Merry Patterns Host Set by Stampin’ Up


This time of year is an awesome time to host a workshop! Why? This is the time when we gear up for the holidays. From gathering around the table at Thanksgiving, to celebrating the Christmas season, we need greeting cards, table settings, and gift packaging. It is even better when it is homemade from the heart. Let me teach you and your friends how. Host a workshop, earn host rewards and a brand new stamp set from Stampin’ Up.

How to Earn the Merry Patterns Host Set

Watch the video to learn about this very cute host set and how you can earn it!

What is a Workshop?

A workshop or home party is an easy and fun way to learn how to create beautiful handmade projects and earn free products. You can invite some friends to your home (or mine), host an online party, or a catalog party. There are lots of options. Contact me to learn more.

Let me show you how easy and fun it is to make your own projects. Think of “painting with a twist”…only it’s “Stamping with a Twist”!

Hope to hear from you soon!

Happy stamping,

My Personal Fundraising Page and More Options for Disaster Relief


I recently wrote regarding ways to give to victims of hurricane Harvey. Now, we have another hurricane hitting the coast of Florida in the next 24 hours.

I forgot to mention a couple of well-known Christian non-profit organizations. They are Samaritan’s Purse and World Vision. Both are very reputable and have done so much to care for others in need. The links to their main websites are listed below.

Samaritan’s Purse

World Vision

I have also set up a personal fundraising page through Samaritan’s Purse. All donations  will go directly to those who need it. Help me raise $500 or more!! My personal page is below and I will also put a link in the right sidebar of my blog.

Thank you for your care and kindness for others!
