You Soar High Above the Rest Rob!


My nephew Rob finished another few years of college beyond his first degree at the Carroll College graduation ceremony yesterday. He is now a Doctor of Physical Therapy. Insert clapping here! Good thing because I just learned on Friday that my toes may need physical therapy. My toes?!? Yes, you read that right and that was my reaction too. Rob called it pre-hab. Oh the joys of the Merker toes!

This was Rob in line to get his diploma and sash conferred.


His shirt was watermelon wonder colored so he was on trend! There may have even been some peek-a-boo peach, dapper denium and smoky slate in his bow tie. His sash was a hue of sage shadow so mom Tricia (my sister) will treasure that sash forever!

Good Luck to all the graduates as they start their next phase on life’s journey!

Where in the World is the SU Catalog?

Today’s location is easy, MY HOUSE! A stack of brand new 2017-2018 annual catalogs arrived yesterday via the UPS truck. The delivery was early in the day so I had the finish my work before I could plunk down and enjoy paging through. The ideas showcasing our product line are super awesome!


Need a copy of the catalog? Visit me, host a party, place an order are all ways you can receive your own copy as a thank you for supporting my business.

Today’s look through will include making a shopping list. Designer Series Paper is always at the top of my list! Fabulous designs and color combinations make project creation easy when using our papers. What is at the top of your list? Leave a comment below with your pick.

Have a nice day and include some stamping in it!

Fly Away with Fun Fridays

I snail mailed these cards to members of my Super Awesome Stampers team earlier this week. So everyone should have received one by now so I can reveal the design and the fun postage stamps!

One of the perks of being on my team is receiving about a card a month in your snail mail box. A fun surprise that shows up to brighten your day! If this perk sounds like something you would enjoy, ask me how to become a part of my team.

Have a Super Awesome Weekend!


Your invitation to the Card Buffet!

Getting an invitation is a nice way to know that someone wants to spend time with you. Whether it is to go for a walk, an errand run or another Big Adventure (my Mom’s code word for just about anything that involves car travel), it is usually more fun when done with more than one.

Is today the day you accept my Super Awesome Card Buffet invitation? Before you discount your creativity abilities, consider that the supplies to create the cards in the photos below are prepared by me in neat kits. You just have to stamp and assemble. We also use some fun tools like the Big Shot and punches to create the focal points.

Sounds like something you want to try? Super Awesome! RSVP for one of these sessions: Saturday, May 13th, 9-11am and Thursday, May 18th, 9-11am, 1:30-3:30pm, 6-8pm. I can pack up and bring a mini buffet to you and your friends at a time that works for you. Just ask!

Please RSVP with design picks 2 days prior to your session so I can have enough kits ready and a station reserved for you.

Order as cake, tools, fish.
