Lucky 13th Anniversary

I am lucky! I firmly believe that creativity saves lives – it changes my life on a continual basis! I don’t share much of my life because I want this to be about YOU, but I want to share that I struggle with pain from an injury and life circumstances. That pain altered my life’s path and brought me to start this business. Science shows that the act of creating without pressure heals – it allows me to heal. Creativity put me in a place which allowed me to think differently, which in turn allowed me to innovate solutions in my life. When your mind opens to something new and different it changes you, the creator – CREATIVITY changed me. To be able to share resources, inspiration and education with others is truly a gift that is a blessing in my life each day! I am lucky that YOU have given me the opportunity to own this business, as you are the ones who support this dream with your purchases, comments, laughter and kindness.

THIRTEEN years in business – it feels like a remarkable feat when I realize the hurdles we have been able, and continue, to overcome on this journey. My brain tries to wrap itself around each additional year this dream continues. It started with a blog called “Simple Dreams” – my dream has always been to enrich the lives of all those whose path crosses with mine. My hope and prayer is that we have brought joy in to YOUR life, as we strive to share our ideas and products with you. You bring me so much joy with your notes, cards, and comments. The assurance you have shared with me over these 13 years continues to drive me to try and continue with the mission of sharing the message that Creativity brings joy and saves lives, as well as continue to strive to produce products that allow your mind the opportunity to be open to learning and creativity.

I believe that creativity saves lives, it brings joy to those who create, as well as those who are gifted with the efforts from those creations! What a privilege and honor it is to move in to the Lucky 13th year of business! Huge, huge thanks to each and every one of you along this journey with me! Giant hugs – Ellen

    Dear Ellen
    Congratulations on your 13th anniversary. I am honestly happy for you and proud of you too lady. May God bless you with strength and courage to grow the business continuously and brings smiles to all the crafters around the world. I dont have any products of you but I know you give all the love and care to your customers.
    Yes crafting heals all souls and you lovely people have held me tight with your beautiful creations during my years of difficulty, hurt and pain. I wont be buying any products though i would love to as i have a huge medical bill to settle but as soon as i get a little extra cash i will come and shop. May you, your family and your lovely staff and their families too be blessed with good health and happiness always. with lots of love and gratitude
