This may not be your "thang" but I have to say that even if I didn't live in Southern Missouri, I would like it and be impressed! see video below- in the meantime:
I am waiting on my In Color exchange to arrive Tuesday so I can start creating with my new Holiday Catalog items that came last Friday! When my mom and step dad were in the hospital in early July, I placed my new catalog order and ordered "what I thought" were the Brand NEW In Colors- but when the box came I had put in the wrong number and got last years. Ugh, since I already Have those, it took me till last week to print a return form and send them back in exhcange for the right new Incolors and they will be here tomorrow. Very FAST turn around- thank you Stampin Up!
I have some awesome fall paper and stamps from the new Holiday Catalog that are calling my name, so today I am doing some organizing so when the ink pads come I can sit down and stamp! I have some ideas running around in my head! lol Let's hope I can get them on paper and have them look good! I think I need to plunge myself back into my stamping/scrapbooking and quilting and get some projects finished and more started! lol
These new In colors are TO DIE FOR! I love them, I thought by the photo above I would not be so sure, but when I have the paper in hand (and soon the ink pads lol) I am in love love love!

First, this is VERY important to read and understand. I’m doing my best to look out for all the Facebook Users who aren’t as tech savvy as their kids or friends. I’m trying to help explain what’s happening because if I don’t…nobody else will!
If you’re anything like your neighbor…you probably use Facebook on your phone WAY more than you use it on a computer. You’ve been sending messages from the Facebook app and it probably always asks you if you want to install the Facebook Messenger App.
It’s always been OPTIONAL but coming soon to your Facebook experience….it won’t be an option…it will be mandatory if you care to send messages from your phone.
No big deal one might think…but the part that the average Facebook User doesn’t realize is the permissions you must give to Facebook in order to use the Facebook Messenger App. Here is a short list of the most disturbing permissions it requires and a quick explanation of what it means to you and your privacy.
Change the state of network connectivity – This means that Facebook can change or alter your connection to the Internet or cell service. You’re basically giving Facebook the ability to turn features on your phone on and off for it’s own reasons without telling you.
Call phone numbers and send SMS messages – This means that if Facebook wants to…it can send text messages to your contacts on your behalf. Do you see the trouble in this? Who is Facebook to be able to access and send messages on your phone? You’re basically giving a stranger your phone and telling them to do what they want when they want!
Record audio, and take pictures and videos, at any time – Read that line again….RECORD audio…TAKE pictures….AT ANY TIME!! That means that the folks at Facebook can see through your lens on your phone whenever they want..they can listen to what you’re saying via your microphone if they choose to!!
Read your phone’s call log, including info about incoming and outgoing calls – Who have you been calling? How long did you talk to them? Now Facebook will know all of this because you’ve downloaded the new Facebook messenger app.
Read your contact data, including who you call and email and how often – Another clear violation of your privacy. Now Facebook will be able to read e-mails you’ve sent and take information from them to use for their own gain. Whether it’s for “personalized advertisements” or if it’s for “research purposes” ….whatever the reason..they’re accessing your private encounters.
Read personal profile information stored on your device – This means that if you have addresses, personal info, pictures or anything else that’s near and dear to your personal life…they can read it.
Get a list of accounts known by the phone, or other apps you use – Facebook will now have a tally of all the apps you use, how often you use them and what information you keep or exchange on those apps.
Hopefully, you take this as serious as I do…after reading more about it and studying the permissions I have now deleted the app from my phone and don’t intend to use it ever again. I still have my Facebook app but I just won’t use the messaging feature unless I’m at a computer. Even then, I might not use messaging anymore.
With these kinds of privacy invasions I think Facebook is pushing the limits to what people will let them get away with. I remember when the Internet first began it’s march toward socializing dominance when AOL would send us CD’s for free trials every week. On AOL, we made screen names that somewhat hid our identities and protected us against the unseen dangers online. Now, it seems that we’ve forgotten about that desire to protect our identity and we just lay down and let them invade our privacy.
There may be no turning back at this point because many people won’t read this or investigate the permissions of Facebook’s new mandatory app but at least I can say I tried to help us put up a fight. Pass this along to your friends and at least try to let them know what they’re getting into.
I personally have not accepted that app on my phone and if I am FORCED or not be able to use it- I will remove FB entirely from my phone period!
I wanted you all to know this- please share it with your family and friends. NO ONE has the right to the information on my phone especially the addresses, numbers and photos of my loved ones and friends!
Wednesday we found out my husband's best friends wife passed away of cancer, while tonight a dear friend from church is passing away. Our world is full of comings and goings- I am so blessed with a sure knowledge of the Plan of Salvation!

I placed my Holiday Catalog Pre order today for fall and Halloween items and a few extra things I needed. I am really getting excited to receive it!
But in the meantime, I am canning veggies, salsa and soup trying to get my mind off my grief. And on that note..... This was shared on Facebook and I knew I had to share all I can say is YOWZA! I will have to get tickets to one of his concerts and pray he sings this when I am there! lolol wowwie wow wow - nothing like a deep voice that can sing! woot!
Hope your day is awesome and life is treating you kindly
Stampin Up has a "catalog selector" on their demonstrator website. I have selected everyone who has purchased from me in the past to receive the new Holiday Catalog in the mail. If you have not received yours by August 25th, PLEASE let me know right away. You will be able to order from ithe Holiday Catalog soon, right now demonstrators are able to preorder our supplies from it giving us a chance to have some samples to show when the catalog goes live!
Just one of the perks I love about being a demonstrator!
PLEASE NOTE: I am no longer personally mailing catalogs becuase the post office is charging 8.00 each to mail regular catalogs and 3.00 each for the holiday ones. That is way beyond what you or I can pay! I have catalogs here at my home/studio, just stop by and pick one up for FREE but please make an appointment first.
My Best advice to obtain a new catalog is to add this number 136732 to your next online order on my website .
