Not Too Early!

Announcements/ Holidays / Special Days/ Join My Team/ Paper crafting

Doesn't it seem strange to be talking about Christmas when September just BARELY got here? It does to me, but I know that by the time I can blink twice, it's gonna be here!

Hi All!

Dave, (a.k.a. The Stamp Slave), here. I figured I'd jump in and help out so that, when the next Stampin' Up! incentive trip comes up, I can point back to this post and say, “Yes! Really! I helped!” That's worth a trip to Maui, isn't it?? LOL… (By the way, sure would be ‘funner' if some of y'all came along with us on some of these fabulous trips! Ask Anne how…)

The new Stampin' Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog will be out on Thursday and it's spectacular, as usual! I'll be spending some time tomorrow getting the picture together and setting up the link so that you'll be able to click and go right to the download page! Be sure to come back on Thursday morning to see what a marvelous job I've done! 😉 Then, click the link, (it will be in the sidebar on the right), and download the catalog so you can see what I mean.

I've attached a picture above of a project done with the, “Wrapped In Plaid Suite”. The Wrapped In Plaid Suite is available in the new catalog. If you want the whole thing, you'll get the stamp set, punch, DSP, ribbon, some brightly-colored “Jingle Bells”, and some gold mini pizza boxes. If you want a bit less than that, there's the Bundle, which includes the stamp set and punch. Or… if you just want a couple of things, they are all individually available. Just let us know how we can help.

And please remember, when it comes time to pack for Maui, please back me up. Just say, “He DID help!”

Stress Free Holidays Part 2

Holidays / Special Days

Welcome to Part 2 of Stress Free Holidays! If you missed the first part on Monday, click here.

Stress Free Holidays Part 2

None of us want to look like this sweet lady! I know I can easily get caught up in the holiday “hustle and bustle” so these tips are a great reminder for me, too!

Part 2 tips, 6-10:

Tip #6: Remember what the holidays are really about – spending time with family and friends! Perhaps you might start a new tradition of volunteering at a local food bank or soup kitchen with  family members. Most of us are blessed with so much and when we can do things to serve and cheer others, we are the ones who really benefit!

Tip #7: This tip is actually a way to “de-stress” someone else's holiday. Most of us know a young mom who might enjoy shopping (or maybe even a warm bath with a good book!) without the kids. Why not give her a call and offer complimentary kid sitting services?

Tip #8: Take care of YOU! Most of us wear ourselves out bustling around, giving to others. We forget that if we aren't feeling well physically and mentally that can truly affect those around us in a less than positive way. Make it a priority to give yourself some “down time”!

Tip #9: Ask for help! You don't have to be Martha Stewart OR Martha of Mary and Martha in the Bible. Delegate! You don't have to cook everything and make your home spotless all on your own!

Tip #10: GRATITUDE! Especially at this time of the year, we should spend more time counting our blessings, remembering what we have instead of worrying about what we don't. Instead of “Keeping up with the Jones's,” take a minute to appreciate the simple joys of love, family, friends, good health, etc.

I hope my tips gave you some good suggestions and, perhaps brought a smile or two as you read through the list! If there is anything I can do to help you have a stress free holiday, please give me a shout!
