Sunday Stuff

Hi, bloggy friends! I haven't posted lately because really...there hasn't been much to post about! I haven't been sleeping all that great (again!), and so I've been pretty much just been dragging butt throughout the days. Not much fun! The weather has cooled off some, but it's been no traveling either. Because I haven't felt that great, I haven't been stamping at all. And I have all that super cool new stuff too!!! At least I did get decent sleep last night, and as soon as I post this, I'll be heading upstairs to work on my longgggg list of projects!

When I woke up this morning I had an email that said:
Ohmygosh! I won $100.00!!!! You have to check out their website HERE if you love papercrafting - all kinds of fun stuff! Including these lovelies:
This is a brand new Nestabilities die set: Floral Flourishes

Another new Nestabilitie die set: Poinsettia Creations

Nested Crowns die set

I've been wanting some metal charms for my cards and found some great ones on this site! Including these travel ones - perfect for PARIS cards, lol!

These brass (and silver below) charms are really small and work for any occasion card.

Pretty brass (and silver below) key charms.

Pirate charms! Arrrgh!!!!

This product allows you to get the "crackle glass" effect with less fuss!

Pine green and fuchsia pink, extra fine Flower Soft!

Pink (and 2 packs of white below) orchids!
I got ALL OF THAT STUFF, for $99.85! I really know how to shop, lol!!


Thomas and I have been talking, and we already know where we are going to be stationed next. His branch manager even said it was a breeze to get for him! (YAY!) Here are some hints:
Can you guess yet???
How about now?
Yep - HAWAII!!
Looking forward to moving there Summer 2013!

And until then, we plan to indulge in all things Italian first, lol!!!


In great anticipation of my upcoming European Convention, I went to VistaPrint to order some things! Including some business cards (all the better to pimp my blog, yo!).
It's being held mid-November, so I got the 2012 calendar on the back!

I also got a matching pen (actually 3!)...

...and notebook too!

I ordered these labels to put on the back of my swap cards, so people will know who made them!

Look what I made!!! You can customize wrap-around mugs there too! Just upload whatever picture or graphic you want! I saw another Demonstrator with a blog mug, but she had hers done in the States. So I "googled it" and saw that VistaPrint did these as well!! I'm soooo goin' to be stylin' in PARIS!!!! And I can hardly wait!!!!!



I recognized Hawsii right off. My nephew and his wife are there right now on Oahu. Loved all the goodies you scarfed up for less than 100. Congrats on winning the 100. LOVED the Vista Print Stuff. I will have to do that! I make my own business cards so I can do Market in Atlanta...but loved yours.

You live a charmed life my friend!

Regina said...

Well..well..well Lil Missy, seems you truly are the QUEEN. (hehe) Get OUT!! Congrats on the $100 win and OMGOSH you spent it very well I must say!!

I knew from the mountain photos just where your next adventure was taking you. I have never lived there but I have been there and it is a beautiful full of inspiration.

I love all of your goodies and WOW I think I might just have to order a cup with a few of my faeries on it...awesome idea. Have fun at the event.

Hugs and feel better wishes,

Catherine said...

Wow! HI - that's awesome! Is it for sure or kinda for sure? You and Bella can be beach bunnies! And Thomas, too. ;)

Shell~AK Stamper said...

Wahoooooo what a wonderful place to be stationed next!!
Congrats on your winnings, and new vista items!


Mimi said...

Hawaii, what an excellent next post. Bella is going to be so well travelled!


Toriz said...

Aha! See... I said you'd be getting more stuff soon! *Giggles*

Hawaii... Nice! :)

AliceKay said...

I hope you're feeling better now and getting the sleep you need.

Congrats on winning the $100 gift certificate. Looks like you found some really cool stuff.

Hawaii?? I am so envious. :)

Rita said...

I was drooling over all the cool stuff you picked out for you grand prize winnings! And then--Hawaii? OMG! Expect to see lots of beautiful photos when you move. Love all your cool business stuff you ordered, too. Have fun at the convention! :)

KatCollects said...

Lots of cute stuff!!! It's so funny to me that Matthew might try to get tranferred to Italy and is in Hawaii now, and you are going to Hawaii from Italy! He will be here in 3 days for 2 wonderful weeks!!! We have some fun things planned and he will help us celebrate Sarah's 16th Birthday on the 9th. His wife will join him a little later, she couldn't get that much time off from work. I am so happy they are both coming home for a little while. Wishing you a beautiful week with your family. Big hugs to you

Intense Guy said...

Now to see how the moving goes from Italy to the States... maybe it works much better that way.. I'm sure gonna be hopin' so!!

ChicagoLady said...

So will you actually be stationed on the big island? My sister co-owns a house in Kailua-Kona. You will love living on the islands!

Heatherlyn said...

Wow. How fun to win $100.00!!!!

And how fun would that be to move to fabulous places every 2-3 years. It sounds fun to me!!!!! Maybe that makes up for having to live in Georgia. LOL!!! I'm so glad you get to live in some great places and have wonderful experiences!!!

Mary said...

OMG! You're going to Hawaii! I'm stricken green with envy!!!! Well, just another excuse for me to visit...I gotta show you all the good local spots! So happy for you!

Christina said...

Hawaii No Ka 'Oi!

My son was transferred from Hawaii to CG Air Station L.A.X. last year, then he made Chief (Yay!), and has just been transferred to Elizabeth City, N.C., where he'll be an instructor at the aviation school. He and his wife just bought a beautiful house on the Outer Banks, and are busy making it perfect, and hopefully, making grandchildren for this old man.
