I "Heart" Blog Buddies!

Blogging and reading blogs has got to be one of the best past times ever! I've come across some amazing paper crafters, cardmakers, scrapbookers and saved more ideas than I can execute in my lifetime. By far though, I most enjoy the friendships I've found since beginning this blogging journey. These are people I may never meet IRL (in real life) but are as dear to me as my IRL friends. We support each other's crafting efforts and enable each other as well as provide a soft shoulder when needed.

My blog buddy, BarbW, of The Buzz emailed me a week or so ago to let me know that she had seen 6x6 pads of Basic Grey's Gypsy paper at her Big Lots (she's such a good enabler), as well as K & Co envelopes. You know I went as soon as I could to two different Big Lots and had no luck finding the paper-dragged my kiddos along for the ride (and got them some squirt guns). When I told Barb I couldn't find them here, I asked if she'd be willing to pick up a package for me and lo and behold...lookie what was came through my mailslot yesterday! Thank you SO very much, Barb!! You definitely made my day.
How I wish I had the energy to head out to my craft room last night, but alas, I was plum tuckered out from giving the girls' room a much needed overhaul.

My dad arrives tomorrow for a week long visit. I hope to pop in from time to time, but if I don't get to posting, I thought I'd give you a heads up. :o) The girls are quite excited (as am I)!

I wholeheartedly agree with you, Jeanne! And what a pleasure it is when we actually get to meet some of our online friends in person! ;)

I hope you have a wonderful visit with your dad this week and I'll be looking forward to seeing what you create with your new paper.
