Beautiful Card for Our Daughter's Birthday

The Case of the Missing Stamps


Happy St. Patrick's Day!
​It's early Friday morning and very quiet even though the family's all here.  My husband is "under the weather", poor dear, but everyone else is doing fine and looking forward to spending a few days together.
Most of you know that we spend a lot of time here at our cabin in the Ozarks.  Moving many of my crafting (and, sewing) supplies back and forth between here and Texas is what takes up most of the space in our vehicle when we travel, as you can imagine.   Well, day before yesterday while setting up my studio, I realized the box with all of my Occasions Catalog stamp sets was not to be found. My husband assured me that he had unpacked all my bags and placed those in my studio,
Oh my goodness! 
I hoped they were 540 miles away back in Texas. So I called my sweet mom and dad and they went over to my house to search for the missing stamps which were nowhere to be found.  I was just a little frazzled.
I had planned to do a Facebook LIVE broadcast on Ink and Inspirations Stampers Group and Ink and Inspirations with Lisa Brown that night.  But, for the projects planned, I needed---you guessed it---the stamps that were in that box.
So, I had to think fast and design a project with the stamps that I DID have in my studio and  the card in the video below was created.  I recorded a shorter version for you but you can catch the original recording of the LIVE version HERE.
After that LIVE video, my husband asked if I had "found" the box. 
"No...{sigh}..., and it's not in Texas either."
"What did the box look like"?
I described the box and he said he had not unpacked anything like that. (Oh my...)
"Let's go look again...I'll check the boxes with my things".
As a stamper and paper crafter, you have to understand the relief!  Lots of fun (and, investment) tucked in that one little box. 
In the whole scheme of things, this was not a problem...I realize that.  And, it reinforces the fact that no matter what life throws at you, there's a way through it.  We just need believe and trust.
