I'm home from CKU Nashville.
I have NEVER had a more meaningful experience.... I taught a very fast paced class- I SHARED from my heart and it was emotional at times-
some photos- teaching how to use my file folders with the bind it all- I LOVED getting to know my new friends- to make those heart felt connections...
Jamie, Beth, ME, Elizabeth, Debbie, Margie and Trina- okay...these ladies are my friends and I am so HONORED to teach in their midst. We were cheering on the girls as they came into the CKU event opening ceremony.
As always.... TIM is the KING of CKU- yes, a dorm did a OVER THE TOP- ELVIS inspired TIM poster. I think it is hilarious. Tim is the best MC and gets the women excited!!!!! Thanks to Tim I am stocked up big time with glossy accents and now have his MINI ATTACHER (stapler). I have to say it's MY all time FAVE staper and I LOVE it! LOVE it....
I LOVE this girl...seriously, I can't tell you how much LIFE she brings to CKU. She has a GIFT. One that SHINES and makes people want to be around her. I have had the pleasure to know her for years, but it has only been in this past year that we became closer and got to spend quality time together. She makes me laugh and she is just one talented girl. She also started her own company... so please check it out: The GIRLS LOFT
I brought a "few" samples of projects from my product lines. The always look better in person than on the blog...wink!
sorry- these photos are all unedited and well- I'm doing good to even blog tonight. ha! I was giving away some COOL prizes at the event commencement. I LOVE this part!!!!
I seriously HAVE no idea what Margie is doing here- but she is a FUNNY girl! I wanted to mention Trina (far left) she is from PIGGY TALES...and well- we jsut connected and I've made a NEW wonderful friend. Her heart is GOLDEN... such a wonderful person!!!!!
Kit and her darling daughter from Scrap Happy Sisters store in AZ...I am working on going to their darling store to teach.... YES- at the end of the event we were tired...but happy.... will miss ALL my friends from CKU-
If your interested CKU PROVO is around the corner...August 2009 in Provo UTAH. I know this one is going to be over the top!!!!
THANK YOU to all my students at CKU- we shared didn't we????, my wonderful assistants who I could not have done it without, Rosemary- you have got to be the nicest woman ever! Thanks for the ride, to everyone at Scrappacino (Lola, Kathy and my amazing NEW friends) it was a night full of FUN, thank you to Ken and Product Performers who SERIOUSLY are the best distributors in the world. They shipped and packed so many boxes, class kits and are my corner supporting me 1,000% in this partnership. CKU staff AMAZING...and I appreciate all that Paula does to make CKU happen. I taught at my first CKU five years ago- wow!!!!! I have to end by thanking Jamie Harper my friend and marketing director for TC. I COULD NOT have done it without her. She worked nonstop and took on the role of photo taker, assistant, shipper, sales, etc. YOU name it- she did it. She allowed me to focus on teaching and took care of so many details. I love you and want you to know I appreciate so much all that you do- I think I just gave a speech....sorry! I just feel a heart full of deep apprecation.
Now off to spend some time with my husband...love and missed him!
