School's out...for the summer

Finally, the last day of shool. Yes, late here in NH. I think there were too many snow days this year.

Relief for the kiddies and time for moms to find lots of activities to keep those kids happy. If you are interested in a kids stamp camp/class, drop a line. I have lots of fun projects that are little kid friendly.

And on July 1, you will be able to see some adorable and awesome new products from SU! designed for your little Princess or Pirate....

I will have 8 catalogs available on 6/25, contact me today to reserve your copy! Ask me how you can get your catalog (9.95 value) for FREE!

kickin' it in gear!

For a while now, my husband and I have been working on creating a stamping space for me in the basement. Finally, putting on the finishing coats of paint...( the color is 'Honeydew', a fresh, bright green) Personally I think he just wants the kitchen and dining room tables back!

So once my space is done, I will have plenty of room to see all my STUFF and to work on layouts and class projects. Because of the comfort level, I'll probably still have clubs and classes upstairs, but my family will not have to deal with all my bits and pieces laying about for a week beforehand, and a week after! lol

Come back often, as I will be adding class listings and posting samples, very soon!

Tomorrow I am off to a lacrosse tournament with my daughter, her teams games start at 4 pm and finish at 8 pm. And it is an hour away.....It will be a long day, but I do love to watch, it is so fast paced.

Ahhhh, Friday. Best day of the week in my mind....

Was heading to bed and realized tomorrow is June 12. June is almost halfway over, which means we are that much closer to the July 1st release of the SU! 09-10 catalog.

If there are items that are still on your wish list from the 2009 Spring/Summer catalog, contact me today for the availability of those items and to place your order.

And leave a comment, let me know you've been here...


Wednesday, June 10

Hey, I'm back. Funny how that happens, I just show up at random times.....

Did not browse/slobber on my new catalog today, but thought I'd come back to share some thoughts about the stamp sets, like I promised.

There is something for everyone in this new catalog! Fun and furry, cute and sassy, elegant line drawings for coloring. Some great new sentiment sets too, fresh and up to date. Some offerings have been completely re-vamped, you will have a clue if you have checked out the Last Chance Stamp list. Lots of old favorites staying around too, like Lovely as a Tree.

There is always a lot of speculation among demos before the Last Chance list comes out, friendly contests to guess the most sets that will only be available for a short while longer. Lovely as a Tree, Sincere Salutations, and Curvy Verses were all on the chopping block, in most demos minds, but these perennial favorites survived for another catalog period.

OH, the holiday selection! Can't even believe I didn't mention that! Lots of bee-u-tee-full holiday stamps, ranging from elegant to just plain cute. You will surely find something to love in this catalog.

Contact me to reserve your copy today. $5.00 each, includes a $5.00 coupon towards your first order of $25 or more. Ask me how to earn one for FREE!


New Catalog!

So I have been sitting on the news that I have my demo copy of the new 2009-2010 Idea Book and catalog. Wanted to relish it all by myself for a few days.

I do love the new In Colors, they are all over the place in retail stores, magazine layouts, etc. When SU! introduce the concept of "In Colors" a few years ago, I admit I was skeptical and wondered if it really mattered. Well, I can tell you it does. The fresh, up to date colors add a whole new dimension and vitality to 'old' stamp sets.

Someday I will have my photo taking and posting abilities on the same wave length and have some pictures to share.

For now, I guess you have to take my word for it!

I'll be back soon with thoughts on new stamp sets. No, I can't show you, can't even name names, but I can tell you what I think.....

Andrea D. won her choice of stamp set, Carol S. won the Hostess Set and Renee M. won a $20 Gift Certificate toward future purchase.

The Mystery Hostess was a lot of fun, and I am glad to say that all the retiring products that my customers ordered were still in stock and available. The In Colors were so popular this year, I had a few worries.....
