The People You Meet!!

It was Day 2 of the Canberra Craft Fair and I am having a ball! The highlight of the day for me was to meet a SCS friend Happylittlestamper, Michelle! We had spoken on the phone a while ago and both mentioned that we would be there...I frantically emailed Michelle last night to try and make a time to meet...but didn't hear from her before I left. Shortly after arriving this morning I heard my name being called and there was Michelle!! I loved meeting her - it is such a great feeling to meet another SCSer!! We have chatted online and on the phone...now we are going to get together, maybe even do a challenge together!! I am loving this!!

I couldn't resist meeting this adorable gal (the one on the left! LOL) Sophie - isn't she just the loveliest...The stall across from us is filled with the most divine bears, but none as adorable as Sophie. Every time I looked up she was looking at me...so I just had to go and give her a cuddle!! There is something about Bears that makes you feel happy - or is that just me?! I was so glad that my DD's weren't there or they would have wanted to take her home for sure!

The Canberra Craft and Quilt Show is held once a year and a big event. I am helping with the Stampin' Up Stall and just love to see peoples reactions when they ask me how I got started...I explain that I was invited to a SU Workshop and I thought 'How boring!!!" Then I add that I saw their catalogue and unbeknown to me...an all consuming addiction had started! LOL!

Well...it is now Day 3 and I was too tired to post this...but am doing it before I head off this morning...even before my morning coffee!! Thank you so much for stopping by and for all of the support and encouragement you are to me!! Have a great day - it is Saturday morning here and going to be a busy one!! God bless you!!

  1. Linda how totally cool that you got to meet Michelle! She's such a great stamper too!!! I'm glad I wasn't there or I'd have gone home with Sophie! My DD always loved bears and we had so many but I still love them and have several here for the kids to enjoy when they come! Enjoy your fair... I know it's lots of hours of work but fun too! Hugs!
