I slept in until 10:25 this morning.
There is something wrong with me.
I am going to stay up so late tonight and work! I have so much to catch up on!
Last night we continued our “local store tour” at a great scrapbook store called “Scrap Happy Sisters”. Em and I drove about an hour to get there. I think I am continually amazed at the vastness of the greater-phoenix area. It’s seriously so huge! Anyway, we had such a great time last night. They had an amazing turn out… over 100 women crammed into their store. it was set up perfect for what we do. it’s usually a 2-hour deal, the first hour I talk about the “she” stuff, and different ideas and tips to using my products…then we do a raffle where someone wins me scrapbooking their photos. And that usually takes me about an hour… I kind of talk my why through it etc..it’s fun. I will admit, it’s a little harrowing to have 100 people watching you scrapbook!
This is Mari- she won the scrapbook page. I like to introduce people to the 9x9 size for scrapbooking, so I bring about 40 scrapbook pages mounted on boards so that everyone can see the real pages. Then I do a 9x9 page and give the winner a 9x9 album.
Here is also the owners and em…
Thanks for all the comments and email suggestions about different solutions for the hands-free baby holding… I ordered something from hotslings… it hasn’t come yet. And some sweet soul gave me a ‘metro wrap’ when I was at Creative Escape… it’s about 100 yards of fabric that you wrap around yourself multiple times- Capri seemed to love it! it’s quite comfortable. We are getting ready to embark on another ‘creative trip’ next week. I can’t wait. Miss Capri will be joining the creative team, so I have to come up with something that I can carry her in. I am sure one of these solutions will work! (this photo is of the “metrowrap”.
So I need to get some quality scrapbook time in!! I did a quick layout of quincy’s first day of school… SO cute. She is LOVING school so much! I plan to doing some scrapbooking tonight. i am working on the first quarter of my BIG PICTURE class! I am really excited about it. eric is buying me a microphone this afternoon, and I am getting ready to do an audio class description that you can download for free and find out all about what I will be doing… the class will get me to do a bunch of things that I have been wanting to do, and just haven’t made time etc. Plus, I will be teaching some of my favorite techniques, and I have a bunch of other surprises that will come up throughout the year. I just heard that registration will open Oct. 1st… so I need to get my descriptions and info together as soon as possible. If you have never visited the Big Picture website, check it out! I am so thrilled about the possibilities of this class… it’s totally making me happy and re-energized to think about.
