I am trying to get back in the swing of things as I have been a busy Mom….but I can share this with you – THIS MOM’S JOY TANK is FILLED to the TOP!!! Our son James….was married over the weekend down on the Eastern Shore of Maryland where my Dad lives!
It was just fabulous and to me…the best part was having the peeps and their loved ones all together in one place!!! Seeing relatives…people that you have not seen in years…and one of the highlights for me, seeing James’ friends from High School and College…growing up to be ADULTS! It was just the best….
The older I get…the more I cherish that special feeling inside knowing that we are all once again – sharing the same roof over our heads! I know one thing I will hear from many is…..we want pictures!!! Ok – I promise that I will share pictures with you but for right now…I need to do some communicating as my IN BOX has a ton of….
ARE YOU DOING PRODUCT SHARES?
Well…the answer is YES – I am doing them and my intention is to blog about the offering tomorrow. I returned home Monday evening to find a Stampin’ Up! pre-order waiting for me and the thing that you all want to get your paws on….THE CATALOG!!!
We are not able to order everything/anything (just a limited amount) but I think that I have been doing these shares long enough to tell what makes ME happy….so therefore it will make YOU happy as well!
I have to say….my sweet Milo loves product share time as he knows that I will be in my work area and will have me to himself!
For newbies…..WHAT IS A PRODUCT SHARE?
Easy-peasy….a Product Share is when I take a group of offerings that are from the NEW Catalog and break them down into smaller quantities so you can…
HAVE A TASTE of the NEW KIDS on the BLOCK
without feeling like your Piggy Bank is going to EXPLODE!
I LOVE doing Product Shares and if I must say so for myself…I think that I do them very well! I am extremely fair with my pricing as remember, I also use to purchase product shares before but to me the biggest internal happy dance I have in offering these to you is….my turn around time is LICKITY SPLIT!!!
Now most you you know I ADORE animals and I think that you will giggle with my analogy of getting a puppy and offering a Stampin’ Up! Product Share…..ready for this one…..
I CLEAR THE DECKS!!!
Are you thinking to yourself….WHAT IN THE WORD IS SHE TALKING ABOUT? Well, this is exactly what I do when I have a Product Share offering…I clear the decks so I can but my energy and time into doing the one thing that you all look for and appreciate…and that is…
GETTING THE SHARES OUT THE DOOR FAST!
I take great pride in turning around my Product Shares within a week of the offering date that the Catalog goes live. We are IN LUCK with this catalog as it goes LIVE on a Tuesday this year (June 4th) and that means….I will be able to order on the 4th and will get the “GOODS” before the weekend so I can turn it right around to YOU!!!!
My motto is…when you get a puppy and/or rescue an animal – you need to CLEAR THE DECKS as they need your front and centered attention and that is exactly what I do with my Product Shares.
Being on the East Coast…I always seem to have to order expedited to get my products in a timely fashion…but again, I GET IT as I too was super excited for HAPPY MAIL of a PRODUCT SHARE to arrive!
I am out the door this morning to be of “moral marital support” to my sweet John as he has an appointment at Hopkins today with a shoulder specialist….do me a favor….for not only his sake…but for mine as well….think about him as I am hoping and praying that the forbidden word of surgery is not going to be heard…
The work that we have is endless at our home and I really cannot imagine not having him “intact” as his weed-wacker would miss him! (ha – I am really bad)…seriously – he has been suffering with shoulder issues so I feel fortunate that he is seeing a specialist
That’s it for me….I know – LOTS of READING and if you have hang in there…here is a surprise…..leave me a comment with what you are looking most forward to in a new catalog….if you have ever participated in one of my shares….or heck – just say HI!!!
When I post the exact offerings….I am going to give away a set of the DSP Swatch Books that I make up….here is a picture of what I am talking about (from an OLD catalog) I call these – LIFESAVERS as they take all of the guess work out of pulling out a TON of PAPER seeing what works with a project! They are a LABOR of LOVE to make…but SOOOOO WORTH IT!
Fortunately I was able to pre-order (8) of the 11 NEW DSP offerings…and these DSP Swatch Books are the BIGGEST TIME CHALLENGE for me in Product Shares…so please know – that I will have a BUNCH OF THESE ready to go from the 8 that I have and once I get my paws on the rest…they will be made up fast!
Have a GREAT DAY and please feel free to leave a comment….who knows….YOU MIGHT WIN….and if there are a BUNCH of COMMENTS….maybe I will give away more than one!
I have missed you all…but please know – this stamper is beaming with happiness! See you later…alligator!
p.s. – YES…I will also be offering the NEW 5 IN COLORS for your SWATCH BOOK RINGS if you have purchased them in the past from me….I need to talk with the printer to get the exact price but please know that YES – they will be available!
