I left my heart in San Fr ...BUFFALO!

We had a WONDERFUL...BUSY...
FUN weekend @ Buffalo Stamps & Stuff...

THANK YOU to all who attended the make & take & to ALL who took the workshops.
I enjoyed meeting each & every one of you!!
The workshops were all full with GREAT people.

And speaking of GREAT people...

THANK YOU to Sharon, Mark and Jess for being THE BEST hosts...
I felt like family...I shall return!
Hey Mark...I GOTTA see those FALLS!

THANK YOU to all who liked, bought &
special ordered studio 490 stamps.

again...from the bottom of my heart....
THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH!

A little about the store...
2000+++ sq. feet LOADED and I mean LOADED with stamps, papers, samples & way cool STUFF.

Lucky for me that I don't live closer...
I'd be BROKE for sure.

Ever hear of a store with valet parking??
WHAT?

SERIOUSLY...

VALET PARKING!!!!!!!

They treat their customers like family too...

Sharon uses lots of wonderful vintage items for her displays...
Lucky for her my suitcases didn't have a spare inch...
we have the same taste in vintage finds...
I REALLY liked her stuff!

The highlight of the weekend for me was the "build a better bird class".

I brought a bunch of "finds" that I had been saving for just the right class...and this was it!

Add some studio 490 stamped grungepaper...Maya Road and tim's idea-ology trinkets...and Ranger's distress inks...
FUN!

I HOPED that everyone would SEE what I SAW...
and imagine the possibilities...
Let me tell you...
THEY DID...

Here's the proof...

I didn't get perfect photos of every bird...some were blurry & not usable.
So...please send me more bird photos...I'd Love to share more here...

Now...grab a cup of coffee & take your time looking @ these creations.

Click on the photo to see the details...
you don't want to miss a thing...

Here we go...


prepare to be AMAZED!










































Was I right?? Can you see why I am impressed??
If you liked them...take a moment & leave a comment. I'm sure these gals would appreciate that!
THANKS AGAIN to everyone for an awesome weekend!!
I hope this inspires you to...
make art!

Wendy they are all very individual and all absolutely bloody stunning!! I soooo wish you could come to Australia to teach this class. We get nothing in Australia and it sucks big time. I have asked The Timster to come over as well. It seems as if none of you can make it * quietly sobbing in the corner* If I could afford it I would pay you both to come and give me private classes *insert evil laugh here*
