Busy, Busy

I have been wanting to post for a couple of days now, but my computer monitor went out. Very frustrating. Anyway, just wanted to thank everyone for the sweet comments and emails about my layouts. Thanks!
I have been busy getting ready for the Inspired Event by packing up lots of kits to sell. (I hope they will all fit in my vehicle!) You should see the sea of pink bakery boxes at my house! lol I haven't started packing the class kits yet even though Jenni Bowlin sent me the product last week. I am so happy that she agreed to sponsor my class. She has been so generous. I love her style and I LOVE her products! Last October, I made a visit to her home in TN. to pick up this antique table:

(Forgive the poor pic. I am not on my computer to do editing!) My hubby and I made a weekend trip of it for our anniversary and I just loved it even more when we got it home because it was the perfect height to stand at when cutting out images from my Cricut and Sizzix. It also was perfect for my three Pottery Barn boxes I found on clearance that holds my acrylic stamps sets. Also, I can display layouts on the top of the table, under the plexi glass. (Sorry I didn't take a pic of that) I am having fun changing out layouts every week or so.

The table was not the only thing that was cool. Jenni was so sweet when we were there. She let me take a tour of her studio, which by the way was AMAZING. Do you ever feel really good about your space and then see someone else's and, mine sucks. LOL That is what I was thinking. Also, she let me in on some hot spots around town including Scarlett Scales, a local antique shop that I thought I would die when I walked in. lol It was so "me" and they were getting ready to close and the lady let me wonder around as long as I wanted. Very that southern hospitality. Anyway, I scored some good stuff....That will be a later post.

Okay, enough rambling. Happy Friday...I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
