Christmas Card #1

Why does it seem that every single blog post that I write begins with an apology for neglecting my blog? Well, here is yet another apology! I'm so sorry that I haven't been posting regularly. I have been up to my eyeballs in all things Christmas and am just now finally getting around to getting my own personal Christmas cards made and sent out. I am going to end up with four designs this year and this is the first one. It is being sent mostly to friends and family. It is a CASE of a card that I saw on splitcoast that was made by a member called jchill34. I loved the design of her card and wanted to make my own. I did make a few minor changes to make it my own and I love the way it turned out.
I hope that all of you are having a wonderful Christmas season and that you have been able to take a few moments here and there to relax and enjoy this wonderful time of year! I hope that all of you will have a very Merry Christmas and a new year filled with blessings and much happiness! I will be back soon to share the other three designs of my Christmas cards, so check back soon!

Technique Club Forming Now!

Hello! Would you like to learn some new stamping techniques? Well, I am bursting with ideas that I would love to share with you. I am forming a hostess club where we will focus on techniques that will wow, but that are a bit too involved for my regular classes.

How does a hostess club work?

- There must be six members.

- We will meet in my home once every other month for one year.

- On the date of each meeting, each member is responsible for placing a minimum $25 order (before tax and shipping). The orders will be combined to form a workshop that will receive hostess benefits.

- There will be a new hostess for each meeting. Members will choose their hostess month in the order that they sign up for the club. The hostess is responsible for bringing a light snack for all members to share. I will provide drinks.

What are the advantages of joining the club?

- Each member will receive at least $15 in free merchandise and a free hostess stamp set on their hostess month. You get the benefits of hosting a workshop without having to clean your house!

- You can purchase stamping supplies on a budget.

- You will make two WOW! projects at each meeting that you can take home.

- You get a girls' night out six times a year. (Who doesn't need that?)

-Each member will receive a free copy of the 2011-2012 Stampin' Up Idea Book and Catalog when it comes out in July. (If you don't already have a copy of the current catalog, you will receive one of those as well.)

I am thinking that we would meet on Friday evenings or nights, but I am open to another day as long as everyone agrees on the day. I would love to begin our club meetings in January. Our Sale-a-Bration sale begins in January, so that would be a great time to order and be a hostess! More details on Sale-a-Bration to come. If you are interested in joining this club, please email me at or call me (304) 904-5883. I look forward to hearing from you!
