6.2.07



Merry Christmas!

Ok, yeah, I'm sort of weird. But it's June. And June marks the 1/2 way mark to Christmas.
And it's the month when I get my Christmas planning notebook ready.
And it's the month when Hobby Lobby starts clearing shelves for Christmas decorations. (crazy, huh?)

And now...it's the month that I just registered for Silver Bella!

From the Bella website: The most unique Paper Arts and Crafts Event of the Year featuring 9 of the country's favorite instructors tempting you with over 25 shabby, artsy, and trendsetting classes!

Already have the hotel (thank you, Jana!), the roommates, and the flights booked! Teresa's blog says the event is 80% full. Wow! I am giddy with excitement about crafting, shopping, junking, and glittering with some of my favorite creative, inspirational ladies.

And yes, I just listened to Christmas music while I wrote this blog post.
Sue me...it's 90 degrees! :D

Blessings,
Jennifer

I'm going too!! My mom and I are sharing a room and I am so excited I can hardly stand it. I was so afraid we wouldn't be able to get in this morning! I thought it would be as bad as trying to register for CKU. Thank goodness it wasn't!

I'd love to meet you when we're there--I'll keep a lookout for your cute curly hair! :)

Hooray! I'll be looking forward to meeting you at Silverbella! I listen to Christmas music in the summer too....my family just rolls their eyes...
They just don't get it!

Totally loving that photo. Awesome!! So glad you are coming to Silver Bella!

You know what? I think this is such a great idea! I think that I will start my planner this month as well. I usually wait until about September, but am already half-crazed at that point! I'm taking a cue from you and starting early this year - 90 degrees out and all! :o)

I am thinking Christmas too, it does take some time and planning!

I was a bit late on the Omaha room, didn't get the group rate, but at least got a room there! See you then.
