Sunday is the last day...

Sunday, August 10th is the last day for the 2008 Spring/Summer catalog. Starting August 11th we will have a new catalog with lots of new sets, project ideas and new technique instructions. The book is beautiful and I can't wait to share it with all of you. Don't forget I am having an open house on August 16th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Please let me know if you will be attending so I can prep enough supplies for our project and also send you directions. eMail me at

Out with the old...

Last month we got the retiring stamp list. It is always sad to see some of the sets go. However, last week we received the new catalog. This is very exciting. So as I clean out space in my craft room for the new treasures I will buy I think about how this applies to my everyday life.
Wouldn't it be great if we all had a room just filled with clothes? This is not a reality for most of us. So, hang on to those few special items (stamp sets, clothes etc.) but make space to allow new things into your life. Otherwise, you might miss out on your next favorite!

Life in a state of constant complaints

I tend to be a very critical person. However, lately I have been taking on a new attitude. I no longer want to live my life in a state of constant complaints. I want to take things as they come. While it saddens me to say - it isn't all about ME! I feel as though people have the choice to be happy or not. Today I choose to be happy - and not complain. How about you?

Stampin Up Conference - Celebrate 2008

I and the other 6000 demonstrators who went are now back from Convention and a great time was had by all. Utah is a great city if you can get past the 100 degree dry days. Stampin Up is now 20 years old. Woo Hoo!!!!

We got to tour the Stampin Up corporate offices and I have to say that is one of the most lovely office/manufacturing facilities I have ever visited. It is clear just by the environment how much they care for their employees.

Demonstrators got an advance copy of the 2008 Fall/Winter Idea Book and I have already started making my wish list. By the end of the convention my wish list grew shorter as I boarded the plane to come home with 5 new stamp sets, a wheel and a roll of our new Chocolate Chip double stiched ribbon!!!!

Besides the new decor elements in new colors we also got to see the Sizzix Big Shot!!! Stampin Up has partnered with Sizzix and will now be selling the machine along with Stampin Up Exclusive Die cuts and stencils. This new product will be available to you in September.

My first blog!

Okay so I work in IT and I love to stamp. So technical and creativity should just come naturally to me. However, not so sure this is true. Does anyone really want to read what is going on with me? So I start this blog, in hopes of it taking off. Lets see what happens!
