Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop-Words of Truth

Hello! Welcome back to another Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Join us each week as Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team members from around the world share our ideas using Stampin' Up! products with you!

The new Stampin' Up! Catalog has gone live and you can now order all of the fabulous new products that the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team has been featuring! This week we are featuring the Words of Truth stamp set and the Schoolhouse DSP. I love the samples of the lunchbox notes using these items that are in the catalog, I think they would also make wonderful PL pocket page cards!

Recently Gage has been taking private swim lessons. He has proprioceptive and vestibular dysfunction, so it is a HUGE deal for him! We have been trying to get him to take swim lessons since he was 3-years-old, but this is the first year (he is now 7) that he has agreed to it. . . probably because he cousins recently swam with the dolphins and, after watching Dolphin Tale, Gage has decided he would also like to swim with the dolphins! Perfect opportunity for mom to require him to learn how to swim! I know to most parents, having their child learn to swim may not be a big deal. . . but if there are any other SPD moms out there who have kids who hate the water, hate having their heads tipped back, etc., etc., you know just what a huge breakthrough this is!
After just two weeks of private lessons Gage will now put his face in the water while swimming on his belly, AND float on his back (this was the hardest for him to achieve, as having his head back is extremely discomforting to him)! So. . . I had to celebrate with a card of encouragement for my little guy, and the Words of Truth set was the perfect set to create just such a card!

 Let's continue on our hop and head over to Cindy's blog, shall we?!
