Recently I received an email from Jeanette stating, "I never tire of seeing the things you design. I can never do those kinds of things but some persons like what I make very much. I am 91 years old and enjoy my favorite past time. Take care and thank you much for sharing so much with me."
Did you happen to note the part about being 91 years old? Jeanette also shared that as a child, she lived in the country without plumbing and lights . . . and this 91 year old woman is sending emails and following my blog?
Jeanette's email conversations and card have had a profound impact on me and brought a new perspective to my love of paper crafting. She not only brightened my day with her words and pretty card, she taught me that this passion for paper, creativity and desire to learn can nourish the soul for life.
Paper has introduced me to Jeanette and exposed me to the wisdom and kindness of so many stampers around the world. I'm so grateful to that little spark that started at my first Stampin' Up! workshop and can't believe the positive direction it has taken me. I plan to be stamping up a storm at 91. How about you?
