I cannot believe it is already Wednesday night! I knew I had a very busy week, but my goodness how time has rushed by! By the way, does anyone else walk around all day wondering what day it is? LOL! I seem to be doing that more and more lately. It is Wednesday, right? Is it an age thing, or a sign of brain overload? Probably a combination of both.
Now for the “all about me” part. All the busy-ness I just mentioned has nothing to do with anything other than placating and pampering me! Time with MY friends. Trip to MY not-so-local scrapbook store. Two hour gym sessions. Manicure and pedicure. Travel to Athens to see MY baby girl and MY man! What, pray tell, have I left out? Is there any other thing I could possibly do just for me…hmmmm.
Oh yeah! Remember that I mentioned a recent purchase I made just for me? The thing that had me so excited I was about to burst. Well, I think it is high time I share. If you love this scrappin’ hobby as much as I do, you will understand my enthusiasm. Ready?
That’s right, friends, I am the proud, very proud, owner of a brand new Canon EOS D40! I did countless hours of research and worked diligently to juggle my budget in order to make it happen. And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, I was able to register for Karen Russell’s photography class starting in June! This is such a hard class to get into…super long waiting list. But I have secured my spot and I am working very hard to learn as much as I can about my new toy before class starts. Good thing I didn’t get in the March class, huh?
If you knew me, you would know how hard it was to pull the trigger on this purchase. I rarely, if ever, make big purchases that are for my benefit only. I didn’t even get on the digital bandwagon for years because I couldn’t justify the cost. But this new phase of life I am in – the part where I am redefining who I am – has me thinking that I need to now focus on some of those things that I’ve always wanted to do. Perfecting my photography skills is high on my list. So…new camera in hand…photography class coming up…and I am on my way to marking one thing off my bucket list!
Because I am making this post all about me, I thought I would throw a question out there for all you scrappy ladies. The reason I made the 45-minute trek to my not-so-local scrapbook store is because of a challenge they are currently doing. I have only participated in something such as this one other time but this one sounded too fun to not participate. The challenge requires the use of one of 2 new Basic Grey lines, Marrakech or Porcelain, Core-dinations card stock and any item from Technique Tuesday. The question I pose to you is, which line do you think you would enjoy scrapping? Guess you can tell I couldn’t make up my mind. Anyone have a favorite? BTW, the winner of the challenge gets $100.00 – $50.00 cash and $50.00 in store credit! Pretty good, wouldn’t you say?
Happy day to you all!
P.S. Just so you know I am definitely NOT an all-about-me kind of girl, I would love to do a give-away with a fabulous stamp & paper kit. However, given my recent issues with blogger and the inability to post comments, I thought it best to wait and see if the issue has been resolved. So stay tuned!
