I’m Back… but these are not!

So, as you can tell, it’s been a while since I posted here.  It’s been a hectic couple weeks but now I am back in in gear.

Where have I been, you ask?

First, I had to get a lot done at work so I could leave on vacation for a week.  Then I went on said vacation (a visit with Mom and Dad in Flordia and a cruise with them to Georgetown, Grand Cayman, and Cozemel, Mexico!).  Next, I came back to work which just so happened to be just in time for Holy Week… so not only did I have catching up to do, I had a bunch of new work to prepare for.  Did I mention that I am the head of the kitchen committee here also so I had to plan, shop and cook Sunrise Service Breakfast for 80 people… and the dog went into labor Easter morning!  Now, I am planning and prepping for Thursday’s Stamp Camp, getting ready for the next vendor fair, and worrying about the dog that should go into labor in a week!

Of course there are pictures…

In my title, I mentioned that I am back – but some other things are not.  Curious?

Well, Stampin’ Up released their list of retiring items.  Better check it out to see if your favorites are listed and if they are, hope on the band wagon and place an order!  Stamp sets will be orderable until the middle of May, but everything else is on an AS AVAILABLE basis and things are already gone!  Click the link below to see what is still available in my online store.

Don’t miss out on your favorites. This is your last chance to snag them up.

One of my newest acquisitions is on this retiring list but is still available.  It is the Writing Notes background Stamp.  Here’s what I am using it for right now…

It is an Appreciation Card for the local high school’s Beta Club kids.  They will be making them this afternoon to give to all the teachers and staff during Teacher Appreciation Week at the beginning of May.  I CASE’d this card from someone off Pinterest, but I can’t remember who to give them the credit – just know this was not my original idea.. but then again, they never really are!

Here are the directions they will be given…  teacher Appreciation 2017

And, a printable version for those that need it!  teacher Appreciation 2017

Until next time… keep it simple, Stampers!
