a few links to share

Other Stuff
I think I’ve pretty much been sick for the past two weeks or so. I came back from San Antonio sick, got better, got sick again and went back to the doctor on Thursday… once again I am amongst the living… I just hope this second round of meds work better than the first round because I am really sick of being sick! Sinus infections suck!

Here’s to a wonderful Thanksgiving and staying healthy!

my lss is closing

I am sorry to say that my local scrapbook store, Maridawn's Scrapbooking, is closing. I can't even begin to explain how sad this makes me... for so many reasons. Not only is the store 5 minutes from my house and always full of new stuff (that I love to buy!) but the people there are my friends and have become a big part of my life. I don't even know what else to say.

I'm really going to miss it.

Roundup recap

This past weekend in San Antonio was incredible! Meeting the other Fiskateer "Nifty Fifty" at the Roundup was really an inspiring experience. It was so fun to put faces to names and really get to know people. My roommate was Maya Oren-Dahan (who is an absolute sweetheart!). I spent some time getting to know Lisa Pace, Jane Hasty, Patti Church, and Kimberly Brock as well – they are truly amazing women! I met a ton of others too but everything is starting to get jumbled in my head and I can’t seem to keep people straight! Meeting the lead Fiskateers was awesome too… Stephenie, Cheryl, and Holly are wonderful – I’m just sorry that May couldn’t have been there. It was such a well run and organized event… Heidi Grace from Heidi Grace Designs and Nancy from Cloud 9 where there too. I can’t begin to say enough good things about this event! On that note, my next task is to train 20 people that would like to become Fiskars Demonstrators. 

The only bad thing about my trip was that on Saturday I started feeling a bit stuffy… by Sunday I was very stuffy and not at all myself. The flight home didn’t help and come Monday morning, I was out! I was in bed all day and on Tuesday, Kevin (my wonderful husband who did a terrific job playing Mr. Mom!) took me to the doctor. I had a full blown, very nasty, sinus infection! yuck! Yesterday was the first day that I felt normal enough to leave the house. I think I did too much because today I am completely exhausted and have tossed my “to do” list in the trash!!!

Have a great weekend!
