Picture of new catalogue

I have posted the image of the new catalogue on the sidebar - Does that metal piece on the front look familiar? Yes, it is the bezel we used to make our "Life So Big" butterfly necklace in May!

The stamp set used on the cover design is "Fly Fairy" - mine is on order! (I placed my first order yesterday!)  If it doesn't come in time for everyone to see it, Paula-Kay has promised to loan me hers to show you!  When I first saw the image, I wasn't sure that I liked it.  It is a vintage graphic - historical to boot!  But done in the beautiful raspberry and ice blue of the new Soar With It Collection Maggie, she is beginning to grow on me!  I have a button (provided by TAC) with that image on my new jacket (that I love).  I'll try to remember to wear it on TECH day next week!

I'm home!

With SO much going on and SO little time, I didn't spend anytime on the internet while I was in Wichita for The Angel Company's Annual Seminar!  I concentrated on the fabulous new catalogue (can't wait to show you!) , the projects (oh, my ...) and sharing my "dangles" with fellow Angels.  (I sold 31 of them - all the stock that I had, plus a few more I had to make in the room!)  I do have a few pieces left - they will be on display at TECH on July 7!

I will be sharing pix and other details about the new catalogue in coming days, so ... stay tuned!

Gabrielle is here!

Gabby has arrived - finally!  She's 8 lbs 7 oz, born today, June 22 on her mommy's birthday!  Baby, Mommy and Daddy all doing fine!  Nana and Great Grandma were there, but Aunt poki will have to wait to see the beautiful little girl!  Just too many things to do in preparation for trip to Kansas tomorrow! 

Check back for updates from Seminar!

Great time at June TECH!

We had a great time at the June TECH - although wildly rescheduled!  I'm sorry that 3 people who had intended to come weren't able to come at my rescheduled time!  I believe everyone enjoyed our altered canvas project! 

We had two lucky door prize winners: 

Mary Duffel (will receive her prize with her order)


Debby Bridge (got her prize on Thursday night!

Each received one of the Limited Edition butterfly sets which are part of the May/June Jubilation!

I am now in my "frantic" preparation mode for Seminar 2010.  I'm leaving my house about 6:00 a.m. on Thursday to make the drive to Wichita with Paula Kay and Cindie.  By the time I arrive in Wichita, I will have been in 3 vehicles, meaning I've loaded my stuff 3 times!!! (My car, PK's car in Temple, and Cindie's van in Ft Worth!)  I hope I get a nap enroute, because I just received an invitation today  to my TEAM MEETING at 10:00 p.m. on Thursday night!  What a long day Thursday will be!

I had a productive weekend - at the beginning of Saturday my swap count was ZERO!  Nothing done!  By the end of Sunday, I had completed and packed 41 cardfronts!!  I have one more project - which may or may not get done before we leave!  I also completed presents for 3 Angels, just have to finish wrapping the last one.  I also 29 dangles and bagtags ready to sell, with kits prepped to make 27 more if I need them!  I have had a busy 10 days since returning from vacation on June 12.

TECH in July is scheduled for Wednesday, July 7 at 2:00 or 6:00 p.m.  This is a week earlier than normal due to Mom's surgical procedure on July 8.  She is having a Day Surgery on her elbow to release a compression on her Ulner nerve (she has two fingers that have been "asleep" for almost a year now!)  I am not sure what her post surgical needs will be so I wanted to make sure that we were able to have our TECH Squad meeting to introduce the NEW CATALGOUE!!!  Mischelle (the owner) has been giving lots of hints - she just can't wait to share it with us!  Hopefully we will see it on FRIDAY MORNING EARLY!!!!  I plan to place my first order (I know that I will NEED stuff) before TECH Squad, so hopefully I will have some things to show you.  I know that I will have projects to show you from Seminar!

Talk to you soon!

We were almost to Dallas (Hillsboro) when the call came in from Bryan, that the test results today said that Gabby wasn't ready to be here yet.  No baby today!  We turned around and came back home!!! How disappointing!  They're going to try again next week, but I don't think I will get to go, since I will be preparing for my trip to Kansas!  Oh, well ... I'll just have to go up for a visit soon!

I am expecting these crafters on Thursday:

2:00 - Karen, Mary
6:00 - Debby, Cathie ?, Cathie's friend?, Arlene?

Sorry for the inconvenience of the change of TECH day!

Gabby (my new great niece) is making her appearance on WEDNESDAY instead of THURSDAY as we previously expected!  TECH Squad which had been moved to TUESDAY, JUNE 15 will now be on THURSDAY, JUNE 17 at 2:00 and 6:00 p.m.  I have attempted to contact everyone by phone (some with no luck!) and have e-mailed everyone that I thought was coming with this SURPRISE in my schedule.  Hope all can attend on Thursday instead of Tuesday!  Please let me know!
