Home from Kentucky!

Boy, I've never been so glad to get into bed last night!  After 5 nights in a small cabin with no bathroom, and 4 kids, I REALLY need some rest after that vacation.  It was fun, and I loved being with my family, but camping with a 6 month old is exhausting.  Not to mention that I got some sort of poison ivy, and my daughter got car sick, and I got a stomach ache on the drive home.  It felt SO good to take a bath, and be home! I'm posting a few of my pictures from the trip.  Andrew with Carter on the hammock, Erica after a day in the sun and Stampin' Up!'s tattoos on her cheek, and Ryan with his cousin.  We camped with 30 members from my family.  Now, on to some stamping news!!  The new catalog debuts in ONLY 1 more day!  Check back here on July 1st for a new catalog special!  I've scheduled my new catalog open house on July 9th here at my house, along with a Christmas in July Card stack on July 22nd, and a double stamp camp on Sunday, July 12th with the new Ronald McDonald house stamp set, and one of the new mini card kits on page 208.  Tomorrow is the June card class...I still have space, just email me by noon tomorrow if you want to come, and feel free to bring a guest.  I'm posting a few of the cards that we'll be making.  Most of it will be new stamp sets and colors, and then I threw in the "B" fabulous card because I really love that set, and it's retiring. I copied that one from Tamie Ackerson.  Only ONE day left to get all the retired sets that you want!  Big Flowers, Just B, Hugs and Wishes, Great Grad, and so many more!!  I'm doing a special for one more one retired set, get one at 1/2 price!  Email me with as many as you want at  When I got home, I got an email from my good friend Sandy Haynes, and her daughter was in an ATV accident and sustained head injuries and is in ICU in Grand Rapids.  Many of you know her, so please keep Melissa in your prayers.  Her son Garret was just in a snow mobile accident just a year ago, and had similar injuries that were even worse.  I will keep you updated as I hear from Sandy.  Life is precious!  We worry so much about our children, and just today in my Bible study, I read about calling upon the Lord to heal our Children now even before they are hurt or injured.  It is one of our promises that the Lord can and will heal when we call upon Him! So, I remind all of you today to pray that God puts a hedge of protection around each one of your children.  Have a wonderful day, and I look forward to stamping with many of you tomorrow!
Stamped Blessings,


  1. Looks like Erica got lots of sun and fun. She is such a cutie. They are all growing up so very fast before our eyes. You know with all the deaths in the news and now with the news about Sandy and her children you just never are prepared for the unexpected. We have to cherish those wonderful moments we have with our children and love every second of it. We cannot take for granted being right with the Lord for one second. I pray for my unsaved family members we never know when it will be too late.


  2. Hey Ronda,
    So where in Kentucky were you? We went camping last weekend at Greenbo state park which is about 30 min from our house. Anyway, it looks like ou had a lot of fun.

    Give everyone my well wishes!

  3. We were in Burkesville, KY. It's in the Dale Hollow lake area, which is really close to the Tennessee border. We have family in Florida, and in Tennessee, so we meet there once a year because it is central. But, it is out in the middle of nowhere! Those mountains are a killer!
    Miss you, Denelle!
