Back To My Routine

Although it has been nice having my husband home for the past two weeks, I must say that I am happy to be able to get back into "my" routine. It was just like when the kids still lived at home, and were on Christmas break...anything but routine.

We spent lots of time visiting with family, and friends. Stayed up way too late, and actually slept in later than usual a couple of mornings. I cooked alot more than usual too, which I must admit, I did enjoy. I am still adjusting to cooking for two. The one thing that I missed though, was spending time in my craft room, creating...

This is a bittersweet time with Stampin' Up! Some of our favorite stamp sets are retiring, and will soon be gone forever. But, with that, how exciting to think of all of the new sets that will soon become our new favorites! Then, just think about the new accessories...each year they seem to get better...just what will they introduce this year? I get very excited just thinking about it...how about you?This is a card that I did a while back. This is the Summer By The Sea set, and Wonderful Words. Both sets are soon to be retired. The background stamp is actually French Script, that retired last time, but we do have En Francais, that will be in the next catalog, and is very similar. Summer By The Sea was on the dormant list, so it is not listed in the current catalog. If you are interested in seeing the entire set of 6, you can go to my website, and click on "shop now". You can see all of the sets that are being retired here. Remember, the last day to order any set that is being retired is January 18, 2009.

Later today, the Retiring Accessories are going to be announced. Be sure to visit my website after noon Mountain Time to see this list. These items usually go very quickly, so if you see something you need, don't wait too long. To save time, and avoid the risk of not getting something, you can order directly from my website.

Please contact me if you have any questions. Thanks for visiting...

I'm off to my craft room to create something!
