Hi from Stamping Around in Farmington CT!

Hey everyone! Well - I'm here in Farmington, CT - this is the building most of us here at the Stamping Around Workshop are staying it. It's at the Centennial Inn and you can see the weather is just super! There's a pool just across from our building and I'm hoping to be able to hop in it after the workshop ends. DH came with me so we're making a little mini vacation out of the weekend.Here are Kim Schofield and Julie Masse, organizers of the event. Friday night was a PJ party - so we were all wearing PJ's.They are raffling off a stamp set - one of the many prizes we could win over the weekend.
I taught the first class Friday night - we made two bird houses - both free templates from Nichole Heady's blog. You can see everyone busily working on their projects.

And here are two of my fellow teachers for the weekend, Debbie Corbari (left) and Donna Cecere (center). These girls are just a riot to be with - we ate dinner together on Friday night at J. Timothy's Tavern (a super pub type restaurant) when we first arrived and talked stamping the whole time!Well - gotta go - the Saturday classes are about to start and Debbie is up first - I'll be back later with more pics!
thanks for stopping by!!
