#226 Winnie The Pooh....well actually Christopher Robin


Sara and I went to see Christopher Robin the other day. Winnie the Pooh has forever been my favorite character since I was a kid :) Even when we went to Disneyland, that was the one character I had to have a picture with :) 

What a sweet movie filled with wonderful one liner's by Winnie the Pooh. 

"Doing nothing often leads to the very best of something."

"When I’m going somewhere and I wait, somewhere often comes to me"

"I always get to where I’m going by walking away from where I’ve been."

"Sometimes the thing to do is nothing"

I just loved seeing this movie with my girl :) I wish you could have heard her giggling at all the little things Pooh said. 




Later in the week Sara had 2 birthday cards to make and case'd these two lovelies. She made a few changes of course. But 2 lucky guy friends in her life who happen to have their birthdays today, got a card that she made special for them. She definitely is her my girl ;)



I hope that you are having a most lovely week...and if you need a little "nothing" to do...then go see Christopher Robin and get your feel goods for the week. 

As for me tonight....I'm gonna watch the Seahawks first preseason football game ;) 
I LOVE FOOTBALL SEASON!!!!

???Common Questions???

Do I have to sell stuff? 
NOPE...you can just purchase at the discount for yourself. There is never any pressure from me, my team, or the team I'm on.

What's the minimum?
Each quarter (every 3 months) you need to purchase $300 before your discount to stay active = to $240 after your discount. Right now you have the rest of this quarter and all of next quarter, that takes you all the way to Dec 31, 2018 before you have to get your $300 minimum.

What happens if I don't reach the minimum? 
Nothing really...you go back to being my customer. You don't owe anything back to Stampin' Up! And you get to keep all your Starter Kit that you chose.

It's a WIN WIN...worst case scenario, you get $200 worth of stuff for $99 and FREE shipping...and if you never purchase another thing...you go back to being my customer.

I would love to have you as part of my team :) Any questions please contact me – email – nicern1@gmail.com

#221 Birthday Week Day #6 Giveaway

What a day I had :) 
Started out with sleeping in :) Who doesn't love to sleep in? To me sleeping in just means I don't have to wake up to an alarm :) 
I was able to play in my craft studio for a bit, and then off to brunch with my girls.

We went to a C'est la Vie a French Creperie
AMAZING!!!
Crepes and a flight of mimosa's
It's phenomenal 

We decided to spend the weekend with my mom at the beach so that is how we ended our evening. 
On the beach...a beautiful bald eagle even came and landed near us and hung out for like 30 min. I think it's because I was born in 1976 the bicentennial.lol Just sayin' 


Today's giveaway is 
The Party Panda Set, a memories and more pack and some super sharp snips :)


To enter this Giveaway just comment below and tell me the most adventurous thing you have done. 
I'm not a very adventurous person, for me the answer would have to just be a water slide that I went on in Vegas when I was 16 that was a capsule where the floor dropped out and you slid just about vertical for about 75 feet.
That adrenaline feeling is just not so fun for me.lol
Do Disneyland and California Adventure Parks count as adventurous?lol Those I can do.

Congratulations to....Cyndi Sossaman!
You won my favorite stamp set for my Birthday giveaway.

Hope you are all having a wonderful day
