Big News! Creative Escape SPRING Edition is open for Registration

Hello there… and happy snow day (again!) for those of you in the Northeast. The snow isn’t getting me down today, though, because I’m thinking SPRING today — as in: Cape Cod Creative Escape SPRING edition! I’ve hosted two of these events in November now and I am super excited to be offering this fun, four-day crafting escape in the SPRING this year. (Can you tell I’m excited for SPRING??) So, what is the Cape Cod Creative Escape? Well, about 50 of us take over the Four Point Sheraton in Hyannis for four days (Thursday, April 16 – Sunday, April 19) and we craft our little hearts out! You bring some crafty projects you have on your “to-do” list and have over 40 hours of uninterrupted time to work on them — whether that’s scrapbooking, card making, sewing – whatever makes you happy! Then, I provide you with five FREE Take and Makes (I’m switching up how these will operate a bit from the previous two events — that’s why they’re called Take and Makes and not Make and Takes!), lots of prizes, optional add-on classes and SIX pillow gifts. Let’s just say I like to spoil you! Plus, the

Stampin’ Up Leadership 2015!

Hello! Do you ever have one of those days when you just can’t force yourself to function? Yup. That was my day yesterday. I came home after work and I ate dinner, sat on the couch and that was the end of the story. So I apologize for not posting my Stampin’ Up Leadership photos yesterday as I had promised, but I’m back and wanted to share some of the highlights with you! I love this photo — so much fun. I must admit, Donald Duck was pretty smitten with me. He kept kissing me! 🙂 So fun. This photo was taken at the Manager’s Reception held on the first night of Leadership. Stampin’ Up rented out a small section of Hollywood Studios for manager’s and above. For the third year in a row I’ve been able to go to this awesome event! They had two roller coasters open for us (I’m a wimp and didn’t ride either of them!) and there was also a plethora of yummy desserts for us to enjoy. Here me and my buddy Candy were enjoying our Mickey Mouse cake pops! Manager’s Reception is always a highlight, but there were so many other fun moments

Have you Sale-A-Brated Yet?

  Howdy there! So if you’re in the Northeast with me have you dug yourself out of a snow bank yet? Geesh… I was lucky enough to miss the first big storm last week (I was in sunny Florida!), but I am already done with winter. And I really shouldn’t complain as we had been pretty unscathed up until the big blizzard. Well, when Mother Nature decided to introduce winter — she really did it with a powerful one, two, huh? Anyway, let’s talk about something more fun, okay? How about this adorable little card I  made using the new Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper called “Best Year Ever” and the Simply Wonderful stamp set (also an exclusive Sale-A-Bration pick). One of my favorite parts of this card is the cute little bow — did you know that is a new handheld punch for the new Occasions catalog? Yup. Super fun and easy! What did you say? You don’t know what Sale-A-Bration is? It’s only the biggest celebration of the year! Check out the brochure of super cute products you can earn for free here. Three ways to partake in the Sale-A-Bration fun: 1. Spend $50 and pick anything out of
