Stamp Camp

Our daughter is an avid rubber-stamper. She comes up with a multitude of creative and clever cards and gift items. These boxes she made for our Easter table, they're designed to hold three Ghirardelli wafers. She phoned a few weeks ago to see if I'd like to attend a stamping event with her this evening, a "Stamp Camp" she called it; I'll be leaving here in a few hours! Not that this Nana needs an excuse to drive to Mason's house at all, but some play time this afternoon with him and an evening out with his Mommy was an offer just too compelling to turn down! I did try and talk Gramps into accompanying me, but he's committed right now to our ongoing attic renovation, hopefully getting to the point where we can get the carpet installed before the estimate times out. He's got the ceiling in place and the recessed lighting in now, the drywall is going up on the vertical walls today. He and I will make a day trip to the Capital City together soon, very soon.I'll be back home tomorrow afternoon; after all, I have ongoing projects of my own to finish! The borders are becoming a reality on my batik block-of-the-month quilt, stay tuned for the dramatic reveal.
Life is Good!

Mrs G, I am loving that new room and it looks like it's getting there. What a great place you will have for relaxing with a movie, how fun.
One of my DILs just loves stamping and makes the prettiest cards and things, that is her passion. I gave her a few quilting lessons which she enjoyed and she made some small projects but when she discovered stamping it became her focus. I gave her the few stamp supplies that I had as I wasn't ever using them anyway. Isn't it great to have so many choices available to us, we can do so much, anything we want. Life IS good!

What cute little boxes! Clever! I want to get into card making, scrap booking, etc....finding the time is what is keeping me from it!

Looks like a great renovation going on!
