The Wacky Watercooler's Welcome 2014 Blog Hop

Wacky Watercooler New Catalog(ue) Blog Hop

Welcome everyone!  This is our fourth Blog Hop and the very first one for 2014.  We have many of the participants from our other Blog Hops as well as a couple of new ones.  As usual, they've pulled out all the stops and are ready to dazzle you with their wonderful creations.  If this is your first time visiting our Hop, you're in for a treat.  If you've enjoyed our previous Hops, you will love our new one.

Why do we call it the Watercooler?  There is always friendly chatter going on around an office watercooler and we enjoy socializing with each other on the internet (the modern-day version of an office situation).  Why Wacky?  We delight in our eccentricities and each have rather an off-the-wall sense of humour.  Wacky fits the bill and we're proud of it.

Not only is this a brand new year, but also Stampin' Up! has introduced a brand new catalog(ue): the Occasions mini which celebrates the everyday.  Coming up within a very few days as well is Stampin' Up!'s annual Sale-a-bration.  This year Sale-a-bration will take place from January 28th till March 31st.  There are so many wonderful free items you can earn just by buying the products you love.  You'll be amazed at the variety available.

What are we featuring in this Blog Hop?  Well, of course we'll be using products from the new Occasions mini.  If you haven't seen them yet, you'll love the way they're being used by our creative crew.  We'll also be featuring some of the wonderful items in the Sale-a-bration brochure as well as our Annual Catalog(ue).  Not to be left out, there will also be items that haven't made it into any catalog(ue) yet.  In other words a seemingly endless variety of products available through Stampin' Up! will be used.

If you're in search of a demonstrator to place an order, any one of the participants would be happy to be of service.  Or you can check out the demonstrator locator at www.stampinup.com to find one in your local area.

Here's the line-up of demonstrators participating in this Blog Hop.  You can see they come from all over Canada and the United States.  Each name is hot-linked to their blog, so you can begin by clicking any name from this list.  Since the blogs are linked, you can move forwards or backwards through the Blog Hop as you may wish.
