It's really never too early to be thinking about Christmas is it?  All of the stores have Christmas items in them already, and, while I do think it's a bit early to be purchasing decorations, I don't believe it's too early to make some wonderful, hand-stamped Christmas Cards!  YOU design your class by choosing the cards you want to make. You'll make TEN of each card that you choose, envelopes are included. You can make 10, 20, or 1000, it just depends on how many you want! Bring your own adhesive (and plenty of refills too, it takes a lot of glue to put together this many cards!) and bring your own scissors. All other supplies, fun, laughter, doorprizes and snacks will be included. You can come and go as you please during the times listed. If you have limited time, you can come and stamp all 10, put one together and then take the rest home to finish at your leisure! Payment is due with registration, but no later than Friday, October 29th. After that, I may not have enough supplies on hand and I won't have time to order more.

Email me at terri.meehan@att.net  or call 614-777-9288 to make registration / payment arrangements. Thanks!

Christmas Cards are coming!

Sorry to be away so long.  My mother-in-law passed away a week ago Sunday, surrounded by most of her family.  Things were pretty crazy around here last week, we were the gathering spot each day and night for meals and lots of reminiscing.  It was great to see everyone in the family and get to spend so much time with them, but it's sad that it took the death of someone so important to everyone to make it happen!  She obviously touched a lot of lives and I'm very grateful to her for the family and friends that she gathered around her.  She'll be missed, that's for sure :(

In spite of being creatively challenged lately, I think she must have been looking over my shoulder yesterday.  Cards that I had been struggling with for days suddenly came together and I'm happy to say that I was able to get samples made for all of the cards I'll be offering at my Christmas Card Camp.  The date is Sunday, November 7th, from 1 to approx. 6 pm.  Mark your calendar and save the date.  I've got a class this morning and then I'll be back on here to post pictures from that, and a couple of other classes.

Don't put off telling your loved ones how special they are to you, life is short!

Out of touch for a few days...

Some of you know that my Mother-in-law, Theresa, has struggled with Alzheimer's for the last few years.  Her health has been deteriorating over the last several weeks and she took a turn for the worse yesterday.  We don't expect her to live through the day.  So, it doesn't look like I'll be able to post much for the next few days.  Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers, our biggest hope and wish right now is that she remain peaceful and pain-free right up to the end.  We also have a lot of family members coming in from out of town (California, Florida, New York) and we're praying for safe travels for them (My husband, Tim, is one of 7 children so it's a pretty big family!)

Take care, and give your loved ones an extra hug and kiss today!

Terri :)

Do my pictures look weird to you?

I don't know what the deal is with my photos lately!  For some reason they're getting chopped off when I go in to view the blog.  Do they look that way to everyone?  They look fine when I put them into the post and I didn't realize they looked different until I went in and looked at my blog without signing on as adminstrator...

If they look weird to you all would you let me know and I'll try to figure out what the problem is, get it fixed, and reload the pictures.  Thanks!

10-4 Good Buddy!

Yes, today's 10/4 and everytime I think about that I'm reminded of a few years during my childhood when my mom and dad were BIG into CB's.  I can't remember what I did last week, but I can still remember our call letters (KCD8739) that we used to identify ourselves on the radio.  And I can remember our CB Handles (names) too:  Dad was Red Apple because he drove a Red Chevy Van, Mom was the Avon Lady (I think you can figure that one out), my brother was Wang Fang (I don't know...), I was Crab Apple (referring both to my ever-so-sunny disposition AND the fact that I was my father's daughter), and my sister was Little Red.  Ha-ha, those were some very interesting years, indeed!

But there I go again, digressing.  I'm sure Wendie's out there shaking her head. Aren't ya, Wendie?!

Today's the day I promised to tell you why YOU should join the Stampin' Up! Family of Demonstrators and sign on with me.  I spent the weekend narrowing it down to my top 10 favorite reasons right now.  Ask me next week and I'll probably have new ones :)  Here they are:

1) 20% (OR MORE) Discount on every order!

2) You stamp anyway, why not do something to help offset your costs? 

3) Through Oct 19th you can get a free Crafter's Tote in the Greenhouse Gala Print (39.95 value)

4) Starter kits are inexpensive and include everything you need to get started at a great discount!

5) 30 % off your first order placed as a demonstrator.

6) Make new friends by sharing something you LOVE!

7) Order from new Mini Catalogs a full month before everyone else can!

8) Travel the country with your friends, fellow demonstrators, for Incentive Trips, Conventions and Regional Seminars!

9) Write off your expenses (travel, supplies, etc.) on your taxes :)  (Sorry, Uncle Sam!)

10) Sign up now and you'll receive a stamp set from the Occasions 2011 Mini Catalog before it's available to everyone else, absolutely free! (I hope to make it back in here to post all the details on this promotion, but just in case I don't, ask me :)

Whew!  That's quite a list and I know I left out lots but I would be so happy to share more information with you.  I pride myself on not being pushy, so I'll give you the information you need to need to make a decision that's right for you.  We have a large group here in the Central Ohio area, we get together a couple of times a quarter -at least- to stamp, have meetings, etc.  And we'd love to have you join us!

Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to schedule a time to get together and talk about this wonderful opportunity!

Baltimore, MD Regional Swap Card

Well, here it is.  My swap card for the Baltimore, MD Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar.  I made 50 of these to swap with other SU! Demonstrators at the seminar which means that I'll be bringing home 49 brand new, never been seen before card samples for us to drool over.  AND, we're getting the Day of Gratitude stamp set free for attending today.  AND, we're doing Make & Takes with it too.  How much more wonderful can this day get?!

Hope your day is wonderful too!

Ps- Don't forget to sign up for the October Cards Class if you haven't already!  See post from 9/27 for pics and details.


If the SHOE fits...

Well, Mindy has been at it again.  She had a personalized stamp made that reads "If the SHOE fits..." and used it on this adorable card.  It makes me laugh everytime I look at it :)  And her attention to detail is beyond amazing.  I notice something different everytime I look at this card!

Speaking of Mindy, I'm spending the weekend at her place in Virginia (in her new stamp room, no less!) stamping and hanging out with the girls.  We're heading up to a Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar in Baltimore, MD in the morning.  It's just one of many fabulous perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  Want to hear about the rest?  Stop in on Monday and I'll share more with you. I hope to post some pictures from our weekend, too.  In the meantime, there will still be posts tomorrow and Sunday (automated since I may not have access to the internet). 

See you next week!
