I am so tired tonight! You can tell you’re getting old when staying up until 11:30 to watch politics wears you out the next day! I am excited the results were worth watching, to me anyway!

Since I’m  tired, and since I haven’t stamped in a few days, I am going to post something that will shock you! Ha ha. It’s my disaster of a stamping room:

A tornado ran through here!

It’s also my office, but the little card table is
where I do all my stamping work. As you can tell, I must have been busy. I’m a messy creative mind!! I did clean it up since this picture was taken. Only time will tell how long it will stay clean.

On a more creative note… I am attending my first craftshow in December. I have made nothing for it yet, except for these handy bookmarks. I am really loving how they turned out. most of them anyway. I bought 48 more of these big paperclips the other day, so I am going to get to work on them this weekend. I think my favorite is the owl… mostly because I love that set!!:)

Craftshow, here I come!

On a completely random side note… I’m thinking of switching my blog over to blogger.com. I have my personal (not very exciting, though…) blog there, and I find it so much easier to use then wordpress. Plus, I’m kind of a “that’s what everyone else is doing” type of person… and I’m wooed by how many blogger blogs there are. So, if I move locations, I’ll let you know.

It’s my birthday on Friday! Woot woot!!

Just a short blog tonight… I’ve got a husband awaiting my company at our new big screen TV. 🙂

Tonight I placed my very first SU! order as a demo. I am hosting a class on Nov. 14 and 15 to make Christmas cards, and I had to order all that goodies. I’m so nervous about it now! Eep! The order was (of course) more than I wanted it to be, as since I’m new to demoing, I had to order paper, ribbon, brads, blah, blah blah because I don’t have any. So, my guests are getting quite the bargain! I had to pay $150 of my own money to order enough supplies. Eep! (and the Season of Friendship set, which I’ve been drooling over for a month now!)

I keep telling myself it will all work out in the end. I have ELEVEN people coming to my very first class! And 4 or 5 of them are people I don’t know…. friends of friends. So I think the potential is definitely there for a good customer base. If I can book a show or two from this class….. it will totally wipe out the $150 in supplies I had to buy!

Oh! I’ve made my quarterly minimum with this class — and will reach commissionable sales for the month of November. So it can’t be THAT bad, right? And hubby didn’t get too mad when I told him the “overs.”

When I get the stuff and make my samples, I will definitely post pictures. (I also hope to post pictures tomorrow of what I’m working on in the moment. Today got too busy!)
