so fun!

I had such a good morning!
We finally got to view the final versions of all the ‘CREATIVE ESCAPE’ class projects.
Dang.
Good stuff!
I am thrilled..
The coolest thing about the format of this event… is that we have been able to plan the event as a whole. We have been able to give direction and create a unique set of classes, that all bring something different to the table.  You know that it is so hard for me to keep secrets… but I am being SO GOOD!!! I did get to share some of the secrets with some of the teachers today… and got to see their reactions… so that helped!!
Those of you who are signed up… and those of you who snatch up the last 80 or so spots will NOT be sorry! We are going to have a blast..

I am photographing the components for each class project, as well as posting the class descriptions around the beginning of next week.  So you can get a little feel for what is going on… as we get closer, we’ll post photo requirements and supply lists…etc.
So exciting!  But we really want there to be a WOW factor as you see the class projects for the first time! they are soo fuN!

I keep thinking that I am going to have a chance to get caught up… and then more stuff keeps popping up. We have to finish our CHA summer catalog by next Monday… I can’t even believe it’s catalog time already! I have wised up a bit, and enlisted a few talented ladies to help me make samples for the catalog and show. I have been looking at their samples, and it’s just making me want to scrapbook. It’s been so fun to have them email in their pages… and see the clever uses they are incorporating with the new products.  I am really trying to get the WEBSITE and NEWSLETTER updated and under control. Unfortunately, these things keep taking a backseat. Not good! Hopefully I can make that happen!

So… it’s past my kids bedtime, and they are still up… I am putting myself to bed early and hopefully going to have a fabulously productive day tomorrow… night.

    I’m laughing at your comment that you thought you’d get a chance to get “caught up”, but stuff keeps coming your way. “Caught up” goes out the window once you start scrapbooking, in the same way that “normal” (as in, “when things return to normal…”) goes out the window once you have kids. “Caught up” and “normal” are history! This is it, baby, and isn’t the day-to-day ride a blast? A sleep-deprived, messy, giggly, hair-pulling-out, noisy, huggable, busy, crazy blast?

    Well I finally did it – I am signed up – couldn’t miss it after the incredible SHE experience in 2005 – now I just have to save pennies and watch for cheap flights from Australia to Arizona!!!!
    Can’t wait….everything looks amazing, the event, the resort!!! WOW!!!!! Counting days!!! Thank you Heidi!!!

    Thanks for all your hard work. I’ll be attending alone as none of my friends have the money soooo I was wondering if there will be a yahoo group or dorms or something so I can be a part of some smaller group???

    Thanks so much for all the work and effort that’s going into this event. Me and my friend Sylvia signed up. This will be such a great opportunity for us to “get away” from our regular lives and just relax together. We’re registerd, have our hotel booked and our plane tickets bought. We just can’t wait! I’ve never been to anything like this. We were registered for CKU this month in San Jose and decided to go to Creative Escape instead. This sounded much more like our style rather than the rah rah school dorm environment of the CKU. See you in September!
