Stampin' Up! Open House

I had an open house last week for my customers to take advantage of Sale-A-Bration. I provided a make & take card for them to go home with. Not only was the open house fairly successful it was alot of fun! I offered a drawing for a free Sale-A-Bration set. Anyone who ordered a minimum of $50 that night went into the drawing and my good friend Alex won! Congrats, Alex!

There was interest expressed in purchasing the
SU! patterned paper. It's very impressive with this current catalog. I'm going to be doing a monthly paper club. For $11.60 each month you will choose what designer paper series you want to recieve. It's a great way of getting what paper you want in a moderate time frame.

I should be receiving a swatch of all designer paper available (with the exception of the Prints Designer Series) next week so we can see it in real life, touch and fondle it and drool!

If you want to be a part of this club, let me know! I'll be placing the first club order March 10, 2008.

Valentine's Day

Or shall I say single awareness day? :)

Valentine's day hasn't really been my favorite day. It reminds me of what I don't have. This year I took a different approach. I decided to make it good. I used some of my time to make it special for my daughters.

I paper craft alot. They don't always reap the benefits of my paper crafting with the exception that they know when I die they will inherit my scrapbooks.

I found these cute mailboxes at Target in January and bought four - two for my girls and two to sell. I made little 3x3 matching cards to go with them. My girls LOVED them and I could tell were really happy they were the recipients of at least two of them. While I was making them they asked what I was going to do with them. I told them I was going to sell them :) It wasn't completely a lie... I did sell TWO of them :) I liked the way they turned out and Valentine's Day wasn't a lousy day for me this year because I chose to look at it differently. I even sent money with one of my employees to buy heart-shaped Krispy Kreme doughnuts for the office on his way to work since it was on his way. Yummy!


I scrapped... again!

I gotta tell ya I'm loving scrapping at home. I am changing my priorities and doing what I want with feeling less obligation to other *stuff*! It is so cool.

I started to scrap this two page layout over the last weekend and finished it up early in the week. I love all of the various elements I used and I even used everything in my stash! Even bettah!
