Happy Gobble, Gobble Day Crafty Friends,
I hope today finds each and everyone of you surrounded by those you enjoy and that many new memories are made...
We are not hosting the 30 + family members that we have done for the past 3 years since moving back to Chicago and I am so looking forward to spending a calm and quiet day feasting with our immediate family. Even better - we have friends stopping by later for dessert and board games - perfect!

Here is a glimpse of the monthly kits that I offer to qualifying orders and how they come and what you can expect. I don't make you buy certain stamp set and dies, you just simply need to purchase $40 (before tax and shipping) through my Stampin' Up! online store and use the monthly Hostess Code. That's it - get products that you love and will use!
I am truely thankful for all of your friendships and loyalty, thank you again...
