Good morning good morning good morning!!! GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS?!?
No, silly – it’s not HAWWMP Day! It’s OFF TO VACAY Day!!
We’re on our way to Seattle – and looking forward to a few days of sight-seeing and trying to get the idea of moving to that area out of my head!
I fear this plan may backfire…. 😉
Next on the agenda is the cruise. Whoo-hoo! And I’ve heard tell that the folks who give us all the service that cruises are known for do appreciate a hand-stamped little thank you at the end. Stampin’ Up! has kindly paid our required gratuity (yes – being an SU! demonstrator is awesome and earning a trip is one heck of a perk…perhaps you’d like to earn a cool trip of your own?) but we can give a little extra at the end to those folks who we think go above and beyond.
Well – it turns out that SU! has ALSO come up with the perfectly perfect All Inclusive Card Kit – called…Notes of Kindness!
So, I whipped out a bunch of these babies and boy are they wonderful! I have to say – I love all our kits – but I don’t always love them enough to partake in the refill. This one is NOT one of those. I’m going to order the refill ASAP – it’s just that cool! When you buy the kit – you even get an acrylic block. All you need to add is some adhesive – I recommend Liquid Glue and/or Glue Dots. 🙂
So…the kit comes with a Basic Black Archival ink spot and you can make 20 gorgeous cards (in 4 designs) with just that. But, you know I have a penchant for doing up the inside of my cards – and my envelopes – so, I also pulled out my Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow ink pads and got busy!
All of the envelopes come with a wonderful Blushing Bride striped “liner” already inside…
but…since I already had the additional pads out..
I know – crazy pretty, right? And fun to make. The included Copper Baker’s Twine is….ridiculously wonderful! Hey, Stampin’ Up! – WE NEED THIS TWINE IN THE CATALOG!! Seriously.
So – I can’t recommend this kit enough. Get it now. Get the refill at the same time. You won’t be sorry!
Well…I’m off, folks! Stay tuned for updates from the great Pacific Northwest! 🙂 🙂 🙂
P.S. And – this is an AWESOME good time to join the team and get started on your journey towards wonderful perks and trips and discounts with Stampin’ Up! Don’t miss out on extra free INK PADS!!

Finn Fan Fix
Sunday was packing day.
Now – you should know. I’ve packed for a LOT of trips – a LOT.
I’m pretty good at it. Don’t really even have to think on it much. Heck – it’s the same stuff every time.
You’re going to Seattle/Sequim for a few days and then on an Alaskan cruise with your other half.
And then – all heck breaks loose!
No – that is NOT an episode of Hoarders.
It’s our bedroom as we attempt to resolve the whatdowewearontheexcursionsandwhatdowewearontheship question. Part of the problem is that I’ve bought clothes for my new skinny self and I sorta want to dress up. Which means that Wayne sorta HAS to dress up! Which means – we gotta find/clean/try on dress-y-er-up clothes for him
This is not a trivial task.
The struggle is real.
When the stress began to bubble over, we took a little break and took the Man off to camp. I actually needed to get that out of the way so I could quit worrying about it.
You can see that Finn was….devastated to be going to camp. He HATES it there. 😉
Uhm…no. Not at all true.
He went off to play with nary a backward glance…
Have a good time, Finny Bo-Binny! Love you more than chocolate.
See you in August!
