Episode #466 ~ Jamberry Halloween Nails, Storage & New Nail Designs

Hi Friends,

  Yippee - Halloween is almost here and I am all ready now that I've got my uber cute Jams on!!! These truely just make me so happy and the Tru Shine Gel System is the absolute way to go in order to  easily get 2-3 weeks out of your Jamicure.

  Check out all the adorable nail wrap designs I purchased and I also got some free sets because I was my own hostess! You can too - the free stuff begins with a $150 order/party and just gets better and better from there.

  I can't express enough the comfort I experience knowing that I don't have to worry if the instruments at a discount nail salon have been sterilized and properly sanitized. That is not a concern when I can do my own nails and not have to worry. Not to mention at $120 for the entire Tru Shine Gel System, I am saving money from here and moving forward. A full set of gel nails at the salon can easily run that or pretty darn close to that. How crazy is that?!@#$%^&*

  Let me know if you have any questions, I am here to help...

Happy Jams,

Episode #462 ~ Stampin' Up! Christmas "Season of Cheer" DSP - Shadowbox

Hi Crafty Friends,

  Happy Wednesday - I am excited to share this fun project that I made today! This weekend is the Christmas Exchange/Party for the Stampin' Up! team that I am apart of. We kick-off the holiday season early so we can share our ideas with each other and I can then share them with all of YOU!!!

  We each make a handmade gift for the exchange and I created this whimsical shadowbox using several different stamp sets from Stampin' Up!. All the papers are from the "Season of Cheer" Designer Series Paper Pack (DSP) from our 2015 Homemade for the Holidays Seasonal catalog. I also edged all around the entire box with out super cute green holiday ribbon. And I wrapped it all up with a festive jingle bell from our Christmas Tag Kit to add some cheer.

  I hope you like this product and it gives you some ideas for a gift to give or decor for your home, it really is the MOST wonderful time of the year ~

Thanks for watching and big hugs,
