Stampin Up!

I'm slow...yes..very very slow.  Not mentally slow....just physically slow.
I've been decluttering....
lots of things been put on ebay = lots of packing and trips to the post office.
Also decluttering my scrap space...it's finally done....and there was a huge big box of stuff to be rakked away.
Only about a quarter of raks have been sent out.
It's not easy.....
to pack 40 raks......
So I have to do it slowly.....
but now that it's school holidays......I should have more time at home and less time to run around dashing here and there....
technically I should have more time.  LOL
So look out for yumminess in your mailboxes soon!!!
Ok.....what else have I been up to?
Um......no scrapping.  Haven't had the time or the space to scrap with ebay, rak and post office piles all over the house.
I've also been shopping at Peters of kensington.  Got myself some serving platters and some new cooking pots.  Couple of weeks ago...I was very very tempted to buy ebay tickets to the Michael Buble concert...but in the end.....I couldn't afford decent tickets.....decent tickets = floor tickets close the stage so Michael Buble wouldn't be the size of an ant.  So instead....I got myself one of these.....it's a consolation purchase.....with DH's blessing....this has been aptly named.....the Michael Buble pot.  
hehehe...sorry Michael....I chose a pot over you.

I've also caught up with Vita & Jane when they came over to visit last week....Jane brought those TDF donuts.  TDF???  To die for.....yes....there are donuts that can be called TDF donuts.  Soooo yummy!!  Bless Jane for bringing two bags....one for our morning tea...and one bag just for the family.  The family loves love loves them too!!  Yes...TDF!!!  And no...not telling you where from ...and Jane....don't tell anyone either.  

Yesterday I went to the KitiQ scrap n chat.  I love how they call it a scrap n chat instead of a crop.  It takes the pressure off creating layouts...it takes the pressure off scrapping.  You have an option...scrap or chat.  I did the latter....very very well yesterday.  Mich came to pick me up and we grabbed an early lunch at Maccas (my first burger since Feb/March) then headed to Belgrave.  

oh oh oh.....for those who don't know....I've also joined up with Stampin Up.  Tooo many of their products that I just absolutely love.  So if you want some Stampin Up......let me know!!!  Get a special deal for your first order with me!

and ok...this is the biggest news of the week...of the month.....of the year.....

I GOT A SPOT ON THE SCRAPTACULAR RETREAT!!!!!

Yes!!!  I'm sooo excited.  Tina couldn't go on the retreat because her DH has to go away for work...and none of the 16 people on the wait list could go...so I got the spot.  I'm very very happy.  It was an awful 2 day wait before I knew if I had the spot or not and DH said I could buy another pot if I didn't get the spot.  heheheh  So I'll be away at a retreat on the 18th - 20th July!!!  Can't wait!!!
