End of National Craft Month

What a way to end a month of unending crafts than to complete my certification to be a Certified Fiskars Demonstrator. I had so much fun with friends and Sudie (our instructor). I even ate way too much (paying for it today), but it was fun. Several of my friends from the Columbia area went to Charleston for the training.

And I made a few new friends with Betty and Dalene from the Greensboro area. Here are a few pictures from the day.

Judy of The Stamping Station and Scrapbook Store in West Columbia, and Fiskateer with Stacy, our wonderful Fiskars Rep.

Leslie, another Fiskateer and all around fun person! She is associated with the Stamping Station.

Angie, one of my best friends, cropping buddy, and a brand new Fiskateer!

Dalene, teacher and creative designer at a LSS in Greensboro, NC
Betty owner of LSS in Greensboro, NC and all around fun person!

Angie and Sudie, out fearless Leader!

I wish I could tell you all the talent, gifts, wisdom, business sense, great mom, and good friend Sudie is. I'm fortunate to know her and number her under one of my best friends. Scrapbooking really bring people together.

I've just completed my very first custom scrapbook order and it is ready for delivery. I'm excited. I have three more books to work on this week alone and hope I can get a rhythm going where I can do that.
I'm demoing at the AC Moores in Irmo, SC. I'm looking forward to doing that because I meet all sorts of interesting people and I'm getting to know the staff very well.
Our Fellowship meets on Saturday, but I'll only be there in the morning to say "hello," and I'll be there to say "goodbye" to everyone since I'm working at AC Moores that day.
April 19th's Save the Memory Crop is coming up fast and I'm so out of it right now. Hopefully, Monday I'll start on the planning of it again.
Both my GD's birthdays are in April so we will have several celebrations happening at the end of the month.
Whoo, Hoo, I'm going to a weekend of three classes with Donna Downey in May! Check out Donna's blog on the left side under "Where in the World..." to find out days. She will be at the "Pink House" in Charleston.
Last chance for National Craft Month Comment Challenge/RAK: Click on the link to the left that is labeled the UnKit. Check it out and come back here and leave a comment. This is a wonderful "not your normal kit unclub" owned by our own Sudie. Let me know.
Gratitude List:

    Hi Debbie - I didn't get it... kits you couldn't order?

    Then I found the "UNbelievable" post that explained everything! (and I went to March and see what she means about the shopping cart!)

    Not I see how cool of an idea it is!

    correction: "NOW I see how cool of an idea it is!"

  4. I've been to their blog and site several times this week. I really like the idea. I love the "tutorials"
    you can pick what you like and just buy what you need. They've done all the hard work mixing and matching. I hope it catches on.
