Not only did we get a New Idea Book this month, but it's also MY BIRTHDAY...August 29th to be exact. And if your like me, $10 for playing a scavenger hunt game is great, but my wish list goes far beyond that...So to add to the celebration, I would like to offer you MORE BROOKS BUCKS! Happy birthday to me (and you!)!!!!  For every $10 (not including shipping and tax, or scavenger hunt brooks bucks) you order from the new Idea Book by August 29th, you get $1 Brooks Buck!

I've figured out how you can maximize and combine these two deals to get the most bang for your buck. Here's how:

$130 order
+ $10 scavenger hunt BB
+ $13 birthday BB
= $153 which will qualify you for $25 in hostess rewards...

That means for $130 order (not including shipping and tax), you can get

As always, you can share these deals with friends and see if combining orders can give you even more hostess rewards so you can share.  I will do whatever I can to make it the best deal for you!

AND IF THAT'S NOT ENOUGH (I sound like I'm selling kitchen knives on an infomercial)....for every 10 scavenger hunt participants, I will draw a name to win a goodie box worth OVER $100 in product ! So get your friends to play and let's see how many boxes I can send out.

One more's National Stamping Month! Get your double stamp set for only $5 (with qualifying purchase) valued at $36.  The deals just keep coming, don't they? I didn't even mention the $5 Stamp of the Month...well, you'll see that in the scavenger hunt....I will stop now. :0)
