LOL!! Just been busy!! Yesterday I had to stamp/emboss 1/2 a poster board that is the base for a huge card the Home and School is going to have the school students sign and give to the church (they take up an offering every week to help support the school).
And it is the start of basketball season~DH is the liason between our little private school and the city league. Which means I have lots of paperwork and typing to help DH get all his coaches lined up, sponsors, teams etc.

I think today I'm stamping 300-400 bookmarks. Again, for the students to write a note on and give to the church members. Not sure how I got conned into that one!! Trying to get a hold of my old upline to borrow her stamp stamp set too so that two of us can work on this.

I also have a technique class on the 19th - need 3 for that. The in-home classes are so much more fun.
Good for you for keeping up your classes!! When I quit being a demo I had wanted to continue with classes, but that hasn't happened!! That work thing is nice for some extra $$ but takes a lot of time away from my crafting!!

Good morning, ladies. Class went well yesterday. I came home with no extra card kits. There are always a few ladies who make two of each, but I still usually end up with a few left, but yesterday at the end of class, one lady bought all that were left. Gotta love that.

I've also been taking some of my used stamps, etc. to sell. It's always nice to bring home less than I took.

Good for you Melody!! It sounds like your classes are a real sucess!! (and I gave up...I just put my "get rid of stamps" back with all the others...If I ever hold a class again, I'll pull some out and hopefully get rid of some)

Been working on trying to find my house under all the dust and cobwebs that have taken over the past month or so! BUT! I decided that I NEED to stamp SOMETHING today!! hehe....too much cleaning isn't good for the soul you know!! LOL

I'm glad your classes are so successful, Melody!

I just try to stay ahead of the requirements. I call the requirement "stamp chores." So they are just as important as other things in my life! haha. Yes, Church adn School takes presidence. But I am sure to volunteer a little less, deligate a little more...to be sure I have stamp time.

I need to get better at that (especially since it seems that I'm getting called into work more often!)

I actually did TWO of the challenges today!! It has been FOREVER since I have done one!! Took the pooch for a walk and came up with a fairly quick idea!! (hmmm....should probably do that more often!! LOL!)

Good morning, ladies. I have a cuttlebug class in 20 min. and the 1st lady usually gets here 15 min. early, so the doorbell should ring any minute. Enjoy your day.

How did your class go, Melody? I spent the day running a few errands and doing a little shopping (I was feeling rather frustrated by an errand that did not go well.....seems that retail therapy made me in a better mood!! YIKES!! I now need to start playing with all the goodies that found their way into my cart(s)....)

Class was great. I had 3 ladies. These ladies are some of my regulars and a bit more experienced stampers. They always seem to like all the projects, so they are good for my ego, too.

These small classes are so much more fulfilling and fun than the big group - maybe because they are more personal because of the size of group. And they are paying more, so you know that they want to be here.

That's nice. I think I need to make a goal of having some classes after the new year. Just no way that I can even think about a class with the holidays starting up soon

So...what are your thoughts on the SU news...they are giving customers a cling mount option. haha.

I thought it was funny since a year ago they claimed that wood mount was very important to the company!

Yeah...I think that they are finally starting to realize that people are not stuck in the rut that they are!! I have to admit, I'm liking my cling mount stamps more and more...so much less space (as of right now, I store mine in large 3 ring binders by company...have a couple of binders that fit a few companies in and I just put in a divider with the name on the tab)

Are any of you planning on playing VSN this weekend? I'm going to see if I can fit some in.

Do you know that I've NEVER done a VSN? It always seems that they occur on weekends that I'm just totally booked!! Youngest has TWO choir performances tomorrow. I don't know about Sun. It seems that there was something on the schedule, but I can't recall at the moment. Hmmm....oh!! I think it was to buy baseball uniform stuff, new shoes, and jeans for the boys. But I might do that today instead.

Don't see tonight happening. Will go shopping after school (school lets out at 12:30 on Friday's for us) and will meet up with all the rest of the family (IL's) for dinner while we are down the hill

One of these days I'll get to do one...I think I'll (finally) finish cleaning my office today so that I can find some inspiration! heehee

Well, I managed the 4 Friday VSN challenges, but that's it. Did the IC on Saturday and today I made the 3 samples for my technique class on Thurs.

I've totally neglected my blog. Better go put up a post.

You've gotten a lot done (I'll have to check out the blog!). I managed to fill my trashcan this weekend with no end product. Got called into work last min for Monday, and again today. Will probably have to work also on Wed and I know for sure on Thurs. Fri I'm in charge of the 3rd grade thanksgiving party. Not sure when I'm going to work on that! LOL....ahhhh......such is my out of control life!!

Helloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.............. ..........! Anybody out there?

Sure is quiet around here. I had a great class yesterday. Squeezed 6 ladies around my kitchen table. They are really loving the technique classes. One lady only came for the 1st half hour, because she had another place she needed to be (grandkids).

Today, I had to go in to work... (gasp!) It has been a long, long time since they asked me to work. I was proofing some documents. And most of the day was just sitting around waiting for the next thing to do. I'm so glad I took a book along.

Did you know that the problem with being the on-call therapist is that they actually expect you to work if they call you?!! Last week I was schedule for ONE day of work. I worked EVERYDAY. Not fun. As of right now, I'm scheduled to work Mon and Wed of next week (wanna bet I work Tue also?!!) I'm just telling my self that it is extra money for Christmas. But it is really putting a cramp in my house work, my laundry pile and my CRAFTING!! (more $$ for the holidays...more $$ for the holidays....)

Glad to hear that your classes are going so well, Melody!! That's great!! Maybe I'll find the time to come up ;with something in the new year.....(crossing my fingers)

I have one for you! Over all he is a good dog. Just requires A LOT of exercise! (my family would be horrified. But guess who is the one who ends up taking care of him the most?!)

Have a day off today. Trying to get some Christmas decorations up. I put pictures up on my blog of my favorite wreath that I made a couple of years ago.

Ok...back at it

My senior class is off this week, so I got to stamp a bit today. I made my 2nd card for next week's class. I only have 2 more classes with these ladies. Then my only classes will be at my house. That is so much nicer.

I got more toys today. I ordered from ScrapbookingAlley. I got both create a flake Spellbinders, a bunch of plates, both regular and extended for my big shot and one bigz die. I don't have any of the XL sizzix dies yet, but I do have 2 12" spellbinders borders dies and the long plates will make using those so much easier.

Are their prices good? I bought a couple of new dies from JoAnn's today. Had a coupon (way over spent still!) and the dies were 40percent off. If I. Ould have kept my grubby hands off everything else I would have been fine! Lol

Yes, they have great prices. I'm not sure if they are introductory prices or not - they list everything 20% until the end of Nov., but they did the same thing last month (until end of Oct.), but that 20% is off their prices, not the msr price. (i.e. create a flake was $13.59)

They don't always have all the dies. Just a couple of days before I placed my order (Friday), the create a flake I was out of stock, but then when I checked again, it was in.

The first time I ordered from them, shipping was free, but now it's free on orders over $100. But as I was adding things to my cart, the shipping stayed at $4.95, so I don't know if that would have changed when I finalized if I hadn't been over $100. They ship FedEx and it came from Grand Rapids, MI, although their website lists Irvine, CA. Shipped yesterday & was here today.

They carry a lot of stuff, not just paper crafting. I also got monomulti last time I ordered for about $2.50 each.

(First let me apologize for the negative thumb...I was typing from my phone and must have hit that button!! hehe)

I'll have to go check them out. Irvine is not that far from me so shipping could be QUICK! hehe

I have yet to play with my snowflake die....have a project in mind but it it is not a "high" priority one....so it will get shoved off to the side for a while!
