San Antonio Regionals

I attended my first SU! event in San Antonio. It was an eventful day, full of lots of cool demonstrations, make and takes, fun fun and fun! I made some swaps for this event, and got so many cool ones back! I only wish I had made more than 15, because there were some really adorable projects people came with! It seemed like enough at the time, (because I was tired of piercing paper) but now I know for next time. Here is what I made:

Cardstock - Tangerine Tango (Base), Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White
Stamps - SU! Bitty Birthday, SU! Eastern Blooms

I went with Kim from Stamp-a-rama, her friend Keli, Lydia from Understand Blue and her friend Neelam. I'll be posting more pics of the conference in the next day or so, but I want to show a picture of what we got upon entering. I have a new stamp set - Best Wishes & More and a set of 6 make and takes.

My voice matters!

I was picked to participate in the Stampin' Up Survey Panel! I was sent a questionnaire, and as long as I finish at least 80% of it, they will send me a goodie box in the mail after three months. I wonder what will be in it. Oooooh :D
Of course, I finished 100% of my survey (why not finish it up if you got that far, plus everything you have to add only helps the company make better informed decisions). If you want to apply to be part of the panel visit

My first big Stampin' Up event! :D

I've been invited by Kim at Stamp-a-rama to go to the Stampin' Up Regional Seminar in San Antonio. At this seminar, I will get to watch stamping demonstrations, practice stamping
techniques, and make fabulous projects. I'm really excited! I am also having to get creative, because I want to bring some swaps to the seminar, so I have been trying (not so successfully so far) to come up with card front ideas.

My on again off again relationship with eBay

So I've been doing really well not going crazy on eBay, but I broke down the other day because there is this one retired SU! set that I had been eyeing. I saw it in one of the older catalogs and thought it was too funny. I really like punny ones so I saw a good Buy It Now and snagged it at an awesome price. The set is called Please Be Seated and it's a bunch of punny chair ones (like a rocking chair that says You Rock, and a loveseat that says Sofa So Good, hahahah). I can't wait to get it and use it!
