first june ... now july... gone?
yikes... it's a little scary...
what a ride.
just got back from a wonderful week - the swapp family traditional beach trip. i stock up on photos of us having a wonderful time together as a family! eating hot dog on a stick and napping in the sand. i think that my kids just love being able to go outdoors in the summer! it's been so hot here in AZ. so hot.
cha was a blast.
i didn't get to walk around much
i do love love love seeing everyone, that we only get to see at shows... and catching up! from what i did see, i was loving... i thought that mm's new line 'simply fabulous'... was just that! loved the scrapworks ribbon... (drooling).. heidi grace's stuff was just TOO cute... and i loved her booth... there are these cutest group of (gasp) BOYS that run the 'treehouse designs' they had tons of cute new embellishments... and they are just a riot...
it was so fun to see my new products... it's so cool to hang it up on the wall and stand back to look at it. i have been so excited about the mini-iron! i LOVE it... and all the new chipboard is SELF-ADHESIVE... and the adhesive ROCKS. the new tapes are just super cute... i am posting some photos i shot quick so you can see...
another exciting part of CHA was the arrivial of my new CK book... 'love your handwriting'... i am quite thrilled with it... i have to admit. each time i have been part of a book, i have felt nervous about the release... hoping people would like it. this time is no different... but what is different is that it's very 'me'. just my thoughts and approach. the whole workbook approach is very different and i didn't know how it would all come together... i am delighted with it! so that was a relief. i have some new ideas for a book 'downloading'... again...something a little different... we'll have to see if i can free up some time to devote!
with all that behind me... this week i have another big endeavor ahead... CKU-A in provo. i am really looking forward to the class, and hoping that i can accomplish what i have planned. i can't imagine how we'll get through it all... but i am so excited.
