So many little time

Okay ready for some updates? I got a bunch of them. LOL

I've been working non-stop getting ready for CHA! Seriously...non-stop! My design team ROCKED their stuff!! I am so proud of them!!!
THank you to Gretchen, Norma, Danielle, Emily, Tanisha, Erin, and my extra helpers Pattie, Rocio, and krista! YOU GALS ROCK!

I will be gone from Saturday at 5am to Wednesday night!! I am so going to miss my family and friends! I'll be super busy so hopefully it goes by pretty fast!
As part of my payment for all my work, they are sending Erin and I to DISNEYLAND!! Sweet!!! I can't wait to go!!!

So here's a funny! Guess who will also be at CHA? Paris Hilton! Yes, the girl that doesn't wear underwear! Why? Because she has a new product line coming out! As much as I think she's a hootchie mama...I can't wait to see her line. I'll let you know what the scoop is when I get back! LOL

alright...non CHA stuff. My girlfriend Kristin Young is moving! FAR! I am sooo sad about it. I love me some Kristin so it's going to be hard not seeing her and having her work displayed in my store. LOVE YA GIRL!

Angel told me the other day that she had been thinking about what she wants to do with her life....she has decided that she wants to be a clothing designer. I'm excited about her future! She's going to have to work hard but I know she'll do good! She has a loving husband, two beautiful kids, and an entire family that will support her 100%!! You go girl!!

I want to tell my husband how much I love him!!! I don't say that very often. I don't really blog about him much...he's pretty boring (sorry honey but you know it's true!LOL)...but he's the best husband! He is an amazing dad and he takes care of me like noone else could ever do! I love you Paul with all my heart!

I am on a search for a new Garage Girl at our store!! I am getting a lot of submissions! I'm really excited about picking one OR two!! :)

Tonight, I spent a lot of time with my kiddos. They are so wonderful! I told them I was leaving for my trip and they were sad but at the same time they get so excited for me. They are so happy to see me be successful at something! I love them so much!
My whole family is so supportive! I'm a very lucky girl!

I want to tell my amazing friend Erin how much I love her!! She's so amazing! I am so lucky to have her as my friend!! We say I love you right before we get off the phone! I am so lucky to have her as my "special" friend!LOL

I also want to tell my girl Rocio...(the sister I never had) how much I love her too! We spend a lot of time together and we understand each other so well!! I love ya girl!

Happy birthday to my darling niece Ashleigh!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!!

Alrighty...I think that's everything! I told you I had a lot of updates. LOL
Suzy West grandsons are sooooo freaking ADORABLE!!!!

Heaven on earth!

Let me start by saying that I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this kid!! So everything that I type will be serious mushy stuff! I can't help it, this kid is the most precious thing on the planet!
Everyday that he see's me, it's like he hasn't seen me in years!! I am greeted with the sweetest and biggest smile and huge hugs!
Tanner was put on this earth to bring happiness to those around him! I believe that with all my heart!! I am the most lucky grandma to have him in my life and he has certainly brought me a lot of happiness!!
So on to the photos! I laugh everytime I think about it. We were at the store and Angel, Christian, and Tristan were inside with everyone. I asked Tanner if I could take his picture and his cute, "yes" with a smile made me so giddy so I grabbed him and a stool and we went outside.
This photo session was literally taken in ONE minute! NO JOKE!!
I asked him if he was ready...he said, "yes" and he smiled and laughed and when he was done...which was one minute later...he grabbed the stool and said, "let's go." he was done!!
I didn't know how cute they would turn out because I did them so they tell me.

He is seriously...heaven on earth!

another project...

I have been working really hard to create projects for our My Little Shoebox booth. I created this book using our new line, ENJOY LIFE. I love this line! It's full of color and fun images!!
Kaiser Crafts asked me if I would play with some of their different books and I was thrilled to get them!! The books are so much fun!!! This is their ME BOOK.
They have donated all the flowers, bling, and rings for my CHA class. I LOVE Kaiser Crafts!
My design team has been working NON-STOP to create all the projects for the booth and let me tell you...everything I have seen...I LOVE!!!! They rock! I wish I could give them big hugs but since they are all over the country, I'm sending them a big CYBER HUG!!! LOL

Tomorrow, I'll be working on some layouts using this line and then working on another line called, Turtles and trees.
I can't wait for CHA!! I am going with my pal Erin so you know it's going to be wild!!
Hope to see you there!!!
Hugs, Suzy West

I'm keeping the blog!

Hi there!! So I didn't know so many of you read my blog. Thank you for all the sweet emails and phone calls. I will keep the blog going. You guys just gotta keep me replying. LOL

So what's up with me?
I've been really busy! Don't you get bored hearing that from me? Seriously, I am. We've been working on creating my CHA class, kitting it, working with the dt, working at the store, meetings, desiging, family, parties, and more.

The family is doing well. Last night after our store meeting, I went home and went on a walk with the family and dog.
After that we played a game of monopoly of which our 7 year old beat us...Yes...she clobbered us.

Let's see...I'm teaching a class at CHA! I'm so excited about it. It's so cute! Check it out here:

okay, super busy. I will post more soon!
