I had an opportunity yesterday that so many of you take for granted--I got to stamp with my mom! My parents live 1,100 miles away, so this delightful shared past-time is a total treat for us perhaps once a year. Today is Mom's birthday, so BONUS!
Kinda crazy that her daughter is an award-winning Stampin' Up demonstrator, yet Mom's mostly self-taught, but that's how it goes! We had a wonderful time and I was able to share a bunch of tips and tricks that will make it even more fun for her. Most especially Mom was thrilled to find out about our re-inkers! Wyoming is very dry and she had to work so hard to get a good image. I set her up with ink refills for all the colors she owns, so she's good to go.
Sorry about the mess in my stamp room... I wasn't going to post photos of it, but I decided that life is too short and these pictures my Dad took are too precious to me, not to share them here with you.
There is ONE BIG ADVANTAGE to showing you the TINY SPACE I work in: I hope it lets you see that lack of space is NO EXCUSE for not going for your dreams with a Stampin' Up business. If you have a table, you can become a top achiever and incentive trip earner like me. Don't feel like you have to have a dedicated craft room or a big meeting space. That's only a barrier in your brain! Don't let a "box" limit the size of your dreams. Ready to join? Click here.
You've probably heard me mention my tiny house before and wondered how my stamp area compared to your craft space. Now you know! : )
My mom worked on recreating a card from April's Class of the Month Club, and I made these watercolored floral thank you cards using the Helping Me Grow stamp set (retiring now!). It was so relaxing to color with the new watercolor pencils and then blend with the Aquapainters. I stamped a bunch for Mom to work on in the car as they begin the two-day drive home. Like any good stamper, she also brought her latest Paper Pumpkin kit to pass the time!
That was all the time we had, but what a lovely way to spend a couple hours. I'm so thankful they came this week. And I'm thankful for you, too--hope you enjoyed visiting Song of My Heart and seeing my stamp room "tour' today. If you walk away feeling encouraged or inspired, you will have made my day.
Leave me a comment and let me know how my space compares to yours! Do you have a clever space-saving tip for me? Share away!
