Stamping with Kris

It’s that time of the year to reset your thinking and reach for the things you want.   My first goal is to share my love of Stampin’ Up! with you as much as I can.  I will continue to try and post 5 times a week and share different ideas and sometimes a link to a video or tutorial.  I am also a Weight Watcher lifetime member and so maintaining my goal weight and a completing my  10,000 steps every day are also goals I wish to pursue.  My husband and I love caravanning so fitting in more time to spend travelling around this fantastic country is also a goal for me for this year.  My wish for you is to have a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year and to spend as much time as you can doing the things you love with the people you love.
