Lighten Black Friday

Santababy This year I've heard more talk about "Black Friday" and I've been wondering where that term came from. Of course, I know all about shopping after Thanksgiving, but I've honestly never heard that called "Black Friday." A google search sent me to which said the term originated in Philadelphia in reference to the heavy traffic on that day. Well, shoot, I know how we can make Black Friday not so black . . . online shopping!

Stampin' Up! is having a Holiday Extravaganza sale from November 26 through December 1. We're all tingling with excitement because Stampin' Up! isn't revealing the details even to us demonstrators. Here's what I know:

  • For a limited time we'll be able to get 20% to 50% percent discounts on select product bundles.
  • Details on the discounted product bundles will be announced when the sale begins November 26 so be sure to check or my web site, Stampin with LMac. 
  • Quantities of discounted bundles are limited, so you'll want to  place orders online early.

If you need to let Santa know what you'd like for Christmas, you can click here, Holiday Wish List, or on the Santa Baby picture on my sidebar. There's an automated form there that you can fill out to let me know what you'd like for Christmas and who your Santa Baby is. I'll work with your friends and family to make sure you have some fun Stampin' Up! toys in your stocking. I'll even throw in a little homemade gift card.

As always, I can also create a gift certificate with a home made card if you or your family would like to give the Stampin' Up! equivalent to a gift card. Just e-mail me a

Happy Thanksgiving – may you gobble till you wobble – and happy Black Friday.

  1. Oh.. i love your holiday wish list page- might have to work on that for my blog…
    I hope you’re feeling better soon!!

  2. Actually, Black Friday refers to a day when shops usually make money (so the accountants would use black ink to show that in the accounting registers of yester-year). Up to this point, they’d likely be operating in the red, losing money, with purchasing all of the items that they hope to sell for the Christmas season (hence shown in red in the accounting books). That’s what I know of the tradition, but you are right, I’ve heard the term “Black Friday” more this year than any year. So far, I haven’t heard that the sales were any more spectacular than any other year. It’s a day I always avoid, as I hate shopping in huge crowds. Enjoyed looking through your blog tonight!

  3. Very well written story. It will be helpful to anybody who utilizes it, as well as yours truly . Keep doing what you are doing looking forward to more posts.
