January PP – I’ll Bee Yours



Prepare goodies for all your loved ones with this Valentine themed set.  The little envelopes are perfectly sized to hold a gift card or a thin profile chocolate such as Ghiradelli.

Wouldn’t it be fun to fill in several and create a scavenger hunt or make a “Reasons I love You” banner?  There are many possibilities with this sweet kit. They would also make great scrapbook pockets for memorabilia or notes.  The kit will create 10 cards with envelopes and 20 treat bags so you should have plenty to work with.

This kit also coordinates with the new Heart Punch Pack found in the new Jan-June Mini Catalog (Item 151292,  p. 10).  Heart Punch Pack Image

Shareable Image

It’s always a happy day when I get to share beautiful new product!  I LOVE the holiday season and when it ends I get really sad.  I can’t think of anything better to beat those blues than with a whole new catalog full of beautiful new product!  There are so many great suites in this catalog that cover holidays and events occurring in the next several months.  I can’t wait to highlight each and every one!  We will start the year off with Peaceful Poppies (featured not the cover) because don’t we all need peace after the busy holiday season??  I’ve got some great things to share for Valentine’s Day and I think, after Valentine’s Day, when it’s cold and dreary and we are all wishing winter would end we will have a Winter Tropic celebration.  Doesn’t that sound dreamy?

The big day is tomorrow.  The catalog will be live to view on my website (click the tab at the top of the page) or contact me if prefer a printed copy.  I’m telling you all this today because tomorrow I will be back to tell you all about this years Sale-A-Bration!!!

Happy New Year! 20/20 Vision

Photo by cottonbro on

Wow!  I just can’t believe another year has come and gone and here we are standing at the beginning of a whole new decade!

I have seen many references to the year 2020 regarding clear vision 20/20.  I love that!  There are so many things I have on my To Do Bucket List this year that I have decided to write them down.  I have always been a visual/tactile learning.  I need to see it (sometimes daily) and it helps me to do something with my hands to make it stick into my brain (such as writing it down and taking notes).  I have never been one to keep a journal but I am a BIG time list maker.  So, lets make some lists of what I want to accomplish this year in my creative life:

  1.  Lots of cards.  Lots and Lots (that’s an easy one, something I always do) but this year I want to actually mail them! ha!
  2. Classes.  I have always wanted to teach stamping and card making classes.  I talk about doing it but I have never really reached out and tried to do it.  I’m writing it here for accountability.  This year I’m going to do it!
  3. Stitching and Sewing.  I’m bringing it back into my life soF you may see posts from time to time on my projects.  Just for fun and to add a little mix because, why not?
  4. Fairs & Markets.  I love to go to them.  I actually had a booth over the holidays in one local market to see how I liked it and I had a lot of fun.  I hope to do more of that this year.

I think that is a good start.  So, I hope you had a beautiful Christmas season with your family and friends.  I sure did!   Now I’m ready to kick this year off with a bang.  Only a couple more days til the new Jan-June Mini Catalog is released and Sale-A-Bration!  I’ll be back to share more details!
