it's a disaster in here…

it's a disaster in here…

Ok, going through all the Halloween photos was SOOOO funny! I mean, when we did the summer (water) photo contest… the photos were cute and it was fun to look at, but these were so FUNNY! It was a blast to see them. there are thousands that were submitted, so I can’t really post them all,  but as I mentioned there will be 10 winners. I think I have them all narrowed down… so in the next day or 2, you need to check back and vote for  your favorite! And by popular vote, you will all pick the overall winner! I have some awesome ones to show you! I decided to make up some categories… like ‘scariest’ and ‘cutest’ and ‘best theme’ etc… so stay tuned!
It’s a little crazy around here. As I mentioned, my mom and dad were here, and we had so much fun. I officially took 2 days off work to spend quality time with them… that was really nice.  I shopped with my mom, and scrapbooked with my dad (and we are talking copper and liver of sulfer- he doesn’t mess around. My dad is also my accountant… so there was some tax conversations (ugh)…and get this, my mom did my laundry. What a gift. Thanks mom! Seriously…
They left Tuesday afternoon, and we had a really fun store visit that night in anthem- it was at “scrapbooks to remember”… they had a great turnout! So that was cool. Speaking of store tours- we will be at “Lucky 15” next week, Tuesday I believe. It’s a cute store…come check it out. 7pm.
Wed morning Janet Hopkins came in town to work on a whole list of stuff that we have to be creative about. She is our education coordinator and lives in Frisco, TX. So we have been brainstorming, and scrapbooking mostly. A serious mess has taken place… but so fun and we have been pretty productive. We are designing the classes for 2007, working on samples for the new products for the winter CHA. It’s so much fun to have *NEW* stuff to work with! We are putting together a little idea book (something that everyone in my big picture scrapbook class will get with their first inspiration shipment!) we are compiling about 100 scrapbook pages. It’s been fun to work on! this is the final push.
So wish us creative LUCK!

(check out this bin of stuff… i found it in emily’s garage…(thought you’d get a chuckle out of that one franni)
Quincy loves to write on  my big calendar board… and i like to post layouts there as we complete them. i think we are up to 21 layouts! (yahoo for us!)

    WOW. Looks like my kitchen when I’m scrapbooking. Not a little spot of kitchen counter in sight! LOL!! The good thing is at least you guys are being productive, right?
    WOHOO!! I was hoping that the idea book for BPS would be more than 5-10 pages. You just made my day! Can’t wait to see it!!

    Someone else beat me to asking for the bin of stuff but honestly, let’s call it a mini garage sale, shove it in a box, send it COD or I will pay ahead for the shipping. That would be a really nice thing to do 🙂 Tee hee.

    Glad you got to spend some quality time with your parents…so important to do that! You never know how long they will be with us and don’t ever take that for granted (I lost my dad 14 years ago on Tuesday). However, I did want to ad that I was so totally drooling over the bin in the garage filled with glorious HS products!!!!! How fun that would be to rifle through that black box of scrap-candy! LOL!
