Well – we did it!  Got to Friday again!  Guess where I’ll be NEXT Friday!?  Yep – on my way down to Charlotte for OnStage!  I am so excited – both for the event AND to see all my friends in my team – and the folks I’ve met in the almost 5 years I’ve been in Stampin’ Up!  AND – I’m super excited to be able to share sneak peeks of the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog goodies!! Whoo-hoo!!

(Gotta practice my whoo-hoo-ing, you know!)

So – I recently added a beautiful stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog called His Grace to my stash.  And I decided it was time for an Easter card – so…that’s what I did.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Be Mine Valentine Paper Pumpkin and…some Blog Candy!

Mornin’, y’all!  By the time you get this, I’ll be at the airport.  Hopefully on the INSIDE of security and sitting working on the computer at the gate.  They’re telling folks to be 3 hours early – both in Atlanta AND Baltimore.  So… that’s fun!  😉  Hopefully they’re just being Nervous Nellie’s.  Debbie Downers.  Worried Wanda’s.  Fashed Frieda’s!

Keep your fingers crossed for me!

So today – I wanted to share a quick sneak peek at the January Paper Pumpkin kit!  It’s super cute and made 24 fun little treat holders in two designs.  It coordinates perfectly with the Animal Expedition Suite in the Annual Catalog, too!

If you haven’t put your kit together yet – here’s a peek!

Hey, y’all!  Happy Saturday!

I’ll be back this evening with a card share – I’m taking part in the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop today – as their Special Guest!  How exciting is that?  So – watch for that post later, okay?

Right now – I’d like to remind y’all about an opportunity to take part in one of my Online Host Clubs!  I’ve had a great response – but…I’ve got a few extra spaces to fill to round out a complete club and accommodate a couple folks who really want to get a club going!  So…if you’ve got a long wish list from this great new catalog – take advantage of a chance to gather up the goodies!

Stampin’ Up! Hold on to The Cross of Hope for Easter!

Happy Easter, y’all!  Rejoice in the miracle of this day!

So – bad news first. 🙁  I’m not going to be doing a FB Live video tonight – sorry!  I’m cooking today and going to our friends’ for dinner, so…it’s just not in the cards.  And – I suspect y’all have plans of your own! So – we’ll make a date and meet again next Sunday!

The good news is that I have a whole card – with instructions! – to share with you right now! No sneak peek! 🙂

I felt that an Easter card was called for, so I went to my Hold On To Hope bundle – which includes the Cross of Hope Framelits.  I added in some leaves from the wonderful Petals & More Framelits and a pretty little sentiment from You’re Inspiring.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Whole Lot of Lovely True Gentleman Marker Holder

Hey, y’all!  Welcome to the weekend.  Again!  Wow.  Time is flying – Sale-A-Bration ends TODAY!  So…if you’ve been “waiting till the last minute”….uhm….the last minute is upon you! 😉

Friday was busy for me – Finn to the vet (he’s fine!), real-work busy-ness, horse-shoer….bottom line, when I got ready to get a project together to share with you for today, I needed to select from one of my quicker to-do-list goodies!

Enter…the Sharpie Holder! 🙂

I’d seen this quick and fun project on Pinterest – from The Papered Chef – and thought they’d be fun to make.  And since they’re quick and easy – they’re perfectly perfect if you need a bunch of them!  The base is simply a strip of DSP – I used the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP – and a sentiment.  I grabbed one from Truly Tailored – the punny-ness of it was just too cool.  Take a look-see:

A New Look for Stamps-N-Lingers, an Ordering Special and a Little Blog Candy!

Good morning, y’all!

Well? What do you think of the new look?

There’s probably a little tweaking left to do, but…I’m loving it – and sending a great big Thank You to Jane from Fancy That Jane who managed to fulfill all my requests!  Dogwoods – pines – and the pony!  Plus – my favorite wood background!  Remind you of any particular paper in the Wood Textures DSP? 😉

Now – if you’ll forgive me the indulgence – I’m going to pat myself on the back just a smidge.

Yesterday, at the grocery store, I ran into my good friend.

Only – she looked right at me and didn’t recognize me!

Guess that’s what dropping 106 pounds will do, eh? 🙂

Yep. That’s the current number!

So – my loss is your gain!  Literally!

For today and tomorrow only – I’m offering DOUBLE Peppermint Points on all orders over $50 (before Shipping and Tax)!

Stampin’ Up! Happy New Year and…a Little Blog Candy!

Well – Happy 2018, y’all!!  I hope you got to party or sleep – whichever is your preference! – last night and that 2018 came in like a lamb for you!

I did my usual.  Went to bed.  Woke up to let the Man out around 1.  Went back to bed.  You know.  Exciting New Year’s Eve stuff.  🙂

I thought it would be fun to usher in the new year with some Blog Candy!  What do you think?

Now.  Just to manage expectations.  I spent a bit of time across the weekend going thru my…mess.  The mess I call my stamping area. And re-arranging!  Oh – and buying a new storage cabinet and ribbon shelf from StampNStorage (now just have to figure out where to put them when they arrive!).  I might have annexed a little more living room…but it looks a lot better!

I moved all the stamps to the table to the left of the screen.

I digress.  What I was meaning to say is that there’s no real rhyme or reason to my blog candy today.

Do you mind that there’s no theme?? Hope not.

So – I’m celebrating three things today, so there’s three Blog Candy Packages up for grabs!

First – I’m celebrating the arrival of 2018 with all my friends and family safe and healthy and happy!  And…here’s Package #1:  A Cottage Greetings Project Kit and Cottage Greetings stamp set, a bunch of Stampin’ Spots in all sorts of colors, and a slew of cards and card fronts for you to use/embellish/finish!

The second thing I’m celebrating is that I’m within a hair’s breadth of reaching one of the intermediate goals in my weigh-loss journey.  I was hoping I’d hit that goal for 2018 – but…I’m close enough to celebrate!  So…package #2 is…Finely Woven Ribbon in the 2017-2019 In Colors, the current SAB Happy Wishes stamp set, some 2017-2019 In Color Bitty Bows Embellishments, and a pack of 2016-2018 Glitter Acrylic Shapes.

Finally…I’m celebrating the growth of my business this year!  And – I mean growth in sales…growth in my team…and growth in the number of wonderful people I’ve “met” in the course of the year.  All thanks to this wonderful hobby of ours!  Thank you ALL!  So, Package #3 is…a horrible picture (sorry!)…but it’s a Pretty Pocket Card Kit, the SAB stamp sets Amazing You and Lots of Lavender, a 2016-2018 In Color Glitter Acrylic Shapes, and a pack of Touches of Nature Elements.

Okay – now.  

How to win?

Leave me a comment ON THIS BLOG POST!  Have you made any resolutions for 2018?  Are you going to craft more?  Take more time to be creative? What’s on your radar for this year?

You’ve got until the end of the day on Monday, 8 Jan 18, to leave your comment and get entered to win!  On Tuesday morning, the 9th,  I’ll use my handy Random Number Generator to select three lucky winners!  I’ll announce the winners in that day’s blog.

We saw the pond-bee today.

It escaped it’s muddy marinade and peeked up to the surface.

But…I’d found the green bumper in the house.  Mom can throw it easy – and far! – with its rope.  It’s fun.  And it caused a puppy conundrum.

A difficult choice, indeed.

But – apparently the pond-bee needs a few more days in the marinade.

His choice, however, almost caused the first “swim”.  The bumper floats – since it’s a bird-dog trainer and all!

It floats gooooood….

He almost bumped it one too many times with his schnoozle, sending it further into the pond.

Smart boy that he is – he grabbed the rope at the last minute!
