10 Honest things about me.

Ten honest things about me....

Got this from Sanne, one of my online friends through Hero Arts. When you receive this "honest Scrap", you are to write 10 things about yourself! So here are 10 things about me.
1. I had 3 boys who are now 41, 39, and 37.
2. My 3 sons were born in different cities, Landstuhl, German, Pasadena, Texas, USA, and La Mesa, California, USA.
3. I read one book a week.
4. I have a guinea pig named Sundae.
5. I once made and sold ceramic vases wholesale to flower shops in my area.
6. I make jewelry from time to time.
7. I love to watch comedies, action, and science fiction movies.
8. I could lose myself crafting for hours.
9. I don't like to cook anymore
10, Last but not least, my granddaughter and I spent most of the day with online friend Nancy Demond... we went to The Stamp Art Shoppe, Michaels, Joanns, and Green Tangerines, plus had lunch at Mimi's Cafe.
I'm sending this to Nancy Demond, Deborah Nolan, and Paula Laird.

June $100 Shopping Spree June 2009

I had to share the wonderful stamps I was able to order as a result of winning the June $100 shopping spree at Hero Arts. My granddaughter, Angelina and I were able to choose 5 clear stamp sets and two wood block stamps, as well as a little treat just for Angelina of 3 aqua-flo pens (plastic clear pens which you fill up with water that each have a different brush tip at the end) for fine, medium, and large water color painting.

I just LOVE the heart winged butterfly. It is fast becoming my favorite. I love the effect of stamping on patterned papers.

I'm going to be busy today doing paperwork and not stamping... oh well.... Have a great day!

I won... yes, WON the Hero Arts (HA) Shopping Spree of $100.00 just because I joined the Hero Arts Club. It came as a total surprise. I hadn't yet checked the Hero Arts newsletter, but my friends on the HA flickr group had... and I wondered what in the world they were congratulating me on.... I had that feeling of holding back belief because the person they're referring to might not be you....

My nine year old granddaughter was as excited as I was when I read the newsletter which is on the Hero Arts site under Hero Arts Club; use the pull down Navigator to select newsletters.

We opened our Spring and 2009 catalogs and put post-it notes on the stamps we liked, the initial A for her and M for me... we had tons of post-it notes and most had both our initials. Here's what we ordered:

CL337 Birds and Branches
CL349 World Dolls
CL229 Asian Borders
CL228 Asian Elements
CL275 Asian Frames
F5158 Heart Winged Butterfly
S5154 Three Ferns
MW012 Aqua Flo Brush - my granddaughter gave up her pick of the mushrooms stamp for these. We, yep, we are so excited and Angelina can hardly wait to receive our wonderful treasure!
