I'm ba-a-a-a-ck!!! (but my stamps aren't)

I had hoped to share a post with you today, using some lovely samples from new stamp sets, but that's not going to happen. I left a 42 pound box of my stamping supplies with my hotel, to ship home for me so I would not have to carry them in my luggage and risk getting them all mashed by baggage handlers like they were when I flew out to Convention!

However, my package did not arrive today, as expected. When I checked the UPS tracking, it showed that the package still had not even been received by UPS. What in the heck?!? So, I called my hotel (who shall remain unnamed to protect the ignorant, I mean, innocent) and lo and behold, my package was sitting right under their little noses. They neglected to hand it over to the UPS man not one, but TWO days in a row, and even today when I called they told me they had just called the UPS guy to "come back" and pick up my box. So, apparently for three days in a row my box sat on their counter. Did I mention it was a 42 pound box?? It's not like it could hide even if it wanted to.

And when I say that all my stamping supplies were in there, I mean the BASICS were in there...new stamp sets, new ink pads, stamp cleaning pads, Paper Snips, SNAIL--the works! I had all this stuff because I did a demo on the evening of the last day of Convention. Of course, I can't even post the details of that cool project yet because all my samples and supplies are in the BOX I STILL HAVEN'T RECEIVED.

All I can say is that there were some great announcements at Convention, like the fact that Stampin' Up!® will be carrying the Sizzix Big Shot die-cutting machine, some exclusive dies, and also some Sizzix non-exclusive dies which coordinate with the exclusive ones. This means that you can order your Sizzix supplies through me now, and get HOSTESS BENEFITS on your Sizzix purchases!!!

So what's a stamp-a-holic to do? CALL ME, of course, at 719-205-5957 (local to Colorado Springs)! Book your workshop today, to be one of the first to get a FREE NEW CATALOG, and one of the first to have a party out of the new catalog. Or, if you're like me, place your own order of $150 or more and receive Hostess Benefits from your own purchases. The new catalog is open for ordering on August 11th, 2008 at NOON Mountain Standard Time...I'll be there with bells on!
