The Full Monty and an Announcement!

Wow! I'm in Charlottetown for the week on training for work with some co-workers. We decided to go see a show at the Confederation Centre while we were here. Turned out that the Full Monty is playing for the summer, so we bought our tickets and tonight was the night! It was soooo good! Those are some very brave boys! Many funny moments with some real human ones too and if the lighting is just right where you're sitting... Full Monty indeed! (Did I mention we were front row center?). I was ill prepared, but highly recommend the show! If you are in the area at all this summer it is well worth going to, you won't be disappointed, it's great! Here's a behind the scenes look from the Confederation Centre's youtube channel:

Also! I can let you know my big news from last week! I won the Archiver's Create-it-by-You Workshop contest!! What does that mean? Well it means that I'll be teaching a workshop at ScrapFest 2011 in the Mall of America, Bloomington MN this coming September 16-18! I am so excited... excited doesn't cover it... stoked might be a little closer! If you're going I'd love to hear from you, I'm gonna need some buddies! Here's a link to the announcement, the project may look a little familiar (with some product tweaking): here

Problem Solved and Huge News!

Woo-Hoo! I finally got that YouTube situation sorted and a really late video explaining the quilt card (from a few days ago) uploaded below.

And I have totally great news! I'm super excited, can you tell?! But I don't know if I'm allowed to share yet or not... I always see stuff like that on other people's blogs and it totally ticks me off cause I want to know right then! (I'm an instant gratification kind of girl!) I gotta say though, I've never had the opportunity to torture before and I'm sad to say, I kinda like it! It's totally fun to be a tease. So you'll have to stay tuned for my super-exciting-to-me-anyway-news! But at least I'm leaving you with a video right?!

OMG I hate Youtube/Google!

I'm not loving youtube and google today... I'm no youtube expert, with one measly video to my name but today I tried to add another... well... if I hadn't been bullied into linking youtube with my gmail, I might have been alright, but oh no... I HAD to follow the directions. Now I have no access to my original youtube account and I somehow ended up with a second channel... How did that happen??!! We'll see if their support is any better at this than the people who set up this rediculous system!

Hopefully I'll have another video to post soon! (there's a video on that quilt card I posted yesterday ready to go... just waiting on youtube!)
