It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...okay, that's not true at all...it's a warm, sunny morning here in eastern Pennsylvania. That said, I'm getting a head start on my holiday cards, custom boxes and bags, personalized gift tags, decorative wrapping paper, etc. And I have to tell you, the upcoming Stampin' Up! July-January Mini Catalog has me swooning and getting into the holiday spirit early. Just wait until you see the new Stampin' Up! Whimsy and Wonder Suite which includes the Whimsical Trees Stamp Set.
The catalog will be released on August 3 -- watch your email (or visit my website) for special announcements on that day!
Take a look at my very first play with this awesome suite!

Crafting In The Stamping Nook Facebook Group
As a creative coach, I am here to help you with your projects -- I do not have to be your demonstrator for me to help! We are a community of crafters learning from each other! Members are encouraged to share crafty and DIY projects of all types (and of any brand), share tips, and of course meet others with the same crafting passion. I often share my projects, tutorials, etc., and of course, incorporate fun activities as well (prizes included)! I hope you join & participate so I can learn from you too! Everyone is welcome -- demonstrators included!
Find all my events and classes in one place! Have you ever used Meetup? What is Meetup? Meetup is a service used to organize online groups that host in-person and virtual events for people with similar interests. My vision for this group is to gather crafters together -- online and/or in person (when possible) -- for a fun time creating projects, learning new techniques, and of course, meeting other likeminded crafters. This group is for anyone and everyone, no matter your skill level. This group is open to everyone, globally!
I schedule events for making cards, scrapbooking, gift packaging, and more. I also coordinate my card classes to go via Meetup.
