Calendar Class kits and Blog Candy Reminder!!!

I have a few more pics from the calendar class I will offering next month. I am also offering to do this as a kit for those who wish to make the calendar, but are not able to come to the class. The class kit contains all of the precut materials needed to make the calendar and the Calendar stamp from the current Stampin’ Up! catalog. I will also stamp the images for you (with the exception of the calendar part). If this is something you would be interested in purchasing, please contact me at The cost of the kit is $45 and includes shipping. These would make great Christmas gifts!!!

Did someone say “Blog candy”????

I know I made a brief mention of this in my last post and wanted to make it official. I am going to be giving away some *fabulous* Stampin’ Up! goodies. If you have not checked out the Simply Scrappin’ Kits from SU!, you really, really need to. They are wonderful!!! And you don’t need to be a scrapbooker to use them. They make awesome cards, too! If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and would like to learn more about these kits or any other SU! products, drop me an email and I’ll get back to you ASAP.

Ok, so with my ringing endorsement of the SS kits, I decided to give one away as blog candy. I have a Creative License Simply Scrappin’ Kit, which is only available if you host a workshop or book party with sales of $150 or more. You *have* to check out the new Stampin’ Up! textured cardstock that is included in the kit. It is awesome! I also have a brand spankin’ new Basic Gray Classic ink pad that I will also offer up. It is a really great color and it’s new to the catalog, too! I apparently liked it so much, I ordered it twice (don’t tell the hubby)!!!!

Here’s a pic of the candy:

I also wanted to say that I have 2 more pages for my calendar class done (woo hoo!) and I only have 1 to go. I took some pics tonight, but the lighting was terrible. I’ll take some more in the morning and post them.

Ok, how to win the blog candy……

Leave a comment on *this* post. That’s it. Easy! I will use the random number generator to pick a winner on Friday, the 28th at 9:00 p.m.

I’m still here!

I just wanted to add a quick post to let you know I am still around! Things have been a little crazy around the Kersteter household as we get into the swing of having a child in elementary school. Trying to get Justin out to the bus (he’s in p.m. kindergarten) is proving to be a bigger challenge than I thought. I seriously have to start feeding him lunch at 10:45! He is just soooo pokey! We are slowly starting to get into a routine. I’m going to be finishing the calendar pages for my upcoming Calendar Class this week and weekend. I’m expecting the man in brown to show up with my goodies for my upcoming Stamp A Stack on Thursday, too. I’ll be posting those designs either this weekend or next week. Thank you for hanging in there with me and I promise I’ll be back with some eye candy (and maybe even some BLOG CANDY) this week! More details will follow…….
