Thank You!

I think it's time to give something back... to show my appreciation for the warm and wonderful welcome you have all given me since I entered the blog world a few short months ago. So, I put together this little thank-you gift.





I've met so many wonderful women, from all across the country and Canada, through stamping and sharing via the internet. Aren't stampers just the most warm and caring people? I sure think so!

I'd love to know where YOU are from, so leave me a comment telling me what state/country you call home before 5pm (CT) on Tuesday. Be sure and leave your name! (isn't it amazing how many people have the name *anonymous*?)

Thanks for being so AWESOME!!!

HB

I am a tad further afield since I am from Canberra, Australia which is about 4 hours drive south west of Sydney. FYI Canberra is the capital of Australia NOT Sydney as many of you Amercians seem to think!
Love your site though I only found it last week, I have put you in my favourites to visit at least weekly (I am trying to cut down my blurfing time and stamp instead!)Michelle

Isn't it great that you can travel across the globe without leaving your home! My home is in a tiny place called Pootilla, Australia.
You couldn't even call it a town. A dozen or so houses scattered around, a tennis court, a deisel mechanic and a cemetery (weird combination hey!?) Thanks for your lovely blog.

Annelies said...

Thanks for your generousity! I'm from Belgium and I must say scrapbooking and stamping are not very popular here. There aren't many shops and the few ones I know are pretty expensive. I really dream of travelling to North America one day and coming back with my suitcase full of scrapbooking/stamping supplies!

I couldn't agree more, stampers are some of the kindest women know. Just the art of stamping is an act of kindness since in most cases we are making these to give away and hopefully let the recepient know that we care enough to spend time creating for them.
I am from Saginaw Michigan a.k.a the frozen tundra half the year.But the other half it is a beautiful place to live.
