Quick note...

In case you are wondering where I have been....I've been at the hospital with my oldest daughter all of last week. She is home and better now, although we are still working on some issues. I have a few pictures to share when I get time. Needless to say that things around home haven't gotten done like they should have after being unexpectedly not home for a whole week basically...

I'll try to come back later and share with you. I hope that you are having some time to be creative---making cards, scrapbooking, making gifts, etc. :o)

Craft Sale on Oct 4th!! (even some retired Longaberger!!)

I am getting ready for my Card and Craft Sale tomorrow (Sat, Oct 4th from 10am until 2pm). All the proceeds of the day will go toward my upcoming mission trip to India. If you are in the Roanoke, VA area and need directions, please contact me. (If you click on "Amy's Stampin' Up! events" on the right side of the screen, then you will see my e-mail address and phone number.) Here are pictures of some of the items that will be available.

As you can see there is a wide variety of items, including candles, frames, bookmarks, journals, retired stamp sets, paper and accesories, and hundreds of my card samples!!!

By the way, my daughter Emily made a cake for tomorrow (yum!), and I am also downsizing my Longaberger basket collection by selling some of my retired baskets at discounted prices!! There is seriously something for everyone. Come on over to my house tomorrow between 10am and 2pm and help support my mission trip. :o)

Have a blessed day!!

New month, new Stampin' Up! promos!!

Happy October!!! I know that it has been fall for a little while already, but when October comes, it truly begins to feel like fall for me. And I LOVE fall, don't you? The leaves began to change colors and gently float to the ground, the temperatures cool and it's time for chili, hot spiced cider, and homemade chicken noodle soup---all of those warm, comforting foods. I have put some of the windows up today to let in the fresh air and basically just to air out my home. It feels wonderful.

And I get to be home most of today to get things ready for the Card and Craft Sale and Christmas Card Buffet that will be THIS SATURDAY, OCT 4TH FROM 10AM UNTIL 2PM at my home. I hope that you can stop by for a little while on Saturday. Not only will I have the Christmas card buffet (where you can make your own Christmas cards) and cards and crafts for sale, but also retired Longaberger baskets (at great discounts) as well as retired Stampin' Up! stamp sets (at great discounted prices also). All of the profits of Saturday's events will go toward my upcoming mission trip to India. I am so excited about this trip!!! This event is to celebrate World Card Making Day on Oct 4th. Did you know there was an annual World Card Making Day?!? Well, there is and you can spend it at my home! :o) Here is a flyer about it---click on it and it will get bigger. There is also a special through Oct 11. Order any of the Simply Sent Card Elements Kits or Simply Sent Card Kits (pgs 176-177 of Fall/Winter catalog) and get them at 20% off!

Now today, Oct 1st, is the first day of a new promotion from Stampin' Up! It is called Birthday Party. SU! is celebrating their 20th anniversary this month (well, all year really!). It is hard to believe that this company has been around for so long, and I just heard about it 4 1/2 years ago. I have had such fun learning so many new things about rubber stamping, and I have really enjoyed teaching you about those things also!! Okay, the special is 20% off of 7 stamp sets (plus one Spanish set) when you spend $20 on other SU! stuff!!! It is a great way to celebrate SU!'s birthday---discounts for us. Contact me it you would like to place an order this month. Or you can place your order 24/7 by going to my website (see link on side of blog).

I need to get going and start getting ready for Saturday. Have a blessed day!!
