Jill-like everyone else I really enjoy your blog and the inspiration you provide. I have just recently retired after 30 years with a major communication company and have lots of time now to pursue my stamping hobby.

Kathy said...

Wow. Now THAT is cool candy.

I live in Salt Lake City, Utah right now, but I have been all over. I was born in Ohio and lived there until I went to college in Pittsburgh. That's where I met my husband. I moved to Los Angeles and lived there while he was in grad school at USC, then when he got a professor job at the U of Utah, we moved here! I think we're finally going to stay put for a couple years!

Besides crafting, I love entertaining and gardening. Oh, and I work as an assistant wedding floral designer...

Wow, that kind of sounds like a personal's add (minus the husband stuff), huh? ;)

Thanks Jill--what a great idea for blog candy. Congrats on all your hits. As a subcriber I am here almost every day. The most exciting thing about me at the moment is that I am about to become a first time grandma in Jan after many years of struggling for my dd and her dh. I can't wait to make a onesie card, or stamp in the nursery. Darlene

Jill I've been looking at your card classes for awhile now. This would be the perfect excuse to try one.
