So hard to say goodbye...

Well, I am finally purging my discontinued stamps sets. It's been awhile since I've been up to doing it.  If you will be joining me for the open house this week, some of them could be yours (sniff, sniff).  Back to purging.   Paper is next.

Happy, Happy New Year!
Welcome to 2016!  Are you ready to embark on a new year full of creativity?  If so, then please join me on creative journey.  I am excited to get started exploring new things, and new artful ways of doing things.  I won’t commit to New Year resolutions (we all know what happens to those), but I will commit to doing what I love and enjoy doing it.  I am open to new ideas, mine and yours, and I am excited to see where it takes us.  So, if you’re ready…let’s get it started!
Just Thought You Should Know…
The last day to order from the current Occasions Catalog is January 4, 2016.  If you haven’t had a chance to order those items you just have to have, make sure you do so by that date.  The best way to order is through my web store:  At this site, you can access all current catalogs, promotions and events.
The Year End Sale also ends on January 4, 2016.  There are amazing sales on lots of creative stuff so don’t miss this one!  You can view all of the items at the above mentioned site
On January 5, 2016 is a pretty fabulous day in Stampin’ Up! land.  The new Occasions Mini Catalog – Handmade from the Heart and Sale-A-Bration Catalog both go live! 
The Occasions Mini Catalog – Handmade from the Heart will be available from January 5 – May 31, 2016.  If you have not seen it yet…it is amazing!  I can hardly breathe!  The opportunities for creativity are endless.  The colors, the designs, the products are inspiring.  Self-control will be an issue…I’m just sayin’.  You will be able to view the catalog on my website starting January 5, if you don’t have one in in your hands already.
And if that is not enough…Sale-A-Bration will begin the same day!  From January 5 – March 31, 2016 you can earn FREE stamps, paper, and other accessories when you shop, host an event, or join the Stampin’ Up! Family.  There are a few items that can be earned only until February 15th.  What is great about this catalog is that the items co-ordinate with the new Occasions Catalog.
So, make sure you book your events early!  Remember events include in-home demonstrations or totally hands on workshops, and catalog parties.  Catalog Parties allow you to host an event anywhere in the country!
Wanna Play?
So are you ready to have some creative fun?  I’ve been telling you how wonderful the new Catalogs are, so now is the time for you to come and play…
2016 New Year’s Open House

Please join me for an opportunity to play with my “new toys”!  I’m in creative overdrive and I can’t wait to share with you.  Make-n-takes, demos, door prizes.

Prizes will be available.  RSVP no later than January 13, 2016 (so enough projects may be prepared). Looking forward to seeing you!
