May THANK YOU challenge WINNERS

Hello, friends!

I cannot believe we are heading into JUNE!!! WOW!

Our last challenge was all about giving thanks- one of my favorite things to do! It doesn't take much to say "thanks", to show appreciation... yet it brings such joy and love to those who receive it. A small action with a great reward.

And right now there are so many people serving on the front lines- doctors, nurses, healthcare workers, pharmacist, truck drivers, grocery workers, and MORE! Take some time to give thanks  And to be honest- I have so much to be thankful for ❤️

The THANK YOU challenge gallery is fulllllll of amazing creations! I've said it before, and I will say it again- Picking just three winners is SUPER hard! I wanted everyone to win!!! I love love love it all ❤️

CONGRATULATIONS to our winners!

Update on me and my Dad

Hello friends
You are in my Paper Smooches family, so I wanted to share an update on my family.
My Dad passed away on May 21st. I am still in shock - it happened so quickly. I took him to the hospital on Mother's day to get a chest x-ray and eleven days later he went to be with my Mom in heaven. Thankfully all of my brothers were able to make it to Arizona to say goodbye. My goodness will I miss him dearly. We were so close.

If you'd like to read a little about him - https://www.samaritanfuneralhome.com/obituaries/Edward-Baker-16/#!/Obituary

Tell your loved ones how much they mean to you...life is so precious

May ANYTHING GOES challenge WINNERS (late)

Hello, friends!

I am so very sorry for the delay in posting our winners! It completely slipped my mind! I have been busy preparing a few items for my other job as I step back and take a break. It has been a lot of work and difficult for me personally; a time of rest is much needed. Taking a break means I now have MORE time to craft! I just hope I can post on time:) LOL!

Anything Goes challenges are everyone's favorite- and it shows! We had SOOOOOOO many entries! WOW! THANKS to all who shared creations for our challenge!


CONGRATULATIONS to our winners!

checking in :)

Hi friends.
My Dad was recently diagnosed with lung cancer and was referred to Hospice, so I am trying to figure out the best way to take care of him during this difficult time. I am still filling orders but new Paper Smooches releases are still on hold.

Sending so much love to all of you and hoping you are safe and well <3
Kim

THANK YOU Audrey, Larissa, and Kathy!!!

Friends, HELLO!!!!

Savannah O'Gwynn here today! I wanted to pop on and say THANK YOU to our 2020 first term PS Challenge Design Team. Please feel free to share some love below for our team!!

If you know me... then you know that these posts are hard for me to write! Picking winners- hard! I wish everyone could win🙃 Saying goodbye to a fabulous team- SUPER hard😭 I wish we could be on the team forever!! I also wish we could all craft together in person- how fun would that be!?!?!?

The first term DT knocked my socks off with each challenge. I loved opening the emails from them with their projects- I would save them, not opening them or peeking at them until the night before the challenge so that I could be surprised by what they made. Let me tell you... it was like Christmas every time! The anticipation and surprise and then the WOWZA of seeing their projects---- AMAZING! We really do have some amazing teammates🤩

Audrey blows me away with her coloring, design, and photos! WOW! I have asked multiple times for her to teach me how to color- watercolor, Copic coloring, ANYTHING! I just want to be like her!!! Here's my favorite project from her.
Larissa literally comes up with the most amazing designs- using dies and stamps in ways and combos I never thought possible! Makes me think, "Why didn't I think of that!?!" LOVE it all! Here's my favorite project from her.
Kathy's projects are down right beautiful! Jaw dropping, which usually makes me wonder how she did that! I loved that Kathy would send me two photos each month- different angles and styles. I wanted to share both each time! LOL! Here's my favorite project from her.

AudreyLarissa, and Kathy -thank you! Thank you for your patience with me as a DT Coordinator! Thanks for sharing such amazing creations each month! THANKS for being a part of our team!!! It's an honor to have worked with you, and I hope that this isn't the end (actually I know it's not! We will be in touch! Especially since you all have to teach me how to craft just like you!!!). 

And with that... we welcome our new DT members: Nicole, Kristina, and Shelly! Welcome ladies!!

Be sure to stop by and play along with our first challenge for May--- ANYTHING GOES! Click HERE for details to join in the fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Many blessings ❤️Sav
