What's new

Well I am so proud of myself. I have all my Christmas cards finished and it is not even November 1 as yet. I am the one who usually starts their cards like 2 weeks before Christmas and then is scrambling to get them mailed and delivered on time. So needless to say I am very very happy and I am also scaring myself (LOL). At this rate I’ll be finished with all my Christmas projects by the end of November – now won’t that be great.

In other news, I have started to apply for Design Teams. I am giving myself six months before I throw my energies into something else. I figure if it’s meant to be it will be. The thing about it is that I love the layouts that I do and that is why I scrap. If my style does not fit in with what others are looking for that’s ok with me because whatever happens I will always keep scrapping. Okay off my soap box.

Laughed till I cried!

Last night I went to an Aids Benefit concert at UMass Dartmouth. One of the Frats puts it together and this is the fifth year that they have done it. I went with my friend Tricia and it was a blast. The MC was this guy Kevin Brown who was on one of the past seasons of Lat Comic Standing and just got cast in that new show on NBC called “30 Rock”. He is also a Frat brother and he comes in to host the show for them every year and also brings an up and coming comedian with him to close the show. This time he brought a comedian from CA (of course now I can’t remember his name) who was the closer on Def Comedy Jam about 2 weeks ago. He was hilarious. Between Kevin Brown and this comedian I was laughing till tears were streaming down my face.

Yesterday was also the BBQ for alumni homecoming weekend at UMD so I stopped by during the day to hang out for a bit. It was fun. They had a really good turn out. Joe the new Alumni Director did an awesome job. In my years working at UMass this was the biggest turn out I have seen. Way to go Joe!!

Cyber cropping

This weekend there is a cyber crop at Crafty Keepsakes from Friday - Sunday. I love doing cyber crops because I don't have to pack anything, I can wear what I want, and snacks and drinks are only a few feet away.

I hope to get some of the challenges completed and join in some of the fun games an maybe even win a prize or two.
