The care below was created by Keri Meade, one of our "overseas" angels. :) I love this stamp set as well! Old World Ornaments

Valentine's and Anniversary

Sorry I haven't posted this week - it was the week of "love" at our house! Tuesday was our 8 year anniversary and then - well, yesterday Valentine's Day - you'll laugh at how we celebrated... Tuesday I made reservations at Lavelle's Bistro in Fairbanks. Very nice restaruant in one of the hotel's downtown. It was the first time that we had eaten there - and for sure going back!! It was soo yummy! They even had a Reisling wine, which I loved. I don't drink a whole lot and am not a huge fan of wine - except for sweet German wine! Dinner was lovely... then, we went to WalMart and treated ourselves with a new flat screen TV for the bedroom. Both of us have to have the TV on to fall asleep. Mine is more of a comfort thing... his reason - maybe it just puts him to sleep. Something about going lithargic when one watches TV! We had a 12" TV since we had gotten married - and this 24" is huge and bright compared to it - but at least I can read the list of what is on TV from bed! LOL
Valentine's Day was celebrated with Freddie going bowling with his "AMMO" team, and I waiting anxiously for the Papertrey Ink release! I am hooked... love the matching ink/paper/ribbon combo ~ especially since the ink is Palette ink, which we carry in our TAC catalog! Hopefully the colors are close to the same because I will be in love if the ribbon matches our TAC ink too!!!
This weekend I am attending a get-away crop with some lady friends of mine in the area. We rented a BnB outside of Fairbanks and plan to do some serious cropping!!! I have so much stuff packed, it isn't even funny... haven't even though about clothes!!! LOL
I also have photos to share from a swap that I hosted - hopefully I can post them before I leave tomorrow.
Have a great weekend!!!!
Inky Hugz!!!

February is my anniversary with The Angel Company! :) FIVE years!!! Woo-hoo!!! What a great five years it has been!

To celebrate... I am offering all new "angels" that get their "wings" through me... during the month of February... a FREE Scor-Pal! A necessary tool in any paper crafters arsenal! Woo-hoo!!!!
The Angel Company has a great extra offer for new angels this month as well!!! You know that it is organizational time - being the first of the year and all... why not get a head start on your organizing with some new organizational stamps!!!! "Arranging for Inspiration!" I can't wait to use mine. Maybe it will help to make tax time a bit easier next year! LOL (does anything make that easier, really...)
Today was a fun day! I had some OT to burn from last week, so I worked on part of the day. It was -40 or so at 10am still and ice fog was thicker than pea soup! But, I headed into Fairbanks anyway, as I needed to pick up some copies for work from Office Max. Ulterior motive!!! My friend Alysia told me about a new scrapbook store that had opened in Fairbanks - and neither of us had been there yet to check it out! So, after I finished my "work" errand, I popped in to check it out! Much to my surprise, it was none other than the owner of Back Porch Memories! Paula has recently moved to Fairbanks and expanded her online monthly papercrafting kit to a store and cropping area!!! Woo-hoo!!! I left with a handful of goodies and having had a great conversation with a fabulous person!!!
Happy Monday!!!
