I learned something really wonderful today and I wanted to share with my friends:
"When we believe or say we have been offended, we usually mean we feel insulted, mistreated, snubbed, or disrespected. And certainly clumsy, embarrassing, unprincipled, and mean-spirited things do occur in our interactions with other people that would allow us to take offense. However, it ultimately is impossible for another person to offend you or to offend me. Indeed, believing that another person offended us is fundamentally false. To be offended is a choice we make; it is not a condition inflicted or imposed upon us by someone or something else. In many instances, choosing to be offended is a symptom of a much deeper and more serious spiritual malady. You and I cannot control the intentions or behavior of other people. However, we do determine how we will act. Please remember that you and I are agents endowed with moral agency, and we can choose not to be offended."
I am not a person who is easily offended but I am hearing more and more of this term used in posts on blogs, facebook pages and in person and after hearing this today I felt prompted to share this with everyone on all forms of social media. It's a great lesson and reminder to us all!
Introducing the new and improved Stampin' Trimmer! Although paper
trimmers are a common crafting tool, this trimmer was designed
exclusively by paper crafters for paper crafters-and because it was made
by Stampin' Up!, you know it's a cut above the rest! Please note, the cutting and scoring blade refills will be available early in December.
Features of the All-New Stampin' Trimmer
An extra-wide 6-1/4" cutting base and an extended 14-1/2" ruler
The extra-wide cutting base provides a large work area and is marked
in 1/4" (4 mm) increments, allowing for small measurements.
The right-side grid helps you measure and cut very thin strips.
The extended cutting arm has a stabilizing leg to provide a sturdy and steady cutting surface for longer cuts.
When fully extended, the extended cutting arm sits flush with the
trimmer base, providing more accurate and consistent measurements across
the entire surface.
The cutting base and track include a full ruler, incorporating
measurements down to 1/16" and grid lines that mark each quarter inch.
All rulers and measurements on the base are printed under a plastic cover so your measurements won't wear off.
The base has nonskid feet, which keeps the Stampin' Trimmer securely in place on your work area.
A full 12" cutting and scoring track
The extra-long cutting track has space at the top and bottom so you
don't have to take the cutting and scoring blades out when you're not
The track gives you enough space to cut or score a full 12" (30.5 cm) without having to remove or switch out handles.
The cutting track locks in place for secure storage or transport.
The track includes an insertion point for cutting and scoring blade
handles so you can easily insert handles into the cutting track.
Specially designed handles and cutting track to ensure straight cuts
The hook on the scoring and cutting blade handles keeps the handles stable so the cuts are as straight as possible.
Handles come in two colors: dark for cutting, light for scoring.
The precision tip on the cutting blade allows you to pinpoint precisely where you're cutting.
The point on the side of each handle shows you where the blade will
cut, making it easy to see exactly where your cuts and scores will
Storage compartment under base
The storage compartment holds scoring and cutting tools such as a
Bone Folder, Simply Scored Stylus, extra scoring and cutting blades, and
even business cards.
Separate compartments within the storage compartment keep your tools
organized, and the clear cover makes it easy to see what you've stored.

THANK YOU for your service and for protecting my family! I believe in you all and stand behind you.
May God Bless you! I hope you will all listen to this song by Kristy Lee Cook
My dad would have loved this song. He was in WW2 an Army Staff Sgt one night he fell asleep in their foxhole and when he woke he was the only man left with his head still attached. Evidently the Japanese didn't see him in the hole, PTSD wasn't a diagnosis then, and I now know he had it. When I was a youngster, we had to use a 36" ruler to poke him to wake him because he would grab you and try to strangle you without realizing what he was doing.
May God bless all our soldiers, past present and future and hold them in his hands!
I love you and miss you daddy!
And to my daughter Katie who just signed up with the National Guard- I love you and pray for your safety. Hugs,
