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.

Happy Crafting!

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.

Happy Crafting!

What’s going on.

It’s Management Monday and there’s a bunch that I am preparing for this week.  Shall we get started…

I’ve already done inventory for all the craft fair items.  (If you are hoping for something to be created please say so.)  This was in preparation of transferring credit card systems that has a lower fee and an inventory system that is in real-time.

I have added to the rewards basket and have added points for more than just supplies.

I am finishing up Serina’s calligraphy class which will have a birthday bonus.

I am packing for the Career Fair on the base tomorrow.  If you are looking for a job contact me for more details on this fair.

Add Card Class, Christmas classes, swaps for OnStage, and on it goes.  I love that this job of mine is as flexible or involved as I need it to be.  If you’ve been around a while you will know that I’ve done everything from a class per quarter to 20 in a month.  I am so grateful that this is such a malleable passion of mine.

If you would like to order online please use host code MFD9GBXR.  If you prefer to order in person simply contact me or drop in for open times today.

Re-charge so you can do it again.

Today I am packing up and heading to OnStage!  This is my way of re-charging and getting new ideas for you.

In the meantime I have finished my swaps…

And I have also finished the card samples for Class next week…

The invitations are out so let me know when you are coming (and if the invitation is easier to read).

So as I re-charge remember to mail your cards, share your smile, and maybe even grab lunch with that friend of yours you have been meaning to call.

Happy Crafting!

Lots of cards this week.

Lots of cards are being created this week.  Lots and lots.  Why?  I am getting ready for OnStage of course.  Here is a photo of my swap.

And here are the video links (sorry my internet cut out so there are two videos) on how to make it with a bonus of the stamparatus.

And part 2 to finish it up.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

Managing our Monday.

Did you ever notice with enough planning just about anything is possible?  At least this is what I am choosing to believe.  There are quite a few events coming up.  Are you ready? 🙂

Next week is the Card Class.  RSVP is on Friday the 10th so please let me know that you are coming.

On the 25th we will have our Small Business Saturday Christmas Party from 10-4!  Save the date and I will get out the invitations as soon as I am able.

On the 28th we will be creating a paper potted orchid with coordinating card from either 10-1 or 6-9.  Invitations coming soon so save the date.

If you would like to order online please use host code NXXHCDUW through Tuesday at noon.  If you would prefer to order in person please contact me.

I am back in the craft room today cleaning from this weekend and getting swaps done.

Happy Crafting!
