I'm here...I'm here! (with new stamps too!)

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all having a fabulous Monday. The day has just flown by. I feel like I've been really busy and I'm not really sure why as I look around my house and still see things that need to be put away, and straightened up. Oh, well it'll all get done I suppose.
So, what is going on in my world lately? Well, the biggest thing has been helping my mom set up her new house and get moved. She's had a lot of fun doing it; but it's definitely also been a lot of work and now I think she's just at the point where she wants it to be done. The house that she bought is brand new construction, which is good because it means she hasn't inherited anyone else's problems and it is really pretty both inside and out. Still, it's very strange to me and to my sisters (and especially for her, I'm sure) to have a house without my Dad. This is the first time EVER in my whole life it's just Mom's house and not Mom and Dad's.
Ok...let's move on to something else before I get weepy and can't finish! Today is the big day for Stampin Up! New catalog is online (I think!) Demonstrators get a complimentary issue. However, I have yet to receive mine...don't ask why, I don't know. I'm about to go nuts not having it. All my fellow stampers will sympathize with the "can't wait to see the new catalog" fever that I'm currently experiencing right now. I don't want to go to the SU website and see the new catalog because I want to see the REAL thing first. Therefore, you will see that I've taken the link off for the catalog here on my blog. I will repost it with the new one no later than Wednesday. (Even if mine hasn't come by then)
I did take advantage of the hostess set pre-order we could do and I bought this adorable little set, called "Serene Spring". It has another stamp and saying with it as well and I will be posting an example with that tomorrow. I am using this card as my Verve Sketch 11 for the Anni-Verve-Sary challenge that Verve Stamps has been having. The details about this card as well as pictures of my others are in my SCS gallery. Tomorrow is the last day to get all your sketches done and uploaded into the SCS gallery. Don't worry if you don't have any Verve stamps...I don't (yet...!)You can still participate. If you do and get them posted by tomorrow, you can be in the running for the grand prize which is all the new sets they are releasing this week (Wednesday to be exact...I think)So get out those stamps and get creative!
That's all for me today. Have a great afternoon and thanks for visiting with me!

I will finish my last one in the morning and get it posted
