thank you all SOOOOOO much for the warm congrats and encouragement in the comments and emails that i have recieved!! what a delight it was to open up the blog to that embarassignly huge response... so thank you with all my heart! you have no idea...
it's midnight- sunday and i am sitting here eating an egg salad sandwich. the cravings are OUT OF HAND. during church all i could think about was lays original potato chips and ranch dip!!!
yesterday em, jodi and i visited a new store here in town called 'devine memories'... it's so cute.. looks like a great store. it's got a great vibe! we decorated conversation hearts boxes... i say, never too early to celebrate valentines! tell people you love, how much you love them! there were lots of ladies that turned out to play! thanks for having us sandy and michelle! i came home and crashed... took like a 3 hour nap! (on a sat. afternoon... UNHEARD OF!) then went to bed last night at 9:30pm and didn't get up until about 9am today! THEN... i took ANOTHER 3 hour nap today. ok... this is NOT normal.
(by the way... the egg sandwich is totally hitting the spot!) i don't remember the cravings this intense or being this tired in previous pregnancies.. but that was over 5 years ago!
i haven't been very creative in the last few days... but i did just pull out the QVC kit that Lisa B will be presenting on Wed. Jan 18th... have you all heard about this one??? if not... go to lisa's site: lisabearnson.com and check it out! i am not sure how i got so lucky on this gig... i was selected to be one of the manuf. for this totally cool offer from QVC. lisa put together this idea that kindof reminds me of CKU-A.... in terms of totally completing an album-following an outline and having everything, including instructions to get you through the whole thing.
let me tell you one thing first off... about QVC. i now know FIRST HAND how unbelievalbly committed QVC is first to VALUE and close second, to QUALITY! you would not believe how HARD it is to get kits and products past their quality control program... let alone get a kit TO quality control because it is a good enough value to the customer. if you have never made it a point to watch the scrapbook events on QVC.. you SHOULD. the kits are amazing. you can't go wrong.
ok, having said that... i'll quick explain this TSV (TSV stands for 'today's special value- that alone ensures an even MORE tremendous opportunity). OK- it's called "Lisa's Favorite Albums". there are 4 albums in the program. you get one every 3rd month. you pay for each one separately and they charge your credit card when it ships. basically, this is a year deal, so it's not too overwhelming! the very first one is called "all about me"... and it's a heidi swapp kit!!! the album is a beautiful fabric covered 8x8 that comes with it's own box even. .. (in the end... all 4 albums go in a really cute keepsake box)
you get this HUGE ARRAY of products...and a very impressive well-designed instruction kit. i am completely delighted with the kit. i think they did an awesome job creating it!
sooo... that is my task, next couple days is to complete my book about 'me' and show you...
go to that lisabearnson.com and check it out... the website is beautifully done!
so check back! hopefully i will have something to show! creating this album is perfect for right now... it can be for my new baby... s/he will know exactly what i was like... what i was into... while i was pregnant!
seriously, thanks again for all the wonderful comments and all the congratulations! we could not be more thrilled... and admittedly a little scared! but ready or not... here we go! man, that sandwich sure tasted good!
...... good nite!
