It has taken me a little longer to get out this newsletter because, as you can see, my calendar is filling up with many fun events. Remember if you do not see an event on here but are interested, please bring it to my attention. I love hearing your class ideas. And soon I will be able to have classes from the convenience of my home. Kind of a little (a whole lot!!!!) excited about that. I have been taking my classes on the road for since 2008/2009, which I do love doing, and coming to people’s homes to create together, but there is something about the convenience of being in your own space. I know you all know what I mean.


Weekly Deals
Don’t forget that Stampin’ Up! has weekly deals posted Tuesdays. Always while supplies last. You can see how many items are left from the order screen.

Paper Pumpkin
Paper Pumpkin is your crafting solution. $19.95 (plus tax). Everything you need to escape and create right in a pretty blood orange box delivered to your door monthly. Order multiple months and save more. Use hostess rewards for an even better deal. Pinterest has lots of alternate uses for each kit. Ask me how.


I have a special Sale-A-Bration club for January – March. $50 per person with 3 people per club. Each take a turn being a silent hostess. Details at the end of the newsletter.

Any time you have a group that agrees to purchase a minimum of $150 in merchandise total a month, you can form your own club and take turns being silent hostess. 10 people at $15 per month? 6 people at $25 per month? 5 people at $30 per month? You get the picture.

I am available to assist you with your holiday projects. Holidays seem to bring out the handmade in people. Call or email any time. Happy to assist you.

Many items from the Holiday mini catalog are retiring. The list is available at my website. I am completely crushed that the Woodlands embossing folder is retiring. But that usually means that have even cooler products just around the corner. Get your items while they are still available. List was posted on November 16th. Supply levels should be posted. Act fast!!!

I do hope you are able to attend the appreciation event this Friday by BeBops in Blaine.

Thank you for being my customer. <3 andy="" o:p="" you="">
