Hi friends,
Two weeks ago I took the train to Florida to see my mother.  WOW!  The train was packed with every seat taken.  We left at 9:00 PM and got in to Deland at around 8:00 the next morning.  There usually are not many people on the train so we  have 2 seats and plenty of room.  Not this trip, we were packed like sardines with all of the seats filled both ways.  I guess the $84.00 round trip ticket has become popular.  I was additionally surprised since it was a Thursday night.  My sister and I went to Daytona Beach and scrapbooked with a group of her friends.  I am behind so had a lot to do.  I didn't accomplish as much as I would have liked to but, I did manage to get about 30 pages done or 15 double page spreads.  I am up to Fall of last year.  The trip was a nice break, I enjoyed spending time with my sis and Mom.  I just found out that I can schedule posts so I need to figure out how to do that as I am going to be gone again for a week with my daughters and 2 grand daughters.  That will be on the top of my list when I get back so beginning October I will be posting on a more regular basis.

I also will be posting my events through the end of the year the first of October and beginning in January will have a Christmas mini stamp a stack each month.  We will make 3 each of two different card designs each month and by December next year you will have a minimum of 72 cards made and ready to be mailed.   In July I will have Jingle in July and make some gift items you can have on hand for those unexpected occasions.  I hope to get my newsletter sent out and events posted prior to Thursday but if not you should be able to access them the first of October.

Enjoy your week and I hope to stamp with you soon!

Happy Labor Day!  I hope you are all having a relaxing, fun filled weekend.  I decided to tackle my craft room this weekend, ( instead of going to the lake, sigh ) which is actually a spare bedroom turned into my craft room.  Since I have such a small area it can get unorganized very quickly.  I was amazed at how much "stuff" I had crammed into this room.  I have gone through everything, organized and have 2 bags of goodies I am donating to the Senior Center.  I still have a few things left to do but wanted to show you our Two-Step Owl punch 118074.  This cute little punch is the new style and look at all of the things you can make other than owls.  This little guy is just the right size to use on a paper clip to make a bookmark. The ghost is the owl turned upside down with his feet cut off.  Add circle punched eyes and you are ready for Halloween.  We also have the Bitty Bat punch 119279, if you don't have the bat punch, it is easy to make a bat using your owl punch.  This time you will keep your ears but cut off the feet.  The wings are a circle punch cut in half.  For the under part of the wing you can cut it with your scissors or use a small circle punch and nibble the edges.  Enjoy the rest of your day. 

Hope to stamp with you soon,

The new Holiday Mini started yesterday and it is awesome!  You can check it out on my sidebar.    It has so many fabulous holiday goodies I can't decide which is my favorite.  There is a new trim die for your big shot, a spider web embossing folder, fabric, waffle paper, glimmer brads and ohh so much more! I can't decide what I want to order first. 

This month also has a special promotion.  Anyone signing up to become a demonstrator will get this really sharp craft tote which was available at this year's convention.

If you have been thinking about joining Stampin' Up! and are interested in joining my team you can e-mail me and I will call you to chat about signing up.

Have a great day 
Until we stamp again,

I have been away for a few months and missed blogging.  My computer is up and running and I am so excited about the new mini catalog and all of the possibilities it offers.  If you haven't seen it take a peek.  Stampin' Up! is now offering fabric; imagine all of the gift possibilities.  Coasters, rag purses, and great coverings for journals, just to mention a few.  There are also new embossing folders, ribbons, buttons and stamps.  Break out your wish list and be ready to add to it!  I will have new class offerings beginning the end of September. Among the classes I will be offering are: 

Square One- A class for those just beginning to stamp or for those stampers that prefer a simpler card.
(This class will be a monthly offering.)

PMS- Popcorn, Music and Chocolate-  Get away for a few hours eat snacks and visit with friends.

This will be a free open crop at which you will be able to use my sizzix, dies and stamps to scrapbook or make cards.  Bring your adhesive and consumable products and lets have fun! 

4 for Fall-  Make 3 Fall or holiday cards and one 3D item

Christmas Stamp a Stack-  you will be making 16 cards 4 each of  four designs.

Coasters and Candles- a gift class in which you will  make a set of coasters and a stamped candle to give to that special person or secret pal. 

You can earn discounts on class fees by :
bring a friend-1.00
place an order of 25.00 the night of the class-2.00

I have so many ideas my mind is on overdrive so be sure and add your name to my newsletter mailing list for all of the latest classes.

Hope to stamp with you soon!
