Today is the day!

Registration for the 2008 session of Library of Memories begins at 1:00 pm PST. Yay!!

I just peaked at the pre-class page and it’s all there and ready to go (survey and first assignment) I can’t wait to meet you all and do this crazy thing again.

Just so you know, I’ll be cleaning my house, finishing up my project for ScrapBowl ’08 and shopping at Walmart for  MORE "open and not visable" containers (for Wendy’s class) to use in refreshing the backroom of my studio. I’ve determined that these are my favorite kind of container for most of what I’m storing back there. I actually have a friend coming to stay with me next weekend to help me purge, sort and get set for LOM. In fact, we should have a little guessing contest — wouldn’t that be fun. If you can be the first to guess who is coming to stay with me, then you’ll get a serious big box of scrapbooking SCHTUFF to use and share with your friends. Wanna do it?

Here are some hints:

I first became acquainted with her (and her work) when I lived in Salt Lake City and had the opportunity to look through winning Hall of Fame layouts with Deanna Lambson, in preparation for a PBS segment.

She has worked for three very successful manufacturers over the last 10 years.

The weather in Spokane will be quite a shock to her system.

Have fun.
