I bought my first stamp that day. I wasn't very good at it, but they didn't kick me out of the group. The girls shared their stamps and knowledge with me at every turn in the road. It wasn't long before I jumped into stamping with all my heart. Playing in the ink, paint, rubber stamps, and messy techniques makes me happy. It's taken me places I never imagined.
No matter where my stamping passion takes me, it's mornings like today that get to the heart of what makes creating such an important part of my life. It's getting together with girlfriends and sharing our lives, our laughter, our stamps, and our ideas. It's inviting new friends to join us, missing old friends whose lives are too busy to stamp, and then hugging them when they find time to come back. It's taking a break from chores, kids, and responsibilities to spend time with the girls and play. It keeps us whole and sane so we can go back to chores, kids, and responsibilities with a smile knowing that we get playtime again with our girlfriends next month.
Thanks for stopping by today.
