Great News Coming!!

Howdy Ya'll!!! I know I have not been here a lot lately. I have been so crazy buzy, but hopefully this weekend I will get a little caught up on creativity. I do have a couple of things to share.


Sale-a-Bration is still going on and if you have not placed an order to receive some of the most adorable FREE sets that are available during this promotion you are really missing out. This promotion is over at the end of March. After that you won't be able to get those adorable sets.

Place your order through my website and get a free catalog. That's a $9.95 value!! You can take advantage of both promotions at the very same time.

Upcoming News!!!

Stampin' Up! is going annual!! Starting in July the new catalog will be good for a whole year. We will have added opportunities with the Occasions Mini Catalogs that come out a couple of times a year....which brings me to my next point.

The Occasions Mini Catalog is coming soon!!! You will be able to get a sneak peek and preorder a couple of the new sets that will be coming out in the Mini Catalog that official starts April, 1st. I will let you all know as soon as you are able to order....hang in there!

So hurry and get your Sale-a-Bration order in and get your free catalog!!

Let me know if you need anything at all.

Love, Carrie

Over due thanks to Ann..and a quick story.

These props are waaaay overdue!!! My Bella Sistah Ann has been sooo good to me. I wanted to flaunt it in front of Ya'll. LOL!!

Quick story: My husband and I were born and raised in California and now live in Dallas, Texas. Both our sons were born here in Texas. I don't think either of them have an accent, but our family says they do. Our 3 yr. old walked into the kitchen where hubby and I were standing and said...giggle......"What are ya'll doin'?" We looked at each other and said OMG!!!! We were just short of falling onto the floor, rolling, and laughing our butts off. So, being from Cali and using my most favorite word ever, I said "Duuuude!! Did you hear that?!!" He says it all of the time. We were trying not to make a huge deal over it, to see if he still said it. He does! So I picked him up from daycare yesterday (Friday) and told Blake to say Bye to all of his friends and told the two teacher to have a great weekend. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAID TO ME?! Ya'll too!

HAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!! ROTFL!!!!!!!! I know where it came from now. Hahahahaha!!! I just had to share that with you. Back to business......

Besides surprising me with the gift certificate that was emailed to me on like the first day of the Bellah Sistah thing, Ann sent me this wonderful package first. Tons of stuff.....I mean TONS!!!!! Bling ,Embellishments, Chipboard, Awesome paper and matching ribbon, frames, acrylic stamp, rubber stamps, images and brads...Tons!!Then just the other day I get another package. I am like "What the heck?" And I am feeling like a pretty bad sistah at this point. I had a package in my car and totally laaaged on mailing it out. Boy did I ever hussle it to the post office!!! Here is the second box I got from her... It had the most adorable smaller box inside with little kiddos on the side and a little boy on the's sooo cute!!! Inside had "snowmand circle" from StampingBella and the floral lace punch from Martha Stewart...SCORE!!!!! And a package of chipboard....AWESOME!!!

Last, but more precious than all are the handmade cards that came with each of the packages. I took a pic of them together. I absolutley loooove Ann's work. I am so impressed with her and her talent. Ann is the third sistah I have had at the Bellaholics Yahoo Group. I have learned sooo much from every single sistah I have had. All of the ladies in the group are amazing.Going to create now, I just wanted to let ya'll LOLOLOLOL!!! know how lucky I am to have Ann as my sistah! And to let Ann know how much I really do appreciate her!!

Love, Carrie

Catching up on posting

O.k. so I have gotten over the stress of my last class....TIME TO PLAY!!!! My current sistah Ann sent me some pics of her space, so I thought I would share some of my "play area". I have not shared pics since I moved from the office inside the house to the garage. I know it sounds wierd but the owner before us had a home interior business out of the nicely fixed garage and it was just begging for me to move out here. So here I am! Here are pics of the piece of office that I had before the big move. It was quite cozy and I had book cases to the left and some bins to the right. This is what I have now...

I am constantly rearranging trying to figure out what works best for me. I move the long table that was in the way and it now makes a nice spot for any visitor that comes to scrap. Here is what I have now... I stll share a small part of the garage with my husband's girlfriend (motorcycle). And the greenish large chair is facing a t.v. a little play area for the monkeys (kiddos) when I am trying to get something done. All of that is done on the other side of the garage. It works out very nice. I have tons of room to set up tables and chairs when I have parties or crops. I am really loving it.

I have a lot to share, so gear up for another post....or two.

Love, Carrie
