I've Got a New Friend!

I recently met someone who was interested in purchasing some items from Stampin' Up! She contacted me via e-mail to see when my next event was so that she could come by to sample the goods. It just so happened that I was hosting an event shortly after our initial contact so I invited her to come by and play. Boy, I am *SO* glad I did and that she actually was able to attend! Not only has she become a great customer but we have become fast friends and neighbors (she just moved in down the street!). It is reassuring to know there are still young, fun, creative people out there who love the art of paper crafting and know of the joy of making and receiving handmade items even in this age of ever-growing technology.

I wanted to ensure my new customer knew that I was thankful for her coming to the workshop but more importantly how excited I was to have a new friend and neighbor. I wanted to send her something from the heart so I made this card for her using the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set:

I am so thankful that my time and involvement with Stampin' Up! has been such an enjoyable experience. Not only is crafting a great way to de-stress but I'm amazed at how by continuing to engage in my hobby and share my creativity that I am able to find so many like-minded people who quickly become good friends.

Thanks, Juliet, for e-mailing me and coming to my workshop/play date. I look forward to many years of crafting and friendship!
