Kindred Stampers who love to share

Hello Friends and fellow Kindred Stampers,

Today I'm going to indulge in a little bit of writing to share my thoughts about the events of the day.

Today I drove three hours from Lower Lake to Fairfield with the objective of meeting up with my friends Maggie and Shari. The drive should have only taken two hours, but as I was coming from the rural land of Lake County, I unfortunately bumped into some yucky Bay Area traffic on Highway 80 and got lost what seems over and over again trying to find Maggie's house.

Eventually I made it to my destination, and right away I was in the midst of crafting bliss.  Maggie shared her great stamping room and had projects lined up for us to do.  But first I got fed some spicy food she had made for us and we talked in the kitchen for a good amount of time.  Yes, we were three like-minded Kindred Stampers with lots to share and we hadn't even started crafting yet!

It's an interesting thing. To drive three hours to spend several more hours doing heaven knows what. It didn't matter. We never stopped sharing, that's all I know.

It's hard to explain why we are so crazy to do this kind of thing. But it is a common love, I guess, to sit around on a holiday weekend and talk about many things, not just about stamping, and to enjoy the company knowing we have this funny thing in common which is yes, stamping...okay, yes, Stampin' Up! style stamping.

Here we are together.
Our one picture shot at Maggie's table sharing our creations and wanting others to see that we are having fun.  Yep, it was fun!

Next time I'll share more cards.

Hugs and blessings,
Angela

I found my key!

I announced at my monthly Card Class a few weeks ago that I lost my key to the Methodist Church. I was graciously given a key to the church facility to have classes, but then I lost the key.

Last week I found the key, which turns out I had all along, but when I tried it, it didn't work. This weekend I tried the key again, jiggling it a little, and it worked! I'm so happy.

I really want to start having classes at the church because there is more space for everyone to come and feel comfortable.

On another note, I'm going to challenge myself to blog everyday for the next 30 days. So get ready to see some pretty goofy blogs because I'm going to just share whatever is going on for me that day.

Of course, I'll share my card creations too and talk about my favorite Stampin' Up! products which is a very long list especially now that the new catalog is out!!!

I confess. I love SU products. I get excited when I see so much awesome stuff.  I want it all! 

Anyway, the count down has started because the new catalog will be revealed online on June 1.  If you are local and want a catalog sooner than that, contact me!  I'll hook you up.

So that's my share for today.  No cards. Just a key.  But it's a wonderful key that will unlock great times if you want to join me for some great stamping fun!

My next local card classes will be on Sunday, May 25th and Saturday June 7.  Mark your calendar now. I have so many great things I'm planning to share.  Stay tuned and I will let you know more very soon!

God bless and happy stamping,
Angela
