I have crop room envy.

Yesterday was our first crop at Betty's and it was heavenly. The crop room is huge and comfortable. I am so glad that Betty's welcomed us with open arms. It was a great day and I got my hands on some new PRIMA. The basic grey was gorgeous and we got our hands on some gorgeous ribbon, too.

I want to thank all the ladies and Kale who came and hungout with us at Betty's. A great time was had by everyone. In fact, they had such a good time that they signed up for Betty's $5 crop on the 30th, so if you missed out, give Betty a call and get your name on that list. They have space but it is very limited.

Our crop next month is the 3rd Saturday of the month, February 20th. Give Betty a call and sign up for that. I am not sure if I can make the one on the 30th but I will definetely be there for the one on the 20th.

Also, the new Fancy Pants should arrive this week, so if you missed the crop come out this is week and pick this up. It's gorgeous.

Write soon,

P.S. I still have not had a chance to get my layouts from storage so I can update my 2009 count but I will update my 2010 count sometime this week if not later on tonight and post some of my samples with the new paper at Betty's.

It's so beautiful...

I just got my hands on the new Basic Grey Origins and I must say it is beautifullll. I am not sure what I love more the blooms, the pops, the sparkling rubons, the writer's blocks or the doilies...oh and the american crafts thickers are ooh, la, la and about 4 of them match the bg collection. OMG.

This is a drive by blog. I need to get out now and scrap. I should have quite a few samples with it on saturday at Betty's. Don't forget to stop at Betty's for our crop and to check out the new stuff including bg's Origins collection and some more top secret picks.

Write soon,

Happy New Year...

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, it is unbelievable that 2010 is here.

With that comes random thoughts and random blessings:
the dr gave us good news - it is not growing at all!
my sister in law is having a boy (she has a girl)
Veronica is having a girl (she has a boy)
my husband is in good spirits
the store is so empty - it's weird
got some confirmations and things are on their way for our first crop at Betty's
the crop is full
the product is fabulous
I got to scrap the last few days
I have to go back to work on Monday
I need to update my count for 2009 - had layouts at the store that I need to add to my books - will have to do this soon.
I need to start a count for 2010. My goal is once again to get to 365. But, with all this extra time who knows what mayhem I might get myself into.
I will get a license this year.
I will go on a cruise this year
I will finish my ESOL endorsement this year.
I will finish my reading Endorsement this year.
I will cherish my friends.
I will laugh even more.
I will, will, will...

I know it sounds kind of lame but I am doing self-actualization. I think that's what they call it. If you believe that you will do something the positive energy will help you get it done. Oprah had a boatload of people bragging about this and meeting spouses, getting new jobs, pregnancy, etc. So, I'm going to try it. It's like if you build it they will come - if you believe it you will do it. So, here is to believing!!!
