Kindle

I just have to share my latest & greatest!!  Have you heard of the Amazon Kindle?  If not, please google it :) I could go on & on for hours about it ...but googling it will give you all the details you need.

If you read like myself...anywhere from 3 to 5 books a week and you usually purchase those books....you need the Kindle!!

We are trying to weed out the extras in our house and Dave continues to remind me that I need to scale back my books...I was faced with a dilemma!  But, how can I give away my books....especially when I can re read them 4 or 5 years later?

So, the answer to that is the Amazon Kindle.  It can hold up to 1500 books and here's a picture of it...
So far I've read five books on it and I love it!!
Gotta run ....busy day ahead :)

A month later.....

Wow...I can't believe it's been a whole month since I posted.   Time sure flies by fast!!!

So much has happened in the past month....seriously I could write a book.

Convention was just amazing!!!   How can I....be #5 Demo of the Year with Stampin' Up!....or #1 in Senior Associate Promotions...or #4 in Sales.......in the whole entire company? 

 It's just so weird....all these years I've gone to Convention....first with Creative Memories and now with Stampin' Up! and I never really thought I would ever be on stage for sales, recruiting or demo of the year.  Some days I want so badly to call all my old roommates and say "oh my gosh I did it".   But, that would be bragging and I'm not that kind of person.

It's been such an amazing year & I'm so happy that I could show Brook, Chase & Dave that once I set my mind on something....I could make it happen.  All these years I've tried one home based business after another and although I feel in love with Scrapbooking first.....my heart lies with making darling 3D objects.

  That's the reason I joined Stampin' Up! and the reason I'm still an active demonstrator.  October 30th will be my 7th anniversary with Stampin' Up! and I'll never forget the day I went to Sandra's house and she showed me how to stamp & emboss.  I can't believe I didn't try it sooner!!!  Someone should have twisted my arm and made me go to a Stampin' Up! workshop!!!

Well, enough about business.   It's finally September!!!  The month we've been anxiously waiting for.....no news yet....but everyday I pray for good news.   I've been on pins & needles since Feb. and just a few more weeks and hopefully we'll know more.   Each day I get more & more nervous....as Kim said earlier today.....Pray!  I trust that God has a plan...speaking of  ......have you heard that song that says "God is great....Beer is good and People are Crazy"?  that is sooo true (well, except ....I hate beer...yuk!!).

See ya!
