YIKES! I'm falling behind here! Welcome, to all of you new stampers and crafters! I don't remember exactly when I became the co-moderator here, but it was last year some time. I'm so sorry I didn't immediately acknowledge your introductions!

Hey, Stormie! Welcome! I can't wait to get to know you through Spark! Have fun on your letterboxing trip!

Welcome, COO_KIE! I'm looking forward to seeing you here!

Hope all of you will post photos & stuff! I'm going to try to do the same. My challenge will be finding time. I'm sure you can all commiserate with me...so much to do, so little time!

Good luck to all of you in your life quests!
