Thanks Amy, Jenny, Jen and Barb for listening and being able to sit and keep my mind occupied last night. I just wish I had brought some scrapbooking things.
Speaking of... I still have some spots available for my Stampin' in your Scrapbook class tomorrow night... 6:30 - 8:00. Let me know if you're interested.
Have a good day!

Check out the frre give away on the blog above. I love FREE stuff, don't you? This is a new paper company. Good luck!
Kayla and I then headed to Lehigh Valley Mall looking for a Formal Dress for her end of the year Dance. We didn't find any. She is going to borrow one from Courtney which is what I told her to do from the very beginning. Kids... they never listen.
Then... was the dreaded phone call. My sister called to tell me she called the squad to come take my mom to the hospital. My mom has not been feeling well all week with a cold. When my sister went in to check on her she wasn't herself and wasn't responding to her questions. So she became concerned and called the squad. I've been going back and forth on the phone for the past 3 hours. They can't figure out what is wrong with her other then she has a high fever and she was dehydrated. I can't really sleep, I'm trying to figure out if I should try to get a flight to Florida tomorrow. Maybe I'll just wait to see how her night goes.
I am thankful for my friend Karen and Amanda for being there for me tonight. Say a little prayer again for mom to bounce through this... yet another bump in the road.

I am a bad blogger…
I am so into reading everyone’s, I forget to update mine.
It’s been almost 2 weeks. Well, I’ve been very busy.
I am going to Rita’s today for my FREE Italian Ice! Are you?
I figured I can since John and I started going to the gym last week I feel better already. The worst part about it is getting up since we go at 5:30AM! I start feeling a little mushy around lunch time, but the end result will make it worth it. J Gotta get my girlish figure going for the nice weather coming.
I am so excited for my first class at Scrapbookings Inn next Tuesday. I still have seats available if you are interested sign up here www.scrapbookingsinnllc.com under events. I am teaching 4 classes there in April so check them out while you are at it.
Sale-A-Bration is coming to end. You still have time to order though! Contact me today so you can get some FREE product! I LOVE the Ribbon Bundle and the Designer Series Paper in the Sale-A-Bration mini!
As Sale-A-Bration is ending, I am gearing up for the NEW Occasions Mini that will be available April 1st. Some very cute Spring Stamp Sets, a NEW oval Scallop punch, etc… to find out more or you’d like a catalog or maybe even book a workshop in April contact me today I still have a few dates available.
Don’t forget to come see me at the Palmer Township Craft Fair tomorrow at the Charles Chrin Community Center from 9AM- 4PM and I will have a little treat for you. You can be one of the first to get your hands on a All Stampin’ Up! Scrapbook kit put together by Kim and I. We will have a lot of hand stamped gift items for Easter. See ya there!

Friday Night May 29th
The Eastonian-Holiday Inn Express
90 Kunkle Dr.
Easton, PA 18045
(next to Don Pablo’s)
Contact me for further details!
We also talked about our Relay for Life team. We are a part of the Easton Chapter. Last year was our first time as a Stamp Group that we had a team and can I tell you what an AMAZING experience it was for me. I think I can say that on behalf of our whole group. I was a little torn it was graduation week, I had my parents and brother here from Florida and the day of the event was Kayla's graduation party. We did find time to walk though (6:30AM the day of the party Kayla & I were both there and walked our 2 miles.) We are looking for additional walkers, if you are interested get in contact with me. Jamie, one of the girls in our group wore a pedometer and walked like 34 miles through the whole 24 hour event. We each made some handstamped things to sell and set a goal of $1000 for our team and we doubled that and donated over $2000 to the American Cancer Society. Come back to my blog for more details.
Well, Kayla is back to school with her own car. Yes, it makes me a little scared. At least I don't have to drive out there now to pick her up every time she wants to come home. I was kind of getting excited for the warm weather though to go out and shop in Lancaster, now that I know it is only 10 minutes from her. I'll just have take day trips. :)
I took Tyler to the Dr this morning about his thumb, still broken but healing accordingly, still has to wear the brace. He is released to participate in gym.
Today I am thankful to have my job. On Friday they came in laid off one of my co-workers. It's really sad and I feel so bad for her. I am also thankful that Kayla made it safely back to school and only has about 6 weeks to go of her 1st year of college! ALREADY???
Have a great Monday!

Mom was supposed to have surgery but it was cancelled at the last minute due to her health. I continued on with my visit though. Thanks god though. We took her to dialysis on Thursday and we were told to bring her to the Hospital because the infection in her blood was back and they need to get the catheter out of her neck and prepare her for another surgery to put a ne one in. See, there was a reason why I kept my trip as planned. There is nothing worse then those calls from my sister or dad to tell me she is in the hospital again and be 1000 miles away worrying. At least I was there this time to see she really is ok. We went back and forth to the hospital all of Thursday and Friday. They took the bad port out and put a temporary one in Friday and they have to wait until the infection is completely out of her system to do the other surgery. I hated to leave her Friday night. Did I mention I bought the book The Secret as I was so inspired by Amy the owner of the Scrapbookings Inn. After reading it almost half way through by the time my flight landed in Florida, I knew my mom was going to be ok if I left. I am slowly understanding the meaning of the secret. I need to keep going back for a reminder. It's amazing how differently you think though and I do believe in the secret.
I'm also thankful for my husband that took care of everything while I was away and who always understands me with no questions asked.
