What a bad blogger I have been…

Feb 9, 2009

As soon as I got home from CHA I hit the ground running. No time to relax for a single second. I guess I will do a little run down of what has been going on in my little neck of the woods…

1st… CHA was a blast. Going with Maya Road is always so much fun. I did loads of make n takes, gave away fun stuff and got to chat with lots of wonderful people.

2nd… As soon as I got home I had to instantly start on a layout for Memory Makers. It is going to be included in an article in the July/August issue. I am not even going to tell you what it looks like as you will know it is mine the second you see it. It uses a product that I love dearly.

3rd… After getting the MM layout created and sent I had to box up supplies to recreate 40 techniques for my book. Lets just say it is very obvious after gathering all the supplies needed that I am not a simple scrapbooker… that box weighed 21 pounds. But it is now in OH awaiting my arrival on the 22nd. So super excited about this. I can actually see this book starting to come together.

4th… Started back on some book projects… just have 37 left to complete. I am on the homestretch now and can finally see the light at the end of that very long tunnel.

5th… Took a Copic Marker class with Caroline at the Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie. All I can say is trouble, trouble and more trouble. If you do not want or need another crafting addiction do not take a class. I am so in love with these markers and now I want them all. Below are a few of my first attempts… still need to make them into cards. I swear I am so bad about finishing class projects. I will get to it and then show you the finished results. Anyway if you have not been to see Carolyn’s store you really need to it is so worth the drive.

Copic Markers are so fun!

5th… Met Caroline at Scrappin’ Bunnies in McKinney she had everyone making really cute Valentines. I got to meet some sweet scrappers and talk to my MMM friend Staci. It’s so fun chatting with her… Staci is one fun and funky girl. We always laugh at how opposite we are in style yet love the same things… I even got her to purchase some Stickles. I’m slowly bringing her over to the glittery side.

Now I have to tell you about my sweet niece Amanda… I am so proud of her… this little cutie below

Sweetest Niece Ever...

Does this on the weekends…

Our little Powerlifter

She lifted her personal best of 230 pounds and placed 6th at this past weekends meet. Not bad for her first year in powerlifting. She has another meet on the 21st and is hoping to medal. So super proud of you Amanda.

That’s it… my life over the past week.

Have a wonderful evening.

    Well it’s good to see (or read) that you’re still alive. I was beginning to worry about you.

    By the sounds of it you have been a very busy girl. and I can’t wait to see the book when it comes out.
