PS If you join Stampin Up, you can go to convention next year if you like.  I will be posting my trip later this week.

Convention, Here I Come!

At this point I don’t have cards to share with you.  Convention is on its way.  Only 8 days until I have to be at the airport for a 6 am flight.  Groan, I have to be up at the butt crack of dawn to get there.  Oh who am I kidding.  I will be like a little kid on Christmas Eve; I’ll never fall asleep.

There is so much to do. I do have my card swaps done but that’s about it. I finalized plans for my daughter, dog, two cats (one who needs daily medicine), and a fish.  Yep, I have a fish sitter.  Ok, really just someone to come over and feed the fish. Now, the fun begins: PACKING.  First will be my daughter, then the dog, then me.  Or maybe it will be me, my daughter and then the dog….

On another personal note.  We are moving again.  Almost a year to the day.  Did I mention my hubby is away for 20 weeks of training at this new job???  Did I say this is going to keep me extremely busy?  The only good part (yes, there is a good part) is we are moving back to our house that we own.  This is the first time our house has been empty since 2000.  We rented our house before we bought it.  It still has 1970’s Olive Green rugs.  It won’t by the time we move back. Most of the floors will be refinished before we move back and most of the rooms will get fresh paint too.  Guess who is getting to do all this work on the weekends??? Oh that’s right, it’s ME.

I know it sounds like a lot of whining, but it isn’t really.  It just means I am busy the rest of the summer.  Ten hour work days during the week and then traveling to work 10 hour days on the weekends.  Driving a giant moving truck a few days before school starts in September. In the long run it will be worth it.  My husband will come home to a house decorated the way I have always wanted.

Until the move is complete, I won’t be having any stamp classes.  Clubs will continue as scheduled. Once I have the house straightened out a little; I will be having a MASSIVE BUY ONE GET ONE FREE SALE.  I will keep you  informed as it gets closer.  I will let you know it does involve me selling MANY retired stamps (after 10 years of stamping and two moves in one year-I am cleaning out)  For every dollar spent on retired products, you will receive  the same amount of product from the current catalogs.  Again, I will have more details towards the end of August or beginning of September.

Ok, enough about my personal life….Do you want to be able to see all the cool stuff that will be going on at convention?  Like me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter to see what cool things Stampin’ Up has planned for us.  I won’t have my laptop but I will have my smartphone.

Join me next time for inky fingers and simple pleasures.

NA_25Year_Best_of_Stamps_flyers_best_of_SHELLI_NA copy

This is July 1, so there is a new Best of 25 Years Stamp set.  This month it features the Best of Shelli. Who better to pick a “Best of” stamp set than the person who helped start Stampin’ Up! out of her garage 25 years ago? Shelli Gardner, our CEO and Cofounder picked her favorite stamp images from the past 25 years and helped combine them into a single set just for you! Even better, this set includes a never-before-seen flourish image, and the flower image coordinates perfectly with the 3/4” Circle Punch (item 119873).

On a personal note.  Sixteen more days until Convention in Salt Lake City.  I have two swaps completed.  I have to finish number 3 today. Then I need to pack since I am going away for the Holiday weekend.  Oh my, there are not enough hours in a day to get all this stuff done.  I also have the privilege of ordering from the holiday catalog today. One of the benefits of being a demonstrator.  Join my team and you can pre-order items as well.
