Okay, this is good. I have a friend who makes "BEAUTIFUL" jewelry and she is having an awesome giveaway going on right now until Christmas! You must check her website out. She makes everything by hand and let me tell you, it is of very good quality!!! Anyway, right now she is having this giveaway and it don't cost anything so get in on the action and who knows--you might be a winner!!! Patty
This pass weekend we held our "1st" retreat for our "Sweet & Sassy Scrappers" in Covington. We had a blast (of course)! We had a total of 9 ladies out of 10 so we feel like it was a total success... We had door prizes, played a game, and did a class using folders. Everyone worked on different things and all seem to get a lot done. At least, I did!!! lol I actually got more done this weekend then I do at the other events that I go to. Nicole quickly made sure that I knew it was because I am usually shopping and socializing...- NOT ME??? lol We have some awesome scrappers in our little group of scrappers. Thanks to Nicole & her family for opening there house up for us to stay and take over... As any scrapper knows, scrapping takes up a lot of space especially when you want to bring everything but the kitchen sink... Our weekend retreat ended on Sunday late afternoon and that night Nicole & I stayed up making a purse. They came out really cute. I didn't get a picture of hers yet because she wanted to add some ribbon but needed to go to the local scrapbook store to get the ribbon she wanted so hers will be a supprise! Our next event will be held again in Covington but will be at "Scrapfest". I hope that some of you plan on attending that event. Until then, have fun scrapping (I know I will!).....

Last night I received an email that one of my favorite local scrapbooking stores in town is closing! However, on a happier note--I did have a chance to go by the store today and take advantage of some of the great sales! In addition to all the purchases that I made today, I also purchase a double paper rack for my new scrapbook room... Now, I am busy setting my room up and trying to get organized. Anyway, I would just like to encourage everyone to support the local scrapbook stores in town. I am the 1st person who wants to get a sale or a good deal, but one thing that you cannot buy is the support and knowledge that you get from our scrapbook stores!!!!

This weekend, I did major cleaning and combine by 2 boys in 1 room. They still have lots of space and now I have a "scrapbook" room!!! YAY... I wanted them to have there own rooms but after telling them time and time again that if they didn't start keeping there rooms clean that I would put them together, I finally follow through with my words. It is really for the best becasue now our upstairs family room will now become the playroom/tv room. Now, all I have to do is get busy scrapping. This upcoming weekend, Butterfingers is hosting a "Scrappily Urgent Weekend Retreat" at her house in Covington for our Sweet & Sassy Scrappers Group. I can't wait to see everyone again. We will have no doubt a great time!
