Wonderful Saturday!

After a horrible week of my entire family having a stomach virus (knock on wood - I did not get it), I had a wonderful Saturday! Friday night I was getting ready to go to Joni's house to do some stamping and our air conditioner went out!!! Luckily, we got it fixed and my dear hubby was so sweet to tell me to just go on. So I went to Joni's late, but had a great time! Then Saturday, I took a class with one of my best friends, Cindy. We made a little mini-scrapbook shaped like a purse at Joni's house. Then we went to the stamping convention in Grapevine. It was fun, but I was a little disappointed. We found out after we got there that several of the normal vendors were not there because they were at CHA in Chicago - BUMMER! But, never fear, I found a booth to spend plenty of money in - hehe! Then Joni was so nice to open her house to us so that we could go back and play with our new stamps. We just had such a great time - I hated to see it end!

Today, Sunday, I have been hard at work finishing my newest digital kit, Fancy Feline. I'm uploading the kit to both of my sites as I'm typing this. I'm so tickled with it and think that anyone with cats will love this kit. It is a huge kit - 5 zip files full! The preview is on the right of my blog.

Oh - and I have to share that we are actually making progress on the potty training with my son. I am so happy!!! I might be able to send him to the 2 day a week pre-k after all! (They won't let them go if they're not potty trained - and I was pretty sure it was NEVER going to happen - rofl.) So here's hoping that the success will continue!!!

That's about all for now. I hope you are all well and having fun also!

Lots happened since last post - hehe

Sorry it has been so long since I posted last. We made a surprise trip to Kansas to see my parents, and I couldn't write about it because I didn't want to spoil the surprise for them. My Mom had been upset that her 3 kids had not been all together with her in several years, so my middle brother set it all up and we shocked her when we showed up. It was great and we had a wonderful time. I left on June 19th and didn't get back until June 30th. Then with unpacking, the 4th of July and all - it's just been a whirlwind. Things seem to be settling down now and I'm glad to get back to normal - even though I did have a great time.

We took the kids to see the fireworks in Haltom City, and it was a fun time. I actually read the manual on my camera and got some good photos this time - hehe. I'll have to share them if I ever get them downloaded.

Saturday was a fun day. I got to spend the day with Amanda and we had a great time shopping, eating, and watching a movie. It was great to catch up and the day went by way too fast!! We ran into our friend, Bobbie, while we were out and it was so nice to see her and talk with her!

Then Monday, Kaylee and I had a wonderful "Mommy-Daughter" day at Miss Joni's house (our friendly neighborhood Stampin' Up rep - and our good friend!!!) We had so much fun visiting, eating pizza, making cards and boxes, and Kaylee even learned to use the watercolor crayons with blending pens. Joni was so wonderful to show her and give her a beautiful paper to color and a canvas to put it on as a birthday gift to her!! Thanks Joni - she loves it - and we had a day we will not soon forget!

I'm hard at work on my next kit, which is about cats. I'm more of a dog person, so this one has been a little hard for me, but I have some people who are really wanting a cat kit, and I'm up to the challenge. I'm really hoping to finish it this week, so we'll see.

Well, I still have some laundry to do and a kit to make, so I'd better get to it. I hope everyone is well and having a great summer!

~til next time (hopefully not so long of a next time - hehe)
