Meet The Bloom Brigade

With a little bit of the story of Power Poppy unveiled yesterday, today we get to share some of the "faces" that will help bring Power Poppy to full bloom! We affectionately call this fabulous and fierce team "The Bloom Brigade" because as you'll soon see - each one has a wild an beautiful facet that they bring with them to this very creative team! Want to learn a little more about this wildly talented force of artistic talent? Marcella asked each of us a question and many of them made us say... "Hmmmm...."  Here is my question and answer..

Q.What is the one thing you pledge to do this year?

A....The one thing I really would love to do this year is run a half marathon without walking.  These past 2 years my family and I have been a health "full" journey.  I (with the help of some friends encouragement) joined a Crossfit group.  3 days a week you will find me lifting weights, running and doing burpees.  It has really helped me mentally also.  I can do things now that I never would have dreamed possible.  My family and I have lost over 35 lbs.  Now I need to push myself and do the marathon training.  I am so excited to be on this team and can't wait to see what the future holds.  Thank you so much to Marcy our fearless leader.  

Now hop on along and see what all the other ladies questions and answers.

These wonderfully dynamic women all have different "sides" to their lives! See what makes their creativity click! Learn a little more as you hop on over and see.....

Tomorrow, we get one step closer to the big sneaks with a peek into Marcella's sketch books. What inspired her first Power Poppy release? She'll share with all of YOU!


  1. Awesome! So happy to hear that you are working on "you" girl. The workouts are hard but they are so worth it aren't they? You know how excited I am to be working with you again and have you with us. You are such a treasure and I knew that the minute we met. AND I knew it even more when you so graciously went with this sobbing girl to the airport so she would not be alone and scared. You are a treasure sweet friend, don't EVER forget that! Big hugs!

  2. You go girl :) Hear cross fit is pretty intense but great training. Wonderful goal and here's to achieving it!

  3. You are a fantastic lady, full of inner (and outer!) strength! I treasure being able to design with you again!

  4. WOW!! Congrats on your Health Journey - it sure sounds like it's working wonders! Good luck with the marathon and looking forward to our creative journey together with the Bloom Brigade! :)

  5. Wow, Dawn...that sounds amazing! I am so excited to be on this team with all of you! I have admired your beautiful cards for quite a while and cannot wait to see what you create with these wonderful new images. This is going to be so much fun! So looking forward to getting to know you, Dawn! :)

  6. Awesome changes for you and your family Dawn! Quite an accomplishment! I am so happy to be working with you again!

  7. Hi Dawn girl. You are such a true genuine, beautiful person. I love you and miss you. What a neat team and concept. Cannot wait to learn more.

  8. Oh, my! Crossfit and marathons? Now that's physical fitness ambition! For me there's nothing like a good hike through the fields and forests (with the dogs and Rich, of course) to rejuvenate my spirit. Dawn, my hat is off to you! I'd like to add most sincerely that I'm happy to be working with you again. It's going to be a wonderful time, I think!

  9. I have a lot of respect for someone who does marathons. My son does triathlons, so I know how much commitment and hard work it takes....well, based on what he's told me anyway. ;) You go Girl!! I am so looking forward to getting to know you better on this team Dawn!! This is going to be such an awesome journey!!

  10. Oh my.. you're my HERO! Not only are you kicking butt in the gym, but you want to run a half marathon! Before long you'll be IRON WOMAN DAWN! ;-) You rock girl -- both inside and out and I am so very, very excited to share THIS creative journey with you!

  11. Oh, I'm so jealous of you for being so fit! That is one area I REALLY need to work on! If you can do it, I can at least give it a shot! I think you are an inspiration to so many of us!


Thank you so much for sharing your comments with me. I really appreciate it.. Have a great stamping day..
