What an awesome weekend I've had. Not just because I got a 5 day break from mommyhood or because I got to play with 1300+ stampin' friends but, because I realize how much I love Stampin' Up! My calling to create with stamps, ink, paper & now fabric has brought into my life friendships that I value most highly and a love that only good girlfriends can have. Even if I've only met someone once or twice, I feel real love and joy when I "hug their neck*" and they hug me me back. More about this in a minute.
If you follow me on Pintrest you might have seen that I pinned this clever Iphone 4 cover a while back. When I saw it, I knew that I had to make one for my downline that were going to with me to Leadership. So I used our Twitterpated fabric and made a phone cover for them.
I found the clip thingy at Hobby Lobby and the crochet flowers are Stampin' Up!'s from a while back. The button is also from the Twitterpated suite. If you'd like instructions, visit my pintrest site (click on the link at the top of the blog post and click on her photo)> Her instructions are very clear and concise. I thought about re-writing her instructions but, why re-invent the wheel?
As I was talking about Stampin' Friends earlier, these are two friends that I've made over the years that always make me feel loved just by the "hug around my neck".
My friend, Lydia Fielder from Understand Blue. This girl can make me laugh out loud and spray soda out my nose when I'm alone in my house. I always wish I had one more day at convention, leadership or whatever to spend just with her. She always "hugs my neck" and screams when she sees me. Don't you wisth everyone screamed with delight when they saw you? It makes me feel special. I love her. You should read her blog. She's funny, funny and very creative!
My other friend, Michelle Zindorf. She is like Stampin' Up! Royalty. I met her on my Alaskan Cruise that we earned through Stampin' Up! We were fishing buddies. Ever since then she's always been so genuinely happy to see me and makes a point to say "hi" to me. Her creativity is fantastic and she's well known, in the stampin' world. I can't believe she remembers who I am because she's so "famous". I love her for that!
So much more to show you. I'll be posting a photo of our January club projects next. Come back tomorrow for more.
* "hug yer neck or hug around yer neck", that's a Southern phrase ;-)
