Today, I was again reminded of why I love Stampin’ Up! and how we can all touch the lives of others by sending a note or through a random act of kindness. This past week Deanna Gonzalez joined my awesome team of stampers and dear friends. I was so excited to talk to her and welcome her to the Stampin’ Up! family! Our meeting to talk was set for today at 2:00pm. Upon arriving home at 1:00 o’clock, there was a box… it was addressed from Deanna. I couldn’t hardly wait to open it. I get SO EXCITED when I receive something from my stamping friends. I dropped everything I had in my hands and began to open it.
Upon opening the box, I saw the attention to detail and how beautifully everything was packaged so I quickly grabbed my camera. I wanted to take pictures of it all and share it with you. This was such an amazing gift that just kept on giving!!!
The first thing I pulled out was this lovely card and enveloped stamped with the Mixed bunch stamp set. It was so beautifully done in pool party with a daffodil delight accent. Wow!
Next, I opened this lovely favor. Oh, it was just beautiful! I love the stick pins and am so excited to try that idea.
I couldn’t hardly believe there were more items in the box as the card and favor were enough. I reached inside to find a beautifully decorated box with a beautiful ornament inside it. The ornate beading arrangement laying over the ornament was to die for. It was breathandtaking. This ornament will hang proudly on my Christmas tree!
Next, I pulled out a beautifully embellished box with a gorgeous necklace she made for me. Let’s just say, at this point, I have tears in my eyes and have never felt more loved and more excited to reach out to others and make and send more cards.
Look at this beautiful necklace… WOW!!! What a work of art. I am looking forward to wearing it proudly and telling everyone of the wonderful young lady who made it for me. Thank you Deanna!
Please know that as soon as we get Deanna’s website up and going, I will share it with you. She is planning on sharing her amazing talents via video. Yay!!! I can’t wait!
Thank you for sharing your gift with us Brandy. Deanna you have an amazing talent and I can’t wait to see your blog. If you sell your beaded Christmas ornaments I have a few extra special ladies I’d love to buy them for.
Such a joy to see the work of two such talented ladies.
All the best, Ayles
Oh Brandy. What a sweet thing you did by displaying my daughter’s beautiful handiwork and saying such lovely things about her. I, of course, being her mom, am just a bit prejudiced in thinking my Deanna is the very best! Her talents are many and actually began when she was very young. I am so proud of her and it’s very nice to see her talents appreciated by others, as well. Bless you!
These are very well done. Thank you for passing on your ideas. I would love to see your blog, too. It’s so nice to be part of a team that is willing to share their ideas.
Thank you Myra for leaving such a kind comment. Sure do love having you apart of my team!!! Sending hugs your way!!!
Ok, I am in tears!!! I am so touched first off Brandy that it meant so much to you! I just really wanted to make you smile, and I am so glad I did! Thank you everyone for the encouraging words! I sure needed them! Today I have been working hard to make some new ideas for a competition, and as we can be our worst critics I felt utterly hopeless hehe! I now feel encouraged, and I am SO excited! I plan to get things up and running next week! I would be honored if any one would like to see my blog and let me know how I am doing, and what you would wish to see. I LOVE being on Brandy’s team, thanks again everyone! You are all darlings!
Deanna you make very lovely things. Brandy will get lots of joy from these things.
Deanna you are so talented. You sure know how to make someones day.
Blessings being shared. Thank you.

How very thoughtful. The bond of friendship that we all make in our StampIn Up journeys is just amazing and such a blessing. I know you will always cherish her friendship. On a different note I would really like to have your address so I may send you a card thanking you for all you do through your videos and and cards that you share. Have a blessed week Brandy.
Really looking forward to following her blog.
