The card I’m sharing with you today was given to me at Convention on awards night….. from Stampin’ Up!   Don’t you love it?

The main image is from the Fabulous Four stamp set that can be found on page 13 of the new Catalog.

Before we talk about last night … I have to say … next year please remind me to just take off the week after Convention!! I’m not sure why but I’m so tired.  July has been a  crazy month and I want to do a million things … but my body isn’t listening. It’s mentally and physically exhausting to be behind on everything.  Next week I should be back to normal.  

Holiday  Catalog

The Holiday Catalog goes live on August 28th and as demonstrators we can start ordering the catalogs on August 1st.  Anyone that has ordered a minimum of $50 form me in the last 12 months will receive one automatically (I paid Stampin’ Up! to ship them) and I selected all the names yesterday.  This time I printed the report to have on hand when someone wants to know if they are getting one.   

Google  Hangout

I failed on the Google Hangouts last night.  I tried every Macbook every HD camera in this house … nothing worked.  I continued to research last night and it appears that I needed another piece of hardware to use with my laptop.  I’ve ordered it and it will be here tomorrow.

Now for some additional info …   I can continue using UStream … but … it’s costing me between $300 and $400 a month in overage fees.  Shocking I know!  I called them last month and ask if they had another option for me … they do not.  I have two choices, I can turn the ads back on (when annoys a ton of you) or find a cheaper alternative.  Enter Google Hangouts…. the quality may not be as great …. but it will be affordable.  And if it’s more affordable I can offer them more often.

The reason I failed at the live stream is because I’m trying to use a camera and not a webcam. I prefer that you see my hands … not my face 🙂

Click here if you’d like to see my test with the webcam.

We will try again tomorrow (with my new hardware), Friday July 25th …. and if it doesn’t work … I have a back up plan.  I have a webcam I can use (did two tests last night).  We’ll start at 7pm and if it doesn’t work …. I’ll have all of you just sit tight and I will switch out cameras.  I’m determined to master it … this week!

The other thing I realized after the fact is that leaving a comment (on You Tube) is the Chat Box …but I like using the other one because I can post it on my blog.  Not sure what we’ll do tomorrow … I’ll let ya know.
