Where have I been? What have I been doing?

Where have I been?

Where have I been the past few months?  I’ve been here!  I promise I have.  Mostly posting directly to Facebook when I have been able.  So it all began in April 2017…with a water heater breaking and flooding my house (small flood).  We had to have all the flooring replaced (2400sf).  If any of you have had new flooring put in (for any reason), you understand, it is like packing to move to a new location and then unpacking again.  Why does it take so much longer to unpack than it does to pack things up?  I am still unpacking 4 months later!  I have beautiful new wood-look ceramic floors throughout the house, but we asked them to leave the baseboards off since we wanted to replace them with taller ones.  This has been a portion of the delay in unpacking.  We have 3 rooms baseboards installed, 2 more to go.  So here’s hoping September is the end of the unpacking.  Here’s a few pictures to give you some perspective.  This is what I have been doing.

In between all this floor fun, I have been holding my crafting weekends, working part time for a catering company (love this), and taking a couple road trips with family & friends.  This is what I have been doing.

My plan for the coming months…get the holidays rolling, of course!  The Fall/Winter Holiday Catalog begins tomorrow.  If you would like one, contact me and I will get it to you ASAP.


I will be holding Paper Pumpkin & Beverage on 1st & 3rd Wednesdays (7-9 pm) in September, October, and November at the Starbucks on Cross Timbers & Garden Ridge in Flower Mound.  I will have the current months (August) kit with extra supplies to work on and show you some alternative ideas from the kit contents.  I will also have a few past kits for sale and hope to entice y’all to join the fun with a month-to-month subscription.  Septembers kit will be half price ($9.98) if you subscribe by September 10th.

The season is starting with Stamp-a-Stack Holiday cards at September’s crafting weekend, September 22 @ 5-8 pm.  I will have  5 each of 4 designs.  You will go home with 20 cards.  I need R.S.V.P. from anyone that wishes to attend, it is either $25 cash or minimum $25 product purchase to attend.  You can pre-pay right here  or contact me to R.S.V.P.

If you want to earn an exclusive stamp set that will never be in a catalog, I can do that for you.  September 1st through October 31st, hold a Class/Party/Catalog/FaceBook party with $300 in sales and you not only receive the hostess rewards (based on sales), you will also get the exclusive Merry Patterns stamp set.  The only way to get this stamp set is to EARN it.  You don’t even have to clean your house before & after the event, because you can hold it at mine in my craft studio!  Just invite your friends and I will do the rest.  Contact me to set up your date before my calendar fills up!

So there you have it, that is where I have been.

Keep on Stampin’
Francine
