OnStage and Christmas Party!

It’s Management Monday! Here’s what’s happening this week.

I am open today for Open Studio Time!

I am getting ready for OnStage on Saturday!

Please save the date for the Christmas Party on Saturday, November 30 from 10-1 (might go until 2).

Happy Crafting!

Plan now, stress less later.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! Today is the day to rest and recharge.

With about a month and a half to go before Christmas I am sitting here in my pajamas wondering where the year went. And my second thought is I have some work to do. Christmas cards, swaps, craft fairs, and …and…and…

So today I am planning and ordering so I have the supplies to do what I need to do. I just have to remember to take action on that plan so I don’t end up with cases of tic tacs that I forgot about much like last year. As you are ordering make sure to write down a list of what has been ordered and for what. This will keep things organized and will hopefully prevent you from buying something in a rush.

And products are starting to sell out.

It’s Sale Saturday! We, as demonstrators, have been doing a good job of showing you the crafters what is cool to have. So, the Purple Posy Ink Pad, Copper Delicata Pad, and the Moose Punch are no longer in stock. With that I will leave you the host code and not much more since I have swaps to get done for OnStage.

If you would like to order online please use host code 7UW2MACE to help Jodi. This code will be good until Monday evening at 7:30. If you prefer to order in person please contact me.

A look at what’s coming.

It’s Management Monday! This is a look at what’s happening this week.

With a title like that and me just getting back from OnStage I bet you thought this would be a sneak peek into the new Annual Catalog. Not today! Not yet! But if you want your own copy I will be ordering them in the beginning of May. Please let me know if you would like one.

All that being said…here’s a snapshot for this week.

Yes, I will be still having Open Time today at the studio.

Tomorrow starts Card Class (and Thursday and Saturday twice). If you haven’t reserved your seat there is still time. The reservation deadline for Thursday’s class is TODAY by 7:30 pm!!! For Saturday’s sessions the reservation deadline is Wednesday! Don’t forget to tell me that you are coming.

The retiring list will be out a little later today so be watching your email!!!

If you would like to order please use host code SXRN3VAW which helps me to provide the rewards basket. If you prefer to order in person the order goes in tonight at 7:30 pm.

Happy Crafting!

Spring Break!

It’s Sabbath Sunday! While I am travelling back from OnStage and unpacking (laundry, etc.) my daughter is beginning her spring break. Now today is not much of a break for her as she is away for a Drumline Competition, but I know some of the weekdays will have sleeping in as part of her schedule.

Yes, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I believe she is in five different bands at school as well as her core classes. I can’t blame her as it runs in the veins. I come from a long line of go-getters. Both of my Gramas and many of my Aunts and Uncles are of the same mindset. We tend to go and when there is a day off much of it involves being horizontal.

So as our house gets a week “off” I will ask you how you break up your routine to keep your perspective fresh and vibrant.

Happy Crafting!

OnStage is coming!

It’s Management Monday! Here’s what’s happening this week. OnStage is Saturday! I am preparing and finishing swaps, figuring out what to pack, and getting ready to learn a whole bunch. What are you hoping I bring back with me?

If you would like to order this week please use host code SXRN3VAW to help me re-stock the rewards basket. This code will be good until Monday the 15th. If you prefer to order in person please contact me.

When your company gives back.

It’s Friendship Friday!  This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.  I don’t know about you but today I feel lucky.  Lucky to be upright and ready to go.  Lucky to be able to do what I do creatively.  And lucky that you are in my life.

Recently I returned from OnStage and I feel lucky to be part of a company that cares.  Yes, cares.  I paid for my ticket, got on a plane, and checked in to my hotel.  I attended the first session, then the next, and finally the last one.  The friendships I have made are invaluable.  But one other thing stands out.  My company cares.

I had multiple employees stop and ask me how I was, how the business was, etc.  The CEO stopped to take pictures.  My coach brought me chocolate as a pick me up for that day that I was struggling with some weariness.  And, last but not least, the giveaways.  I came home with multiple bags, storage organization, stamps, paper, and more.  I feel extremely lucky that a company would take the time to put back in to me so I can be successful.

If you want to be a part of this crazy family please contact me.  It’s a pretty amazing feeling to be loved by your chosen family.

Happy Crafting!
