I am sad that my vacation from work is about over. Only 2 days left. :-( I didn't do everything I was planning because the weather has turned cooler. We have been getting in the 30's at night! Yikes! I really dislike winter.
Saturday was my LSS's 6th b-day celebration. It was a great time as it always is at my LSS. :-) They were opening at 9am which is quite early in my book! The first 350 people got a number as you walked in the door which got you a tote bag. The first 200 got more free stuff and then the next 150 got a little less. I wasn't feeling very good when I woke up so I was being a little sluggish getting ready. My plan was to be their around 0830. I ended up showing up at 0905 and was number 203. I was just glad that I was one of the first 350 people! :-)
Then I walked into the store and you could hardly move! I saw my friends car parked outside so I was trying to locate her. All the LSS regulars that I am used to seeing were their. One told me where i needed to go to get my Fiskateers goodies. Then I stood in line for the make-n-take with the fiskateer ladies. The make-n-take book was cute and used the unibind system. I would love to have the unibind system. My friend had done some shopping and was in line. I went to go talk to her for a bit and then I went back outside where it was calmer! Since they handed out numbers, I was able to come back and shop later. I ended up storing my number in my bra! I about lost it with it being in my pocket. It was in a safe place then!
Afterwards, I ran back home real quick. I realized I had forgotten to put my watch on and it was bugging me. Then I went to a friends house as a bunch of us was meeting up to scrapbook the day away! Their was 7 of us all together. I was the only one who got into a class at the LSS for that day. I tried to get into the class when they first opened up registration. Working nights, by the time I woke up and realized registration was open, it was to late. I was added to a waiting list. I was surprised that they called me in October for a spot in the class! I originally turned it down as my friends were all going to an all day scrap event and I signed up too. It got cancelled so I was lucky that I got a spot!
The store was much calmer when I went back. I did a little shopping and then went to my class. I got some fun goodies in my tote bag! Then after my class, I went back to my friends house and scrapbooked a little longer. We ended up wrapping the night up around 8pm. We have talked about getting together more often and scrapping.
I meet all the ladies I scrapped with at an all day crop. I went to the crop by myself and I was seated with these ladies. It turned out we work for the same hospital. One of the girls, I kept running into at various scrapbooking & photography events. I have gained more friends since I started scrapbooking! I just love it.
