I have been a bad blogger! I know I have been slacking! Sometimes little things in life keep you busy busy busy. I had some training for work this week and switching to a day shift (I'm a midnighter) was pretty tough. Alarm clocks are NOT my friend! ha ha ha. This was my first class with this instructor and I was very impressed with the passion she had for teaching. She also had us pick secret buddies. So at the beginning of the first day everyone was given a card with some one's name in the class. You had to write down at least 3 positive things about that person and at the end of the last day we each had to get up and tell that person what 3 things we noticed about them. I am a people watcher so it was very interesting to see how many people (myself included) don't easily accept compliments.
In case you are wondering what's new I submitted 6 cards to Papercrafts Magazine. I have about 10 more ready to go, but I am deciding which magazine I want to send them to. Also my good friend Jen and I are starting our Fun Filled Friday blog challenges next week. So keep a watch out for our weekly projects. I am giving the first challenge and it's to use some stamps I got on clearance for $1 at Joann's. They are a little out of norm for us so I can't wait to see what we come up with.
More exciting news Shackapalooza is only 2 weeks away for all you Shackies! Can't wait to meet all of my crafty sistahs that are going. I am still deciding what to bring to work on. I keep telling myself if I plan ahead I won't need to bring as much. But I can't decide what to plan for. In case you didn't notice I'm not so good at planning ahead. I am sure I will bring waaaay too much (as usual). At least we are not flying! So crafty sistahs - how do you pack for crops? How about 3 day crops? Do you plan projects ahead of time or just bring as much as possible? Do you pack more supplies than clothes?
After my training class I decided I need to give more praise and compliments to people. When you give of yourself you get way more in return. So I am trying to think of more ways to give. I would love to help out at a senior center, or with rescued animals - guess I should look into that! So tell me - How do you give of yourself? Have you told someone how much you appreciate them lately? How do you handle compliments? And please any packing advise - :)
Thanks for visiting all you beautiful bloggers!
