What fun we are having! Greetings! Wanted to share our January Craftin' Gals Sunday Gathering that was held January 23rd. We opted for a lighter fare for food because all of us indulged during the Holidays. I made homemade Chicken Noodle Soup in our Insta-Pot and we had a salad bar and fresh baked French bread. We celebrated Valentines Day since our February meeting will be after Valentines Day. I made two samples of simple projects ~ a Valentines Candy holder House and a simple Valentines card. Here are the samples the gals used. Here is the group I just have the best group of gals, missing a few...Love them all! I have had a chance to work with the beautiful Parisian Blossoms Suite. The two "bundles" are so gorgeous, I didn't want to stop! Here are my "experiments". I also whipped up this birthday card for the sweet 1 year old cousin of mine. I love the little ladybug stamps and dies. Our next Sunday Craftin' Gals Gathering will be held February 23rd. I want to introduce more new Mini Catalog samples to my team and show some Sale-A-Bration ideas. I better get busy, huh? If you are in the San Diego area and wish to join us please let me know. It is also listed on my Stampin' Up! website https://creatingwithpaper.stampinup.net. I want to remind all of you "thinking" about joining Stampin' Up! during Sale-A-Bration, it is absolutely the best time to do so.

Stay Home, Save Lives! Greetings! These are strange and trying times and probably most of us never thought we would be on "stay at home" orders from the Governments of our states. My husband and I are not going stir crazy as I have read many are. We are normally homebodies and absolutely love our home, so being held up in it has not been too hard. We go out every morning to have our coffee down on our canyon "lookout" that he built in '13. Our kitties go out with us, and we spend about an hour doing our zen coffee thing. It helps us get some fresh air, practice social distancing while enjoying our morning coffee. Plus, we have hobbies that keep us busy! That being said, it was sad that I had to cancel my March Sunday Craftin' Gals Gathering. I missed seeing everyone and missed the creativity that we share. It has been hard being away from my gals and enjoying some creative time together. That is what I look forward to the most when we get control of this horrible thing. I am very fortunate to have a boat load of projects to do in my Papercrafting Studio. Mojo has been low, but I am managing to use some older kits from Graphic 45 that I have had since '18! It will be nice to clear out that space they were all stashed in. More room for upcoming Stampin' Up! goodies. The new '20-'21 catalog is coming out in June! There will be some changes to the catalogs this coming year. There will be two "Mini" Occasions Catalogs January - June and July-December. This starts in 2021. This year the 2nd Mini Catalog (Holiday Catalog) will be coming out in August and good through December. So, Annual Catalog good for 1 year, Mini's good for 6 months each. So here is some Stampin' Up! news...As demonstrators, we got the chance to purchase a new Suite called Ornate Garden Suite that will be available to customers April 1st. I have to tell you, it is the most beautiful suite that...


I am all about crafting and creating unique projects using stamps, ink, paper and of course embellishments!
