Calm Christmas with Deb Valder and Stampin’ Up!

Hidy Ho Stampers,

It's so much fun being a crafter.  But when you are crafting for holidays, you have to be ahead of the game.  So here on this August 13th afternoon with the temperature at 82 degrees, I'm here making CHRISTMAS CARDS!!!!  I'm NUTS!!!!!

Okay so are you wondering what these super cute things are?  Some of you may know but for those of you that don't know, these are PENS made from Duct Tape (hope the spelling is right on this one – it's not Duck Tape is it?)  Oh well….

Isn't this the cutest thing?  Last night I had one of my clubs.  My groups are just so amazing, so much fun and so good to me.  Betsey was the hostess and her daughter, Mary, was here from Seattle, Washington.  Their whole family is so crafty, they STAMP, they sew, the do everything and the grandchildren are following in their steps!  So Olivia and Katie (Mary is their mother and Betsey is their grandmother) made these for all the club members out of Duck Tape.  HOW SWEET WAS THAT!!!!  So a great big shout out to Olivia and Katie for doing this (everyone had a pen to fill out their order forms YIPPPEEEE)!  They are going back home on Friday :0(  We will miss you guys.  They were both super troopers at one of my stamp a stacks…they out-stamped some of the regular stampers!
