Everyone needs a little help sometime

Sunday, November 29, 2015
I am blessed beyond compare!  One of my friends that I met because of Stampin' Up! offered to help me out with my ginormous order.  Her cousin chipped in too and we had a wonderful day of chatting and laughing. There is still a bunch to do on the third card, but I don't think I would be able to meet my deadline without their help!!
Grampa has a little helper too!  He gave Gracie the task to cut out the freezer paper that he lines his soap molds with.  This helps him out a ton especially now that his time is at a premium with all the craft sales.  His stock is so low he will need to make several batches of soap each week to build it back up.  Yeah! for good sales!! His not-so-little business has really taken off and I am so proud of him!
Gracie was also my big helper in preparing the Thanksgiving Day Pies.  Since she had the day before Thanksgiving off school she spent the day with Gramma.  We made a full sized Pecan Pie, and a full sized Pumpkin Pie, but we also made some mini Pumpkin Pies in a muffin tin - that way we could sample them already on Wednesday!!
She also helped me clean the bathrooms (but I didn't take a picture of that!!)
My little sweetie also decorated the little Christmas Tree that I put up for my team Christmas Party.  She did a fabulous job!  Being 10 rocks!

Thanks for stopping by!
And have a blessed Sunday!

Black Friday

Friday, November 27, 2015
Are you a Black Friday Shopper?  I have had a time or two that I have gone out for something, but in general I try to stay away from the rush of shoppers on this day.  Usually all my Christmas shopping is done by now with maybe just a few straggling items to pick up here and there.  What is totally perfect for your shopping today is to get in on the Online Extravaganza going on at Stampin' Up! through Monday, November 30th.
Here are the links you will need to pick up those special gifts for the stamper or crafty person in your life.  It is NOT just stamps! you will find ribbon, twine, punches, dies, markers, ink, Paper Pumpkin kits and refills, accessories - well I could go on and on - I guess you just better take a look for yourself!
Please use the HOSTESS CODE 4GWV6TBW when placing your online order.
Before I show you the lists of the the items on sale I will first show you some fun cards using some of the stamps sets that are featured on the Holiday Online Extravaganza

Day off

Wednesday, November 25, 2015
Today Gracie and I are taking a day away from the craft room and spending it in the kitchen preparing for our Thanksgiving feast tomorrow.
Little Sawyer came through his surgery just fine, and we are hoping he can come home later today, but that all will depend on how he does when they do his feedings with the new G-Tube in his tummy.  Thanks to all of you who have prayed for him.  His road to health is still continuing and I am sure that Jeff and Jess covet everyones prayers as Sawyer continues with feeding therapy.  We are praying that by Thanksgiving next year he will be eating right along with us at the table.
While at the hospital Sawyer was visited by a couple of therapy dogs, and I guess he really liked them.  Maybe there will be a puppy in Sawyers future but not until things settle down a bit.
 And I bet it won't be as big as this Great Dane!!

 Thanks for stopping by!

It's a Christmas Pumpkin

Tuesday, November 24, 2015
I am loving this months Paper Pumpkin Kit!  If  you are wondering what it looks like to receive a Paper Pumpkin Kit in the mail then check this out: It comes in this handy little box all wrapped with love...
 It comes with a photopolymer stamp set and an ink spot (different each month, of course)
A package of all the goodies with the step by step instructions
 Here are all the elements
 Standard size and tiny little honeycomb dimensionals came in this months kit
 Die cuts 
 Card bases come with both sides printed (front and back) so if you want to get a bigger bang for your buck you can cut them in half and mount them onto card stock (white or vanilla whichever is appropriate) or maybe even a colored card stock that coordinates
And remember when you subscribe through me you will receive a FREE PDF of alternate ideas. Maybe  you want to give it a try without the committment - if so...

The Holiday Extravaganza Continues!!
These are the Paper Pumpkin Items that are discounted during the 8 day sale: 
November 23-30.
And for this sale only, you do not have to be a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber (although I hope you will like them so very much that you will want to subscribe!)
Which one was my favorite?  It is so very hard to decide - they are all fun and when you subscribe through me you will get an EXCLUSIVE PDF of alternate ideas to use your kit for. (this is when the refill kits come in handy!!)  I will say, however that I have used the cup stamp from the Thanks A Latte Kit often in my regular card making. I cannot show you the exclusive ideas that will be included in the PDF this month, but I always share my 12x12 scrapbook page. (disclaimer: I did use my alphabet die that is not included in the kit, but you can always use whatever die cuts you have in your scrapbooking supplies or even stickers to create the same look)
I cannot wait until Sawyer is well enough after his surgery today and after he has all the tubes out of his nose so we can kiss his little cheeks! I bet you can envision the photo too, can't you?  I made the space extra large to fit a 5x7 photo and will most likely create a second page to go with it of our photo shoot with all 3 grandchildren.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you who have supported my business in Stampin' Up!  I am happy to announce that I achieved my $100,000.00 goal already!! And it is all because of YOU!!
I thought there would be some grand hoopla when it happened, but I didn't even notice it.  My upline, Glenda, sent out a congratulations on our Facebook page, and I was shocked!! So thank you again for your business!!  Hopefully the next $100,000.00 won't take nearly 8 years!!
I just love to get fun stuff in the mail, don't you?  Instead of all the bills or nonsense mail, it is nice to get a personal card from someone who cares about you and even takes the time to hand stamp a card for you.  This next card is a beauty that my friend, Carla, sent me for Thanksgiving.
I LOVE it!! Thank you Carla!!
Tomorrow will be filled with Thanksgiving day preparations and I will have my helper (Gracie) with me all day.
Wishing you all a blessed Thanksgiving!
