October is a busy month

Hi there Stamping Friends,

October is usually a very busy and festive time around here because we LOVE Halloween. This year we were booked solid with our neighborhood parade, Halloween parties at two different elementary schools, a preschooler birthday party and an adult birthday/Halloween party. We were busy, busy, busy and we loved it. The only drawback? Not enough stamping time, of course.

I did hold a Stamp-A-Stack on the 27th that was lots of fun. Some of my most fun stamping friends came over and spent a few hours chatting, stamping and catching up. I also had a new stamping friend join us and all in all it was a wonderful time. I do have to say that the icing on the cake was that my friend Karen showed up with a fantastic item to share. I was so excited that she brought this with her and so proud that she is one of my stamping friends. I'll attach a photo so you can love her project as much as I did. I'll also attach a photo of the girls during the Stamp-A-Stack.

I've finally done it....

...I've started a blog. As if I don't already have enough going on (tee hee hee). Seriously though, I'm starting a blog mostly for my Stampin' Up business. I say mostly because I'm pretty sure that before long you'll see a bit or two about my amazing family. I'm not going to start out making any promises about how often I post because that will make me post apologies about something or another. So here is your invitation to join me on my Stampin Up! journey.
