My sister in law and I made the trip to Cincinnati yesterday for Stampaway. The weather was perfect and the trip was easy. We had a great time visiting all the booths and seeing some new things. Just when you think there can't be anything else new, there is more! The highlight of the trip for me was meeting and talking to Heidi Crowl of https://www.simonsaysstamp.com/ . She is very sweet and warm and we had a nice conversation. Shari  Carroll http://shari-design.blogspot.com/ was doing a Make and Take but she was busy so I didn't say hello.  I did get some new stamps and dies and really covered the holidays, Easter, Valentines Day, Halloween and Christmas. Also got the new Tim Holtz Crazy Cats and Dog set. It is pretty overwhelming to see so many gorgeous card samples and all the stamps and dies in one place but I survived with a smile on my face! Now I'm ready for NBUS. Be kind to one another.

  8. It sounds like you had a great time. I'm sorry I didn't get to go, but my grandson's birthday party was that day. Do you have room in your craft room for more stuff? lol

  9. OMG that is quite a haul! And I love that you got something for every occasion!! Can hardly wait to see the masterpieces you come up with!! Have a fabulous week! We had some rain this morning...kind of glad, I don't have to feel guilty about being inside playing, when I know there is so much to do outside...the windows are calling for attention! Actually I should do it when it is cloudy, right? Gosh darn...
