We told our hubbies that on the 10th year we want the cruise!
This year, simply due to the fact that the three of us couldn't find a weekend that we were all free AND there was a scrapping retreat available so....
My hubby and the two big kids are in Lake Placid for a long weekend and mygals are here! My littlest guy heads to bed at 7ish so, they arrived last night after bed time and we scrapped until 4:30...yep, AM! Got about an hour and a half of sleep before he was up for breakfast.
My mom just came and snuggled him up and he is headed to her house until after dinner. We will make a trip to the Flower & Craft Warehouse and go out to lunch on our well-deserved afternoon break . F&CW is, by far, one of my favorite places in the world, second only to the beach...and, yes, for those of you who read my previous post about the "URGE"...it happens EVERY TIME I walk in the door of this place alone! Just goes to show you how much I love it there!
So, if anyone wants to see what I accomplished, I will post some pictures tomorrow...if my sleepy fingers have enough energy to press the button on the camera as I doubt we will sleep AT ALL tonight. We have movies, wine and lots of yummy snacks!
We will most likely scrap together another time this year since our hubbies got out of the EZ GIFT and no money was spent. I doubt we will be as productive this weekend because we have a TV, fridge, etc involved. Usually it is about 300 women in a banquet hall all set up on 6' office tables. We start scrapbooking Friday afternoon and call it quits Sunday morning. We usually don't sleep more than 2-3 hours the WHOLE FRIPPIN' WEEKEND! I usually complete an entire album.
The other benefit is that when we go on these retreats, we have 5-6 Creative Memories consultants at our disposal. They all have their tools/templates/sizzix machines, etc. available for us to use, not to mention all of their inventory. Working on a beach page and need beach stickers? Take ten steps to the left and ya hit pay dirt! Every stinkin' beach sticker you ever imagined at your fingertips...it is a beautiful thing! And they feed us...all day!
I am headed to the shower to refresh and then it's 'nose to the paper cutter' for me. See ya when I come up for air!
Thanks to those of you who pumped up my self-esteem about my Macy-Sue character. I never thought of it before but what a way to make sure I nail the market with my story line...take it to the 'market' (you!) and ask what you want and what it should look like.
So, without further ado...the NEW Macy-Sue...I think...lemme know what YOU think, please!
