Stamp Expo in Saint Paul

Yesterday was a stamp expo in Saint Paul! The lovely and talented Gina K. was there! I just LOVE meeting all the stamp celebrities, don't you?! She was super sweet! Gina signed my Amy Butler bag which I started having all my favorite stamping celebrities sign. Do any of you do this? Am I alone in my crazy admiration? Can you recognize any other signatures on the bag?

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend~ Hugs!~

I have Stamp Club this evening and I thought I would share two of the projects we will be doing. I LOVE this new SU! Valentine's set, Happy Heart Day. The box was created with a template from Nichole Heady. Are you getting in the Valentine's Day spirit?

Happy New Year!

Hi strangers! I hope you are all well! I miss blogging and am trying to scan in a card as I am typing this. Hugs and here's some inspiration:

Take Action

Planning your future is very important. You need to know where you are headed to get there. But planning without taking action equals zero results.

Put your plan into action on a daily basis. Do something everyday to move forward toward your goal.

Everyday that goes by without positive action equals one more day that it will take to realize your goal.

Life is to short to regret even one day. What will you do today to make your dreams come true?
