Muffy: Hey, Brody! Mom left her old catalog here on the floor where we can look at it. She spends so much time looking at her catalog, I wonder what's so cool about it.
Brody: Oh, Muffy! This time I know the answer. It has cats in it. That's why they call it a "catalog"!
Muffy: No it doesn't.
Brody: Does too! Just look!
Muffy: Oh. My. Goodness. It does have cats in it. And dog stamps, too! Here is one that looks like a black lab.
Brody: And this one on the page that I'm pointing at looks like a Scottie...or maybe a Vestie.
Muffy: I think you mean Westie!
Brody: No, I meant Vestie! I have an accent.
Muffy: No you don't. You are from Iowa...what kind of accent do you think you have?
Brody: German. My "auntsisters" came from Germany.
Muffy: That was like a hundred years ago...and it's "ancestors".
Brody: That's what I said..."auntsisters".
Muffy: Whatever. I am heading to the 'puter to see if Mom has any pictures of cards made with these sets. Hurry before she catches us. Ooops, here she is!
Me: Twins...what are you two up to? Are you being good?
Brody: Yep. We were just looking at the "catalog". Do you have any pictures of cards made with these doggies and kitties?
Me: Why yes I do. Let me pull them up for you!
Me: This is one of my favorites made with the Friends Fur-ever set (W 117008, C 120504). I even put a pearl on it.
Brody: I like it too, Mom. I LOVE fire hydrants. And I had a pearl on my butt once.
Me: And on this one I used the Not So Seriously set (W 123085, C 123087).
Muffy: I LOVE this one Mom. It reminds me of all of the BLUE ribbons I win. Of course, Brody wouldn't know anything about blue ribbons...
Me: MUFFY LIN, stop picking on your brother. Here is one I made a long time ago for Missy the Boxer. It used the D is for Dog set (W 115784).
Muffy and Brody: She's at the Rainbow Bridge now Momma, where she has all of the toyz and treats she could ever want.
Brody: Did you make one with the kitty stamp? I love kitties. Can we have a kitty, Momma?
Me: Here is one made with C is for Cat (W 115764).
Brody: What is going to happen to these stamp sets, Momma?
Muffy: Don't you ever read Mom's blog posts, Brody? They will only be available until May 31st. So if people do not have them, they need to hurry and place an order. Then it is new catalog time.
Brody: And what if people don't have a new catalog?
Muffy: They can always get one FREE from Mom! But they better hurry and email her if they want to get one before June 1st. She has several more boxes of them ready to give away.
Brody: Hey...do we get to tear up the boxes again?
Muffy: That's what we do best! We are, after all, BOXERS!
I hope you enjoyed today's retrospective! As always, if you have questions, never hesitate to email me. And if you do indeed need a catalog, and you don't already have a current Stampin' Up! demonstrator, just let me know. As Muffy said, I have more just waiting to be sent out. Until next time...
