A WARM Hello from MN!!

Happy Fall. My gosh I can't believe its already November. Soon it'll be Thanksgiving and then Christmas. I had a great class on Saturday at Smudges. I met some wonderful new ladies in my class and we had a lot of fun. I saw Mary Kay again and she had an adorable make and take card after my class ended. Our fall weather has just been so nice these past few days. Its going to be 73 degrees on Monday. This is just unbelievable weather especially in MN but I will take it and enjoy every minute of it!!

Back to Smudges, I did manage to buy a few little treats for myself after my class. I know I am bad but I just had to feed my stamping addiction and pay off my *layaway items* (he he). I *needed* these items for my future stamping classes at Smudges! I purchased some awesome Bazzill embossed dot paper, a few Cuttlebug folders and the new Cuttlebug ornament die/embossing set, Gamasol and blending stumps, stamps (imagine that) and I'm not sure what else was in the bag. Oh I just remembered I got some beautiful new background paper by Basic Grey and a few other sheets of gorgeous paper. I really hate to admit this but I wanted more things such as Magnolia, My Favorite Things, and Lockhart stamps but I just had to stop at what I was getting and be thankful. I'm a pretty fast and impulsive shopper! I can do some serious damage in less than five minutes. Just ask my friend Wendy. The good news is I haven't been to Michael's in like a week or so.

News flash...I will be teaching a Christmas Card Class on Friday, Nov. 7 at Smudges using stamps from assorted companies, Copics, Spica glitter pens, and my stash of Cuttlebug products. The class starts at 11 am. Please come if you'd like to get a jump start on your holiday cards and have a stamping good time. I may offer this same class in the evening so stay tuned as I need to figure out my class schedule for Nov. Smudges is really great about emailing weekly and I like that so kudos Leslie. You GO GIRL!

I've *fallen back* and certainly enjoyed the extra hour of sleep on Sunday! I have a busy week coming up with orders, class samples, kit making (oh joy), phone calls, cleaning my deck and garage on Monday, laundry, housework, bills (yuck), voting for sure on Tuesday, and finally the long awaited haircut on Thursday.

Lastly, I do offer my classes "to go" for those of you that can not attend. Email me if you are interested. It's a sweet deal and I've been doing this for several years now! Have a super duper t week. Thanks for stopping by my little 'ole bloggie. I'm still dreaming about getting some of Taylor's new cupcake stamps. They are without a doubt the best cupcake stamps I've ever seen!! Peace my friends. Tami :)

Edited on Monday. I can NOT for the life of me upload any of my cards. I just don't get it? I've tried posting three cards recently and Blogger gives me nothing but problems. I've spent so much time trying to upload and its so frustrating when it says DONE and nothing is there. I just want to scream and pull my hair out. Maybe it will work later on this week so sorry no cards.

Can't wait for Friday's class at Smudges - but am enjoying this gorgeous weather in the meantime! Sorry you can't get your card photos uploaded as I LOVE being able to check out your latest card creations on your blog.

Hi Tami,


I bought something at Michaels the other day and a 50% off coupon was given to me, along with the receipt.

Have a good week.
