I'm going to Texas...

In nine days, I'm flying down to San Antonio for a weekend of scrappping goodness courtesy of Fiskars!! I got my hand-made luggage tag yesterday as well as a final check-list...I can't believe it's happening so soon!

When I got the email last month, it was literally the day of Dad's heart surgery. That had been a BAD week and I initially thought the email was a cruel joke. So I emailed and then called one of the lead Fiskateers (a Fiskars brand ambassador) and found out it was for real. Out of the 2400+ Fiskateers, I was chosen to go to Texas for a weekend training session - all expenses paid! It still seems hard to believe!

Once I'm trained, I'll get to demonstrate Fiskars products at various craft stores and expos. What a fun job! I'll also get to teach others how to become Fiskars demonstrators (if anyone is interested, training will be in Chambersburg in February).

The 50 gals that were chosen to go are doing a tag swap...I'm STILL working on mine. I am just not an assembly-line scrapper, so I have to force myself to work on these. Hopefully I'll get them done this weekend. Otherwise I'll finish them on the plane if I have to!!

If anyone is not yet a Fiskateer (and is a crafty sort of person) check out their site: http://www.fiskateers.com.

In other news, there is some very cool happenings at Scrap-Diner coming next month. I'll be posting the exciting news next week!!
