Oh my ! Can't believe it !

Well the past week has had its ups and downs for sure. But I will only talk about the good stuff..because it feels good. And i am focusing on the good. Anyway on Friday, I was contacted by Best Creations paper co. to design/ make some samples for them to use in some trade shows and other things. Wow..can you believe it ? That really felt good. I am so flattered by that. Screamin' Susie's..who I still really miss (side note) had an account with them and a fond relationship with the company. Anyway, way back when they saw some of my layouts/projects and asked to bring them back to the owner and well months later..voila..they have asked me to make a few things for them. Yippee ! I am thrilled.

So... I am on cloud 9 feeling kind of good and 2 days later I find out that I was chosen for the DT on a new website called Scrapbook Supplies Direct. They are a new online store and message board trying to get out there and noticed. So I am now here to shamelessly promote. Join the board and grow with us...... :) There is even a little RAK giveaway on there that I am hosting..go check it out :) The girls there are great. Susan the DT coordinator is a great gal and FUNNY. Jeanne,the owner, is selfless...... she even put aside time to talk to me on the phone the day the Hurricane was expected to hit her area. WOW ! And just to help me with some techie problems that I was having with my computer...IMAGINE THAT !

Umm well Nicholas is now officially 9. He got his coveted Nintendo DS from my parents, and some games from his lil' bro. and Granny. We got him ROCKBAND for the Wii. He and my Dad played it together and here is a pic of that....certainly a site to see.

Now that Nicholas is choosing BIG EXPENSIVE GIFTS..we don't do the big million friends party thing anymore. So on Friday we will be taking 3 of his friends with us to ROCK CITY, an indoor rock climbing place, and then $5 Pizza from Little Caesars..maybe getting him expensive gifts is the way to gigantic party planning really takes a load off.

Well I am off for now...too tired...had a headache just about ALL DAY. Not fun. But then again..focus on the good..focus on the good :)

Shame on me !

NO I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. No I am not giving up blogging. I am just a slacker. I have been overwhelmed with school starting up, getting my classroom ready and life in general. So yep..I neglected my blog. So much has happened, so many pics to be shared and now they are yesterday's news. Whoops. So here goes nothing.

School stared and I think Adam is thrilled, Nicholas..not really. But he will live. Here are a few pics from the first day of school.
School started for me too. My class is pretty decent, sweet, just a bit chatty. Tonight is back to school night. Gotta get everything into gear. EEK !

I of course, have been scrapbooking. Sent some time at The Scrappin' Table. Had fun visiting with my friend Michelle and cropping with some other girls. There is a lot of great new product in there. AND kudos to my friend Michelle, the owner of The Scrappin' Table, who donated to Adam's soccer fundraiser basket. All the moms were thrilled with it ! I would have put my name in the raffle,but it would look kind of peculiar if I won...don't ya think? Thanks Michelle it made a great raffle item !
Here is a goofy layout,that I just love...just cause it is a bit out of the box for me...but now I am on a doodling kick...
Well this weekend my parents are coming in town tomorrow to celebrate Nicholas' b-day. He will be turning 9. Oh dear...where does the time go ? Then on Sunday I am having a Stampin' Up party. It should be a lot of fun and chaotic. Did I mention my best childhood friend is coming in town to stay with me on out will walk my parents, in will walk April and then the party (Stampin Up) will get started..oh my !
Well for now this is my update...goodbye for now my friends and hugs to all of you !
