STAMPIN' UP! CHICKSTAMPER--CREATIVE BLOG HOP & SEDONA RETREAT FUN!!

I wanted to share with you some of the FUN I had this past weekend at my first Chickstamper Retreat!! I rented a dome shaped home in Sedona, AZ that has room for 14 crafters!! Yes, you read that right!! 14 twin beds and 14 craft tables = FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

Here a few of the pillow gifts I made for everyone..

Have you seen the NEW Berry Basket Die? It is so simple to use and makes the CUTEST gift holder! I embossed with the NEW Spring Flowers Embossing Folder and filled them with a sampling of product from the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Brochure!

This cute little bag is made from the new Mini Treat Bag Thinlits! It just requires 2 lines of adhesive and you are ready to decorate! I filled them with Candy Dots for everyone :)

Stay tuned for more projects and class samples from the weekend!!

I am so honored to tell you that I have been nominated to participate today in a BLOG HOP!! A Blog Hop is where you jump from blog to blog looking at everyone's fun projects to see what they are up to!! I hope you will follow along :) I was nominated by my sweet friend KellyJean, who I get to see at our Stampin' Up! convention each Summer!! We have become friends through the years and she asked me to participate...pretty cool, huh?? THANKS so much KellyJean....you can find her blog at www.alwaysstampin.blogspot.com 

I have been asked to answer a few questions as part of the Blog Hop, so here goes...

1. What are you working on?
    This week I'm working on unpacking from my retreat, prepping for this Friday's Card Class and my trip     to Orlando on Sunday for Stampin' Up!'s Leadership conference next week!
 
2. How does your work differ from others in your genre?
    This question has me stumped a little! I have changed my style through the years, and now I do A LOT     more simple designs for a few different reasons---1) I am so grateful and blessed that my business     is doing well and that lends itself to less time to create, lol! 2) I have learned that my customers love to     see my creations that are reproduceable (sp?) so that they can go home and recreate them!! Showing     my customers what I can create is kind of silly...it's all about what THEY can create! :) Nothing makes     me happier than when someone takes my creation and changes it up a bit to fit their style...truly     flattering!!
 
3. Why do you create what you do?
    I create because it gives me peace...creating fun and cute projects helps me relax and escape the     realities of this crazy world. I love to serve others and through my Stampin' Up! business I get to help     others create their projects too!! I am so blessed to be able to have a job that I love, earn some money     to pay a few bills, and have the opportunity to meet and serve others!!
 
4. How does your creative process work?
     Haha...this makes me giggle!! I am definitely a procrastinator and my best work comes at the last     minute of a deadline...it's crazy and something I wish I could change!! I try and try, but somehwere     inside me I know that I probably never will, lol!! This weekend at my retreat, at night when I would crawl     into bed is when I would start designing my swap card I need for Leadership next week! I have it 85%     designed in my head and the materials have been ordered...but the final design probably won't be made     until Thursday or Friday...did I mention I leave Sunday?? I am only making 50, so it won't take that long     to put together, but I have to have the pieces ready to travel, lol!! For inspiration, I look to Pinterest and     our Stampin' Up! Demo site that's called Stampin' Connection for ideas. Once I have a foundation for a     card, I then can build on it as my creative juices flow...
 
I hope you have enjoyed a little insight to my crazy and awesome life!!

I will also be nominating someone to continue the blog hop next Monday!! Stay tuned for that info...
