It's been awhile.... I'm sorry

I'm sorry. Can I use the excuse I've been busy. 

Let's recap.  In December I went to Flagstaff, AZ to spend Christmas with the kids.  Our son came in from North Carolina and we all had so much fun. 

In January I have been making wedding invites for my daughters wedding.  I am still making them. I am also planning her bridal shower and being creative. Also, in January I kicked off my monthly Scrapbook class and I had two people sign up.  So I am excited for February class. I have two already schedule to attend.  January also kicked off one of Stampin' Up! s biggest yearly sales event.  Here is the low down. 
  • For every 50.00 in product you get to pick a item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.
  • Host an event and have sales of 250.00 or more you get 25.00 extra in rewards that's 50.00 in free product.
  • Sign up as a demonstrator and your kit is $99.  You choose 125.00 worth of product. PLUS, you get to pick 2 stamp sets from either annual or occasions catalogs. Don't want to be a demonstrator...
  • Purchase a kit for $99 and choose 125.00 worth of product, plus you still get to pick 2 stamp sets from either annual or occasions catalogs.  You are not obligated to sell, purchase anything more.
