My Bellas arrived!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited...but before I can even stamp with them, I have to tell you all the funniest story.
Most days the post arrives while we are all eating lunch. Because my husband works from home when not traveling, and because he often has evening phone calls with California, we eat our main meal of the day at lunch time (around 12:45-1pm) and then have a lighter meal in the evening.
So today, we're sitting at the table and I hear the post being dropped in our little box. My daughter loves to get the mail, so she looks to me for an ok before running over to the post box which is right next to our front door.
She opened the box, took out the mail, and didn't return. Finally I asked her to bring the mail over - hopeful at this point that it would be something fun for me! As she carries over a padded envelope she says "Mommy's stampin' Bellas arrived!" with a big grin.
My husband says "What?" and she repeats her previous statement. Finally, I asked for the package so I could see. Dang...how did she know?? There are no bellas stamped, just Emily's adorable logo on her return address label. Now I'm caught! I should know better than to let her get the mail when I'm expecting something craft related to arrive soon - but I really didn't think they would arrive so quickly!
My husband looks over at the package and says "Is this something from Stampin' Up!?" to which I explain "no...a different stamp company" trying hard not to catch his eye to see the accusation of "and how much did THIS cost?" there.
Oh well...I was caught "cheating" and spending more money on craft stuff instead of saving it for traveling. Guess we need a "guiltybella" now! :-)
Ok...off to paint on my Tack-it to these beauties so I can get them nice and dirty - and post a card for you all!
