Pin It


New stamps: Autumn Apparitions!

I just LOVE this new stamp set, Autumn Apparitions from the new Holiday Mini catalog that begins September 1. I can't believe it's almost September! This set has such a great old-fashioned feel, I couldn't resist it, even if it does have a short life, I know I'll hang on to it. I added the harlequin stamp from All in a Row for the faux stitching, a la Beate. The faux stitching reminded me of Frankenstein, with sort of a sewn-on body part look.

I also snapped this picture to show how exciting it is to receive your new stamps from the Holiday Mini...since they are ALL die-cut and ready to go immediately! They are so easy, look great, and die cut so well, it's awesome! (Sadly the little Merry & Bright still has not seen ink yet, arghhhh!)

School is going great, I love my class. They are so bright and enthusiastic. I was at school 12 hours Monday and Tuesday, then 10 hours Wednesday, and I totally forgot how exhausting that was...I can only come home and sit like a vegetable, with a little drool running down my chin! lol!

I've started a little "favorite quotes" book this year so I'll remember things my students say, and my favorite from yesterday was this question, "Why is your hair flat on one side and curly on the other?" I laughed so hard! It was asked in such sincerity. Ummmm, that would be because I slept on one side and it got smashed down!

Have a terrific Thursday!
