I hope you're all enjoying this beautiful day. The 4th of July has always been a favorite holiday of mine. I love the parades and noise. Cookouts complete with a fresh pitcher of lemonade. It just makes me feel so blessed to live in the USA!
Speaking of blessed. The Stampin' Up! sales year ended on June 30th. I woke up on the 1st to the good news that I earned several awards/rewards and a promotion overnight! I'm so happy to report that I earned the Mediterranean Cruise. I'll tell you more about it later but my husband and I both get to go and we are beyond excited!!! I also promoted to Senior Executive thanks to the hard work of my wonderful downline this year. I earned a bonus for promotions in my first level and also a sales award. It was all very, very exciting and humbling. I feel so grateful to every one of you that has helped. Without you, this would be just another job. Thank you for making it so much more!!!
Okay- July Classes updates:
I'm keeping the class schedules basic for now. I've been fighting off and on with a migraine for several days now and can't spend too much time on the computer. I hope to embellish on some of this info later on.

Please consider joining us for this special class to benefit a special family. Friends of mine from high school, Randy and Daphne Mayhew lost their sweet 18 year old son, Randy Mayhew, Jr, last month to Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). Children with this disorder are often called Butterfly Children due to the fragility of their skin. I'm attaching links to a couple of recent write-ups in case you'd like to read more about him. 100% of the net proceeds from class, along with my commissions from any orders placed at class, will go to help the family with funeral and medical bills via Randy's Butterfly Fund. In this class, you'll make 2 each of the 4 cards shown for a total of 8 cards. Envelopes are included. Please RSVP, along with prepayment. Bring your tool kit (see below) with you to class. Beginners are welcome! If you're not currently a rubber stamper / scrapbooker and need to borrow tools please let me know prior to class.
Thanks for stopping by,
I hope to see you in class soon!
