Nature’s Beauty Halloween Style

Sara and I decided we would each post three projects during the last three months of the year using the Nature’s Beauty stamp set. This card is my first and uses only one image from the set, but I think it’s perfect for a spooky Halloween wreath, and the coordinating products make this card one I’d want to receive! Hope you like it!

Frenchie’s Milestone Celebration 

France Martin, also known as Frenchie, and her friend Holly flew to Utah for a few days to celebrate Frenchie’s career million-milestone. Full of energy, Frenchie spoke to all the employees in Riverton, expressing gratitude for all they do for demonstrators around the world. In addition to making a video with Sara and Sean and having dinner with leadership team members and their spouses, Frenchie spent the day with different employees throughout the business. She told us that was her favorite part of the trip, and she could have spent more time at the home office, sharing perspective with those she met. 

Frenchie and Holly also enjoyed a warm train ride on the Heber Creeper while viewing the changing colors in Provo Canyon. Spending time with Frenchie and Holly, a dynamic duo, was a treat! Congratulations, Frenchie!

Time Together

The last time we saw Liam and Abbie in person was the first part of June, so we went to Florida and spent a few days with Shanna, Mario, and the twins. Shanna was preparing for a Home Maker’s Market (she made well over 500 cookies and 7 cakes…wow!), so it was a stressful time for her, but we still enjoyed our time together—reading books, playing dolls, playing tag with balloon guns, and going to the beach with friends!

Incredible Shelby

Shelby’s birthday was a long time ago, but she’s worth a shout out year-round! She’s happy, positive, fun, thoughtful, and beautiful—an incredible young woman, if you ask me! Shelby’s gift packaging is great for year-round too!

The Last of Summer

With today being the last day in the 80s, I’ve spent as much time outdoors as possible this past week, knowing it’s the last of summer. Sadly, dresses and sandals are coming to an end. Sterling and I know our time in the mountains is coming to an end too, so we especially enjoyed this gorgeous ride. Photos never do the majesty of this place justice!

Shanna and Mario in Utah

We had a family council with our girls and their spouses this past weekend, so Shanna and Mario came in a few days early to see the rest of the family. It was fun to watch the nieces and nephews spend time with Aunt Shanna and Uncle Mario, which only happens a couple times a year. And our weekend together was educational, memorable, and a growing experience for all of us—so grateful for our family!

Goodbye for Two Years

This week before Zach entered the Missionary Training Center, we said goodbye for two years because Zach has been called to serve the people of Russia for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He wished for and prayed for this call, so he was delighted when he received it! We will miss Elder White and his fun personality, but we’re so proud of his decision and will be praying for him!

Pleased for Karen

Karen Titus recently achieved her million-milestone, and we couldn’t be more pleased for her! Although we believe this beautiful card sent to Karen is a celebration itself, we look forward to celebrating Karen in person when she and Tim visit Utah later this year. Congratulations, Karen!

New Babies

Each week, in our Stampin’ Up! leadership team meeting, it seems there’s news of someone who’s expecting a new baby. Well, when the little ones arrive, we’ll be sending one of these adorable cards, along with a gift card, to the proud parents. They almost make you want to have a baby, don’t they? Okay, maybe not!

Into the Pines

Out of the heat and up into the pines for a couple of days—a refreshing and relaxing way to spend time with my siblings and their families. There were fewer people this year at our family reunion at Panguitch Lake, but we all agreed it was enjoyable to visit and watch all the cousins play…and definitely worth the effort!

Sage Loves Blues

Since Sage loves all shades of blue, every year I make sure she receives gift packaging that highlights different blues. Sage also loves breakfast foods, so we went to breakfast with her for lunch, and guess what? She showed up wearing two shades of blue…shocker!

Welcome Home and Farewell

Everyone was excited to see Sidney arrive home Monday evening—a much anticipated time! And knowing it would be our last chance to see Seth, family and friends gathered together for Seth’s last supper before heading to the airport to greet Sidney. It was a happy evening welcoming one missionary home and saying farewell to another. We’re so proud of both Sidney and Seth!
