It’s A Wonderful Life …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you had a wonderful weekend… seems like everyone is busy with their holiday preparations. I got a new tree this year so I’m still working on how to finish decorating, I’ll share when I’m all done.  I love this time of year, yes it’s busy but it seems to be a special time when people really reach out to connect with each other.

I can’t tell you how many years it’s been that I’ve worked two jobs … one of which is my stamping (over 17 years) and I don’t see my self giving it up for a long time! Just like Christmas, I see so many connections being made … people who joined my clubs or have come to my retreat as strangers, and have left with new friends – I love it!!

My blessing is that because of this amazing journey we call being part of Stampin’ Up! … I have brought people together, and these same wonderful people have blessed my life as well.  We are so much more than stamps and ink … we are creating art, creating friendships and changing lives. I am so grateful to be a part of this …

Today I want to share a wonderful new product that goes along with a wonderful opportunity.  I invite you to join me team ❤  and join in on our fun!

During Sale-a-bration … Stampin’ Up! has two amazing offers for a starter kit.  Option 1: Choose $175.00 of product for only $99!!  Option 2: Get $175 worth of product + the exclusive Craft & Carry Tote ($50 Value) for only $129.00

Here’s a little explanation of our exclusive tote …

This is an amazing opportunity and the tote is awesome, but I invite you to join in the fun and experience building new friendships … both with stampers and demonstrators alike!  I have been doing this for a long time and can help you get started … and you can do it for the discount or grow it into what ever you want.

Contact me … let’s chat.  Sale-a-bration kicks off January 3rd.  I love what I do … in fact, It’s a Wonderful Life!!

Thank you for checking out my blog today.

Celebrating 30 Years!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

No … not me, Stampin’ Up! will celebrate their 30th Anniversary this year! Me? I’ll be celebrating 18 years … can you believe it!

This is the time of year when we reflect on our lives and as I reflect on mine, I look at the time I’ve spent with family and friends and found these are my most treasured memories … and the little stampin’ thing that I started 18 years ago have truly complimented both!!

I have met some wonderful people who warm my heart and has also allowed me to spend special moments with my family … and for this I am grateful!

I would like to you join me for some fun, a trip back in time … let’s travel through time with Stampin’ Up! from the beginning to present day! You’ll experience our demonstrator conventions and hear our theme songs …

My journey as a demonstrator began in 2000 with the “Share your Passion” Convention … I was only a demonstrator for a few months, and knew I was in for an amazing ride!  I enjoy attending these events with my downline and Eileen, and we always meet new people, see old friends, and make new ones!! This brings back such fond memories ❤ It’s truly a party!!

If you have ever considered joining our Stampin’ Up! family … I would tell you “Just do It” … this is going to be such an exciting year to be part of this amazing group of women and men… worldwide! I wouldn’t be doing this for 18 years if I didn’t enjoy it … Let me answer your questions & concerns.

Now, Let me leave you with our 2017 OnStage celebration this past November …

We have another event coming in April 2018 right here in Milwaukee! You must be a demonstrator soon … registration begins January 16th  …. Did I mention OnStage falls on my birthday – April 7th!! Time to party!!

You wont want to miss our BIG 30th Anniversary celebration in Orlando, Florida in November 2018 … I’M GOING … Are YOU coming with me?

Have yourself a wonderful day, and thanks for taking a trip down memory lane with me.

I’ll be back tomorrow with a super cute SNEAK PEEK!

See you then!

Sneak Peek …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am totally excited today!! My pre-order from the Holiday Catalog came in yesterday … woo hooo!

I must admit, that I was so tired from a long week at work that I didn’t even open the box until this morning! I just have to share the excitement with you, plus I have some really cool things to share with you about the Holiday Catalog ….


First, I want you to know that Stampin’ Up! is introducing “Marker Packs” … this is a set of two markers that coordinate with a product suite!  Yay … you can now get the markers you need for your projects without having to buy the entire family pack! Just what you asked for 🙂

Scrapbookers …. they also brought back 12 x 12 card stock. These also coordinate with the product suites, so you’ll find them in Real Red, plus combo packs of Real Red & Garden Green for Christmas and a Halloween Night 12×12 Card stock pack of Basic Gray & Pumpkin Pie.

Just so you know … You don’t have to be a scrap booker to love 12 x 12    I use it when making gift tags. Cut your card stock into 6 x 3 inch strips and fold in half, it makes the perfect size gift tag and you don’t have any leftover card stock!

If you can’t wait to get your hands on these, join me and the rest of the Stampin’ Up! family … Starter Kit is only $99 and you can choose items from the Holiday Catalog. Then you can begin your journey (I’m here to coach you) and make extra money for Christmas or just play with you new goodies!

Meet new people

There is no obligation, however we have a blast and I would love you on my team of Stars. Contact me at  or CLICK HERE to begin.

Thanks for stopping by. Remember … your catalogs will be shipping out next week!  Hang on, because I didn’t even get all the goodies I wanted!!

Have a great day ~
