My husband, stepson, and I recently vacationed in Florida, and I had the good fortune to take some time to meet Kittie Caracciolo (Kittie747). For those of you who are familiar with and love Kittie's work, you can only imagine how excited I was! The first time we met was for lunch at her place of work where we had an engaging two hours together! She is such a delightful person; it was like we had been friends forever! I also met a few of her co-workers, who are also Splitcoaststampers (ladyjanek, cerindo, moonchild4965, and wereids---I'll be checking out their galleries and hope you will, too.)
Kittie and I met again a couple days later at her beautiful home where I saw her awesome stamping space and watched the artist in action. She shared with me her techniques and tools that she uses to create her beautiful scenery cards and then had me make a couple of my own scenes on watercolor paper, which I will incorporate into cards. Needless to say, I was a bit nervous having the master watch me, but she is such a friendly and humorous person that she quickly put me at ease.
Here are a few pictures I'd like to share with all of you of our time together. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside--what a gorgeous smile! There are so many wonderful people on this site that I would like to meet in person, and I was certainly blessed to meet this charming lady.
Kittie, thank you so much for the time we had together, your generosity, and the great memories I'll have!

It was such a pleasure to have Charlene come to the hospital where I work for us to meet. We had such an enjoyable and easy time together. I felt like I had known her my whole life in just a few short minutes. I think the thrilled expression on both our faces tells how much fun we had.

Okay, I think you two have secretly known each other for 25 years...are sure you didn't go to high school together. You just don't look like people who have never met.....You look good together....Charlene, move to Florida....Kittie, move to Michigan. Better yet.....BOTH OF YOU MOVE TO COLORADO! Think you could do it before August? I know some good realtors in your two towns.....

Hey all of you, I think you all need to move to New York! We don't have hurricanes or floods or tornados here, and these days, we don't even have snow! LOL! Glad you had fun visiting. Maybe someday I can visit with you all too! Hugggs!
