Like a broken record...

Umm yep..here I go again with the excuses. Yet again I am here trying to excuse myself for not being updated on my blog. Perhaps in 2010 I will keep up? You still love me anyway right?

Gosh so much has happened. I believe an entire season has passed. I have so many things to share..so many pics..so much of everything,but that would take forever so I will just share a bit from the last few weeks and leave it at that. ;0)

So let's start with this past week..WOOHOO CHA BABY! I had a ball. I love every moment of it and once it ends, I have a little empty spot..is it really all over?
It is so inspiring and it always revs me up to start things going. I was fortunate enough to meet so many beautiful people from all over the world..even Ecuador. I even have a new pen pal. I made a lot of contacts for our up coming crop to benefit Autism Speaks. AND I got a whole heck of a lot of fun pics! Here we go.....

Umm Hello MAKING MEMORIES...I LOVE YOU! I was a wiener yet again this year and so was Illyse. How fab is that? Thank you thank you! You are so amazingly generous!
What a way for us to end the show!

And Teresa Collin's booth..simply amazing! Always beautiful and love the new lines. Teresa is so sweet that she makes it all the more appealing!

I was able to spend the first day of the show with a good amount of my friends which makes it all the more fun! Here are a few pics of us having fun!

I also met a few new friends Like Kim and KIKI and Julie!
Kiki is the creator of Kiki Art and she is an amazing woman. Not only is she talented,but she is warm and giving. I know that we will remain friends. Love that chica. Check her out! Here is a link to giveaway to all good stuff KIKI ART. Check it out for a chance to win http://redoaklines.com/2010/01/26/kiki-art-giveaway/

Kim manages the DT at Dixie Pieces and she is the nicest gal. She spotted me on the floor the first day. Then later that day I spotted Sherry and Brenna the owners of DP. I met a whole group of great gals and I wish I had taken my pic with all of them as well! Next time I guess.

Julie is the creator of a blog called a These are a few of my favorite things. She is a fun chickadee and very creative. Her blog is fab and you must check it out!
I also met a lot of great people including the owners of The Robin's nest. They were kind enough to let us alter their CHA Badges using their products and they donated a entire bus load of papers and dew drops to our crop for Autism Speaks. They certainly ROCK!

Lastly, I believe that I have a good chance to become the next spokes model for Therm-o-web. What do you think?

In other news we have a new challenge up at Scrap It Forward with prizes of course! Here is the layout that I created for it ;0)

and here is the original photo before I er umm altered it.....judging from the bags under my eyes that day, I think that it was an improvement. Anyway please come by and check out the challenge :0) http://scrapitforward.blogspot.com

And just to leave a little bit of my latest crafty bits..here ya go!

Okay skip skip..needle is scratching..I am picking it up and starting again. No more broken record. Here I am bloggers. I updated!
