Good Morning!  We are up and ready to make stamps!

We had a crazy trip home yesterday. We were allow to break down a little early so we could make the ferry ride home from Ludington, MI to Manitowoc, WI. We barely made it; had a tire blow so had to stop and change it. Today Kevin will be replacing all the tires. groan!  I needed him to make stamps. Such is life!  Loved sleeping half the trip home instead of driving 😊

It’s a bib card week starting with happy birthday.

Hello Monday Morning! This weekend starts a 5 week run of shows. I hope we are ready for this. We start this weekend in Collinsville, IL. 

We will have a week of “calendar” cards. We cut up a calendar and use it as the layer swatch for the card.

Good Morning. I’m getting a little of a late start this morning. We worked in the shop till around 10 pm last night. We are trying to get all the orders and stamps made for the next convention. My nieces graduation party is this weekend and we have lots of company coming. We are really excited and want to be free to enjoy the weekend and the company. So hence the late hours.

It’s Friday!  Glad the weekend is here. We plan to not touch any stamps this weekend! 😝 I have a couple of internet orders I need to get out today and then I’m taking my niece out driving. Kevin spent yesterday opening the pool and today he needs to do some work on the toy hauler. I’m not sure we know what to do with a weekend off but we are going to enjoy every moment!
