Lovely Ladies!

Tuesday I got to do something a bit out of my routine: meet up with some fantastic StampTV members and friends! :) We had a delicious lunch at Mimi's north of Austin (Round Rock) and chatted about all things stamping (most questions for us on the GKD team were bout Gina, no surprise there!) , sounds like a little bit of heaven, doesn't it?


Front row: Christine Monzingo, Virgina Wingo, Lagene Sands
Back Row: Janice Whiting, Carolyn King, ME! (with the wind blowing I was surprised I didn'tcome out looking like Cousin It, my hair felt like it was in my face the whole time we were snapping pics!!)

You may have already seen the above photo on Facebook already, but you may NOT have seen this one!

This was on the photographer's orders to "Now be silly!" Ah, the poor front row has a slight disadvantage to the back row! And I have to point out Carolyn, takes silly to next level with her tongue out, she is SO good at following directions!


I will always remember this get together, thanks to Lagene for organizing, she was visiting Texas this week! meeting up with other stampers and finally coming face to face with relationships I've been cultivating online over the years is something I hope to do more often. If you live in or anywhere near the Austin area (Janice drove in from WACO! (100 miles north!), I would love to try to meet up, so let me know! I have also wanted to to try to do some stamping workshops or shoebox swaps if i can just get myself together to plan it! Would love to have you join in!



BTW, what an unexpected surprise to meet Janice, I didn't know she was going to be there until i walked in the restaurant, hee hee! She was my guest designer a few months back!

What a grand time you all must have had! Wish I lived closer. SC is a bit too far to drive for a stamp class! lol. And can you tell me what a shoebox swap is? Is it a shoebox full of goodies, swapped for someone elses shoebox of goodies? Sounds like fun.

What a fun get together!! I'm envious of you getting together! We need to have some regional StampTV get togethers or maybe a national get together! Wouldn't that be fun???

I love this idea. How fun! If you had a shoebox swap than I guess I would have to come visit my brother who is close to you. You all look like you had fun.
