Hi Stampers, Happy Monday friends ! I had mentioned not much stamping is going on lately due to the Hoka Hey tracker map and following my hubby all week . This Friday I am heading to the finish line in New York ( So excited! ) But I do have something adorable to share with you . I got this super cute teddy bear card from my friend Patty Chenail . Anyway while we were cruising with Stampin'Up! in the Mediterranean she had these gorgeous flip flops . OH my goodness they are so sparkly and anyone that know's Patty she is always wearing flip flops. Every time I seen her ( which was every day cause she is my most favoritest person ) I would comment on her sparkly flip flops . GUESS what she sent me my very own pair ~Woo Hoo!! Now my feet can sparkle like... Continue reading

Hi Stampers, Happy Sunday friends , Hubby is still riding across USA this morning . He reached the 1st checkpoint in Billings, Montana and had to get his oil changed and get a new back tire . In 96 hours since he left CA our friend Glenn has been tracking all the "Guy details " like mileage /hours / states etc... It's so awesome Glenn is doing this not only for him but for Rich to see when he gets home . Here is Glenn's latest detail sheet on Rich's journey as of yesterday at 9 am As for me.... I haven't been able to focus on much~ hardly any stamping either. I do have videos done for my July FSM club but that's seriously about all I've got done this past week . Watching the map is very addicting plus when he stops to get gas he usually gives... Continue reading

Hi Stampers, Today I have a quick tip video for you . I had shared this tip with my team last week and they all loved it so I thought I would share it with all of you as well . My Hubby made me this acrylic stand to hold my Clear mount and Photopolymer stamps on my desk when stamping. I suppose it's not going to be a HUGE tip if you are the kind of stamper that puts every image away in it's case after you stamp ... BUT for stampers like me that may use the same size blocks for many different images this may help you too . When changing the stamps from the blocks, I put the stamps on my desk and sometimes they end up on the floor or in the garbage and yes the worse thing ever I have even lost stamps when...

Hi Stampers, Happy Friday friends ! This past weekend we arrived home from our amazing trip to the Mediterranean with Stampin'Up! We 1st went on a 7 day cruise with Stampin'Up! and hundreds of other Stampin'Up! demonstrators the ports were so awesome . My most favorite was Rome and going inside the Vatican.

We stopped in Florence which was a excursion on our own. Beautiful as well . We also seen this unusual side road attraction both in Rome and in Florence .
