I took 6 months off from this blog to cncentrate on my demonstrator website through Stampin' Up!  While it was wonderful to have and I did have a good number of online orders through the site, I could not justify the amount per month to keep it running.  So I am back to the blog and may be tweeking it a bit. 

Sale-a-Bration is th ecurrent promotion.  Its an annual sale where customers order $50 and receive a free item...and that goes for every $50!!  Hostesses even earn freebies by holding a workshop in their home during this time :)  Its a fun way to keep busy during the winter months with friends while having fun!

Stampin' Up! is now coming out with a monthly kit program.  Go to and check it out.  A kit is ordered and sent right to your door including shipping around $20!  How great is even comes with insturctions and project ideas.

I would love to hold a workshop with you in your home, and now is w great time to do so.  Contact me for more info and to set your date!

Happy Holidays!

Just posting a Happy Holiday to you all!!  Hope the Christmas weekend went by with lots of love, family, food, and memories.  And hoping the New Year brings new memories to cherish. 

We had a wonderful time at all of our gatherings.  Many many boxes and bags of toys, clothes, chocolate, and other items filled our livingroom.  This week we will be trying to find a place for all the new stuff we are thankful for from loved ones....and then to prepare for the NEW YEAR!!

Last workshop of the year!

Tonight I am demonstrating my last workshop of the year.  This has been a wonderful year for me as a demonstrator.  I started out being a hobby demo looking to build a business.  I have a wonderful group of ladies who have held workshops, joined clubs and enjoyed my events.  I have also met new faces and prospects for future events and workshops.  I am excited to help out the local library hold events for the community in the upcoming year. 

I have began filling up dates for the first quarter of 2012....if anyone is interested, please contact me to set up your workshop.  The next mini, All Occassions 2012, will be available Jan. 4 and run through April 30.  During that mini catalog period, Stampin' Up! will be running their yearly event Sale-a-Bration!! This is an exciting opportunity for all of us!! Hostesses earn even more rewards, customers can earn a free stamp set, and those looking to sign up as a demo themselves have an amazing opportunity to do so....meaning discounts and freebies :)

With said calendar ready and available, I am looking for ideas from you, my customers and followers.  I want to know what it is that you love about card making, scrap booking, stamping, or paper crafting.  What would you like me to demonstrate in the new year??  If you have feedback, please let me know and I will create an event for a demonstration or just to share an evening out with fellow crafters.

I am also interested in trade shows/ craft shows, so anyone knowing of any events looking for vendors, please relay my info to them and vice versa. 

I am looking forward to hearing from you.  I also hope you all have a wonderful Holiday Season and a perfect start to the New Year 2012.

December is just a few hours away...

Excitement is setting in for the next round of Holidays!! 

Santa sent me a note saying that his elves have finished making all the wonderful gifts for James and Cora!! 

Today I will be setting up our 25 Day of Christmas Countdown using a new SU stamp set and die cuts!!  I have little activities to place behind each day that the kids can do with each other, with me, or as a family....leading up th Christmas Eve, which was always my favorite night, where the kids get to open one gift from Mom and Dad...usually PJ's :P  Other ideas listed are board games, baking cookies, and wrapping presents.

We have also started our decorating....Hubby put Christmas lights out front this year!!  Can't wait for it to get dark to see what a wonderful job he did...and of course take a photo!

By the weekend, the tree will be up and the kids will be decorating it...I am excited to be able to go through my grandparents ornaments from the tree I remember as a kid.  They use a small one each year now and have many old ornaments to get rid of.  I will be going through the box with my sisters and splitting it all up.

This year I had to buy Cora a stocking :) So I bought James a matching one!!  She had a small First Christmas one last year and needed a bigger one this year :)

Photos will be posted as we make progress with decorating and preparing for the Holidays....Stay tuned :P
