My Sweet Petunia, Inc. and MISTI are Born

Well it has finally happened!  After many months of trying to figure out how I was going to pursue this project,  it has finally happened.

Many months ago,  I was making one hundred Christmas cards for the pastor at my church to give out.  I kept making mistakes in stamping and my neck was starting to hurt from craning over my cardstock.  I thought that there must be an easier way to mass produce cards.  I had the genius idea of using washi to tape my stamp press to a mouse pad.  Let's say that was not very precise.  The next day I headed to Lowe's and perused the aisles until I had supplies to make my idea.  A few more trips back to Lowe's and I had a working prototype.  The first time I used MISTI was to complete those Christmas cards.  I cried after the first two stamps.  I used it some more and realized that I need some thing to hold my paper in place.  I thought about it and made it magnetic.  So that is how MISTI was born.  I also refer to it as my stamper.  I hope you enjoy what I have to share.
