Happy Birthday to Me, Presents for You!

My birthday is this Sunday and I want to celebrate with you!!  So for the next week, my goal is to get at least 10 $100 orders to make one big, $1,000 Stampin’ Up! Party!!

This is how it works:  Normally, to get $25 in hostess benefits, you have to order $150, but at MY party, you only have to order $100!!  Once you do, you select $25 in free product OR any item at half price!  Everyone is a winner!!  And you may place as many $100 orders as you like!

Here is how to participate:

  1. RSVP to my party by sending me an email to tell me that are participating.
  2. Place your order one of these ways:
    1. Order at my Stampin’ Up! store and be sure to use Hostess Code YVNF62BN*
      1. After you have placed your order, email me and tell me if you want $25 in free product or a half-price item.  It’s on a first-come, first-served basis, so get your order in early so you get YOUR choice of benefit!!  The advantage of ordering online is that your order will be delivered direct to your home and you don’t have to wait until after my birthday for the order to go in.
    2.  Email or Call me (210.684.5800) with your order.  If you do that, then I will place the order for you.  When you email me, be sure to tell me if you want $25 in free product or a half-price item.

This is a GREAT WAY to get the hostess sets on pages 236-240, but you can actually order ANY products in the catalog!  And if you choose a half-price item instead, you could even get a Big Shot for half price!!

I am really excited by my Birthday Party and so glad that I can share the presents with YOU!!!  Be sure to get your order placed by November 25th!!

When I was growing up, I would give my parents my Birthday wish list at the same time as my Christmas wish list.  You can actually shop now for Christmas with this deal.  Here are some amazing products that make great gifts, especially for people that don’t have a lot of space for crafting (like RVers!):

  • Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit (134797)
  • Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit (134998)
  • My Paper Pumpkin Kits: single or multiple subscriptions (Click here)

No catalog?  No problem!  Here are links to pdf files for you (be patient when downloading – the Annual Catalog is kinda big!)

*Here is how to use the Hostess Code:

  • Go to my Stampin’ Up! store by clicking HERE or going to and clicking Shop Now
  • Either sign in or create an account (please do NOT click “no contact” because then I would not know that you ordered and I won’t be able to send you a card)
  • On your order page, in the lower left corner, there is a spot to put the hostess code.  Please use code YVNF62BN

RV Crafting – On Wheels

When I created RV Crafting, I knew that I would need to update the signage on my car but I hadn’t taken the time to do it.  And then I figured “why bother?” because I am planning on buying a new car soon.  But then I told myself to just do it and so I did!  It was nice out, so I sat at the picnic table and die cut the letters out of vinyl and stuck them on the car.  I did go ahead and die cut 2 sets, though, so when I get that new car, it will be easier!

Status Update

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while – I am still trying to get used to my new lifestyle.  I include a little update in my newsletters, but just in case you don’t subscribe (why not???), I wanted to catch you up a bit.

I started out at Admiralty RV Resort in San Antonio because the location was close to my handyman who helped me with some modifications to my fifth wheel.  But I love KOA and have decided to move in a couple of weeks to the Alamo KOA on the other side of town.

Then, at the end of February, I will be moving north to the Staunton/Walnut Hills KOA in Virginia – I will be a KOA Work Kamper Helper for the season!  It looks like a fun job and a beautiful park:

I hope to be able to provide my expertise as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator no matter where I go, so life should be interesting!!

And as for the house, the closing is scheduled for this Thursday – wish me luck that it all goes well!!

I’ll be back soon to show you some fun Christmas projects, and if you are in the San Antonio area, check out my Events!!
