I have had a problem with my site and could not log in until just now.  So it has been forever since I have posted anything.  So much to share.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years !

I can hardly believe it but Stampin' Up!s Leadership conference in San Antonio is less than 2 weeks away and I GET TO GO!  I have never been to Leadership before and am sooooo looking forward to it.

I will be posting as I prepare to go and will post from conference if I can find time.  I understand it is one busy but very exciting and fun experience.  I can not wait to share it with you.

Home from Georgia

We had a great week in Georgia with daughter Malinda and her family.  The time went so fast I could hardly believe it.
Of course, we just had to do some stamping while I was there.  We started some Christmas cards.  It was a lot of fun having my daughter and grandchildren close by to help.
Now it is back to work on Monday.  But I also need to finish getting ready for some workshops and classes.  I have a workshop this coming Tuesday and one in September with some friends at work.  I also have to get some halloween and Thanksgiving cards/projects ready for a class at the library in Plymouth, Ohio in September.
Therefore it is time to go blog hopping for inspiration.

New Camera

Last weekend we went shopping and I finally selected a new camera.  After a lot of research and talking to many people about what camera they used, how they liked it, and why, I finally settled on a
Nikon D3100.  Now I am busy learning how to use it. 
It was much easier to upload my photos but I need to do a better job of editing and cropping.  Got lots to learn.

Going To Georgia

We are going to Georgia this coming Friday to see our daughter and her family.  She wants to do some Stampin' Up while we are there so I have been playing with some of the new stamp sets.  I hope she likes them.  This one is Snow Much Fun #122560 wood mount or #122562 for clear mount.
I love the clear mount stamps from Stampin' Up.  All of the quality and image details we were used to and loved and the ease of stamping and improved storage.  It is great.

Holiday Mini

I am really getting excited about my upcoming World Card Making Day event. I have ordered some great new products that I can hardly wait to share with my friends. October can't get here soon enough.
I have never done Halloween cards in the past but the new sets in the IB&C and the new Holiday Mini have inspired me. Of course blog surfing and see things the other SU demos are creating gets me going too.
I finished some cards this weekend and planned to post them now but my computer is trying to die on me and I was unable to upload from my camera to the computer. Hopefully I can get it fixed soon and get them posted.
I am also counting down til Christmas. It is 107 days til Christmas! It is the most important day of the year and I have already started working on cards for family and friends as well as gifts and projects to share with my stampin' friends.
Well I guess I better get to working on the camera computer link or I'll never get any pics posted.

Stampin'Up convention

I am so jealous. So many great, creative, demos are getting ready to go to Salt Lake City for the annual Stampin' Up convention. One of these days I will get to go. I would love to meet Sherril Graff. I follow her blog and admire her work and the way she lives her life.
She offers lots of advice on building your business to adopted demos. She heads up Late Night Stampers and there are many talented and sharing demos there. Check it out!

I love the DSP used on this card. You can not see it here but I used crystal effects on the white dots for dimension and it looks great in real life.
