I am off to Ashland for the ROUTE 5 Scrapbook event. Fourteen hours of scrappin' fun !!!
Started yesterday with a trip to the 4 scrapbook stores sponsoring the event. Ending at my home store "No Bare Pages". Saw lots of familiar faces. Terri and Shirley from Albany came down , met them on the Scrapbook Cruise Robin and I took last year.
Well lots to do to get my stuff ready and meet Brooke & Amber for Scones and coffee ( We carpooled to the different stores) Made a cute project at each of the stores and received a raffle ticket, going to have prizes galore !! Classes with Karen Russell and Courtney DeLaura.
And YES I am surprized that I HAVE NO SCRAPBOOK MUG !!!! Will have to fix that ASAP !!!!!
Hey, I was wrong about who the vinyl letters were from on Sheila's blog. It is her sister Cindy's new business ! It is still "in the works" But here is Cindy's phone number 971-221-5883. I will keep you informed as to when and how you can order from her !!!
Was home yesterday on my day off and decided to catch up on a little TV while I CLEANED house.
Well to my surprise it was the shows 20th Anniversary, no I have not watched it that long, but got started while pregnant with Robin 17 years ago ! Yikes I didn't realize I had watched it soooooo long.
Well come on now, who else out there has these mugs?? You know who you are.....Be proud !!!!! MUG COLLECTORS UNITE !!!
PS Amber, Mona & Tammy were the first to respond to "get to know me" Thanks , fun stuff !
PSS have you seen the NEW mug on 'The View"???? OH I Sooooooo want that, went so far as to "put it in my shopping cart" then I found another mug I soooo want too !! From "Grey's Anatomy" it is a mug that turns from white to Black when hot to cold and says "Dr McDreamy" on one and "Dr McSteamy" on the other !!! Does it get any better than that? Do I need another MUG? Heck Yes. So if any of you are wondering what to get me for "CHRISTMAS" ??? (MY Family, I mean)
I just want to have a moment of silence to remember those effected by the tragedy that happened on September 11, I remember watching something unfold on TV and not being able to wrap my mind around it. Then feeling a panic because I had just sent Robin off to school on the bus and what else could happen......
Had to throw in Rob's first day of school (11th grade) picture.
OK now here is my mug from American West Steamboat Co.
September 12,2004 Mom and I were flying to Seattle to spend the night before we were flown to Sitka Alaska for the start of our 12 day cruise of the inside passage. Andy had gotten his job with them in March 2004, spent the summer in Alaska and we were on the the last trip thru Alaska down to Seattle. The ship was relocating back to the Columbia River. We got the most unbelievable "Family discount" we couldn't afford not to take the trip !! It was the trip of a lifetime, just wish dad had been alive to go with us, he had always wanted to see Alaska, I do feel like he was with us in spirit !! Andy spent three seasons working on Empress of the North even fitting in the 5 months for Norwegian's Pride of Hawaii. American West was bought out by Majestic the first of this year and Andy went to work for the Credit Union in Portland. But rumor has it he is thinking of applying for a position on one of the ships that run the Mississippi River....... Do I see a trip in my future????
54 Years ago on April 11th, I was born....
That makes me a "middle aged" woman....
I am facing many changes this year...
Looking forward to what the future holds.
Have two wonderful sons, Andy & Robin.
Welcome to my life.....
Welcome to my life.
