Today was NOT a snow day-surprise, surprise! Our Nor'Easter fizzled out! Can you believe it?
My daughter was VERY disappointed, and very tired, as she stayed up late and we watched a movie together in anticipation of the "BIG STORM"! Ha!
If you tried to access my blog this afternoon, you may have noticed it looked a bit strange! I was updating the blog with some new features, and evidentally made an error somewhere in editing which took my posts and removed them from view and rearranged the items on my sidebar! It took me awhile to figure out where I went wrong...so I apologize if you had trouble finding things!
On the plus side, I added 8 new features to my blog that I hope will be helpful. Here is a recap of what I've added:
- a Language Translator! I have had visitors from around the globe so I thought it might be cool to give these language options to you: French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Korean, Japanese and Chinese! It's at the very top of the blog-give it a try!
- A Stampin' Up! Color Combination feature-if you have trouble deciding what colors to put together when you make a card or scrapbook page, try this helpful tool! It's fun!
- Countdown clock to Sale-A-Bration! This well-anticipated event offered by Stampin' Up! occurs annually! It's the event of the year! From February 1 thru March 17, for every $50 you spend on catalog products, you will be able to choose a FREE item from our Sale-A-Bration brochure! When you host a workshop of at least $300, as the hostess you will receive any one set in the SAB brochure-for FREE! If you sign up to be a demonstrator with me during this time, you will receive any set (value up to $47.95) from the Spring-Summer Collection-FREE! I'll be talking more about Sale-A-Bration in the upcoming weeks....
- 30 Boxes-is a way you can see a brief excerpt about my upcoming classes & events!
- Interesting Sites for Scrapbookers-I will be adding more sites, but for now, check out Page Maps! There are some terrific scrapbooking layouts you will love!
- Local weather-temps for the next few days around the Hardyston, Hamburg NJ area!
- Snow Reports-check out the ski conditions for local ski conditions in Sussex County NJ!
- Other Sites I recommend-I use Constant Contact as my e-mail broadcasting service (great for businesses that want to insure customers receive your mail without SPAM concerns!), TypePad for my blogging sites, and if you are a demonstrator looking for a Stamping Coach-I recommend John Sanpietro, whom I coached with for several years. I will be adding other service providers I recommend as I learn of them, or use their services.
There are also some great crafting sites, stamping sites (I am registered with them all) and so on...if you want to be notified when I make changes or additions or post to my blog, you can receive notification every day by "subscribing" to my blog! See the links on the left sidebar to subscribe! This way, I am not flooding your e-mail box with updates...you can view them at your leisure!
That's all for now...
