JULY 2017 Classes, Specials and More!

Hello Friends!
I survived Convention...what a week it was!  So many of you saw me in photos posted from CTMH Home Office Facebook page, the week was amazing.  Connecting with so many consultant friends, listening to stories of resilience, celebrating recognitions, unveiling of new products, photo scavenger hunts, touring the CTMH Headquarters and so much more!  I can't wait until they post the Convention Highlights video, me and my team were included in it also - I will be sure to share that with you too!  There is a TON of new information to share with you, you'll just have to wait for the unveiling at the Catalog Celebration...until then, my lips are sealed! :o)

Have you heard the excitement for July???  STAMPAGANZA is back...for one month only!  Stampaganza is always a HUGE month for stamp set purchases...BUY TWO, GET ONE FREE!!!  Buy ANY two My Acrylic stamp sets at full retail price and get a third stamp set of equal or lesser value FREE!  Choose from ANY stamp set in the current idea books (Annual Inspirations and Seasonal Expressions 2), PLUS a collection of popular stamp sets that we brought back just for Stampaganza!  I have listed the returning stamp sets under the Monthly SPECIALS tab here on my blog - be sure to check them out!  When you make your stamp set purchases in increments of pairs, Im happy to help you get the biggest bang for your buck!  It works best if you purchase 2 of the same stamp set size (A,B,C,D,E,M) and have the same size for your free set.  The lesser value of the stamp sets will always be your free sets.

I promised my July Newsletter earlier this week, but Ken had something else on his agenda.  While I was away in SLC, he planned to start painting the exterior of our house.  He borrowed scaffolding from a neighbor, and assembled it around the house.  He agreed to paint only areas he could reach on the ground while I was gone.  Since I've been home, I've been having to "spot" him (not that I could catch him if he fell, but could call 911 in a jiffy).  Here's a picture of him on the scaffolding on top of a ladder!  Yikes!  In my younger years, I loved playing on the jungle gyms, but Ken makes me look like Tinkerbell as he jumps from bar to bar!  He's got a new nickname...Monkey Man! LOL  So, thank you for your patience as I am only able to get portions of the newsletter done at a time, when Ken is on the ground or taking a much deserved break.

Feel free to share this blog post with your friends who LOVE to stamp, scrapbook and paper-craft.  I always appreciate your referrals...and I love to reward YOU too!  I sincerely thank you for your continued friendship and support...I truly appreciate YOU!
