Want FREE Stampin' Up! Products?

How would you like free Stampin' Up! products just for purchasing the products you would buy anyway? Well, now's the perfect time to do just that! SALE-A-BRATION is here again.
When I was a customer Sale-a-bration sounded too good to be true. My Dad always taught me to proceed with caution if something sounded to good to be true. So I did. I read everything I could about Sale-a-bration, I looked on the internet, I talked to people who were virtually Stampin' Up! experts. I kept looking for a catch - and I never found one. You know why? There isn't one.

Alright maybe a small one. Here's the "catch" these Sale-a-bration items (with the new punch excluded) are only going to be here from January 5 (that's today) until March 31, 2010. After March 31st, they will be gone forever. That's the "catch". The punch will be available for purchase after this period...but why buy it later when you can get it for free now?

Here's how (choose the option that fits you best):

1. SPEND: Spend $50* and earn one free Sale-A-Bration product of your choice.

2. HOST: Host a workshop of at least $300* and earn one free Sale-A-Bration product in addition to the generous hostess benefits.

3. JOIN: Join Stampin' Up! during Sale-A-Bration and choose a free stamp set ** from the Idea Book and Catalog (valued up to $47.95)

*Net sales before shipping and handling and tax
**Excluding Hostess Sets

And you can earn another stamp set every time you qualify. For example: If you spend $100, you get 2 free stamp sets from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. If you host a work shop with net sales of $600, you get 2 free stamp sets (plus the hostess benefits). It's a great deal - Don't miss it!

If you are interested let me know either in the comment section of this blog or go to my Stampin' Up! Website I can send you a Sale-A-Bration catalog.

Also, the new Occasions Mini Catalog (January 5-April 30,2010) is now out. There are a few items that are only "While Supplies" last, so make sure you get what you want before they are gone. There's something for everyone!

So many ideas so little time!

Do you make New Year's Resolutions? If the answer is 'yes'...good for you! If you are like me and the answer is 'no, because I make them and then feel guilty for not keeping them.' then this idea is for you. This idea is called the "Scrapbook List" Make a scrapbooking album of 10 goals (or more...or less - depending on your enthusiasm for this idea)! Make sure the first page consists of a list of your goals...because, if you're anything like me, life is hectic and you aren't going to remember your goals by May. :) You goals could be anything from "go on a hike" to "run a marathon" that's the beauty of goals, there is no rule that they have to be nearly unattainable to be considered a 'good' goal. They can be simple or they can be's all up to you.
Next, as you accomplish each goal save something to commemorate the event (a picture, an airline ticket, a copy of your marriage licence, etc.)

Getting Started:

1.Get a new album and customize it to fit your personality. Dedicate it to the upcoming year. (Or to Goals in general).
2. Make a list of things you want to do. (If the list becomes massive, pick your 10 or 12 favorites. That would be about 1 goal a month, which would make them more attainable).
3. Make sure your goals not only are achievable, but defined and have an estimated end date. (Instead of the goal "Be a better cook" make the goal "Take a cooking class and make 7 dishes that you learned there).
4. Devote at least one page to a goal. Then in December you can look back and see all of your accomplishments. It is also good motivation because you don't want to get around to December and find that your album is blank.
5. Save a memento from each goal. If you went on a hike save a leaf or something from that hike.
And most importantly: Don't forget to journal! Write what preparation this goal took. Write how you felt when you accomplished this goal. And write how proud you are that you accomplished all your goals this year!
