Man, I am a Slacker (in more ways than one!)

Yes, I am a slacker.
A lazy slacker.

Some of the slacking can easily be blamed on the inconsistent phone situation in my new apartment, you just never know when it may or may not work. Some of my slacking can easily be blamed n my boss for giving me a pile of work to do this week, I only took off one day, gosh! And some of it is just plain 'ol laziness.

I had a FABULOUS time with Greta and Elizabeth last weekend at CHA. I was worried about them coming, but it all turned out way better than I imagined. I can't wait to see them again. They are like your best friends you just met.

I also saw my pal Carol (I don't see her nearly enough) and April (and her mom, love her!). Saw Candace, working the Mimi booth, she is rockin' it with Thermoweb these days, very cool. Saw Michelle Hill, I met her back at in September at Scrapfest, surprised she remembered me and even noticed my hair was way darker. She is so super sweet and genuinely nice, I love that.
Honestly, I didn't see any products that really knocked my socks off. The 7 Gyspies booth was amazing, I just love their stuff! I hope to incorporate some of their stuff into some classes this fall. Around the Block is coming out with some way cool papers, love the colors. All in all though, there was nothing that was...Wow! I saw a lot of bling, everywhere. Words, flowers, frames, papers....all bling!! Guess that is a new trend.

I met the cutest girl from Pebbles Inc, Trianna, hopefully I can get some direction from her about my product ideas. I am always coming up with these, just don't know what to do with them!

I am working on some scrapbooking this weekend, for sure. I got so many freebies last weekend, I have been dying to do something with them, they are taunting me.

Also, there are only a few days left to sign up for the Birthday Card Swap, this is so low key and is fun to see everyone else's style. I need to get my butt in gear and send out the emails to remind everyone this weekend, as well as my August Newsletter. Plus, samples for the August classes, I need to order some new double sided paper.

Well, at least with the unbearable heat approaching, I can take shelter inside with my trusty air conditioners and just catch up on my scrapbooking. That is...after I go to the laundromat tonight and catch up on the clothes. Hopefully I can sweat off some pounds while I am at it.

Alright, back to work....ugh!

(ps. no pictures from the wild weekend, because the girls took all the photos with the killer cameras and I didn't really have to, for the first time ever. Check out their cool blogs for some awesome photos!!)

Wow! I made your blog!!! Too cool. Thanks for stopping by to say Hi. It was good to see you. I keep looking for you guys when I walk past with Riley, but I doubt I'll see you since your trying to stay away from the crazy neighbor. ;)
