. . . What a total BLAST!!!!!!!  Every time I go to Precious Memories it is non-stop FUN!  It is such an exciting store–they always have the newest fun treasures out there in the paper crafting world, and the girls there, well, they are just peaches!  They help make everything go so smoothly!

Now, I am chaffing quite a bit that I totally spaced bringin’ the camera out of the car!  How’s that for a moron?! AUGH!!!!  My problem?  I get so *caught up* in the rubbah, and chatting with everyone, that I just obliterate everything else from my head.  AUGH!

I met so many lovely, LOVELY, people! (bouncing!) And a number of people who’ve taken classes before when I was up the last time came, too, and I was so thrilled to see them again!  I hope everybody will forgive me if I invaded their personal space unexpectedly–I’m afraid I have a wicked habit of grabbing folks up in a bear hug . . . (flushing crimson)

One gal taught us the coolest little trick we jokingly dubbed "The Two Finger Bow", although, since I"m always alone in my studio, I think I need to get the gizmo thing-a-ma-bobby itself or I’ll find myself in dire straights–I’m all thumbs when it comes to bows, I’m afraid.  At any rate, I thought it was just sooooo smart!  Clever girl!

Evidently Hershey Kisses filled with coconut or caramel are an elusive product up there in Canada?!  So, we had plenty of stampin’, chocolate, and laughs!   Thank you to all of you that participated in the classes–such a pleasure! I hope everybody had as much fun as I did–I just get so super-charged at these classes!!!

GINORMOUS CYBER HUGS!!!!!!

The trip was also special because I got to meet Lisa Strahl in person–a.k.a. Mona Lisa, to many on Splitcoast.  Her blog is linked over here in the left menu bar.  An extraordinary artist, with tremendous insight, we met in person for the first time, and yakked all things rubbah-related for HOURS! Eeeek–I’m afraid we could have gabbed on and on for quite some time over our sinfully yummy caramel appletinis!  YES!!!!  I believe I have assimilated yet another into the ‘tini borg! Heh, heh, heh! 

Oh, man, she CRACKED me!  I noticed she had nose bling.  And, I sat, hesitating, not wanting to offend . . .  pondering, "Is it indeed real, or . . .? " 

NOT!!!!  Total giggle fits!  She had brought some extra A Muse Micro Twinkle Stickers and *blinged* me, and the waitress graciously took our photo, appletinis in hand!

I know, we didn’t angle our noses for proper nose bling photography, but trust me:  we be blinged!!!!  (chuckling!)  What goofballs, eh?!

What a fabulous weekend!  Good times, good times! (happy sigh)
