Good afternoon fellow crafters!!
Things have been a little crazy in The Art Lounge since the new year and from the looks of things...
I don't see many changes in sight!! LOL!!
Sooooo...I thought I'd just roll with it and send out a quick note while I work on the newsletter which is coming soon!!
Thank you for your patience!! I truly appreciate it!!

This is a quick invite for YOU to join me in a scrapbook yard sale!!
WAHHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
I participated in an awesome SU! team event a couple of weeks ago and
I know there were a few of you ladies who also wanted to join in the fun but weren't able to due to scheduling soooo....
I thought I would host an event so we could all play!!

There are a couple of ways to participate...

As a vendor...
Time for some Spring cleaning!!!
PLease contact me for your personal number which you will use to label and price your items

The money raised from the sale of your items will be credited to your Stampin Up order!!
And what a great time to order!! A brand new spring catty chock full of goodies PLUS it's SALE-A-BRATION TIME!!
Your orders must be placed by March 20th and with every $60 you will be able to choose a FREE ITEM from our sale-a-bration catty!!
So for example if you sell $60 worth of your gently used scrapbook supplies, you will have $60 of credit to spend on BRAND NEW Stampin Up from either the annual catalogue or the new spring mini!!

Seriously...is it ME????

So....in the big kerfluffle to get the girls ready for school, Cate was adamant that she NEEDED a new phone...and so the hunt began...OY!!
All summer long she wanted a blackberry...needs a blackberry...gotta have a blackberry...

After 3 minutes at the first cell phone place, the guy had her talked into an android phone...go figure!! LOL!!
Well...after a couple of veeeery looooong days (who knew there were so many phone places at the mall!!) she finally decided on a ridiculously expensive Samsung Galaxy something or other and she absolutely loves it!!! Thank goodness!!

As we were walking around, I kept pulling out my "relic" of a phone, as my sweet uncle calls it, out of my pocket...and I admit...the thought of a new phone was sounding pretty good to me...but there was nothing wrong with it so no sense in spending money when I didn't have to...
My phone is pretty old in cell phone years...
but I am comfortable with it...
actually Cate says I text more than she does and I think she could be right...

and then came a sign...

My touch screen totally crapped out!!
This was my chance to get something pretty and sexy!!!
I picked out an android phone (ok...I'm not gonna lie...I was playing with one and the feature that totally sold me was a flashlight app that I was giddy over...don't ask me why!! LOL!!) I had it all charged and set up by the guys that know what they are doing, my plan upgraded, a cute case all picked out and installed...
I'm good to go home and start playing with my new toy...

and then it died and I now can't even get it to turn on at all...like AT ALL!!! Nothing!!

I think I'm beginning to get a bit of a complex...
technology just isn't that into me!! LOL!!
I have no idea what I've done or if it's me at all...
but I am learning that I wildly addicted to my phone...
it's my connection to my kids, my family and friends, my customers and that handy alarm clock makes sure I don't lose track of time like I tend to do when I'm playing or chatting!! LOL!!

The silver lining....
I'm going home to play with some rubber and ink!!
At least that never lets me down!! LOL!!
But the point of this very loooong story is to let you know that if you are trying to reach me by my cell...I am temporarily (I hope) unavailable until the geek squad can bail me out!! My apologies!!

Talk, text or email with y'all soon!! ....I hope!!
Create a beautiful day!!
WAHHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
