So much to say!

Oh boy has it been a crazy couple weeks for us! Ok so let me just start by updating you on Mom...She is doing SO much better! Getting around with out any assistance & her mental state has been great! Her doctor is in the process of moving her on to the transplant list which is a big deal since before he wasn't sure she would even make it long enough to get one. I know that it is God at work through all of the prayers that you have sent up for us, we are truly truly grateful! Next on the update list is our family vacation! We had my uncle come stay with Mom so we could take the kids on a 4 day cruise (Nice & Relaxing!) then a couple weeks before the cruise SU announced the first ever Regional Event at the home office...Now I did give my hubby the chance to shoot me down & say I was completely out of mind for wanting to spend 12 hours (each way!) in the car with 3 small kids just to get stuff a few days early but he didn't so we ran off the ship on Friday & headed straight for SLC. The girls were perfect the whole way.=)
SU really had me hooked when they said we would be the first demos to receive the New Catalog & Shop for new stuff! I came home with a bunch of fabulous stuff & best of all got to see whats coming in the new catalog!!!
Oh yes before I forget to mention my other wonderful news... As soon as we got in to our room on the ship I got an email saying I was chosen as a display board stamper for the 2013 Convention! I totally jumped up & down on the bed...fam thought I had won the lottery or something. LOL! Now I really can't wait for Convention! I booked my flight a few weeks back & registration opened while the ship was docked on Catalina Island which worked perfect since we were able to get Wi Fi there. Plus I get to room with one of my favorite people ever, the super talented Lynda Lee & hang out with some of my other fabulous stamping friends from our Stamp n Chat group! Hopefully there will be at least 5 of us going!

Ok enough about me how about a bit of fun for you...SU has a bunch of stuff on SALE!

Remeber most things are while supplies last.

While I was away my Paper Pumpkin kit arrived & I wasn't able to play with it til now but its so Fun! I am getting ready for this Friday's Paper Pumpkin Night! (Click here for details)

Still have a ton of stuff to do to get the house in order after being gone so long so I better go get to it...=)


  1. Mercedes, it was so nice running into you and I am so glad that your Mom is doing better! Glad you had fun Saturday, I know I did!

  2. Mercedes,
    So very happy to hear the news about your Mom. Also, glad that happy things are coming your way. That's some kind of wonderful husband you have there! Can't wait to see your creations at convention.
    God bless,

  3. Mercedes, I LOVE this rendition of the Paper Pumpkin! How very cute! I just may have to "case" this for my customers. :-) Thank you!
