Online Workshop 

If you participated in the September Online Workshop … your kits shipped yesterday.  We discovered that we had sent the kits to the wrong group of ladies (oops).  Laura and I feel really bad … and we’re very sorry!!   The positive side of that is you received an additional gift ๐Ÿ™‚     For the ladies that received the kits in error … you are welcome to keep them.

The October Online Workshop kits also shipped yesterday.

I’m still not sure about the date for the November Online Workshop … as soon as I can set a date I’ll post it.

12 Years ago 

I joined Stampin’ Up! on October 30th, 2002 and last Thursday marked my 12 year anniversary as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I was talking to my sister Kim last night and I ask her what she thought was the answer to why I’ve been a demonstrator this long … and she said  ”you love the product”.  It’s safe to say she is right … 12 years later I still love the product.  The excitement of NEW Product can send me over the edge (meaning it makes me extremely happy).   

For everyone that has supported me … Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!  (After typing that .. I’m wondering what does from the bottom of my heart mean? … I must Google that!)


I’ve not had a chance to go through the pictures and resize and edit them …but I do still plan on sharing them.   For those of you that wanted to buy access to the projects .. I have the Make n Takes,  the Pillows Gifts / Door Prizes and the Recipe Flip Book as an Online Class.  But if you’re a member of Chic n Clique you already have free access to them.  I have two more classes that will be available just as soon as I can get the videos edited.  Click here to see the list of Online Classes available.

I’ve not posted a write up about it … because I want to be clear that I’m only offering it because several of you ask very nicely if I would.  I’m happy to offer it …and I hope you enjoy the projects.


You guys know I’m a firm believer in setting goals … in fact it’s the one thing that keeps me on track.  After achieving my goal to reach one million in sales by December 31st, 2014 … I’m left without a goal and I don’t like it!  I keep going back and forth … and my problem always come back to I need to be able to measure it.  For example … let’s say I want to double my sales .. that’s something I can measure because I can look at the numbers.   I’ve had two ideas ….  

  1. Sell $200,000 within the Stampin’ Up! calendar year. 
  2. Double the number of members on Chic n Clique.

So, here’s your chance to make a suggestion …. got any ideas?  

12 Days of Christmas

I’ve had a few of you ask me when I’m starting the 12 Days of Christmas and what product I’m using.  The answer is …  I’m working on it.  I’ve not felt good and I’m not sleeping and my productivity is way down.  Every day I pray I’ll wake up feeling normal again … but so far no such luck.  But you know … the minute I do … it’s game on!  

Thanks & have a wonderful day!!
