Greetings from sunny Florida!!! We decided to get away for a few days and head to Destin. No real reason so we’ll just say we needed some fresh seafood! Shrimp, crab dip, crab cakes, and calamari are on the list of items we want to enjoy this week. Calamari doesn’t appeal to everyone (gotta say it kind of weirded me out when I saw the TENTACLES on the plate the first time!) but Jim and I both love it! Today I spent the time running diecuts for the farm book class coming up and taking it easy. I find it very difficult to relax at home because there is always something needing to be done – yard work, craft work, cleaning, laundry, etc. Yes, I brought craft stuff with me BUT it’s easy to sit, craft, and play knowing that’s all you have to do – zero cleaning, zero yard work, etc. I especially enjoy bringing Paper Pumpkin and our kit colletions on trips like this!
When Stampin’ Up revealed the 2023 Annual Catalog and also the Last Chance List, they shared with demos that several items will CONTINUE to be available BUT only in the Online Exclusive Tab. Listed below are the items that will STILL be available but will not be posted in the Annual Catalog. Especially take note —- the BASE PLATE/DIE PLATE/EMBOSSING PLATES Pack for both the large and mini Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machines will only be available online!!!Product List
So the first thing I noticed in the list is that the Queen Bee Dies will NOT be available next year, so if that is a stampset you are interested in, you might want to grab the dies now. I do love the Nested Friends bundle and am happy to see it still available. The Designer tags are a beautiful set as well, so glad to see it still remains current. The take away from this is that when looking through the catalog, don’t forget items are STILL AVAILABLE but not included in it. We need to get in a habit to check the online exclusives as well, and Stampin’ Up will be adding to this tab about 3 times a year. It’s simply a matter of training yourself to check both places.
Kind of like learning to like calamari!!! Just got to get pass those tenacles!!! LOL!!!
Until tomorrow, keep stampin, keep craftin, and God Bless!!
