Today I am thankful for a great group of customers and demonstrators to stamp with.  Paper crafting is my hobby and sharing it is my passion.

thanks stamping

December 1st is a special day.  It's the first day of their December sale, the first day demonstrators can order from the new catalogs and the first day of the month filled with reflection and planning for next year.  Let's tackle each of these together!



First – Stampin' Up! has an awesome sale going on right now.  They also announced all the retiring products from the Holiday Catalog.  You will only be able to get these items for a limited time.  Stamps will be available through December 20.  Accessories will be available for as long as Stampin' Up! has supplies – if there is something besides stamps that you want from the Holiday Catalog order soon!

To help you with this promotion you can click over to this page and see all the information.  I have also linked to the Stampin' Up! files that will be updated with inventory information at 4PM (MT) each day.

Next – let's talk about the gorgeous new catalog!  I'm so excited to play with all my new products when I get back from Phoenix.  Did I mention I'm flying there today to visit my nephew, his wife and their adorable girls?  They are getting some adult time for a couple of days and I'm going to fly back in time as I care for a five and two year old.  I'll let you know how that goes…

If you've been stamping with me for awhile you know Sale-a-Bration starts in January and is the BEST sale of the year.  I'm very pleased with all the products you'll get to pick from during this promotion.  I will be playing with them on Tuesday when I'm back and start posting later in the week.


TRY IT ON!  Did you know that you too can get products from the Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs right now?!?!  If you purchase the Stampin' Up! Starter Kit for just $99 you can add any items an active demonstrator is eligible to order.  You get to pick up to $125 in product and pay just $99 plus tax – shipping is free!  If you'd like more details I'd love to fill you in – contact me and we will make it happen:)

Now that we are into our second year as empty nesters I feel like I have a handle on our schedule – or lack thereof.  It took quite awhile to first get over the sadness of having them gone off to college and to find my groove again.  I'm happy to say that I'm here so leave a comment if you have any ideas you'd like to share.  I know some of you have asked for the classes I host in my home to be available online.  Some of you have asked if I'm going to have events in my home again.  The answer right now is that I'm considering all of it and I will have an answer for you on the 10th.  That seems like a nice round date and I always work better with a deadline.

Be sure we are connected on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest as these are the social media outlets that I use the most.  You may find some new project pictures or comments that you don't get here.  As always, make sure we are connected via email (use this link) because I can guarantee I share things with my email subscribers that I don't share anywhere else:)

Have a wonderful day and stay tuned for pictures, projects and more!
