Where is the Inking info?

If you are reading my blog, you're probably trying to figure out why there isn't anything regarding stamping & inking.  I created this blog in order to get ready for a blog hop that I will be participating in starting on Monday, September 5.  I hope that you will come back to see what the blog hop has to offer.  Anyway, I am really excited about trying to get my blog up and running, so I thank you in advance for your patience. 

Hope to see you at the blog!

We Survived Irene!

Well, after panicking for a few days, the hurricane has come and gone.  I think by the time it got to my area it had been down graded to a tropical storm.  The whole thing was nerve racking so I am glad it is done with.  We had someone come and take some trees down the day before the hurricane (knowing that they wouldn't survive the wind) then we packed some things and went to stay with other family members.  Just a little water in our garage is the only thing that affected us.  I am just thankful that we are okay and that the storm didn't destroy my things.  The picture attached is from the mall in my town.  I guess kayaking is the way to go!  I hope everyone else is safe.

Hurricane Irene

So weird out here on the East Coast.  I live about 60 miles north of New York City and am nervous and confused as to what to expect with this hurricane.  Although I am not in the direct path, there is still some scary weather coming our way.  Do we stay in our house or do we find a place to go to? Do I have enough supplies in case we have no power for days?  I may not have enough snacks to keep my kids entertained, but I definitely have enough Stampin Up! supplies to keep me going.  Let's just see how much I get accomplished.

Hope everyone stays safe!

Getting started

Hi out there.  I am in the process of setting up my very first blog and I am having a hard time figuring it all out.  I 'm hoping that Barnes & Noble has a Blogging for Dummies book.

I love Stampin' Up products so much that I became a demonstrator to support my own habit.  I'm currently in the process of reorganizing my craft room so that I can best utilize all of my products and actually get some projects going.  So far I have been really good at buying things, but I never organize my time properly to actually sit down and get something accomplished.  I'm hoping that once my children go back to school, I will become a stampin fool  (LOL, that rhymes).

Ok, wish me luck.  Next time I hope to have some pictures or something up on my blog.  Any advice someone can give would be greatly appreciated.
