Got My Catty!!!

June 23rd, 2007

Can you believe it??  We were out all day until about 4:00 and when we got home there it was in the mailbox…my Demo’s Comp copy of the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  *shock*  *giddy*  I was beside myself!  I put on super comfy lounging clothes, told Curt I would need the couch and asked him to go to Carl’s Jr. to get me a huge Diet Coke.  Then I snuggled up with my catty and caressed each page being careful not to drool on it.

I started at the beginning, but once I hit the Holiday section I flipped to the back to study the Accessory section first.  Then back to the stamps page by page.  I think this is one of the most exciting catties ever! Perhaps that’s because so much retired, so there’s such a large percentage of new stuff.  But also because so much of it feels like “my style”.  I could hardly breathe!

Then some time on SCS chatting and answering some questions, followed by a second go through with post-it notes and pen and paper.  *deep sigh*

It seems like very few Demos have their copies yet, so I am considering myself especially fortunate.  A note to my customers:  I expect to get my boxes of catalogs for you sometime this coming week and will e-mail you as soon as they arrive.  If you feel you can’t wait (and I understand that) we might be able to work out a time for you to come by and look at mine…as long as it doesn’t leave my sight.  LOL!

Being someone who hates spoilers I am torn about posting any specific info, but perhaps tomorrow I will describe a few of my first impression favorites.  If so, I will definitely post a *spoiler alert* before I do.  If you have any specific questions you’d like me to answer feel free to post them in the comments section.  Hoping you all get your copies on Monday!  Make sure you have at least a couple of hours set aside.  You might want to take Sunday to get some meals prepped in the freezer or something so you families can fend for themselves when it arrives!

Boy – I hope I can sleep tonight!  Between that Diet Coke and all the excitement I am WIRED!

    I didn’t get my complimentary copy until after I got my pre-ordered copies last year. Thankfully, they should be here this week! Have a fun time with it! :0)

    I have two questions –

    1) Is there polka dot ribbon?

    2) How is the Christmas selection?

    I’m so jealous!

    What is your top 3 favorite new sets?
    What are you top 3 favorite accessory pieces?
    PS: Does the diet coke from Carl Jr. taste better than a regular can of diet pop or did you just want to get your husband out of the house while you looked through your catalog? 🙂 Just curious.

    Aren’t you the LUCKY ONE!!! And I loved the pic of your messy desk. I’m stalking the mailman.

    Well, back to stalking the mailman myself. At least they’re in Calif. Now if they could just get to Central CA I’d be really happy.
