You've gotta have some fun!! (picture heavy)

I' home for the next few weeks...I love being with my family and friends so I've planned a lot of fun things but I plan on being at home too. I just got home from spending a day in Sacramento with Gina. Had a lot of fun!!! Started making this canvas. This is a sneak peak.

I'm lucky to go to stores that know how crazy and wild I am and play along with me. I'm certainly not quiet...microphones not needed. LOL

I wanted to post some fun pictures from my last two trips. I visited Scrapbooks with Treasured Memories and Ever After Scrapbooks. Both stores are great!!! It was my first time at TM in Louisiana. Had a blast!! You already know how much I love the girls at EA! Been there many times.

Here are a few from both stores.

These pictures are three of my favorite from TM!!! OMG Can you tell how much fun we had? LOL We totally laughed a lot!!!

This picture was taken at Lazy Lucy!! Had fun with these girls!!!

This next picture were from Ever After Scrapbooks. We had a trunk show, demo day, and classes!

Loved my night with all the girls for Debi's birthday!! Wish Janelly was in this picture!

This is just a fun picture I took after teaching a class at EA. Love knowing that my students got to play!! this cart that I bought. It holds so much!! As you can see with my stash of sprays and paints.

Thanks for letting me share my pictures!!! I'm excited about the next two stores that I'm teaching at.
Stamping Details (Poway, Ca)--2nd weekend in April

I had the great pleasure of teaching at one of my favorite scrapbook stores, Ever After Scrapbooks over the weekend. It was so much fun hanging out with everyone!!! So many made my trip memorable...I know you know who you are!! :)
Today I wanted to post about an AMAZING and SELFLESS individual that came to my class. Her name is Jennifer Lundy! Since I met her, I've seen a lot of selfless acts from this gal. We met in Los Angeles when another friend invited me to be part of a Cricut infomercial.  It's a good thing I went or I would have never met this wonderful person. We spent SIX hours together pretending to be friends scrapping together for this recording....little did we know that we would REALLY TRULY become buddies!!

That's me cheezing like crazy! Jennifer is the gal with the blonde hair. You can't see her face.
The reason why I'm doing this blog post is because I'm so impressed by all this gal does. She is the mom of four beautiful kids. Three of her kids have autism. She has done so much to see her children succeed. She drives almost 200 miles a day to take them to school!! That's amazing!!! They donate a lot of hours to help other kids with autism as well!

We were talking about her children and I was impressed when her daughter told her she didn't like the word dissability. She prefers DIFFerability!! I love it!!!
Here is her definition of it.
I want to let her know how much I love her and appreciate the examples she has shown me.  She's an amazing mom, wife, and friend! I feel so lucky to have her in my life!!

Obsessed...with the Jodi Arias case!

I think I have an addictive personality! LOL Once I get involved with something or find something that I like...I have to have more of it. Sheesh! I think I need a life! LOL
I've watched big trials before...
*OJ Simpson...watched and even visited the house of his ex-wife that he MY defense...I was on a vacation and we got lost...and followed a whole bunch of cars down a street because of a detour...we ended up stopping when we saw all the cars and people. It was his wife's house and "the tape" was surrounding the whole area. It was crazy! I have pictures that I scrapped a long time ago.
*Scott Peterson...that was such a sad case. I got involved because I had a friend that knew Lacey and said she was such a good person. When I found out she was very pregnant I couldn't believe it.
*Casey Anthony...This case upset me so much!! The thought that anyone could hurt an innocent child all so she could party with friends...omg!! awful!
Out of these three cases...only one was convicted and that was just gross to me!
This new case with Jodi Arias is soooo beyond awful! What she did to this guy is GROSS!!
So I've been watching everyday that it's on. I watch as I wash dishes, kit my classes, and even in the shower! LOL
I'm in southern Ca getting ready to teach at Ever After Scrapbooks!! While I was going through security at the airport guess what I was doing?

My FAVORITE thing about the case is chatting on facebook with friends (new and old). I start a daily Jodi Arias case. I want to thank Gina, Carol, Kim, Betty, Tori, and everyone else that comes in to join in on the daily chat!!! It's so fun!!!! The word I use a lot on there is "BAM!" LOL I say it every time something good happens! LOL Yes, I have issues. LOL
Okay so now that you know my new crazy....if you are watching the case...what do you think? What are your thoughts? Would love to hear!!

A birthday, some pages, and fun!

Today is a great day!!! I woke up thinking about my beautiful baby girl who's celebrating a birthday!!! I can't believe it was 24 years ago that she came into this world and completely changed our lives. I love you my sweetness!

I'm looking forward to celebrating with her today.
Yesterday, I spent the day at an awesome crop with a lot of really cool people!!! I got to see the girls that I spent last weekend with. It was so great to spend the day with Gina again! We had so much fun! There was a masssage therapist and we treated each other two massages. LOL

I completed three projects. I forgot to take pictures of one because it was late but here are some pictures of the other two. I made it using Prima products that the company sent me. I also used Clearsnap, therm-o-web, Helmars, Sakura, May Arts, Crafters Workshop, Helmars, and more!!

So I'm now off to spend the day with my girl!!! Have a fabulous Sunday everyone!!!
