"It's Hump Day... and, Boy, Does it Feel Like it!!"

I really feel like Crap-ola today!! I think my head is so full of gunk that I could start a Snot Factory!! (This weather is about to kill me--freezing cold in the morning and then up to about 55 degrees in the afternoon! It drives my nasal thingies crazy!!) And crampy stomach on top of it, and I really feel physically yucky!

Mentally, I am excited and ready to tackle all sorts of things. Just gotta get my body to cooperate!

I've got a TON of stuff to get done for the Scrapbooking Extravaganza we're having at our church on Saturday. This is all benefiting the Student Leadership University trip that McKenna and four others in the youth group are going on this summer (they are going to London, Paris, will be on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day!) and it costs an Official Arm and a Leg to go! We're hoping that the scrapbook event will raise at least a couple of hundred dollars for each kid!

If you are anywhere near me (like in Alabama), you should seriously consider coming! We are going to have SO much FUN!! I have a lady doing a session on Basic Scrapbook Design; I'm doing an All About Me Page session; and the FANTABULOUS Adrienne Nixon is doing the cutest mini tag album! Plus--open crop time all day long (from 10 am to 10 pm), lunch and supper, snacks all day long, layout contest, on-site "store"; and door prizes at every hour!!! It's really going to be FUN; now I just hope the people show up for it!

So, today I have to-- get door prizes together, work on a few projects I'm going to have for sale, get our registration list together, stuff like that.

Seriously... let me know if you want to come and I'll get you signed up! (oh, it's just $30!!)

Also, in Scrapbooking News (lol), last night I did a "Things I Love" mini album class at Scrapbook Mania. How FUN was that? The gals were so creative!! Here is a glimpse of the albums they made . . .




And some cookies I made for everyone (hey, if I'm around, there WILL be snacks!! LOL) . . .


Next Tuesday night I am teaching a Heidi Swapp calendar class. It's going to really be cool. If you're near by and think you'd like to come to it, let me know!

Now, totally switching gears...

Who in the heck is ready for this??????




"Lost" is BACK!!! And, can you tell, I'm just a tad-bit EXCITED?!!! I CANNOT WAIT to find out what happens, and I've heard we'll be going back to the beach and focus some more on some of the characters we haven't seen in the last several episodes. (Sayid!!) And now we will have 16 straight episodes to watch! Yay!!

Are any of you like me right now--all a-tingle just waiting for 9 oclock tonight? LOL

Off to take a hot bath... hoping that makes me feel a little bit more "alive"!

Happy Hump Day! See ya tomorrow!!

Hi, Cheryl! Thanks for looking at my blog :)
I feel your pain about being sick, I have the same crud right now. Feel better!

Misty Posey said...

Hey Cheryl, why didn't I think to take a picture of all the girls canvases in my class? What a dork I am. Those are so cute, looked like a fun class. I'll see you a Maniac Madness, right?

cityfarmer said...

You didn't eat all those cookies did you, maybe that could be the cause of the tummie ache..hehehe

Greta said...

dang girl you wanna come to my house with some of those delish treats....

Miss 1999 said...

Wow! I wish I lived closer, I'd like to be able to come to the Scrapbook thing! Especially since it's helping the youth to be able to take that awesome trip!

PS: Those cookies looked great!

Steph C said...

Hey darlin', hope you are feeling better today! What kind of cookies are those? I want some! hehe...Massive well wishes to the kids for the event this weekend, sure to be a huge hit with you helping to put it together!

toya said...

that class is going to be great, I love the prototypes, and I can't wait for the reviews..

Amanda said...

I'm kinda freakin out about how CUTE those little books are.....sorry I've been gone a little, just busy and trying to simplify life...NOT! :-)

Dawn said...

I love those books - would you consider a step-by-step blog entry for those of us who live too far from being able to attend your classes. That is a really cool project to work on from one birthday to the next (that's probably how long it would take me!). I STILL haven't watched one episode of LOST - my nephew finds it hard to forgive me for this. I don't know which one to start watching on DVD first - LOST or Gray's Anatomy. Hope you are feeling snot free! xox
