A Fresh Start

It’s a new year full of new beginnings. A fresh start. So I’m resuming blogging. Welcome back!

As we breathe in a new year, I want to encourage us all to not be so hard on ourselves. We set goals…we fail at said goals…and we get discouraged and give up. Maybe our goals should just be DO BETTER. KEEP AT IT. Let go and move on. So here we go…

“And now we welcome the New Year, full of things that have never been.” – Rainer Maria Rilke

I saw that quote on a calendar, and it made me smile. Back in December, I made these simple calendars with the gals in my stamp club. I always do a desktop calendar with them to start the year and one that can be easily duplicated for them to give away as gifts. This year I simply downloaded a template online and added some patterns to the top 1″ of each month. I love how they turned out.

Calendar-Jan2019-2You can really play around with different patterns and techniques…on a smaller scale. I used post-it notes to block off the top 1″ so they all had a consistent look.

At Stampin’ Up!, January marks the beginning of Sale-a-bration…our biggest promotion of the year. And it is also the beginning of the Occasions 2019 Catalogue. I’m not sure about you, but  I always get a little overwhelmed at the start of a new catalogue. I want it all!! Where do I start? Good news. This month I have a couple of sampler options for you.

A Paper Share
A great assortment of all the new designer series papers in the Occasions Catalogue.

January hostess codeIf you have not received your Occasions or Sale-a-bration Catalogue from me in the mail…and would like one…please contact me and I’ll make sure you receive your personal copy. The December postal strike created quite a delay in getting these to you, and I apologize. Thank you for your patience.

Here’s to a year full of good things. Are you ready for it?

Thanks so much for stopping by today,
