I couldn't resist it! I've been checking the Digi Chick boutique almost daily to see when Mindy Terasawa's "sweeties" would be back in stock....and yesterday, they were!

I've sent off my form, and should hopefully see my custom sweetie back to me within a week or so, but since we've got a holiday tomorrow, it could go longer.

In the meantime, I also picked up this adorable calendar kit by Christy Lyle:

Tomorrow, it's off to do the "two dinner" drive around town. Sigh. Get up, pack up everything, drive from home to my parents' house, stay until 2 p.m., drive to his parents' house, arrive at 3 p.m., stay until 6 p.m., drive 90 minutes back home. Ugh. We made sure to fill up the tank on our way home today, didn't want to be caught without enough gas to go everywhere on a day when few gas stations are likely to be open.

I took part of a class from Karen Russell yesterday. I say part because I had assumed (wrongly) that the class would end by 12:30 p.m. (it started at 10:30 a.m.), but when she arrived, she said it would take 3.5 hours and end at 2 p.m.! Wow! Unfortunately, my husband and I were meeting a friend from Seattle at the Saturday Market at 1:30 p.m.......

I didn't even get the first project done in class - but I will finish it so I can post it here. It uses foam core, which is why the first project takes so long.

Continuing with my theme of getting "famous" scrapbookers posing with their book, I now have a picture of Karen with her book Totally Transparencies.

I'm officially "in print" and published. I just got my copy of the fall issue of Digital Scrapbooking magazine, and there I am, on page 15 (the Digital Debut section). I'm so excited, I took the magazine to work and bragged on it to everyone, even those who have no idea I scrapbook (much less digitally). Poor folks!

I'm looking forward to the day I can actually post the layout, so folks other than subscribers can see it. :)

Gotta pass on this quiz link! I'll update for real later this evening!

You scored 46% Sociability and 41% Sophistication!
You are comfortable around others. While you don't have to go out every night, yet you take pride in being easy to get along with. This should not, however, be misconstrued as believing (as many do) that you are without subtlety. In fact, you have the power to inform the anal retentive that, indeed, they are discussing an anal-retentive issue. Who else can do that? Quotation marks intimidate you a little bit.
