2012 OCCASIONS MINI CALENDAR

 

I am doing well health wise now, but am not totally finished with my treatments.  I am still in the reconstruction process.  I thank everyone for their many prayers and continued support of my business.  Because of YOU, I have been able to hold onto my demo status during my cancer treatment.  I am looking forward to getting my creative mojo back and to begin to share more projects with you once again.  I plan to be able to work on my blog more now that the treatments and surgeries are over.  So, keep watching for more projects and tutorials soon!  And I have added the "Print Friendly" feature that will appear after each post, allowing you to print any tutorial or post right from my blog!  I'm kind of excited about that!

Right now the biggest news is that our new Occasions Mini Catalog is available!  Lots of fantastic new goodies for you to drool over!!!  
You can open up the pdf file I posted above, or CLICK HERE to look through the Mini Catalog at my website.

    I'm doing well and am ready to create again!!!!
    Thank you for all of your prayers.  I am doing really well and trying to catch up on things.  With all of my treatments this summer, things fell way behind and wow, it's hard to get caught up!  My house has been a disaster!  I'm doing really good though, although I do have two more surgeries coming up in December.  But, I'm ready to put this cancer behind me!!!!

    My mojo is returning and I am sooo ready to "play" again!  So, last night I whipped up a Halloween treat for my grandchildren!  I happened to have some of these tins on hand, but you could just as easily put the Nuggets in a cello bag and tie up with the ribbon!

    I wrapped these Nugget candy bars using the stamp set "It's A Wrap Holidays" from the Holiday Mini!  What an awesome stamp set to make it quick and easy to wrap these cute little Nuggets! 
    I love them and already have plans to wrap those little suckers for Thanksgiving and Christmas!  The clear mount set is only $19.95 and you can purchase your own set here or contact me and I'll be happy to place the order for you!

    It's A Wrap Holidays Stamp Set
    Holiday Mini (page 14) - Clear (122772) $19.95    Wood (122770) $27.95

    And here's my little ghosts....with their nugget tins!



    Kraft Gift Box
    Holiday Mini - Item #124106 - Page 15 - $2.95 for 4 (approx size 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 x 2-1/2)

    I also whipped up a real fast gift for my sister for her birthday!  She is a total Halloween nut and I found a spider bracelet (ewwww) for her...LOL!  She loved it!  I packaged it up in one of our cute little Kraft Gift Boxes found in the Holiday Mini (page 15).  These are only $2.95 for 4 of them....not bad at all!  And they are "food safe".....I'm thinking maybe a cupcake could fit into them.  I'll have to try that!  Decorate it up any way you want, including stamping on it.  I was in a hurry, so just whipped this up real fast to hold her bracelet wrapped in tissue.  She loved the packaging too!  It's so easy to impress people with Stampin' Up!
    I just tied our large striped ribbon around it and added the bats punched from our Bat Punch.  I purchased both from our Clearance Rack.....do you ever check out the clearance rack?  I'm pretty sure the bat punch is gone, but I'm not sure about the ribbon!  Keep an eye on the clearance rack, though....lots of good bargains show up there!


    And here are the projects we made in our October Class/Club.  Time to get started on Christmas!  Martha and Linda had run my classes for me all summer (which I soooo appreciated), but it was good to finally be "back in the saddle" in October and prepare for the class myself.
    I apologize if I cased your card and don't have that information handy right now.  I do know the gift card idea came from Dawn Griffith (thanks Dawn!).  We all need gift card holders at Christmas, right?


    And now it's time to get ready for our November class....yikes, it will be next Tuesday already!  That one came around fast!  I got lots of great ideas at the Louisville Convention.  Linda went with me and we took lots and lots of pictures of these ideas and we had a great time! 

    It's good to be back!  :=)  I'm able to post project ideas once again, so be sure to come back and visit!

    NEW HOLIDAY MINI!!!

    Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted since July!  And this will be "short and sweet" tonight, but I wanted to be sure to let you know about the new HOLIDAY MINI that just began in September.  It's packed full of lots of new goodies, including a brand new scoring board!  Be sure to check it out by clicking on the image in the right hand corner for a pdf of the catalog!  Let me know if you have any questions.

    I hope to be back to "normal" soon.  My summer has been spent fighting cancer and when I look back on it, it amazes me to think of what I've done all summer....biopsies, 2 surgeries, chemo...it just kind of put my life on "hold".  I do hope to be sharing projects with you again really soon.  I had a double masectomy 6 weeks ago and am now in the process of reconstruction, which is kinda rough....then I'll have two more surgeries coming up in December.  So, I am reaching the end of my journey, but am still recuperating and not "up to par" yet.  You can read more detail and follow my progress by visiting my "cancer blog", if you are interested.

    Meanwhile, thank you for hanging in there with me and as I reach the end of my journey, please know I'll get back to "normal" and be sharing stamping projects again.  If you have any questions or want to place an order, you can contact me .   Or you can place your order online at my website .  I appreciate your orders......they help keep me in an "active" status until I can get my business back to normal again.

    Cindy
