Exciting Seminar 2009!!

I had an absolute blast this past weekend! It was so great to catch up with my fellow Angel friends, swap cards and ideas, and just forget about the daily grind at the office! It seemed to just fly by, and definitely ended way too soon :)

Good news #1: I've got the new Inspiration Book and Catalogue in my hands!! In fact, I have several boxes of them! If you are interested in getting one, let me know via email and we'll exchange information! The cost is $5 plus shipping, but you will get your $5 back with your first order from me!! And my 'regulars' {whoa... that sounds kinda funny... if you know what I'm sayin' :) } get one free!

Good news #2: I was asked to submit work to possibly be included in the new catty, and I've got three cards and a door hanger project that made the cut! TAC will even have a free downloadable template on their website soon to make it easy-peasy to re-create the door hanger!
I am so honored! In case you are curious, my creations occur on pages 41, 69, 87, and on the inside back cover!

Good news #3: I was able to put real faces to the webbie avatars of so many wonderful ladies! It makes the world seem a little smaller when you can talk face-to-face with someone you've never 'met' before. With the whirl-wind of activity, I hope I was able to meet most of the attendees... if not, there is always next year!!

Good news #4: I still cannot believe it, but I was one of the recipients of The Angel Award. What makes this so special? Well, instead of being selected by the corporate office, recipients have been nominated and chosen by fellow Angel demonstrators!

I cannot express how honored and truly touched I am. I did not cry! But I did choke up a bit :) And we all know how I just LOVE being in the spotlight {insert panic attack here} and getting my picture taken {insert heart palpitations and dilating eyes here}. So now I am truly a princess... yep, I've got the tiara :)

I want to thank all of my kind & wonderful Angel friends for nominating me... you truly are angels :)

BTW... to all of my loyal and awesome commentors... I'm so sorry I haven't returned the favor, but this past week and current week are crazy!! I promise to pick up the slack soon!!!

Barb, Shirley had the same thing to say about putting names and faces together. I think I'm going to have to either become an angel or go as a friend next year so I can meet all of you too!

BIG CONGRATS on your award, and your publications! You are amazing, and kind and sweet, and I'm not a bit surprised! I am very happy for you!!!! YIPPEE!!! I'm proud that you didn't cry...!!! (and I feel exACTly the same way about having my picture taken!) Have a wonderful day - off to work (my very last ever day off to work!) I go!!!
