My mama always taught me that "Where there's a will, there's a way". It has helped me many times to get through a difficulty and I have found it to be very true. Love your blog. Thanks for all the great tips and info.

I learned like 4-5 bits of wisdom reading your blog today I love the storage for the dies, cant wait until my Birthday to order some.
SO, I guess my bit of wisdom for today would be. "Patience is a Virtue"... Have a great memorail day


Here is my favorite saying from my brother which I find rings true.."Don't mistake my kindness for a weakness." Thank you for working so hard in trying to bring us the best products on the market AND showing us how to use them!!!!!!!!


I love your blog and your store. Your cards are absolutely beautiful. I want the copics....

My youth leader as a teenager taught me this and I love it. "It is never right to do wrong to do right."

thanks, Ellen


Thanks for the update on your cool new tools. Maybe in October I can get them. My words of wisdom are from an e-mail too long to put here, but I'll see if I can shrink it down a bit. Three things are placed in boiling water. A carrot, egg and ground coffee beans. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its insides became hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water. My wrap up to this: Be like the coffee beans!
You have managed to do that, Ellen! You inspire me!


OOH! Awesome candy - always so generous! One of my favourite bits of wisdom is - choose your battles carefully but if it is worth fighting for it is WORTH fighting for. And also - if the only prayer you ever say is "Thank you", that is enough.


Ellen-Thanks for the great blog! I always love reading all of your wonderful insite. Thanks for the shot at some great blog candy too.

Ellen, love your blog and site. Thank you. My quote is from my father who always says this to us when we just can't understand why someone would do or say something: "People will be people. Thanks


Aloha Ellen,

"The secret to having it all is believing that you already have."

Love your blog...
And I love my Copic!!, peace & happiness



Life is not measured by the number of breathes we take, it's measured by the number of moments that take our breath away. Thank you for offering such incredible blog candy.

One of my favorites is "Friends are the Umbrellas in the Storms of Life". I love your idea of the magnetic plates for the dies.

Hi Ellen,

Thank you for always being so informative on your blog!

A favorite quote of mine is:

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow." M. Radbacher

Thank you!

I have received my copic markers and sparkling markers, can we say "love them"....also, pretty excited about the prizes for the pre-orders on then nestabilities, you are so kind.

The thing my husband and I tried to instill in our 4 children while they were growing up was "WWJD", what would Jesus do? To this day they all remember it, and it blesses my heart to know that it has become a quote they will pass on to their children (of course we pray the Lord will bless us someday with grandchildren, non yet and my oldest will be 30 on October 5th).

Love your blog, your are the bomb!

We love you Ellen!


Hi Ellen!

Thanks for the update - can't wait to get my dies! Should be a lot of fun. As for words of wisdom. Hmmm. Always found this comforting:

"I am with you always - even unto the end of the world" Matthew 28:20


I can't believe the free dies are the stars!!! I almost fell out of my chair when I read that. I have been waiting all summer for the update of when the stars were going to be released and here I find out I'm getting them free!!! What a nice surprise. :) I feel like I already won something. Not to mention the great deal you are offering on the Wizard this month. You are so twisting my arm. LOL

My quote: Patience is the ability to count down before you blast off.

Jazzi Brunelle

Ellen - waiting for my order has not been a problem as time has been short lately. One of my favorite poems is Desiderata and one line in particular always calms me when I am stressed: Go placidly amidst the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence.


My new favorite advice:

I will do today what others won't do, so tomorrow I can do what others can't.

Love the blog candy! Thx!


My favorite quote in high school I can't seem to remember now- the gist of it was

If you have built your castle in the clouds, do not worry, that is where it should be- now build foundations under it.


Thanks for the heads up on the Nestabilities...I'm still thinking on that one. I just purchased a Spellbinder last Thursday & haven't really had a chance to play with it. Unfortunately, the store didn't have any dies that thrilled me so I'm off to your store to check things out. Thanks for the chance to win an awesome blog prize.


I love your website and all the great info you provide. Thanks!

Even though they haven't come in yet I am still kickin myself for not ordering SN. Maybe I can win the candy instead. I love this saying one:

Hi Ellen! Great blog prize! This may be simple, but mine is "don't sweat the small stuff". I've learned over the years that there are alot of things going on worse that what I am experiencing.

This is from Kitty Bartholomew: "It's not what you don't have, it's what you do with what you do have." This is so true for so many areas of your life. Thanks Ellen for all you do for others. It is appreciated.
