    Letting go and moving forward isn’t always an easy thing to do. Somehow we feel like we should be able to it all, all the time and there comes a point where we have to focus and get back on track. That is a lot of what I have been doing in buying my house and packing to move. I’m still working thing out in my journey and looking to new things and how to balance just what it is I WANT to do.

    I fully understand what you are looking at. I’m sure there are lots of things you’ll be posting that I wish I could afford but right now things are going into my new house and until I can get things to where I can actually set up my craft room I’m making myself behave! I do however have a new Brother Scan and cut 2 coming (free of charge) thanks to being a part of the Wal-Mart Spark Review Program, and I’m looking forward to reviewing it.

    Also looking forward to the future of LifeAboveRubies and all of the help and knowledge I find there, as well as the relationships and fellowship of others on the journey.

    You go girl and best of luck in all that you pursue!

  • Carmen Elrod

    HI Megan~I am not going to lie~this post makes me very sad to hear, but I am also happy for you. I am sure this is going to be much better for your health and your family. I love watching your tutorials and I have from Day ! There is no one else who can teach crafting with such a fun and personal attitude! I am going to miss it soooooooooo much! I am really glad to be able to watch all of the old ones! I have a baby shower for my son tomorrow and want to see that list right away! I suppose you arent selling your Cricut Expression> I have been wanting to get another one in case mine breaks…….. Love you lots Megan! Thank you for being you! <3

  • Chris

    Enjoy your new journey and life. Sometimes we just need to reboot. Sounds like you are heading into the right direction. Hang in there and take it easy.

  • LilGreenBug

    Wow! So many changes! I know you will move forward with faith and enthusiasm and succeed in all you do! You are in my prayers, as always, dear friend.

    Blessings and hugs to you and your three precious gifts.

    Love ya, girl!

  • Cynthia Jordan Brown

    Where can I find the items that are for sell. Also, would you be willing to donate some items after your sell to a small inner church that is trying to develop a after school program for the neighborhood children. I have followed you for a long time and wish you nothing but the best in your future.

    • Lisa Hess

      Hi Cynthia, Can you privately email me with more details about the donations you are looking for as I’m cleaning out too and I donated over $1K worth of supplies to the local Girl Scout’s and to others, but would like to help you out if possible.

      Thanks, Lisa Hess

  • Barb

    Sad and happy news. I was wondering. I can understand because of all the demands. I just craft for gifts and my own memory records but even that can seem demanding. Thanks for all that you have shared. Love ya!

  • Margie Iwamoto

    Megan, I would like to congratulate you on your courageous decision. It is scary to change from the comfortable to the unknown. I know that you will succeed because you have your innocent and trusting children counting on your success. I want to wish you the best as you go forth in this new chapter in life.

  • Amanda

    I’m not sure if this is where I suppose to post but can I have 1 medium boy and 1 large box? If you have any boxed geared more towards card making that would be amazing!!

    Sorry to hear you cleaning 5his out but I’m happy to know that your putting more energy into life above rubbies.

  • Jane

    WOW! Do you know how many times I have wanted to down size my sewing craft stuff? And you are doing it. I have started many times but never get over half way thru it. Keep the movement going. And have you found any surprises–Good ones that is. I hope this inspire others and myself to clean out. Cheering you on a few miles south of you in Dodge Co. Wi.

  • Luria

    Hi Megan,

    I know it’s hard to let go of so many things but when you do it makes room for something better. I know you will be great at what ever you decide to do. Continue to put God first and all things will fall in place. I support you 100%. Take care of yourself. Be blessed.


  • Lisa Hess

    Hi Megan, I’m interested in the Theresa Collins Stamp maker and it looks like it comes with a lot of stuff, but besides the basic kit, even enlarging the picture I cannot see exactly what it includes (i.e., what’s in the DVD cases, etc. Could you please put out a bit more detail on it. Many thanks in advance,

    Lisa Hess

    • Megan Elizabeth Post author

      Lisa the kit includes a variety of stamp packets and the A to Z DVD on how to use the machine. It includes the UV light box and scrub brush, blocks for the stamps you create, the stamp packets are stored in DVD cases from the company as well 😉

  • Debbie Horn

    At this time I am not financially able to purchase any of your craft items, but I did not want to let that stop
    me from wishing you the very best! Life truly is about the journey. We learn so much throughout our walk
    in life and then one day, we realize we need to sort out that knowledge and keep what is positive and helps us to move forward with what God has planned for our lives. You are a very special person and you have
    the sweetest soul. We all love you! I will continue to pray that God will keep you strong. He like all of us are
    so proud of you. Your honesty with and about your feelings inspire many of us to get real with ourselves.
    (Not always an easy thing to do.) Sometimes we get all caught up in what others want and expect of us, that we forget about what we want and fail at times to meet expectations we have set for ourselves. Wow!
    that is when we become overwhelmed.
    I am so proud of you for taking charge of you and your heart of hearts. You are truly an amazing woman,
    Keep your eye on the beauty of life and your heart one on one with God. He needs you to work for him as much as He does for you. He keeps your Christian light shining brightly!
    Good luck with your future endeavors, and always know as each day passes, you are getting closer to reintroducing Megan to Megan.
    God bless you always. I will continue to follow you and your journey. I care. I am 63 years young, and I have learned so much from you, not just crafting information, but life information. Information that I have been able to apply wisely in my own life. Thank you for allowing me to walk with you on your journey.
    Remember you are loved beyond measure by all who know you.

    Debbie Horn

      • Debbie Horn

        You are so sweet and so kind. Let your tears become liquid joy as they stream down your beautiful face. You have worked hard and sacrificed so much for your family and friends. You not only deserve inner peace and happiness, you have earned it. Stay well, stay happy, stay connected to God. He has
        big plans for His Megan.
        God Bless you dear friend.

  • Linda Clark

    Happy that you are “taking charge”. It must be exhilarating as well as frightening. Good luck on your journey. Do you have Stampin Up. If so, could you make a BIG box with paper, ink and stamps? That would be fantastic!

  • Liz West

    I am so happy for you and wish you the best in your “new” endeavor. I would like to know if you have any of your A to Z Dvds on how to use the Teresa Collins Stampmaker available? Would you please email me at if you do and what the cost would be?

    Thank you ,
    Liz West

  • Jeanne Keable

    God Bless You in your new venture, Megan. I, too, have had to go through some life-changing situations recently and your post was really insightful. I know that I w ill get through a lot of my issues with the help of my family, friends and church. I like surprises and the idea of a “mystery box”; therefore I would like to order one of the medium sized flat rate boxes for $37. Good luck and prayers for a happy, bright future.

  • Barbara Mann

    Megan Elizabeth,

    Just a note to say I wish you much success in your journey and I have enjoyed your Tuesday Tutorials very much. You have been wonderful source of inspiration for me and have always brought a smile to my face. I have also learned quite a lot from you through your Cricut and Gypsy DVDs.

    Thank you and best wishes!!

  • Carolyn. Young

    Megan, I hope you know how many lives you have touched through Above Rubies and your other creative ventures. I probably own all of your videos and spent many of my Tuesdays watching your lesson of the week. Just know that you have been an inspiration. Allow God to use you and success can’t help but follow.


  • Karen

    I would like to purchase your Pazzles Inspiration Die Cutting machine for $145 plus shipping but since I don’t know how much shipping will be what do I do? I’m a novice with PayPal so full instructions would be very helpful. :>)) Thank you.


  • Amy Rees

    Hi I am interested in the Theresa Collins Stamp Maker is it still available? I was wondering do you need any special computer programs or printers to be able to use the stamp maker?

    • Megan Elizabeth Post author

      Yes I do – You do not need any special program or specific printer – but a good quality ink printer to make your own negatives is all you need 🙂

  • Liz Lane

    Wow! What courage and commitment to make this change! Change is not easy but how wonderful that you have discerned what the Lord has for you and are taking steps to make that all a reality. Even though it can be hard and emotional to let go of “stuff” that has been a part of your life and has memories attached to it, you are going to feel SO FREE!!! We recently decided to simplify and got rid of a lot of stuff. We all feel so great about it and are so happy we simplified! You have such a dear heart and your enthusiasm for life is inspiring and endearing. From the little you have shared, you have been through so much in the last few years and yet you have pressed on! Press on sister in the Lord! I will totally miss your crafting fun tutorials but I think you have made a wise decision and I will be excited to see all that the Lord has for you in the future. Blessings on you! liz in PA

  • Shirley

    I have been with you since almost the beginning of your videos. I am happy that you are making choices to change/enrich your life, but I am sad because I feel like I am losing a friend who has shared so much of her life with all of us. Please keep us in the loop of your life from time to time.

  • Carolyn Young

    Hi Megan,
    I don’t envy the chore of mailing everything out. It has to be overwhelming! I just saw the latest video and I didn’t receive your email regarding the Imagine and the final shipping cost. It will make sense to try to sell it to someone more local instead of trying to get the machine all the way to Maryland. I certainly understand. Besides, I can use the refund and save up for the Explore. The prices are coming down, so why don’t we just cancel the sale. It was obviously not meant to be. Please write to me at my email address so we can iron out the details. Thanks for all that you do.


  • Sharill

    I just got the boxes and I LOVE THEM!! It feels like Christmas and a huge garage sale all rolled into one! I am so proud of the life you have chosen to live and to follow Christ more fully. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!
