Hi, Stampers!!

I've returned from Tampa, where I attended the Florida Music Educators' Association Conference and Convention.  It was a wonderful time (as always!) going to sessions, board meetings and meeting up with good friends.  This is my 38th annual state convention in a row!  I can hardly believe it myself.  I spent the better part of Friday observing and enjoying the rehearsals of the Middle School Treble and Mixed Choruses.  They were THE best ever.  Wonderful students and fab, fab, fabulous director/clinicians, Mary LaCasse Biddlecombe and Tesfa Wondegmagegnehu (Yes, I can pronounce it!).  These are such charismatic and inspirational teachers.  I know that many singers' lives were changed after 3 days with Mary and Tesfa.  I was moved to tears more than once!!

Couldn't resist these facebook images.  Mary definitely had her director face on in rehearsal but I love this pic with her wonderfully multi-talented choral director husband(Vanderbilt University), Tucker.

Okay then, (sigh) time to put on my greeting card teacher hat!  I love this week's projects. (But don't I always??) :-)  I'm thinking of adding a cute little banner on the "Tasty Truck".  Woke up at convention on Friday thinking that!  A little "somethin'" is also needed for our sandpiper card.

We'll meet at the Art Gallery of Viera at 10:30 am and 1:30 pm and at the Titusville Public Library at 10:30 am on Wednesday.  If you'll be in the area, email me at and I'll save a kit and a place for you!!

Happy Stampin'!!
