Happy New Year.. :)

Well I feel like it's been forever since I got in here and posted an update and I find myself wondering where the time has gone.  I really have to stop blinking so -  is it really the 14th of January already? Yikes!!

 We finally got word back from our insurance company and they will finally be starting the renovations at long last. This means however that we'll be out of our house for 3 weeks minimum and we've begun packing everything from the main level to start that process.

Thankfully the ScrapNStamp area will remain unscathed downstairs, but I do have to pack up a good complement of toys so that I can still make use of them in the interim.  We've been checking out rooms and efficiency units in our area and along DH's route to work and such to find a spot that works that we can take our two small dogs with us.  The birds, fish and reptiles will have to settle for many many visits to feed and water them until we can come home again.

I wanted to formally apologize for the mixup with the January Crop - that has NEVER happened before, and I hope that it doesn't again - but as you well know life happens sometimes and we just have to adapt and move on right?  I have confirmed that our dates for February and March are secure and I have many awesome things in store for you..

I've received some wonderful goodies in the mail this week.  Sample cards, Swap cards all filled with inspiration.  I'll be sharing some of those over the next while.

We've had to change gears a little bit with the renovations but please know that even once we're out of the house - the beauty of running VOIP service is that our internet phone can go with us so I won't miss your calls and you can expect the same level of service that you have become accustomed to.

Have you received your copy of the new Occasions Mini?  I auto-shipped a copy to all of my regular customers as well as anyone who had signed up for my newsletter that gave me an address.  I also sent out a copy of the upcoming Sale-a-Bration flyer which begins in just under 2 weeks.  Please let me know if you haven't received yours and I will get one you to right away.  If you would rather, you can also download them from my website under CATALOGS.

I've included images of two cards I made using items in the new Occasions Mini for a recent swap.  I hope you like them!  If you CASE my cards, I'd love to see your take on them .. please leave me a comment with a link to your card's photo or drop me an email :)

Yours in Creative Bliss

I really like the simplicity of the first card.

Thanks Michelle :)

It's funny that the other card took much longer to do and in the end I was much happier with the one that took much less time and effort to do.

I guess sometimes less really *IS* more..

Thanks for taking the time to comment :)
