Nov 21. Seriously??! I really am shaking my head in amazement at how quickly the days are zooming by. The pages of my daytimer are literally heating up as they turn quicker and quicker... and the saying "like sands in an hourglass" really hits home with me. I feel time is just going, going, going. And I am running, running, running, to try to keep up.
So in an effort to update this blog, here is Recap:Part 1, titled "Maritimers Rock!" I was fortunate enough to attend Scrapgala 2006 as a teacher in early November, and had a blast. The other teachers (Tena Sprenger, Carol Wingert, Christy Tomlinson and Debbie Hill) and I bonded like you wouldn't believe, and we were treated amazingly well by the people who ran Scrapgala - Debbie, Shirley and Amy of The Scrap Shack in NB, and their fabulous team of Git R Duns. I have never seen a team of people so nice, so willing to help, so uncomplaining, so "together." I didn't hear a single complaint all weekend - not from the students, not from the teachers, not one. And that, my friends, is frankly something that is super rare, especially at events like this. We were treated like royalty, even being taken out for dinner and a movie the last night (although we protested we didn't need to be "entertained." The poor Git R Duns - I believe a number of them fell asleep at the movie, they were so tired. I felt so humbled, so blessed and so spoiled to have met them all and to have had their help and friendship throughout the weekend. We all shed tears and exchanged hugs and email addresses. We're all hoping we get to go again next year. I think Christy is already planning what other songs she's going to serenade us with last year. And next time, I will take more than 5 photos.
Since returning, we've battled the flu (and won) (YAY), and I'm back to work, with orders, reorders, and preparing for CHA-W. Wendy at ScrapSupply emailed me to let me know a bunch of the new stamps sold out in less than 24 hours. How awesome is that. We are shipping as fast as we can and hope you can find the stamps you are looking for!
Coming soon: Newsletter. Wow, have we ever taken a hiatus from the newsletter. We are back with a vengeance though, so watch for it this week sometime. Here's a sneak peek of a little project that will be part of the newsletter.
