Hello, this is Mary Michele's Mama. Brian and Michele have bought land in Southern Ohio. Part of the land has been cleared, gravel has been put down. Now they are on vacation camping on their land! How cool is that. Saturday Brain and Michele will go to the the Barnseville pumpkin festival.. Hope they have a great time!

Wanna play?
Feeling inspired?
I have a deck on the all new Heidi Swapp playing cards, and I would love to send some out to any of you talented girls to play on!!
the rules of the game you ask?
well there are NO RULES!!
It's just supposed to be FUN! Playing is a huge part of CREAVTIVITY! These cards provide a sturdy surface that is not too big, but not to small ( 5 x 7 I'm thinking )so let your imagination run wild! NO pressure! Just have FUN playing!!
Some ideas:
Think of a message, or a quote something you wish to remember, something that inspires you.
Pull out a variety of items from your STASH...stuff you love.
And please..try something NEW! Allow yourself to go outside your comfort zone a little bit!!
And if your thinking your not crafting enough for this...
write out a favorite poem
attached a cool photo you like...
just do something that is you...
All that I really ask of you?
I will gladly send you 2 cards to play with, one for you to keep and the other send back my way please, I would love to put them all together on a big jump ring, to look at for some inspiration when I'm stuck in a rut, so to speak.
So ladies...are you game?
If you are in please e-mail me at lukeandmimi@aol.com and I start getting some in the mail!!
And for some real INSPIRATION, I looked up these playing cards on Two Peas in a Bucket, and I found this she is the most talented lady i've seen!! Really! Her stuff is to die for! Her whole gallery is amazing as well as her Blog.
Thank Kara for allowing me to share!! My Studio Pink
