Whew, we've made it!  We have qualified for the 2010 Cruise to the Southern Caribbean.  I entered the last order at 11:50pm, our time, so we even had an hour to spare.   Thanks so much to all of you that turned out in full to help a desperate demo and took advantage of an awesome special.  Thanks again. Now, who wants to babysit a slightly active, precocious, sparkly, then to be 3 year old.  Mom says "no thankyou".  :)  Seriously, we will be foregoing a family vacation this summer in lieu of taking the 3 of them on the cruise.  (Going to the Cabin for a long weekend doesn't count as a family vacation as there is no running water and just outdoor bathroom facilities!  If one needs to bathe in the creek, it counts as purgatory and not a vacation)


We will be visiting Barbados, Antiqua, St Lucia, and St. Maarten.  We've worked really hard for this incentive trip but I can't do it without all of you.  I really have to laugh.  I spend 4 years in college to earn my Medical Technology degree and get hired at the VA Hospital in Milwaukee, then start my Stampin' Up! career some time later.  Which of the two professions would you rather work at, culturing bacteria on a plate and dealing with blood, OR partying with rubberstamps and friends.  AND when has the VA Medical Center ever sent me on a week long trip for two to some warm and balmy locale.  This "hobby" has been such a blessing to me and my family.  I'm thankful for the "part time" work at the hospital and that I can do such great things with this Stampin' Up! business.  I'd love to share the Stampin' Up! opportunity with you and see if a rubberstamping business will fit your needs.  Call me at 262-521-3194.

So now it's out with the old and in with the new.  We have a brand new catalog that debuts TODAY at 12:00 MT.  I will have a link up here shortly thereafter for the new catalog.  Of course it's much better in person!  They are sitting on the back counter in the stamp room.  Come and GET THEM.  I have the Catalog Kickoff scheduled for Thursday, July 9th. And the fun never stops, SU will announce a weekly special today for one item shown in this photo.  Can you guess which one is one sale for this week?  It's a great deal!  Stay tuned!
