I love Tuesday! Especially since I joined the Stampin’ Up! family. On Tuesday, we get a brand new batch of Weekly Deals – and I love to see what’s going to be available.
I don’t have a card recipe for you today – this will be another post with some updates from SU. But – I did do a fun little project this week, that I just wanted to share with you. No recipes, just a picture! If anyone wants some detail, drop me a comment! These are for the ladies who tidy my room up for me every day. I like to leave my tip for them – with one of these attached to it. I’ve made two batches now – the first one (on the left) used inexpensive manila tags that I got from Michaels. The second batch, I went all-Stampin’ Up! – all the time! I’d been scribbling a quick note on one of the hotel note pads. With a smiley face. Wow. Really “special”. Not-so-much. I decided I was really not living up to my SU “reputation”, so….these were born! And you know what? I get a note back many days, with God Bless You written on it – and a smiley face! Sometimes people don’t take the tag. Sometimes they leave the little paper clip. And – LOL – sometimes the tip, the tag and the clip are all gone, and they’ve forgotten to leave me any coffee!! 🙂 But, I love these little tags, and I’ll keep giving them each day. I like to think they’ve brought a smile to someone! See what you think.
Sale-A-Bration is headed into its last month for 2015. Don’t let these exclusive products and the chance for $25 extra in Hostess Dollars pass you by – you can do a workshop via catalog/internet! And, you earn a free item for every $50 that you purchase. Click here to read all about it. a reminder, here’s the Hostess Benefits Chart for Sale-A-Bration:
I do have some bad news about our Blendabilities line. You’ve been reading that the Blendies have been on ordering hold, due to quality issues in manufacturing. Due to the nature of the defect, Stampin’ Up! has concluded that difficulties, dissatisfaction, and product returns will only become more widespread. The manufacturer is unable to correct the problem in a manner the company is certain would meet our high quality standards and provide us with a stable, long-term solution. Therefore, after a great deal of deliberation and in order to prevent further disappointment, the Blendabilities product line has been discontinued. If you have Blendabilities that you feel are defective, please let me know and I’ll guide you through what to do next. Hopefully SU will find a new source for alcohol markers – heck, I was just getting good at coloring with them!
Check out the new Weekly Deals (looks like some good ones – I’ve had my eye on that Wildflower Meadow background stamp and TIEF for a while now!). And the updated backorder list (yea, that one’s a bit of a downer, sorry). And don’t forget to use the March Hostess code when you order!

Very cute tags Mary! Love that the housekeepers are keeping the tag and leaving the cash. Too funny! 🙂
Oh no – they ALWAYS take the cash! It’s the little tiny paper clip they sometimes leave behind! 😉
This is a wonderfully kind idea! For some folks who likely don’t see much kindness day-to-day. And they are so pretty! I can imagine other ideas for them…like that special lunch box hug for kiddo to find at lunch time…using some of the cute SU kid-friendly products.
I’m getting to where I really look forward to the little notes they leave me in return. I can tell they’re enjoying them! The SU-only ones are cut with the Chalk Talk framelits die set out of Very Vanilla card stock. And you’re right – they would be great lunch box/bag, hubby/wife briefcase notes…. Thanks, Mom! 🙂
