Miss me?  Just making a funny  – I’m not that much of an egomaniac to think you’ve been checking every day to see what’s new but I did get one email asking if I was still alive!   Thankfully, yes although Matt and I have had a roller coaster of a month.  After being back from the Stampin’ Up cruise only a week, I got the call that my Aunt Julie died in Michigan (my dad’s older sister) and we got back on a plane to take care of things.  Julie never married, no children and had worked for the State Department her whole life.  She lived overseas in exotic places until she retired to a house on Lake Michigan.  She despised the cold weather so I still got to see her in FL every year!   We spent the week reflecting, clearing out her home, donating things, a little service with neighbors and settling affairs .   She taught me how to play Scrabble and in the last years, I finally was able to win some games (much to her chagrin, having been in a Scrabble group where they played in 3 languages!)   She was fabulous, frustrating, generous, stubborn and a real lady all in one.   I’ll miss her.

So!  On to happier stamping notes…

I had a request to do a video on the new Presto Patterns Specialty paper in the Summer Mini Catalog for Stamping School. While I normally don’t post those videos here, I decided to do an extra video this week (so the members still got their usual 2 exclusive projects) and share this one with you.  It’s really neat paper to alter and in this video, I ‘colorize’ it 6 ways.

The Retiring Stamp List comes out June 1st!  If you haven’t ordered your favorite ink refills for your retiring color ink pads you have, better call or email me before the end of this month!
