Surprise!

Today I had an interesting surprise that I had to share with all of you. Read on to hear what happened...

The past few days have been pretty busy with my CTMH business. My club meeting was Friday night and I attended a unit meeting/picnic yesterday with some great friends and 'sidelines'. All of last week was spent prepping for my club meeting and gathering all of the wonderful new products I wanted to share with my customers.

When I arrived home from yesterday's meeting, I went into my scrap room and was shocked to see that it looked like a bomb exploded when I wasn't looking! Since my hubby was busy, I started cleaning up and putting things away. I worked most of the evening, and finally headed to bed around 11:30.

This morning, I realized there was still another box of new product in the back of my car. So, my husband brought it in from the car, and put it up in my scrap room. Ugh! Still more things to put away...so around lunch time I headed up to get back to work! I had a TON of new stamp sets to put away, but I always turn the carrier sheets from my stamps around first so that you can see them from the front. One at a time, I started 'flipping' my stamps around. I got about half-way through when it happened...

I had just finished "flipping" one of the free stamp sets that we got at Convention this year. Right before I closed it and put it away, I felt a stamp on the outside of the carrier sheet. I figured I had just inadvertently put in on the wrong side of the sheet. But something felt funny...


















Can you see it?!? Here's a closer look...


















I found a rogue sticky-boy hanging out in this stamp set, waiting patiently for me to find him, since Convention in Anaheim! You see, I had shared stamps with a friend of mine, and I never even took this stamp set out of the pack. This little bugger was in my possession from Day 1 of Convention, and I never even knew he was there!

So...the moral of the story is:

When attending CTMH Conventions, look EVERYWHERE and in EVERYTHING! You never know when/where sticky-boy will make an appearance.

Needless to say, he made my day!! The only problem was that there was nobody here to share my joy (the hubby just doesn't understand the whole sticky-boy obsession), which is why I am sharing here. Hope you liked my story :o)

That is just too sweet! I tried so hard and never found one at conventions. If he is a wanderer, he could visit me in Fl.
