I'm so excited...I met a blogging celebrity!

Oh my goodness was Saturday a good day!  The store was trashed
(what's not to love about that?)...we were changing out the Halloween
window to Christmas...I was covered in blue ink (a mistake I won't make
again)...creating new displays for the Christmas window (they're SO
cute!)...when in walks this gal who looked vaguely familiar to me...


Meet Nancy Riley, the author of ISTAMP, a blog that I read religiously...oh my goodness!  This woman rocks
(we link to her blog on the right side of my page)  Nancy is SO
nice!  She and her husband were visiting Flagstaff because her
daughter was competing in a high school band competition at NAU. 
She's a Stampin' Up demonstrator & working mom (we both have 14 year
olds...hers is a boy) & wife who just does it all.  I LOVE the
cards she makes...just love them!  We got to chat for a bit & I
just really admire her.  Her blog is amazing!  We've had our
blogs for about the same amount of time (I've been stalking hers for a
while) but in that time she's had almost 400,000 visitors...yes,
400,000!  AMAZING!   She posts mostly cards that are clever,
cute & make you want to copy them. Take a look when you get a
chance.  You won't be disappointed!

I am so glad we met....Nancy, thanks for coming to visit! 

The same time Nancy was in the store, another "celebrity" was in the store...Ann Corbiere Scott. 
Ann is a scrapbook teacher at several stores in the Valley, and she's
on the Rusty Pickle & Xyron design teams.  I didn't think to
take a photo with her...go figure, the chick with the camera glued to
her face forgot to take a photo...Ann was pretty fabulous herself! 
Thanks for visiting!
