odds & ends...

It seems like FOREVER since I sat down to stamp! But, in the midst of all things crazy around here, I had to sit down and make something. A calming of the senses if you will. lol

This Penny Black stamp is one of my all time favorites. I pared the image with gorgeous {Note}worthy paper by MM and a vintage button.

Here is one of (well, two of) the reasons I haven't had a chance to stamp anything. Our granddaughters, Grace and Elise, were here for the weekend. We had such fun at the park!

Gracie is such a great big sister, giving Elise rides on the dinosaur! I tell ya, one forgets how much a 15 month old moves! Up and down stairs, living room... kitchen... living room... stairs... kitchen... repeat 1000 times!

Speaking of kitchens. I spent today prepping food for our girls retreat. 22 of us, from all over the country, will meet up at White's Wildwood Retreat Center tomorrow for 4 days of stamping and laughing and eating. It is just the BEST time! Pine organizes everything and I take care of the food. No frozen pizzas for this crowd!!!

So... I'll see you on Sunday night (ok, maybe Monday. I may need to go to bed when I get home!)
