More Convention Photos

   So I went back to the convention today, bought more stuff (!), and took a few more pictures from one of the booths that I dearly loved. The company is Paper Sweeties, and is located in Chapel Hill, but they don't have a store, just a website, papersweeties.com. They have wonderful stamp sets and matching die sets, and I got the set that has the snowman that is on the large star. I looked at the picture last night and decided that I had to go back and get him, lol. So here are the pictures, just be sure to click on the first one to enlarge it:

I just think this is fabulous stuff, and I really wish they had a store. I have already made something with a stamp that I bought today, and I will probably have several things made by tomorrow night, so expect another post in a day or so with my samples.

Fun, Fun, Fun at the Stamp Convention!

   What a day! I went to the stamp convention in Hampton that I have been looking forward to since June, and it was as wonderful as I expected it to be. It wasn't very big, thank goodness! There were three vendors there who had the most incredible dies, and one had coordinating stamps and dies, and I could have dropped five thousand dollars easily. Easily! Needless  to say, I didn't spend more than a fraction of that, but it's a good thing I've been saving up for this.
   The three vendors also had the most fabulous samples, how I wish I could stamp like that! Without further ado, here are the pictures that I took. I wish they were better quality, and some of them are dark because the flash didn't work, but I am just going to upload all of them here, if I can get it to do all of them at once. Here's hoping!

Whew! Yes, that's a lot of pictures! I think these are some of the prettiest samples I have ever seen, I wish I could have taken better pictures, one of these days I need to take a photography course. Tomorrow I will take pictures of what I bought and post them, I think I got some really good dies, and I love the stamps I bought. I am very thankful that God let me make it to this convention, with some money! Now I have to clean up the camper to so I won't feel so guilty, lol!
