Last Chance

Well it is that time of year again, to say good bye to some of the products we have grown to love in the last year with Stampin' Up! Why do I want to sing "So long, Farewell "from the Sound of Music?

Probably because I went to bed last night and that thought was in my head. So many products are leaving, that if the Von Trapp Family was presenting products as they fled the stage, they would all need to come back 100 times! Okay, so if you DON'T know me, I speak music, movies and book quotes etc. BUT, back to the task at hand, lots of products are on sale and lots are leaving FOREVER, so get them now because it is truly while supplies last! If you need help ordering, I am always available to assist! You can reach me via email or text at (502)639-1934. Happy Shopping! Don't Forget to use the host code listed on the right ZN962WAK if you want to receive a free gift from me!

Spread Joy, Not Germs

While you may not know this has been happening, mainly because I am a behind the scenes kind of person, I have a heart for helping others. One group that I dearly love to help is the senior citizens. I started stamping back in 1997, and my dear mentor, Sue Johnson, who would be celebrating her 78th birthday today, would take me to the Ken Ellis Senior Center to let me teach them. Fast forward 30 plus years and here we are. I am sharing a campaign that is close to my heart and combines my love for paper crafting.

This campaign is something all paper crafters can participate in locally, where ever you may be located. My team, the Barn Good Stampers, have been creating cards and donating them to the local nursing and assisted living homes in our area. Normally, once a month, I would be teaching at these facilities all my lovely senior Barn Queens. Here is a picture just a month ago, so hard to believe, of some of my ladies stamping with me. These are just a sprinkle of the ladies I get to teach every month, who are currently quarantined and missing our fun paper play dates.
Because we cannot be together this month, I had my team, make and donate cards, so that every week, our seniors, even those who might not normally come to class, get a card every week from the employees at the centers where they reside. What does Joy look like? Look above and look at the heart of my team and the donations of their talents and time to help me, help these seniors feel loved and missed while we socially distance. This is one of the reasons I love what I do.

Happy Birthday Sue! Love and Miss you every day.

Paper Pumpkin is the Best! Here is Why!

Why is Paper Pumpkin a fun crafting solution?
Every Month, a little kit of happiness arrives on your doorstep. This month, the kit will be focused on the family occasions we celebrate. You can use it to connect with any family member. It’s perfect for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, sharing love with a son or daughter, or reaching out to a sibling who lives far away. The kit contains supplies for 8 cards including envelopes. The coordinating Colors: Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz, Shaded Spruce, Soft Sea Foam. If you don't have these inks or card stock and would like to purchase some, to go along with the kit, then shop in my store using the host code posted ZN962WAK to the right. One of the great things I enjoy about the kits, is that I can sit down and craft and not have to think. I don't have to do design work, but I can make alternate projects if I choose to.  Which I do, and I love to share them! Stampin' Up! shares a video every month on youtube and they include a pamphlet with instructions

If you need an added incentive, there is a unique stamp set and ink spot in each kit. As you finish up the kit, you will have those to keep and use. In order to receive a kit, you need to subscribe by the 10th each month. Today is April 8th, what are you waiting for? Try it out now, and see how much fun you can have!

It's Christmas Time at Glitter and Glam Girls Blog Hop

This is the most wonderful time of the year, right? With Christmas just 22 days away, before you know it, we will be celebrating the year 2020. It almost doesn't seem possible. The last few years have snuck by so fast, but this year, I literally can't remember details, because so much has happened. I won't miss some of those things, but I will  be ready to bring in the new this year. With that being said, I whipped up a cute little card that could easily be an invitation to a New Years dinner. Or a  card to say, "Hey, so glad I had you in my life this year!" Another idea? Happy birthday to You! Cheers for another year! No matter which way you choose to use this card, I hope it makes you smile.
It goes together really quickly as it is a pretty clean and simple card. The focal point of this card is of course, the two glasses that you can almost hear clinking together!
The shimmer from the Wink of Stella that I colored over the glasses, cannot be photographed to truly show how beautiful it looks. I am going to zoom in and see if I can show you the glasses much closer up. Look at all the sparkle! How festive!

I hope that each and every one of you had a blessed Thanksgiving Holiday! Remember that this is the season for Joy but there are many who struggle, try to help lift their spirits as we finish out this year.  I cannot wait to see what all the other gals have created this month, be sure to give them a shout out as to how well you like their projects. I am sure they will be gorgeous!
