Baby shower gift

I can't figure out blogger. I always type and then add my pictures, supposedly to the bottom of my post, but it never works out that way. The pictures are always first and then the post...oh well.

I am working on a couple of baby gifts. One shower is Sunday - I don't think the gifts, will arrive on time. But, they will eventually arrive. I am working on two Baby's first year calendars. I am only going to post a couple of pictures right now, because, I don't want to ruin the whole surprise.

March 40%

This post is direct from corporate:

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Retired stamp sets that will be available beginning March 3 at 40% off current retail pricing. Like the rest of the retired items, these have been selected based on our product mix criteria, and do not represent all retired stamps. To help you better set expectations with customers, please note the following:

• Because standard weight-based shipping applies to all of these purchases, there is no reason for customers to wait until stamp sets are released to “combine” a purchase. They can shop now for available items, and later for stamps and receive the same shipping totals.

All stamp sets that were previously posted are no longer in stock.

February's Constant Campaign

Let The Good Times Roll!
Close To My Heart is celebrating an anniversary in 2009—but you get the gifts! That’s right—our founder and CEO Jeanette Lynton marks 25 years as a leader and innovator in the stamping business, and to celebrate, we’re giving all our stamp purchasers a fabulous gift! When you spend $25 in My Acrylix® stamps (K-size customized, Stamp of the Month, and any discounted retired sets excluded), you’ll receive a totally cool, custom-designed B-size stamp set, appropriately titled “Good Times.” It’s a celebration-themed set, with a variety of fun party icons and sentiments like “let’s party” and “hip hip hooray” that are oh, so versatile.

Its Snowing!!!

Woohoo!! It is snowing and we have a chance that is will snow all day!!! We moved to the greater Washington DC area about 2 years ago. I remember always hearing on the evening news, Washington DC is covered in snow. I was so excited when we got our assignment here!! I thought it would snow all of the time. Well, when something like a snow storm hits the news, that means it is big news. It doesn't snow here all of the time. This is about the 5th snow in the 3 winters that we have been here. What a bummer. The kids don't have school today or tomorrow, so hopefully we get some good snow, so that we can go outside and play. Also, hopefully, they will be able to go to school on Wednesday!!! Heaven knows I need the kids in the house, for 3 days in a row!! YIKES!!

My sisters Baby Shower

My sister is having a Baby Girl. I volunteered to make the Shower invitations. I used Close To My Heart More To Adore Paper Pack and the new Welcome Baby Stamp. I Stamped the giraffe in cocoa and colored in the spots in hollyhock. Then to cut out 20 giraffes, I sure hope my Mom and Sister love the invitation. If not, oh well, I do!!! :-) My sister and I are flying to OK in February for the baby shower. I can't wait. I wish we all lived closer, but with my sister and I both being married to the Air Force, I don't see that happening anytime in the near future. Especially since both of our husbands are pilots and fly different planes and they are in different stages of their career.

Anyway, here is a picture of the invitation!! I just love it.

Back to School and a new me!

Today, the kids all went back to school!!! Yeah!!! I had to wake everyone up today.

So, I got the kids off to school and then I went to the gym. I ran 3.26 miles today. I don't think I am going to be getting out of bed tomorrow. Wednesday, I am planning on going to yoga. I have never been - but I think I will try it.

I have Cameron and Kylie enrolled in swimming lessons. They begin tomorrow. Cameron is excited, but Kylie says she doesn't want to go. I think she will have a great time after she gets going, she will have two friends in the water with her!! Yeah, that means, I will have two friends to talk to!!!
