If the first anniversary is paper....

the 2nd is cotton

the 3rd is leather

the 4th is linen

and the 5th is wood,

What is the 6th???

At our house, it's the GUITAR HERO anniversary!!!

Yep, that's right. Call me crazy, but I've been fiending for this game ever since I played it while I was working at a doctor's office one day. I was with a rep for a lunch and the doctor asked us to come back to his private office to play guitar hero. The challenge was on!!!

Trust me, if you play this game, you will be addicted and I don't even particularly care for video games. Anyway, by the time the weekend was over, I had rocked "Free Bird" and am now a true hero (at the medium level anyway!).

Even more exciting news is the stuff I scrapped with this weekend for the new kit club that will launch on June 14. Can't wait to tell you the name of it, but until then, I can tell you I'm in cahoots with Scarlet on this one and we have some amazing designers lined up! More on this later.....

Auction to Benefit Caroline

A friend of mine, Alicia Story, has a close friend whose daughter, Caroline, was diagnosed with cancer. A group of scrappers have made cards to auction on eBay to help with the bills. Here is the link if you'd like to help out! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=270122472621

This Weekend

On Friday, Greg and I went to his mom's retirement party. She taught special ed for 27 years (I think) at Bristow Elementary. We are so proud of how many years she dedicated to teaching, so here's some pics of the occasion.

My friend Amber stayed with us Thurs, Fri, and Sat because she had a training in town, which was definitely fun! On Saturday, her fiance, Trevor came up from Nashville and they bought the board game "Battle of the Sexes." (By the way, check out Trevor's band "The Farewell Drifters" if you like bluegrass - http://www.thefarewelldrifters.com He's the 2nd one from the right with the khaki pants). Anyway, back to the board game. The guys kept complaining that our questions were easier than theirs, but we still loved the taste of victory! (Don't you just love these game pieces?)

I also had time to create this and 3 other Halloween things for upcoming calls. Can't show you yet!

Oh, and I almost forgot, but Scarlet came over and we worked on something exciting! I wish I could tell you all about it, but pretty soon I will. Can't wait til then!

Okay, so here's to catching up...

Sorry it's been so long, I really need to get better at this blogging thing. The last 2 weeks have been a blur. I've been on three different trips in a matter of 10 days. First, my grandfather in TX passed away, well, not my grandfather genetically speaking. He and Bertie took care of me when I was a baby and we formed a grandfather-granddaughter relationship throughout the years. I'd definitely say I'm closer to them than my real blood-relatives. He just turned 93 in April and led a wonderful life. Best of all, he was a Christian, but, second best, he was a wonderful gardener. The LO to the right was part of my HOF entry and it was in his honor that I posted it. In the picture below is me, Bertie, and Amber, my sis.

So, from Kentucky to Texas, then from Texas to Nevada for a DM leadership meeting in Lake Tahoe. Okay, I really didn't pack for this as you can see in the pics. It was snowing, and silly me, I thought it was warmer in Nevada than Kentucky this time of year. I just didn't factor in the elevation -- 8000 ft above sea level!!! I went sand-buggying for the first time. Only 2 words to say about that: EXPENSIVE and DIRTY. (even in places you didn't think dirt could find. TMI?)

Then, back closer to home to CKC Nashville on Friday. Whew, my plane was late, so I missed shopping on Friday, but made it to the crop, met the ever so fabulous Jessica Sprague, and shopped with Scarlet on Saturday. Sorry I don't have any pictures. I only took 2 the entire time I was there and they were both horrible. Just picture in your mind a convention center, concrete floors, booths, and lots of middle-aged women bustling around. Got it? That was what I didn't take pictures of.
So, that's it for catch up time. Talk to ya later.

So, I've been gone for awhile...long time since my last post. My grandfather passed away last week and so I spent some time in TX with my grandmother. It was so good to be there for her during that time, but then I had to rush away to a business meeting in Lake Tahoe this week, then I'll be in Nashville at CKC on Friday and Saturday. 3 trips in 10 days, am I crazy or what? I'll be sure to post lot of pics once I get back and can download them on my home computer.
