A little about me....& Open House blog tour

My scrap club gals made this page last month. Here is my version. So often we scrap everything but ourselves. So I wanted to record a little about me!

The RemARKable Open House Blog Tour begins February 4th. R U READY?

My customers are invited to attend a special class featuring a Houseful of cards for all occasions and the cute house box made with your choice of DSP. In addition to making a house box and receiving the pattern you will receive a special PDF with at least 30 house samples on it to inspire you to use your pattern for more fun.

See February's class schedule for dates or schedule a private one on one with me.

If you are unable to attend this class contact me for long distance options available only to my personal customers that will include all the supplies to make the house box, the pattern, idea sheet PDF and cards (less greetings).

Join my mailing list today for reminders of this Class, Tour and other great events I have coming up. Our tour will consist of awesome samples such as a Tool Shed, Garden Shed, Art Studio, Bakery, Victorian home, Dog house and more. Can’t wait to share with you beginning February 4th.

Poodle Pictures!

No Card today....Thought it was time to bring the puppies back to the blog. these faces just make me happy everyday!

Here is Jake. He loves to go for rides in the car. In fact, he will push my kids out of the way to get to the car first. He secretly wants to ride in the UPS truck too. OMG he can here it coming from 3 miles away. Since UPS is here quite a bit-- the novelty still has not worn off. can you say Bark fest???

here's Zoe. a spark plug who thinks she's big & she is ever so huggable! She gives lots of kisses and follows me everywhere. She enjoys laying in front of the fire. No kidding! she bakes herself till she's quite toasty!

And Here is Lexy. otherwise known as "White-y" The one who loves Stampin Up! paper. Especially 3-d items with candy inside. I swear the SU card stock is laced with beef. She also likes Pepperidge farm cookies and the bags they come in. and of course the core of the toilet paper rolls. We always try to remember close the bathroom, pantry and basement (where my stamp room is) doors before we leave -- otherwise you may not know what to expect when you get home!

Have a FABULOUS day today. be back tomorrow with a card!

Leadership Highlights

Nothing like a small Leadership Conference set back. Whew! I'm almost all caught up! Can you believe I have NOT stamped a thing all week its been so busy!

So, Do You wanna see how much fun LEADERSHIP was???

After my crazy Tuesday of travel (sigh), check in was Wednesday. You pick up your bag and head over to an insanely crazy Momento Mall shopping. If any of you noticed that the SU website was slow last wednesday you know why- there were 900 demos shopping!

Then you get to see all the display boards- this was one of swaps but there were also one for all the Sale-abration stamps and the set we got in our leadership bag- With All My Heart.

Can you say inundated with inspiring samples! I always refer back to these when I need a little creative push! There were demos doing product demonstrations too. Quilts, movers and shapers boxes, Love bots and the egg kit plus stencils! what a treat to get so many ideas!

Then you get to do your make & takes. these projects were so cute! and the scrap page was darling too!

Here's Shelly stamping on stage. WOWZERS she makes great projects. I'm so happy & blessed to be a part of her organization! She is an amazing role model for all women!!!

On the last day at closing session we sat in the back in the stadium style seats. Shelli was demoing a project that was not going on the demo website, So as soon as it goes on screen every one raises their cameras to get a shot. Notice all the lcd screens on the back of the digital cameras in the crowd. Each time they were all raised in unison. VERY COOL and not something I expected to see.

Here's my new Stamping buddy Kathy and her awesome Leadership bag. I LOVE THIS BAG! it holds my laptop and my purse with lots of room to spare!

heres a few shots of me and my teammates & stamping buddies! Cathy, Georgeann, Deanna, Me and Ann. We had a great time! we are usually at convention together so it was fun to have Ann and Georgann join us for Leadership! Now I need some of my team and Lanie to come next year! Come on girls--think about recruiting!

Here is Kathy, Jan and Carolyn in between classes. Very smart business women!!! all 3 have been to Founders Circle! and I was lucky enough to hang out with them!!!

Here's a shot of all 900 of us heading to lunch. Main stage was on the very top floor of the convention center! lunch was at the bottom!

Here are some of the ladies on my local and extended team. Some of them were also at the stamping Retreat I was at too RAD. (RemARKable Achieving Demonstrators)

In the stroller is Chloe. note her hand made quilt! Back row: Her mom Nicole, Deanna, Linda, Cathy, Cathie, Carol
Front Row: Jen, Kathy, Deann and me

Thats my trip in a nutshell. There is so much more to the trip than can ever be shared in a blog post, But you get the idea! Thanks to all my friends who made it so special and thank to Stampin Up! for hosting the event! I cant wait for Convention!
