I wanted to be able to still have some new STampin' Up! products, even though I'm not still a demonstrator, so last year I signed up for their Paper Pumpkin! Pretty awesome to get everything you need to make the craft item of the month for only $20. You get a stamp set, paper, pre-cut cards, adhesive, etc. A nice way to obtain new product without spending a fortune. I'm a bit behind making my crafts, so when I get a few done, I'll try to take some pictures and post them here.
Until next time,

Have you heard about the new color refresh? As demonstrators, we are often sad to see some of our favorite colors go away, but as Stampin' Up! tries to stay with color trends to be competitive, they have been refreshed for this year. Below is a chart of the new colors. Many are returning In-colors from previous years. One of my favorite returning colors is Bermuda Bay. It's somewhere between turquoise and teal, and very pretty! The discontinued colors are also listed.

|Lip Balm Folders w/ Avon Lip Balm|
|Night Before Christmas Scroll|
|Travel Tic Tac Toe game|

The Lip Balm Folder is one another demonstrator shared. I copied the instructions for the folder itself, then decorated to my taste.
Have you ever read "Twas the Night Before Christmas" to you children on Christmas Eve? I know I did when my children were younger. It became our tradition after Christmas Eve Candlelight Service to come home and read this story. A couple of years ago, another demonstrator, Lynn Pratt, designed a Night Before Christmas 'SCROLL'. I liked the idea so much, that I made several and gave them to family members to read to their children. This year we welcomed another great-nephew into the family, so he'll probably get a scroll this Christmas. I have also made just a few to sell at the Scenic Drive. If I sell out, I'm willing to take orders for more. They are $10 each.
Tic Tac Toe remains one of my kids favorite games on paper when they are bored and don't have access to other activities. These games are even better than the paper version, since they produce no trash. The game pieces are also magnetic, so it is the perfect traveling game for the kids.
For the finer decorators, the tealight candles are some of my favorite. The flowers are cut from colored craft metal sheets, then embossed for an elegant look and layered on top of glass or mirrored candle plates. The tealight has a small band of colored metal glued on the side, so when the candle burns down, just insert a new candle. They slide in and out very easily. I will also take orders for these when I run out, but will have to order more metal sheets before they can be completed.
Again, I hope you get the chance to stop in and say hello one of the next two weekends in Knoxville.

I also make similar frames with individual first names (usually kids), or last names with wedding dates. I've also done family groups. These are $10 for simple inserts that measure 12 x 5. Prices vary for different sizes. Just give me a call if you are
Thanks for checking in!

These 'Need For Speed' coasters should be just the ticket for the man that likes his 'toys'. They are actually ceramic tiles that are decorated with chipboard to protect the table surface. Want to own a set? Look me up at the Knox County Scenic Drive in Knoxville the first 2 weekends in October.
