It's in the Air ...

It was such a cool day in Vermont ... the scent of Fall lingers in the air as I watch the yellows, reds and oranges shadow the backyard.  That could only mean one thing ... Christmas is around the corner.  For me that means it is time to switch in to overdrive and prepare for an annual craft fair I attend in VA with my sister.  The Ovitt household has endured a very tough year (I had two major surgeries) so I am praying that I may bring in a bit of holiday income.  My mind is swirling with many project and card ideas ... just waiting for my body to catch up with my mind!!  

What are you up to ... crafting for the holidays?  Would love to hear from you!

Stampin Up ... it's all about fAMily.

    I have been asked quite a few times why I love Stampin' Up so much ... certainly I have been unsuccessful thus far in making it the business I dream about it becoming so why stay in it?  The answer is quite simple ... I love my family.  When I talk about my family I am not simply referring to my biological family but also my extended Stampin' Up family - women (and men) I have met and some I haven't who have become important support pillars in my life.  Each year Shelly, founder of SU, presents a theme for the business.  This year's the was "I AM".  I finally realized ... I AM fAMily!

  On a lighter note, I spent the day playing with composition notebooks ... what fun they are to alter.  I enjoyed coming up with some fun color themes while maintaining my "Less is More' motto!  What do you think?

Happy Stamping !
