My event Inspiration Unlimited starts today.... so thankful for this event and that Ginger is the best event coordinator ever. She is the most organized girl ever and well we just work well together. We never thought 7 years ago that as we planned the first IU event that EACH year it would sell out and have the waiting list that it has. I know why it sells out. I know that it's MORE than the projects. I know it's because the HEART of all that matters in perserving memories and life is the CORE message that MUST be shared each year.
These darling crafters hear my stories EVERY year. They know that I love each of them. That is why we limit the event to right under 300 students. I want to personally be able to talk and share with each of them. I teach over 18 hours today and tomorrow. Last night we did the meet and greet. I am so uplifted by their love. Did I mention IU is about LOVE and sharing?
Things are ready to go today to have the most inspiring event ever. This is the class workshop that I will be teaching today. It is a MEMORABILIA book. It is 8.5x 11. I adorned it with my Memorabilia chipboard, stitched notebooks and sequins...

Thank you Joey Otlo & Kelli Collins (Bazzill), Vickie Boutin, Sherry Mendoza, Stephanie (Bella Blvd). Pre-IU workshops were a huge hit.
Thankful for a SOLD OUT event every year. I have 2014 teachers ready to announce on Saturday night. If you want to be on the waiting/notification list please email me. I forward it all to Ginger.
Okay... could not sleep again... up at 3am. My mind is racing... so many things always in my head. My husband is home in between chemo treatments. We text all the time. He is my biggest fan. I love him. I miss him. I think he is the bravest man I know. He is doing better (so far) with the chemo #2. It's a day by day thing. I love that my mother in law emails me updates in the day to keep me posted on him. It gives me so much comfort.
This is the text I got several times yesterday from ty-
i love and miss you more than anything you can say think or feel
