It's a good day when...

You know it's going to be a good day when it involves a selection of pretty waxed linen sewing thread.
You know it's going to be a good day when your friend from Alaska comes for her yearly visit. [photo not availble]

You know it's going to be a good day when your friend lets you use her Vagabond machine.
[This is one of my favorite pictures of Gaye, taken at Stampaway in Cincinnati last August when she had just purchased the Vagabond machine.]

It's definitely a good day when you all get to play and make books, then have a fabulous lunch and play some more.  And then have peanut butter ice cream.  Too bad I did not take more pictures of some of these things, but I was too busy having fun!

Gaye has been busy designing new books, and the three of us used different embossing folders to make our cover designs. 


I copied Gaye, and put some green stamp pad ink on one of the clock parts to make it show up better.  When I got home, I decided to add more ink to the rest of the front and to the back.  Just a light amount to bring out the design. 


We had lots of fun... it was just one of those fun play days that we all need more of!

It WAS a most FUN day. Being with my peeps is just the best. And Thanks about the picture. I take such a terrible pic. That one was pretty good.
