The weather has really started to shift this past week. While we should be bracing for Summer temperatures in Atlanta, it feels more like Fall is upon us. I expect to see the leaves dropping from the trees, but they are vibrant and green in this cool weather. My calendar still tells me it’s Spring, so I’ve been busy with some Spring cleaning and organizing in the fungeon. I must prepare for a new year with the release of the 2013-2014 Idea Book & Catalog. I’m also starting to make my DSP swatch books for the new catalog – can’t wait to start sharing those – and am prepping for product shares!
Sharing Some Blog Candy
In the midst of the cleaning and organizing, I’ve decided to “let go” of some really great Stampin’ Up! products, so I thought it would be great to share with you. Some of these products date back eight or nine years, but some are current in the Spring Catalog. All of them are in really great shape. It’s quite a variety of accessories and embellishments, and I think you will love them. Just leave a comment below.
Here’s what’s included in this blog candy giveaway:
- Wire Works 26-gauge Copper Wire
- 1/2″ Stitched Poly Ribbon, Poppy Parade
- 5/8″ Flower Trim
- Designer Builder Brads
- Fancy Fibers (6 feet of each fiber)
- Metal Edge Tags – Vellum Squares
- Hemp Twine
I’ll randomly select a winner tomorrow evening (Saturday, May 4) based on comments left on this blog post. The winner will be posted here and should contact me with their mailing information within a week. Sorry, England and Canada, but this offer is only good for folks in the U.S.
Totally Unrelated to Stamping – Video Share
While we are sharing with one another (OK, maybe I’m doing most of the sharing here, but I’m OK with that), I wanted to share a video with you. In 2007, I participated in a stand-up comedy competition. The Search for the South’s Funniest Accountant is held annually in Atlanta as a fundraiser for Junior Achievement and to help change the myth that accountants are boring, dull people. There were about 600 people in this theater, and this was my first time doing stand-up comedy. I’m really proud of this bit because it’s clean comedy and really shows my personality. My nerves were on fire backstage, but I was so comfortable once I stepped on that stage. Before you click on this, be sure you have 8 minutes to watch it – my favorite part comes about half way through. Here’s my little gift to you:
I didn’t win the competition in 2007 (didn’t even place) but participated again the next year – AND WON! I’ll share that video with you at some other time. Too much going on today.
One More Share – a Sneak Peek
I’ve shared some product. I’ve shared an old video of me. Now, I’m going to share a sneak peek at the card I’ve got lined up for you tomorrow. Here’s what I’ve got for you tomorrow:
Doesn’t that look exciting?! 🙂
