No fooling around today : ) Amazing deals on stamps, and lots of other links!

Happy day after April Fools Day everyone, hope that you were able to avoid any jokes played on you by family members/friends.

In the upcoming weeks I will be posting some projects for a company called "Factory Direct Craft"  Will be showing a number of ways you can use craft items to make decorations for your garden : )  There are tons of great items available at Factory Direct Craft, am looking forward to sharing some fun and easy projects with you all : )

Today (hopefully) am going to go on a walk with hubby, then get the wood needed to make our raised vegi garden, and.....might even put the raised bed together!  Still need to figure out exactly what we are going to plant, but so far we know that bell peppers, tomatoes, corn, carrots, basil, oregano, thyme are in the plan.

This weeks links are a collection of things I have been finding online and bookmarking, no set theme, but some great information to enjoy.  Keep thinking that I will run out of things to link to, and am continually surprised at how each month I manage to bookmark close to 200 interesting and unique ideas for paper crafting.

Don't forget to "like" the facebook page for AfterHoursStamper, I usually post there once a day, as well as follow on Pinterest (I have a papercrafting board, as well as a number of other boards).

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all of your links & posts, thank you.

I did take the Creative Chemistry 101 & that was a fantastic experience, learned so much my brain was on overload, I'm still learning after stamping for 18+ yrs.

I was with you in the Simple class, another great learning experience.
