I Miss My Craft Table! But got some goodies!

I still have yet to finish the last Betsy Bluebell card!

I got an email on Thursday concerning the Stampin Up party I was suppose to have on the 19th of March. The demo's brother had died suddenly in a sky diving accident earlier in the month and the party got cancelled. Well the email was saying I could have the party Saturday. SATURDAY?? WHAT?? Of course not one to turn down the chance of free stuff I agreed. The lady who runs the Stamp Club I go to once a month was nice enough to say we could have it at her church and sent the email out to the Stamp Club members. I had no idea how many would come and I figured on a total of maybe 6, so I was surprised when we had a total of 12!

I ended up having a decent party and got quite a bit of free stuff. Of course I ordered quite a bit too. I haven't gotten any Stampin Up stuff in awhile so I had a good list going, and what the heck the Sale-A-Bration was going on and for every $50 worth of product you ordered you got a free item.

I ended up ordering

1/2" Circle Punch

Boho Blossom Punch

Bird Punch

Butterfly Punch

Decorative Label Punch

ing on the Cake stamp set

Eat Chocolate stamp set

And got free the Sweet Summer stamp set

Bliss Stamp set

Then for being the fantastic hostess *okie cracks up laughing* I got the Punch a Bunch set free from the demo.

Then my party got me the following:
Hostess Lev 1 Punch Potpourri

and Hostess Lev 3 Occasional Quotes

Define Your Life stamp set, I have been wanting this one for over two years!

Butterfly Prints stamp set

Owl Punch

Well last night I was going to finish the last of the Betsy Bluebell cards but that went astray. I had gotten some envies that were on sale at Staples and decided I needed to put them away in the DVD Snapware cases I keep envies in. I had to move a little cabinet to get to the cases and then decided I needed to move a few things on my wire shelving *okie sighs deeply* WHY OH WHY DID I DO THAT?

I hit one of the little black things that holds the wire shelves together and BOOM, another one went loose and then another one. I tried in vain to get them back togehter without having to take it all apart...notice I said in vain. I spent two hours taking everything out of the wire shelving, adding more zip ties to hold it together better and then putting everything back. At least I did reorganize a little and make it more convenient to get to things I use more often so I don't have to move the little cabinet as much.

So anyway, hopefully I can finish the last Betsy card tonight!! But then again I have a Human Rights Committee meeting at 5:30 and not sure how long it will last. I need a vacation where I can just lock myself in my house and craft!!


  1. You are going to have so much fun with all your new toys. I have the same luck when I want to craft. Things draw us in too many directions.

  2. WOW! You sure got a lot of new loot!! I LOVED the days I was in a Stampin' Up monthly club. Enjoy your new things. I can't wait to see what you create.
