Is is really the end of March?

The 1st of March was just yesterday and now it's the end of the month! Granted it has been busy and I was out of town last weekend . . . but, at this pace, I will be 75 years old before I know it. Well, maybe not that bad, but time sure spins around a lot faster today than it did twenty years ago. And somehow, we seem to fit in three times as much stuff as we did then. I can't imagine what it will be like over the next tweny years!

It's late, but I wanted to check in and let everyone know I was still kicking and going strong! Something like the energizer bunny . . . I just keep going and going and going . . . . .

Trying to keep up . . .

Either the days are getting shorter or I have way too much to do! We are busy getting ready for the Mesa CK Convention which will be held April 20 and 21 at the Mesa Convention Center. Michelle, Kim, and I are all teaching classes again . . . and they are dang cute! We are also sponsoring a retail booth in the vendor faire. We have been planning the booth layout as well as getting the product ordered and priced.

We are excited to be debuting a new paper line called "The Paper Element". We will also have "Cosmo Cricket" and "Dreamstreet Papers" . . . two of our very favorite lines. You will want to check out the fabulous page kits we have put together, the fun and funky finds, as well as other can't live without scrapbook supplies! We would love to see you in our classes or come by the booth and say "Hi".

Lots of things going on at the store over the next few weeks. Our AUTISM premier event will be held Saturday, April 7th. A great mini album class will be offered at 10:00 a.m. and again at 1:30 p.m. that day. A gala raffle event is being held that evening. Check out the Devine Memories website for more information.

Teresa Collins, Junkitz designer, will be teaching a class on Friday, April 6th. This is one class you won't want to miss!

The weather in Mesa has been beautiful . . . some would say too hot already . . . but it is supposed to cool down some over the next few days. The orange trees are in blossom and smell so GOOD! The grass is starting to turn green again and the sunsets are out of this world. So, if you are looking for something fun to do, or a place to get a head start on your tan . . . come visit us. Life is certainly GREAT in Mesa, Arizona!

Lost is Found!

I thought I lost one of my camera SD cards with pictures from the first two days in Hawaii. Last night when I was putting the rest of my clothes away, I found the SD card and $12.00 in the pocket of a pair of jeans . . . what a relief and nice surprise. I was able to download the pictures and treat myself to Panda's for lunch today.
We are busy getting things ready for the Mesa CK Convention. Michelle, Kim, and I are teaching some great classes and there is still time for you to sign up and spend some time with us. We are also hosting a retail sales booth this year and working diligently to get supplies stocked up for that. We will post samples of the classes on the Devine Memories website this week. I hope you can join us!
The weather has been perfect. I sat out on the back porch today to eat lunch. It was nice and very relaxing. The front door is open and I can hear and smell the water from the sprinklers. The lime and orange trees are beginning to blossom and the fragrance is wonderful!
Hope all is well in your world . . . as for me, Life is Great in Mesa, Arizona!

Flora and Fauna . . .

Sharing a few more pictures from my trip . . . isn't it interesting to see all of the different flowers and plant life? Each island was a little unique in the geography and foilage . . . but it was all very green and beautiful! Thought I would throw in a couple pictures of the wildlife also. What a wonderful sense of God's creations and nature. Life is good in the islands of Hawaii!

Back from Hawaii . . .

I'm back from the cruise . . . and can't believe that I have been home for over a week already. Here are a few pictures to whet your appetite. I will post more later with comments and commentary about the trip. It was great!
