Home again!

We arrived safely back in VA in the wee hours of Sunday morning. I've been recovering ever since. We had a great trip to TX. I have a few observations about TX (at least the area that we were in). It is a beautiful state. I didn't find it as flat as I expected (after all, I am used to living in the mountains!!). The most surprising thing to me was how NICE everyone was. The Houston area is huge, so I expected it to be impersonal like other large city areas that I have visited. But everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The traffic was outrageously busy all the time, however people are willing to let you in when you've ended up in the wrong lane. I cannot think of one incident of unkindness while we were there. So here is a big Texas-sized THANK YOU to all of you Texans!!! We really enjoyed your state. Come on over and visit the mountains of VA sometime---we'd love to have you!


I took some pics on the flight home. It is always so cool to fly above the clouds. Here's a shot out of my airplane window...




Of course, when I got home, I wanted to spend some quality time with my stamps. I had gotten an order while I was gone (my preorder of stamp sets coming in the Spring/Summer catalog---you are going to LOVE this catalog!!!). But I had to attend to more pressing matters like going to the grocery store first. I had a couple of ladies come over last night for some stamping though. We had a great time. Here are the beautiful frames that we created---as a group really.


Remember that I am offering a special on Stampin' Up!'s retiring stamp sets. Go here to see my special and contact me by December 29th with your order!! Now, I'm off to assemble some of my new rubber stamps so I can start playing with them. Watch for pictures coming to my blog soon....

Welcome Home!

How were frames 1 and 2 done? I really like those.

Are you still selling the Baroque set? (That stamping set you've featured so much recently and said it's one your favorites. In addition, it's very versitile. I really like it. I think the price is $30.00).
