My sister, Judy, sent me this video yesterday.  She lives in Richmond and the video was filmed in Richmond to help raise funds for the public schools, particularly Binford Middle School.  Although Jason lives in California he is originally from Mechanicsville ~ outside of Richmond.  I love the music and the dancing ~ I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have! 

PS:  I forgot to announce the winner of my CONTEST on April 29.  The post highlighted the April PAPER PUMPKIN KIT (purrrrrffect for Tidewater!) and I asked for suggestions for upcoming classes.  I got two emails ~ one from Jane Dodge (eclipse technique) and one from Dorothea Aull (window technique).  I think I can find two different PAPER PUMPKIN KITS and give them both a prize ~ tonight!  Thanks, ladies!


Paper Pumpkin ~ perfect for summer in Tidewater!

This nautical theme is perfect for all of us in Tidewater!

I have an extra Paper Pumpkin to share ~ CONTEST TIME ~ I am looking for suggestions from you for upcoming classes.  Make a suggestion and I will put your name in my SUGGESTION BOX and choose one person to receive this kit!  Comment here or send me an email ~ either way ~ YOU'RE IN!

What's special about March 10?

Paper Pumpkin subscribe by March 10

Stampin' Up! introduced PAPER PUMPKIN five years ago.  Time flies, doesn't it?  If you subscribed during the first several years you might not have been impressed with the pretty red box that arrived in your mail box once a month.  I wasn't.  But, the last several years have proved very different with the quality of the contents in the box, the projects and the creativity!  I find myself enjoying it more and more.  

I will post pictures, tomorrow, of this month's projects.  In the meantime ~ with a 3 month prepaid subscription you also receive your choice of SALE-A-BRATION products.  Definitely an advantage ~ so, put it on your TO DO LIST.  Give me a call if you have any questions or check the video, below, for answers. 


January My Paper Pumpkin?

I have been having computer problems.  I haven't been receiving emails and couldn't send emails.  I spent yesterday, all afternoon, working to correct the problems.  Obviously, I didn't do it by myself ~ way to complicated!!!  Anyway, this My Paper Pumpkin kit is from January and I thought it would be a good reminder about creating and sending Valentines.  Or, about coming to my Valentine Card class tomorrow!  I would need to know this morning (at least by early afternoon) so that I can cut cardstock for you.  EMAIL ME NOW!

With a My Paper Pumpkin subscription of just three months you earn rewards toward SALE-A-BRATION!  Let me know if you have questions.  If you would like to subscribe to My Paper Pumpkin, click here or feel free to contact me for more information.  Susan Elise

The Paper Pumpkin Kit for December makes pretty cards and the stamp set in the box contains the following greetings ~ have a great day, hello, thank you, congratulations & happy birthday.  I think they would make great after Christmas thank you cards!  The white piece behind the cut out designs is white glimmer paper ~ it is hard to tell from the picture!  If you want additional information go to PUMPKINHOWTO.COM.



November Paper Pumpkin Kit

Stockings hung by the chimney with care ~ that's what you will find in your Paper Pumpkin Box this month.  And, did you know that there is a PAPER PUMPKIN FAN CLUB on FACEBOOK that you can join if you want alternative ideas for your kits?  You will find some very creative ideas each month ~ creative contributions from demonstrators and from non-demonstrators ~ it is a great way to share!!! 


Here is a picture that I found this morning on the Fan Club page.  The picture, and the great idea, was contributed by Arlene Dunham who sprayed the stockings with hairspray and ran them through the Big Shot with the Cable Knit embossing folder!  What a great idea!
