{Squee} My First Diva Blog Hop - Occasions Mini Goodies

PI am so excited about participating in my downline groups own blog hop and to share with you some of the great products in the spring Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog. I hope you enjoy hopping around our groups creative genius too!       I am not a kit sort of crafter. Maybe in the 70s and 80s I used kits, but fast forward to present day and I prefer to go it alone and just create from my imagination. I am a kinesthetic learner, so I am told. But given my present day circumstances of being short on time, due to recovery from two knee surgeries and the fact that Stampin' Up! has some adorable kits right now, ahem, I love kits!!!    For my daughters upcoming Sweet 16 birthday I made her an album using the Mini Memories Simple Created Kit. It contains everything you need to make a cute album or easy gift. At $13.95 item #133332 is a true value. Included: chipboard covers, bakers twin, punch out sheets of embellishments, sequins and other embellishments, ring

Spring Class Schedule for Needs A Ribbon

We will see if this works well. I am uploading, or attempting to upload my originally created Spring Class Schedule done in Microsoft word, converted to Google Docs, and trying to upload to Blogger. Should be seamless, right? I have been trying to do this for over a year. I have to email my word doc to my gmail then import to google drive then make sure google docs converts it legibly, and so on. Anyone else had these issues and what do you do or what is your work around. Frustrated beyond belief. I have instructional documents I have wanted to post too. Grrrrrrr. I might just have to stamp tonight to work out some of this anger. Not a bad thing mind you, not at all. Thanks for your patience on this process. I am working on adding a separate tab on my blog as a place to put printables. Patience is a virtue that is a dish best served cold! ~Sandy
