Hey there craftin' bloggers!

This is going to be where I'll highlight contests, competitions, and their results! If you enter a card in our contest

I will put it on the website (with full credit to you) unless you would prefer me not to – in which case state that in your e-mail, please.

Well, Well, Well. The weekend has come and gone. But wait - what weekend? It came and went, all right, but I didn't know it was here! Carol decided to leave me (and, in turn, Class Act and Chapel Road) all alone this week while she is off having a grand ol' time in Atlantic City on her honeymoon! Well, yay for her. You guys really want to know what she did to me? As she was packing up Friday night she was like,

"Oh, Raychel, by the way, I told so and so that their orders would be out on Monday."
"Really, Mom, already? That's great!"
"Well, you see...you have to bring it to the post office for me on Monday, if that's okay?."
"Sure thing! Where are they?" - I shouldn't have asked.

They were yet to be completed. I spent my entire weekend in the garage with four machines running at 312 degrees! Have I mentioned that it was perhaps the hottest, most humid weekend we have experienced this summer? At least I may have lost 10 pounds in sweat - andddd on second thought, maybe you guys don't want to hear (or read) about that. Needless to say, YOU'RE WELCOME! :-) I think that that kind of work merits my own e-mail@classact.ca. I think I will pose that request to the vacationer whenever she gets her butt back to Canada and into the shop.

You know what the worst part of this is? I don't even think anyone reads this blog to date. I also have to get her to change that - pronto!

Here's the Starting Point...

Well, here we are - the official Class Act/Chapel Road Art Stamps Blog!

Just before we kick this thing off, I should probably introduce myself so that you know where this text is going to be coming from for the rest of this blog! My name is Raychel, and I am Carol's daughter :-). For those of you who don't know who Carol is, she is the owner/operator of both Class Act and Chapel Road, and as far as I'm concerned - she's a pretty cool gal!

Now, considering that fact, I can't say that I'm exactly the stamping pro that she is, or likely that many of you are, but it is my job to keep these blogs interesting, humourous, and informative! Come on, I've only lived with a stamp company operating out of my garage since...well, since I can remember. Anyways, Carol does feel confident in my writing abilities - I hope she knows what she's doing...and, also, I hope that you know what you're going to be in for if you continue to read this blog.

Please be forewarned that I have a rather dry, sarcastic sense of humour that I try to weave into almost everything that I write, even if it's not really that funny. That's just one little tidbit that you have to look forward to :-)

I think this is enough for the first post, so until next time!
Happy Stamping!
