Candle art

I have had these bare candles for some time and they always looked so boring to me.  I went to a all day workshop and one of the projects we did was this technique.  Walaa!! No more boring candles. This medallion stamp is one of my favorites,  There are so many different things you can create with it. I used it previously by stamping on a tile. I just love it. 
I have been stamping with Stampin Up for about a year and a half now and I am amazed at the talented demonstrators I have met.  My love affair with Stampin Up! is still as strong as it was when I was introduced to it.  I can't get enough of it.  Right now I'm working on designing 5 cards for my Christmas in September workshop. I have all my stamps set picked out, paper packs bought, and the designs are floating around in my head just waiting for me to put ink to paper.  I'm really getting excited. 
The new Holiday mini catalog is getting ready to launch on September first, and it is fabulous,  44 pages of OMG. If anyone out there really does read this and wants one just send me an email at and I will pop one in the mail for you.
Time to go.  Happy Scrappin!!!!

Wow. I'm such a bad blogger.  It has been months since I have been here.  I think the biggest problem is that I live in a rural area and I'm stuck with a dial up connection at this time and updating this blog becomes more of a chore that an pleasure.  Unfortunately that is the sign of the times and I just need to get a grip on it.
Any way, back to reality. 
I had a wonder opportunity to go with 5 other Stampin Up demonstrators in my group to attend the Annual Convention in Salt Lake City, last month and it was such a great time.  We got tons of free stuff, and lots of information to bring home to share. Here are the 4 cards I made to swap and all of the really great cards I brought back.  Next year I'm gonna start earlier and make alot more cards to swap.  These swaps are a valuable part of my business, as they give me lots of examples and Ideas. 
My Internet Mystery hostess club ended in July and a new one begins this month.  I have changed it to a 6 month club instead of a year.  I still have 2 spots open if anyone out there is interested.  each month you place a 25.00 order and one member is the hostess and receives the hostess benefits.  It's a great opportunity to get free product with out the fuss.  Please email me a t for more details.
Well, my scrappin friends, I had better run. I really need to get some 'chores' done so I can start playing.
Happy Scrappin
