New Stampin' Up! Catalog 2009-2010

I finally got my new catalog the other day. I've had a chance to thumb through it once so far. I'm gonna go look at it again later tonight. I like the In Colors this year. It usually takes me a while to get used to them or love them, then by the time the year is almost over I think "why did I wait so long? I love these colors?" but this time I think I will have NO Problem!
I love the new personalized stamps, the birthday collections, the little tip bars, I love how each section starts with facing pages of the best of the collection! Speakin' of collections... the organization collection~ LOVE IT! I'm not saying I'll get organized with it, I'm just saying it'll look pretty and maybe like I'm organized. I also love the medallion background stamp. All of the beautifully coordinated kits will make it so easy to start stamping and make it look like you've been doing it for years. Even the under $10 stamps and and kits! What do you think?

A Soldier Matters

Killed in action the week before, the body of Sergeant First Class John C. Beale was returned to Falcon Field in Peachtree City , Georgia , just south of Atlanta , on June 11, 2009 . The Henry County Police Department escorted the procession to the funeral home in McDonough, Georgia. A simple notice in local papers indicated the road route to be taken and the approximate time.
Nowadays one can be led to believe that America no longer respects honor and no longer honors sacrifice outside the military. Be it known that there are many places in this land where people still recognize the courage and impact of total self-sacrifice. Georgia remains one of those graceful places. The link below is a short travelogue of that day's remarkable and painful journey. But only watch this if you wish to have some of your faith in people restored. Please share widely.
