Cheers to New Beginnings

 Welcome to 2021. Let's hope for a better year..



Happy New Year's to Everyone. I am so grateful to be able to spend another year as your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. What will this year look like compared to last year? Well, it will still look different than it did before 2020. Due to the pandemic, I have more customers that prefer to do virtual classes over the in person classes. I am absolutely supportive and understanding of that need. To accommodate you all in this transitional phase, I am going to begin offering more classes online and virtually than in person. You will have options to purchase just directions, the stamps and dies or just a make and take packet.

With Sale -A -Bration and the new January-June mini catalog getting ready to go live on January 5th, there are certainly going to be many new stamps and classes to look forward to and of course with Sale-A-bration just around the corner, FREE stamps and paper!!

With the transition to more virtual classes, I will add back in a facebook live. You can catch it live or watch it on my Youtube channel. Are you subscribed to my Youtube channel? If not, be sure and hop over and subscribe. Hit the little bell and set your alerts to know when a new video is loaded. 

Want to know what is going on in the Barn right now? I have been in the process of remodeling the barn to make it more conducive for online classes and filming. I will be working hard to get all this done so January 5, 2021 when the new catalog goes live, we can start this year RIGHT!

Change is The Only Constant In Life

My business has undergone a lot of soul searching and serious researching in the last year. The last six months have certainly amped it to a whole new level. Why am I telling you this, you wonder? Well I am mainly letting you know because I am about to share some of the new ways in which I will move forward as the pandemic seems to be staying for awhile. Not, like a good friend but unwanted company, sigh.
Wouldn't it  be nice if this was the mask we had to wear? I think she is adorable. This is a print from Emily Winfield. I am still holding some in person classes, but I am incorporating the online aspect because there are too many risks for some to come to a socially distance class. Starting this week, (I started last week but we had some technological issues, so they are deleted) you will see me on Facebook, Tuesdays and Fridays at 8PM. I will share with you some cards and projects that I am working on, here in the barn. The second Sunday of the month is a marker for my in person, socially distanced classes. Each session is limited to six people. I will continue my birthday card class, for now it is the last Sunday with the exception of August.  I am not going to be able do one this month due to leadership summit through Stampin' Up!  I am super excited, even though it is virtual, it is going to be fun to connect with some of my friends.  This little gem just arrived from Stampin' Up! as a gift for being a part of the leadership summit!


I will share what is inside soon! In the meantime, if you do not have a demonstrator that you work with, please feel free to reach out to me. I am here to help with all your crafting projects. If you need some supplies, please use the host code to your right. This month, if you place an ONLINE  order with me for $50 or more, you will receive a pack of the 2020-2022 in color enamel dots.
