Merry Christmas to all....

I want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and the most wonderful new year!!

I want to thank everyone for their amazing support over the past year at All Moments Remembered. There have been many changes and more changes happening now at AMR. I am always hopeful they will be good changes and we are always pushing forward to more wonderful things. I can say with all my heart that I feel I have one of the sweetest groups of ladies on my message board. I could not have asked for anything better for my message board. I am so proud to call them all my friends.

As many know we just mailed out our last kit from the kit club. It was a fun year with it and Heather did a beautiful job designing it each month. We sold it out each month which was more then I ever hoped for. But the nightmare of trying to get everything in on time and sent out on time became just to much. So with great sadness we decided to shut the kit club down. I will always be thankful to Heather for all she did for me over the past year. Some company will be so lucky to get her on their DT or get her to design kits for them. She has an amazing eye for putting everything together. See her layouts and you will see that talent is dripping off this girl. I often wondered how I got so lucky to have found her and for her to have joined me on this venture. Thank you Heather!
Then there is the design team girls. Our first group with Linda and Tracy was so much fun. They had such talent and kept things hopping around here. I hope they have done wonderful things since then. The latest DT's Deb and Jenn are going to be missed so much. I met Jenn in person at cha and wow is she a doll. I am so fortunate to have met her. We had many nights of giggling at CHA. OHHH wait Heather and I were giggling all night long while Jenn slept through it. LOL!! ARRRGGHHHH Mattey!! (inside joke there) What a time we had. Jenn is a very talented lady and I know she will be on a new design team soon. We will see her work in more books and magazines. This girl is going to be known in the scrapbook world, mark my words. Deb has started designing a kit club for a friend of hers near where she lives. I wish her tons of luck with it and huge successes. Debbie's style of scrapbooking has always been a favorite of mine. I hope to create projects as beautiful as hers some day. Debbie is one of the sweetest ladys to talk to and was wonderful to me always. I wish all these girls the best life has to offer!!! I will miss them as they move on. I sure hope they do not become strangers to the board and still post with us. May all your dreams in the world of scrapbooking come true.

So no kit club for 2009! :( But we are in the works for some amazing talented designers to come here and teach classes in the store front and online for us. Anne Marie who is loved by so many is back to run the online crops! Our first one is Jan 9th and will run all weekend. More info coming soon on that. We have many more things up our sleeves but will let you all in on it soon. If you love challenges, raks and fun times then stay tuned!!

Thank you to all who have supported me through the lose of my father In law this summer. Watching someone you love die for a year is not easy. But I sure can say I had an amazing amount of love and support here. I then opened a store front scrapbook store two months ago. It has gone fantastic. Thank you to all of you who shop in there! I am so enjoying it and love being able to meet and talk with people that come in. Opening the store has not come without problems. Trying to balance my time between both stores and my family has been a challenge. A challenge I am learning and trying all the time to improve. I think I am learning lots of new things and will be able to bring my customer service both online and in store back to the best it always was! No kits and learning more and more all the time is going to make things flow easier! I am very excited about the new year ahead. I hope you will join us in the venture!

I want to close this post with a request for prayer for a dear friend Leslie. She has 8 brain tumors and is going through treatments right now. I believe with all my heart and soul that miracles happen and in the power of prayer. So if you have a moment during this busy time of year please say a prayer for her to be cured and to make it through the treatments with as little pain as possible. If you don't know Leslie you are missing out, she is one fantastic lady. Love you Leslie!! We should expect miracles!!!

So again have a Merry Christmas and the most wonderful new year possible!
Hugs to all,
Stacey

Changes often have a sad note to them, but if we find the good in them they can be a way of growth for us. So glad for the successes you have known during 2008 and hope that they will be even greater in 2009.

Very well said, Stacey. This is one of the reason's we love you. Everything you do and say comes from your heart. We may have given you alot in regards to support and friendship but don't forget you've given the same, if not MORE back to us. I'm also another one who's been here from the beginning, well the 2nd day to be honest and I'm so very proud of all you've accomplished in such a short time. You are an awesome role model and I'm extremely thankful that I've met you, even though its cyberly. But I've noticed you can have real friends cyberly too.

Wishing you and your family a MERRY CHRISTMAS and the HAPPIEST NEW YEAR for 2009.
