My Christmas Stamp A Stack

Get an early start making your own personalized Christmas cards!  I will be holding a Christmas Stamp A Stack at my home in Sherrills Ford in November.  The dates that I have set up right now are:  November 4 at 6:30 pm and November 8 at 1:00 pm.  I may be adding more dates in the future. 

The price is:  $35 for 20 cards / $65 for 40 cards / $95 for 60 cards
(amounts will be pro-rated for other quantities)

Sets of cards should be done in 5’s (of same card)

You will pick the cards and how many you wish to make of each design in advance (sets of 5 please) so I can have the packets ready for you when you arrive.  You will need to bring your own adhesive.  I will have glue sticks available for you to use.

If you cannot come but would like to order kits, please contact me for details.

Please call (828-478-9272) or e-mail me (  to reserve a spot.

I will also be offering a Hostess Appreciation gift if you book a Stampin' Up Workshop during the Stamp A Stack event.  You will receive one free package of 8 ½ x 11 cardstock in your choice of color!

Door Prizes will be awarded during the event!  Don't miss out on the fun!!

I have worked hard to make cards that are basically pretty easy to put together (no heat embossing, not a lot of coloring, etc.) but are not too basic in design.

Here are the card designs that you can pick from:

Stitched Stockings

I have had a request for a revision of one of the cards on my Christmas Stamp A Stack.  So I am adding Cards #13 and #14 as seen below.

Plaid Stockings in Cherry Cobbler is #13   /   Dotted Stockings in Real Red is #14

I met Angela and Mom at the surgeon's office this morning ..... at 8:00 which is way too early for me to be up and in town!!  I am NOT a morning person!  Luckily, he did not recommend any major surgery!  We took the x-rays from the Nerve Block Injection that she had on Tuesday so he could see them.  His recommendation is -  let's see if it works; even possibly having to redo the injection in a few weeks.  If we  determine that it is not working, he can do an out-patient surgery to relieve the pressure on the nerves.  The doctor would use a microscope to see and protect the nerve roots, and safely remove the portion of the disc that has herniated. Removing the fragment of disc material that is pressing on the nerve eliminates the pressure on that nerve.  

After the doctor's appointment, we went to breakfast and then I headed home.  I worked fast and furious until my club ladies came at 1:00.  We have started a painting project .... well, let's rephrase that - Sonny is doing the painting!!  We Sonny is going to paint the interior of our house.  I am tired of the white and cream that is on all the walls.   He did the living area yesterday.  I was surprised that he did the whole room in one day!  I stayed out of the way and he never even got cranky!!  When I got home today, we did a little bit of touch up in the corners and then moved all the furniture back in place.  We finished about 30 minutes before club started!   I have been wanting to do this painting for about a year but never really pushed him about it - mainly because I couldn't decide what colors I wanted.  Finally, when he got in the mood to go buy the paint last week, I knew I had to make a decision.  I have a painting in my hall that is matted in a sorta suede brown so that is what I chose for the den, hallways and foyer.  We are going to hire someone to come in and do the foyer since the ceiling is 18 feet tall!!  We have also bought the paint for the dining room.  I am going to match a valance that I have in there and paint the room burgundy.  There is a chair rail so I will leave the bottom white and cream.  Now to figure out about the kitchen.  Ashley gave me a suggestion that I think I am going to go with and paint it a mustard-y color.  When I was in Gig Harbor, I worked at a ceramics painting shop and painted a mustard-gold rooster.  As I was moving the rooster out of the den yesterday, I decided I liked the color and that's what I will paint the kitchen!   That color will also go in Sonny's office/den.  I think it will be perfect with his black and gold Steeler stuff that he has in there!!

OK - my bed is calling my name - time to go visit it!
