Feeling gratitude and not expressing it                                 is like wrapping a present and not giving it.


Just stopping by to say thank you for visiting my blog, attending my buffet or just being connected in the stamping world.  Be a blessing, enjoy precious family and friends and share the love!

God bless your day,

CARD BUFFET MOVES TO MENOMONIE for next class on Tuesday December 5th – doors open at 3 PM.

NOV 12 - 1



We are so grateful to all of you who return each month to this nostalgic and wonderful place in which to make cards and visit.  We have so enjoyed our space at the Knapp, Stout & Company Coffee House.    Tracey and Stephanie have been gracious hostesses and baristas – always eager to give us whatever we need to make this buffet work.  Winter and early sunsets are here once again so we have a new plan.  Read on….

coming up

BUFFET CLASS SCHEDULE AND CHANGES:  the driving to and from Menomonie can be treacherous during winter months.  We learned a few lessons last year with people sliding home on icy roads and treacherous drives along Lake Tainter.  With that in mind and with so many attending the class from Menomonie, we have decided to move the buffet class for winter.  We will re-assess the situation in the spring.

Of course, the ambiance and warm atmosphere of the coffee house cannot be duplicated but, we think we have found a place that will meet our needs with little round tables and plenty of light and space to move around.  We will give it a go on DECEMBER 5TH (nope this is not a typo) to see how everyone likes working in the dining room at the Quality Inn off Exit 45.  The parking is adequate, there are no steps to climb and no back roads to navigate.

TIME CHANGE:  In addition to the space to work, I am moving up the time for doors opening @ 3 PM to give some of us more daylight hours for travel this time of year.  Of course, it is always “come when you can and leave when you must.”

TUESDAY BUFFETS SCHEDULED at the Quality Inn – To make it easier for everyone’s calendar after December 5th we will be meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of every month.  Be sure to let us know you’re coming the Friday before.  If you signed up at the previous class there is no need to sign up again.  Watch for a reminder in your emails.

Here are the new  dates scheduled :  

December 5th        January 9th      February 13th      March 13th     April 10th     

SNEAK PEEK:  I posted this card  earlier  for either a “birthday or thinking of you” that we will be making next time.  It’s in my all time favorite neutral colors mint macaron and tip top taupe.  There are several choices of DSP Blooms and Bliss so you can mix and match. THINKING OF YOU FLORAL

I just had to share these pictures from a  fun Saturday morning with a local 4H group.  So grateful for the opportunity to work with a great bunch of kids.  Their participation and the parental support made it a special day.
