Sunday is Here!!

Happy Sunday, Everyone! I hope your weekend has been as fantastic as mine has. Yesterday was such a blast, I've almost forgotten how much fun it is to stamp and create with REAL people. In person. Not online. Not that I'm complaining (much) lol about online. Online is wonderful and I have grown to love it. But there is nothing like the feeling of camaraderie when you spend HOURS creating with other craft-loving women. My co-worker was gracious enough to invite me to join her w… Read more

Fantastic Friday!

I have sort of caught up on my stuff so that blogging is no longer viewed as a "luxury" and once more I can add it to my roster of things to do. Relatively successful trip to the post office. Finally got the last round of giveaway items mailed off along with two more catalogs and some "thinking of you" cards. The catalog thing can be a bit challenging especially when going out to new people. I had another occurrence of someone accidentally giving me the wrong addre… Read more

Thankful Thursday!

Hi it is Thursday already and my blogging has been at an all-time low this week. I'm not sick, just incredibly busy. Every since OnStage I feel like I've been playing catch up with most everything, but not in a bad way. The new stuff that Stampin' Up has let the demonstrators purchase early (yet another of the perks of being a Stampin' Up demonstrator) arrived and I've been busy as a bee making new projects and cards that I can share with you guys … Read more

Running off to the Dentist...

Good Morning Everyone!! Before I run off to the dentist I wanted to put a quick post up with the most recent cards I made. These are from the GORGEOUS new suite coming out in the June 1 catalog called, "Eastern Palace." The colors are rich, vibrant, and remind me of a beautiful peacock in all his glory. Here are just five cards I made while I was messing around with my new bundle yesterday. Yes, they let demonstrators order this 2 months EARLY....yet another perk of joining … Read more

OnStage Was a Blast!!

Hey, Everyone! I couldn't imagine an event being more fun that OnStage was, and this is coming from someone who has (in the past) competed in horse shows, cat shows, dog shows, gone to interesting trauma conventions, and all sorts of cool events. This one topped them all. Not only did we learn new techniques that we could use in our daily creative process (and teach to our students!) but we were given SO MANY gifts it was hard to believe!! Right when we arrived and checked in we r… Read more

Happy Saturday Everyone!!

After a nasty bout with a sort of awful head cold, I am on the mend and feeling more like myself than I have in about a week. This is good as today is the start of OnStage!! What is OnStage you may ask? It is the equivalent of the convention that Stampin' UP! has for its demonstrators every six months. The purpose is to spotlight new products, new techniques, networking among the demonstrators, and for the April OnStage: release of the NEW ANNUAL CATALOG. This is BIG. This catalog… Read more
