GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! It was a busy weekend for us. We spent Friday night at the emergency vet with one of our cats who suffered an eye injury. I’ll spare you the photo and gory details, but after 6 hours at the ER, Cutie Pie seems to be on the road to recovery (she has a follow up visit with her vet tomorrow). On Saturday, I went to the Stamp Scrap Art Tour, the first craft convention that I’ve gone to since 2019. I didn’t really need anything, but that didn’t stop me from buying some new stamps and other supplies. So yesterday, I cleaned off my desk and got organized so that I can play with some of my new goodies.
While I was straightening up, I came across stamps that I had forgotten were in my stash. I was far enough along in my clean up that I felt justified in stopping for a few minutes to craft. Never know what might turn up when you clean the craft room!
As always, I’ve linked the supplies below with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

This was also a weekend of remembrance. Please remember not only the souls we lost on 9/11, but the national pride and unity we felt on 9/12.
