A Muse Addicts Gathering in Austin

Last Thursday I got to do something fun! (Something fun without the kids - I don't get to do that very often these days!) I found out very last minute about an A Muse Addicts gathering - not only in my town, but right here at the community center in my neighborhood!! So of course I had to go! Now, I'm not going to claim to be an A Muse addict per se, but I do indeed love their stamps. And after this gathering, I may just have to become an official addict! (ok who am I kidding, I'm addicted to ALL things stamping!!) The gathering was a shoebox swap, hosted by Geeta, and our guest of honor was the one and only Lexi. They both did demos, we ate some food, made cards, and celebrated Lexi's birthday. Good times! Because I dragged my sister along last minute, I told her I'd prepare her swap as well - here's what I came up with for the two of us. The first card features Boris - one of my favorite A Muse stamps thanks to my chemistry roots. I added orange Stickles to his hair for extra fun. And the second uses more birth announcement leftovers, which I'm sure you all are going to get sick of seeing as I'm determined to use them up - this time I paired the DP and Kraft paper with the new Pink Pirouette from SU (love this new pink!!). The cow's spots have pink Stickles. There was also a door prize drawing, and I won this adorable combo made by Karen!! I just loooove it! The Elzybell coaster book is so cute! And she had a bunch of goodies tucked into the tin as well. I felt bad, my door prizes were not up to snuff - I barely got the swaps done much less door prizes! Now I know what kind of things people bring to these gatherings, though. I'm on the waiting list for the SCS gathering in October (again in my neighborhood!!), keeping my fingers crossed that I get a spot, because if it's anything like this A Muse gathering it will be FUN! Thanks for stopping by today. :-)
