To the employers:
I'm sorry that roughly 21000 of your workers were on my blog instead of working on their real jobs. I'm sorry they used your bandwidth sharing my pictures with their stamping friends. I'm sorry they giggled uncontrollably and began saying things like winkos and unintelligible anti-spam words which only those of us in the know find amusing. I'm sorry that some of them screamed out "SHUT UUUUUUUUUUUP!" at regular intervals for three days. Please do not fire them. They need their jobs now more than ever, as there is roughly $3500 in stamps and accessories they NEED on January 19th.
To the husbands:
I'm sorry that the few clothes that are not dirty have not been folded or put away. I'm sorry you have eaten mustard and crackers for three days. Wait - no way did you find the mustard yourselves. What am I saying? I'm sorry you had to order pizza and feed the other living beings who were not surviving on Dove chocolate, wine, coffee or tic tacs in their stamp rooms. I'm sorry that you will really be needing to pick up some extra shifts to pay for all this stuff.
To the children:
I'm sorry you are dirty and your binky is under the couch. Your mommy is busy. It's really time you were potty trained anyway - all the other kids are going to laugh at you.
Life should resume for oh, exactly ten days. But after this, I bear no responsibility for their distractions.
I can say this for them - they are passionate and hilarious people. Their time has been well spent!!
A few more pics tonight. When I get home, I'll try to fill in some blanks for you. But these should really be pretty exciting peeks.

HOLY COW - CLEAR ROLODEX DIE YOU CAN SEE WHERE YOU'RE CUTTING OMG
Now I was so peeing in my pants over the curly label die that I didn't take a picture but it's the coolest one of all.
Look at the rolodex one and image a large open space in a die - it's a full card size. Then imagine the curly label shape in a small die - actual size of the label. The big open die that cuts the card is magnetic, so wherever you want the curly label shape cut on your card, you just move it around inside the big die, put your paper on, run it through, and the opening is wherever you want in a totally custom card!!!
I hope no one is sitting near us at the restaurant tonight because there is going to be some squealing!!
Either later tonight or tomorrow, I'm going to announce my plan for giving away the paper sampler and some other goodies, so stay tuned!! There will be opportunities for my downline, customers, and other demonstrators!! hee hee - this is fun!!!
Oh - they let us buy the left over Make & Take kits today (during which I almost got trampled to death, seriously) and everyone who bought one got to take home THE INK PADS AND MARKERS WE USED IN THE MAKE & TAKES!! So I have 6 slightly used ink pads to come home with and one is Pacific Point Blue! Yay!!!
What a great company Stampin' Up! is. I wish you could all be here and experience what a warm, classy and fun environment they create. I'll share more later - but they wow me.
Winkos to all of you!! Kydia loves you!!
