Well, It's New Years Eve. Happy New Year everyone. Even though I used to go and celebrate, tonight we are staying home and behaving ourselves. Unfortunately my husband works for the County Highway district and with all the snow, slick roads, he's on call to sand in the middle of the night, so he tries to get all the sleep he can. That's OK, we can watch movies and be sane in the morning.

The most fun news is that on 1-2-08 you can order from the new Spring-Summer Catalog. There are so many really nice stamp sets and really fun new accessories. I know I'm going to go nuts "again" even though I tell myself every year I don't really have to buy EVERYTHING.

Anyone who signs up for one of my stamp clubs gets a FREE Spring-Summer catalog!!! How cool is that?

My retired stamp sale on 1-10-08 is going to be really fun too. As usual, I have lots of retiring stamps from this last 6 months, as well as some from before. The older ones will be reduced even more this year so it's a good opportunity to pick up really nice stamp sets at a really reduced price.

As you know, I told you earlier that this blogging thing is new for me and it's a trial and error period.... Tomorrow I'm planning to upload some cards that I've been working on from sets out of the new Spring - Summer catalog; you will love them.

Happy New Year and I'll be talking to you "next year".

Crazy for Stamping?
Want a fun "Girl's Night Out" learning new techniques?
Join my Stamper's Club!

How would you like a night out with friends doing something you love? How would you like to learn how to make the most of the stamping supplies you currently have? Do you want to learn new techniques and make awesome projects? If you answered YES to any of these questions then a club would be perfect for you. Stamping doesn't get any better than this! Club members enjoy all sorts of terrific benefits:

* Club members meet monthly at my home where you make 3 great projects. Each month you have the choice of 2 different dates to attend, giving you flexibility if something suddenly comes up. Don't worry, the projects are the same on each date! If your schedule won't allow you to make it to the classes, it's still worth joining because you'll receive all the hostess benefits, without having to host a workshop.

* Your monthly order commitment is a minimum of $25 of product for the class period. If you cannot make it in person, simply call in that month's order by the date of your class for the month.

*Club members receive the new Spring/Summer Collection 2008 Idea Book & Catalog. That's a FREE Idea Book - a savings of $10 just for joining!* Club members each receive FREE Hostess Benefits for the month they have drawn. Hostess benefits include a Level 1 Hostess set and $20 in free catalogue merchandise of your choice! During the month you are the designated "Hostess," you may choose to collect and submit additional orders from friends and family to boost your sales total and thus increase your hostess benefits. That means more fun and more free product for you. BONUS: During your hostess month, pay NO SHIPPING AND HANDLING on your personal order.

* Stamper's Club-only product specials. Throughout the club, product specials will be made available only to Stamper's Club members.

Almost a New Year and Big Changes

I'm so excited about being able to share my thoughts and creations with you as I learn how to set up my new Blog. I've never done anything like this before so it will have some trial and error for a while. Christmas is over and I'm so exhausted. I have so many new stamp sets that I haven't used yet and want to start playing with and sharing with you. The Spring Summer catalog is out and I have yet to share with my customers. There are some really fun new stamps and new acdessories, so I will be playing and posting samples. I will also be setting up new schedules for classes, and my Retired Stamp sale here, so keep watching for this new information.
