Disappontment Changes to Excitement!!!!

On Saturday I was supposed to go up to West Springfield, MA to the Heirloom Productions Stamp Show.  It is an annual event which I have attended several times.  However, Saturday was a stormy day, and with my weak peepers, I cannot drive a highway in heavy rain.  That 'spittle' the cars send off blinds me.  So, on Saturday I sat with a pout that once again my eyes were keeping me from a stamping event.  (I really don't pout often, but this was a STAMPING EVENT.....IYKWIM!!!!!}

Well, now we move to Sunday......it was starting off bright and sunny and wasn't supposed to storm until late afternoon.  Luckily for me, the meteorologist was right for a change.......so I got my rolling bag ready and off I went to Springfield.....about an hour and half ride from here.  I knew I couldn't stay too long, but the enticement to get there was to meet THREE SCS stamping friends.  AND.....I accomplished that!!!!


This picture, kindly taken by Dave of Rubbernecker fame, shows (l to r) Julia Aston, me, and Anne Harmon.  Julia and Anne were working the Rubbernecker booth at the show.  I was so excited to meet them.  AND....ya know what?????  Just like always, SCS friends are just the best.  We chatted as if we have known each other our whole lives.


My next 'visit' was at the Sweet 'n Sassy booth to meet Korin Sutherland.  Her hubby Dave was the photographer on this one.  Korin is such a sweetie.  We visited just a bit as she had a very popular make-and-take-it table which was a favorite stamping spot.

After this, I did spend some time perusing the show.  Bought some basic supplies, and , of course, a stamp and embossing folder or two (or three), but really did try to control myself.  I have so many 'virgin' stamps still at home awaiting  use.

So that was my Sunday......pretty cool, eh????
