My neighbor Tammy has been away from work on sick leave with a sprained foot. She called last night to ask if she could bring goodies to class ... she was "bored" and looking for something to do. She didn't have to ask me twice! These photos show only a portion of the fabulous food she brought to stamp class! Isn't she awesome?!
