We are in the process of packing and getting ready to move. Since my father went to reside with Our Lord this house is just too big. 5 bedrooms and 3 bath for 2 people...Overkill!!! Besides that I have to walk 100 steps one direction just to put a load of laundry in...BORING.
I had no idea of how much crap you can accumulate in a short 15 years....I have packed over 20 boxes just out of my stamp room.....and you cant tell it!!! OMG I had no idea that I had that much crap!!!!
I have packed up clothes that no one has worn for 10 years for goodwill. The Helping Hands from our church has taken some extra furniture, I need 3 people just to help me sort stuff. I am finding that I keep way too much stuff.

MY MOM: Update: Mom is getting weaker all of the time. She was so sad yesterday, she said someone had come to see her and she couldnt remember who it was. It was her grandson...poor mom. She said my dad had been to visit her again (he passed in 2006) and asked her to go with him...I know her time here is limited....she said that she is ready to be with daddy.

Thanks for listening
Back to packing

Coming soon to a computer near you!

Got the creative itch? Scratch it anytime!

Coming this fall, order fabulous Stampin' Up! products from your demonstrator any time, day or night through her business web site. Whether you wake up in the middle of the night with the perfect plan for the perfect project or need to make party invitations with no time for a workshop, it's no problem! Just visit your demonstrator's web site and order what you need.

If you don't already have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, you can locate one in your area.


Q: When can I start ordering online?
A: You can start ordering from your demonstrator's web site beginning this fall.

Q: How does ordering online work? Do I just click on the products I want? Does it automatically calculate the shipping and tax for the customer?
Yes, Stampin' Up!'s Online Ordering is very similar to other online shopping sites. Simply add items to a shopping bag and click to check out. The shipping and tax will be automatically calculated.

Q: When I order merchandise online, do I get to see samples and ideas for using the products?
The online store will be very similar to the catalog. Not only will you be able to buy products directly from your demonstrator online, you'll also be able to view samples and ideas displayed in the catalog and other Stampin' Up! materials.

Q: Do I get hostess benefits when ordering online?
We know your relationship with your demonstrator is important, so when you place a qualifying order from your demonstrator's web site, you will be eligible for Stampin' Rewards (the online version of Hostess Benefits).

Q: Is there any difference (in price, minimum shipping, etc.) between placing an online order through my demonstrator's web site and placing it with her in person?
A: When you order through your demonstrator's web site, you'll enjoy the same catalog and minimum shipping prices, and qualifying orders will still be eligible for Stampin' Rewards (Hostess Benefits).

Q: If I forget where to find my demonstrator's web site, can I look her up?
Yes. You can find your demonstrator through the Demonstrator Locator.

Q: Does Online Ordering take the place of the traditional Stampin' Up! workshop?
A: Absolutely not. Nothing can replace the enjoyment of learning and stamping with friends. While you will soon have the convenience of ordering from your demonstrator online, Online Ordering is not designed to replace workshops, but to supplement them by giving you access to your demonstrator and her great ideas any time, day or night.

Q: With Online Ordering, will the online catalog go away?
The new Online Ordering system is much more dynamic than the old online catalogs and is designed to replace it.
