Today was the best last day EVER to our camping trip. I got to meet the fabulous folks behind House Mouse designs. I had e-mailed them because I was staying in Vermont and the cute little craft store that was selling their stamps was closed!!! So very sad right?!? Especially since the only store in Montréal that I've seen with their stamp is also closing...
So discovering their website I did something that I never ever do I wrote them! I'm usually way to shy to dare do something like that. But I soooo love their stamps... so I wanted to know where I could find them. Since they are based from Vermont really close to where I was staying, I thought there might be some other local store. Barry one of the owner's answered me (so fast actually I was super happy) and gave me some addresses and then to my complete surprise gave me the option of going to his house where they had some stamps that I could browse through!!!!!! Ohhhhh you should have seen me... I was like a groupie... I figured I must sound like one of those crazy fans that rock bands have!!!!
And then to really complete the fabulous trip over, Ellen the artist came to see us!!!!! She even signed some of my stamps and took the time for a picture with us.
From left to right Megan (my daughter, myself, Ellen and finally William in the front). William and Megan were super excited to be there and get some tips on how to draw (they looooove to draw as well). My 2 other boys were packing stuff up while we were there enjoying ourselves. You can see by my smile how happy I was!!!!! They were all so very nice. Barry made a huge impression on my son who thought he really was the coolest since he offered him soda and some candy lol. I'm still in shock that I got to meet them. It really was a dream come true!!!!!
Thank you so very much Barry, Nicole and Ellen for being such totally amazingly sweet people. And Ellen please continue to draw those fabulous Mouses and friends. I have a collection going and don't want to stop.
Hope all you my fabulous following friends had a great day as well. But I bet you can't beat this! ;o)
