Welcome New Visitors!

New visitors and root canals and vacations, oh my!

First of all, I'd like to say "hi" to all the new people who have happened upon my blog. Welcome, pull up a chair, grab some freebies, make yourself at home. :) Ever since I started Freebie Friday and have advertised on a couple of freebie blogs, the traffic here has tripled.

I can't tell you how exciting that is for me, a work-at-home mom who designs stuff for fun. I tell you what, life is funny sometimes. I started doing this on a whim and I'm just tickled pink that anyone cares to download my stuff! :) So thanks again to anyone who's new, and don't forget to leave a comment if you'd like. Don't be shy!

On to more unfortunate news, tomorrow I'm going in to have a root canal. I have to admit, I hadn't seen the dentist in almost 6 years before a couple of weeks ago, and tomorrow I have to pay the price!! Aack! Has anyone ever had one of those before? I'm not particularly looking forward to it.

Thanks to my good friend Tracy for watching Eli while I have the procedure. I don't know what I'd do without her, since Nathan is still out of town. What a blessing good friends are!!

Okay, let's get to the happiest news of this week, shall we? On Thursday morning at 3:15am I am being picked up to go to the airport so that I can fly out to Minnesota and meet all my Scrap Girls! Yippee, the retreat is finally here, this week!

I'm way too excited, as I have been looking forward to this for
a long time. You see, I've only been fortunate enough to meet Mandy in real life, and I know that getting to meet everyone else is going to be such a treat.

Plus, I am wicked excited about getting to be on a plane with no toddler!!
It will be the first time I've flown without Eli since he was born and I'm psyched. I can read a whole magazine without being interrupted, I can sleep without worrying that a certain little boy is going to be loud, and I don't have to carry twice as much stuff with me! Oh, it's going to be heaven, I tell ya. Can't wait.

I'll definitely be bringing my camera along, so I'll have some fun shots to post I'm sure. But don't worry, Freebie Friday is coming -- I won't forget about you!

I'll end with a new layout that I did of Eli, since he likes olives and I just thought that was hilarious.

Laurel, Good luck with your root canal. I had one about 10 yrs ago the good thing is that once there isn't any root, there isn't any feeling there either. No Pain!
