I’ve been MIA this past week between migraine, school, overnight company, and pulling out Christmas trees. And now that I think of it, MAYBE that’s why a migraine set in! LOL! I aim to have my Christmas trees up and decorated by Thanksgiving so I can enjoy them throughout the entire month of December. Did you notice the plural “trees”? We have been putting up mutiple themed trees for over 35 years and the ornament collection continues to grow. This year I decided to add one more to the evergreen montage so there are five trees – all 7.5 feet or more! Am I nuts? Yes, but each of those trees give me joyful, wonderful memories of our years together and it just wouldn’t be Christmas without them.
One of the favorite perks of purchasing the starter kit with Stampin’ Up! is the opportunity to buy the new products a full month before our customers! We were able to purchase a small selection of items when we participated in the On Stage At Home last weekend, and above are my selections from the Product Premiere. Super excited about the Valentine Suite, the Daffodils and dies, the bumble bees, and the items that coordinate in the upcoming Saleabration brochure as well!
Stampin’ Up!’s special for November is truly the best deal they have EVER offered the Start Kit so think seriously about it! If you love Stampin’ Up! products, would like early access to ordering, if you want to be part of a wonderful group of like minded, crafty people, then this is for you. Select ANY product up to $125 in value and PAY only $75 plus tax – it even ships free! Click on the link below to purchase!
And with the arrival of new products it time to begin thinking of out with the old. Stampin’ Up! just posted a list of
items carrying over to next year though!!! Check out the list below to see what items will be available from this year’s mini holiday catalog so you ALSO have an idea what will NOT be available once December is over:
As you begin your preparations for the holiday season – whether it’s preparing for Thanksgiving dinner or bringing out the decorations for Christmas like me – be sure to take some time for yourself. Enjoy some crafting time, some quiet time, and some family time. Until then, keep stamping, keep crafting, and God Bless!
