I’ve been asked why I haven’t been posting lately? I stamp almost everyday and have been doing lots of stamping related things. Today I looked and realized I have 16 posts that I never published. I’m going to share a few of them over the next couple weeks even though some are a little outdated.
*Note to Altanta Stampin’ Up! demo who used to live in Iowa- You tried to contact me through Facebook and I accidentally erased your message as I was trying to reply to it. Please contact me through email at Beth@StampingMom.com I’m looking forward to chatting with you. 🙂
We had a fun and busy Labor Day weekend. Saturday morning we drove to Davenport to take Grandma Ruby and Grandpa Harold out to The Machine Shed restaurant to celebrate Ruby’s 80th birthday. The weekend before was Grandma Ruby’s 80th birthday celebration but none of us were able to go. Steve and Keegan were in Tijuana, Mexico on a mission trip for Homes for Hope, a division of Youth With A Mission (YWAM.) Steve and I went on this mission trip last year. It was very rewarding to build a house for a family in Mexico in two days. Keegan wasn’t sure he wanted to go, but he loved it! He was the only teenager on the trip. He learned how to use a chop saw, how to frame and how to roof. He also loved the kids, ages two and four and the stray dog that hung out with them. It’s good for a sixteen year old from the USA who has his own room in a nice home, to see that there are lots of people in the world that live in a totally different situation. It was also good for him to see the joy that this Mexican family had, even though they were so poor by American standards. The Mom accepted Christ while they were there, which was amazing to witness.
Anyway we had a great time with Grandma Ruby and Grandpa Harold. I spent the day working on Ruby’s 80th birthday party album. I’ve been a SU demo for about fifteen years. My in-laws were thrilled with the album I made for Ruby. They said it was almost like I was a “professional.” It made me smile. I’m so glad I invested in the large numbers and letters. I use them all the time.
The Stampin’ Up! fiscal year goes from Oct 1 through Sept 30. Due to my sweet customers, awesome downline, and kind people buying “shares” from me, I was able to retain my title of Silver Elite for the second year. Thank you so much! When I go to OnStage in November 2017 and April 2018 I will get to attend the “special” events. I told you last year, that after 15 years of watching others get these special benefits, it was a thrill for me to be included. I feel so blessed to get to do this for a second year. Thank you so much!!

Oh Happy Day, Happy Day! Yep, Abby was home this weekend for the first time since leaving for college seven weeks ago. I drove to get her Friday afternoon and was so excited as I getting closer to Iowa City. Before I actually got to Iowa City I started crying. Not sure what that was…relief to get to bring her home after seven weeks? Her requests for the weekend: go to church as a family Saturday night, make some of her favorite food (Ziti Cucina and Pot Roast), play with the pups and watch a movie with Superman. Yep, he’s a pretty super Dad too!
