Posts Tagged ‘The Big Shot’

Workshops are still one of the most fun events that I  do.  Everyone seems to have a great time seeing old friends, making new friends and seeing what  Stampin' Up! product I am going to feature this month.  In August the featured items was the Animal Stories Stamp Set, Tall Tales Designer Series Paper and the Latte Designer Buttons.  And I don't want to forget my favorite toy of all The Big Shot.  In the first sample I used the new Final Press Textured Folder you can see the detail on the right hand flap of the card.  Don't have The Big Shot yet… OMG, join my Big Shot Club CLICK HERE  for more information!  You will never be sorry.

I wanted to share some stampin' friends with you.   Some of these wonderful women have been hosting and attending workshops since I first started 11 years ago.   Some of these women didn't know each other in the beginning, but by attending workshops & classes they have formed life long friendships beyond stamping.  Through cancer treatments, illnesses, hard times, illnesses of spouses and much more they are there for one another.  

My customers have also been the greatest support in the trials of life and also help celebrate the joys in our life…the greatest being our children moving back to MN and the arrival of our two incredible Granddaughters.

I was sooo…. excited when stampin' demo friend Sue Hyer emailed and said she was going to be in MN and wanted to drop by for a quick visit.  Sue lives in the state of VA and we meet on cruise several years ago.  Cruise friends are very special as you get to spend quality time together year after year.  She tried to visit last year in April when she was in MN visiting family, but can you believe we had a snow storm and she wasn't able to make it to my house.  I told her that I think August would be safe we haven't had any significant snow fall in August!  

It has been a hectic summer and with only a few hours before her arrival I thought I don't have a gift.  I knew what ever it was it would have to be quick and easy.  So I decided to make her a Top Note photo album to remember her trip to MN.
