Time to Get Moving Again!

Well, the Christmas break is well and truly over today.
My house is so quiet right now. Mark is back to work. Emma is back to school. the sound of quiet.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE having my family home and getting to spend time with them, BUT, I also love the absolute peace in this house when it's just me and the dogs. I feel like I can think again. Know what I mean?
Since my "office" is in the house, sometimes my work life and home life get muddied and frankly I struggle with that. I think it would be easier sometimes to have an "office" to go to. That I have to physically leave the house to get to. But, then I remember why I work from home in the first place and I'm grateful all over again for that HUGE blessing.
Yes, sometimes it's true. I am the blogger sitting at the computer in my pj's. Ha!
And NO, I won't post a picture of that! I'll spare you, k? :)

So, now that Christmas and New Years are behind us, I'm checking out my January calendar. It's kinda like December all over again! We have skating travel to Boston this weekend, leaving Thursday. (Emma is ecstatic that she only has school two days this week!)
We have skating travel to Hershey, PA at the end of the month for four days and I'll be traveling to San Antonio, Texas for four days for the Stampin' Up! Leadership conference.
Add into that mix, six Stampin' Up! events, skating practice galore and being part of a new church plant in our area, I've got a busy month ahead!
Maybe I'll schedule in some Naps!!

One of the highlights of my trip to San Antonio is the annual Advisory Board Reunion meal. This year, it's a luncheon, which pretty much guarantees that I won't oversleep and be late for it.
Oh, yes......I did.......sigh.
Here's the gorgeous invitation that came in the mail a few weeks ago. It has a little sneak peek of a new Occasions Mini product on it too:

Isn't it gorgeous?
So, can you guess the sneak peek product? If you have your new mini, you should be able to figure it out pretty quickly!

If you don't have your new mini catalog yet, let me know and if you're not working with a local demonstrator, I'd be happy to send you one!
My Product Shares begin tomorrow too. I have four different options to choose from: Ribbon; Buttons, Brads and DoDads; Designer Series Paper and the "I Want It All" Collection.
The "I Want It All" Collection contains everything in the other three shares for only $33.82!! (shipping to you is $2 extra)
My clients received the information in an e-mail over the weekend and those who attended my Open House last week got to see the new products up close and personal. So, needless to say, share groups are filling fast so don't miss your chance to get a fun sampling of the great new accessories in the Occasions Mini!
I'll be posting complete details and photos tomorrow, but if you want the info today, simply e-mail me at and I'll forward my client newsletter to you.

Happy back to work and school day everyone!
Here's a fun video to help you get up and moving today. It's a cool, toe-tappin' song collaboration by Mandisa and TobyMac. You'll love it!
Happy Stampin',
