CHA, so many surprises and other things too !

Tally girls here, tally girls there, tally girls EVERYWHERE ! Here we are at Dinner the night before CHA. This was a fun night and a great celebration. We got to all meet up (some of us for the first time)and most importantly celebrate Ms. Shirley's Birthday. The next morning Jenn and I bumped into Rachel (Ho), Christine (Top Tally) and Shirley getting our badges at CHA. It was kind of disappointing because Illyse only got to see them momentarily. So come on back to Cali soon !


CHA was fabulous, there was so much to see. It is overwhelming and exciting. I love making things, learning new techiniques for product and meeting a lot of new people. During CHA I had the surprise of my scrapbooking "career" (I use that term loosely) when I was stopped by the making memories people and told that I won the grand prize. Here I am winning and looking like a big nerdo. I would put the video on here to view,but I am just not that techy. So follow the link!
Some major changes are occuring in my life right now. I have realized in a not so pleasant way that not everyone can be happy for you in some of your greatest moments. I am so saddened by the entire thing...but it is time for me to re-evaluate things. I have to remember to look at the big picture in life and not sweat the small stuff. Your true friends will always shine and lift you at times like these. Friends old and new thank you...I love you for that!
In other news I am also leaving the Red Bee DT. I have had a great experience there,but it is time to move on and try out new things...explore a bit. I will miss my special people there..but we will always be in touch. For any of you who have possibly signed up for my class....PLEASE TAKE NOTE.... I HAVE CANCELLED IT. So sorry for anyone who wanted to take it. An unexpected event has interfered with it, so it is better to reschedule at another time.
Big Hugs to all of you :)
Christine

You know Christine, I admire you. The "high road" is ALWAYS the road to take, even tho I often deviate from it myself.
You rock Sweetie...and it's obvious to all that WANT to know you!

Michelle said...

I don't think you looked nerdy winning that awesome prize from MM. I probably would have started crying or something :) Congrats again, couldn't have happened to a more deserving person!

~Kammie~ said...

you were TOO calm when he walked up to you and told you that you won, BUT I think more like you were in shock--ME? Miss Potty Mouth would have screamed with probably an obscenity or two in there!

that was so cool that you won! you deserve it! better you than some store that would probably turn around and sell it!

can't wait to see what you make with all of it :O)

I'm so happy you won! You deserve it! You finally get to win a prize and it has to be so bittersweet! Those tally girls are such a hoot! I wish I could have joined you for dinner. I only got to talk with them for a few minutes at CHA.

I just read your blog for the first time and really enjoyed it. Sorry you've been having a rough time lately. I am absolutely in awe of all you have been able to accomplish! Wish I could meet you as well. I'm new to Tally and have so much to learn. Don't let the drama get you down. Sounds like you've established a good foundation for yourself. Keep on scrappin'! It's amazing the joy it can bring and the situations it can resolve!

Little Windy said...

I believe you get what you give in life. The fact that you won the prize tells me that you are a good person. Some people live to start trouble. Let it go. Enjoy your prize and HE double hockey sticks to the rest of them! (LL)
