Saying Good-bye is never easy...

Not me, I am not going anywhere! I am talking about the Retiring Stamp Sets and Accessories that are leaving FOREVER! And boy oh boy are there alot retiring! So you will need to check your WISH LIST and make sure that you get all those Stamin' Up! products you've been wanting. The Accessories like Big Shot Dies and Ribbons (anything that is not a stamp!!) will be "while supplies last"...so the best way to guarentee that you get them is to order right away from my ONLINE STORE. The Accessories List is updated daily so what is there tomorrow may not be there on Thursday! If you just have stamp orders then I can place that order for you...but you can order both on the same online order. If you have any questions please contact me!! I am here to help!! And in case you didn't know, Online Orders ship directly to your house...then you'll know how I feel when Mr. Brown pulls up to my house...it's like Christmas every time!!!

So I have a class tonight that I am very excited about!! I love the cards we are going to make and I love sharing them with people! Full crowd tonight too!

My next 3 Card Class is Tuesday, June 14th...this class is back by popular demand! We are using the Four Frames Stamp Set to make three cards. I showed my club members the cards and they wanted to make them too. There is still room in this class!! Just contact me to reserve your seat. The cost is $15.

So don't forget to go to my ONLINE STORE tomorrow to see the Retiring List!!

I'll be back tomorrow with the other two cards we are making tonight.

Enjoy this lovely HOT weather this evening!!

What an amazing Trip!!

We returned home from our Alaskan Cruise late Friday night. Still recovering...my poor husband still has a case of the dizzies!! He was not affected at all onboard the ship....I on the other hand had a bout of sea sickness on the 21st, then again on the 25th, both sea days. I hope he feels better soon.

Well, it was so much more than I had imagined. Wow! Stampin' Up! sure knows how to spoil! I cannot share it all with you just yet. But I can share with you a card I made today. I have a class tomorrow night that I have been preparing for today! Oh, it was fun to stamp again!

So here is a card we will be making tomorrow night...
This card was inspired by a swap card I received from a table mate on Cruise named Jill Olsen, a very sweet woman, (and her husband, Danny, was the entertainment for our Husbands!).

On this card I used Hello Blossoms stamp and Beyond the Garden DSP, both from the Summer Mini Catalogue. You can click the link in the sidebar to view the Summer Mini Catalogue and all the other wonderful product!! Check out The Open Sea stamp set and the Triple Layer Punches!!

So I must Thank you for coming back over and over again...even though I have not been very consistent posting. I will do better!

Now I better get my clothes out of the dryer...have to get a nice outfit together for tomorrow...I have a job interview! Wish me luck!! This will be the perfect job for me...part time in the evenings...every Monday, Wednesday evening one week, then Monday, Wednesday, Friday evening, all day Sat and Sunday then next week. Every other weekend off! That's great! Home with my kidlets in the daytime for the Summer! The same hours weekly...that will make my life so much easier!

And as you know I always hold my classes on Tuesday and Thursdays...perfect!!

Ok, so wish me luck!!

I let you know how it goes!!
Thanks for stoppin' in!

Counting down to Alaska...

Hiya!! I am getting so excited!! I am counting down the days to the Stampin' Up! Alaskan Incentive Cruise. 10 days left! Knowing for almost one year that I would be going has been killer. I have been sitting on my excitement as not to upset my children who will not be joining us.

I have been busy busy getting all the things done on my checklist...I have to pick up my two formal dresses today, I already picked up my hubby's suit and I found Sea Bands and childrens gravol...I get sick in the car...oh, I hope that I don't feel too sick on the boat...that would suck! I have new shoes, a new hairdo, new make up even!!

We are still trying to narrow down our "want to do" list for shoe excursions. That's been a hard one. There are lots of thing that we want to do and see in Alaska...I have always wanted to go there!! My husband and I are celebrating our 10 year Wedding Anniversary on May 19th, the day before we set sail. I am so lucky to be able to earn this amazing trip. I could not have done it without my husbands' hard work (taking care of the kiddes while I am teaching a class, cooking, cleaning and laundry!). So he has earned this cruise too. I get to give this gift to him for 10 wonderful years together and two beautiful children!!

I am sorry that I do not have any cards to share...my camera is full of pic's of the kiddies. I have to get that downloaded soon. I have been creating cards though. I promise to take pic's and get them posted soon. I also want to share a picture of the gift Stampin' Up! sent me with all my cruise info in! Just gotta get the camera done!

Oh, I wanted to share that I have a job interveiw tomorrow! This is for a position at a company that I worked at 10 years ago. I worked in a chem lab as a temp employee and my contract ended three months before my wedding. So here we are now, 10 years, two kids later and I am so hoping to get this job. I loved working there. Many of the great staff are still there too! So please keep me in your thoughts!

Hope that you are enjoying the day...it is beautiful, sunny and warm here in Sarnia, Ontario!!
