...Meet The Muses

I am so excited about getting back into weekly sketch challenges here, and part of the reason is the fact that I have some uber-talented women to help me out with samples every week. We will be starting our challenges this Tuesday, July 28th. How would like to meet "Mercy's Muses"?

Now I would like to take the time to answer a few questions that have been asked this weekend. I am no longer designing sketches for Stamps and Smiles, and I am no longer a part of any of the company's design teams. This was a personal decision that I was forced to make just this week, and I know that it was the right thing to do. Many of you have noticed that I have removed any and all links associated with that company, and I will not mention them again. I felt it was time to move on to pursue my own personal endeavors on my blog, and also have the freedom to pursue other designing and crafting options. I am so excited about having a fresh start, and the ability to create for other companies and design teams...the sky is the limit! :)

I hope you will join my in my new adventure, and I look forward to seeing all of your wonderful creations each week! Until then...

HEY! When I started pursuing the net for inspiration you were one of the first gals I came across ... that was 2-3 years ago. You have continued to be an inspiration to me and I have checked in with you daily for my "kick"... and I have prayed for you, too. So - I am sure that God has brought you to this place for "a time such as this"! You go girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't wait to participate in your challeges every week!
Blessings on yah!

YAY!! I'm so glad you're back to the sketches! Now, for some words of wisdom that I got from Angela at Unity:

There comes a time in life when you have to let go of all the pointless drama and the people who create it and surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard that you forget the bad and focus solely on the good. After all, life is too short to be anything but happy.
