Retiring Colors, saying so long!


2023 Retiring Colors - saying goodbye to these in order to make room for a refresh! Everything offered in these colors is now While Supplies Last! Things tend to go quickly so please shop now to avoid disappointment! If you use my Host Code SM7CJDQ4 and place an order of $50 or more, I will send you a free gift!
Some items may be offered at a discount on our LAST CHANCE LIST so take a look!

Which retiring color is your favorite? I'm going to miss Bermuda Bay and Mango Melody!

Chat soon!

Last Chance for Retiring Items!


To SHOP & SAVE click here.

While you are there you can save on select items that are retiring, check out the clearance rack, and even stock up on some basic items that will have a price increase in the new catalog, beginning May 2nd.  It's been years since Stampin' Up! has done a major price adjustment.  With all of the supply chain issues and costs they've incurred, it was time for them to adjust on a few items.  Not an overall price increase on everything but a few of the basics.  I hope my heads up is of value for you!

If you are ordering less than $150 (before tax/shipping) please use the April Host Code. If your order is $150 or more, please skip the Host Code and enjoy the Stampin Rewards yourself! All orders over $35 will receive a small thank you gift from me.  HOST CODE is entered directly into a open text box in the shopping cart during check out.  It should show me as your Hostess and Demonstrator.

I will pop back in this weekend to share some of my favorite retiring stamp sets!  I just wanted to make sure that I posted about the LAST CHANCE - RETIRING LIST while you still had time to shop for any of your must haves!   

A Fresh Start


It's me, I'm the problem, it's me!
Hahaha, I couldn't resist ... my girls took me to see Taylor Swift in March on Opening Night!

I am just going to TRY and TRY AGAIN with a new level of determination to make my blog a place to share inspiration for my paper crafting and stamping!  It will also serve as my 'Home Base' for my communication regarding my classes, events, specials and company provided promotional offers. I also hope to be able to get to having the registrations for those classes and events to be direct from here too, so everything can be in one convenient place!  Events and such will still be available via my social media channels as well, so be sure to follow me on Facebook & Instagram as well!

The NEW 2023-24 CATALOG will be launching to customers on May 2, 2023!  
I am currently preparing my catalogs for my complimentary mailing to customers that have shopped with me in the prior year.  So, if you have shopped with me, you should be on my list - but feel free to comment to this post to make sure!  I use the Customer Mailing Selector Tool within our website to be able to pull reports to show me who has placed orders and it also provides the mailing address that you have on file.

Some of you may know that we gained a son back in November when Nicole and Sean got married!  They were high school sweethearts and dated through college and beyond ... for 12 years!  So, it was definitely time once she completed her PA School Program and was employed.  They reside in Chicago, living in the city!  We moved Rachel (our youngest) to Pacific Beach, Sandy Diego in July last summer.  She is loving life in California and enjoying living 5-6 blocks from the ocean.  Dave is still working a few more years as we try to envision what retirement looks like!  Handsome Henry the AZ Frenchie is about 3.5 years old and a joy!  He has so much personality and he keeps me company. He also loves the patios at AJ's and Perfect Pear, two of my favorite places to enjoy lunch and a nice cold Iced Tea!

I hope to start posting on a regular basis.  Giving myself a little 'grace period' to get up and running!  Thank you for stopping by and if you feel like dropping a Hi or Hello in the comments, the support would be appreciated as I think one of my 'mind-games' is that I don't think anyone is here.

Have a great weekend!
