Specials, Specials, and More Specials!

Crafters -

Stampin'Up! is offering two specials.

1) Online Spectacular
Beginning tomorrow (November 22nd), this is a one-week sale with discounts up to 50% off. They are offering this sale during the week of Thanksgiving when most people are too busy to hold workshops and many are doing their holiday shopping. They are telling us that this promotion is best suited to online orders, so make sure you go to my SU! website ( and click "Shop Now" in the upper right hand corner. You will also be able to take advantage of the Clearance Rack when placing your online orders too (the Clearance items are while supplies last only). FYI - they have let us know My Digital Studio (MDS) will be 50% off, some Designer Fabrics will be 50% off, AND there will be FREE shipping on online orders of $150 or more. If you place an online order of $150, you also receive those great hostess benefits!


2) Simply Amazing Recruiting Special
If you have ever thought of becoming a demonstrator (remember you do NOT have to have workshops, classes, etc. - YOU can be your best customer!), now is the time! From November 15th through November 30th, you can purchase the Standard or Digital+ Starter Kit for only $87.50. That is 50% off the regular price of $175 and you will receive over $310 worth of paper or digital crafting and business supplies. To sign up, you can go to my SU! website ( Click on the "Start Your Own Business" (this is under the "Shop Now" for the online store). On the next page, you will click "Join Now" (on the left hand side in the middle - watch the video in the center too - LOTS of information there was well!). Then start following their instructions. Click "acknowledge" when you do acknowledge their wording. Click "I agree" (if you agree) and the password that you need is "DAMES" all in capital letters. Then start filling in the blanks! It's pretty much instant that you become a demonstrator by doing it this way, online. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Will be home during the Thanksgiving holiday, so you are more than welcome to contact me. I will be working on the craft room and doing homework - please interrupt me from homework! Smile  And remember, once you are part of my downline group, YOU can come over on December 18th and craft with our group - ONLY those in my downline are invited to this day of open crafting. Everyone will be working on his or her individual projects. (My mom is even thinking about signing up now - it is that good of a deal!)  OH - and if you want a paper form to have filled out before you begin this process, let me know - I can send it to you, you can print it out and have it ready to go when you are signing up!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and remember what is really important in all of our lives. We have so much to be thankful for...

The Craft Room... :)

As many of you know, we moved a couple of months ago. With the move, selling the old house (we sold it two days ago!!!!), the MBA classes, carpal tunnel surgery, and life in general, almost all of my stamping supplies were still in boxes...



Thanks to my fabulous husband and wonderful child, we had taken a trip to Ikea a couple of weeks ago. I wanted one of those 5x5 size Expedit bookcases. We brought it home and we (finally) put it together Friday evening. :)  I was hoping that I could fit two of them side-by-side into my craft room. Well, my craft room is literally 1.75" too small! Of course. So, again, my fabulous husband said - well, instead of the 5x5 size, why not get four of those 1x5 sizes? (What a nice guy, huh?)

Because my minivan is still in the shop (recall and parts are not available until MARCH now!), I have this little tiny rental car, I had to borrow HIS car. We had to fold down seats, lean back the passenger front seat and remove all passenger headrests. With all of that, only one person could go to Ikea. So, with a 10 minute notice, I headed south! That's ok - I was able to talk with my mom by phone during the drive. Aren't moms great?!

This is what it looked like when we put the three 1x5s together. In true "Dawn fashion," Ikea only had THREE!!!! I will have to make another road trip (darn, huh?) The three 1x5s are on the right. I just LOVE how the paper lines up perfectly in the cube.

Disregard all extra stuff, but you get the idea right? Well, we rearranged it slightly, there will be two 1x5s, then the big 5x5, then the last two 1x5s (it just looks better). For right now, there is still one 1x5 missing. Here's what it looks like now!

Ignore the clutter, I will be rearranging things and getting it the way it should work well.

My downline will be the first ones to craft in my new craft room. Don't forget, you can sign up and save a BUNDLE beginning tomorrow through November 30th. If you sign up during that time frame, YOU can come over and stamp with the rest of us! I think I finally have my mom talked into signing up too. It is just such a GREAT deal!
