A TAC Contest Winner! Wha-Hoo!

I am still having computer problems! I hope that a new battery will fix the trouble. I ordered it and it will be here in under two weeks. I hope that does the job! Until then I am still using my daughters computer...blah! It is so slow and has no software loaded on it. It makes sharing anything very difficult! HOWEVER...I did win a TAC contest. Since they take the pictures and load it online I thought it would be easy to share. These photos are property/copyright of The Angel Company 2009.

I made this fun and interactive card for my husbands Valentine this year. After I was done with it I decided that it was perfect for the Pocketfull of Love category of TACs monthly demonstrator contest! I quickly shipped my husbands Valentine right off to TAC. I am so glad I did cuz, among two other AMAZING entries, it won! When an Angel wins a TAC contest that Angel gets to choose $75 worth of FREE TAC stamps. The $75 is at our discount so that is really $109 in retail value! I just put in my order with my contest winnings! I am so excited to get new stamps from Serendipity. Being an Angel is just more FUN!! If you would like more information about becoming an Angel please email or call me. I would love to talk to you about all the other great advantages to getting your wings!

I better get back to my stamping nook and get busy cleaning, purging and organizing! I want to be done with all the clean up when my new stamps arrive. I have been doing too much cleaning and not enough crafting lately!

March Specials

We have some great promotions going on for March! I can't wait to get mine. I ordered the AWESOME Fresh Things for Spring Promotion and the March Fruit of the Spirit Vintage Stamp set. TAC really did a great job of putting out seasonal and adorable things for this month. If you need any of these specials please call me or email me and I will get the order in for you!

Stamp of the Month: March 2009, Spring Boxes. Think of all the great cards and projects you can make quickly with this basic stamp set! I love to use a dark chalk ink, brown would be great, on pattern paper with these kind of images. The image is then patterned (meaning no coloring required) and the surrounding negative space is the ink color you choose. Just trim with scissors, mat and attach to a card...voila! Hey, I think I might have sold myself on the set...maybe I need to add it to the order I have going in today! For some great sample ideas using this set check out TAC's Stamp of the Month page on the company website. This stamp set is just $9.75 ($12.95 retail value) with your purchase of $30 in merchandise.

The Flu, Limited Internet Access and Home Improvement

I know, I abandoned you all again. I am so sorry! Trust me when I say that you are never far from my mind! At the moment I have limited Internet access due to a computer problem. I am working on it and will be back to more regular blogging and email soon. Between the computer and the flu my husband gave me I have been out of touch.

I have also been in a little bit of a life change mode. My husband and I are expecting our third child and it's a boy! I am sure that some of you already know that...what you might not know is how life changing it has been for me! I have been consumed with cleaning and clearing clutter at home. I have to fit another child in our home which is less than 900 sq. feet! We are packed as it is and I am nesting in CRISIS MODE. I have been down and desperate. My attentions have been on my home and they need to be right now.

NOW THAT SAID...what does it all mean?? It means I am still here! You can call me at any time. E-mail will be slow for a little while, but I am checking it. I place about 2-4 orders to TAC per month. I can get you anything you need! I have Serendipity Magazines at home and in stock, let me know if you need one...they are $2.95 or free with a $30 order. I will not be doing classes for a little while, but that is just because you would not believe the state that my house is in! I will be back with classes as soon as I get a handle on this sty we call home. I am going to be attending and helping with a Ladies Craft Night at Mt. Prospect Bible Church. The first one is March 7th at 6:30 til whenever. I will have a free make and take card and lots of space for you to work on any crafty thing you want. Come out and join me! I have missed seeing you all! I hope we will craft together again really soon!
