Stampin' Class this week, and a much needed stamp room makeover it theworks

Blogging from an outdated laptop and iPad is very difficult.    I am searching for a new laptop, one that I can actually download and upload.....One that I can share photos....and maybe post on my blog as well as search the internet and read and send emails and visit social media.

It has been a busy summer and I am a bit excited to slow down visiting Maryland, at the same time missing spending time with my children, grandchildren, family and lots of friends.

My Mom has moved closer to my brother and I, saving lots of gasoline and lots of time.

I have been cleaning up my stamp room and trying to organize it better for more efficiency which will save me time searching for items.   I'll share a few photos of "before" and then by the end of this month, show you the "after"   why so long for the after?   I have been rearranging items and realize some of my storage in my stamp room is not the right furniture.   So I am in the hunt for some new items:  bookcase to house my stamp sets.   Maybe a shelf to put on my desk to increase some space....and who knows what else I'll find to use in here.

How does this happen!!!!!  Anyone else have a desk so cluttered?   Send me a photo of yours and I will award some prizes....for the most cluttered desk!

This Wednesday I am holding a beginners class at Casa Loma Mobile Home Park, Melbourne, FL.   I have no idea how many people will show up, but it is open to the residents there and I planned a card for them to make as well as showing some of Stampin' Up!'s great products, all color coordinated too.  If you are in the area, stop by 10am - 11am.  Here is a card I was going to use, because it uses a punch and stamp set, but when done, I thought it was too much for a beginner.

I am also holding a class on Thursday, same place

Stamp Class, Sept 8th, 10 am. Casa Loma Clubhouse, Melbourne, FL. The Class is $10 or FREE with an order of $20 or more the day of the class. Bring your bone folder and paper snips if you have them and your favorite adhesive. All other supplies are included in the class.  Bring a new stamper to my class and receive a gift from me. Both you and the new stamper.

Stampin' Up! is offering Special Offers from Now thru Sept 21st.   Different offers each week.   The first week ends tomorrow.   Check them out!

This is a screen shot from my laptop, cause either my computer is too old to convert PDFs to JPEG2000, AND I am too challenged to figure it out!

You can order on my website for these great offers as well as any Stampin' Up! products,  Please use Hostess Code   SQKHMBJC when ordering online.    You can also contact me to place your order too.

Ok back to laptop to resize photo......!   

Photo resized finally.

Thanks for sticking with me,
