I hope you can join me TOMORROW for a really awesome YouTube Premiere! I will be creating 6 cards with the Painted Seasons stamp set and bundle. I will be on at a SPECIAL TIME through April. Catch me at 5pm central time. Why the change? You may recall, last week I shared that I was cast in a community theatre production of “Noises Off” and I will be in rehearsal at my normal Premiere time, so until the show is over, I will premiere at 5pm instead. Thank you for your understanding.

Join me as I share cards featuring the Painted Seasons stamp set and bundle from the 2nd release from Sale-a-Bration. I think you will love the cards I have created for you!

TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27th on YouTube (my channel name is “Connie Stewart”) at the time below:

  • 3pm pacific time
  • 4pm mountain time
  • 5pm central time
  • 6pm eastern time

If you would like to “chat” live with me during the Premiere, you will need to sign into your YouTube account (or set one up before the Premiere begins).

Can’t make it? Not to worry, I will post it here on Thursday, February 28th.

This past weekend was Ginny’s final performance in high school theatre. It was bittersweet for this Mom but I am ONE PROUD MOM! My girl just shined in the role of Belle!

My girls have been in the Moore High School drama department for the past 8 years and “Beauty & the Beast” has to be the best production I have ever seen there.

I thought I would share some photos. I think what impressed me the most was that they had very little budget to put on this show so the kids made their own costumes. I was SO impressed with what they created. They look so professional!

All the kids were super talented singers and one of the actor’s mom was a choreographer and she choreographed the entire show. It was SO professional. The audience was blown away every night.

They have a Senior bow after every performance and I wasn’t quite ready to see Ginny take that bow. It’s hard to believe she will be graduating in 3 months.

My best friend flew in to see the show and to spend some time with us. We had so much fun, drinking coffee, stamping, staying up way too late, and a little shopping as well. I’m sad to take her to the airport this afternoon but I know her family needs her back.

This will be a week I will not soon forget and I just had to share it with you. 

Did you enjoy today’s video tips? I hope you found some inspiration to take your envelopes from drab to FAB!

Thank you all SO MUCH for joining me today and I look forward to chatting with some of you tomorrow for the YouTube Premiere. I love being on live with you to chat and get to know you better. See you then!
