Littlest Stamp Shop?


So here we are on day two in the blog world and I was thinking about stamping...go figure?! What got me thinking about this topic was the big pile of Littlest Pet Shop toys that my three year old daughter has spread all over the floor. Have you ever seen the accessories that come with those little bobble head animals? First you get the beauty parlour accessories. You know, those frogs and rabbits need to be groomed in order to leave the pet shop. Oh and the duck who has a bath cap...you can't forget her. And all dogs need slippers so their paws don't get cold. I have to tell you, for a three year old, or for any little girl really, Littlest Pet Shop (LPS) is all the rage. Fast forward oh about 27 years and you have ME! The only difference is that my passion is stampin' and if you visit my stamp room you could call it the Littlest Stamp Shop. Ok...so a whole room of rubbah is not a LITTLE room, rather a sanctuary of peace. I often have visitors over who ask me if I have a store in my basement. They walk into my room and stare at the wall to wall stamps, accessories, ink and paper. Then of course I have my papercraft samples and that's it...instant love. Rewind 27 years, and put yourself in my 3 year old's shoes again...her love for LPS takes on a whole new level when she opens up the LPS flyer (the one that comes with all the LPS pets) and NO WONDER we love and have to have all the latest stamp sets and accessories in the Stampin' Up! catalogue. It's a conspiracy if you ask me, but I wouldn't change it for the world.

Happy Stamping!

LOL! Serena is OBSESSED with those LPS.. to the point where even her younger brother wanted some, just so he wouldn't be excluded from her play anymore.

Miss you tons!
