It’s coming soon…February 14th, Valentine’s Day. This is the date that people exchange candy, flowers, gifts all in the name of love. Some people call this a “Hallmark Holiday”, a holiday specifically created to promote the commercialism of giving cards and gifts. But, do you really know how Valentine’s Day got its start? Who was Valentine? And how did he get associated with love? One legend says that Valentine was a priest that married young … [Read more...] about Share the Love
I won’t be packing up my stamps to hit the road (read about that here). But that’s a good thing because then I don’t have to pick and choose what to take with me. I’m kind of bummed that I won’t be the jetsetter that I was hoping to be though. I’ll be at the back of the plane in coach with all the other people that didn’t win the lottery. In honor of the travel bug that I have, I’m sharing one of the new sets from the Occasions catalog, Going … [Read more...] about Let’s Get Away
Have you heard the news? The lottery is up to a crazy amount of money tonight. Something like $1,400,000,000. That’s a heck of a lot of zeros behind that $1,4. It’s so much money, it’s almost scary. My hubby and I are not gamblers and we are not regular lottery players. Nothing against those that are, but we’ve always felt spending our money on a sure thing (like paying for child care or food) was a better use for us. However, with the lottery … [Read more...] about If I win the lottery tonight, I will…
Last December, I released my very first Class in the Mail kit. You can read about the Class here. This is a picture of the gorgeous card from December's Class. This Class is still available and can be purchased anytime. My plan is to release a new Class in the Mail every other month, which means the next one will be released in February. February is just a couple weeks away and I have been a busy little bee working on ideas for the next … [Read more...] about Classes in the Mail
You know how it is… the clock is about to strike midnight and you promised your fairy godmother you’d leave on time. Well, this is just like that except without the big poufy dress and glass slippers. I’d probably break my neck trying to run in glass slippers, assuming that I don’t break the slipper itself and end up with a nasty cut across the bottom of my foot. Yeah, forget the uncomfortable dress and stick with plain old regular slippers. … [Read more...] about Don’t be late or you’ll turn into a pumpkin!
The Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration started yesterday!!! I love this time of year. Every time I buy something, Stampin Up lets me pick out a free goodie. Who am I kidding? I usually get at least two free goodies because I usually can't decide which item I want free so I buy enough to get two (ok, maybe three) free. So, here's how it works: spend $50 pre-tax and shipping and you get to pick out one item for free. Spend $100 pre-tax and … [Read more...] about Did you hear the news?
Exciting news - the brand new Occasions Catalog starts tomorrow and Sale-abration begins too! Yay! This is when Stampin Up gives you free goodies for every $50 increment you spend (pre-tax and shipping). Who doesn't love free stuff? And since you were already going to pick up a few items, you might as well spend $50 so you can get your free item too! Back in November, I attended a Demonstrator Event hosted by Stampin Up and received "Beautiful … [Read more...] about Beautiful Ride
So I mentioned last week that I wasn't so fond the black Holiday paper when I first saw it in the Holiday Catalog. But that I did get it out to use it and was actually very pleased with the results for my card. (Yes, I realize that Christmas has come and gone and I'm sharing yet another Christmas project. But, I wanted to show that you can reuse your great ideas again and again.) We were invited to attend a Christmas party earlier this month … [Read more...] about Black Christmas Part Two!
