Close to My Heart is having a regional convention in AB in Sept, which I have registered to go to. Unbeknown to me, they go searching through all the registrants' blogs to see what kind of work they do.
I received a letter from them praising my work and asking if I'd be one of 3 presenters during the weekend. They would send me some product to create some art projects with, and pay me too! Can you believe it??? The hard part for me would have been the 15 minute presentation to the conventioneers. (Is that a word? LOL) I was really floating on cloud 9.
I had to tu them down though, because I want to be available to go to all of Melanie's doctor appointments with her and I don't know if I'll still be able to attend the convention or not. Being asked was wonderful though, and it only happened because of all the wonderful techniques and other things that you all have taught me here on Swirlydoos! Thank you so much!August 18, 2012 at 3:45 am #177220

"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."August 18, 2012 at 7:14 pm #177226
That is so cool, and deserving of more than a teeny, tiny, toot!!! It's a shame you aren't able to attend, but I can completely understand why you can't. I hope that all goes well with your daughter and continue to pray for her.August 20, 2012 at 4:50 am #177219August 20, 2012 at 7:30 am #177227
