Great Day for Stampin ~ Lately Every Day Is...

Hi All,
Today was a fun day of stamping. Meeting up with some fellow enthusiasts at a shop, The Creative Quest in Glendale. Some of us made a cute doggie card, some shopped and some enjoyed a lovely lunch together.
I stopped at a few places on my way home and could not resist looking for paper related products, especially those that are on sale :)
I received some beautiful fairey paper dolls in the mail today that I purchased from I have not had paper dolls since I was a wee child of about six or seven.
I will probably use them as a guide for coloring some other stamp/card/paper projects and copy some into my computer files and then send them on to my "little friend" Shealyn. She is my son's fiance's daughter, six years old and a sweet girl.
Well, I just thought that I would take a break before my DH gets home from work.
My doggies, Sean and Bebe are right here beside me, as always.
Later...Happy Stampin!

Sending out Wishes Today

Over the weekend, I decided to grant 9 wishes from the Wish Rack Forum at You have to be a member to participate in this forum.
I am going to send them out today, after addressing them and affixing proper postage.
I enjoy giving and receiving things in the mail and email.
Since becoming an active and playful participant in the Stamping community, I have
made so many connections with lovely, kindhearted people and I am elated to be a vital part of it all.
Since JoAnn's is having a huge sale on papercrafting items, I will be heading out in that direction as a mission. I went to a store near the Metrocenter mall last Friday and found $1 clear stamps.
They were very low on inventory, and I bought the last 5 good ones that were left. I will also be on the lookout for more of these, as they are very easy to stamp with.
TTFN...Linda :)

Welcome ~ Hi

Hi Everyone,
Since this is my first post and I do not have the time to do more than say hello and welcome everyone who reads here, it will be very brief.
I am new to blogging and may not visit this as frequently as most do, as I enjoy being away from the computer as much as possible, but only when I have an insatiable urge to research something or answer my email buddys.
Linda aka Paprrrlady
