This blog is dedicated to stamping, tips, musings, and whatever I want to post. I want my cards to make you smile. You may copy, post, pin, anything you want. To me this is a sharing hobby.

Isn't this a FABULOUS idea?

Sharan, on the GW board posted this idea this morning. I thought it might inspire others. Here is here post:

After encouraging a cancer patient to join my newly formed stamping group-I think there were seven of us. She totally fell in love with stamping and it gave her a passion to enjoy while she was dealing with a brain tumor. It kept her busy and happy right up until the end. Ever since then I have wanted to have a PLACE where people could come and enjoy paper arts, not a STORE, just a gathering workshop space. Well, nine months ago we learned a fellow that had a very eclectic building downtown, (which I always thought would be the perfect spot)--he shared with us that he was planning on moving out of state in july,09. So hubby and I jumped on it and agreed to buy the bldg. It happened last week, and things are falling together like it was meant to be............It has two workshop rooms, a huge huge backroom which I have dubed the warehouse, as that is where I will store supplies, etc. and a full basement, and of course a restroom, we women have to have that. If you dream it you can do it...............PaperKrafters Retreat (hubby came up with THAT name) is close to being a reality.

Don't Worry About Me

Readers have noticed that I am not getting a card up every day as has been my pattern.

The reason is we are doing lots of remodeling at home and I am busier than usual at work as they laid off my TA and my Ameri- Corp worker finished her stint last Friday. So where there were 3 of us doing the job, there is now only me! Stamping is taking a back seat to the rest of my life right now, but I do have cards ready to post, so don't go away.

Don't you love Google?

Quote for the Day

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck

Happy July 4!

Stamps by Papertrey except for the fireworks from an unknown source. Sentiment is SU.
