My "Mommy" Time


When Matthew naps I could think of a million things I want to get done….but I'd rather take a nap with him. Or sit next to him on the couch and watch “Yo Gabba Gabba” with him. Play with his feet, play with his toys, talk to him. I guess I'm just enjoying being a mom more this time around because I know we aren't going to have any more kidlets after he and Katie.

Anyways, now that he is awake, I decided to get up and blog! Nothing like trying to blog with a toddler trying to turn the computer off in between keystrokes.

After months of talking, emailing and phone tag, I finally got a class scheduled at IAT!! Make that TWO classes!! Woohoo! It's just one of those things, where since I am far from the store, they were really busy, you know how it is…but now it is happening! I am so excited. Mel and all the staff there are awesome, the new store is super cute, PLUS I get to work on promoting Scrapbook Royalty more so it is just perfect timing. I had a blast there at NSD and any time WhoGAS has cropped there so I can't wait to get back. Here are some sneak peeks of my classes coming up at the end of the month (the full samples are on display at the store):
