Happy New Year ... 2017 is going to be great!


Well, it has been 5 days since we all rang in the New Year and I am just now making time to share with you my resolutions for my personal, community and stamping life!  I intend to be brutally honest this year, and share my reality... I cannot do it all, and my priorities are shifting.  I intend to grow and learn more this year than years past because at 46 years of age... yes... I'm 46 years young.  I have not completed or understood many of my past resolutions and I feel that this year I am going to try to be kind and love more.  There is a difference in how I have done this in the past and how I journey into the future... because I truly want to love more, and hate less.  My family and friends will hopefully understand this more as the year progresses and I will redefine until my last breath... not just this year but every year. 

So why am I taking such large breaks in my blogging?  Well, apart from the fact that I do not make this a priority I take tons of notes, and write in my planner.  My planner unfortunately does not communicate with you.   I will try and step up my game! So this year I will continue my blogging a few times a week but I vow to be totally helpful!  Not just typing to type. I am adjusting My Happy Homemaker Monday to include a few more loves for me to share with you, I will have my monthly Mimi's Challenge and advertising the entire year upfront.  I will be sharing more about the people I love to be around and share their stories from my perspective and I want more random playdates  to share my love of stamping.  Even if we are not together in person... I have a few dates up my sleeves to share with people virtually that will be inclusive!

The NEW 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs are now live! I have a few days set aside to share them with you in person:
January 22 - Marie will be hosting a Stampin' Up BUNCO in Manteca. 1-3pm Cost is $13.00/person  (join us... a fun way to earn free stuff)
January 28th - Join me for a Card Buffet, Baked Potato & Candy Bar in Manteca at the Camellia Clubhouse from 10am to 1pm... It is FREEE ...  and if you desire to extend your day you can stay from 1-3 and play!
January 29th - Open House - San Ramon  Join me in my home for the opportunity to create and utilize my tools and supplies or work on your own projects.  Again there is no Fee to participate just your time!

Mimi's Challenge:  A way for you to earn a $10 in Stampin' Up! from me.  Mimi has set the themes for each month for 2017, and our cards must include at least one Stampin' UP! product current or retired and a recipe of all the supplies used to create your masterpiece.  Each month a panel of random judges will decide the winner and I will join in and CASE a card or two.   Mimi will slip in some wonderful tips and share her inspiring ideas for creating and completing some amazing themes and it will be fun!   Anyone can join in!
