Hey everyone!!My title for this post is a bit deceiving because I am going to be posting the two things backwards from the way I have them listed. Giveaway first and then “the deal”. This is a giant post so I put the fun stuff at the top 🙂
THANK YOU for celebrating my 150,000 visits with me! If you have just happened across my blog, keep reading to find out how you can enter my giveaways all month long.
Everyday I am so thankful and amazed that so many people share my joy of stamping and come to visit me. It is truly amazing to see that visitor counter climb. I am thankful for each and every one of you who take time out of your busy lives to stop by.
During the month of May, I am going to have FOUR, yep that is right FOUR big giveaways to celebrate. I would like to give a special thank you to iCopic.com for making this all possible. They are a great company and you really need to check them out for all your Copic needs. I love love love them!! Copic markers are absolutely wonderful to use and they enhance your stamping so much. You need waterbased Stampin’ UP Markers AND alcohol based Copic markers. Believe me, they do two totally separate things and both are very important for a stamper. Anyway enough marker love. . . can you guess what the giveaway involves????
You guessed it COPIC MARKERS! WAHOOOOOOO!!!!
This week, I am going to be giving away a pack of Copic markers called the Manga Skin Set. It contains 8 Copic Ciao markers that are perfect for coloring various skin tones (plus a multiliner)! And. . . a Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad to go with it:
The lucky winner here will have everything they need to start coloring in their lovely Stampin’ UP images (well besides the Whisper White cardstock LOL)

OK so here’s the deal. . . (the little boy I babysat for years used to say that all the time and now I say it in real life LOL)
I am working on some MAJOR behind the scenes things right now because I am going to be having some major announcements this coming summer. It is really hard to keep this a secret and I am just bursting with ideas and happiness just thinking about it. Yeah, I know, I am such a tease! You will just have to stay tuned to find out what I am up to :O) I can tell you a little bit about it now. . .
I am going to be transitioning over to 90% Stampin’ UP business mode. (I am still totally in love with my Copics and my Cricut and I feel that they enhance my stamping so they are STAYING!)
I have been waffling for a long time now (running my stamping business to it’s full potential VS just having fun) and I am ready to pump it up!! I want YOU to let me be your demonstrator and I am going to do more to try to encourage you to do so. . . that way, I can stamp forever and never get a “real” job (real as in 9 to 5, working in the office type thing). Every Stampin’ UP purchase you make from me helps me reach my goals of supporting my family. As I am getting ready to become a wife and soon leave the college world, it is more important than ever that I start to make a decent income.
No more fun money and playing around. I am getting down to business here! (LOL Those of you who know me know that I am being SOOOOOO sarcastic and silly right here! I am easily amused!!)
I am VERY VERY VERY thankful for everyone who comes to visit me, even if you are not here to purchase Stampin’ UP products from me. I love to share and love to inspire people and I am going to try my best to continue to do those things. Being here with you brings me great joy.
Also, I have something extra special planned for those of you who are already Stampin’ UP demonstrators and are here for extra inspiration and ideas. I have a plan to help support you too so you will not want to miss out.
Well, that is all I can say about this for now. I am really excited to take my stamping to the “next level” and I hope you will join me for the ride!
