Gratitude, Kindness, and Karma

Hello All!

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to each and every one of our devoted customers, subscribers, and Tulip Girls for making my first month such a huge success here at Label Tulip. The kits sales were more than I could have ever dreamed for -- cheesy as it is to say, you like me, you really like me! I'm so glad you are finding the kits beautiful, intriguing, and challenging. Because more than anything, I want to bring out the inner artist in all of us.

Check out the Gallery!
The Design Team, or Tulip Girls, have done some amazing work and you can catch it on the gallery at . Seriously, don't miss their amazing creations....a headband? a box? a framed work of art? These girls know how to be paper artists, and that's always what I've encouraged and loved. And the WONDERFUL challenge to write a letter to your 18 year old self -- how amazingly introspective and personal a challenge, way to go! I can't wait to see what all our members come up with.

October Already?!
You all have made this the best month of my life since the birth of my daughter last year; thank you so much for that! I can promise you that October is going to be even bigger and better! I already have the Etsy Artist lined up, our Guest Artist set to go, and the kits are almost finalized...this month we will feature 4 paper vendors and a slew of embellies, 6 of them custom made just for Label Tulip. October is definitely a can't miss!

As I reflect on the past month and all the amazing support I have received from my "scrappy family", I can't help but think about Karma and the role it plays in my life. No matter what spirituality you practice, most of us believe that whatever we give comes back to us ten-fold, and whatever we take, is taken away. I have worked very hard the past year to become a better person, a giving person. I volunteer every week to answer a helpline; I give back at my child's school; and I always try to be understanding when customers have special situations. In essence, I treat others the way I would want to be treated. As we quickly move through September and into the Fall and Holidays, let's take a moment to remember to always treat as we'd want to be treated, and give as we would want to be given. It's not an easy request, but together, through our sharing and discussions on the Forums, I'm sure we can all grow in the next few months. I am going to be working on a layout about this that I will hopefully post soon.

I'm sending you all the biggest HUG possible! MWUAH!

I love when you said "to remember to always treat as we'd want to be treated, and give as we would want to be given."
It is something I have been working on this year as a whole.
Even if it is driving to work, at work, at home...etc. It can get hard b/c life gets hard..and busy..and frantic and I sometimes forget that I impact the ones around me, even if only for a brief moment, I can actually change that person's day...or maybe even their life.
So, it is such a good statement to try to live by.
