We just finished a jam packed, fun-filled weekend at the Puyallup Rubber Stamp and Paper Expo. It was filled with creativity, laughter, sharing, and fun. It was a real pleasure seeing our stamping family again. Often it is a reunion for us to see our stamping friends.
As I was talking to our loyal stamper, Candi, shown in the the red below, she mentioned that she checks on our blog. So I thought I would surprise her by posting a blog and not taking months to do it. So this is for you Candi!:) Next to her is her stamping partner and mom, Carol. It is so fun to see families come together through this creative hobby. They are real sweeties.
If you would have come to this show, you would have been greeted by our booth host and customer greeter in the green apron. He was accompanied by a smaller companion, his little brother. The show was Sat and Sun. On Sat it was the younger one's birthday. A sweet lady overheard that it was his birthday and came back later that day with a jumbo muffin in a box. In the box she had written, "Happy Birthday". She knew how to make a little guy special. He was beaming. He was king for the day.
We also saw our special four amigos, Merrilee, Lynn, Pat and Nancy. They are stamping family to us. We love these dear ladies and look forward to seeing them again soon. We met them at a Portland show several years back and they became friends. It was fun chatting and stamping, stamping and chatting, and then chatting and stamping some more. The creative juices were flowing everywhere. I will post some card creations from the weekend.
This weekend was fun. What better way to spend it than with family and friends.
Next, we're off to Syracuse, NY. We've never been there. I love NY, so I'm sure Syracuse will have a charm of it's own.
Blessings to all,
