Planning Ahead — Sale-a-Bration and 2017 Occasions Catalogs

I’m in Phoenix Arizona today at Stampin’ Up!’s “OnStage Local” convention.  The “OnStage Live” convention, like the one I went to last year in Brussels, is in Brisbane, Australia this year and it started on the 3rd.  At approximately 5:07 p.m. today I’ll be giving a 15 minute presentation that introduces several products from the upcoming Sale-a-Bration event (January 3 – March 31) and new 2017 Occasions catalog (January 3 – May 31).  It’s been fun using products unseen by almost anyone for 2 months.  I’m still not sure when I can share the 15 items that I created.  But when that day arrives you can be sure I’ll start posting them.  It’s also been very interesting working with stamp sets, framelits/thinlits and Designer Series Papers that no one else has worked with.  I had to turn on my very own creative juices and it-was-fun-and-invigorating!

Blythe's OnStage Local projects
Pretty exciting projects aren’t they???  These will be posted on a board in what we call “the gathering place”.


Stampin’ Up! will begin sending the Sale-a-Bration Brochure and 2017 Occasions Catalog via USPS on December 5th to current customers whom I have selected from my customer mailing list.  If you would like to receive one of these catalogs, please let me know by  mid-November.  I will remind you again later in the month.

Please send me good energy, vibes, and smiles shortly after 5 p.m. Pacific Time, this afternoon.  I think I’ll be a bit nervous but energized!  I can do it!!!

Quick personal tidbit:  When my nine year old granddaughter last week asked me, in a text, what I was doing, I told her I was working on a project for a Stampin’ Up! event and that I was a bit nervous about it.  Her text replies:  “All you have to do is believe in yourself.”  and “Don’t go in doubting.”  and “I bet you will nail it!”   Nine years old!  Her parents are doing a great job creating self-esteem and an ‘I can do it attitude’ in their children.

I can and will nail it!  🙂
