4/4/21 Updates & Stampin' Up! News
Happy April, happy Easter, happy Spring!

The weather has been warming up here. And having the sun shine longer throughout the days definitely makes those of us in Minnesota excited. Everyone is wearing summer clothes even on days where there is a slight chill in the air. Lots of people are taking walks or getting out on their bikes. And grilled food is a common weekend smell.

A couple fun things are on the horizon for me: the Stampin' Up!® incentive trip to Maui in May (I'm bringing my husband AND my boys - we are all so excited!) and my $1,000,000 Sales milestone (total career sales) that will happen any day now! I earned (will earn) both of these because of you! And I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. ❤️

Have fun paper crafting! And remember to...
