Due to the nature of the defect, we have concluded that difficulties, dissatisfaction, and product returns will only become more widespread. The manufacturer is unable to correct the problem in a manner that we are certain would meet our high quality standards and provide us with a stable, long-term solution. Therefore, after a great deal of deliberation and in order to prevent further disappointment, the Blendabilities product line has been discontinued.
As you know I am a huge fan of Stampin' Up! product and the Blendabilities were no exception. I think I have all the pens except a couple of colors. While I am disappointed to lose this product line, I am pleased that Stampin' Up! is keeping its standards high and not trying to "make a buck" and sell you an inferior product.
Most of the markers that have already been sold have been absolutely fine, but there have been some packs with problems. If you have bought these pens from me and have any concerns about them, please let me know.
Luckily there are other ways of coloring your images with colors that match Stampin' Up! paper and accessories. Pull out those markers, blender pens and aqua pens! They will work great!
A friend sent me this today and, wow, it really hit home with me. Don't know about you, but we had lots of burned biscuits when I was growing up and I was famous for burning the biscuits when my kids were growing up!
When I was a kid, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. And I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage, and extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his biscuit, smile at my mom and ask me how my day was at school.
I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits. And I'll never forget what he said: "Honey, I love burned biscuits."
Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, "Your momma put in a long hard day at work today and she's real tired. And besides a burnt biscuit never hurt anyone!"
You know, life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people. I'm not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else. What I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each other’s faults and choosing to celebrate each other’s differences, is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.
So please pass me a biscuit. And yes, the burned one will do just fine! And please pass this along to someone who has enriched your life. I just did!
Life is too short to wake up with regrets! Love the people who treat you right and forgive the ones who don't, they could just be having a hard day.
Ain't that the truth? There are a few people who I'd like to send this along to but, I'll just take another burned biscuit please!
Have a great day!
Have a great day!
