New Stuff Happening Daily.....Christmas is Almost Upon Us!!

December 19th already and WHERE did the time go? We've been having a blast this holiday season looking at holiday lights, having baking parties, attending get togethers, you know...holiday stuff! Participated in a Secret Sister Santa group that was all sorts of fun and got some really cute goodies to boot!  Nothing like a Secret Sister Santa group to get your creative juices flowing. So how is it that only six days before Christmas I'm still ordering stuff from Amazon? You gue… Read more

Wow! Free shipping for the second day this year!!!

I am so excited to announce that Stampin' Up has so very generously given us not ONE, but TWO free shipping days this year. You have to understand, this NEVER happens. In this day of high shipping costs, it is one thing I hear about most often even though Stampin Up is so great about getting their stuff out to us in a timely manner and packaged up so well. Who doesn't want FREE SHIPPING?? Well, today's your day. Just grab that wish list (we all have one!) and start at the … Read more

December to Remember!!

This December is chock-full of major perks offered by Stampin' UP! We have a new catalog approaching on January 4, 2018 along with our yearly SAB (Sale-A-Bration) celebration. This is a fantastic time to be a customer or a new demonstrator. New demonstrators who JOIN MY TEAM this month have the option of getting ALL their goodies (or just part of them) out of the new Occasions catalog. Not only that but you can get a head start on the new items available from our SAB brochure. As … Read more

Just got home from OnStage!!

Wow, what a week in Salt Lake City!!!  I've been to ONE OnStage local before (last April) but that was nothing like this week. The OnStage "live" version is such an amped up version of OnStage it is crazy. 2300 Stampin' Up demonstrators from all over the US, New Zealand, Canada, UK, Australia, and the South Pacific (as well as France and the Netherlands) were all there. You've NEVER seen this kind of stamping party before!! We kicked off our crazy week with a &qu… Read more

October 2 Already!

It is officially the FALL season and I'm thrilled!! Hope you all have been doing great, we are fine here. Just super busy and so much going on. Not only is it Fall, but the grandkids have gone back to school with all the flurry of new activities and we are getting ready for a couple of trips; one in October and one in November. Then of course, the HOLIDAYS! My husband and I have started a new journey to health so we can get to feeling better and shed some of the pounds (hopefully … Read more

Happy Monday!

Had a great (if busy) weekend and somehow those just keep blending together, don't they? It is amazing how much you can get done in a two-day period if you time it just right! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend too, and got some well-needed downtime. If you have a regular Monday-Friday type of job, the weekend is something to look forward to just for the R & R. Some of us don't hold with too much of that first R, though!! :) Since our son is out of town for a few days … Read more

September has been a Blur so far!!!

Hey everyone!! Has September been rushing past for you, too?? So much going on, a lot of you have kids going back to school or if you are college age YOU are going back to school. There have been weather issues it seems in every corner of the globe with tons of hurricanes in the US causing massive destruction, 8.1 earthquakes in Mexico, and other catastrophic news all over the place. The point is, if you tell me you haven't had a lot of time for crafting, I could believe it! As fo… Read more

The Craft Fair was a Success!!

We are finally recovered from our Craft Fair this past Saturday and boy, was it a ToN of FuN! This was the Lomita Railroad Museum's 30'th craft fair so they know what they are doing for sure. There were lots of vendors and even more fair customers strolling around checking out all the cool stuff for sale. We were the ONLY handmade card vendor there, I'm happy to report! One other lady was there who made handmade stationary but she carved out blocks from soap and used those… Read more

The Fancy Stamper is Reaching a Milestone!

Good morning, everyone, and Happy Friday! Yes, we are reaching a milestone. Each Stampin' Up! independent demonstrator I know usually sets up certain goals for themselves such as recruiting goals, sales goals, and so forth. We are like so many other small teams getting started where it can be difficult at times and carving out a loyal following might be tough. Just so you know, all of YOU are so appreciated by me! The fact that you follow us when you have lots of other teams you c… Read more

Sunday is Upon Us!

And on this super special Sunday I give to you one of the beautiful (yet simple) new designs from our upcoming Holiday catalog!! This is from the set "Painted Autumn" and the stamp set depicts a two-step stamp of sunflowers and leaves, along with a few little extras and that cute little sentiment you see there. The catalog is available NOW if you'd like one. Simply leave me a comment and your mailing address and I'll be happy to send one right out to you. Or you can… Read more

Terrific Tuesday!!

Good morning, Everyone! I hope you are as ready for the day as I am. Sure I am getting a somewhat late start but it doesn't matter, I am STARTING. As long as we all keep moving forward we are doing great, right?? So many new things happening and I've been a bit tied up with them. So far I've launched a new Facebook group page for demonstrators only and made my current group page into a customer and non-demo only page. This is great for so many reasons. As demonstrators we … Read more

The last days of July are upon us!

Who knew that this month would fly by so quickly? I always think of summer as going by so slowly but here it is, July 29 already! In no time at all the kids will be back in school, all semblance of summer vacations will be over, and the Fall season will be imminent! Who loves Fall as much as I do? The colors, the sentiments, the holidays, the family get togethers? So much going on. Harvest festivals, craft fairs, pumpkin patches! It must be my favorite time of year. Except for Christm… Read more

The Weekend Flew By!!! How about Yours?

It's amazing how quickly the days fly by when you are keeping super busy, right?? Actually, if I'm being completely honest, the whole month of July has been a blur of activity. Here it is, super late Sunday night (more like Monday early morning!) and I can hardly believe that it is now July 24!! Only one more week left to this month, and if feels like we just had the Fourth of July! Tomorrow my cute July "leader" swap cards get put in the mail (priority) so that they… Read more

The Weekend is Coming!

What will you do with your weekend? Is it your typical two days off work? Or do you have a different type of work schedule. Enquiring minds want to know! For me, I form my own work schedule now except for when I work, it doesn't feel a bit like work. Anyone who loves creative paper crafting or stamping or making handmade cards knows what I'm talking about. In fact, anyone who ever loved what they do for a living understands all too well. In a way, this is much better for you h… Read more

Happy Thursday, everyone!!!

Well, I've finally somewhat recovered from my very first craft show in about 30 years and it was fantastic!! The church people who put on the fair were awesome people and they worked hard to make the event a success. This was only their third year doing it and their attendance was up. They had so much for the community it was amazing that more people didn't show up. First of all, they had TWO separate food vendors offering free food to everyone. Admission was free, and the two… Read more

Craft Fair Goodies!!

I love crafting anyway and paper crafting seems to be my "go to" crafting adventure. When I discovered all the super cool stuff you can make using Stampin' Up designer series paper and other embellishments from Stampin' Up I was so thrilled. Here are a few things I've been working hard on to get ready for the upcoming show.  I made these using my cute stamp set "Cookie Cutter Christmas" and some designer paper and washi tape I had. I see that it looks a… Read more
