Bad Blogger.....

I know, really it's not much of a shock to you. I am a baaaad blogger! Over the last few weeks, I've had oodles of things going on and haven't taken the time to sit down and keep everyone appropriately updated.

So much has been going on - and so much is on the horizon! I think I'll be running full speed all the way to my birthday in January. {Note to self: schedule pampering massage for your birthday.}

It's been a VERY long week. I'm still struggling with the sicky thing. It's definitely not been pleasureful - but it's been survivable. Mucinex is really a GREAT thing (and the Walmart brand is less than half the price and does the job just dandily!). Fourth quarter has started at work, which means that my life basically revolves around tax deadlines. From what I understand, it's not unusual to work 20+ hours of overtime per week November - December. Ohhh what fun it's going to be.... :)

I'm still unpacking from Silver Bella. I have glitter EVERYWHERE. I don't know what it the TSA thought it was but every single little tiny bag (they're like 2"x3" bags - if that!) of glitter was opened. EVERY bag. Most of the bags were NOT reclosed, so as a result every stitch of everything that was packed in a suitcase is sparkly. Not that I'm complaining of course. I'm sure Steve will get worried when he finds glitter in his drawers though. :) (By the way, if you're a glitter addict like myself, be sure to check out an incredible store: Splinters and Rags. She has an awesome selection, incredible customer service, and high quality glass glitter. I've ordered from her and am VERY pleased!)

Yesterday the team at Maya Road announced the 13 finalists for the 2007 Design Team Search. It's been such a joy and a pleasure to see so many incredible projects that so many artists have entered. I haven't seen the actual entries (thankfully), but from what I've seen on various boards, I know the competition must have been incredibly stiff. I've been inspired many times over. It would be wonderful if Deb and Caroline could accept all of the artists who applied, but it's just not feasible. They have been kind and generous enough though to send each artist a little something in the mail for entering. How fantastic! I don't know about the other Design Team members, but I'm on pins and needles waiting for next week to get here just so I can find out who the 6 new members of our team will be!

Tonight I'm going over to the Lewisville Scrapbook Warehouse to visit with some of my scrapping friends. Amazingly enough, i'm actually packed and ready to go. I know - shocker! It was such a hard thing to accomplish - especially since I had everything packed for last weekend! :) I'm planning to complete one of the class kits I purchased last weekend from the instructors of the classes I didn't get to attend. It's one of Carolyn Peeler's classes. Both were absolutely adorable. I can't wait until all of the projects are done - my house isn't going to know what hit it!
