Taking this show on the road!

I am heading to Mississauga tomorrow to teach a class! I am so excited! I have all my cards designed, cut and bagged (Thanks Mom!). All my supplies are organized and packed...almost! The last of the wash is in...the family is coming too! It has been a long week with sick kids and fighting a cold myself. I was worried on Monday that I was not going to have enough time to get ready for my events this week and that was before everyone got sick then I ended up with the kids home sick on Tuesday and Wednesday, I sent them on Thursday (and looking back I shouldn't have)...Summer came home from school fevered, threw up, took a 4 hour nap, woke up and had some soup and crackers then went back to bed. Both the kids slept wonderful girlfriend called and offered to take Liam to school for me so I wouldn't have to take Summer out in the rain (you rock girlfriend!). Summer was feeling much better today...although there is still lots of that how you spell it?...from all three of us. I am amazed how much I was able to get done today!

I promise to share the cards when I get back. You are gonna love them!

So now I have to run and get the kiddies to out to my Mom's to borrow some Stampin' Write markers and an air matress.

Oh, before I go I wanted to share something exciting with you! No, I'm not pregnant....(well that's the first thing that usually pops into your head when someone says that!) : )

Remember the secret projects I was working on after Convention? I was asked back in July to be a Featured Guest Artist in our Stampin' Success magazine...our demonstrators magazine!!! I was asked to make four Christmas Projects for a two page article. They chose the Bells and Boughs stamp set for me from the Holiday Mini. I got the first of this stamp set hot off the presses or moulds I imagine. At Convention, I met up with Emily Meuller from the Home Office to get the stamp set. Then once I got home from Convention I was on a two week deadline to get my four projects ready and in the mail. Whew, what a deadline!!! But oh what an honor!!!  The November issue of Stampin' Success was online for demo's to check out on Tuesday....and even more exciting I received my actual magazine in the mail today!!! It's so awesome to see it in real life! Ok so I tooted my own horn a little...I'm excited and honored! I took pictures of those projects and I will share them with you next week as well. If you are coming to an event soon, I share the magazine article with you too!

Ok now I really gotta run! Have a great weekend! Stay healthy!
