Scrapbooking With A Red Hatter

I love living life to the fullest and so do my Red Hat sisters of the Royal Reds of Rochester! The memories that we make together through those “full” moments are simply irreplaceable, and we like to keep those memories alive through the art of scrapbooking.

Honestly, I am not a crafty gal by nature, but scrapbooking is as easy as 1, 2, 3. One, print out some great pictures from special events. Two, pick out some cute paper and cardstock, such as Red Hatter Craft Paper. Three, add embellishments like stickers, glitter, feathers, and stamps and begin building the perfect scrapbook page.

I’ve picked out some fantastic products from to start you on your way to creating artistic pages and falling in love with scrapbooking yourselves. If you ladies already have the scrapbooking passion, grab a sister by the hand and show her the wonders that this glorious art can hold.

Scrapbooking can bring some great parties, and what red hatter doesn’t like a party involving food, friends, and gossip. Have everyone bring their supplies and a dessert to pass, and all you have to do is provide the house, coffee, and tea. Let everyone know that if they need a great dessert recipe to check out the recipe of the week found on the bottom of the homepage. Let me know how things turn out, as always I love to hear from you!

Until next time!

Passionate About Purple Hats

Hello lovely ladies of the Red Hat Society!

So ok, I don’t know about you, but I was SO confused about this whole “purple hat all year round” thing, that I was about to have my freshly dyed do go all in a tizzy.

But of course in traditional Diva Dishberry style, I nosed out the scoop and am now here to share it with all my lovely Red Hat sisters. So here it is; Her Royal Highness, The Exalted Queen Mother, Sue Ellen Cooper, has announced that in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Red Hat Society we are now, and going forward, for the entire year of 2008, allowed to wear purple hats any time our sweet little red hat hearts desire.

Now ladies, you all know what that means… IT’S TIME TO GO SHOPPING! So lets hit the purple hat section of and do a little damage! In all seriousness, I do adore purple hats so I am extremely excited. I picked out a couple of my favorite bad hair hiders to share with you gals. Be sure to check out the glorious Amelia Purple, I do love a good hat with feathers, and the swanky Purple Sequin Floral Fedora, I feel so very J.Lo in this one!

Even though I personally think my taste is fantastically fabulous, you sisters might have some other ideas of your own when it comes to red hat fashion. You know I love hearing from you, so tell me how you are going to change things up for the celebration.

Until Next Time!
