Today at 5:15am

Hello My Friends!

Today at 5:15am I'll be picked up by the airport shuttle and taken to LAX.  (LA  Airport)  I'll then board a plane to Atlanta, GA.  THEN, I'll board a plane to Johannesburg, South Africa!!!!!  HUH?!?  WHAT?!?

Yep, little ol' me is going to South Africa.  Wowsers.

There, I'll be teaching over 600 scrapbookers/stampers/paper crafters techniques and tips about using Sizzix products and stamping!  Woo Hoo!

Every delegate (that's what they call the students) will also receive an EXCLUSIVE mini stamp set from The Stamps of Life.  ;)  Yep, I have connections! hahahaha......

I'll be gone for 10 days.  In between teaching in Johannesburg and Cape Town, I'll be going on a safari!  Wowsers times two!  ;)

Will you do me a favor?  Keep me in your prayers.  This is the longest I've ever been gone from home {and I'm by myself....no kids or Ken to keep me company....}  I'm a little concerned I'll get anxious while I'm gone.  ;)

I know Ken will do fine around the house and the office.  The girls are busy with school, so they probably won't even notice I'm gone.  I bet Cookie will notice though!  {I hope!}  ;)

I'll be thinking about you all and I'll try to update the blog with pictures if I can.  I've also scheduled a few videos to go live while I'm gone.

Big hugs! 
Stephanie
