Happy New Year!

I wanted to pop in here today and wish everyone a very Happy New Year!  We will be celebrating quietly here at home while the wind is blowing and the snow is falling and the temperature is dropping!  Now that Belmira has been moved from Florida to Massachusetts, there will be no sailing for us this winter.  Summer is coming though and while we thought we might take a year off, it doesn't look like that's going to happen.  Kids and grandkids are all hankering to spend some time aboard with us this summer, so .... we shall see!

I am taking pix of the cards from Saturday's very fun Rose Hill Grange Stamp Camp and will be posting them soon as well as some announcements for upcoming camps and cards.  Lots happening around here and I'll be sharing all of it with you!  Thanks for hanging in with me and see you next year!

Thanks for visiting!

Rose Hill Grange Stamp Camp Card

This Saturday, December 29, is the Rose Hill Stamp Camp - the final camp of the year!  Here is the card the gals will be making at my table:

They will have a choice of any of  5 colors for their card.  This camp is a celebration of the spring and summer to come, and a heads up to the end of the cold and dark winter!  This card makes us of some of the wonderful products available in January from Stampin' Up!

If you want any information about this camp, check out my post HERE,  You can also leave a comment or email me (link in the sidebar).

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday wishes to each of you!

I have been absent from this blog since April of this year and I am not even going to try to tell you everything that has happened.  I have continued to be very busy with stamp camps and classes as well as spending about 4 months living aboard Belmira in Florida and also in Massachusetts.  To say it has been a busy and eventful year is a complete understatement.

This month brings the 11th anniversary of this blog - something I didn't even contemplate when I began.  I have enjoyed it immensely and really do hope to get back to posting on a more regular basis.  I won't get overly ambitious and make any commitments like "daily", but do hope to post at least once a week.  We shall see.

The pix above came about after a gathering of my fellow demos for a holiday celebration (I got a white elephant!!) and I had a pile of gorgeous ribbon sitting on my desk that I found myself playing with constantly.  I love ribbon (and paper, and stamps and buttons, and ink, and paint ... you know the drill) and it just looked too nice in that pile and I had to take a picture of it. 

I hope to start sharing my camp creations with you starting with the fun Rose Hill Grange Stamp Camp on Saturday, the 29th.  We are having a beach party!  No more Christmas cards and only nice bright spring and summer colors.  We will all be sporting our Hawaiian style shirts and enjoying beach party decorations.  Here's the flyer:

If you have any questions about anything regarding this post or the camp, please feel free to comment or send me an email (link in the sidebar).  It's good to be back and I look forward to a wonderful 2019 with all of you!
