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 go...no 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 :)
