Check out the seams on the Coin purse. Could those stripes match any better?!! SHE IS AWESOME!! These are roughly 4x4 inches. Come with a zipper. The lime flower one is 5" long. I find it tough to reach the bottom with it being that long. So I want to see them stay 4". Just my opinion!
This is my Jordyn bag to show. Love the fabric combo! It's more of a grab & go bag. Not real big. My sister tell me this is what she affectionately calls a bar bag. It comes with a zipper and exterior pocket. The strap is long but for me, not long enough to wear over my body. Yeah, I know I look very thin in my last photo I posted...but IRL I am much larger! LOL The "girls" make it hard to get much over or around me! LOL

I have my ElisaLou Grand Opening Show on tuesday night! Looking forward to it. Sent out over 75 postcards but have only heard from a dozen or so. Not many can make it and now we are getting all this snow. Should be fun either way! Those that are coming are really excited about it. Got one person at the crop yesterday who was really interested in ordering and one who wants me to come back and do a party for her. So things are taking off again for me.
I have weekend retreat this weekend for TLC. I am going to mix things up a bit. Going with a BOGO SALE. Tried the 50% off and didn't work so going to see if Buy one get one Free works! Same price just different view. The word FREE usually gets 'em. I am just at a loss as to what to do to sell some of this stuff.

You have no clue how hard it was to find just the right angle to hide all my rolls. But I think I finally figured it out. It's all in how you arch the back. I have no clue how my suit turned brown? I thought it was a burgandy color with a floral top? Oh well, you know what they say about beggers...
Please don't point out all my flaws. I know there are many here... I am just a shy girl and it takes a lot of courage for me to show you this. I did biggest loser last season...I forgot to tell ya!

Which reminds me, Amy Jo, are you joining us?
Long day. So cold here. I have the heat at 74 degrees and I am still cold.
Booked a party for Elisa Lou tonight. An old dear friend, Laurie Cross, from my days with SIAS is going to have one. She is so excited. I think we are going to do it Feb. 11 or 12. So that will be a good excuse for the ladies to buy themselves a nice VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT!
Brrrr....off to cover up again.

OK...it has been a very odd day. I got up and went in to the school to do my Fl2 program. Took William to Mom's today instead of taking him with me. While I was doing the Fl2 the cook comes up to me and asks me if I would be interested in Subbing in the kitchen today? I said sure, if I can have my Mom keep Will. (she did) She said, "ok, let me go find out if that will be ok with them." She comes back with the school secretary and told me that I need to go to the Main Office across the street to fill out paper work. I said, Why? I already filled out all my volunteer papers. (obviously...as I am one at the moment) she says no you need to fill out w4 forms. I still didn't get it. WHY? I have never know of anyone needing my info for volunteer work. DUH....They are PAYING ME! I just assumed they wanted me to fill in for today. Well, I get paid to do that! It was so fun! Granted it's about 1/3 of what I get paid for my real job, but still! So from 11-1, I was serving carrots!! THEY HATED ME! I give them Fluoride and Cooked Carrots all in one day!!! I RULE! LOL
So I am now on the sub list for kitchen help! I got to wear a hair net!! Where WAS my camera???!!
Here's another thing I noticed today. Kids do not use manners much. I think I heard 5 Thank You's all day. WOW?! Guess what my son and I are talking about over dinner tonight!! you guessed it, MANNERS. He better always remember to say Thank You. He didn't come thru my line as he is Cold Lunch...but if he had...he better say Thank You.

Funny and Chocolate go hand in hand with this photo!
For those of you who don't know the whole story...this is the super condensed version.
While on our TLC cruise, I climbed into bed with out noticing the nice piece of chocolate they had put on my pillow. Well, I layed there for a short while and dozed off and on. I then was talking to Bev and decided to roll over and she screams at me not to move. I was freaking out wonder what was wrong. It was all down the side of my upper arm and on my back. It was a MESS. It ruined my new Scrapbook Girl Tshirt too! Well, the room servant must have wondered what happened because I got the funniest look from him the next day. I told, "It was chocolate, I swear!" He just laughed.
Bev has the photos of me laying there with all this chocolate up my arm. It really is a super funny story! OK...that makes me laugh and I feel better now! Ahh...good times, good times.

Well, that's all I really have to say today. Other than, I MISS YOU PAPA BILL! Loving you always and missing you still.

I had my one on one call with MM tonight. They said a check will be sent out tomorrow. I will believe it when I see it. And even if it does show up...how high will it bounce?! I am owed $361.91! LOL Posted that for you Shell! ( I mentioned it a few times on the phone! LOL ) Just don't want them to forget. And they had the nerve to ask me about returning those dud bags they sent. They will get them when I get my check and it clears. Not before. Plus I am still waiting on one checkbook cover to be returned. They wanted to know why I was returning the checkbook covers. Why would anyone want a check book cover with no bag to put it in?! That is why I am returning them.

Got a couple digital layouts done for Zander's teacher. She asked me to do a couple layouts with the Christmas party pictures for the class scrapbook. So I used LifeTimez for that task. I had to keep it very simple because we have to so many off. I just kept a white background with very few elements. Looks good enough for what they need it for.
Back to the screaming mimi....

I have waited and waited for this to come Michigan! Bev and I have our hotel room already booked! LOL We booked it back in August, I think! LOL I thought I better look into this and I am sooo glad I did. I tried not to get too excited about it and just sorta pushed it to the back of mind. But for whatever reason, I thought I would check it today. www.ckscrapbookevents.com
Anyone wanna come play with us?! You are all welcome! It will take place April 19th - 21st.

I really like it. I may go shorter later. Need to test run this length for awhile. It's so relaxing getting my hair done. Swapped the cut & color for an ElisaLou Messenger bag and thru in a MM Brianna with monogram! That got me this one free and possible half off my next one! LOL It's good to barter services.
Well, off to figure out dinner. Hoping to have dinner at the in-laws tomorrow as it is Abby's Birthday. Got her an ElisaLou laptop cover. So...do you see a theme here?!
