Announcing - New Additions to My Collection

Happy Friday everyone!

This week has flown by very fast in our world.  Seems like only a couple of days ago we were toe-tapping waiting for Sale-a-Bration to start, and now here we are at the end of the week of its arrival.  I'm almost afraid to BLINK!

We're in pack mode pending some interior repairs that are long over due as we've finally got insurance and the contractor in sync and things are moving forward.  The last couple of weeks have been buried in packing boxes and researching accomodations.  Who would have thought it would be so difficult to find a spot that has reliable internet and allows pets while still taking into consideration mobility issues??

We found one place that was closer to home, but bedrooms and bath were upstairs and everything else downstairs which would mean many daily trips up and down a very narrow set of stairs which could prove a safety hazard.  My hubby suggested staying upstairs (or down) during the day -  but with the bathroom up and the kitchen down - well that's not very feasable.  To say nothing of two little dogs who would not likely appreciate being dangled out the window by their harness/leash for potty time.   So back to the drawing board.. 

Some places allow pets for a flat fee, and others a daily rate also - some have microwave and bar fridge and others nothing..  I'd never really considered all the options before..   crazy..    Thankfully most places we've looked at had ample room to set up a portable table for a computer or scrapping station.  When we're looking at being out of the house for several weeks that's a must! :)

Anyhow, I thought I'd celebrate the arrival of Friday by sharing some new additions to my ScrapNStamp collection - What new toys have you gotten lately?

I was commenting to my teddy bear this morning that with the addition of this set that I now have almost all of the hostess in the current catalog from just my own personal purchases.  Thankfully he laughed..  I could have been in so much trouble!  LOL

So awesome is my teddy bear that when I mentioned that my next plan involved the new level 2 set in the Occasions mini and lots of SAB Goodies and he just grinned.  He's not a stamper or scrapbooker, but he really does seem amused at watching our Crop group enjoying their new toys.  :)

 Valentines Day definitely seems to be on my shopping list for this last order - Can you tell? Here are just a few of the LOVEly items from my list..

Several of these will be featured in my upcoming workshops, classes and of course our Crop til you Drop on February 13th!

Come on out to see these beauties in action!

 I got to play with the Scalloped Heart of Hearts at a Team Training event recently, and knew I just had to have it.  I have always been a big fan of hearts in general particularly when it comes to dangling earrings and such but this embosslit die is a piece of simple elegance.

They arrived Tuesday and I haven't had a chance to play with them - but I am quite looking forward to playing with these new toys.

 Have you made something with any of the new items I've added to my collection?  Leave me a comment with a link to your project for a chance to Win!  If you prefer you can email your entry privately also.
Of course, I couldn't look through our new Occasions Mini without sensing a definite sewer's theme.  Along with new fabric and Sewing themed stamps, and designer series paper were these new "Sweet Buttons" in an embosslit.  I couldn't resist also getting the Buttons from our larger Idea Book and Catalog as well.

I've been contemplating ideas for these as well and will share some as soon as time permits.  All of these goodies will be with me at my upcoming events if you'd like to take them for a play-testing.

To Order these or any other items from our catalog or minis you can order directly from my website 24/7 or contact me directly to place your order.  Remember, during Sale-a-Bration every $60 you spend (before shipping and taxes) earns you FREE product!!

Haven't seen a copy of the Occasions Mini or NEW Sale-a-Bration Flyers?  You can view or download them from my website in PDF form or if you'd prefer to receive a copy of the actual flyer let me know and I'll arrange to get that to you.

Until next time..
