Good morning from sunny (again) and warm (yes, again!) California! I think I could get used to this weather – it was chilly when I left Atlanta last week and is now downright ridiculous there. Hello?!?! If we’d wanted that kind of weather, we’d have moved to Boston. Or Minnesota! That’s not how it’s supposed to be in Georgia. Y’all take just a moment to pity my hubby – who hates hates HATES cold weather! 🙁 My 4-footed yaks (not really, but the horses get so hairy in the winter they could BE yaks!) are not bothered a bit. In fact, the girls are happy campers in that kind of weather! Pretty sure she took a little dip right after I snapped this picture when we had this weather LAST year. Hey! Wassup with this!?!?
I’d love to share a card with you today, but….my stash is still wending its way to me! It should arrive day-after-tomorrow. So, hopefully on Tuesday, I’ll be able to share a card when I bring you the new weekly deals! What I wanted to bring you today is news about the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Book-a-Thon.
If you’ve been sitting on the fence about holding a workshop, now just might be the time to climb down! Sale-A-Bration ends on 31 Mar, and SU is holding Book-A-Thon. Sign up to be a workshop hostess (sign up between Feb 20 and Feb 28, and hold the workshop in March 2015) and you’ll get a FREE additional gift from me (that’s over-and-above the usual free gift I give my customers AND all the FREE items you can receive as a hostess!). You can hold your workshop from the comfort of your home – and you don’t even have to clean house – always a decision-making factor for me! Contact me me right away (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested in this easy-peasy way to score all the Stampin’ Up Hostess benefits – AND take advantage of the final month of Sale-A-Bration!
Interested – but not entirely sure what all the Hostess Benefits really are? Take a look at the possibilities:
Please take note of that far right column. Sale-A-Bration goodness! (Note: the computer-word-editor does not recognize “Bration” as a word, so it keeps changing it to “Oration”. I’ve been trying to catch it every time, but if I miss one – please read what I MEANT, not what it WRITES!)
So – what could that all mean to you? Well, let’s look at a couple of examples:
Let’s say that you invite just 4 people to join your catalog workshop. Each of you buys $50 in product – from any source (Annual Catalog , online only items, Occasions Catalog and even the Clearance Rack). That makes your workshop total $250. You and each of your friends get one Sale-A-Bration item FREE! And YOU, as the hostess, also get $40 in hostess dollars, PLUS, since it’s during Sale-A-Bration, you’ll get an EXTRA $25 more in hostess dollars. That’s $65 of merchandise from anywhere in the SU product lines (any active catalog, Clearance Rack, Paper Pumpkin subscriptions – ANYthing!) free. Zero. Zilch. Nada! Plus the additional free gift from me for holding your workshop in March.
Add 3 more folks to your invite list (7 plus you as the hostess), and you could easily reach $400 in workshop orders. That bumps your total hostess dollars to $90 AND adds the chance to purchase a product for 1/2 price. And it just keeps going up from there. If you had just 9 friends, family or co-workers join you in your catalog workshop and y’all spend the same amount as in the first examples, this time reaching a workshop total of $500….you’d be looking at your one free SAB, TWO 1/2-price items and a whopping $105 of shopping spree mad money to spend on whatever you want! Yikes! 🙂
Guess what? You can do all of this with folks you know who don’t even live where you do! Or where I do! Or where I AM right now! Ah – the power and joy of internet and UPS!
Free SU product. No house cleaning. What’s not to like?
Speaking of weekly deals – I just realized that I never updated the site for the current deals. 🙁 See them below – and sorry for not giving you a lot of time to make up your mind. The deal on the 2014-2016 In-Color Backgrounds DSP is awesome!
Reminder – Blog Hop this Thursday! Birthday projects for your enjoyment and a little sugar-free blog candy. Hope you’ll join us!
FEBRUARY 1 – 28 HOSTESS CODE: RKBPBNYM Use this hostess code when you order and receive a free gift from me! But, if your order is over $150, please do not use this code (you’ll miss out on your own Stampin’ Rewards/Hostess $$ if you use it) but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift for February is your choice of any item valued up to $4.95 in either the 2014-15 Annual Catalog or the 2015 Occasions Catalog!
