New Ribbon Sampler Club

Have you seen all the new beautiful ribbons in the Spring-Summer Catalog??? Would you like to receive one yard of each of the new ribbons? I am forming a club right now, where you will receive one yard of each of the items described below at a fraction of the cost of buying a full package of each new item! If you bought one of each package of each new ribbon it would cost you approx. $69, plus tax and shipping, or you can join my club and get one yard of each ribbon shipped to you for only $17.00!

Join today and your Ribbon club sampler will include 12 yards of ribbon:

1 yard of So Saffron Ribbon from the Dress Up package
1 yard of Whisper White Ribbon from the Dress Up package
1 yard of Riding Hood Red Ribbon from the Dress Up package
1 yard of Kiwi Kiss double sided polka dot ribbon from the Pig Tails package
1 yard of Pumpkin Pie rick rack ribbon from the Pig Tails package
1 yard of Baja Breeze ribbon from the Valet package
1 yard of Chocolate Chip polka dot ribbon from the Valet package
1 yard of Basic Black ribbon from the Valet package
1 yard of striped Old Olive ribbon
1 yard of striped Pretty in Pink ribbon
1 yard of striped So Saffron ribbon
1 yard of Organza white ribbon

This club includes 12 yards of ribbon as described above. They can be seen on pgs 178 and 179 of the NEW Stampin' Up! Catalog. Go to my Stampin' Up! website to view the ribbon if you don't have a new catalog.

Each club will consist of 8 members. I will place orders each Friday for all filled clubs, and will mail your club sampler back to you within 14 days of the order going in. (If items are backordered I will contact you).

U.S. Orders only.

Your cost for all 12 yards is $17.00. Club products shipped 1st Class Mail in a bubble mailer.
Contact me today to reserve your spot in the club!

I glittered the love birds with Dazzling Diamonds!
Love this cute little goodie bag using mini paper bags and the Top Note Die. This was one of our projects from Stamp Club this month.
This stairstep card is a CASE from Splitcoaststampers. This was another Stamp Club project for January.
Here are some other Valentine's Day cards using the "A HAPPY HEART" stamp set.

Some of you may have noticed that the Supplies & recipes for the projects in the new catalog are not located in the back of the catalog anymore. Instead of just listing the page and supplies, they have now made up a listing of pictures and supplies. This makes it so much easier to find the project you are looking for!
Click on the picture of the catalog to take you to the Supplies & Recipes. Print it out and keep it with your new catalog!! (Its long (23 pages), so have plenty of ink and paper before you start printing! :)
If you still don't have your copy of the catalog, contact me today! I have more coming soon!

January Disneyland Trip - 1/6 - 1/7/2009

Kayley has 3 weeks off for Christmas Break, so we've been going to Disneyland the last week of break for the past 2 years. Most of the crowds are gone and the lines are short. We decided to stay overnight at the Paradise Pier Hotel this trip much to the disappoint of Chuck and Kayley who think we need to stay at the Grand Californian everytime we go now! I have to admit the Grand is "Grand", but the wallet choose the Pier this trip! Staying at a Disney Hotel is more expensive, but we like the perks - Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday are Magic Mornings - you get into Disneyland an hour early and we like the easy access to the parks from the hotels. We've been wanting to go to a character dining for the past few years, so we decided on Lilo & Stitch's Aloha Breakfast this trip since it was at the Paradise Pier. We had a rough night with Kayley up at 2:00 am throwing up, but we still made our 7:00 am reservation. We lucked out with us being the first reservation and then only 1 other family there. We had the characters almost to ourselves! The rest of the day we had fun at Disneyland and California Adventure. We did our usual rides and shows. One of our favorites is the Drawing Class in Ca Adventure.

The Incredibles

Kayley and Chuck on California Screamin'! Her daddy talked her into going on it again. I had to get them when they went upside down! You will not see this Momma on that ride!

Pluto came over and colored some pictures with her and then walked her out when we left! He's a crazy dog!

Kayley with Minnie and Lilo & Stitch

This was the first time we've seen Daisy - she never comes out!!

I am wearing a pair of shoes.
They are ugly shoes.
Uncomfortable shoes.
I hate my shoes.
Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.
Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.
Yet, I continue to wear them.
I get funny looks wearing these shoes.
They are looks of sympathy.
I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs.
They never talk about my shoes.
To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable.
To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them.
But, once you put them on, you can never take them off.
I now realize that I am not the only one who wears these shoes. There are many pairs in this world.
Some woman are like me and ache daily as they try and walk in them.
Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as much.
Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by before they think about how much they hurt.
No woman deserves to wear these shoes.
Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger woman.
These shoes have given me the strength to face anything.
They have made me who I am.
I will forever walk in the shoes of a woman who has lost a child.
