PLEASANT THOUGHTS......

Of YOU!! This weekend I had four dear friends come from Eastern Ohio, and we literally stamped the weekend AWAY! One of these friends was one of my first SU customers, a very long time ago.....almost 15 years ago! Her daughter had my very first workshop when I lived in NY, and she lived in Ohio, but gave her daughter an order on her workshop. Thus began a long and wonderful friendship, until this weekend, 14+ years later when I actually talked her into supporting her own habit, oops, I mean HOBBY, and she is signing on as hobby demonstrator!! YAY!!! It's never to late to keep on trying!!! Anyway, it's nice to have stamping friendships with no pressure, where you can just make up stuff as you go along and there are grateful hearts all the way around. I don't think I've ever met a nicer bunch of ladies then Gloria and her stamping buddies. This year it was Gloria, Joanne, Terry and Margo. My mom joined us to round out a nice group of six - so much FUN!! Other years the group was larger, but even though we missed the others, we still had a wonderful weekend of stamping, food, fellowship and just plain FUN!! Thanks ladies!!! I love you all!!! Until next time.....I'll be thinking of YOU!!!!~~~~~

Sounds like a wonderful time with Gloria and friends. And she's going to be a demo - very cool! She's a good "cyber friend" of mine:)
