Wow! What a weekend! It was the perfect combination of busy and friends and family. I'm teaching at a big retreat in Boston in November, but I have to get everything ready to ship next week! So two of my Stamping Bee team came over to help stuff envelopes and make sure I had enough supplies ready. We had great fun, sipping on wine (in spill proof glasses, of course) and munching on some pears and Vermont Cheddar and a nicely aged blue cheese. We had so much fun, and I'm just about ready. I'm just waiting on for UPS to deliver 1 more box of paper.
Then, The Lad and His Lady came home from Charlotte for a quick weekend. Neither of them had to work Sunday. We went out for pizza on Saturday night, then spent all day at the NC State Fair yesterday. It was hot and crowded, but a lot of fun, too. I was proud of myself as I walked away with only had some Eastern Carolina chopped bbq and a few bites of funnel cake!
It's always so good to have them home, but sad when they have to leave. They were only here under 24 hours. Not long enough for me, but I know she had homework and he had to be up early to go to work. So, to keep the blues away, I went up to my studio. I wanted a simple, masculine card I could send the Lad. An avid photographer, I grabbed some Pick a Pattern paper and my Great Big Greeting stamp set, neither of which I've used in a while, and got to work. And since I was too tired to be too creative, I used a design in the catalog to CASE, too. All I have to do is find a stamp and it's ready to mail. I hope it brightens his day up as much as it having him home did for me.
And we have a winner!
