I am a pilot for United Airlines. I have been on leave for over three years. This is partly because United Airlines has many pilots still laid off and my schedule would be less than wonderful. It is partly because my husband is in the Air National Guard and flies long trips. The time has come for United to ask me to return to flying. As of today, I am back on the books at the company. With three years off I have lots of training to do, of course, and some of that will start on Wednesday. I will be flying the Airbus 319/320 (which I was flying when I took my leave of absence) with mostly domestic US flying (some Canadian, Mexican and Caribbean routes).
What does this mean for my stamping?? Not much really. You haven’t seen much in the way of posting over the last couple of weeks. Some of that is the typical holiday schedule with little time to post. Much of it though is that I have been getting ahead. I will continue my design team work with both SUO Challenges and Freshly Made Sketches. I will continue to be a Stampin’ Up demonstrator as well. I love the products from Stampin’ Up and my stamping customers are so supportive of my non-stamping work. I have a one-month training period starting on Jan. 17th that will be academically intensive so you can expect to see nothing other than design team work during that time. I hope to “sneak” in something here and there but it is hard to predict when.
Thanks for all the support you give me in my creative efforts. I find that my stamping and the people in this crafting community bring such joy to my life. I look forward to continuing these “adventures in stamping” with you.
Oh, I almost forgot…I also got a brand new computer for Christmas…a MacBook Pro!! I have always been a Windows user so my learning curve is steep. Bear with me as I learn how to edit photos with my new toy! Happy and safe new year to all of you! I’m stamping today so with any luck, I’ll have a card to show you with some of Stampin’ Up’s latest products tomorrow!
