It's been a LONG time coming!!!

It has been WAY tooo long since my last post, but happy to report that all is good. I have done some great things since my last post. The first and foremost being waking up each day...Thank you Lord!!

I have done some creating, but as usual I haven't taken any pixs to update my slide show. Hopefully I can add that to my "short" to do list. I had a chance to dine "upscale" with hubs, along with other couples in Midtown Atlanta at Dolce (no Gabana :>} ). That was an awesome experience.

I was able to go a Creating Keepsake Convention in Nashville for 3 days. The experience was GREAT! I totally enjoyed my classes but could have done without the crops. I went to the Preview crop on Thurs. that was a waste, Friday crop was okay because of the vendor deals that they offer after the vendor floor closes, Saturday crop was another waste of time. The only downfall, was the venue. The Gaylord Opryland convention ctr. is beautiful but expensive as hell. We didn't stay there, but the parking is off the chain at $18per day with no in/out privledges...WTH?!?!? If you get a chance to go to a CKC, make sure to take a class with the Button Farm and/or Studio Calico! I LOVED every class I took (6 of them)and got great product too.

I have been living vicarously through a buddy of mine who is attending Scrapfest in MN right now. I so plan on going next year. She is having a blast and I am happy for her and her travel pals. They have been interacting with industry bigwigs and getting the inside info.. I am SO saving my coins for next year.

So here is my update. I will try to do better...hopefully. PEACE!!

Why do you say the crops were a waste of time?

I've been to crops where there is HIGH energy and nice giveaways and/or fun (just because) games all through out the crop. There was little to NO ENERGY and just nothing planned out. like I said, Friday was the day to go because of the great deals the vendors!
