I have had so much fun stampin samples with my new stamp sets and this awesome Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper!  It is a must have an almost puts you in mind of Spring & Summer.  In Central MN we can really use some hope of warmer weather to come.  It is a sad day when you thin 10 above is a heat wave.  I made a slip on my last post… the Love card was sent to my Top Ten Demo's not my Hostesses.  It features the Love you Much bundle which is 20% off only until January 31.

I look forward to all of the events I plan and hold, but the Hostess Appreciation event is very special to me.  It is a time for me to appreciate the heart of my business, without hostesses I wouldn't be able to do what I love and that is teaching stamping and sharing my passion for Stampin' Up! 

With two catalogs per year I have been holding the Hostess Appreciation twice a year. This Saturday I will honor them with a Brunch followed by awards, gifts and of course some great stamping!

Love the non traditional Christmas colors of this card, pink pirouette and
chocolate chip.  Simple yet very elegant.  This card was sent by long time childhood friend and hostess Bev Brakke.  Bev has been a hostess almost as long as I have been a demonstrator which is 10 years.

Christmas Gift Received

What is more fun that stamping a wonderful project for a friend as a gift, having your friend stamp one for you!  Just before Christmas a group of stamping friends/customers had a Christmas Dinner with an exchange and invited me it was very special.  

We had a wonderful potluck dinner with the table set for royalty. Barb Larson was our hostess.  Then we toured her stamping room.  It is always so interesting to see other stamp rooms and one always goes home with some fun new way to store something.

Then we retired to the fireplace room where we enjoyed laughter, tears and gifts.  Each gift was amazing and I wanted to share with you the one I received.  Gail Barber was the creator of my gift, the funny part is when she called to order the supplies for it (Decor Elements & Designer Series Paper) I thought after I placed the order I should get some of those to make some cool frames.  So I was very excited to receive the gift and have enjoyed it very much through the holiday season!  Thanks Gail!

I can't wait for all of you to see the exciting Decor Elements that will be out with the New Catalog!  Watch my Blog on January 19 for all the new catalogs to post
