I’m Back! November CD Calendar & On Stage @ Home

Oh boy, it’s been awhile since I posted anything but I’m back and will try to do better.  I have been busy working on next years CD calendar designs and getting ready for classes this week. It takes a bit of planning to make sure you aren’t using the same color ink for duplicate pages and that you have enough blocks. I own quite a few blocks and this event uses every one of them. Once I have it all planned it’s a pretty easy class. Each month’s supplies are in its own plastic container and people just pick up one of them and create their page. Once finished they return it to the table and pick up another one. This has become my most popular class. With the pandemic I had not been doing classes and I got several inquiries hoping I was going to do this one. This is my 11th year doing the calendar. I always give them to my family and a few special friends. This year I am making 19 to give away. Whew! That’s a lot of work.


Stampin' UP! OnStage@Home 2020 ready for online stamping event! www.PattyStamps,com

Stampin’ Up just had their annual On Stage @ Home  event which of course had to be virtual this year. It was certainly different and I missed being with friends and the excitement of being together at a live event but they did an outstanding job holding it all online. It’s always a paid event however with earned points I was able to sign up with no charge. There were 10,000 people signed up. The first night it began with a concert by Pat Benatar and her husband. It was amazing. The next two days were filled with stamping demonstrations and special classes sharing business ideas. 

Prior to the event we were able to preorder a bundle from the upcoming mini catalog. I love anything with a punch and this set is awesome. The little embellishments are tiny ladybugs. Too cute! 

These were used during a presentation and we could follow along and do a few cards however I elected not to do them at that time. I did however quickly make a different card when my upline, Catherine Harwood, posted a challenge to those of us who were attending the at home event. 


One advantage of the virtual event was that I could multitask and I worked on my CD calendars and keep up with the election results. 


This is how my day began yesterday. I had a political sign in my front yard which I decided to put away Friday afternoon. Saturday morning I looked out my front window and there was a sign in the yard. Same size and in the same place as the one I had put away. My mind went crazy for a second thinking someone must have put another political sign in my yard. Imagine my surprise when I went out to look.

PEO, Philanthropic Educational Organization, is an international organization dedicated to the education of women. I did indeed feel very special. 


Thanks for looking and have a blessed day.

    I find myself in the same situation with my Christmas Sampler class – finding enough blocks for all the stamps needed to complete the project. I like your idea of separating out the materials for each section. This is definitely going to help in my planning this week.
