Hello and happy February 1st!

I can’t believe how fast January flew by! First I had my HUGE BOGO sale! Wow! What a job! I am going to remind myself to schedule it at a different time of year next time. It was very successful, but right after the holidays was just too much! I am still working on organizing my craft studio and am very pleased with it so far. Phase 2 will probably be in April or May since we will be moving again! And I am planning a garage sale around the 3rd week in February! Once that is behind me hopefully I’ll be able to breathe!

And we have a winner! Karen Lackie’s name was drawn out of the hat of BOGO participants! She is the proud owner of the pink “I LOVE STAMPING” apron (made and donated by Patti Drake!) Thanks Patti and all of those who participated in my NEW YEAR BOGO SALE!

Now, here are HAPPY DAYS to look forward to: Valentines Day (as you know is on the 14th) followed closely by Mardi Gras (on the 16th) and the beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday the 17th of February!!! I remember when I was teaching Kindergarten, we had to try to fit everything in including President’s Day. And when it all fell during the same week it was really hard!

Well, I told myself that I could do without it, not buy it, didn’t need it…then I SAW it! The “baby” Cut and Embossing Machine! As with all new babies, it is tiny and beautiful and SO STINKIN’ CUTE that now I HAVE  to have it! Most of the dies work with it and it will be so easy to transport to crops (Lord, please let us get back to cropping soon!) It could almost fit in my purse!

I am enjoying the new catalog and the Sale-a-bration catalog. I promise there is something for everyone! From beautiful flowers, “MAN” sets, to girlfriend sets! Please let me know if you need the catalogs! Here are a couple cards made with stamp sets in the January-June Mini catalog. For details click on gallery!
