Today I received my first kit from Jenni Bowlin Studio...so exciting! It's an online papercrafting/scrapbooking kit website that ships beautiful kits to your doorstep each month. I love how everything is from seperate product lines, but coordinate so well together...they take the guess work out if it and just allow you to create.
Above shows the kit I received today and the online ideas are shown below for this month's kit on the website...I'm addicted!

Here's a photo of me back in 2003 with the founder/owner of Stampin' Up! Shelli Gartner...a great mentor!
And this is me & my upline Deb, also a great connection...without her, I would be oblivious to stamping.

The food was great...especially dessert. Adam & Jenny did a fabulous job.

Did anyone watch Oprah today...it was a goodie. Bono (from U2...I admire this guy) unveiled one of his biggest ideas yet—(RED)™! It's a revolutionary program designed to eliminate AIDS in Africa. Not everybody has the time to be an activist or put on their marching boots...so now you can shop to save lives! Go to JoinRed.com to find out how you can shop & support a good cause.
I want one of these! So stylin'

To make this Thursday extra special, I was extremely productive today: got a whole lot of laundry done...and Scarlett helped (while Ace was napping), answered a zillion emails that have been sitting in my inbox, picked up a movie from Blockbuster to watch on the weekend (click for a coupon), made a new chicken casserole that our family enjoyed & got a start on my fall stamp-class schedule (should be out tomorrow). It was a good day as far as I'm concerned!
Little laundry helper Scarlett

Rose & Phil preparing dinner
Autumn & Scarlett
Our Thanksgiving long weekend was spent in Red Deer with Cory's family. We traveled up there on Saturday morning with Cory's brother Mark and his daughter Autumn. Cory & Mark helped replace some windows in Cory's Mom & Phil's house. We had supper that evening at a Red Deer resturant and stayed overnight in a hotel where the kids enjoyed the swimming pool. Sunday morning we headed to the Hansen's new home in Red Deer where we had a great visit. Cory's Mom & Phil put on a great Thanksgiving supper that afternoon. It was great to see Phil's sister Vicky & her husband Glen for supper as well. We all left that evening well fed...some could say stuffed!

I demonstrated on Sunday at Kelly S's house for a Stampin' Up! workshop. These are the projects I demonstrated and the ladies got to make & take the snowflake card. I had a great time meeting everyone and showing them all a little stamping. Thanks Kelly for hosting a great party!
