I am off to Manhattan Beach, CA in the morning. It is the first INSPIRED JOURNEY (MINI event) that I am doing with Ginger. She has been the event coordinator for Inspiration Unlimited - for FIVE YEARS!!! This is our first SMALLER event. We decided to host the event in California to change things up a bit. It makes me super happy that it's finally here and that it sold out as well. We actually OVERSOLD out and then normally you have a few cancellations due to life and circumstances, so we are good now. We were stressed trying to figure out how to fit in 8 extra bodies. Things always have a way of working out!
My heart is very full for this opportunity. It's truly what I love. I enjoy spending time with other's (my friends) who love crafting and documenting as much as I do. It helps me feel inspired in so many ways. I only slept one hour last night. So many things on my mind and I could not wind down and go to sleep. Too many new lines in my head. This is always a problem with me. ha! I had to be up at 5 am anyway. I am going once a week to the Salt Lake Temple to do sessions. I go early so that I can get home before it's time to take the kids to school. It is just what I need each week in my crazy busy life!!!!
Today I have a meeting with Provo Craft and shopping for last minute trip necessities. I love my Spanx tights but I ripped them. I love the support. If you have not tried Spanx- I love them. I love the support and they are great for my veins- aka- they hide them! I have my little vein surgery NEXT MONTH. Yes, I am on the fence with this one- excited to take care of the "little problem vein" but not looking forward to having the surgery again. I am nervous to do it again.
So for the next few days until Sunday- I will be with Gentry ( she is a great helper!) in Calfornia.
The event will take place here.
This looks nice! However, I never have time to swim or relax too much at the events.
Tomorrow once we land we are headed to the beach...
Gentry really wanted to go to the ocean before the event starts and it gets busy. Maybe we will even get to shop a little tomorrow. You never know what to expect and how things will run so often there is no sightseeing.
I have to thank GINGER for once again coordinating and keeping me organized. She is so focused on details and get's things done. I love her and am thankful that she is so good at what she does. It's kind of scary to do a new event. It's a new "baby" for us. I am so appreciative for those of you who signed up- thankful for a sold out event. That reminds me- we do not advertise either event. In order to come, you would email Ginger or I to be put on the list for Inspiration Unlimited or Inspired Journey. We added this second mini event, because Inspiration Unlimited has been SOLD OUT for five straight years upon sign up day. I know so crazy!!!! It's a crazy good and we try hard to get as many in as we can. If you would like to come someday email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you and make sure you are added to the list.
To me these events are much more than crafting... it's a time for girls (or men) to come and RELAX, enjoy GIRL TIME, connect, SHOP, be inspired and make new friends. Okay... time to get busy.
