Well, April is over and May is here! I’m sure there are many of you who are ready to get your life back, but this quarantine brought my daughter back home! I’m not going to complain one bit. Sarah is a “foodie” and, when she isn’t studying, she loves to bake. Here is a photo of her Cardamom Rolls. They were wonderful!! If you would like the recipe, just leave me a comment.
This time of year is always bittersweet to me – saying goodbye to both the Annual and Mini Catalogs! Although it’s always sad to see some favorites go, Stampin’ Up! knows how to soften the blow. When you join, you get to see the new catalog early, which gets you motivated to make room for all of the incredible new stuff! So, I am here to tell you that you are going to love it all!!

The Romans called the month Maius. The name changed over the years. It was first called May in the 1400s near the end of the Middle Ages.

May 2020: A Kit In Color by Paper Pumpkin
Paper Pumpkin is selling kits in record numbers and May subscriptions have sold out. What does this mean?
- Anyone who completed a new subscription or who was in active status before kits sold out will still receive a kit.
- Current subscribers can still log in and manage their accounts; however, they will NOT be able to add additional kits to their May subscription.
- Subscribers in canceled or suspended status will still be able to reactivate their subscription but will be activated for the JUNE subscription period; meaning they will not receive the May kit.
- New subscriptions (for June’s kit) will reopen on May 11, 2020. We appreciate your patience as we adjust to unprecedented numbers of new Paper Pumpkin subscribers.
