is coming home!
Thanks to all in Calgary. Leslie and Megan and their whole team. I enjoyed a visit to one of the best scrapbook stores I’ve ever seen, appropriately called Scrappers’ Paradise (This weekend, they opened a digital lab inside the store with 10 or so computers and demos and classes — way cool!) I managed to spend some money and I really enjoyed meeting everyone (especially a handful of LOM friends!)
I had to get up at 3:45 this morning to make my 6:30 flight and get home for church — but I’m so glad I did. I actually got to read Life Artist a bit over the weekend and in the airport. I lent it to a friend right after I got it and just got it back. I slept on the flight from Calgary to Seattle, read more and on the flight to Spokane had a major brainstorm, unearthing a whole bunch of great ideas (wrote as fast as I could) — love it when that happens — thanks Ali for the inspiration!!
It is absolutely gorgeous in Spokane. Geof was a little late picking me up so I walked around outside, soaking up the warmth and taking pictures of signs (weird I know, but fun)
can you decipher it?
Before I left I read Taft a children’s book about Thomas Edison — it was pretty long and was about him as a child growing up — so basically, Taft was inspired to invent me a bag made from a diaper. He explained that if I spilled something inside, it would just soak it right up. Inside my new stylin purse were several other small inventions — my favorite was a small peppermint candy, wrapped in a Starburst wrapper and all taped up (little boys love Scotch tape) which we decided we might start making and selling as "surprise candy" — kids would buy it thinking it is one thing and then be surprised to find something else inside.
Clark is taller than me. When Clark made this claim this morning, I didn’t believe him, but it has now been settled. I explained that we absolutely had to take a photo, because the day your firstborn exceeds you in size is a milestone moment — one of those "I gave birth to you and now look what’s happened?"
it’s really good to be home.
