Another loooooooooong day

It was another long day at CCC. Stressful, but I can't really get into it. All I wanted was a hug when I came home and my mom was on the phone with my sister and too busy for a hug.
SIGH!
I moped around for awhile and then went into my stamping room. Not a very good day there either, but i finally got a couple of cards made. Here they are... I found this first one is Stampin' Success, the magazine that demonstrators get every month. These ice creams were a NIGHTMARE to make... even with the stamp-a-majig. I was going to use this card for my open house... I THINK not!!!The second card and I were having difficulties making it into a card. I finally found a way to make it look okay. My mojo is fleeting... Wish I had more time to perfect things.... Apparently I should also repaint my stamping table. It looks awful! Yeesh!
If you're ever interested in joining the Stampin' Up family, please feel to email me leanneskitcko@shaw.ca or leave a comment so we can talk more about it. We'll be in this together, I assure you! Another friend would make the swim a little easier as we conquer waves together!
These last two pics are from a golf tournament that I was at on Monday for the horse race track. No, i do not golf. Not even a little. This is Joey, the outrider (don't ask me what that means) and my coworker Lani (the counsellor/chaplain). I heart them both a lot. There is never a dull moment when these two crazy cats are around. Especially when Joey's got his putter! LOL! As you see, my dear friend Lani is expecting... And Joey decided we needed to compare their bellies.This last pic is my boss, who I lovingly call "Giant Man". Brian heads Winner's foundation (the non profit company that I work for at the track) and I wish all bosses were like him. He's my work dad and he always takes care of us!

That's all for today. A little step into some of my multiple lives...

Have a fabulous evening and a wonderful weekend.

See you soon

Love Lea!

Printing headaches...

It was another good day, bad day! I'll spare you most of the details, but I'm glad this week is over. I'm ready for a new one!

I fought with my computer for the better part of three hours designing a business card and the printer decided it didn't want to print it on the precut business card card stock. What a nightmare. I was determined to fix it, but alas, after the waste of many pieces of paper, I gave up and took Jamie and Alanna's advice and went to vistaprint.ca. I highly recommend it. My cards will be here in two weeks!

sigh....

You've Got Mail is on, so I think that's all you're going to get from me tonight. I put in my preorder sans MDS and a few other things I wanted, but I'm over it. There's enough stuff coming this time :). Anyways, it's been a slice. No time for designing tonight, I was fighting with the printer, took Bailey for a walk and then watched a movie. I was going to end with a pic of my pooch but realized that i haven't transferred my pictures over from the old laptop yet.....

Is this day over yet!??!

Pray for me!

Convention Pictures!

I promised some pictures from convention and here they are! Number one is one of the many many display boards. There are some seriously creative people out there! I can only aspire to be as creative as them! As you may be able to see, the boards were organized for the most part due to color. This one is Rich Razzleberry. Such a beautiful color!

I always make something for my two aunts for Christmas. When I saw this one, I knew that my aunts would love it! I took a picture of it so I could get an idea on how to put one together. Look forward to seeing my finished products later on in December! This is my friends all lined up for a wow! swap! You should have heard some of the comments as the girls checked out their cards! Some were really awesome, some were lacking the wow factor.

And last, but not least, the all famous Shelli Gardner and her daughter Sara! Sara is hillarious! I completely loved her sassiness! I'm glad to know that they are sooooooooo very down to earth. Do you see their skirts? They're made with the new designer series fabric in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalogue, which will be available September 1st. Sara took her skirt off at the end of the presentation (she was wearing shorts underneath) and the skirt became a tree skirt for the christmas tree they decorated. Soooooo cute!

So that's a few glimpses of Convention! It was awesome, and it's been difficult coming back to a place where not everybody shares my love of stamping.... sigh

Hope you enjoyed this peak into the world of Convention.
