Break (Bread) From the Norm


OK, so I have been reading about sourdough starters and I thought I would ask you faithful reader. Have you ever done one, started one?

If so I would love to see your favorite recipes and tips that you have done. What worked for you, what didn't?

I do not have fancy flour (I have bleached All Purpose kind) or yeast at home. I am not going to the grocery store. So maybe it won't even work.

I remember years ago (I mean we lived in our first apartment as newlyweds - so yeah that was 35 years ago!) I did this but someone gave me the starter stuff already in a bag or jar, I have never started I am anxiously awaiting to hear from you.

April Seasonal Card of the Month Class in the Mail - Parisian Beauty

Have an awesome weekend and thanks for stopping in.



April Seasonal Class in the Mail - Parisian Beauty

April Seasonal Class in the Mail

If you have ever been to Paris, or want to go, or gosh even if you have just been to the Paris hotel in Vegas (that is so weird cause you feel like you are outside, and then the bottom of the Eifel tower is right there - it is a mind trip for sure). This set and matching die is a must. I love me a set with a fun postage stamp and cancel out thing. Not to mention all the fun textures too.
For April's Seasonal Card Class in the mail, we will be using the set "Parisian Beauty" and the matching die "Parisian Dies" (shown below). You will need the dies to finish your cards, so please keep that in mind when ordering.
Parisian Dies
These classes have been so popular over the last few years, here are the details if you are new. Each month you will do 10 identical cards, but each month will be a different card. Class fee is due no later than April 10 or while supplies last. I have moved up the class sign up date earlier than normal.
Please note: this is not a club, you can do one month or two or all, or skip one, it is totally up to you.

The Seasonal Card of the Month Class in the Mail is $35.00 per month and this will include one completed card for you to copy from and supplies for 10 matching cards (sometimes the DSP varies but the card is the same) and envelopes mailed to you by priority mail.  You will use your own inks and stamps at home (you can tweak the card with what you have at home if you don't want to use this set), nothing will be stamped on your supplies. As stated above, you will need the matching die to finish your cards.
If you want the stamp set as well you can order it with your class fee for an extra $21.00, (if you want the die, let me know and I can add that too for an extra $27.00 or we can do the bundle $43.00) you save tax and shipping that way - or you can order it through my store #151466 cling* , #151463 die or #153778 bundle along with anything else you may want to order. Let me know if you need it or if you have it already when you sign up for class.
*Remember with cling and photopolymer stamps you will need to supply your own clear blocks, these are sold separately.
Let me know you want to order the Seasonal Card of the Month Class in the Mail and I will email you the paypal link.

Class packets will be mailed the week of  April 27 and I can only ship within the US, thanks for understanding.
If you have any questions, please let me know, you can email me at or call me at 602-339-2776
Have an awesome week and thanks for stopping in.


April INKcentive & Hostess Code - Gilded Gems!

I will be back with this month's Seasonal Class in the mail...but first here are the April INKcentives!!!

Each month I will have a new Host Code that you will use in my online store while ordering. Above is April's code. Please note: Virtual Stamp Club Members this is NOT the code that you will use. You have a private Host Code for this month's Hostess.

All these order totals are before tax and shipping (this way I don't have to say it each time).
When you place an order of:
~$50.00* you earn a Country Dozen Reward Point but place an order of:
~$75.00 you earn the Country Dozen Reward Point and the current month's INKcentive goodie (see below). Goodies do not come with your order.  They are ordered on the first of the following month shipped to me and then sent with your thank you card.  
~As always if you are ordering $150.00 or more you will not use my code (that way you will earn your own Hostess Benefits), but you will still earn the Country Dozen Rewards and the monthly goodie.

This month's INKcentive goodies are the gorgeous Gilded Gems.  These are adhesive-backed, opaque gold gems, it is so hard to show how pretty they are, and so easy to apply.  There are 90 pieces, in 3 different sizes. They are valued at $7.00 before tax and shipping.

INKcentive April 2020

Have a safe and blessed April and thanks for stopping in.
