Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas!!

Merry Merry Christmas, y’all!  I hope this finds you well and opening presents and making dinner preparations!  I’ll be deviling eggs and bringing my Prime Rib to room temperature in readiness for cooking!

No card today – just a greeting from me and Finn.

Thank you all so very much for a most wonderful year! 🙂

As you sit down to dinner today and give Thanks for the Blessing of this Day and this Season, please remember our men and women in the military.  So many of them are spending this day away from their family and friends so that we may be with ours in Peace and safety.  Say a little prayer for them, if you please.

I’ll see you tomorrow, my friends.




Use this host code when you order and receive a free gift from me! But, if your order is over $150, please don’t use this code (you’ll miss out on your own Stampin’ Rewards if you use it) but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog or the 2017 Holiday Catalog! And – you can even select one of the Host-exclusive sets! See my Rewards page for more details.

There’s Still Time – Join My Next Online Host Club!!

Sale-A-Bration is Coming and that’s a GREAT time to get Host Benefits!

Would you like to receive host benefits ? Would you like to build up your Stampin’ Up! tool chest a little at a time?  Well then – an Online Host Club might be the perfect solution for you!

My next club will start up on 3 Jan (coincidently with the arrival of the 2018 Occasions Catalog and the start of Sale-A-Bration!) and I have a few openings available.

How does it work?  Well – at a glance…

You sign up for a 6 month term and agree to:

  • Place a $25.00 minimum order each month
  • Place your order by the 20th of each month
  • Use the Host code I’ll provide in an email sent out at the beginning of each month

And what do you get in return?

  • Based on a random draw, you’ll be the “host” for one of the six months
  • In your month, you’ll be guaranteed a workshop total of $150 – meaning no less than $15 in Stampin’ Rewards for you to spend!
  • In your Host month, your order ships FREE!
  • When you place a host club order – which you’ll do each month – you’ll get DOUBLE peppermints for that order!  So – if all you did was place your $25 order for the six months, you’d end up with 12 Peppermints.  Most folks end up with all 16 (and then some) – and earn a free $40 gift!
  • At the end of the club, you’ll get to choose a free stamp set up to $20!
  • And – you get first dibs on the next Online Club!
  • FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects – and access to all the past tutorials on my  website!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term

Sound like something you’d be interested in? Let me know quick – spots are filling up fast!

2018 Occasions Catalog Shares are Now Open!

What are catalog shares, you ask?  They’re your chance to try a little bit of everything and see what you like the best from a new Stampin’ Up! catalog!  

I’ll place our Shares order first jump out of the box on 3 Jan 18 and use expedited shipping so I get it back fast!  Then I’ll get it all cut up, packaged and out the door quick as I can – hopefully during the week of 8 Jan!

We’ve got new Designer Series Papers, new ribbons and trims and all sorts of fun embellishments!  

Shares are open to anyone – including demonstrators, so…check it…

I’ve got a few options for you to pick from:  a New Designer Series Paper Share, a New Ribbons/Embellishments Share, and an I Want It All Share (this one gets a free extra bonus!!).  You can see everything included in each share type and find a handy sign-up sheet on my 2018 Occasions Catalog Shares page!

    Merry Christmas 🎄

  2. Merry Christmas to you!! 🙂

  3. Lovely Christmas photo of you and the Man. I will be taking our prime rib out as well and roasting it Paula Deen’s way. It’s always successful every year. We do our deviled eggs for New Year’s day but we will be having shrimp cocktail. Enjoy and give our best to Wayne. Christmas hugs are flying your way!

    Merry Christmas to all, from Clara and me out to Colorado! Prayers for your blessed Christmas and peaceful new year. Off to Mass with heartfelt prayers for all those who serve and have served
    our country.

    Merry Christmas, Mary. I wish you, your husband and Finn a lovely day. Enjoy your meal. I do give my thanks regularly for those brave souls who are there for us.

    Merry Christmas! Finn is so cute and your tree beautiful! I’m going to give you a wonderful Christmas present and give you another year before next year, your greeting on your tree says 2018…not 🙂
    So yeah you get another year!!! Hugs! And have a Happy New Year (2018) too!

    • LOL – it sure does! I must be wishing my life away! Thanks for the year back, Sherry! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, too! 🙂

  7. And a Very Merry Christmas to you as well. Does Finn get the ‘leftovers’, that is the prime rib scraps? Kalvin, dog across the road, showed up on my doorstep last night as the family started to arrive. I think he has figured out that when there are lots of cars there is also FOOD! He LOVES scraps, and his family has given me permission to give them to him. So, this morning when he came over (I think he comes when his peeps leave) he got a plateful of scraps and one smoked Iowa Chop bone, with some meat still on it. Cold here, got up to 14 degrees. Windy too, snow on the ground. Sunny early, then clouded up around 2. Colder from now on. By New Years, below zero. Good time to stay in and make cards. Your tree is lovely and reminds me that my 4 yr old G Granddaughter had 3 things she told Santa she wanted: A candy cane, a princess dress and a ride on Rudolph! This santa couldn’t do the Rudolph thing, but I did make her a dress that she called her ‘princess dress’ (pink corduroy with little gold dots and a fur bolero) and put candy canes in her stocking. Again, thanks for the greeting and Merry Christmas. Julie

    • He gets limited scraps – in this case he’ll get the bones off the rib- one at a time. Christmas will last a little longer for him that way! Try to meter the scraps to Kalvin – too much rich stuff can cause liver issues! And just FYI – 14…no. Not okay! 🙁 Glad you were able to make a princess dress for your granddaughter! Sounds wonderful and I know she loved it!! Merry Christmas, my friend! 🙂

  8. Have a very Merry Christmas to you and your family! =)

  9. Oh, he mostly gets bones, and doled out one at a time, one a day. There were a few peas on the plate, some carrots and the bone. Oh, yeah a couple of mandarin orange peels. He didn’t eat those!
    And, yeah, it is still 2017! Merry Christmas anyway! 🙂

    • LOL – I don’t think even Finn would eat the orange peels! The ponies would, though! Sounds like Kalvin is a lucky guy! Thanks, Julie! 🙂
