Thanksgiving Musings

I'm just sitting here, having posted the Cricut post, thinking about how thankful I am for my family and friends - especially Cheryl and Jan. Thank you for our wonderful LSS (local scrapbook store)! And thank you for your friendship and all you do :)

Also, Bev and I are getting ready to change the "scenery" on the store windows again. Make sure you get by the store to check it out after Saturday - and to shop too! ~Mo~

Lights Out Crop!

Just before the crop on Friday, Nov. 14th, a truck hit a light pole in the parking lot and they were going to have to turn the lights out for a while to fix it! Everyone was given the option of staying or not and of course everyone chose to stay :)

Cheryl gathered candles and flashlights so we would be ready when the time came.

The lights were only out for about half an hour. We all had a great time!!!

Nothing stops a scrapper ;P

After the lights were back on we had some entertainment. Dory Hill brought three teenagers with her and they got to singing - so we made them get up and do the motions too. It was too funny, they were great!! Thanks so much girls!

We Won!!

I just received an email from Cricut - we WON the October Swarm Contest!! Our picture will be in this Friday's Cricut Newsletter and we'll be getting prizes too:) Can't remember exactly what, but it will be very exciting!!!

We don't know what happened with the newsletter! It seems to have lines through part of the demos. IGNORE THE LINES - they are not supposed to be there :(
