We are off to our cottage but guess what arrived right before we walked out the door? That's right ~ my July Paper Pumpkin! So, you know what I will be doing while we are on 'vacation' ~ again! What a month! I really can't wait to get back to work on August 1st and to see all my friends again! Paper Pumpkin is so convenient as a 'take with you' craft project ~ want to try it ~ click the Gorgeous Grape link below to sign up. You completely control how many boxes and how long you want to continue! It's fun!
MYKONOS, an island south of mainland Greece is an exceptionally beautiful location. I will post several pictures today and more tomorrow. I know you will want to put it on your 'bucket list'.
Our ship, Jewel of the Seas, anchored off the coast of Santorini, a southern island of Greece. A smaller boat took about 15 minutes to ride to the shore where we were able to take a cable car to the top or take another boat to another part of the island, the village of Oia. There are steps ~ 587 of them to the top of Thira ~ they are made of cobblestone, smooth and slippery. Alan and I choose the boat which, dropped us at the bottom of a very high 'cliff' and, after a very steep climb, we met a bus to take us into the tiny town of Oia. From there we went to Thira, a larger village about a half hour away. All beautiful.

I will add some pictures of the cruise ship, Jewell of the Seas, below but I wanted to make sure that I mentioned Stampin' Up!'s SPECIAL that is going on now ~ it's a SMART START SPECIAL! During July and August Stampin' Up! is adding to the value of their STARTER KIT so it is a good time to take advantage of becoming a demonstrator ~ even if you join for a short period of time to check it out! They've added $30 more so that you choose $155 in product in your kit. And next month they will send you a coupon for $10 additional FREE product of your choice! And, as a demonstrator you save 20% EVERY time you order ~ it is a savings! If you have questions, call me ~ 757-641-9354.
I am definitely not ready for 'fall crafting' but I thought it best I let you know that PAPER PUMPKIN has something special going on in August. In addition to the August Pumpkin in your mail box Stampin' Up! has coordinated a card kit (24 card bases of two designs with coordinating envelopes) available August 1 for $10. This would be on a regular order, in fact ~ if you will let me know I can place the order for all of us. I will have more information for you soon. Here's the video............
I am still trying to catch up with myself after our fabulous trip. We left Rome on Sunday morning and arrived home about eight that night. Add the six hours difference and that was about two in the morning. Needless to say all I accomplished on Monday was sleeping, laundry, sleeping, laundry, repeat! I seem to be better adjusted now so I am getting ready to pack up for my niece's wedding in Nashville. I have wonderful pictures to post but I will have to wait ~ hope you don't mind. I will try to do another post tomorrow but then it will be the beginning of next week before I can guarantee consistency! So glad to be back on my blog!!!!
