OK, so I am trying the NEW Typepad, and I hope I don't mess it up! Time will tell.
When I went to Convention I met so many people that read my blog, and I was so tickled when they would say hi. One girl asked me if Lisa Nichols was my BFF, and I had to say no that my BFF did not come to Convention, she will hopefully, crossing my fingers, and toes, and eyes, and knees, and arms be coming to Leadership in January. Jeff is hoping she does too. I wonder if her cutie patootie hubby would come, then the guys could do something while us gals are at Leadership. Hmmmmm…..what you say Steve?
Anyway one other time MAMMa and I were walking over from our hotel and Kim said "is this MAMMa?" and I was like "Yes it is!" How fun eh?
So MAMMa brought me some sweet, and I mean sugary sweet gifts for me, and here they are:
Here is the whole thing, look at this cute box filled with yummy goodness, and it has my initial on it and everything.
In the back is a cute punch book, and a very cool Top Note die brag book.
Let's look at them a little closer, shall we…
MAMMa punched all the punches we sell and made this awesome book for me, this makes finding the stamp sets that go with each punch a breeze, I will keep this at my table.
Here is the Top Note Die brag book, neat eh? I oughta put MAMMa's pic in there, then I can brag about her AND show her picture too.
Here is the box of sweets with the lid off, how cool eh? With all its little compartments.
The center compartment holds some cool tags, and the sides hold delicious chocolate.
In fact there are these new fancy M&M's and they matched the Nouvea Chic DSP perfectly. I am already on my second bag of them…the first one that came with my gift at convention, well they didnt make it home, I had them eaten in Salt Lake City.
Here they are spread out a bit. The fancy M&M's are in a little box made with acetate, the circles at the bottom are mints covered with the scallop punch, and the little squares are girahdelli chocolates…ummmm….I did by accident eat the girahdelli chocolates carefully, and then put the empty packages back in…I mean I hate to waste or should that be waist chocolate.
So wasn't that the sweetest thing that MAMMa did? I love her, and am blessed she is part of my life.
Today I was designing some of the Make n Takes for our September to Remember event, too fun. Tomorrow though I need to put it aside and design the cards for my Technique Lovers Club (TLC) class 4 for September it is only a few weeks away. I want the girls that are coming to the TLC Class 3 this weekend to see what they will do at the next class, so they will know if they want to sign up or not. I will share those another day.
I am headed to beddie bye, gotta get up bright and early.
Have a super Friday, and thanks for stopping in!
