Family Christmas

We celebrated Christmas at our daughter and son-in-law's new home. We were able to have everyone there, but the granddaughters had to leave early for another family Christmas on their dad's side. I've included a picture of the whole family as well as one of my husband and myself. The 4 girls belong to #1 daughter in the front, Dylan's mom is #2 daughter (she is holding him) and Cooper the cat belongs to #3 daughter in the back.

*Mark this date on your calendars-Sat Jan 22nd. I am trying to clear some space in my stamp room and am sorting through 8 1/2 yrs of retired Stampin'Up! "stuff".

Here's the deal: purchase the retired items at full price (minus tax and shipping) and receive 1/2 of your retired product total FREE from the current idea book and catalog. EX: buy $50 retired product, get $25 free new stuff. You only pay tax and shipping on the current products ordered. This is a great way to stock up on paper, ink, ribbons, etc. Not to mention those Bigshot dies and embossing folders you NEED!

I am combining this sale with my annual hostess appreciation party for my 2010 stamp club members and hostesses. They get first chance at the sale from 9a-11a, and anyone may shop from 11a-2p. I will have food, make and take projects, and door prizes. You will get an extra ticket in the drawing if you RSVP and if you bring a friend that is new to me.

And as an added bonus, I am holding the order to submit until 1/25 when Sale-A-Bration starts. So if your current product total is $50 or more, you get to choose one item FREE from the SAB mini catalog.

The sale will be at my home in Pleasant Hill, call or email for directions if you need them.

Missing in action

I have been terribly remiss about posting and have several (excuses), er reasons why.

#1 Our desktop computer died and my laptop does not accept my compact flash card from my camera and I haven't been able to even load pictures directly from my camera even though I tried to use the installation cd that came with the camera. I used to load pictures to the desktop, then to a flash drive, then to my laptop. REALLY!!

#2 I had surgery (again!!) Nov 8th for a torn meniscus in my right knee. We spent Nov 9th-16th in Branson without my computer access. I recovered well and am back to work, thanks for asking!

#3 My sister came to visist for 10 days and I just didn't have time to post. Of course she's been gone for 2 weeks, but duh what can I say?
