Victoria Day weekend celebrations

Here is hoping that everyone had an amazing Victoria Day weekend! After two months of battling the worst strain of pnemonia I have ever had I am starting to feel human again with a little extra energy for more than just making it through the work day and sleeping! 

I spent my long weekend gardening and landscaping the front and backyards for the summer while my spouse repaired our fences and built storage in our outdoor sheds - however I did squeeze  in a wee bit of paper crafting time on Sunday afternoon with my upline to finally put something new on my blog here for you all! 

We made this cute little dual drawer gift box  ... this project features the Matchbox Bigz Die which is on the retiring list so if you like what you see be sure to order it before May 31st when it will be gone.

 The drawers could hold jewellery, candy, tea bags, lottery tickets or whatever your imagination can think of as a little 'thank you' hostess gift or thinking of you gift for a loved one!

I finally got a chance to get a sneak peek at the upcoming 2012-2013 catalog and I am SO EXCITED by some of the new products we are coming out with and some gorgeous new stamps sets and In Color paper ... plus we have revamped our Stamp Pads and I got to try one at my upline this weekend and WOW LOVE THEM ... nice even yet juicy coverage of ink and no needing to twist to get into the nooks and crannies of the bigger stamps - it was awesome!

I will be sending out my June newsletter at the end of the month with my upcoming class schedule and new catalog kick off Stamp a Stack for June so let me know if you are wanting to attend!

Happy Stampin'
