Hi Everyone,

What a beautiful Saturday! I just finished watering my raised beds and am perplexed on where to plant the rest of my things. I'm out of space, but still need more room. Any ideas on to add space in a creative way?

It' hard to believe that the new catalog for Stampin' Up! is just around the corner. I pulled some of my retiring products to see what I just needed to do or say to them before they are discontinued. I'm just lucky that I have them.

Take a look at the retiring products to see what you can't live without. The sale prices for retired items just can't be beat! Up to 50% off. Here are a few of my favorite picks.

Be sure to contact your demonstrator to order these great products or other great products. Or you can shop on-line at and use the hostess code #RDXYX2RE to qualify for hostess benefits. This code will be good through May 20th.

I did a fun event at my daughter's …
Hi Everyone,

Well I had a blast having a "Stamp til you Cramp" night. We managed 8 cards that I created on the spot. I did have some help along the way from the stampers too. I hope you like my samples. Let me know what you think. I love the "Big News" stamp set. We did 4 from that set and then "Walk in the Wild" set, which is being retired, we made 3.

 It's hard for me to choose my favorite, but I do love the baby cards. I think the baby boy card with the stars is my favorite. I love the "Big News" stamp set! I'm sure glad it will still be available. I can't say the same for "Walk in the Wild" stamp set. It will be available through June 2nd as long as supplies last.

This is the best time to get those retiring items you just have to have. Most are on sale and many up to …
