I decided to sneak in a peak of the soon to be released 2015 Occasions Catalog at my Library Stampin’ for Adults Class last Thursday.  We meet monthly, third Thursday, 1-3 p.m, $3.00, no reservations or experience required.  It’s a great way to spend two hours!

So for this class we used the Celebrate Today photopolymer stamp set.  It’ll be available for purchase on January 6, 2015.  (2015!!! Really!?!?!?)

Have a great day. I know I have some final purchases to make, plus, along with a few of our Fire Department members, we’ll be delivering an awesome array of gifts to a family we adopted for Christmas.  They’ve undergone some nasty mishaps in 2015 and this will help them have a super start to 2015.  I am so proud of my (small) community for stepping up the way they have!
