Happy New Year!!!!

It's been a year full of memories, new friendships, a new grandchild, stampin' trips/events and much more. I'm thankful for all of my Stampin' Up! customers for what they mean and have done for my business. I truly love what I do and it's easy when I have customers like you. :)
I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

May you all have a healthy and wonderful New Year!

I'll be working diligently on swaps tomorrow and over the weekend for Orlando next week. I cannot wait to bring samples back to show everyone. I'm going to post pics of just a few of our hand-stamped Christmas cards that we received this year from some of you. I probably won't post them all for lack of time! They were ALL beautiful!!!

Don't forget to put aside some time for yourselves this year and Stamp!!!!

Stampin' Hugs,

Sorry for not posting much sooner. :( It's been a very busy holiday season between shopping, working, holding clubs, and preparing for our family get-together for Christmas Eve.

After Christmas, I'll be focusing on getting ready for my trip to Orlando, Florida, for Stampin' Up! Leadership where I'll be attending classes, meeting many more demonstrators and having lots and lots of fun. I've joined swaps so you all know what that means!!! Yup! More samples and ideas that I'll be bringing back! It's a great time to book that workshop that you've been thinking about holding. I'll tell you what. Help me get my calendar booked for January, February and March and you'll get an extra special gift from me. Contact me before January 6 by e-mail or phone so that when I go, I'll have you in mind for planning that special gift AND for what we'll be doing!

Keep in mind that the new catalog will be unveiled while I'm there and they will be delivered shortly after I return from Orlando. :) Woohoo!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Stamper's Showcase card, done by another demonstrator, Brenda Keenan. I like the look and the simplicity of this card.

Today we finally put our Christmas tree up and decorated inside. We are so behind this year compared to year's past. Yesterday Scout and Pace spent the day with us while Erin took Trig and shopped. Scout and Pace were so much fun and we stamped and played with a tattoo kit. Oh, and Pace couldn't quite seem to keep his fingers out of the Brocade Blue ink pad. lol I guess I really didn't need to tell Erin when she got here that we stamped because it was quite obvious especially when Scout had an area of Elegant Eggplant on her forehead that looked like a bruise. lol

For all of you who love, Lovely As A Tree! It is still in the catalog. This is another card that was on Stampers Showcase, done by Nancy Littrell. This actually is very similar to the Christmas card I did last year. Definitely a classic stamp set and if you don't already have it, you might want to think about it before it does retire.

Thanks for stoppin' by. Have a great week!

Have you ever checked....

....out Shelli Gardner's personal blog? SoShelli! She is the cofounder and CEO of Stampin' Up! She is truly a down-to-earth, genuine, giving, caring person. She is approachable at Events that you attend as a demonstrator. She is all about putting your family first. Just read some of her entries. You'll love her like sooooo many others do.

Club last night was fun. We ate, stamped, laughed and had lots of fun like we knew we would. lol I didn't get to bed until about 11:00 by the time I got organized here and figured out what I was wearing for work. Believe it or not, I was awake by 4:30 this morning and out of bed without my alarm clock! lol How does that happen?! Must be the hormone thing going on again. lol

Next week, I have another club going on. Hey, we have to come up with some names for these clubs. It will be easier to keep track of them. lol Thanks for stopping by. I have been working on my Christmas cards. It's been assembly-like fashion so I haven't completed any yet. lol The finished product will be done soon. More pics will soon be posted of latest cards, etc, so stay tuned. :)

Aren't these cool cards? Fun and easy, using "I Wish" Scrappin' Kits. The sky is the limit and you can use these kits for cards or scrapbook pages.

Good job Kim! Kim used the Big Shot for this card along with Mellow Moss cardstock and Bravo Burgundy cardstock. What a nice color combination!

This is a recipe box, a Pop-Tart box covered with designer series paper and embellished with chipboard and Pretties Kit. Although it looks like eyelets on the box, you are seeing rhinestone brads. The picture doesn't do this justice. It was quick and easy to do this box and there are tabs on separaters.

Don't forget Gift Certificates!! Contact me.

Thanks for stopping by. Off to lala land for me!
