I'm still alive!

I have to send a very sincere apology to my Customers for my lack of postings for several months.  Since most of you are my friends, you know that my husband broke his neck and back 5 years ago and sometimes my life is consumed with just living....if you can call it living when you don't have time to stamp, go to garage sales, redo furniture and do all sorts of other crafts and repurposing!  I am home with hubby while he recovers from his 4th surgery.  I thought I would get all sorts of projects done to post either here or on my crafting blog (, but I have found it's best just to concentrate on him right now. So, my projects remain a vision in my head, my house remains unorganized, my laundry backed up.... I promise, I will be back and more consistent  in the New Year!  Don't give up on me!

It's fun to be a Demo!

One of the best things about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator (besides all the wonderful friends you make) is all the cool things you get to attend.  When I flew to Wisconsin last month to spend the weekend with three of my dearest friends, we also got to go down to Chicago to attend a special SU! event with other Members of our group.  It was so fun and I came away with the best cards and samples I have ever left an event with - in over 10 years of being a Demonstrator.   This was absolutely OUTSTANDING!  This is one of the benefits of joining my team.  You get to be part of an awesome group of very talented, sharing and caring Demonstrators.  And the group I am in are truly the cream of the crop!  You still have until October 18th to join Stampin' Up! and get the FREE Craft Tote with your starter kit!  Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity now and then later, you can take advantage of the wonderful events we have planned!

This picture isn't great, but here is a small sample of some of the ideas that were shared:

Never too old for Goofy Stuff - Punch Art

In August, I joined three of my closest friends in Wisconsin for a stamping weekend marathon!  We laughed and stamped and ate and started all over again.  There was very little sleeping involved and we had a great time!  Here is one of the darling cards we made.  It uses Top Note and Scallop dies, flower punch and the senitment is from the set "Smarty Pants."

Starting Over - A New Stampin' Year!

So, I've been extremely negligent in posting to my blog! Since I don't believe I have a following, this is a mute point! Hah!

I am very excited about SU!s new catalog year. It's absolutely fabulous. My wish list is way too long, so I better get working to justify all the new stuff I want!

This will be a quickie post for today to include the links to my website and our catalogs. Sign up for my Blog Feed. I'm going to start giving away some of my over 300 stamp sets that are retired! Leave a comment and you will be entered in for a free stamp set on my drawing date of August 31st!

My SU! Website:

Happy Stampin'!!
