It is with a heavy heart that I announce I've decided to close Stamper's Dream ! After many tears and much prayer, I just know it's the right thing for me to do. My grandchildren are growing up so quickly! I just feel the need to reclaim my life and spend more time with family and friends. As much as I love my store, my fabulous design team, and my faithful customers, I know it's time for other things to take priority in my life. No one can do it all. Well, not forever, anyway.

Stamper's Dream is having a SALE!

So...my loss is your gain! Everything in the store is 20% off with the coupon code Farewell2U. Just enter it on the checkout page in the coupon section and it will take 20% off the lowest marked price of the items in your shopping cart! There is a $20 minimum to activate the coupon. Sorry, but there will be no free shipping during the liquidation. All sales are final. Also, please be aware that there may be a delay in shipping due the volume.

And did you know we're having our very last Stamper's Dream blog hop??? I invited some of my most special friends to hop with us as well! Here's the lineup:

Michelle Rodgers
Becca Feeken
Tosha Leyendekker
Denise Marzec
Laurie Schmidlin
Carolyn King
Amy Sheffer
Arlene Cuevas
Teresa Kline
Jessica Diedrich
Mariana Grigsby
Lea Lawson
Jo Thompson

My undying thanks to members of The Dream Team both past and present! I have communicated with them privately...and I hope they know how much they mean to me. Always have. Always will!

Thanks so much for stopping by...

Best of luck on with whatever you take on next! And how wonderful to have made so many great friends and have had the opportunity to enjoy and share your craft. I am sure it has been a rewarding part of your life!

Oh Michelle, it is sad news for us, but really exciting changes are ahead for you. I just know it. While I was never on your dream team, I have always enjoyed following Stampers Dream and dream team samples. Stampers Dream will be sorely missed.

Will you (I HOPE!!! I HOPE!!!) continue to keep your blog and post about your art as well as your family?

Hugs to you!

As I watch my grandchildren grow with the speed of light I understand your wish to spend more time with yours.
Wishing you every blessing.

You might not remember me but I met you in Hobby Lobby this past weekend. I wish you all the best of luck and some much needed fun time with your family:)

Sending love and blessings on this bittersweet day. Farewells are hard, but I know you're doing the right thing and wish you success wherever life takes you next. But first, some much-needed R&R! A margarita in one hand and the hand of a loved one in the other sounds just about right! (Or maybe a Kool-Aid if the loved one is a grandchild :grin:) Love you!

It is with heavy heart that we bid farewell to Stamper's Dream and wish you health and happiness for many fulfilling years with your family and friends! I do hope that we will still have access to view the gallery to see all of the wonderful cards on it

Becca Feeken said...

Michelle, this is sooo hard, but as always you're the brave one to barrel on in life to bust through the next door. The papercrafting community will miss your charm and grace. I hope that you savor the sweetness of times to come and that you never forget your friends of old. I don't know what's next, but for you, I'm sure it will be good. Love you my friend.

Wishing you happiness, love and much joy on your new adventure. May God bless your path.
