Class in the Mail ~ Bear Hugs

What stampers are saying about my Class in the Mail Kit Class:

"Seeing all the details perfectly put together, including the embellishments and taking the time to put a video together explaining colors, detail and what inspired you.
I have purchased many kits, but none with a video so well done. I will be buying many more kits since it's hard for me to get out and go to a class as much as I'd like to." Anjanette S. 

I just love this new stamp set from the Occasions catalog and just had to do it for January's Class in the Mail, I took some time off in December from my classes so I hope you are glad to get back to the fun, I know I am.

Class in the Mail January Bear Hugs Diana Gibbs 

This set is so cute and it has a matching framelit that you can pick as well. I can't show the whole set yet but this is a sneak.
"Bear Hugs" is January's Class in the Mail.
You will receive your very own "Bear Hugs" 17 piece stamp set and the supplies needed to make 4 projects mailed to you by priority mail. You have your choice of wood mount or *clear mount. You can also pick the bundle which includes the  matching 9 piece framelit!!
I only have a limited amount of class kits available, so please sign up right away.
You will need to use your own new stamp set plus inks and adhesives you have at home to make your projects. If there are punched or Big Shot pieces those will be included in your class packet.  
Class fee includes stamp set with project supplies, PDF file, private video link and priority postage.
Prepaid class fees are:
Wood - stamp set only $47.00
Clear - stamp set only $38.00
Wood Bundle - includes stamp set and matching framelit $68.00
Clear Bundle - includes stamp set and matching framelit $60.00
* remember clear mount stamp sets require you to use a clear block and those are sold separately. 
In the Mail Class fee due no later than January 14 (or while supplies last). If you are interested please let me know and I will send you a PayPal link. Thanks!

I will mail class packets the week of January 25.  After I send out the class in the mail kits I will email you a PDF with close up pictures as well as a link to a private video so you can see how to make the projects.  It's like having me in your home.
You will need to email me at or if the link does not work, to get the paypal link for the class fee. I am doing this so that I can keep track of how many class in the mail kits are ordered.  I can only do so many. If you don't hear back from me, email me again sometimes there have been email glitches from emailing from my blog.
Please note that my Class in the Mail kits are only available to be shipped within the US. Thanks for understanding.
What if you already have the "Bear Hugs" stamp set but you still want the class in the mail? Just let me know what other item at the same price you would like (it must fit in a priority envelope) and you will get that with your class supplies instead.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Star Wars ~ The Force Awakens

Star Wars

So we went to the movie...and here are some of my observations...not spoilers cause that would make me mad if I read about it first without seeing it (geesh we only just saw all of them for the first time a month or so ago so that is good as it was all fresh in our minds)...we thought we would go early Sunday morning to the first viewing since it would be less crowded...ummmm everyone else got that memo too. We had to go to a 45 minute later one as the one we were going to was almost full...who wants to sit with  your nose touching the screen? Why do they even have those seats on the floor? I say use that space for snacks and beverages so you don't have to leave the theater? Heck maybe even a johnny on the spot with a window so you can pee and watch...ok maybe not that...sorry I lost ya go...observation time...

If you can not go longer than 2 minutes without coughing perhaps you need to go see the movie another time.

While waiting for the movie to start I don't care if you play games on your phone...but feel free to MUTE it, I am deaf and could hear the danged thing.

If your kid spills popcorn all over the floor at the steps tell the theater cleaner people so they can take care of it so people are not stepping all over it and grinding it into the carpet.

Don't be afraid to ask me what I am carrying in or out of the theater (just so you know it is the closed captioning thing) that is much nicer than just staring at me and wondering what it is I am carrying.

There was a little bit of SU! in the looks like this...

Botanical Gardens DSP

at least I thought'll know it when you see it.

If your wife says oh no a bouncy kid is sitting in front of me...don't call her a big baby...ok that one is personal...ha!

Have an awesome Monday and thanks for stopping in.
