Inking Idaho Is Changing a Bit

Hello my dear blogging friends and happy May 1st to you!
In about a month I will have been blogging 10 years.  Can you believe that?  Some of you have been with me since the first day.  You’ve watched my kids grow up, my style change and evolve, celebrated my accomplishments with me and embraced my obsession for creating as many cards with one stamp set as humanly possible!  You’ve grieved with me, assured me I would survive when our oldest left for college and probably made fun of me while I cried over my favorite colors and stamp sets being discontinued. With posting to my blog every other day for 10 years, you’ve seen it all!
During these 10 years, I’ve exclusively featured Stampin’ Up! products and have been with SU as a demonstrator for the past 15 years.  I have loved, protected and supported Stampin’ Up! and I am grateful to them for the professional and personal development they provided me. However, as of April 30th, I have resigned as a demonstrator and I plan on joining Fun Stampers Journey (FSJ) beginning on June 1st.  In the future, my website will feature FSJ products instead of SU!.
 
 I will continue to create, blog and share my passion for stamping and papercrafting with you, just the brand and colors will change.
I’ve had a wonderful 10 years sharing my papercrafting obsession with you, so I hope you continue to tune in to this blog.  My blogging schedule will remain the same as well as the look of my blog.  The shopping cart is currently disconnected and will change to FSJ soon.  My goal is to continue to provide you with the inspiration to create on your own.  Thank you for 10 wonderful years of personal and virtual friendship and I’m looking forward to my new journey with you!
Stamp On!
Becky

  16. I congratulate you on your new adventure - I'm sure it will be a success!
    But I'm feeling sorry for myself because I will miss your Stampin' Up! inspiration. I'll have been a demo for 10 years next February and I have been following you ever since I started. :)
    Thank you for all the wonderful ideas you have shared, and I shall continue following your blog!
    All the best to you and your family.

  18. I am in total SHOCK! I will miss you so much and your inspiration and collaboration on our special 'projects' has meant more to me than you will ever know. But I will always consider you a friend and will be here if I can ever help you with 'stuff' in the future. I know you will just ROCK anything you do, but selfishly, I am just so bummed you have already resigned. xoxxo always, Tamra

  21. Will we still be able to follow you on this blog post?? I like change also, although it is scary at times. Even though I purchase Stampi Up products from a lady here in Hoquiam at her classes, I also venture to other products, as I like diversity in stamping. I look forward to following you on your new adventure. Thank ypu.

  32. My heart is sad that you will no longer be a SU demo. (That actually means I'll be sad that I don't see (from a distance) at the Stampin' UP! events). I am however thrilled that you will continue your stamping journey and continue to bring us new fresh options with different stamps and colors. Wishing you only the VERY BEST on this new adventure you will be taking on. Look forward to seeing what FUN adventures await you.

  34. I have followed you for about eight years Becky. This announcement was as others say "shocking". I have always enjoyed your blog, your SU ideas ( I am a hobby demostrator) and seeing your family grow. Best of luck to you for your future adventure. I will still be following you on your blog because you have so much talent to share.

  35. Becky: You don't know me, I'm just a hobby stamper, but I've enjoyed seeing what you create over the years...I have poked around FSJ site, but never purchased any of their products. I'll continue to follow you and good luck - you are gifted and talented!

  36. Dear Becky.....I wish you all the very best in this world and know you will continue to be successful. Nevertheless, I am a bit sad as you were one of the reasons I always wanted to become a SU! Demo even before they came to Germany. I will continue to read your blog but will miss your SU! inspirations. Fondest & big hugs ����

  38. So sad to hear you are leaving SU as I have followed your blog for years and have loved and appreciated all of your wonderful creations. I still have several of your old emails in my mail that I refuse to delete. Wishing you the best of luck in your new adventure. Looking forward to seeing all of your new inspiration. As I am a hobby SU demo, I enjoy several different stamp companies and products.

  52. This was quite a surprise to read, but so glad that you are going to continue stamping! I am inspired by your projects and have recreated many of them using what I have which more likely than not isn't SU! It isn't the company that you design for that is important to me as it is your willingness to share. I have followed you for many years and even though you don't know me, I feel like I know you and your family. :)

    I've never heard of this company, but continue to look forward to your enthusiasm and creations.

  53. Wow, I am so sad to hear this .... you will be missed by so many! I am sure you will do great even though I like our stamps better! Always have and always will.

  65. Hey there, Becky! This is your fellow paper crafter and Mama Bear in San Jose, CA. My! Oh! My! What an inspiration you and your creative talents have been to so many blog readers through the years and I'm right at the top of that list. I have gained so much valuable insight and growth from changes in my life and I know the same experiences are waiting for you! Surrounded by your loving family, I can't wait to read where this new pathway will lead you - and us! One of my favorite quotes about change says something like this: "And suddenly you just know...It's time to start something new and trust in the magic of new beginnings." Congrats and I'm cheering you on from the sidelines here in San Jose, CA! <3 KT

  69. Wow, this is a big announcement! I've been a long time fan of yours. I am actually a consultant with a competitor of SU for the past 10 years and I've loved to use your inspiration along the way. I've purchased some of your fabulous tutorials and hope that you will continue those with FSJ as well. My big question is... will you keep your SU information on your blog (archived in some way)? I'm really hoping we'll still have access to your prior photos and ideas. I wish you the best of luck in your new adventure. I will continue to come back and stalk your blog often. ;)
