Four on the Fourth

Four years ago today was a very exciting and monumental day for me. I remember it well. Not only did that day we have lightning hit right by our house–at 5 a.m.–knocking out two televisions and a cable box, but it was the very first time I sold a kit.

Which leads me to this big event for today.

birthday4

Can you believe it’s been FOUR years already? It seems like I only started this last year.

It’s crazy!

But before we get this party started, it’s time for a bit of pause and reflection, because that’s what you do on birthdays when you get older. I don’t usually wax philosophical, but on a day like today, it’s called for, right?

I had so many questions that went through my head in the summer of 2010.
   Will this business work?
   Will people actually buy something from little ol’ me?
   Will it become a business that I hoped it can be?
   Can I really do this?

It’s a giant leap of faith to do something like this when you know that you need to help support your family and you don’t have a regular monthly paycheck coming in.

But I always go with my gut, and it was telling me:

Yes. Do this. Do it now.

I still consider myself grateful every single day that I’m able to do what I do. I have been so very fortunate to be able to work from home, particularly in today’s world. The first six year’s of marriage and the birth of three children were not that way though as I worked full-time at WordPerfect during that time. After a three year working hiatus, in 1997, I found myself in the world of scrapbooking. Who knew it would turn into what it has now–both in the industry and for myself. Having the opportunity to help provide for my family and work at home was a blessing. One that I’ve never taken for granted.

It’s not always been easy. Try having a deadline to create a Cricut cartridge, having pretty much a full-time job already creating scrapbook pages for Lisa Bearnson+QVC, and not knowing a thing about Illustrator. Talk about trial by fire! But having the opportunity was truly a serendipitous moment. Previous plans that were canceled while at CHA in Chicago in 2005 led me to dinner with old friends from Provo Craft–Desiree Tanner and Heather Lancaster. If it wasn’t for their faith in me and running into them that night, who knows where I would be.

I believe, everything happens for a reason. 

It may not be done in the best of ways or it may be done in a serendipitous way. We may not always know ‘the plan’, but there’s always a reason.

I’m happy, here and now. 

I’m thrilled that so many of you have been there to support me as friends in this crazy adventure and have been with me all these years–even before little ol’ KBS came into existence. I have made so many new friends and continue to be amazed by all of your wonderful spirits.

It’s been an amazing ride and I hope for many more years to come!

Now let’s get this party started!

But wait…first things first. Just so you know, I only do a sale like this one maybe once or twice a year. So if you wanted to stock up on kits or classes, now would be the time! Also, during these fun party weeks, the Class Extras are available for sale, so if you wanted them but didn’t need to take the class? Now’s your chance. You can find them in the store.

The sale ends Sunday.

We are going to have an exciting week full of inspiration from the KBS Creative Team! But first, I think we should start this party off with a bang! Because you know how I like to give things away….
