Which would you like first? The bad news? Ok, here goes. My computer is doing the exact same thing it was doing before I sent it away. For 3 weeks. To get fixed. This includes but is not limited to restarting itself randomly (mostly during the typing of long e-mails), the keyboard shutting down (which causes me to have to shut down and restart), e-mail working only when it wants to, etc, etc, etc. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? How the heck am I supposed to get published this year if I spend half of it without a computer? And my camera is having it's shutter assembly replaced so I won't have that back for about a week either. I sent that away at the beginning of August. I know. What a month.
As for good news...I spent the better part of last Friday being entertained and simply AMAZED by the one and only Leica Forrest. And of course her darling little men Riley and Jager. My son was in heaven. They beat each other with sports equipment, got dirty, made lots of noise and had a generally all around "boy" good time. Leica is such a great person. Just a normal, down to earth Mommy who happens to be an amazing scrapbooker. Who happens to have been published a million times. Who happens to be teaching at the Crop and Cruise. Who happens to be such an inspirational person. Wow, did she give me some good advice. Thanks for a wonderful day Leica! Let's do it again soon!
Cross your fingers...I am meeting with the principal of the highschool this week to try to get some money out of him so I can buy albums and trimmers for my kids crop. Which I still haven't named yet. Any ideas? It's a class for underpriviledged kids from grades 7 to 12. I need a cool, short name. I am having a terrible time with it. Stay tuned for much more about the class...I'll have weekly updates and photos of all of the amazing creations! Showing the scrapbooking world what your donations can do! Thanks for all the support of supplies, encouragment and prayers! More later!
