today’s the big day!

A little bit ago, I was reading a book in my stash called “Before You Leap” by Kermit The Frog . . . yes, I said Kermit The Frog. He had some very profound wisdom about realizing one’s dreams. Basically, to realize your dream, you have to do it one little dream at a time.

I quote:

The point is that every Big Dream is made up of Little Dreams. If you take the time to achieve each Little Dream, before you know it, your Big Dream will be within reach.

This may seem like reasonable and easy-to-follow advice, but when you want something as we all want our Big Dream, it’s very tempting to accomplish it all at once.

 

Ohhhh, that Kermit. Such wise words from such an old frog!

The journey for me this past year has been just such a process . . . I just didn’t know it at the time. When I first started my business, it was more of a “let’s test it out, see how it does.”

Okay . . . looking good.

So now let’s just jump into that BIG dream!

Yeah, right.

That’s not how it’s suppose to happen . . . unbeknownst to me at the time, anyway.

Getting here . . .  to having my very own little site . . . has been such a long process and I just don’t know why. I won’t bore you with all the details, but let’s just say, I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason.

I always have grand plans–or would that be delusions of grandeur? (There’s a fine line, I believe.)

Sometimes the excitement makes me dream bigger than I ought to. Not that that’s bad, but just like I tell my kids, take your time. Don’t rush into a purchase or a decision or immediately react to a bad situation.

Sit on it.

What you think you may want now you will see you didn’t really want or need later. This, coming from one of the world’s most impatient people. ;) But I have gotten wiser at my old *ehem* slightly mature age.

So now the time has arrived.

Yes, it’s still one Little Dream so far. One piece of my Big Dream. The website will be a work in progress, so I’m sure you’ll see little tweaks and additions as time goes on. The store is still the old store for now. So please bear with me as I take each Little Dream in stride. I would love to enjoy this journey together with all of you.

 

Soooo . . . to start off our new journey, I say we . . .

Like all week long! What do ya say?

 

And we must have friends at this party, yeah?

I do believe we have our dear sweet friend, Miss Nichol Magouirk, knocking at the door!

Won’t you come in darlin’!

Why yes, I think she will . . . and for like all the time too! I guess she would be considered more of a house guest than a one-night party girl. ;)

Yes, that’s right . . . NICHOL MAGOUIRK is in DA-HOUSE!

Nichol will be joining me here at my new ‘house’ on a regular basis!!! I can’t even do enough YAHOOOOOOS to convey my true feelings about this! She will be stopping by from time to time do that magic that she does so well! So would that be considered decorating my new ‘house’? It’s definitely eye candy for sure! ;)

WELCOME NICHOL! You know, girl, that I am ecstatic to have you here!

So how’s about a little eye candy from Miss Nichol today! Check out this dandy creation!

[Nichol is sporting shapes from Label It, Signed.Sealed.Delievered, Borderlines 2 and Say What 1. To hear all the details of this masterpiece, go check it out on Nichol’s blog HERE.]

 Looooooove it!

This girl truly has a gift for using so much on one page without it looking like it.

details.details!

And be sure to check out her blog all week long as she is featuring little ol’ me. Cannot wait to see what she’s got cookin’ over there!!!

 

I don’t know about you, but I think we need one of these this week too!

Every day there will be something different on sale for that day only, but everything that is on sale will be 30% off!

Here’s what’s on the agenda for the week. This way you can know what to plan for. :)

And last, but not least, I’ve got one of these up my sleeve too!

I am giving away THREE of these today!

To be entered to win, just leave a comment here in today’s post and I’ll draw the three winners on Wednesday!

I’m just sooooo excited to take this next step on my journey to who knows where.

I’m excited to have so many friends from all over the world be a part of it with me.

This is gonna be good! :)

Be sure to check back every day, not only for the daily sale, but there will be lots of ‘partying’ going on this week, including friends stopping by to play all week long!

So spread the word!

Yahoo! :)

    The new site looks amazing, Kerri! So exicted for you and your new adventure! Congrats and best wishes to you as you go forward! I know you will do well and I am happy that you started this business as you were the reason I bought a Silhouette subscription in the first place. Now, I no longer have a subscription and I seldom buy shapes from them any more because I buy them here. So, more kits I say! Dream big, girl!

    Beautiful layout by Nichol as always. You two go together like chocolate chip cookies and milk! Amazing!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win such a fantastic prize too. Love your kits and am keeping my fingers crossed in hopes of winning!
