We All Need Encouragement!

Happy Monday and welcome back to Gal Friday Stamping!  This week I will be focusing on the "Way to Goat" Stamp Set.  Why you may ask?

I am a Long Island girl, born and raised.  I never thought I would live anywhere else until I met my husband (thru E-Harmony by the way, but that is a story for another day!).  When we met he lived in PA. on a 10 acre farm and for me that was perfect because I love wide open spaces and animals.  

Times for us were tough at times so to try and earn a living we decided we would purchase goats, not befriend them and sell them for meat, it was a big thing in our area.  But after about three days we Just. Couldn't. Do.It!  Changing our minds meant changing the plan, so we invested in milk goats and the herd grew.  Long story short, we had 52 goats ranging in all sizes and we milked.  Boy did I love them.

Milking and taking care of them was hard work but oh so worth it! I began making cheese with the milk but found that the work and hours that I was putting in and the regulations for selling it was not very lucrative so I decided to try my hand in soaps and lotions (pardon the pun).  Wow!  What a success story that turned out to be.  We lived off the income to our sale for 2 years and it got us on the right road.  So if you every see the email, that is where it came from because I still use it today.

With that being said, when I saw this new stamp set in the Annual Catalog I go so excited!  I love goats and did I mention I miss mine dearly!  

Way to Goat is a fun and whimsical stamp set that I am going to showcase this week along with all the new In Colors.  And Friday's FB live will be a technique that you will not want to miss!

Just for the they do not eat tin cans, but they do love the glue used to adhere the labels!

Here is last weeks showcase. Using Blossoms in Bloom.
