Slack again!! Time for an update.

I had the awesomest day yesterday. I met Yolande and Sharon in Hamilton and we had heaps of fun shopping, eating a yummy lunch and having lots of laughs. Was Greaatt. Just what the doctor ordered.
I'm having a button thing at the mo (among other things) so bought lots of cool buttons, and we went a bit mad (yeah silly, crazy) in the material department of Spotlight. Was very funny. Cooool material.

Yolande and I talked heaps about Scrapcamp. It's going to be so cool. We have good things planned. Cool classes, delicious demos, great games and challenges; and of course scrumptious supplies for sale. Oohh yeah it's going to be good.

In other news, my boy is doing extremely well in the National Scholastics surf comp in Dunedin this week. He has made it to the semi-finals. Yeehaa. Go James.

I start my new job on Monday 1st May at Scrappin Downunder in Takanini. Working in the shop 3 days and also designing and running classes. Cool fun. Can't wait.

That's it for now.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Enjoy your new job at Scrappin Downunder how an exciting. You & Yolande sound like you were getting over-excited with the material rolls at Spotlight! Sounds like you had a great day together.

Good luck for your new job Lianne. My mother lives in Papakura and we drive past that shop on our way there in our bid to miss the town traffic. I would be interested to know what sort of classes you will do, especially ones during the day. Mum is keen to get into cardmaking in particular but not keen to go out at night.
