The holidays are such a busy time. I get totally consumed with preparations -- shopping, wrapping, baking, making handmade gifts and then finally the celebrations. I enjoy all of it but I'm always glad when everything is over and life can get back to normal. Actually, normal for me is just about as hectic! That's why I like the start of a new year. It's a time to clean the slate and get a new start. I've always struggled with organization and managing my time so once again those are the areas I'm going to focus on.
Since it is January 7th already it looks like the managing my time resolution is not going to well. I opened up my blog today and realized I hadn't posted for almost a month!!! How time flies when you are having fun.
I was going to post a few pictures of items that I made for Christmas gifts. When I went to use my photo-editing program to crop my photos, it decided not to cooperate. It wouldn't load properly and it locked up my computer. After three reboots and a lot of frustration, I gave up trying.
So, instead of pics let's talk about what's going on at Stampin' Up! Here is a quick breakdown of the promotions for this month:
1 - The new catalog is coming out and will be available as of Jan 19. YEAH!!! I can’t wait to see all the new spring and summer stamps and accessories!
