Crop with Nancy and girls . . .

Well, yesterday, I finally got to meet Nancy, Emily (Nancy's youngest daughter), and Christina (Emily's friend)! Nancy and Jenny met years ago, via work . . . I can see why they became friends! Nancy has a great sense of humor, a kind heart, and that Minnesooota accent . . . too cute!

Here we all are (L-R: Cyndi, Jenny, Laurie, and Nancy), before we all got REALLY started . . . you can tell, because you can still see the table in the picture! :o)

Jenny had some projects, for the teenagers to do . . . stamping on tile + decoupaging some wooden boxes, etc. and the projects turned out really cute!

Jenny and Nancy worked on their address books, the workshop from last month. I got done with my stuff, so I asked if they wanted me to help with one of their divider sheets . . . heck, they had 13 to create! I took one of the Stampin' Up! stamps with a porcupine and a butterfly on it's nose . . . stamped the sentiment, "Thanks for sharing you with me". I made a little pocket and put a piece of cardstock in it. On the piece of paper, they are to write each other a note (about their weekend together) and then swap 'em, before Nancy leaves on Wednesday. I thought it would be neat, to look back on the address book, years from now, and remember the weekend, etc. Cute huh?!

Okay . . . now onto the food section of our day! Scott really out-did himself! Not only did he make us gals Taco Soup . . . but he made these cute 'lil Phillo cups, with a chicken, taco seasoning, and cheese mixture (for an appetizer). Jenny said that he comes up with these food concoctions on his own . . . great job Scott . . . they were delicious!

We all had a great time crafting @ Jenny & Scott's house and it was wonderful to finally meet Nancy!

Thank you for stopping by the craft room!


  1. I am glad that you ladies had a great time!! I think I need a "BIB" from the sounds of what Chef Scott made for you guys! Sorry I missed it!!!

    Sister, you always think of neat ideas for yourself and what you do for others. That is a neat idea and I hope Jenny and and Nancy remember to do it! It will be something that all of you can cheerish forever! Great idea!!!!

  2. I am so glad that you had a great time over at Jenny's house. What a fun thing to do!

    The soup that Scott made sounds very yummy!

  3. Wow! By the looks of things you had a really busy and fun weekend. The idea for the little note for the address book was great. You really do come up with some great ideas. I wish I was that creative. Maybe we ought to hire Scott to be a chef for us one nite during our play dates. LOL! Have a great week.

  4. What a great weekend you had. How fun to get together with friends and play with paper!!

    OKAY...question? When you stamp on tile, do you spray something over the stamp design so it can't be rubbed off the tile?
