It is the first of November, and since I have taken the holidays "off" for the past two years, it is time for me to get back in the saddle, so to speak.  Since November is here, I need to get myself organized and garner that "plan" so I can enjoy somewhat stress-free holidays with family and friends this year. My goal is to begin addressing my cards the first week in November so they will be ready to put in the mail right after Thanksgiving.  With that goal in mind, I am finishing creating cards this weekend. For all of my customers who are finishing (or getting started) with creating their cards, it is with a heavy heart I pass along this message from Stampin' Up!  Stampin' Up! is experiencing some significant delays at their west coast ports due to a breakdown in negotiations with union dock workers.  

These delays have, and will, impact the following back-ordered items until an agreement is reached:  a) Wonderful Wreath Framelits Die (item 135851); b) Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Die (item 135853); c) Tree Punch (item 135859); d) November My Paper Pumpkin kit (potential back-order issues) 

In light of this development, I will be adding some "play" days/evenings to my November calendar. These "play" times will allow you to bring your own consumables (card stock, ribbons, buttons, etc....) to the Rubber Room and use my punches, framelits, etc... to work on your holiday cards, treats, packaging....  Here in the Rubber Room we know how to make the best of a bad situation!  We will have snacks, coffee, lots of holiday inspiration AND a time to relax with friends while we complete our home made gifts~~not to mention tons of fun!

Be sure to check my calendar for dates for upcoming "play" times.  These dates will also be included in my November Newsletter.  If you don't receive the Rubber Room Newsletter, just use the "newsletter" button on the upper-left sidebar to sign up and have it delivered right to your email box.
