New Sale-a-Bration Items Added - Stampin' Up!

Crafters -

We were able to go to Florida over the weekend to celebrate my mom's birthday with her. VERY bittersweet. Mom's birthday was very nice but we all did notice my Dad's absence. Fortunately, he was able to sign her birthday card before his passing, and there was even a birthday gift for her from him.
Grandma and boy - celebrating her birthday!
So, I should now be home and things will be getting back to normal, our new normal, within the next few weeks.

Imagine my surprise this morning, when I went online to the Stampin' Up! website. Due to the discontinuation of the Blendabilities line, Stampin' Up! has added even MORE Sale-a-Bration items!

As I'm just getting back into things, please forgive me, but you can click HERE to view the new Sale-a-Bration items. Please notice that even though these items are current items, they have NEW item numbers. YOU MUST USE THESE ITEM NUMBERS TO GET THEM FOR FREE. If you use the regular item numbers, you will be charged the full amount.

Thank You for Your Patience!

Crafters -
 
Thank you so much for your patience. Many of you know that I cancelled my February card classes very abruptly.
 
My dad passed away in the wee hours of Friday morning with my mom, his wife of 50 years, by his side. Dad did not want a service, but he did want mom to have a "party" with friends and family to celebrate his life. Because OSU brought him back from the brink, so to speak, he told her he also wanted an Ohio State University sweatshirt displayed at the party. Mom is working on scheduling this "party."
 
Although I am understandably sad for me and my family, my father was a Christian and I know that we will see him again. Please feel free to pray for our family during this trying time.
 
Several of you have contacted me privately, asking if you could send flowers for the service. Thank you! My folks were absolutely FLOORED by the care and compassion of the staff at the James, the Wexner Medical Center, and the Ohio State University. In lieu of flowers, mom has requested that a donation be made to OSU in his memory.
 
Dad's obituary is HERE. (If you prefer to cut and paste: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/heraldtribune/obituary.aspx?pid=174283704)
 
Again, I thank you for your continued patience. I will update my class schedule sometime in the future...
