That's an old saying my father used to say whenever someone didn't follow through on a promise and he had to hire someone else to do the work .... I used it with my kids too, but usually to say that they were too late with their chores so I did the work myself and kept their allowance (what a meanie I was!)
Today I use this old phrase with you to acknowledge that I dropped the ball yesterday - I DIDN'T send out the first of 12 Holiday Helper emails as promised, and I DIDN'T let you all know about Stampin' Up!'s pre-holiday ONLINE EXTRAVAGANZA SALE which started yesterday - that was extra-bad of me because one of the items on sale was available only for the first 24 hours - phooey! I wonder how I can make that up to you? Keep reading...
I was totally out of commission due to a whopper of a migraine that conveniently started at the end of the Baby & Bump show on Sunday and finally faded away late last night. I remember all too much of Sunday night - being awake and in pain for most of it, but I really can't remember much about yesterday - I slept, medicated, drank water - then repeated the cycle all day long.
Today, other than some residual stiffness in my shoulders and neck, I'm back on my feet and working once again. You can expect the first TWO HOLIDAY HELPERS to be in your inbox by end of day today, and the rest will follow - one each morning until they're done.
As for the ONLINE EXTRAVAGANZA SALE - there are some pretty amazing specials, running from 20% to 60% savings on selected items, so it's definitely worth checking out!
This event continues for 10 days - over the American Thanksgiving & Black Monday Sales - so we can enjoy some great savings up here in Canada too!

The ONLINE EXTRAVAGANZA prices are available whether you place an order with me through a workshop, over the phone or email, or online through my website (use the link above to make sure you're at MY store and get the PREFERRED pricing)
NOTE: Digital items MUST be ordered online through my store as they are delivered to you online immediately after your purchase. This includes the MY DIGITAL STUDIO EXPRESS software with the FREE bundle offer.
Now remember that very special offer that was only on the table for the first 24 hours (like, yesterday)? Here's what we missed:
- 20% off SIMPLY SCORED (Item 122334, pg 7 of Holiday Mini) - reg. price: $38.95
- 20% off SWEET PRESSED COOKIE STAMPS (Item 125152) - reg. price: $20.95
Those are two of our most popular new items right now - and I feel badly that I didn't let you know about the 24 hour sale yesterday, so here's what I'm going to do: Anyone who places an order of $50 or more in the next 9 days (during the Online Extravaganza) can also purchase either of yesterday's items at 20% off and I WILL PAY the difference. If your order is $100 or more, you can purchase BOTH of yesterday's items and I will pay the 20% difference.
Enjoy your holiday shopping, and if you are a newsletter subscriber, watch out for your first two Holiday Helpers to arrive in your inbox later today!
