I know that I'm not the only one who has ever had an idol of some sort and when they finally get the opportunity to meet them, they just don't know what to say or they stumble all over themselves...right? Please don't tell me that I'm the only one....really? I am? ;)
Not too long ago, I found out that Miss Alli Miles (illustrator for Papertrey Ink) moved into my community...not just that, but moved literally a couple of blocks away :) I was thrilled to find this out and even more thrilled to have met her in person at a Christmas Amuse class that was at our local stamp store. Well, since then we have chatted and she invited both myself and my friend Angela to a direct sales business party that she was hostessing. Let me tell you....I was completely starstruck! I'm not kidding! I seriously babbled all night and didn't even know what to say (other than "thank you") when she gave both Angela and myself one of her very own illustrated stamp sets! Talk about a sweetheart!
So after the party was over I knew that I just had to make her a thank you card using the very set that she gave us but didn't get a chance to right away because we went out of town for the weekend, deadlines hit and then I threw my back out and was out commission for a couple of days. So this is kind of a funny story that she doesn't know because I was actually avoiding her like the plague because I wanted to make her a card and deliver it in person for when I was to pick up the goodies that I ordered at her party. The poor thing was trying to get in touch with me and trying to swing by to drop the stuff off but that just wouldn't do because I still didn't have her card ready! I know, and your right...I am a nut! See, I told you all that I get a little crazy when I'm starstruck!
Well thank goodness, I finally got the card made last night and delivered it today so I can finally stop avoiding the poor girl! lol I am very happy to announce that she loved it and if she reads this post then I'm positive that she will realize that what a dork I really am! lol
