Make and Take Night!


It's time to sign up for my first ever Make & Take project night! The date has been changed due to a conflict (the conflict being me not getting this email out sooner!), so the new date is TUESDAY, FEB. 17, 2009 at 6:30 PM at my home.

There are four projects to choose from, and they are all pictured below. You will need to choose which project (or projects) you would like to do, and then either email or call me before Monday at Feb. 2nd. All prices include shipping and supplies, so it is a great deal for you. Payment is required to hold your reservation. You can either mail your payment to me or drop off a check.

I know it's short notice, but I want to get the order in to guarantee that the supplies will be here. All projects make great gifts for yourself or someone else, so be thinking who you could make a gift for.

Project 1 - A set of six tile coasters personalized with initials (only two coasters are shown in the picture). This is a great starter project -easy and affordable. You will also get ribbon to tie around your finished coasters so that they are ready to give as a gift, if you choose. You will need to let me know which initial you would like on the coasters. Cost: $10.00

Project 2 - "Lost Socks" board. This is a fun and useful project that looks great. The board is 15" x 8 1/2 " and comes with five clothes pins. This project requires some staining, so I'll supply disposable gloves. Cost: $16.00

Project 3 - "God grant me patience to deal with my blessings" tile. This is a great gift for any parent and comes with a great black iron easel! This is another great first-time project. Cost: $21.00

Project 4 - A lighted glass block with an initial (let me know what initial you would like). You can't really see the beautiful ribbon that is tied around this frosted block, but this glass block makes a great gift for yourself or someone else. This makes a great night light for a child's room or a classy gift. I have enough lights for the first 10 people who sign up, but after that, you'll have to order your lights with white wire online. I have the website where you can get the lights that I will give to you if you aren't one of the lucky first 10 people. You will also need to let me know which initial you would like for your glass block. This project is a quick project, so you could easily do another project that night. Cost: $25.00 ($20.00 without lights).
The bow is a little squished in this picture; sorry!

OPTIONAL PROJECT: There is also an optional project if you are interested. It is an "This Home Established in _ _ _ _" plaque with a black ribbon. You would need to let me know the year that you would like included. This project costs $25.00. If you just want the expression to place on something you already have (mine is on an old window), you can order the expression alone for a discounted price of $18.00 (includes the numbers and shipping).

Okay, let me know quickly if you are interested in participating. Since I've never done this type of event before, I may need to place a cap on the number of people attending to ensure that I have enough supplies and everyone is able to finish their projects that night. This event will be first come, first served.

You will also have the opportunity to look through the new catalog (or purchase for $4.00) while you are here. If you book an open house while you are here, you will receive your catalog for free, of course. The new "etched glass" vinyl is beautiful, and we have four new vinyl colors and some new accessories to put expressions on. You'll love it!

Thanks for making my little Uppercase Living venture so fun! YOU all are the BEST!

And the Winner Is......

I had an open house yesterday for people to stop by and purchase the new Spring/Summer Idea Catalog, and there was a special drawing for all of those who came by. The drawing was for a beautiful chocolate brown and soft copper expression that says, "There's nothing like being AT HOME for real comfort."

And the winner is..............Nicole! I will be calling Nicole in the morning to let her know of her prize if she hasn't already learned of it through this post. :-) She is also hosting an open house, so she'll be earning more free expressions and half-price catalog items for her beautiful home.

Congratulations, Nicole!

Come by on Sunday, January 25th!

Hello everyone!

This is just a reminder that you will want to come by my home on Sunday, January 25, from 4:00 to 5:00 PM to buy the new Spring/Summer Idea Catalog and book your open house. You can email me for directions if you'd like to attend and don't know where I live.

If you book an open house on Sunday while you are picking up your catalog, you will receive your catalog for free!

The idea catalogs are $4.00 each if you are not booking an open house. Of course, the catalog is available online if you would rather see what's new that way.

Hope to see you here!

Customer's MyDesign Expression

Hey, I wanted you to check this out:

This custom MyDesign expression was created by a gal that liked this saying in the catalog, but needed it to fit a specific place. So.......she went to my website and using the MyDesign function, she created her own expression in the size, font, and color that worked best for her space. It turned out great, didn't it?!

Now is the Time to Host an Open House!

Happy New Year!

The new Uppercase Living catalog is here, and the company is offering a special incentive for anyone who would like to host an open house in January or February. The hostess will be able to receive the benefits of the next highest reward category (essentially, hostesses are "bumped" up one reward tier), meaning each hostess will earn more free and half-price catalog items! This incentive is in addition to any double-up rewards that you may already have with me from purchases within the last six months. You can contact me to find out if you have double up rewards available.

There are also some other great incentives that are being offered, so I'm providing the links to pages that will spell out all the details for you. Just copy and paste one of the web addresses below into your browser bar:

Specially-Priced Keepsake Kit with Order:

Special Price for Demonstrator Plus Kit:

Give me a call today to schedule your open house! I have dates in Jan. and Feb. still available (more limited due to a new business venture I am undertaking), so don't wait.

It's Here!

Well, my friends, I have the new catalog in my hot, little hands right now! I had been waiting to get it to see the new products and colors, and the catalog didn't disappoint. I can't wait to share it with you all.

I will be hosting an open house later this month, at which time you can come by, do a lighted, glass block project (only if you pre-register), and buy a new catalog. I think I'll have a drawing for a free catalog and another one for a free expression.

Speaking of expressions, I happen to have two great expressions that are available at a discount if you'd like them. The first is a two part design in soft copper and chocolate brown that says, "There's nothing like being at home for real comfort." It's a beautiful, classy design with the AT HOME part in a larger design centered in the saying in soft copper.

The second expression that I have available is "The laughter of a child is the light of the home." It is in the berry red color and would be great in your home if you have children or grandchildren. If you are interested, I can give you the exact dimensions when you call.

I've got some great new projects that I'll be working on to display at the spring open houses that I do. If you want to book an open house, I am offering an extra $5.00 off of your hostess order on top of the free shipping, free product, and half-off catalog items that you will qualify for as a hostess. Please contact me quickly to book your open house. I have select dates available, and you might as well get in before they are booked.

Happy New Year to you all!
