Discounts and Blue Hair


I had the pleasure of turning 65 last week.  My daughter sent me messages throughout the day and one of them was “bring on the discounts and blue hair”.  Needless to say, I cracked up. I’m all for the discounts, but I’ll pass on the blue hair for now.


My close friend, Doreen, who is also part of my Stampin’ Up! team, spent my birthday weekend with us.  She is a creative one, that’s for sure.

She etched the wine glasses with our team logo and my Critters’n Ink logo, then made this awesome sampler, using the Tropical Chic stamps and dies.  The explosion box card was the piece de resistance, complete with a little birthday cake inside.  The DSP was from the Botanical Butterfly group which was available with Sale-a-bration, this year.

The staff at our quilt shop, The Stitch Witch, all arrived at the store on Tuesday for a surprise celebration lunch.  I was deeply touched that they would all come in on their day off to bring a birthday party to me.  Totally amazing, lovely women.  Debbi, who is off right now, was missing, but I know she was there in spirit. The cake (above) was also part of this party.

Paper crafting gives me balance in a very hectic life, as a wife, mother and quilt shop owner. Sharing my love of creating is easy, as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and as a quilter. It doesn't matter which medium you choose, I think creativity keeps you young.
