Another SCS Meet-Up



So, I have had the honoor of meeting two folks that I "talk" to on SCS this month. I was FINALLY able to meet Vivian! Her parents live just south of me so she and her mom came up to meet me and walk around Old New Castle.

Old New Castle is the oldest city in Delaware. It's an adorable little town with very old, brick homes and quaint stores. It a very charming place. I love to stroll through the town, taking pictures - especially some of the unique and colorful doors!

We shopped at the White Swan Rubber Stamps, and then meandered down to the bead store.

By the time we were done shopping, Aida was telling us that "lunch" was about to turn into "dinner", so we headed down to Jessop's Tavern for a bite to eat.

We digested our food and chatted while we strolled through a very old grave yard just outside of a historical church. Several of the tombstones had lengthy inscriptions! I read one (which was more than a paragraph long) aloud and Vivian warned me that I was probably going to be haunted by the woman for reading it with a bit of a mocking tone.

I have felt an odd chill or two since.....

Anyway, I had so much fun finally meeting Vivian. She's one of the funnest people I know on SCS. After meeting her mom, I can see where she aquired some of her sense of humor, because her mom is a hoot as well.

A couple more shots. One of the three of us waiting for our meal, and one of her mom!

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do w
