The Coaster Calendar plus Post it Notes that I posted on July 13 has been wildly popular, so I’ve decided to do a give away. For every $50 Stampin’ Up order purchased from my online store using Host Code UGQHHRVJ, I’ll send you the supplies to make your own coaster calendar. This includes two pieces of 4 x 4 coaster board, two pieces of Stampin’ Up! DSP cut at 4 1/8 x 4 1/8, one calendar, one small stack of post it notes and two coordinating ribbons. If you purchased these products on your own, you would probably spend almost $50. For every $100 Stampin’ Up order purchased from my online store using Host Code UGQHHRVJ, you’ll get the supplies to make your own coaster calendar plus a second coaster calendar completely finished by me. Here’s the link to my online store. I only have a limited amount of supplies, so please order soon! My offer will be combined with the Stampin’ Up! Bonus Days offer in which you’ll get an additional 10% back to spend in August.
I’m a designer for the Use Your Stuff Challenge blog and this week our challenge is to use floral patterned papers on your project. Please join the challenge here.
Here’s a video I made last year showing how to make these Coaster Calendars.
This will be an exciting week because we are getting on our bikes for a couple days and riding across Iowa. Isn’t that what everyone does when they become empty nesters for five days? Here’s a link explaining RAGBRAI. We are only doing two days out of seven and both days are around 70 miles. So if you’re wondering if I’ve ever ridden 70 miles on my bike in one day, the answer is no. Superman has participated a couple days for each of the last four years, so for him 70 miles is no big deal. Superman and I go to cycle classes at our YMCA and I typically ride about 20 miles in 45 minutes. Never mind that I’m in air conditioning with a fan blowing on me, no possibility of falling down, only fake hills that I create by upping my gears and not on a crowded road. I did do one day of RAGBRAI two years ago and I loved it! It was 75 degrees and cloudy, almost no hills and the ride was around 45 miles. I’ve had it on my bucket list since I was 14 to ride on RAGBRAI, but didn’t do it until I was 50. I thought I was pretty smart to participate on a beautiful day with short mileage and not many hills. Unfortunately this year will be much hotter, longer and way more hills. We’ll see how smart I feel this year. 🙂 My sister-in-law Peg will always be just a cell phone call away. If at any point I’ve decided I’ve had it, I’ll call Peg and she’ll swoop in and rescue me. Two of Steve’s brothers, Bill and Mike are going with us. Please pray for us that everything goes smoothly and no one gets hurt.
