Just the Scraps

So, I had a great time at the Ontario Expo. The Epson group is a blast to hang with. ;) The Sacramento Expo is right around the corner! Next week!

Kirstin and Katie went to Disneyland with their friends yesterday...(we have annual passes)...they left really early at 8:15am. Too early for me! So, they get there, hand over their passes, and WHOOPS! They have LAST year's passes and NOT the current ones. {tee hee!} Now, if I was the parents I would of been, "See ya!" {Well, not really, but I would of thought it!} Lucky for them, Mickey looked up their accounts and let them in....So, they are in the park, having fun and Katie goes to buy something using her Disney gift's supposed to have $37 on it...come to find out, it has 22 CENTS! By now, the parents they were with must of thought my kids were orphans. ;) Luckily I gave them extra cash....

Saturday we were at the best restaurant in the whole wide world...Olive Garden. Yummy! In walks Captain Jack Sparrow! Really!!! This guy had the facial hair, the dreadlocks the hat, the works!!! {Halloween Costume Party} So, I offer Katie five bucks if she goes and asks him for an autograph....




It was so stinkin' funny! I have it in my purse...Katie is so great. My only regret was that I didn't take a picture.

On a more serious note, thank you all so much for your emails regarding the Southern California fires. Thankfully, we weren't very close to any of them (although our schools were closed for two days due to the smoke). Unfortunately, some close family lost their home. To protect their privacy, I won't say who it was, but if you could say a prayer for everyone that lost their home, I would be grateful.

Lots going on at work...never a dull moment. It's funny...I never thought I would work, at least until the girls were older...but when something like this knocks on your door, I guess you have to answer. ;)

Hey, did you know we have new videos on the Creating Keepsakes website? New ones almost every week! Check it out! You can see the older videos in the sponsor section on their site, as well.

Well, I have to go put Katie to bed...she just finished her Jack-o-Lantern..she named it Billy Bob. Ahhh...never a dull moment...

Scrapbook Expo in Ontario, California

Hey everyone,

I'm going to be teaching at the Scrapbook Expo in Ontario...I'm looking for people to 'hang' with after hours! Hubby was supposed to go with me, but Kirstin's cheering at her school's Homecoming Game on Friday night.

So, anyone up for a tag-a-long friend? ;)

Let me know!

Various Ramblings...

So, school is in full swing...we had Open House this week for both girls. One night I was at the high school rushing through the halls to 'my' next class and the next night I was sitting in little chairs listening to the teacher talk about fifth grade science camp...

It's kind of weird to think I have a kid in high school and a kid in elementary school! It sounds so wrong! Actually, they are only four years apart, but since Kirstin is in 9th grade and Katie is in 5th, that's how it is...

I forgot to share what Ken bought me for my birthday. Sadly, it wasn't the white puppy and Brighton Puppy Bag that I wanted. :(

(Poor guy refuses to pick up after another animal!.....who can blame him!?!)

Anyway, here's a picture of one of my gifts....

It's the most adorable purple beach cruiser! It has a cute basket (ha...for my puppy!) and hibiscus flowers all over it. We don't go bike riding at the beach very often, but I guess we need to more often now! Imagine my surprise to see a bike when I honestly thought I was getting a puppy! Ha, the joke was on ME! {grin}
Well, I need to sign off. It's after midnight and I should be sleeping. Sometimes I find it so hard to turn off my brain. I'm always thinking (although most of the time it's not about anything important!)
Oh well, maybe I'll go catch a show on Tivo.
