Bright Stella

I’m finally getting around to sharing Stella’s birthday box. This packaging was made long before OnStage, but it reminds me of the rainbow card Sara made for Stella on stage…although it’s missing glitter! Stella’s favorite color is purple, she loves to craft and ride horses, and she’s a bright spot in our lives!

Give Thanks

Today and every day, I give thanks for the many blessings that are mine, including the challenges that help me grow physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. I’m sure my list is similar to yours, but since this is my blog, it makes me feel good to list some of them, especially on this Thanksgiving Day.

April's Awesome Achievement

April Lopez recently achieved one-million in sales, and we’re so excited for her! She knew she was close to her milestone and would cross over during an event, so she surprised her customers with cupcakes and balloons, and they were thrilled to be part of April’s big moment! 

This card was designed especially for April with her favorite color and stamp set in mind. Congratulations, April!

Fun Four-Day Disney Cruise

After not being together for over 2 ½ years, we welcomed a couple of days in Orlando as a family, and then we went on a fun, four-night Disney cruise. We opened the outside balcony doors between our cabins, so we could visit with the families that opened their drapes (a code everyone understood), there were plenty of activities around the ship for everyone, and the weather was perfect! Even though there will probably always be someone missing (this year Sidney, Cameron, and Owen weren’t with us), we’ve decided that two years is too long in between family reunions!

April OnStage Samples (You Read Right!)

As I was carefully packing up my samples for OnStage this week (I’m so excited to be in Orlando with many of you!), I realized that I never shared my samples from April’s OnStage (product from Stampin’ Up!’s current annual catalog)…as well as the samples from the cruise (grrr!), so here are April’s samples, and I’ll post samples from the cruise in a couple of days.

Happy Halloween

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays at Stampin’ Up! I love getting together and cheering for the teams and individuals who dress up…so creative! And although I don’t have any photos of them, seeing children in costume walk through the building with their parents, collecting treats from everyone’s desks, brings a special spirit into the building. It was a happy Halloween!

Ten Days

Conference weekends, held every April and October, are two of my favorite weekends of the entire year (nearly ten hours of inspiration and counsel—all while lounging in my sweats!), and this conference was no exception.

50 Years?!

Yes, it’s been 50 years since Sterling graduated from Kanab High School—something worth celebrating! Just before Sterling and I enjoyed a lovely dinner in Kanab with almost all of his living classmates and their spouses, I snapped this photo of the class of 1968. It was nice to see everyone and have a chance to catch up!

Gardner Grand 2018

Overall, we felt like it was a good weekend. The thing I love to watch is the interaction between the cousins, especially the older ones with the younger ones. It’s so sweet and probably the thing that makes me want to do it every year!
