Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. Today my theme is Sending Love Your Way. Valentine’s Day has come and gone, and Family Day was two days ago here in Canada. On my desk are the cutest “Sending Love Your Way” boxes that my mom made for the grandkids. Oops! That’s right, I was supposed to hand them out on Monday but I had hurt my back on Friday night and was not thinking straight. It’s a good thing that we can send love any day of the year!
Making It Easy
My dear mom is 88 and quite truthfully although she is a very talented and crafty person, she has not done much papercrafting over the years. She is an expert seamstress, knitter, crocheter and gardener. She can also draw much better than I can but she only ever sketches on old envelopes or note pads with advertising on them. That is why I love bringing a Paper Pumpkin with me when I visit her. The last time I was there she had made these little boxes.
The reason I am sharing them with you today is two fold. One, I am still in a fair bit of pain so I really need to take it easy and not go crazy hauling out stamp sets and making a new card. I did start that process because I am itching to ink up the Friends are Like Seashells bundle. Two, I am super excited about the Paper Pumpkin possibilities. Paper Pumpkin is instant gratification in your mailbox and a great way for you to share what you love.
The truth is that a lot of people are looking for a meaningful hobby. Especially during Covid, it has been so good to have a healthy distraction from the vicissitudes of life. Stamping brings double joy, to the stamper and to the recipient of the stamped projects. The March Paper Pumpkin also has a bonus in it because it is the anniversary edition which always has a bonus gift. This time it is four stencils and a full size sponge which I always cut into wedges. Did you know that you can get at least eight sponge wedges out of one sponge?

I still have three Parcels in the Post up for grabs. This is a wonderful assortment of products for only $32 shipped anywhere in Canada. Let me know if you want one!!
Virtual Coffee and a Card packets
It is now the third month of my virtual coffee and a card class. This month the theme is Flowering Cactus and the kit includes extra patterned paper as well as a ton of felt flowers. This kit is only $25 mailed anywhere in Canada. At some point I hope to have a subscription option available and things will look a little more streamlined. In the meantime, we soldier on. The videos are all on my YouTube channel which you can find here. I hope you subscribe and join me for my weekly videos there, every Tuesday at 10am EST.
Thanks for joining me today, I hope you have a super day. I am having an oma day today! So nice to have the lockdown lifted a bit to make this possible. Thankfully Rachel is home today so she can do the lifting for me and I can enjoy the snuggles. I am hoping very much to be able to get back to some serious stamping tomorrow and catch up a bit. I appreciate you very much!!
