A New Beginning!

That title seems appropriate for today. Today Stampin' Up is unveiling their new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog and I am so excited to share that with you. I have included the link in my right sidebar if you haven't gotten yours yet. Also there is an AWESOME Starter Kit Special starting today!! You can sign up for $99 and get a free $40 Christmas Keepsake project!

I also have another new beginning in my life. I am getting divorced and will be starting a new chapter in my life. I am sorry I have been MIA for the past month but I have had a lot to deal with. I won't bore you with all of the details but basically my marriage is over after 23 years. My husband found someone else and he has moved on so it is time for me to do the same. I am going to focus on things that make me happy and that would be stamping and spending time with my awesome friends. For any of you that might be going to the Stampin Up covention in the next week and and a half, I will be presenting at the opening party. I have lots of cool techniques to show you so please stop by and visit my booth.
