It's my birthday today!

Hi friends,

It's my birthday today. And because it's my birthday, I thought I would indulge in some self-revealing thoughts.

I have a tradition of writing in my journal on my birthday. It's like New Year's Day all over again. A place to start fresh.

In looking back at the last few years, I'm amazed at how much I enjoy my "new" hobby of stamping. I've always loved doing creative things.  For years I studied vocal music, enjoying  the discipline of developing my voice and striving for perfection. It was a great outlet for getting out of the mediocrity of the day.

Now my creative outlet is stamping. I'm really into it and love sharing it with others. I think there is a real place for hospitality and giving with this art, just as music provided a way to move and touch people.

So those are my thoughts. Just felt like sharing.

Here's something else I'm sharing. A couple more cards we made on Saturday.


I'm offering another opportunity to make them on Saturday for Coffee & Card.  We're meeting at Lower Lake Coffee at 10am. Wish you could come!

Blessings to you.

Hugs, Angela

So glad it's Saturday!

Today is my monthly card class. I'm really excited about getting together with a friendly group of ladies. It's so much more than about making cards for me. It's about giving and getting a group of ladies together for a special time together.

Here's are couple of the cards we will be making.

This card uses some of the new colors and paper. The design is inspired by stampingschool.com.

This card uses the new Work of Art stamp set. 
 
If you live in the area, I'd love you to join us for class. My basic card class meets the 1st Saturday of the month in Lower Lake, California.

Have a great day!
 
Hugs, Angela
