Children’s books, ANTI and Black Friday – all in one post!

Catherine Projects


The holiday weekend started today with the kiddos out of school.  It was one of those lazy mornings when I didn't get out of my jammies until 2!  The girls and I just horsed around all day -well, this is after I slept in!  I was up last night until 1 am…I got a bit carried away working on some goodness coming in January for StampNations FIFTH Birthday party!

By the time we got dressed and out for some last minute shopping (Read:  need wine for the upcoming weekend!), we didn't have much time before meeting friends for dinner.  Then, Randall and I watched a movie (have you seen the new Vacation?  Those movies are favorites of ours and this new one didn't disappoint!) and here I am, after midnight, FINALLY getting this post up!  I wanted to update you on a few things:

CHALLENGE:  The challenge this week at StampNation is off the HOOK!  The DT made incredible cards inspired by their favorite Children's book and it was wonderful to read the stories behind their cards.   Members click here for the challenge, we are already seeing cards and hearing stories about members' favorite books!

ANTI-BLACK FRIDAY? –  This year I decided to buck what most businesses are doing and create something amazing for my newsletter subscribers.  If you think about the reason behind Thanksgiving, it's to give thanks…and a GREAT way to do that is to stamp and MAIL cards to your loved ones.  What I have put together (along with help from my very dear friend, Suzi!) is going to help you with that…for reals, I'm already working on it and I have half the cards ready that I need in December!  YES, ME!  The stamper that fails at sending cards…sigh….THIS is going to change, my friends!

The main reason this is “ANTI- Black Friday”  is because…well, can you guess?  (It has to do with the fee….pssst!  there isn't one!)
