What a Saturday we've had. First, I started off with a trip to Scrap Etc. for the Grand ReOpening. The new store is just awesome - and I didn't take pictures of it. WHAT? I didn't!! The store opened at 10 and at 9:30 there was a line outside. And I wasn't in it. Hmmm - wanna know why? Well, I was INSIDE. Wanna know why? Because there was a meeting of the NEW DESIGN TEAM before the store opened. So, what does that mean? Well, I MADE IT! WOO HOO! If I could only turn a cartwheel!! Very fun stuff. I'm way excited and the rest of the team is really great. Great girls (they are all so sweet) and great talent!! I'm so honored to be working with all of them. I cannot wait to make my first layouts for the store!! I made a few things last week just because I made a suggestion and Brittney said 'do it' so I did. But now the "Official" design team work starts. I can't wait.
So, after spending a good part of the day at the store - which was so fun - there were tons of people - I headed home. We have company coming over tomorrow so it was time to clean. Actually we just had some thing to clean out in the garage, some things we wanted to get rid of, etc - so we really did that. It looks tons better now. Most of the boxes are all empty and broken down - out of the way finally. Now, I need to tackle my guest room which is basically my laundry sorting, folding, and sitting-there-until-we-wear-it-again station. And the studio. It is such a mess. I've got to clean it out - seriously. So that's on my list for a little tonight and a ton tomorrow morning. I'm also hoping to make my favorite dessert - Apple Dumplings! YUM I picked three big apples off the tree in the back - I'm hoping they are more ripe now. If not, well, we may not have any dessert tomorrow. Oh well, they aren't coming for dessert anyway - but if they'd had this before, they would know it's well worth the visit!!
OH OH OH - we've pretty much finished Cole's new Buzz Lightyear/Toy Story room. I think we're going to try to make one more rocket, or a space ship for Cole's door. The first one was really too big for the door - I got carried away I guess. Cole really wants one on his door - so I need to try. And I want to do something fun with the Little Green Army Men. We just picked up two bags the other day - one for him to play with and one for my to come up with something fun with - so if you have any suggestions - let me know!!
Ok - I've finished eating my dinner/blogging/checking mail - so back to cleaning up. The weekends are never long enough! But hey - school is back in! WOO HOO - some time to myself (no offense to Cole, I'm pretty sure he even gets sick of me sometimes). Oh and we have Nim's Island to watch tonight.
