It's Been A While!

Wow! It's been quite a while since I posted!  I've been away from blogging for a while but on the encouragement of my stamping friends I am ready to start back up again! 

I am still very much involved with the Meade Girls and a few new ladies have joined our group!  Unfortunately we have also had to say goodbye to a few members who have moved away.  We continue to get together for swaps, trips to Amish country, shopping, lunch, and of course to stamp!

We have recently initiated our second "Secret Sister" swap, where those that want to participate are assigned a name and we anonomously send cards and little gifts throughout a specific time period to our "secret sister".  Our current swap is running from Feb. 1st to May 1st.  The swap will end the first week in May where we will get together for lunch and reveal who we are with a handmade gift for our secret sister.  My Secret Sister has already been busy sending me cards and goodies!  I received this adorable card about a week ago:

Isn't she just the cutest? Then today several of us got together for lunch and when I came back to the table after filling my plate at the buffet, I found a mysterious package on my chair!  My Secret Sister had apparently snuck in to the restaurant and left me some goodies!  What a wonderful surprise!  There was an assortment of pretty valentine colored ribbon in red, burgundy, pinks and whites, along with a bag of my favorite candy, M&M's in valentine colors no less!  And to top it all off she had made me the cutest Valentine card you would ever want to see!  It is absolutely adorable and I just love it!  Here is a pic of my goodies along with the card:

Thank you so much Secret Sister, whoever you are!  I am feeling very spoiled already!!

I'll be back tomorrow with another post of all the beautiful birthday cards I received!


  1. Welcome back to the blogging world! I'm also having lots of fun with my SS'er. Always fun to get something other than bills in the mail!
