a MILLION Stampers Anonymous stamps?

Did that get your attention?

FINALLY...I can spill the beans...
This has been "in the works" for a bit.

Picture this...
Ted, Michelle & my favorite cute Cutts kids (I HOPE!)...
load a SEMI with Stampers Anonymous stamps...
then...
drive from Cleveland to???????

For Keeps Sake in St. Louis!!

Ted & Michelle only have time for a TRUCK sale once or twice a year...
because they're REALLY busy @ conventions most weekends...

so if you're close to St. Louis...lucky YOU...
or far away, but NEED some rubber shopping...
or want an arty getaway...

SAVE THE DATE!
The CUTTS crew be there on
Saturday September 26 & Sunday the 27th with a million...

ok...maybe not a million...
but LOTS of Stampers Anonymous stamps.

I admit...
I have LOTS of rubber...
but just seeing this many SA stamps in one place makes my heart race!

Given the choice of a new car or 100 new stamps...
I'll take my rubber cling/wood mounted...thank you.
SERIOUSLY!!

And lucky me too...
They invited me to come...

to sign BOOKS...

and to teach a workshop...

YIPPEE!

Here's the workshop project ...
I showed a tiny peek last week...




I'll be doing this workshop first @ Scrapbook Friend'z in Bloomington, Illinois, on September 12th...

then the following weekend @ Prairie Art Stamps, in Springfield, Illinois...

and then the following weekend in St. Louis.

Each drive is just a little further away...
1 hour for Bloomington, 2 for Springfield & 4 for St. Louis.

I HATE to drive...but for friends & stamps...
NO PROBLEM!

I'm sentimental about the TRUCK sale too...
that's how I first met Ted & Michelle...
and that's how this whole art adventure started for me...

Just thinking about ALL that rubber makes me want to go and...

make art!

A million stamps!!! I want to take your class on Sept 12 but if I can't for some reason my daughter is going to St. Louis for college this year and I may have to make a road trip! That might be a fun thing to do.

It sounds heavenly apart from the fact that it is in the wrong continent ... I am just going to have to tell John we are moving to the US ... Wish me luck!

The colours on that piece are beautiful, mind you so is the compilation ... you are such a great inspiration Wendy ... Now be a real buddy and tell the truck driver not to stop until he reaches the UK *LOL*
