i am exhausted ... literally can't get out of bed ... my scrappy weekend was AWESOME! didn't get too much finished but got lots started and learned TONS!!!

friday night i had a WONDERFUL beginner class ... i so love it when people really enjoy the class and feel like they got full value for their time... my class that would have normally been a 1.5 hr class ended up being 3 hrs (which was agreed to by ALL!) ... they had great questions and i think we ALL learned a little something - hey, we even had a "field-trip" into the paper racks during the class! hope to see you all in the Beyond the Beginner!!

saturday we had a super fun QUEENS CROP complete with queens, fairies, design team and a make and take that included COOKIES!! yup, treats and scrappy stuff - my fav! i think some scrappy fairies might have a new addiction...? it was so great to be able to spend time actually SCRAPPING w my peeps! cant wait for the next one in May!!! (izzy and tab, you were missed ...)

sunday i took a great class of Natalie's ... 5 cards ... great techniques, great papers, lots of different techniques. Thanx to Isobel and Sheila for putty up w my inability to keep up!!

finished it off w a glass of wine at the pub for dinner with the family!

i was so CONSUMED with Scrapfest that i totally forgot to tell you all: i TURNED 29 LAST WEEK!!!!!! woohoo!!!! DAMN, 1982 was a good year!

convieniently, it was a car year so DAH's shopping was easy-peasy! (and, sadly, no 2 karat, princess cut in an antique setting ring again this year ... sadface ...but on the flip side, i am cool-mum w a way cool ride!)

i also got some ROCKIN' new hockey gloves - don't hate cause i'm better dressed than you, b*tch's! and since DAH's b-day was the week before, split the difference and had some yummy peanut butter chocolate cupcakes from Sugared Memories!

peuf!!! i SURVIVED Scrapfest!

Well, its OFFICIAL - i survived Scrapfest!

SQ had an awesome booth at Scrapfest in KItchener last weekend! We spent many weeks preparing for what was essential the wild blue yonder! Oh, i have been to (and worked) many trade and consumer shows but not in this capacity!

Our booth looked amazing - in the words of a fan "the best decorated booth at the show"! WOW!! Lorrie came up with a wonderful design concept and we did it! Check out the chandelier in the pics below ...

Set up was relatively painless ... and by showtime on Friday at 4pm, we were ready for the masses! We showcased some of our FAVOURITE things : Lorrie Everitt Designs exclusives, Quick Quotes kits and GlueArts Glue Glider Pros and refills. We had some other pretty good deals but certainly didn't bring everything and the kitchen sink! Just enough to keep us on our toes.

We met up with some old friends and made lots of new ones! Thanx to everyone who stopped by and for those of you who didn't quite make it ... Come visit me at the store this week - i have a couple show stoppers specials left i can hook you up with (but don't tell the QUEEN!! LOL!!)
