Okay so I was going to tell you that I fell overboard on the cruise and that is why I haven't been blogging but as most of you know, I don't swim, I just dog paddle and that would be waaaaay too far for me to dog paddle. phew! Thank you for not giving up on me. If you are one of the ones that has checked back here every day, email me email@example.com by May 26th, I have a surprise for you (and thank you for not giving up on me)!
I have had some amazing family time. It started with a FREE one week cruise for Kevin and I to the Southern Caribbean from Shelli Gardner the owner of Stampin' Up! How did it start? I did laundry, packed and we were off. WOW, what an amazing place.
Here we are in Barbados. It was gorgeous.
Here I am with Linda Heller and Patsy Waggoner. Demos from Florida and Minnesota. Did you see what we wrote in the sand?
When we got home, I did the laundry and repacked and we were off to South Dakota to see my oldest son get his PhD. He is now officially a Doctor! Here it goes…he's a Geological Engineer specializing in Water Resources. He has worked for the USGS for five years while completing his education. He atteneded the School of Mines for his graduate work and his Phd. They said he was the YOUNGEST student ever to graduate from South Dakota School of Mines with his Phd. Ohhhhhhhh I'm so proud!
My family :0)
We bought Josh personalized license plates for his birthday.
We took a little time out to visit Mt. Rushmore. We've been there before but it's always fun to go back. It was cold!
Then we got home, I did the laundry and repacked and we were off to Syracuse for my daughter's graduation from LeMoyne College. She did her undergraduate work in only THREE years! YEAH! Now she is off to Law School in the fall.
Here we are at Katie's Graduation

Then we got home, I did the laundry and repacked and I was off to Massachusetts for a Stamping Event I was putting on with another demonstrator. We had almost 100 attendees. It was a blast…that was Friday and Saturday. Then on Sunday I had my demonstrator's get together. FUN FUN!!!!
People started arriving at our Stamping Event held in Springfield Massachusetts.
Meg Loven was a presenter, Tami White and Deb Valder put on the event and BJ Peters also put on a presentation.
I didn't have time to do laundry before my demonstrators get together on Sunday (the day after the Massachusetts event). But I was clean. We made the flowers that BJ showed us at the event on Saturday. Everyone loved them. I've been making lots and lots of them.
Here is Jacqueline and Ann working on their flowers.
Here's Barb with her new pin. They came out beautiful.
Here are a few of my direct downline after they made their flowers. SOOOOO beautiful. Thank you BJ for showing us how to make them.
Now I've got the laundry done and I'm thinking we are going to Boston this weekend to see my oldest son, he is flying in from South Dakota for a wedding next weekend, the bachelor party is this Saturday and he's the best man. So we may take a trip out there to see him.
Then, the next weekend we are off to Maine for the the wedding! Phew….I'll stop there. My poor little suitcase has not seen this much travel in such a short amount of time EVER!
I have lots and lots to share with you. So check back often. You never know what I'm going to post.
Enjoy your day.
