Your toughts!?! and a question for you.

You all know by now that I do love My Digital Studio (referred to as MDS )... Well I was able to create my blog banner with it, business cards and I did this:
The picture was taken a few nights ago with my cell phone but you can still see it clearly :-) 

Now, my quick question... I will be starting a new Technique Club and need to know which evening would work best for you?  Looking forward to ready your comments soon!  Tomorrow I will have more information about that club.  Nighty Night! Time to sit down and enjoy a movie with the family!!!

Quick scrapbook project... of course I did it with MDS

Have you decided to treat yourself to a $119 gift yet:-) If you are thinking about it, remember that it is only available until July 31st and that I am also adding a $20 shopping spree to all the goodies that are already included in the mini Starter kit.  Still have questions, good news, come on over on Friday or Saturday evening for my opportunity night and just ask away!  It is free, I don't bite and you won't go home empty handed... I will think of a FUN project for you to do and take home. CLICK HERE for more details or EMAIL me and let me know if you want to come on Friday or Saturday evening... now on with my quick project...

...It doesn't happen very often that I get to see my little guy fall asleep.  Last week-end it was simply too hot to sleep on the 2nd floor of the house so I offered to go camping... in the basement :-)

So we did.  Best campsite ever, lol! BIG Plasma tv, no mosquitos, bathroom, snacks and a movie...

Only downside, inflatable mattress... how many time do you have to re-inflate yours, lol! but it was still fun and I might try to do it again before school starts up in September...
Hope this inspires you to create with MDS and for those of you that are still scared of the program, well YOU CANNOT BREAK IT :-) ha, ha! this last sentence was dedicated to one friend in particular... please don't hate me, I am only teasing you...  Next time you come over, I'll make it up to you.

Have a great Wednesday!

Yesterday's Stamp-a-Stack... Inspired by talented Demos :-)

Here is a quick group picture of the cards that everyone got to take home :-)  10 in total with envies (unless you are in my downline then you get a special price and no envies, that way it will count towards your sales)
This next picture is the way I had everything set up!  5 stations and you get to move around the table.  Now you know why I only usually let 5 people come at a time.  That being said, I have another table that I can use and I could accommodate 8 people no problem... no more than 8 though unless you are willing to bring your own chair, lol!
Well, yesterday was quieter as it is summer, people are away on vacation so since it was a smaller group, we got a special treat... I wish I could share but don't know if I should.  I'll give you hints... it was in a liquid form, it was served "chilled" in a wine glass ;-)

RSVP now for the next one on August 20th by clicking HERE.

Spoiled rotten :-) Want some too?

I am 100% sure that you would love it... This is a quick picture of SOME OF THE STUFF I got for free this year at Convention.  I still need to get my butt in gear and finish unpacking, lol!   So keep coming back to see more of the freebies throughout this week.  Would you like to attend with me next year?  Here's what you need to do...
Join in on the fun for a ridiculous low price (mini starter kit @ $119) PLUS by doing so before July 31st, you will also be getting a keepsake box (and supplies) for free... valued at $50+. Remember, there is no shipping and only PST on the starter kit.  If your Province as HST, then it is NO TAX either.
I am also throwing in a $20 shopping spree... So no more excuses, contact me today and join in on the fun!!!  Trust me, I don't bite :-) Ask away and I'll gladly help you :-)

Then, invite your friends to play with you and stay active as a Demonstrator.  To do so, you'll need your sales to be of at least $400 before December 31st (yep not a typo, that's an average of $80 per month from August to December ) and then another $400 before March 31st and one last time by June 30th.  Remember, all of these purchases will also give you a minimum of 20% back. These last requirements are if you want to come to Convention as a Demonstrator.  Sometimes, they will allow us to bring ONE guess, if room permits, so why risk it?  If you are like me, I used to spend more than $150 per month at the "M" store, lol.

I'll see you real soon!

Did you know... Hobbies for Happiness...

Make room in your life for pastimes you choose.  It can improve your health and your mood.

Many of us believe that because we hardly have time to pay the bills or eat breakfast sitting down we couldn’t possibly have time to find a hobby to appreciate.  Researchers have found that hobbies not only boost your mood, but they can help your physical health too.  Studies found that who spend time in their hobbies lower their risk of heart disorders when compared to those continuously working for very long hours.  Not convinced hobbies are worth it?  Consider these reasons.

Hobbies can relax your mind by staying out of work and concentrating on a thing you like. Thus they can help you reduce your stress level.  Hobbies are very similar to meditation. Both in meditation and hobby you try to reach a common goal, happiness.  There are no rules when it comes to choosing a hobby.  It my be gardening or watching good movies or wood carving or listening to music or reading books or even it may be sleeping.  Think of them as a social or even family opportunity.  You can spend time with your children while completing tasks together.  Hobbies lead you a path to your happiness and also to the happiness of your family.

Now, Stampin'Up! is offering a mini starter kit at $119 plus PST (which means that if your live in a province that has HST, you pay no taxes...) and there is no shipping when you get the starter kit!  Even if you were to get the kit just because it is an awesome deal and do NOTHING OTHER THEN ENJOY YOUR HOBBY, I would be more than happy to have you in my team :-)  Quick, this offer is only valid until the end of July... JOIN NOW on the left and talk to you soon!
