Beautiful Day... in Albany, New York! Staying at Hotel Indigo this weekend. Very nice place if you need to stay in Albany. It's close to the airport, not that I'm flying anywhere THIS weekend. lol Rachael and I are here for the weekend with her BFF, Emily, and her mom, Mary Jo, because of a big dance competition and oh yeah, shopping!

Mary Jo and I already snuck out this morning to the Christmas Tree Shoppe. lol We are waiting for the girls to finish getting ready because we are off to Lake George for relaxing and for some more shopping. No dancing today on the schedule but a full day tomorrow for Emily. Ron says my Schnoodle (Jericho) misses me. :( I'm sure Duffy is happy because he is soooo attached to Ron.

Enjoy the weekend everyone.

Looking for some stampin'/scrappin' time or get-away time?!

Next Saturday, 10:00 a.m., come to MY house. Bring your projects, cardstock, stamps, etc!!!! I'll be stamping things I need to do!!! Join me!!!!

I am so Blessed...

... in many ways. :) One way is to be part of a wonderful group called, Latenightstampers. Many of you have noticed a link at the bottom of my e-mails or heard me talk about this wonderful woman, Sherrill Graff. Well, she is the mom of this group. I met Sherrill a couple of years ago in Palm Springs, California, during Leadership and participated again last year at Convention in some of her stamp camps. A lot of the things that you've seen me do or talk about are from this awesome group.

Again this year, I will see Sherrill and will be participating in some of the things that this wonderful group of fellow demonstrators do! Guess what!! I get to bring them all back and share them with all of you!! :) That's what it's all about. How cool is that?! Check out Sherrill's blog when you get a chance. You'll be glad you did!!

Day before Easter...

Here is Trig in his mom's arms, looking at me, Nonny. lol Oh my! He looks soooo much like his mom. How could I possibly post one grandchild's pic without the others?! lol
Here is Scout, the big sister of both Trig and Pace. She is like a little mommy to them. She is so grown up. She will talk to Pace with her hands on her hips and speak from her heart. She will play rough and tough with her daddy and brother, Pace, but oooohhhhh she loves to act like a little lady too. lol

Being two years old now, I thought Pace wouldn't get into the Easter egg hunt so much. I thought he'd just kind of watch Scout but he kept right up with her. Here he had just taken some stickers out of one of the eggs he found. It was a lot of fun. What a good grandma I was. I didn't fill them up with chocolate and lots of candy. I did stickers and animal crackers and gave them coloring books, crayons and little boxes with netting on so they can put bugs and critters in when they catch them. I put their mommy appreciates that! lol

Happy Easter...

Scout, Pace and Trig were over yesterday for a wonderful day to include an Easter egg hunt, a walk to the park and some great fun.

Today, is a great day to really think about the true meaning of Easter and the significance of the great sacrifice that was made for us!

Blessings to all of you on this beautiful Sunday Easter morning...

Club this week

Wednesday for Club, we did a card and we did an Easter basket. I forgot to get a picture of the card but it was a quilted card, similar to the one from an earlier post. The baskets were made using the Big Shot. Of course!!! It was using the scalloped envelope die and our new punch for on the handle. I made these baskets last night for coworkers and brought them in today. They loved them. The empty one is mine. lol Although one basket appears to be missing a tag, the basket is turned around in the picture.

They were fun and easy to make. I used 12x12 designer series paper that I had along with a piece of matching cardstock for the handle. The scalloped edging on the handle is from the new handle that we carry. The scalloped oval punch was used to punch around the greeting.

Nonny & Trig

Monday I watched Trig for a few hours. He wasn't feeling very well so he needed some one-on-one time and Nonny was at the ready. :) Erin took him to the doctor to find that he is teething, cutting his first and second teeth.

Yesterday, I came home from work after a few hours and called in sick today because of the horrible stomach bug. :( I'm feeling better now and will be back to work tomorrow. Hooray the weekend is around the corner and that means stamping. Keep an eye on my Events Calendar for upcoming stamp camps. You won't want to miss them.

Have a good night. Thanks for stopping by,
