Home at Last!

Well, if you have been following our voyage on Facebook, you will know that we made it to Florida and are now (as of yesterday) both back home.  DH flew to MA from FL and I flew home to CO.  I have been home for about a week and am still not acclimated to being on dry land.  DH arrived home yesterday so all will be getting back to normal soon in the Pereira household!

The trip down the coast took a total of 29 days - closer to DH's estimate than mine I'm glad to say.  It was not always pleasant, but we consoled ourselves with the knowledge that this was the "work" part and the "fun" part will come in December when we head back to FL to begin our winter sailing adventures and head for the Keys and the Bahamas.  The plan has always been to sail in the winter in warmer climates and get away from the cold of Colorado winters.  We shall see how it works out!

I have to get my pictures off the camera, laptop and iPad and go through them, but I promise not to bore you with too many.  We did see some gorgeous sites and spent the night in some very interesting and beautiful places.  It definitely was not all fun and games though!

I have a couple of events coming up:

July 11, 2015 - Sassy Chic Stamp Camp:


July 18, 2015 - Stamp Camp North:

If you want any more information or want to be put on my mailing list for future events, just leave me a comment or send me an email (link in the sidebar).  These camps are always a great opportunity to get creative and share the fun with lots of other fun campers.  There's always the bonus of going home with some gorgeous creations that you made yourself!

I'll be back on schedule with the Monday Freebies soon as well.  Just gotta get myself back in the groove of being a landlubber again!

Thanks for visiting!

Checking In

Hello everyone!  Just wanted to check in and let you know what is happening.  Things got pretty crazy in April and May around our house, but hopefully it will all calm down in a month or so.  DH headed east to Massachusetts in early April to prepare the boat for our trip down the Atlantic coast to Florida.  All was going well so I headed out to join him early this month.  Preparations are nearly complete and we plan to head down the river this weekend hopefully arriving in Florida in 4 to 6 weeks.

We have managed to get our on board computer network up and running and whenever we have an internet connection available I will try to post our progress.  I am nervous, but excited about this upcoming journey.  I think that I will learn a great deal about sailing and probably learn a great deal about myself and the captain too!

We are going to try to post daily progress reports on our Facebook pages using our hot spot, but we won't get into tons of trip details or be posting lots of pictures until we have a regular connection and then will post to our blogs.  I have been trying to figure out how to add a button to this blog to make following me on Facebook easier, but alas - no luck.  I am including this link to MY FACEBOOK PAGE  so that you can click on it, go there and then just click on the "like" button and that should do it as well.  You can also find me on Facebook by searching my name or just searching for "mudmaven" and it will get you there.

Thanks for visiting!

Weekly Deals from Stampin' Up! and - It's that time of year again!

Each year as Stampin' Up! prepares to launch it's new catalog (coming soon!), a list of the products that will be retiring comes out.  This is a much anticipated event by both demonstrators and customers alike.  

The list is long, but the deals are great.  Just remember that everything EXCEPT stamp sets are only available as long as they last.  Once they are gone, they are gone!  Luckily, this year SU has made the stamps sets available until May 26!

It's also Tuesday and that means new deals of the week:
If you have any questions about either of these sales, please just leave me a comment or shoot me an email (link in the sidebar).
