Did someone say, "Let's Go?"

Hello, My Friends!

I'm home for a brief minute...I'm off to New Hampshire on Wednesday night.....  I think I'm getting caught up on everything I need to do around here....(Yeah, right!)

This trip to NH marks my SEVENTH trip in SEVEN weeks!

Let's see.....
Northern CA
Grapvine, TX
St. Louis, MO
Calgary, Canada
Boston (Yikes, that was a difficult trip...)  :(
and now....New Hampshire

Then, I get a whole week off from travel!  Wowsers!  What shall I do?!?!?  ;)

After my week off, I'm headed to the Great Lakes Mega Meet!  Woo Hoo!

I'm often asked, how on earth I survive this much travel.  Well, here are a few reasons I can do it....

1.  I LOVE meeting up with my FRIENDS!  I get to see so many of you when I travel.  THAT makes it SO worth it!  :)
2.  I LOVE what I do!  This isn't a job....it's such a blessing that I get to share my love of stamping and die cutting with you!
3.  I SLEEP as soon as they turn the airplane's engines on!  I mean I go STRAIGHT to sleep!  Many times I wake up mid flight thinking we haven't taken off yet!  ;)
4.  I have an AMAZING team at the office that take care of the shipping, emails, class kits, etc.  Without my TEAM, I couldn't do this!
5.  I have an AMAZING web designer that keeps track of each release on the website.
6.  I'm blessed with an amazing husband that supports me.  Ken is truly amazing to put up with me!  ;)
7.  My daughters are wonderful as well!  They sometimes travel with me to help!
8.  And whenever I get tired, discouraged or down, my Heavenly Father picks me up, dusts me off and encourages me to continue.  I give all GLORY to Him.  If you see me shine, it's only because HE gives me the ability.  Through Him, I find rest.

And now, here's an oldie but goodie video on how I sleep....THIS is how I sleep on planes.....

Happy Stamping!

You are just hilarious and I think you should introduce your husband to the world. You could have a contest "Best Guy Behind the Scenes" and the prize could be a gift card for either a black sheet or a pair of flannel pants. I live in Washington State and I wear flannel pants all day long! I bet you're just a leeetle bit envious that I can wear my flannel ALL DAY long if I want to. Love your show. Plus you have a big gulp cup and so do I! I have several!!

My husband works overnights and sleeps during the day..we have black out curtains in our bedroom and he does the beanie "trick" too... this way if I forget and flip on the bedroom light it won't disturb him..and we are like you too...t-shirt and flannel pj bottoms or shorts (since we are in Texas)

Bottom or sweats or short depending the weather no jeans your right you can't sit comfy in them. God bless you and keep you safe as you travel where ever God has you go.
