Spring is coming.....

Well the spring Idea book that is:)
Sorry to get your hopes and my hopes up I am already tired of Winter and we have only been in winter for 8 days officially, I do not like winter you will probably find out in the future posts how much I really dont like it but enough of me venting on to the exciting stuff!

CTMH never ceases to amaze me in what they come up with each time a new book is released I think this is it they can not get any better than this and the next book comes out and I love it more than the prior! I just LOVE CTMH and all their products I have found myself telling everyone I know about close to my heart and my new business and passion. Some people look at me like I have just lost my mind and others are very interested in learning more.

The new idea book goes live on Jan 1st 2010 wow just 4 days to go.... I cant wait here is a picture of the front of the book check back each day until the 1st for more sneak peaks!

Happy Stamping!

My first gathering!

Wow, I can not believe I am actually selling my favorite stamping and scrapbook products! I am excited and nervous, anxious and happy all at one time! My first gathering is scheduled for Saturday December 19th, everything was great until they called for S*N*O*W yeah I said the little 4 letter word that gets me all worked up:( If you know me you know that I do not do snow I dont like it, I do not go out in it, I do not want to even watch it falling to the ground it just makes me a little nauseous LOL! Well at least I do not have to go far right, about 2 or 3 miles but what about everyone else I have not even got an official head count people keep saying I think I am coming, so I guess we shall see! I hope I have a decent turn out I am excited to show people my new business venture:) I will post pictures of the projects we will be doing later if my camera will work!

Black Friday

I never understood why they call the day after Thanksgiving Black Friday....
...When I began working Retail 6 years ago I realize Black Friday is the nicest way to put the nightmare that is Black Friday!

I never had any really major problems when I worked at the Dept. store at the mall my first year I found it to be so comical 2 grown women arguing and fighting over a 10.00 sweater "It is mine I had it first"..."no I am so sorry you are sadly mistaken that sweater is MINE" Yelling and holding up the line Had to call security and all and in the end they both got a sweater.

I really don't need anything bad enough to wait in a 3 hour line( happened last year) or fight someone over it, I would give the product to the other person it is just not worth it to me.

Do not get me wrong I LOVE shopping black Friday I don't know if it is the thrill of getting up early and waiting to get in the mall I really don't go shopping with an item in my mind that if I do not get it the world is going to end I am pretty flexible.

This year I will be shopping from 4AM-7AM and then heading to Hobby Lobby to work until 4 PM then I think it would be safe to say I will be calling it a day!

I actually typed this up on Thanksgiving day so I will be back later with all the details of my shopping trip and working trip
