Retirement Fever

This past week I have not been feeling myself.  I haven't had the same energy
 or the ability to stay awake and work on my crafts.  
Today I woke up feeling better and it feels so good to start catching back up 
on emails and housework.
Yes, I actually said it felt good to do housework.  It's funny how something you
 usually dread can become quite  fun.  
I do find myself suffering from one ailment today.  Yes, I have Retirement Fever.  
I'm sure you will find it quite contagious.
 The list of retiring stamp sets was released  on April 15th, and tomorrow Stampin’ Up! will announce the list of retiring accessories. (Sizzix Dies, punches, paper, buttons, etc)
These products are only available until May 31st (or while supplies last in the case of accessories
If there is  something you still have on your wish list from the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalogue, please contact me ASAP, so I can get it ordered for you...I don't want you to miss out!
I know I will be setting my alarm to wake up at 2am and see if 
Stampin' Up! has posted the list.  

Are you wondering why these things are retiring?  It is to make room for the new catalogue that will be out on June. 1st, 2012.
Mark on your calendars Monday, June 4th from 1pm – 9pm for my Catalogue Launch Party

This 2 page layout features the Medallion stamp.  It is retiring and I will be tucking it into my personal stash to be loved and used for many years to come.

This is also a great time to host a class or a Retiring Stamps Party.  I have Sunday, May 6 and Sunday, May 27th available.  My hostesses will be spoiled.

My favourite Retiring Stamps


Stampin' Up! has announced their retiring stamp sets for this year.  The current catalogue is coming to an end on May 31st and some of the stamp sets will not be returning.
You might be thinking that I must be so sad to lose some of my stamp sets.  Gosh, no!!!
Many of them I will tuck into my personal collection.
Oh, and if I don't own them?  Yes, there are some stamp sets that I don't own.
What better excuse then "I just have to have them because they are going away"
I am placing an order for a few that are on my wish list this week.
Zoo Review, Pursuit of happiness, and  Sweet Floral, are among the retiring sets.
Are there some stamp sets that you "need".  Place an order with me online or by contacting me this week and I won't charge you any shipping.  In fact I will pay the tax for you too.
So place and order by this Saturday, April 21, 2012 and pay just the catalogue price.
That's a huge savings!!!!
To find the retiring list:
There is a little blinkie on the left of my website here that says promotions and it will take you to

I would be happy to email you an attachment of the retiring list.
