New Stuff Happening Daily.....Christmas is Almost Upon Us!!

December 19th already and WHERE did the time go?

We've been having a blast this holiday season looking at holiday lights, having baking parties, attending get togethers, you know...holiday stuff! Participated in a Secret Sister Santa group that was all sorts of fun and got some really cute goodies to boot!  Nothing like a Secret Sister Santa group to get your creative juices flowing.

So how is it that only six days before Christmas I'm still ordering stuff from Amazon? You guessed it, I got busy with stuff and put too much on my calendar. It happens, we all think we can go to that one party, meet up with those friends, babysit the grandkids one more day/hour/whatever. Then our own stuff doesn't get done. It's called life. Things happen and you move on and do the best with what you have in front of you. Luckily we are all good, just some gifts and no one will notice if those are missing, right??


Because of the new health program we've been on, we haven't done a ton of baking nor did we make any fudge or zucchini bread to give away as gifts this year. Hubby has lost a total of 42 pounds since September 7 of this year, and I've lost a whopping 70 pounds in the same time frame. Needless to say, we are feeling really good about our new healthier lifestyle at this point and don't intend on doing any thing silly to jeopardize it.

I really love how our house decorations came out this year, I'll post a few pictures of them so you guys can see, and also from our cookie decorating day with the grandkids. Lots of fun and so many sugar cookies!

 Kiera, my six year old granddaughter, lost her other top front tooth so now she can sing, "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth" and mean it!!
Here she is surveying the cookie creations we collaborated on for the afternoon!
 Ok, so I cheated just a little and bought the pre-made dry dough that you add an egg and some butter to then roll out and cut and bake as normal. Saved me a ton of time and that day, time was at a premium!! I'm glad we did it, no one noticed!
 A batch of cookies going home with the grandkids. Their parents can fight off their own cravings for sugar. I don't want to!
 The stockings were hung by the chimney with care.....
And the little lit up Christmas village was decorating the antique sideboard. Such a cute little scene, I think next year I need to buy some fake snow to lay down first. I've seen it done like that and it's so pretty.

Ok, everyone. I have some interesting announcements but ran out of time and room  on this post. I'll post those first thing tomorrow so stay tuned!!!  Until then, enjoy the holidays because they are not here forever!
Merry Christmas!

Wow! Free shipping for the second day this year!!!

I am so excited to announce that Stampin' Up has so very generously given us not ONE, but TWO free shipping days this year. You have to understand, this NEVER happens. In this day of high shipping costs, it is one thing I hear about most often even though Stampin Up is so great about getting their stuff out to us in a timely manner and packaged up so well. Who doesn't want FREE SHIPPING??

Well, today's your day. Just grab that wish list (we all have one!) and start at the top. I like to concentrate on heavier stuff as well like paper! Remember, our End Of Year sale is also going on so it is a wonderful opportunity to take advantage of both and get some retiring product and maybe some paper you've had your eye on for awhile. Your Christmas list is also hanging around somewhere and there are fantastic card kits available or even a Paper Pumpkin subscription (just one month at $20 or up to a whole year!) that would make an awesome gift for friends or family.

 My shopping page is a great place to see all the newest stuff and also the retiring and end of year clearance as well. Just copy and paste this link into your browser www.thefancystamper.stampinup.net or CLICK HERE to go there 24/7. If you order anything from my page please don't forget the current host code which is AKVGHSG3 so you can get some free goodies in your thank you packet from ME.

Remember, our new Occasions catalog is going live on January 3 and if you haven't yet received your new catalog from me please comment below to receive one. If you've ordered from me in the last 6 months to a year I'll automatically send you new catalogs but if its been awhile since your last order, you need to request one. Don't miss out!!

 The photos are selections of what you can be enjoying from our end of year sale as well. Head on over to my secure shopping page to see everything and get shopping today!!

 Some pretty little gift tags using our new Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. With these blendable markers you can add lowlights, highlights, and shading like a pro! Use this type of tag for any sort of gift or gussy it up for a Christmas tag. There's so much you can do with the markers and this special stamp set, "Climbing Orchids." Buy the "Climbing Orchids" bundle and save an extra 10%.
Last but certainly not least, this is a "sneak peek" at a brand new set coming down the line. From our yet to be released Occasions catalog, this is "Fruit Basket" stamp set and the "Tutti Frutti" designer paper pack. Not only that but there are gorgeous new sequins available with this catalog that are self-adhering!! Talk about a game-changer!
