I am one lucky gal to have life-long friends who are there when needed!!!
I asked Edward, (the one with the beard on the far right), realtor and friend, if he could
help me move a couple of rooms of furniture out of my home to my garage to make room for
furniture I was moving from Mother's home. Not only did Edward show up but also the other members 
of the Bojangles's breakfast group.  Within 15 minutes, 2 bedrooms and a dining room were
emptied  leaving the content of drawers and dust that hadn't seen sunlight in years!!

Mallard Creek is changing physically, but the love, soul and heart of its people are still deeply embedded  within each of us!  I am truly blessed and proud to say "I'm a native of Mallard Creek!" and to
call these guys my cherished friends!

Thank you for being there for Mother and me!

Thanks to you for stopping by today to see what the Savvy Southern Sister is up to!

Yall come back now!!!

Visit from Julie!

The last couple of months have been rather busy with. . .well. . . LIFE!
Now with LIFE slowing down some or at least, getting back to normal,
I hope  to visit with you more.
The first of November, the highlight of my Stampin' Up! career happened. . .
my upline, Julie Gunhus traveled across country from Seattle to
Charlotte to visit the Savvy Southern Sisters!
Savvy Southern Sister Stampers
The first event of the day was, of course, swapping!  It wouldn't be
a Stampin' Up! affair without swapping of ideas!
After swapping, a short downline meeting, and a question and answer
period with Julie, it was time to get busy doing with we love doing the most. . .
STAMPIN'!.  Julie led a scrapbooking class using
 the "Merry Moments Simply Scrappin' kit!
After a fun day of fellowship, lots of  laughter, good food, good conversations,
and creative stampin', Julie and I took a tour of Sue's craft cabin and
the city of Charlotte.  A quick change of clothes, we headed to the
Speedway Club for a relaxing dinner and a chance for me to
pick Julie's brain!!! 
Julie, a BIG thank you for your motivating visit, your beautiful friendship,
and the perfect timing of your trip.  You appeared when I needed
a friend the most!!!  You are the BEST! 
Thank you for stopping by to check out what the Savvy Southern Stampers
have been up to lately!
Y'all come back, now!
