worst blogger of the month award...

... goes to me! sorry ladies! i was in new hampshire for 5 days with the store to vend at an expo and when i got back i was soooooo all about being home and relaxing.

the show was in manchester, new hampshire and the town is awesome. great irish pubs run by actual irishmen, awesome radio station that sounded like my ipod on shuffle and really cool architecture. the show, engh! haha.

i did get some really awesome unmounted red rubber stamps there though, they are all monsters and funky looking animals and i LOVE them! i will be stamping them on everything ever pretty soon. i also got a really cute mini album kit which is a miracle that i found one that i liked that much. i'm a total snob about classes and kits. unless i absolutely love the finished product or will learn a technique that i will use over and over again i won't take it. in fact a lot of the time at ckc's and expos if i like the paper used, but not the finished product i'll just leave with the kit. yeah i know, i'm evil!

so just yesterday we finally got the store back to normal after the expo. it is super pretty with all the new product that we got right before the show and have room for after selling out of things at the show. we have a whole bam pop display, including single sheets of paper, we broke up the kits, and a nice big and pretty hambly corner with the transparencies and all the raddest rub-ons. plus, the lovely scenic route right next to the fun new ranger paint dabbers. everything looks so pretty and bright and new.

i might even get some scrapping done today. i haven't made anything in forever! i was really working to get everythign rearranged in the store and then all packed up for the show and then re-rearranged when we got back. i did make a hambly mini album in 25 minutes the night before we left for the show so that we would have a sample, haha. it has no journaling in it yet because i didn't want to risk doing all that work and then it getting swiped or something, but it came home safe and sound with us so journaling will happen someday. in the mean time i will post it in my SIS gallery.

i've also been working on a little project for a scrap room warming present for my best friend/ pretty much sister, marykate. she reads this sometimes so i'm so not ruing the surprise. but, when it's all done and the crazy frustration it's giving me is over i will post a piccie of the finished product! swear!

oooooh, also i just uncovered the pile of things that i was supposed to mail over the past few weeks, like amber's rak, a thank you package for mrs. nosa b, some goodies for aimee and a package for kristi. oooops! so, i've been buying more little tid bits to add to them to soften the blow of them being so late! sorry ladies! they are going to the post office tommorow, i promise!
