Just an update...

I'd love to say I have a cute card or project to show you but ....I can't. I've been hard at work trying to implement some ideas I have floating around in this lovely brain of mine. :) I'm also in search of my memory card for my camera! I was outside playin with the dogs the other day and I had my camera with me...and since then I haven't been able to find it...grrr! Once the rain stops, I may try scrounging around the lawn for it! Soooo aggravating...I had some great cards to share with you. :(

But anyway, tonight I'll be working on my SWAP Cards for my demonstrator meeting for Wednesday. And some ideas for my upcoming Hostess Workshop. And I promise to share those with you (if I find my memory card).

Have a great night!

Stampin' Up! and Haitian Disaster Relief

Hi Stampers!
On January 12, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, leaving in its wake devastation so overwhelming that the Haitian people and their leaders can only look for help from the outside to cope. As a Stampin' Up! customer, you can help make a difference in the lives of those who continue to suffer from the effects of this earthquake by purchasing the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set (pictured below).

From now until February 28, 2010, $2 from every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set purchased will be donated to the American Red Cross' Haiti Relief and Development Fund. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.

What a great way to help a good cause! If you are interested in contributing to the relief fund by purchasing this set, please email me back, call me at 860.617.1331, or you can place your order online at this link:

And for an added bonus:
The ‘I {Heart} Hearts’ (cling mount only) stamp set from the NEW Occasions Mini Catalog is My Stampin' Special this Month! Purchase this set for 20% off! You can red more about this special in this post.

Thanks for your kindness!
Happy Stamping!

My 2010 = New Goals, Fresh Beginings & Lots of Changes

Wow...I can't believe 2010 is here already and I welcome it with my first post of the decade! :) I hope you all had a great New Year's...I sure did, but it was definitely uneventful. I worked at the restaurant till 10:30ish and came home to a hubby fast asleep and still got no 'New Years Kiss' Oh well...maybe next year! Ha!

Anyway, I've been thinking a lot in these past couple of weeks about the changes, new beginnings and goals or maybe resolutions of some sort, that I want to set and accomplish this year...not only creatively but through my personal/family life, as well. So this is what I came up with:

  1. Re-organize My Creative Studio: I feel like I can't enjoy my creative time in a place that is far beyond trashed! lol I've been in the process of throwing out scraps, reorganzing all my stamps, and putting things back in order. Hopefully soon enough I'll have my space back!
  2. More Blogging, Candy & Giveaways: I know I started doing well with my blogging the last couple months, but I do want to blog more this coming year! I also plan on having more candy, giveaways, product spotlights, tutorials, and of course some good changes here at PPC.
  3. Expand my Stampin' Up Business: I really do LOVE being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and would love to have more customers to share my ideas and love of stamping with! I will have more of my own monthly specials, classes and clubs this year, as well! Please spread the word!
  4. Photograph my Frst Wedding: I have scheduled my first wedding that I will be photographing!! It is my sister's best friend, Liz and Kyle's wedding on July 17th...I couldn't be more excited...and nervous at the same time! :)
  5. Scrapbook More: I plan on scrapping my Wedding, Honeymoon, & Bachlorette pictures this year!...and I can't wait to start!
  6. Participate in my first Craft Fair: It has always been a goal of mine, and this year I hope to take it on full force. My mom and aunt used to take part in the town Craft Fair, so I will be looking to them for help with this. :) :)
  7. 2010 Goal Scrapbook: I will also be scrapping each of my 2010 Goals that I accomplish this year. :)
  8. Add to my PPC Resume: In otherwords, I would LOVE to be on a Design Team to a challenge blog or maybe even a company! (hint hint ;) ) I am working hard on adding to my design resume...if you'd like to feature me! ;)  

  1. Go to the gym and eat healthy.
  2. Pay off my credit card debt.
  3. Raise $200 for Relay for Life and Erin's Everlasting Butterflies Team...I will NEED you, my follwers help with this, too!
  4. Start building our dream house. :)
  5. Breed Meisha, my dog.
  6. Become more organized!
  7. Reconnect with family and friends, near and far! :)
As you can tell, there is so much I want to doooo...I better get going on it! I hope to put together a 2010 Goal Scrapbook soon too, that way I can keep track of all my accomplishments! (Like #7 in my Creatively list! hehehe)

So anyway, its Friday and I am super happy about that! I have the evening off from work so I plan on blogging and getting crafty! Have a great day!!!

Happy Friday All!
