September Classes

Happy Sunday, Stampers- I'm sitting here scratching my head and wondering how this summer is nearly gone already. How does that happen?!

~Before I forget- Make sure to check out the Weekly Deals (over on the left). I'll have an order going in on Monday if you need to order anything. ~

As much as I dread winter, I have to admit that this last week the weather has been amazing! My youngest, Nate is back to school and actually loving it. Marching Band Season has started up again. I'm quickly settling into autumn and everything that it entails. I do love this time of year. Winter? Not so much!

Before we know it the Holidays will be here and gone. But, in anticipation of what is sure to be a busy time, I have lots of ideas for projects for each and every upcoming holiday! If we start early, we should have lots of time to actually enjoy them. Right? Next time you're at the studio, be sure to check out the new hutch that's in the front reception area. I've been loading it up with (Back to) School and Halloween projects, next month I'll take away the School stuff and add Thanksgiving and so on and so on. The goal is to have it constantly evolving so that you get new ideas. And, better than Pinterest, you can actually touch and feel them. Sometimes it makes all the difference to see it in person.

I've been working on lots of fun stuff in the studio this past week and I'll be finishing up September Classes these next few days so you can see them all at the Holiday Mini Catalog Kickoff! In the meantime, here is my September Class Schedule. I'll come back and post pictures AFTER the kickoff event.

Happy Wednesday!

Hello Ladies- Just wanted to let you know that the KITS have all arrived. They finished coming in while I was on vacation so I'll be sending out an email this afternoon with the dates for classes (it'll be next Wednesday and the Wednesday after)

This weeks specials are running to the left and the Clearance Rack (also on the left) was updated with some fun new stuff this morning. Remember Clearance Rack is first come, first served and quantities are limited.

In other news: I do have other classes I'd like to schedule for August, but instead of doing it all at one time I may have to piece it together a week at a time until I get caught up from a)That awful root canal and bone infection, b)My super RAINY vacation in normally sunny SW Florida, c)a slew of doctors appts for my aunt and d) the most fun of all, I get to hang out with my granddaughter Callie this afternoon! :)

The Studio ceiling was painted while I was gone and it looks so much better. I'm having a little bit of a problem being in there for long periods with my asthma and the smell so I'm running the fan 24/7 and I'll try again this morning. Wish me luck :)

I was able to place my preorder this morning from the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog (all current demonstrators can order product a month early). The stuff I got is going to blow your mind. I know I say this every time a new catalog is released but it's the BEST  EVER! I honestly don't know how those geniuses at Stampin' Up! manage to do it, but even after 17 years, I'm a very happy girl today. My preorder will be in before our monthly demonstrator meeting next week. For those of you in my downline, I hope you can join me. And, if you're not already in my downline and you'd like to either earn money from selling or SAVE 20% or more on your purchases. PLEASE talk to me about becoming a demonstrator today. It's super easy and the benefits are awesome! AND, you can add items from the upcoming Mini Catalog to your kit. How fun is that?!

Have a great day!
