The Red Hat Stampers

I am completely exhausted but exhilarated after spending three days up north at Limberlost with my stamping buddies: Debbie, Bev, Margaret, Carin, Lynne, Yvonne and Beverly. It was our third annual Red Hat Stampers Weekend and we had a fantastic time laughing, stamping and eating.
We made cards, a purse, a gift pouch, an ATC box—and also stamped with Lumieres and created on canvas. I feel a little guilty that I didn’t go on the group hike yesterday afternoon. It seemed crazy to be indoors on such a beautiful day and in natural surroundings, but Carin and I were trying to figure out the ArtLenz System of stamping so we stayed behind. (And thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, I might add).
I couldn’t sleep last night, and about four in the morning I went outside to look at the stars. They were amazing—I swear I saw a galaxy—and I was tempted to wake everyone else up to take a look. Somehow experiences like that remind you there’s much more to life than the day-to-day grind.
