Stampin’ Up! Maui 2021 Trip Day 1!

Well – we’re here!  And I need to thank y’all once again for helping Wayne and I earn this vacation!  I am so grateful to each and every one of you for the support you’ve given me in my business!! Thankyouthankyouthankyou!

When we drove to the airport this morning – we had a good omen, so I got a picture of it!

We got our usual pre-flight picture in the airplane…

And then…there was a LOT of flying – a LOT.  And some time getting pre-cleared in Denver for our arrival to Maui – part of the COVID process.  Boy – am I glad we did THAT!  We got that blue wristband…

And just skipped right thru the airport once we got to Maui!

As we began the descent into the island, I was reminded of how gorgeous flying across the Pacific can be!

And our close-in arrival was pretty spectacular, too!

Then – another good omen!

We finally got to the hotel (resort!!) and it’s just as beautiful as we’d heard!

Our room has got a view I could get SO very accustomed to seeing each and every day!  And – with the balcony door open we can listen to the waves as we go to sleep.  Heaven!

And in typical Stampin’ Up! fashion – we had pillow gifts!

Wayne and I got a quick pic as we headed down to dinner.

And the evening ended with Hawaii gracing us with a pretty iconic scene…

And then – with our body clocks absolutely totally exhausted, confused and unaware of where we were or WHEN! – we crashed!

Hope you’ve liked the pics – there’ll be more to come as we go along! 🙂





P.S.  I’ve got some openings in a Host Club starting in June!  You can get all the deets here – but the bottom line is that Host Clubs are great ways to earn Host Rewards (like the Pattern Party DSP!) without having to do the work of Hosting!  Check it out right here and then let me know you want a spot! 🙂


Use this host code when you order $50 or greater and receive a free gift (AND the Monthly Card Tutorial) from me!  If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift.  The free gift is your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 in any active Catalog!  That includes some of the Host Exclusive stamp sets!  See my Customer Rewards page for full details.

Note: Make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me and you’ll get my rewards!

You’ll also be getting a link to my ZOOM The Craftroom (an exclusive TWICE-A-WEEK online event for my customers) and the monthly Online Tutorial.   The May Tutorial features the Pansy Patch Bundle!

Finn Fan Fix 

According to our slightly obsessive spying on Finn – he’s starting to settle in.  We noticed that he slept on the concrete floor the first night – told you it was a little obsessive – so we realized he was too hot.  So – we called from the Denver airport and told them that we thought he was a little too warm in his suite (not hot by other dog standards – but warmer than he likes) and they lowered the temp and turned a fan on for him.  And that was all he needed.

Once we got in to the room for the night and checked in – we saw him crashed in typical Finn-fashion.


On his side  – back to the wall.  Probably snoring.  🙂
