Teaching at the Kannapolis Library in North Carolina

It was an honor and a pleasure to teach the talented ladies at the Kannapolis Library on a recent family visit to Charlotte, NC, in April 2010. What a fun time we all had. I taught two classes on card making and one on journal making. I can't decide which one was more fun!
We all had a wonderful afternoon.

Shopping with Design Team Buddy

Nothing like visiting family and being able to shop with one of your Design Team buddies from Stamp N Plus! How neat is that? Dawn Knight and I met in Charlotte, NC, where she lives. She dragged me around to 3 scrapbooking stores so I could buy things I didn't need....that's a true rubber stamping friend. I also got to meet her adorable son, Jack. What a wonderful day I had. Thanks, Dawn.
