Welcome September

September Host Code:

Be sure to use the above code if you visit my SU website.  If your order is over $150 please do NOT place it with the host code.  That qualifies you with your own party and I want yo to get the benefits from it.  Please email me if that's the case.

It has been a month since I have posted.  Where does the time go.  It was such a busy summer.  I had out of town company quite a bit over the summer.  We enjoyed the company but I must say I let my stamping go more than I should have.  I'm so ready to start stamping again and holding some classes.  I should say I should have stamped when I had company as she is a SU demonstrator also but we never seemed to find the time to do that.  Now it's back to business time!

First of all I added a Host Code at the top of this post.  I will leave this code through September 29th for your ordering convenience.  At that time I will put all of the names (of the people that placed an order in September) in a hat and let my hubby draw one.  I will contact you on the 30th by email....make sure your email address is on your online order.  If I don't hear from you on October 1st I will then pick another name.  The winner will get the rewards from the orders I received.  That means some FREE stuff as long as I get $150 in orders.

If you are not aware let me be the one to let you know that the SU Holiday Catalog is live now.  That means it is ready to be ordered from.  If you need a holiday catalog please let me know.  I would love to be able to help you with your stamping needs.


This is such a great holiday catalogholiday catalog filled with so many fun things.  Please don't miss out on seeing this.  Like I said if you don't have  catalog please email me and I will be happy to get one to you.  You can also click on the catalog above and visit my website.  


What a great stamp set.  How can you get it?  Host a $300 workshop or place a $300 order and it is yours for FREE.  That is above and beyond the regular stampin rewards.


If you have never tried My Paper Pumpkin now is the time.  You can get 50% off your first box.  What a great savings.  All you have to do is visit the Link to subscribe.  Just remember when it ask who your demonstrator is please put Rita Holmes so I can get credit.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Please let me know if I can be of any help to you.  I love to share my love of stamping.

Hello from South Carolina

It has been awhile since I have posted.  I have been busy and also took a few days to come to South Carolina to visit a sick friend.  It has been so nice to see her and has been such a blessing for both of us.  Since she has gone to bed early tonight I thought I would take the time to post. 

I want everyone to be aware of this being the last week in July which means it is the last week to take advantage of the current specials.  Instead of posting them all again I urge you to scroll down and check them out again. 

Also don't forget to use the hostess code on the right side of the blog to order.  By ordering with the hostess code you will only pay 10% shipping and it will arrive at your door.  Any size order can be ordered. 

Watch for news coming about the NEW Holiday Catalog coming.  It will go live the first of September. 

I will be home from South Carolina Tuesday and will post within a couple days after that.  Everyone be blessed and have a great week.

It Has Been Way Too Long!!!!

It has been too long is an understatement.  I has been over three years since I have posted on my blog.  That's no excuse and I think it is about time to try to get on the bandwagon and post on my blog.  I will tell you right now that it won't be everyday.  Not even sure if it will be every week but I am going to try to keep it up better than I had before.

I surely can't bring you up to date on my life for the last three years.  I will say that I work for the city school district in dining services (glorified name for the lunch lady).  I also am the secretary for my church which is only 8 hours a week or so.  Of course I still have my Stampin' Up business which is what I love to do but have a hard time finding time for it sometimes.  I have roughly a little over a month before I am back at school working so I am hoping to get myself acclimated into doing some blogging.

Stampin' Up went live with their new annual catalog about a month ago.  I have added  a picture of the catalog along the sidebar of my blog which you can click on and go to my website to browse the catalog.

The only class I have had this summer is my monthly Wednesday night class.  Here are a few cards that we did in class to showcase a few of the new stamp sets in the catalog.


I hope you stick around with me for awhile.  I will be posting some specials that are going on in another post.  I will also post my classes as well as other little inklings that I come up with.

Have a great day and God Bless!

I can't believe it has been SIX YEARS!

It was SIX years ago today that I had my cancer surgery.  I just went back in my blog to the 2008 archives and read my cancer journey.  The blog journey starts on March 10, 2008.  I read through most of it.  I cried a lot in it.  I also went and read all the comments.  I had the best support team ever.

Here is the big question I want to answer for everyone:
What has CANCER done for ME?
I know that sounds odd but CANCER did a lot for me. 
1.  It made me a stronger person today.
2.  It made me open my eyes and appreciate everything around me.
3.  It showed me that a good attitude will help you overcome a lot of things.
4.  It showed my my need for the Lord.
5.  It made my Faith stronger.
6.  It gave me the need to help others fighting this terrible disease.
7.  It showed me at I am a leader.
8.  It gave me the will to fight no matter what.
I now stay very active in many different things.  Here is some of the things I do to keep busy:
1.  Work part time in the cafeteria's in our public schools.
2.  Sell Stampin Up and have classes in my house for rubber stamping
3.  Teach Sunday School to 3rd & 4th grade children.
4.  Director of VBS at my church.
5.  Sit on the Butler County Board for the American Cancer Society
6.  Have a team in our local Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society and also serve on the committee.
7.  Reach to Recovery volunteer for the American Cancer Society. 

These are all passions of mine.  I love staying busy and being active.  I can say that most days I feel great but still have some side effects of the chemo and cancer journey.  That's okay!!!!  I am alive and living my life.  What better thing can a girl ask for? 

I have a wonderful family and the greatest friends anyone can ask for.  I am a very blessed individual and give thanks for that daily. 

Have a blessed day!!!
