First things first – where have I been! At my crafting table working frantically to get some gift packs of handmade cards together to sell at a fundraiser on May 4th. This is an annual fair that our Family and Community Education (FCE) clubs in the Hilo area put on to raise funds to enable us to serve our community through educational programs. For this fair, I work hard to make some original designs that make beautiful cards – it’s what I do, after all!
But now the papers are all cut, the stamping is all done and all that’s left is to put the cards together. I can breathe a bit better as I know that I’ll get them done in time. So for a short time I can focus on the administrative side of my Stampin’ Up! business.
The big thing going on right now is the run up to the new Stampin’ Up! catalog and that means things are retiring! The list is starting to show items already sold out and one or two new sold out items show up every day. Today’s highlight is that the gorgeous Lemon-Lime Twist Cardstock is sold out. What’s next? I certainly don’t know. But I do know that I have already ordered those items that are retiring that I don’t want to do without. One of those is the Paper Piercing Tool (126189). I use that for a lot of things around my Craft Room, and not just for paper piercing. So I decided I needed a back up. Something else that I use occasionally is Glossy White Cardstock (144240). When that’s the cardstock I want, I don’t want to have to find a substitute. So I’ve stocked up on that a bit. Not too much as my Craft Room is small these days. But, hey, what’s one more pack of cardstock?!
In the next day or two, I’m going to place my order for the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Catalog to be sent to my customers. If you don’t yet get a catalog from me and would like one, please send me an e-mail and let me know!
That’s it for now – I’m off to the gym and then other chores I’ve been neglecting!
