Another rainy day…

I’m really missing the sunshine these days. This is day four of rain for us here on Cape Cod. And while I miss the sun, I have to say that the rain always makes me feel less guilty when I stay in my room stamping — which is on the agenda (hopefully) today. Sadly, I do have to go out into the cruddy weather a bit today as I didn’t get out yesterday and do some of the shopping I need to do (I have a hole in my favorite well-well-worn jeans!). Todays card is a bright holiday card that generally isn’t my style. When I host my card classes I do try to make a variety of styles of cards as everyone likes different things. This one actually almost got axed from the line-up as I just wasn’t that fond of it (it’s growing on me, though). It’s a good thing I kept it in though as it was a class favorite! See you never know. I used Serene Snowflakes for the stamp set (with Many Merry Messages for the greeting). I love the snowflake punch and then of course I also used the scallop trim border punch, too.

It’s beginning to FEEL like Christmas….

I cannot get the chill out of my body the last two days! It certainly feels like winter has arrived! What happened to fall??? I love the crisp, cool weather and this is not what I had in mind. Oh well, I guess I don’t really have much say in the matter. Here’s another card we did at my Holiday card class last week. It was actually adapted from a card I made for a workshop a few weeks ago. I love the new pearls we have in the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog — they just add so much to a design… and they are very inexpensive. You get 150 pearls for just $4.95. Today is going to be a quick post as I’ve got a ton of things to do on my day off. Lots of shopping errands. I’ve already been a good girl and cleaned my bathroom (which was way overdue) and finished the laundry. I’ve also got some planning and creating to do later tonight, too. I do want to let you know, though, that Stampin’ Up has added over 200 items in their clearance rack section of my demonstrator Web site. There are some fantastic

All good things must come to an end…. BUT…

Hello there friends! Happy Thursday to you… it’s nice here in the Northeast not to see any rain today! No real sun in my neck of the woods right now — but hopefully later! Now of course, many of you know that the fabulous three-month Sale-A-Bration promotion is now over — very sad — but don’t worry I’ve got other good news for you! Let me just start by saying thank you to everyone who purchased from me from January through March. I really sent March out with a bang — exceeding my best sales month by $2,000! Holy Cow. Thank you all soooo much! Now, a couple of things to share with you: I am going to be ordering some new product from the upcoming summer mini catalog this week, so be sure to book your workshops for May if you’d like to be first to order from this fabulous catalog! April workshops will be great, too — with a sneak peek at a brand new stamp set from the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog that hostesses can earn FREE and customers can purchase now! There are also four other flower stamp sets that will be available at 20
