What I Did While I Was In Utah

I'm finally home and back from Utah.....it was a wonderful trip and great to see old friends. I went for more then that though....I went to check everything that I can't seem to find here in California.....boy have I been missing out. My first stop was Hobby Lobby (It took two trips) The first trip was short, only 30 minutes but the second trip lasted much longer.....lets just say I know the store backwards and forwards now. They had some great deals that you will get to see in my second video. The second place I got to go was the Scrapbook Expo and they too had so great deals...the best I think was DCWV...they had their own booth and way discounted paper packs. Then we went to Roberts crafts...now Roberts crafts was nice but they didn't deals I had hoped...I did find a couple of things that I just couldn't live without....but it wasn't my favorite store. My last stop on trip was to Riverton, Utah and for all you stamper you know what is there.....yes Stampin' Up Headquarters.....and as many of you know I recently became a Stampin' Up demonstrator.....so it was really cool to see where it all comes from. It was a jam packed filled little vacation filled with lots of fun...I will have another video for you maybe later tonight or tomorrow....Have a great night!!!

Today we are off to Utah....We are going to spend some time with our friend Pete. Dean is going for the fun of hanging out with his friend, secretly I am going so that I can go to the craft stores that they don't have in California. Is that wrong? I love our friends and will have a great time with them, but can't help but think about all of those store just waiting for me to enter.....Hobby Lobby.....Roberts Crafts....These are just two that I know of if anyone knows of any other store PLEASE just let me know.....PLEASE!! I know they would love for me to check them out...lol

I Got My Bottle!!!!

I don't even know where to begin.....At first I wasn't sure how much I would like this bottle swap thing.....I can for certain say I have changed my mind. It is wonderful. It's wonderful to share with someone you don't know things about yourself and for them to do the same.
Julie you out did yourself. Thank you for being so very thoughtful in everything you picked...I think that is what makes the bottle swap so special. And a special thanks must go out to Yoliebean for putting it all together. Thank you for all your hard work!!

Over the next few weeks there is going to be a lot of new things going on. I have a pretty busy week planned ahead of me. Tuesday is Anna's birthday....which is an all day surprise for her (sorry can't go into detail because she reads my blog).

Then on Thursday Dean Chase and myself are off to Utah for the weekend. For Dean it's a time to visit with his old friends and have some guy time for me it's time to see store's I have never seen before like Hobby Lobby and Roberts Crafts. The best part is that they are having a scrapbooking expo in Salt Lake City on Saturday while we are there. And I get to go YAY for me.....so busy busy busy for me. But I plan on taking lots of pictures and video so that I can share it all with you....until next time have a great week!! Brandy

Ok guys I wanted to share with you my little piece of heaven.....Thanks in part to my wonderful husband Dean. Any dream I have had about this little corner he has tried his best to fulfil. Some have been easy and some have been hard but he has donethe best he could to figure out a way to make them a reality...But now I feel my room is complete and organized. Everything has a home and it is very easy to find everything. I love my little piece of heaven. I hope that you like it to....tell me what you think I would really like to know!!!

How I Plan On Spending My Saturday

I am so excited because this Saturday is going to be my first Saturday away from Dean and the kids. I have to admit that for all the excitement I feel a little nervous too. I don't want Dean to feel stress out with Chase or even Katelynn....It's funny how the oldest and the youngest can give us the most stress.

Now on to what I am doing tomorrow...they are holding a stamping convention in Carson so me and my best friend Anna and her friend Michelle and I believe another lady named Tracy are leaving bright and early so we can have breakfast and enjoy the day. Once we get there we hope to learn new technique's about stamping. I just want to soak everything up....because to be honest I don't know very much about stamping just the very basics. So the more I learn the better I will be doing.

Also just to let you know Sunday we are going to Ikea so I will be getting more storage items.....so once I can get things arranged and stored I plan on video tapping my scrapping area and that will be my second video. And before you know it I will be working on a project on video....lol Well I hope that everyone has a great weekend!!

Hey guys it took awhile but the video is finally done and has been posted to my blog. It took a little time...But I'm lucky enough have a husband who knows what he is talking about when it comes to computers......YAY DEAN!!! I love you hunny!

It was so much fun opening the box....what made it all the more fun is that my best friend Anna was here to share it with me.... It was loud and crazy with my kids running around but that is my life and I am sure the life of most of you. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

It was so cool to be able to see all the new things from Stampin' Up.....I can't wait to try everything out and then to be able to share with all of you what I can create with these new things. I will promise you this...this will not be my last video. I have so many more ideas and so many more things that I want to do....it's an exciting time....and one last promise....it won't be Anna's last video either...lol Have a great week!! And please let me know what you think!!
