Happy Monday, Everyone!

Today is Martin Luther King day, and the local schools are observing the holiday by taking a day off. I get the added pleasure of having my granddaughter spend the day with me so YAY!!

Things are heating up here, well not literally. It is still chilly by California standards and probably will be 60 today as the high. The  news says another storm is coming and will be here by Thursday which is awesome because that means that the local mountains will get another snow storm. We are headed there this Friday, we booked a 3 bedroom cabin for a SNOW WEEKEND!! Kiera is so excited to go to the snow again, after the New York trip she remembers is so well. Now all she wants to do is play in snow!!  Lucky for her, the forecast is for a LOT of snow, in fact we need our chains to get up the hill!

Supposed to be choosing the winner for my last giveaway this morning but a few of my friends were asking if I could extend by a day or so and that's what I'm going to do. I appreciate the people who signed up early and will give you all an extra entry for doing so but I feel bad that some who want to participate haven't yet. I will let you guys know when I choose the winner, in the meantime just keep checking back!

I'm still working on my first class. I was designing the class around Dragonfly Dreams but the problem is cost. I am only going to charge the retail value of the actual items you will be using (plus shipping to you), so in the case of Dragonfly Dreams the stamp set is $21 and there is the ink cost. Because the dragonfly is so detailed, there is more than one color. The class itself would be about $50 but the upside is that you are keeping your stamp set and any ink that comes with it and also during this time you will be getting one FREE item of your choice from the Sale-A-Bration catalog! That is a nice bonus, I think! All the paper and embellishments we use in the class is my gift to you. Since as a demonstrator we do not do "cash and carry" I must wait until we close the class and everyone has signed up before placing the order itself. When it arrives to me I will cut and package the paper and send it off to you guys!

If this interests you, please let me know. I cannot do classes for only one or two members....so if interest is not that great right now it is okay with me. I will simply wait till we have more followers and there is a bigger interest. I will keep designing cards and making videos, though! :)

Last few days to take advantage of the current host code it is:


When you go to my shopping page (click this link to go there) after you place your order you will see the summary of your shopping cart and at the lower left hand corner there is a spot to place a host code. Just put in those letters and press enter and it should tell you it was "applied to ..." If you do that when I send your welcome packet I will include a gift! That's all you have to do. Of course, if your order comes to 150 or more you will not use my host code and instead will earn your own Stampin' Up! rewards which amounts to 10% of your order. That is a wonderful perk, isn't it??

Here's the great thing: should you choose to have your OWN workshop, you could earn all the hostess rewards yourself! All you have to do is contact me and I will send you a few catalogs and get you all set up. I can go over what you need to do at that time. It is pretty simple for the hostess and your guests will all be ordering directly from my shopping page using your host code, what could be easier!??

Remember, during the Sale-A-Bration promotion the hostess gets an additional $25 worth of free product (anything you choose) for party sales of $250 or more. This is the PERFECT time to have that catalog or workshop  you were thinking about!!  Valentine's day is just around the corner and there are several NEW and adorable "love themed" stamp sets!

Ok, everyone, have a fantastic Monday and a good rest of the week!



  1. i want to do the class. but i wont need the stamp set since in getting it SOON!! it shipped. anyway. let me know!! i would like all the rest of the stuff it entails. 😘

  2. I sure will, Ing! I got an email saying your stuff will be here tomorrow, I already have an envelope ready for you with some die cut things in it and stitched shapes! I have to figure out how to get the class stuff to the members because I don't think anyone has the Big Shot yet. This class would use die cutting so my first class may be one without die cutting just so it can be simpler for the people taking it. We'll see. I'm going to draw the winner for the stamp set at 8 pm. I also posted a link in Temecula Talk it is a local community forum on Facebook they have "Monday Merchants" once a week (monday lol) and encourage local merchants to offer giveaways. So I did...so far a lot of entries!! YAY!
