My friends.......Laurie, Jen, Eva, and Barb......are coming today for our Stamping Away weekend! We plan for these a couple of times a year and they are always soo much fun! I can NOT wait! My house is clean (thanks to my sweet hubby who had Merry Maids over the other day as a surprise!), laundry done, stamp room in order (this is never this way! LOL)......I'm all ready for them to arrive! We have some fun things planned........shopping in KC later today and then dinner at BoLings with some blog friends of ours........Jinny and Barbara! Can't wait to meet you girls! On the other hand, my blog may be silent for a few days but I'm sure I'll have lots to post after our weekend!
Well, I wanted to finally share some pictures with you from my trip to Boston. I had the opportunity to meet some of the sweetest gals......Suzanne, Jessica, and Christina. They share my love for crafting and stamping! We all met through our blogs! We enjoyed a nice chat while waiting to eat at one of the best places, The Cheesecake Factory. I have to be honest, I was a bit nervous to meet these girls in my hotel lobby but I had a fabulous time!! I am so glad that it worked with our schedules to meet.....I was determined to find a time that worked! :)

Suzanne and I know each other because we are on a blog group together, Papertrey Paper Dolls. You need to check out our blog and play along with our challenges! They remain open for anyone to play along!
Now, I have to show you some goodies that these gals came prepared to give! Oh my....I wish that I'd had more time to make something but I totally ran out of time. But look at what Christina made each of us......crocheted flowers!!! Oh my these are so beautiful! I can't wait to use them.....or wait, maybe I can't use them! LOL Such a sweet handmade gift.....Thanks Christina!
Finally, Jessica pulls out of her purse..........these!! This little favor it box came with a sweet treat too.....An Andes Mint brownie! That sure didn't last long! :) Jessica, thanks so much for thinking of us with these sweet little boxes!! I love all the details you poured into these.....the twill, courduroy button and that fun new stamp stamp set!
Thank you so much for meeting up with me while I was in Boston!! You all are so sweet!
