Crop Weekend

Had a great time at Karen's crop at Eaglewood Resort this past weekend. Demo'd the Cricut and the Gypsy by Provo Craft and finding new things about both every time I use them! I think that's cool, you can never know everything about a product so I love to learn as much as I can.

I also became a Great-Aunt again! My niece Kathy and her husband Brian had a baby boy on Friday! He was supposed to wait until Aunt Thea got there but you know kids! Can't follow directions and have minds of their own! Everyone is doing well and Big Brother Sean seems to be excited, so far. I'm sure there will be times when he wonders when Ben will go "home" but he'll make a great big brother.

Karen has another crop coming up in November so we are getting ready for that and the BIG crop in January. Stay tuned for more info. The theme for January is "Chinese New Year" and it will be the year of the Tiger so get ready to roar.

Stay tuned for more info!

Busy, busy, Busy

Wow, lots to do over the next few weeks! Weekend scrap at Eaglewood this weekend. On Halloween leave for Florida for my niece. Thanksgiving go to Grand Rapids to demo the Cricut! Come back then demo in Naperville. Then go to Wyoming MI for more demo time. I never even knew there was a Wyoming MI!!!

I will try and post some cool pics on things I've done with my cricut as soon as my web designer, (that's you, Corinna in case you didn't know, lol) teaches me, tho I may have to hire her!!

2 days in a row!

Today the weather is crappy but it is 50 degrees out. My friend Meslissa is going to culinary school and has to practice cooking and guess who gets to be a guinea pig??? Yup, she is cooking for Jeff and I and 6 of our friends. It smells so good in here! Usually each of us brings goodies so it's really hard for everyone not to bring something over. Kinda funny really.
Our little group has decided to do something together once a month. This month is our dinner. Wonder what will come up next??? I just realized that in 2 weeks I'll be leaving for Florida!!! I guess I'm a bit nervous about being in the delivery room but excited too. The only other times was when I had Erik and Brittany. I remember when they started to pull B out, I kept asking, "What is it? What is it?" and they said, "A head." Then the rest of her popped out and I had my girl. I wanted an older boy and younger sister and I thank God that that is exactly what I got.
Well, off to check out what those smells are!

I'm Back!!

Well, so much has happened in the past few months! My baby girl graduated from high school and is now a freshman at Western Illinois University. It's 4 hours away from home and took a while to get used to. Rosie, the dog took it hard too. She would lay down by the front door waiting for her to come home each night. I finally had to keep her in the bedroom with the door locked so she wouldn't wander all over the house looking for her. lol Brittany seems to be doing well. We went to see her for Parent's Weekend and had a blast. The Leathernecks lost to the Southern Illinois Salukis, whatever that is, but we had fun anyway. Erik is in his senior but not final year at Northern Illinois University majoring in English Education. He was in London over the summer studying at Oxford and took over 300 pictures. Scrapbookin' Mama only had 140 printed for a scrapbook.!!! lol
The other great think that happened is that I am now employed by Provo Craft!! I get to go to different Costco stores in the Midwest and demo the Cricut! It is so much fun! I get to meet all kinds of people. Some who have seen the infomercial late at night or during the football game. Others who have no clue what it is yet end up buying it after seeing what it is and how it works. Since it is a machine guys come up to it to watch the demos! I feel very lucky to be associated with a company that has such great products!
On the 31st I'll travel to Fort Myers, FL to be with my niece when she has her baby. Since my sister passed away in April of '08 I've become very close to my nieces and was very honored when she asked me to be with her. An experience I'll never forget.
So, I've updated my blog and need to contact my blog guru to jazz it up and get more pictures up on it!!

Have a great weekend!!
