I am working on putting my stamp room together and have decided to sell some of my stamp sets as I just have so many! These stamps are priced from $2 - $10 and would be great for someone just starting out in this very addicting hobby! Please let me know if you are interested in any of them. Many of them are brand new and never used. Please see the list of them on the right side of my blog towards the bottom. I will try to keep my listing updated as I sell and add more.

Earlier in the month I had the pleasure of meeting both Marianne Walker (all the way from Copic Marker in Oregon), and Cindy Lawrence. Marianne is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to Copics. If you had a question about Copics, she had the answer! Cindy helped with the training as she is going to be the new Copic trainer for New England (congratulations Cindy!) I took the Copic certification class to learn more about the product, along with blending, shading, air brushing, and to become Copic certified. Who would've thought you could do so much with a marker....but they really are amazing!
Cindy, Clara, and Marianne

Today is Father's Day. How strange it feels knowing I won't be able to visit dad today as I do every Father's Day. Dad passed away at the age of 88, just before the holidays, after several years of dialysis and PAD. I still have a difficult time believing he's gone, but I will always hold him close in my heart so he'll always be with me. Happy Father's Day, Dad!
When he reached the top and climbed out of the water onto the surface of the lily pad, he was so tired, and the sun was so warm, he decided he must take a nap. As he slept, his body changed and when he woke up, he had turned into a beautiful blue-tailed dragonfly with broad winds and a slender body designed for flying. So, fly he did! And as he soared he saw the beauty of a whole new world and a far superior way of life to what he had ever known existed.
Then he remembered his beetle friends and how they must have thought he was gone forever. He wanted to go back and tell them that he was now more alive than he had been before he left. His life had not ended, but had changed. But, his new body would not go down into the water. He could not get back to tell his friends the good news. Then he understood that their time would come, when they too would know what he now knew. So he raised his wings and flew off into his joyous new life!
