My new grandbaby!

So most of you know that I have taken a hiatus from my stamp business because my daughter had a baby!

I love being self employed so that I can take time for my family!

I have been helping her with the baby, her two year old, laundry, cleaning and cooking!

You know I will be very sad to leave them next week.

I will arrive back home on November 16th very teary eyed I am sure!

Enjoy these photos and I will see you all soon!

I miss Project Life, do you?

I hate to admit that I have not worked on my Project Life albums in over a month!

I was preparing to leave to go to Texas for the birth of my grandson so I was busy doing other things.

But this video from Stampin' Up! today reminded me how much I miss it!

I look forward to getting back to my Project Life albums especially with lots of pictures of my grandson!

Need to get back to your albums?

Did you know I am having a baby?

Well, I am not having a baby my daughter is!  And I am so excited that I am having another Grandbaby!  This will make Eight!  With the potential to have more!  I bet you can just see me trying to get ready!  I think I am nesting!  LOL!  And since I live in Arizona and my daughter is in Texas I bet you are wondering what that means!

Well, I have been getting all of my Online card kits as ready as I can ahead of time.
Doing laundry and packing.
Doing meal prep for hubby while I am away.
I think you get the picture!

The challenge is that babies come when they are ready!  Not when Mimi can get there!  I will head out as soon as I feel it is close to delivery time!

If you email me you may get an autoresponder that says I am out of the office having a Grandbaby!

So, if you are in my Online Classes please place your orders before 
Thursday October 8th That will help me sooooo much!  The good news is that your kits will go out the door much sooner than in previous months!  Together this may happen as we move forward!

Weekly Deals and What's New with Stampin' Up!

As a 13 year Breast Cancer Survivor this is near and dear to my heart.  When I was diagnosed my husband was out of work and we did not have insurance.  Thru organizations similar to BCRF I was able to receive treatment and be cancer free!  
To show our support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Stampin' Up! is going PINK . . . or at least our October boxes are! And because we know our subscribers want to share the love too, Stampin' Up! will be making a donation on their behalf to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). The thousands of women and men suffering from breast cancer today depend on us. No institution can conquer this disease alone. Together, we can. 
Stampin’ Up! will donate
  • $1 for every active Paper Pumpkin subscriber.
  • Plus, an additional $1 for every new subscriber.
Together, we will make a difference!
