The future of Clear Stamps at Clear Dollar Stamps
Clear Dollar Stamps has been a real blessing to my family and me for many years now. I fell in love with stamping about 8 years ago and have loved this craft and created stamps alongside many talented illustrators and artists ever since. I have loved each step of this path, and have prayed about each step I have taken.
This past year, God called me to homeschool my girls. They were doing wonderful in public school, they were at the top of their classes, and each had their own set of friends with which they had bonded. However, God told me that it was time to pull them in to a learning environment where we could make God a daily...no hourly.....part of their learning and growing. It isn't very often that you have a complete peace wash over you and hear God saying, "I want you to do ________". This is what happened to me standing in the isles of an homeschool convention in May of 2011....what a glorious experience! This last fall we began homeschooling and have enjoyed every minute of it....no it hasn't be complete perfection and bliss, but being in God's will has.
I have tried to juggle Clear Dollar Stamps and homeschooling for a year now, and I know that it can't be done.....well, can't be done well :-) I have always felt like Clear Dollar Stamps was my ministry by creating scripture stamps and art stamps that glorify God. I still feel this is my ministry, but it is going to have to take on a new face, at least for a while. As you have noticed, we have been producing more and more Digi Stamps and have not released any Clear Stamps since January of this year. Keeping up with the inventory, employees, shipping of physical stamps is just too much for a homeshooling mom....at this point. God has given me a peace about creating Clearly Digi Stamps (changing from Clear Dollar Stamps) and teaching each of you along the way how to use them and help you fall in love with Digis, just like I have! I am hoping in the future, I will be able to add some stamps back in the mix, but for now, I am going to enjoy my digi stamps!
I hope you will continue to follow us on our creative journey and be a part of our Digi stamp family!
