Hi GingerScraps Friends! This is Ginger here today, my lovely Shannon needed to step away from the computer for the weekend… How Dare She!! So please forgive typos and misspellings…. I always say, The mistakes give it character, but that is when they are my mistakes. haha. When I find typos or misspelling done by another, I judge and wag my finger disapprovingly. Hehehe. Didn’t you all miss me and my nonsense for the opener of our newsletter?

Ok now on to the Good Stuff!! And there is A LOT of it !!

Lets kick it off by welcoming our May Guest GingerBread Lady!! Valarie Ostrom!!


Here is a little bio from Valarie: I’m a 28 yr old stay at home mom during the week and I run a paper route on the weekends. I have been married almost 10 years to Blaine, who I met online. We have 2 girls Courtney (8) and Kelsey (5), a cat (Spyder) and a dog (Dixie). We live in eastern Kentucky. I have been designing steadily for about 4 years, off and on before that. I started out as a paper scrapper so my designs reflect that.
