Watchout Wednesday - My Girl Jessica!

Jessica has supported us from the VERY BEGINNING! I think she is one of the first gals to place an order and has been unbelievably kind and supportive ever since. She is so nice to have around the SPLITCOAST Forum. Thank you Jessica. We are so happy to have you as part of Unity!

I am a happy stamper, wife, and mom of a delightful 10 month old boy. I am currently on leave from my elementary school teaching job to stay at home with him, which I love! I've been stamping for about 14 years, and luckily stumbled into Unity because of a banner on SCS announcing the grand opening party. I've been hooked by the fantastic stamps and all the creative, kind people ever since! Unity is an addiction that I'm quite happy to have!

What is your favorite kit? What? I can't pick just one! I love Cupcakes a'la Yummy, Giggle Grove and all the kits of the month so far. If I had to pick JUST one, though it would be the Create Yourself single.

What is your favorite quote? (again, can't pick just one!)Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be.
Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
Groucho Marx
Look at everything as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time. Then your time on earth will be filled with glory.
Betty Smith

Without music, life would be a mistake.... I would only believe in a God who knew how to dance.
Friedrich Nietzscheany

What books are your reading? Like everyone else, it seems, I'm reading the Twilight series. I just finished book 2, and am waiting for Eclipse to come in at the library!

What inspires you to create? Right now, because of my busy SAHM status, I am relying pretty much on challenges to inspire me: sketches, color combos, inspiration pieces. They give me a jumping off point that allows me to work more quickly (during the baby's nap!). Sometimes a stamp itself will speak to me, though, and I just go from there!
I LOVE Unity! The stamps are great, but the people are EVEN BETTER!
Thank YOU, Jessica! Love having you here, love your creativity, love your mommy skills, and LOVE *LOVE *LOVE that you are so supportive of Unity!
In other Unity News!
I met a lovely couple at CHA. It was so rushed when they were in the booth that I know they felt like I was a bit unfocused and dingy, however - Christine did a marvelous job at explaining UNITY on her blog today! {THANK YOU, THANK You!}
Leave a little comment for her and I will go pick someone to win the TWO sets that she has focused on in her tutorial!
....and by the way - her layout that she did with Unity Stamps is STUNNING! Go see it!
