And now on to the Blog Hop.

According to State Farm only 36% of people know the name of their neighbors! How sad is that!? Actually it is very sad.  I moved to the neighborhood almost 3 years ago now and only know a few people who live here.  I want to change that and I know it begins with me. This week I’ve been given a chance. The house across from me just sold and I’d like to introduce myself to my new neighbor.  But I have to admit I am a little nervous. So I did some research (hello Pinterest) to come up with a way without being too intrusive or rude.

How I introduced myself to my new neighbor

In the City Stamp Set

I make cards for a living and one of Stampin’ Up!’s new Host stamp sets got me inspired.  How about make a welcome to the neighborhood card?  And then I thought what about a home-baked treat as well. Who doesn’t like chocolate chip cookies?

Chocolate Chip Cookies

So I created this card and brought it over with some home-baked chocolate chip cookies. Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”  I’m sure he was talking about chocolate chip cookies!

Card and gift for new neighbor

Do you know your neighbors?  If not, make them a card and some cookies and go introduce yourself?

The new In the City stamp set is one of our exclusive stamp sets available to our hosts in this year’s catalog.  If you would like to earn this set contact me about hosting a party either on line or at home.

Remember, do more of what makes you happy!
