Holiday Stamp-a-Stack #3!

The 3rd and final Holiday Stamp-A-Stack will be held on Saturday, December 3 from 12-4 PM. This time we are going to make a gift tag box and plenty of gift tags as well as 10 holiday cards! If you are anything like me, you have great intentions of making homemade gift tags, and then time just gets away from you and you end up throwing some stickers from the store on your presents so you don't get them mixed up. I will have a variety of stamps, inks, punches and scrap papers laying around to make tags so this is your chance!!! The cost is $25 per person and I will need your reservation by Tuesday November 29. I hope to see you there!

Over my head

Last night was stamp club. Usually one of my most favorite nights of the month, when I get to do two of my most favorite things: make stamp projects and visit with some of my most favorite people. Last night was NOT one of my most favorite nights, though. I am WORN OUT. The projects we did this month were just too much. WHY OH WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF AND MY GROUP??????? I ask the question, but I already know the answer: I want to make club projects 'worthy' of the wonderful women who make the commitment to my club. They DESERVE the best, my best. But sometimes I get a little off-course and, like last night, confuse COMPLICATED with BETTER. This couldn't have come at a better time though, because my new mantra for the holidays (which my husband is going to love!) is: COMPLICATED DOES NOT MEAN BETTER.
The card is actually copied from a lady who was nice enough to put it on her blog with directions, although I did make some very minor modifications. Of course in my hundreds of papers I lug around in my bag, I managed to take out the ones with her name and blog on them - I will share that info next time. For now just appreciate her hard work and ingeniuity!!!
