All Star weekend in Georgia!

Happy Kitchen Sink Monday… and happy is an understatement!

This weekend was KSS’ first workshop, which was held in Warner Robins, GA. My dear friend Traci (who joined me to add a helping hand) and I, had the time of our lives!!!! It was a thrill & joy getting to meet and work with KSS Crew Members: Dee (who made all the arrangements), Lisa & Lynn (who both traveled many miles to help and share their projects at the workshop) …. along with the pleasure of getting to know and spend a full day stamping with an amazing and charming group of ladies who came to learn all they could about multi-step stamping! Thank you ALL for an incredible weekend ladies! And heartfelt thanks to Dee, Lisa, Lynn & Traci… this event couldn’t have happened without you all!:)

I promise to share photos and more details from the workshop as soon as I get home (I am probably still flying home by the time this post is published) and can download my photos (yup, left my camera USB cable at home! I knew I had forgotten something at home!).

While I was gone enjoying Georgia’s sweet southern hospitality … my 3 men (DH & 2 DS) were home having a great time too, which included an awesome Dodger game! Since it was also a Father & Sons weekend at my house, here is a belated post with a Father’s Day card that had slipped by me and I never got to share.

  1. Your card is wonderful Maria! I love the subtle background with the splash of color in the stars! That little glove charm is just perfect!

    Can’t even begin to tell you thank you enough, or to convey how much fun I had! I’m so glad I got to meet you and spend time with your crew and friends and customers! It was a fabulous weekend and I hope I’ll be able to see you again! Happy to have my hands on one set from this month’s release! Can’t wait to play some more! I have my eye on one stamp set from the next release too!


  2. It was WONDERFUL to meet you and Traci at the KSS event – thanks so much for allowing me to present my projects! Love your Father’s Day card – the cute little charm is just the perfect touch. Hope you arrived home safely!


  3. Thanks for a fantastic day of stamping and I love all my new goodies! Sorry you had to deal with so much rain! In Georgia, it always seems to either be a feast or a famine when it comes to rain! I’ve already placed a large order and I can’t wait to see all the additional new releases! Now, if I could just finish my stamping room I’d be all set! Hmmm…I think I might “need” that baseball set, too!


  4. What a thrill and delight it was for me to get to meet you, Traci, Lisa, and Dee face to face during our amazing weekend in Georgia! What a phenomenal event!! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of this remarkable workshop.

    Your instruction and worksheets were perfect to convey the essence of mulit layered stamping and helped all to see the unique beauty of your wonderful stamps! What an exquisitely talented lady you are, Maria!!

    Love this fabulous baseball Father’s Day card! You know how partial I am to this set!!!
