Now if you don't know me personally and you are not familer with my life goals, this will not be that big of a deal to you. But to me...to ME this is big...this is HUGE! After five years contracting at one of the biggest chemical companies in the world, I have been offered a perminent position with the company. To put this in perspective, this is like a computer geek being offered a job at Microsoft. This is like a model getting an offer from the Ford Model agency. Like a designer getting a gig at GUCCI. You get it...right? So yeah, granted it's not my "dream" job, but it is a foot in the door to a big global company that will put me on the fast track to success. Sounds cheesy I know, but it's true. I mean at 29 years old, this is the time in my life when I need to get serious about a career...not just a J-O-B. Sooooooo as you can imagine, I'm uber excited about this opportunity and can't wait to see what the future holds. I thought once I achieved this goal that I would not have anything left to strive for in my "day job" goals but as soon as I found out that I had gotten the job my mind began to race about the future and what my next goal and my next career move will be. Ok, I'm done. I'm off to pinch myself now.

Dinner with they hubby, Christina Padilla, Allison Kreft (Hambly), Kei-Mai (FontWerks), Stacey Fike and Kristi Contes. So much fun. We missed ya Marci! Oh and CP...sorry you got a shrimp in your eye! LOL! Damn that was some good food that night!
OH-MY-GAWD! Birmingham. *sigh* I had a blast! Meet some amazing people, made some killer projects, added "Clearly." "Wicked" & "Seriously." to my vocabulary catch words (Thanks Kristi & Stacey), had sushi, had habatci, laughed, cried, scrapped, got a cool Hambly t-shirt and an even cooler glass pendant THE Hambly designer herself, not only did I get to see a special feature of "Scrapped" at the theater but I got to hang out with the creater himself (hi Wess!), had dinner with the Hambly girls, hung out with Kie-Mai from Fontwerks, meet Jenni Bowlin, Stacey Juillian, Allison Tyler Jones, Heather Prickle from A2Z, Kelli Crowe.
So to sum in up...
Hambly girls are the coolest
Scrapped Movie guy is hillarious
Jennie Bowlin is the sweetest
Sushi is better with Soy wraps
Habatchi frightens KC
Kelli Crowe is a hoot
Love me some old school photo booth pictures
My husband = Derick Zoolander
Make & Takes are hard work with 300+ women
Rave + Scrapbooking = Kick A good time!
Ok, so...my camera died and I missed some awesome photo ops so if you have a picture of me or my darling little one during the event, please, PLEASE e-mail me!

Oh yeah! The Scrap Etc. event is only a week away and I am dying with excitement. I went back and pulled out my little mini book I did from last year and admired it and pondered what I should do for this year's event. Above is a slide show of the book (Before I added the pictures when I got home). Now I have to decide if I should add on to this yummy little book or make a whole new one. AND I only have a week to make it, print my pictures for the classes, gather my supplies, pack, finish my goodie bags, complete my online Glympes class by Stacey Juillian, and more stuff I'm sure I am forgetting! YIKES! I better get crack-a-lackin'! LOL!
