Back to Business

I’m happy to be home after our vacation.  I still can’t believe we drove from coast to coast.  I get tired of being in the car just going to the airport, but somehow I managed to tolerate much longer drives this time.  I will say, however, that I’m not planning on driving anywhere any time soon.  lol 

Now that I’m back, it’s time to get back to business.  I received my preorder from the new spring catalog, so I’m anxious to start playing with my new stamp sets and accessories.  It might just take me a few days to get back into the swing of stamping something decent enough to share. 

Also, getting back to business means I am sending out the shipping rebate checks.  Thanks so much to all of you who ordered while I was away.  Unlike having a “normal” job, Stampin’ Up does not give me paid vacation when I’m away, so it was nice to continue to have a little income while out of town.  I’m mailing the checks today, so be on the lookout for them in the next week or so.

TTFN (Ta Ta For Now)


As many of you know, I’ll be traveling this holiday season.  This blog will not be updated again until after Christmas.  You may still place your orders online while I’m away (& I hope you will!,) but keep in mind that during my absence the shipping rebates will be delayed until I return home.

I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas! 

PS – If you want to see where I am and what I’m doing for the next 3 weeks, be sure to check my family website at  I hope to post to it every couple of days starting on Friday.

The Ornamental Elegance Kit (132832) is $14.95 and includes:

  • Die-Cut Cardstock Elements
  • Cherry Cobbler 3-1/2" Scalloped Tulle Ribbon
  • Natural Linen Thread

Happy Stampin!
