Needs A Ribbon in October 2013

Needs A Ribbon in October 2013

My ladies it has been a loooong time since I have sent a sent a newsletter, wish that is has not been so long. Life has been interesting. Read below for an update of what has been going on or skip to the good stuff.

UPDATE: I did go to the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake this July. I had mentioned that previously. But I had not mentioned that my knee gave out and I did a face plant on the sidewalk outside my hotel. Uncool. The stampin' ladies took excellent care of me while I was there. I have two bad knees which is mostly why the accident happened. 

Then less than two weeks later my family took a 17 day family vacation. It was an amazing experience. We were all over the SW area. Managed to see many sights in between rains and floods and fires. I think a day after we left Manitou Springs there were deadly floods. Feeling blessed that we are OK, and heartbreaking that others were not as lucky.  

Came home from Vacation and 2 weeks later had my injured knee replaced. The knee is named Hank. He is strong and temperamental, much like Hank in Breaking Bad, if you are a fan. I am six weeks out from that surgery on the recovery road. It is not always a smooth road, I am learning. 

I explain all this to explain where I have been. It has felt like a whirlwind some weeks. I have stamped some, but I miss holding classes. I am going to try and put together a modest schedule of classes and offerings. See Schedule below.  I do feel remiss that unless you are heading to my website, not my blog , frequently, you have not seen some of the specials Stampin' Up! has had to offer. for more information or call me at 612-280-5590.

Weekly specials. Check  weekly for more information. 

There are weekly deals, and sometimes surprise Thrifty Thursday type deals. Be sure to check frequently or bookmark my blog and click on shop now, to see the current specials. I am not going to send emails for every special, I am sure you appreciate this, and will just let you know of the greatest of the great deals.

Which leads me to my next point. Until 11 pm CST October 21st you can join Stampin' Up! for $25. Yes just $25 dollars to get your discount on merchandise, become part of a great team with wonderful support and monthly and quarterly downline meetings to help your business.
