Friends

With 2 successful posts under my belt I thought I would take the opportunity to say a few things about some people who have encouraged me in this phase of my crafting life.
In 2006 all our craft shows were coming to a close and my long time friend and craft show partner Debbie was moving into a new phase in her life also. Her husband David had been scrap booking for a long time and he suggested I might want to take that up. He opened up his craft room to a small group of us and the new journey began for me. He and his daughter-in-law Edna generously shared their knowledge, tools, and time with us. I soon discovered that my interest leans toward card making and rubber stamping. Edna talked David into becoming a CTMH rep and over the last few years we've known a couple of Stampin Up reps, so I have some really neat stamps and stuff. The trick now is to use all the neat products I have. Through David I also met a new friend Linda. She's a step up and step out kinda gal. In getting to know her she has reminded me and encouraged me to get back to doing that myself. I always have to keep reminding myself that as God closes one door he always opens another.

Newbie

I am brand new to blogging. I read on another gals blog recently she was the last person to get a blog, well if she ever sees this that is probably me also. I'm looking forward to learning how to post some of the cards I have been making and participating in some of the challenges I've been reading about.
