And the winner is…

Remember earlier this month when I asked you all to comment on my post (you can see it here) by guessing what my “WORD” for 2017 is?  Well, my word is SIMPLIFY!  Nobody got it right, although you were close… with Plan and Organize… both part of my plan to Simplify!

comments, winner, stampin' up!,

There are 2 winners!

Because apparently very few actually read my blog… and there were only two responses… Your are BOTH winners!  Watch your mailbox for a little something from me! And Thank You for reading and commenting!  Now, back to my planning and organizing in order to simplify my life…  😉

2017… New Year… New Plan, stampin' up!, new year, new plan, paper crafting fun, new classes, sale a bration

Well, I didn’t exactly end 2016 or get through my holidays as planned, but that’s the way it goes sometimes!  So… New Year, New Plan!

Do you make a New Year’s Resolution? Or do you go with one Word for the Year? I usually have a LONG list of resolutions that tend to mimic my To-Do List… and seems to be never ending! So this year I’ve decided to go with a Word. ONE WORD! Can anyone guess what it might be? (post on my blog under comments – I’ll pick a random winner next week)

What I am most excited about {DRUM ROLL PLEASE} is my NEW Stamp’n Color Club!  YES…CLUB! You can read all about it HERE. It brings together two of my favorite things… Stamping and Coloring! It gives me the perfect opportunity to share my love (or obsession) with you while introducing some of Stampin’ Up!’s newest products!   

Fast and Fabulous Cards is the new name for my monthly card class. It’s undergone a slight makeover – which from the name you should be able to guess – the cards will be a bit less detailed making them FASTER, but they’ll still be FABULOUS! 

Also NEW are Open Stamp Night and e-Stamp Class… stay tuned while I get the final details worked out!
