Hey I "think" she means that she pre-ordered some of the holiday mini stuff FOR her first demo order. And on to some clarification because it IS confusing....

Demo orders can ONLY be used for merchandise for yourself, no customer orders and no customers can order anything from the mini until it's effective date. As demos we can always order one month prior.

The mini can be shown IN person any time after it's in your possession....some demos choose not to as to not affect their sales for the current month. It's up to you! It can NOT be shared online via link or email or any other type of digital means before it's effective date.

Projects we have made with our pre order items CAN be posted in public forums/blogs but we may NOT post pics of the products themselves. Only pictures of things we've actually made with them. So, I cannot show a pack of the new DSP but I can show the card I made with said DSP.

Clear as mud?

Sorry for the confusion! But yes, Mindy was right, I pre-ordered stuff for my first demo order. It was hard to control myself as I wanted it ALL!

Good to know that the mini can be shown any time as long as it's in your possession. I didn't realize this and thought I was going to have to keep it under lock and key for a few more weeks as several of my customers from my open house got excited for it just by me talking about it! Hoping that results in lots of sales!

My interview was this afternoon and I think it went pretty well, although, I'm not sure that I've got the job "in the bag" so keep your fingers crossed just a little longer! I should know by the end of the week because the school board meets on Monday and will want to take action on the vacancy at that point.

And just to clarify...everything on my demo order was for me!

I probably will get that job and then have no time to use all my new stamps and tools!

Glad the interview went well.....I need to find a new job!

Yup, you can show the mini any time you want as long as it's the hard copy and in person. Like I said, some demos don't in order to protect that month's sales. Say you had a workshop and people saw the mini, well then they may hold off ordering stuff for when the mini starts. Hurts the hostess and the monthly sales for the demo. It's just up to each demos since we all run our businesses a bit different

Good morning, everyone!

I love all the mini catalogs that SU puts out. I always find lots of things that I "need"! I can't wait until the new one goes "public". Better start saving my money. I swear if I was an SU demo, I would spend way more than I would make.

I worked in a jewelry store for about 8 years. The owner (it was a private company), let all the employees buy jewelry, Lladro's, Waterford crystal, etc. at cost plus 10%. I think it took me almost 6 months to bring home any money - lol! Oh well, our family/friends got some nice gifts for a while and so did I!

I hope everyone has a great day!

Yup! But after waiting 2 1/2 years to get a job in a school I'll take it, this subbing stuff is for the birds!

Oh, good Jen, I knew Mindy would know , I, too, didn't know we could show the hard copy. I was keeping it "under wraps" until Sept. 1st. Everyone knows you can go into the SU gallery, click on the mini catty section, and it will pull up. I love looking at all the creative ideas of everyone!

When I'm on the phone during the day, I'll pull up the galleries just to view while I'm talking to someone.

Have a great day everyone...I'll be stamping card fronts swaps for my 1st upline meeting on Friday night.

Yes, it's just the digital stuff that they are so strict about...mainly because it doesn't effect many demos if you show it to a few people in person BUT if you post it online potentially millions of customers can see it and it has a much bigger impact on other demo's businesses. I'm a hobby demo but there are demos out there who depend on their monthly income for their families!

Wow so much has gone on in the past few days. Happy belated birthday Pat. Congrats on your teaching job interview. Hope it all works out well. The new SU mini sounds exciting cannot wait til I get to see it. We still do not have any babies. Went to have an ultrasound Monday. Babies are running out of room. One is 5lbs. 10oz and the other is 5lbs. 15 oz. The doctor said he will be inducing her this week but we have not heard any thing yet. We go back to the doctor on Friday. So still waiting on pins and needles.

Hope all have a great week. I have missed chatting with you all.
Friday the 5th was my hubby and pregant daughters birthday.
Sat the 6th was my great nieces birthday so went to Belleville for a party.
Sunday I had my grandbabies Faith age 2 and Hunter 1. They went with us Sat and spent the night. So not much time for anything but spending time with them.
Then back to work Monday and here it is Wed. and I still need to do some crafting but haven't go there yet. Hope to go and do some in next few min.

Good morning, everyone!

Another cool morning....isn't it great?!?

How wonderful that the babies are almost 6 lbs. each! I'll bet your daughter is beyond ready to bring them into the world!

I hope everyone has a good day today!

I've been wondering about the babies, as I had not seen anything lately. My little granddaughter from Kansas is here. We stopped in where I work so my co-workers could see her. She's 6 wks. old. My son worked here during college. Many of us have kids about the same age...and they're "all our kids." I am fortunate to have a great group of co-workers!

Started on my card fronts for the swap. First started narrowing down on paper and ink so that I at least used current colors. After that, I got the bones of the card figured out. I'm making about 10-12 cards. My upline said there would be about 30 people there, but she usually takes about 8-10 fronts. Using the Easy Events stamp, Rich Razzleberry CS, Just Eat Cake DSP, and maybe some pearls or bling.

I got the job! I won't have my own classroom, I will be an aide, but at this point I will take it!

And ya know how I said I'll get that job and then won't have time to play with my new toys. Well I thought I'd have at LEAST tomorrow! NOPE! My order is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow while I have to go meet with the superintendent in the morning, then I have a "date" with my mom in the afternoon, and a jewelry party at night! Oh well, I WILL have the weekend to play and I can't wait!

I am so anxious for the school year to start now!

Congratulation Jen. I was praying and hoping for good news. Now you have a foot in the door hopefully will be a classroom open and you can be first in line. Hope you enjoy your busy day tomorrow. And have fun with your new toys on the weekend.

Pat sounds like your on the way to getting your fonts done. Congrats hope you enjoy.

No change in Hannah today but I notice that her belly has gotten bigger overnight. We go to the doctor tomorrow hope I have some news. Til then keep scrapping.

Good morning Ladies!
Congratulations Jen!! Have a great first day of work and enjoy all of your new toys!
I hope to get some cards made this weekend. I still have one small flower bed to redo and I think my hubby is going to hang the new front door! I feel like we are never going to get finished with this remodel. I still have sooooooooo much on our list but I think once he gets the door on, the bathroom finished and the porch painted we are going to call it quits for this year.
Have a great weekend and enjoy some of this beautiful weather!

Back from the Dr. Hannah is dialate to 3 and he did some moving of her cervic and said if she doesn't go in to labor over the weekend to be at the hospital Tuesday morning at 630 and he will induce her and our twins will be here.

Planning on doing some crafting over the weekend have some things to get done. Got new Creative Keepsake magazine today in the mail so relaxing and checking it out this evening. Hope you all have had a great day.

Good morning, Illinios stampers! Went over to the State Fair yesterday. My granddaughter from Kansas made her debut to all of our hog-showing friends. My DH even entered a pig in her name. LOL! Of course Reagan was up to showing, but she received her first state fair ribbon!! (red) I brought along my goodies that I received from my SU upline meeting the other night. Some cool ideas. After some of you receive your mini, I'll share some of those with you!

I was at the state fair yesterday too! I definitely ate WAY too much. Surprised a friend of mine for her birthday. She was there with her mom and her sister to see Still Kickin' perform in the Bud tent so I "just happend" to show up at the same time. Good times for all, except for my stomach, waaaay too much fried food! I'm regretting it today!

Today is going to be full of stamping and FINALLY getting to play with my new goodies!

Jen, oh too FUNNY!! Do you mean the Bud Tent in between the livestock barns and the grandstand? I was RIGHT near there!! Next year, before I go I'll mention something about it on SCS. It would be great to meet!!

With the way the weather was, I didn't get a taste of my FAVORITE fair food, elephant ears (oh wait a minute, we're pork producers--I should be saying the butterfly pork chop at our Pork Producers stand!)

And wow, they had five people die at the Indiana State Fair when the performance stand collapsed. Having been involved with our local town's open street fair, you can warn people--but they may not heed your warning. My prayers go out to those who died or were injured

I'll be going to the Fair next Sunday. I always go with my parents for the draft horse pulls but I don't think they are having them this year We are going to go anyway though. I need to try to get tickets to the Lady A concert!

I'm sure I"ll eat too much, I always do!

My aunt and uncle in law and hubby's cousins were AT the concert in Indy last night and were running to the car when the stage collapsed I guess! They were there! How scary! They are ok but witnessed the whole thing! Glad they called to let us know they were all right! Praying for those that were not so lucky!

But she was having a bad day with her memory. Did reconize us at first. But got better after visiting for a bit.

Pat-That's the one! Who knows, maybe we DID see each other and didn't even know it!

I'm headed back next Saturday as my Alma mater is having a "tent party" for their alumni and friends of the school. Then again Sunday evening for the Lady A concert...maybe I'll see you, Mindy!

I've got about 3 different projects going right now, I'm having a bit of stampers ADD with all my new stuff! I decided I needed to just take a break and then go back and finish one at a time!

Also, I am definitely thinking of those who were at the fair in Indy last night. I was actually at the Lady A concert at the fair LAST year that was cancelled due to the storms, it was VERY scary!

Good mornig Ladies! It sounds like you all had fun at the fair! I spent my weekend finishing up the landscaping around my house. I can officially say it is clean! Now just to plant! We also got the new front door installed and painted. (I think I am ready for a weekend with NOTHING going on so I can play !)
Have a great day!

Maybe I will see you Jen I still need to actually BUY the tickets though, lol! I wasn't sure if my parents really wanted to go and I need to find out if my hubby wants to go. I have to work Monday morning but not until 9:30 so I can sleep in a bit.

We were there quite a few years ago at the tractor pulls when I big storm came through and actually knocked the power out. It was sort of scary even though it wasn't really windy, just a huge downpour. Like I said, some of my family was at the concert in Indy and saw it all happen, scary! And I just saw on Facebook where a friend of mine from college lost a good friend there and had another one get seriously injured! Those poor people!!!!!

That was a tragic incident at the Indy fair!!! We haven't been to a fair for a couple of years. I am sure my hubby would love going for the fair food!!! I am not able to walk or stand more than about 5 to 10 minutes. I am having a Discogram next Wednesday morning at Memorial Hospital in Springfield. Then I see my Neurosurgeon in Springfield on the 29th. I guess we will see what will happen next. Other than that, I've been having BAD headaches and migraines almost daily for almost two months. My regular doctor is out of the country, but I have an appointment with her the first week of September. I think I will ask her to refer me to a neurologist. Thanks for asking about my husband. He is doing OK. He has good days, and bad ones. He's been on jury duty for the last couple of weeks, so he's been able to sleep in and just sit around. Then, we have a vacation coming up next month. That will be good for him, too.

We are awaiting our newest addition to the family. My daughter is due in about 2+ weeks. I can't remember if I've said that she is having her third boy. Her children are Alexys-15, Tristyn-12, Ashtyn-9, so she will have some good help with the new Lil' Peanut. This will be my husband and my 11th grandchild.

I hope everyone has a GREAT week!!! Decatur REALLY could use some rain!!!

Linda: Don't hold yourself off from seeing a Dr. on those headaches! One of the wives of one of my co-workers had some headaches, went in, and found she had a BRAIN ANEURYSM!! Here's prayers going out to you that you find something "good" out...

I have training Tues/Wed in Bloomington, so I'm taking along some of my "brown box" fun from SU. I bought a Big Shot, so I'll pack that along with the dies/folders that I bought. I've been a HUGE CB fan, so I'm sure I'll figure it all out. I will, though, kinda hate to get rid of my CB and nesties. Haven't decided what to do there...

Have a great day, everyone!! I'm off at 5:30 to one of my friends who just so happens to be a MASSAGE THERAPIST...ah....Calgon take me away....

Linda - I am praying that the drs are able to help you soon! Migraines are absolutely terrible! Keep us posted as your appointments come up so we can keep praying for you.

I am still in shock after seeing the video footage of the accident at the Indy fair! Those poor people and their families!

Pat - my newest sister in law just finished school for masage therapy. I am going to have to let her "practice" her skills on me soon!

Have a great evening everyone. I am hoping to get to spend a little time at my craft table tonight!
