I recently attended a Creative Convention in Lansing, and there were lots of great speakers.  I had so much fun.  One of the speakers, Erica Cerwin flew in from Texas and spoke about Craft Fairs.  I was so inspired, that I am actually going to be doing two Craft Fairs in November.  I am so excited!!  This is my first official craft fair item.  It holds a mini Kit Kat, and I think it is adorable (if I do say so myself).  I used some retired Designer Series Paper, because I have tons of it, and I love it.  

I found the pattern on YouTube.  It is by Angie Juda and is week 11 of her 2015 12 weeks of Halloween videos.


I love my boxes and my framelits, so it naturally follows that The Home Sweet Home Thinlits would be one of my favorite things in the Holiday Catalog. Here is a little "coffin" I made for part of my Halloween Display at Creative Convention in Lansing.

And here is  a house I saw on someone's blog, and I love how she did the broom! The Home Sweet Home Thinlits are so versatile and fun!! Here is where I found this house.

Come Kit With Me on World Card Making Day (October 1, 2016) from 10:00 a.m. until noon. I have lots of "kits" that are "extras" from past classes, and I would love to share them with you. I will put the coffee on and put out some yummy treats, and we can make a morning of it. This is the easiest card class you will ever attend. All you need to do is assemble your card "kit"; so be sure to bring your favorite adhesive with you. Kits are $2 each or three for $5. Each Kit includes everything you need to assemble one gorgeous handmade card. What a wonderful way to spend World Card Making Day. PLUS I will give you a $5 off coupon for any order you place that day. Be sure to RSVP before midnight on September 30th, 2016. Text your RSVP to 248-909-8016 and be sure to leave your name.


Fall is here and it is time for me to get back to business after a very busy summer.  As you know, my summer has been filled with lots of family commitments (some happy and some very sad) and time spent away from home and my beloved Rubber Room.  

I am now back from Creative Convention in Lansing, which, as always, was extremely inspiring and uplifting.  Networking and training with so many talented and successful women is always an amazing experience!

I am looking forward to OnStage in Wisconsin the first weekend of November and even more creativity, training and awesomeness.  Working with Stampin' Up! is something I truly enjoy that keeps my faith in humanity strong.  I meet so many people every day who inspire me to be the very best I can be and who remind me to see the good in other people (regardless of how hard I have to look to find it).

October begins a new Stampin' Up! year and I am extremely excited to be setting my business goals for this year and looking forward to all that the 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! year has in store for me and my SU! family of demonstrators.  As such, I am giving a bit of a new face to the Rubber Room with lots of new displays and cards made with products from the Holiday Catalog.  I am also putting my business plan together and getting all of my pieces in place to make this a successful year for my business.   This includes a "Goal List", which contains lots of little goals being reached throughout the year and, of course, then reaching my final goal.  My "Goal List" looks like a tall ladder, and I will be reaching the top to get that final goal.  I have a timeline for all of my goals, and will be setting up a "progress sheet" so you can watch me check off those tiny goals as I journey to the big one.

Any guesses what my final goal will be?  If you have a guess, please email or text it to me (if texting, please leave your name).  On Monday I will randomly pull a name from my basket of entries, and if I pull your name, you will get a prize from me!
