ce update.........and odd stuff!










hello to all..........life is just as busy as always.......and i just love it! i would love to have some time to catch up on everything.......however i really do love my life!!!




ce was wonderful!!!!!!!!! the classes were outstanding.....they were absolutely better than the first two years....can you imagine that??? however the atmosphere while there was definitely different.....and not for the better! really kind of sad, too! i missed all the girls that have been there in the past........even the yahoo party lacked some of the flavor of years past!


catherine and i took laurie montague to CE......at least in spirit....and she had a grand time.....she was seen getting a little kiss from doug jones.....her paper boy.....and another man from "across the pond" was also seen giving laurie a little peck on the cheek...........how the heck did she get some kisses.....when the rest of us hardly saw a man around???? well...............................................i did get to see some of the friends i've made over years ....my very special secret sister, lyn meeker!! she was there with bree ross......love those women!!! just beautiful...inside and out!


also got to see miss joey otlo......and she is just the most bubbly person evah!!!!!!! and she shared the shirt off her back with me!!! just love that! (will have that puppy on this weekend!)


and carol from bazzill......gotta love her, too.....she also shared the shirt (inside scoop!!)




shared a room with catherine f-e....what fun! she decorated the room with streamers, fresh flowers and banners!!!!!!! she also had wine, chips and cheese.......our own party in the room! and laurie had a large fruit bouquet waiting for us..........it was delicious...gotta love watermelon and cantaloupe..........mmmmmm good! shared some of it with the girls at the yahoo party......way too much fruit for just two girls..........!!!!




let's see......heidi looks fabulous.....doug jones looks wonderful......especially in a pink boa and black/pink apron! frani, joey otlo, carol and all the wonderful folks from bazzill looked so great!


amy totty's new hair style is soooo damn cute.......and lara cousins hair is sooo damn long....i almost didn't recognize her!!!!!!!! now i want to let mine grow out.....and use the flat iron even more!


mary mitchell was there......and doing well.....until she received sad news from her son.......a family friend had been killed while overseas in the service. we tried to support her the best we could........she held up.....just really needed her family.....that was half way across the country!


amanda and ann looked great......love that girl.........she is just soooo beautiful......and tiny, too!!!


kyoko gave me one of her charms......looks like a little white hershey's kiss.....will always think of her when i look at it! jeanne kelly gave me two of her charms....love them! since i didn't know i was going to ce until the last minute i didn't join in any swaps........i did receive some pages......from mary mitchell....and a few from some other girls.....they will be a great start to a book for me! saw jeanne kelley, cathy, shannon, jill b from texas, karin from here in missouri, saw meredith (who lives less than 1 mile from me......and i've only seen her once while here at home!) i'm sure that there are many names that i have forgotten.......sorry....i'm old and tired!




i had most of my stuff shipped home....and it arrived yesterday.......can't wait to get into it and start to play!




i have been working on some stuff for a design team try-out......wish me luck...........and i still need to do a few more things for it.....and email those!




i will attach a few photos from ce...........




i love my life!!!!!!!!
