YaHOO.......I'm back!!!!!!

It's been over two years since my last post and I'm so excited to be back into crafting. 

Last Tuesday I spoke to a good friend of mine and decided to rejoin as a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator.  When I got home from work on Friday what a surprise.  Yes, you guest Stampin' Up! packages were waiting for me when I got home. On the commute home I kept wondering if I would make it home before the UPS driver or if the packages had been left outside in the rain. Yes, I said rain. There was a huge downpour and flash flood warnings in my area.  But I don't care about the rain, even though I went through a huge puddle in the road I thought for sure the water was going to enter from the floor of my car. Boy did I make a splash....I didn't realize the water was deep until too late.

As I was saying the rain didn't ruin my boxes were dry and they are now empty....I have all my goodies spread out on my desk. Where do I start first??? Gee....the possibilities are endless.

: ) Just had to share my excitement.
