A new kit welcoming a new decade!

3oth

Today is the day that we’re releasing our new kit – ‘Reflections‘. It’s a bonus kit for August – and it was my moment to be really selfish and come out with a product that *I* really loved.

It’s my 30th Birthday on Saturday – August 30th – and as I welcome a new decade, you know I couldn’t help being thoughtful about my last decade. I’m a self proclaimed ‘deep thinker’ – I love inspirational quotes and things that make me go ‘YES’ – ‘THAT’S IT’ … you know, a hopeful romantic that is as easy to tears as to jumping up and down laughing.

Yeah, I’m – umm, extreme?

No, wait – that’s not really fair – I’m passionate. Yep, that’s it.

I’m just bursting with passion for life. I don’t do anything partially – I’m an ‘all in’ kind of gal. I’m that way with friends – family – business – food – television shows (hello 8 hours of streaming Netflix, because we have time for ‘one more episode’ – right?) – books …. really anything – I’m IN! I can have deep rooted opinions about religion and politics – and what sort of ratio of creamer vs coffee should be in my morning cup… and I’m equally passionate about both. {at this point Mr. Sweet is giggling – because it’s true} — It’s just the speed I run my life at – and you could call me manic, obsessive – and probably struggling with a life long case of attention deficit disorder. {ADD}

You’d be right.

But, I’ve realized – I was always this way … it’s the perspective that’s changed.

Take me three years ago – 90+lbs heavier – starting a new business – trying to not feel completely like a loser that I was married and once again living ‘with Mom and Dad’ … wondering how exactly I was going to have a ‘career’ when no one took me seriously. I was a college drop out … a college drop. out. {humph, that’s rough}

BUT

Was I any more/less passionate or manic – or ADD – or obsessive?

No.

Except, I saw those characteristics as ‘negatives’. As, the things I needed to ‘work on’.

Truth? There is a TON of things I have to ‘work on’ … being obsessive and passionate and manic and ADD – isn’t one of them. They’re what sets me apart – and when I opened Sweet Stamp Shop – and those characteristics are POSITIVE for a home run business – I started to change my perspective.

CHANGE.

I didn’t change – I changed the way I looked at myself.

So, this kit – this is really just a chance for me to say to you:

HEY YOU!

{yeah, you}

You’re totally going to rock this – you’re going to take life and not accept anything less than *freakin* awesome. And, you’re going to document it – you’re going to turn the camera around and take a few more pictures of YOU – and you’re going to share the real YOU.

You’re going to ask yourself, if I could go back and sit with my parents when they were this age – what would I ask them? Then, you’re going to take those questions, ask them of yourself and keep those for your kids one day.

You’re going to tell your story – your way – with your spin.

Spin the *hell* out of it. {sorry, that needed the curse word}

It’s your life – your story – your truth.

Tell it.

Reflect.

Without anything further – I’m totally happy to present our new kit – in honor of 30 years of me rocking the socks off this ‘life’ thing… and so completely humbled that you’ve let me share it with you!

We have some really – really – talented designers on board to show off this kit. It would mean A LOT to me if you took a moment and went to their blog – or watched their videos – or followed them on youtube! These designers are working hard and it means A LOT to just know that it’s being enjoyed by someone!
