I just arrived home from Pin-It Canada.
Drop in and check out the samples I brought home.
It would be wonderful if we could have a similar event here.

Renewed contacts with some favorite suppliers/manufacturers.

I taught a *Shimmer Sheetz* / *Alcohol Ink* mosaic class at *Stamp Art*.
A packed to the rafters fabulous store in a heritage building.
I have never seen so many gorgeous card samples in one place.
Nancy shared some of her fabulous supplier contacts with me. Thanks a bunch.

As you know I love *ArtFoamie Stamps* and I was thrilled to spend 3 days with Emmie and Ian setting up the booth and demoing these amazing stamps. I actually had time to take Emmies’ journal cover class. WOW!

I learned so much about decorating fabric. Stamping with paint. Liner technique.
We have a large selection of *ArtFoamies* in stock now.

Also I brought a huge order of *Frogs Whiskers* rubber stamps home with me.

Classic, traditional images manufactured in Canada.
Over 200 stamps on the table now. Shop early for best selection.

Yikes 3 more huge orders arrived while I was away!
