Home Again!

I’m home from vacation and working on getting back into the swing of things again.  Thank you so much for your patience in waiting for your shipping rebate.  I’ll be getting those in the mail on Monday (unless you opt to receive your rebate via Paypal, in which case you’ll get that today and your thank you card will be mailed on Monday.)

AFK (Away from Keyboard) for 2 weeks

I’ll be away from this blog until Tuesday, November 18th when I’ll update the Deals of the Week.  There will be deals the other 2 Tuesdays that you can find by clicking the “Shop Now” button on this site.  While I’m away the shipping rebates will be delayed.  I’ll be getting those into the mail on the 18th.  Last but not least, the virtual club tutorial will be sent out to members on that day, as well.  I have, however, already set up the Hostess code (Z3WWHH7H) if you wish to place your order while I’m away. 
I leave you with this pretty fall-colored flower card.  I love this Flower Patch stamp set because it is so versatile.  I can do 4 seasons of cards by just changing up the colors. 
Happy Stampin!

Happy Halloween!

These were the favorite cards I made this Halloween season and I didn’t even use a Halloween stamp set!  I modified an idea I saw Shelley Gardner make at convention on a treat bag and turned it into a card.  It’s so me.  I love the big dots on the background, the natural looking paper, and the traditional Halloween colors.  I might make this card again next year!  lol 
Happy Halloween to you all!

Getting spooky!

It’s almost time for Halloween!  I’m hoping that the rain stops so the kids can enjoy their trick-or-treating here.  I still need to finish up the treat bags to hand out, but mostly I’m ready.  The jack-o-lanterns are shining on the front porch and we’ve got our costumes unpacked and ready.  (Well, I still have to find the dog’s costume.  I know it’s in the closet somewhere!)

Weekly Deals!

Also please note that we currently have backorders of many items due to a worker strike.
Dockworker Strike Means Delays
We are experiencing some significant delays at our west coast ports due to a breakdown in negotiations with union dock workers. These delays have and will impact items until an agreement is reached. The Wonderful Wreath Framelits Die (item 135851), the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Die (item 135853), and the Tree Punch (item 135859) are currently on backorder due to this delay and the list will likely get longer as the strike continues. This may also result in delayed shipping of the November Paper Pumpkin kit.

Feelin’ Like Fall

It was a hot and dry summer here in Oregon, but it’s now feeling very much like fall.  It’s cool, gray, and rainy.  I never thought I’d be happy with that weather forecast, but we really need the rain.  Anyway, with cooler temperatures comes changing leaves.  I love seeing all the pretty leaves.  Most are still on the tree, but they will be in their fall splendor pretty soon.  (And that’s your unofficial Northwest Fall Foliage Report!  lol)  Eventually the ground will look like this:
My dog looks so happy to be wearing his “Gentle Leader” collar. lol 
Happy Fall Ya’ll!
