Last week was one for the records and I am glad it is in the record books LOL! I worked 13 hours on Monday, came home and spent 2 days in bed on a heating pad. Back to work on Thursday. The most stressful part of the whole thing was worrying whether I would be able to make a four hour car trip with Tanya on Friday.
But Friday morning I packed up my heating pad and tylenol and off to Charlotte we went. Yippee!! We had been counting on this trip for a long time, and the pain of missing it would have been much worse than the physical pain in my back. Our first stop was the CK Convention and straight to the Scrap-Mart booth looking for the new Spellbinders Nestabilities. Alas, no luck but I did pick up a few deckled rectangles and placed an order with them for a few of the new ones. They did have samples of the new Grand nestabilities and they are very LARGE!
So we were spraying Glimmer Mists and there is a large fan near by.........I was afraid by the time we left I would look like a Smurf. We learned some great techniques and of course picked up a few new products.
This is a picture of Tanya and I showing off something we made. As you can see there is quite a bit of age difference between us. I rarely think about it.......we have such a good time sharing ideas, crafting, enabling...and when we are together we are talking constantly and having fun so what difference does age make?????
But as I was getting ready to leave for the trip my hubby says "This could be like a mother-daughter outing!!!!!" How old do you think I felt when he said that!
Saturday morning we went to Stampers Alley in Mooresville. We found this store the last time we went to the CK convention. This is where we met Jackie and found out that she is also on the Hero flickr site (shortwizard) and she has a blog Just Stamp It. Since last year I visit Jackie's blog a lot and it was great to see her again this year. This is a picture of Tanya and Jackie when we were getting ready to check out.
One more happy surprise I had last week was getting an honorable mention at the Play Date Cafe! I was very excited, it was the first time I had participated in their challenge. So thanks to everyone over there for that honor!
This is going to be a better week and will be making some cards with some of the new products we picked up, and will be visiting you on your blogs :) Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
