November 22, 2014


We are in the <agonizing> throes of getting ready to move. This process seems to be never ending, and is causing tons of undue stress in my life. To be perfectly honest, I could do with a great session of Creative Therapy right about now. 

Alas, a real hands-on creative session is not possible. You see, even though I kept out a Paper Pumpkin kit, thinking I could work on that in times of dire need, I have made even that plan go awry. Paper Pumpkin kits come with everything you need to create, except the acrylic block that arrives with a subscriber's first kit. My acrylic blocks have been packed away, and I know not where they have gone. My daughter, Emily, was here last weekend, and she took charge of all my Stampin' Up! goodies. With the stacks and stacks of sealed up boxes adorning that area, I wouldn't dare even try to locate them.

Well, I needed to create SOMEhow. So I turned to my ever-present MDS (My Digital Studio) for my hit of creativity. I know it's not the same as getting all inky and running stuff through my Big Shot, but I could still turn on my creative juices and get some satisfaction.

I came up with this little Thanksgiving greeting for all of you:

I am thankful for all of you who read my blog and especially when you leave me those precious comments. I hope that through Paper Seedlings, I have been able to inspire you in some aspect of your creativity.

Speaking of Thanksgiving makes me think of Black Friday. Although, working in retail, unfortunately it should now be called Black Thursday, as our store opens with all its wonderful deals at 6:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. 

Anyway, Stampin' Up! has their own version, Online Extravaganza, starting on Monday, November 24, and running through Monday, December 2. You can check out all the details here:

Honest, it is truly an Extravaganza! There are special Doorbusters just for Monday, November 24, as well as different Doorbusters only for Monday, December 2. During the entire week of the Extravaganza, you can enjoy deals of 20-50% off the regular prices of catalog yummies. Items are as low as $2.48!

When you are ready to lap up all this Extravaganza goodness, remember to name me as your demonstrator! 

Love to you all.

A good friend of mine used to do stampin' up and she threw the best events where we all walked away with 20 handmade greeting cards at the end of the night. I loved it! I used them throughout the year. So many amazing things you can do! Have a great Thanksgiving & thanks again for linking up. :)
