Getting Back in the Swing of Things

As I'm sitting here updating my blog, I noticed that I haven't posted since June!  I mean, I know it was slow around here, but I didn't think it was that long!  The summer was very slow around here because everyone was off enjoying vacations.  Then, in late September, early October, I was on my vacation ... 3 days in Disney World, and my 4th Tim Holtz Cruise (to the Caribbean)!  Now that I have all my pictures back, I really should post about some of our adventures.  Well, that's for another day.  Four days after I returned home from vacation, I underwent surgery on my left rotator cuff.  Why, oh why, did I do that?  I mean, it wasn't really bothering me, but the MRI showed a complete tear, so I figured I'd better get it fixed.  Well, yesterday was the 4-week anniversary since the surgery, and it still aches!  I'm a third of the way through physical therapy, and I return to work at Michaels next week.

Speaking of returning to work, I'm going to resume my classes here in my home classroom.  I'm going to return to the same schedule:

Evening Classes:
1st Monday of the month:  Techniques Class, 7:30pm, $15  (Nov. 7th)
2nd Monday of the month:  Scrapbooking Layout, 7:30pm, $15  (Nov. 14th)
3rd Monday of the month:  Stamp-a-Stack, 7:30pm, $25  (Nov. 21st)

1st Wednesday:  Techniques Class, 10am, $15  (Nov. 9th)
2nd Wednesday:  Scrapbooking Layout, 10am, $15  (Nov. 16th)
3rd Wednesday:  Stamp-a-Stack, 10am, $25  (Nov. 23rd)

This month's crop night will be held on Friday, November 18th, 6-11pm, $15

I've finished my card making appointments, and the orders are all in.  I've already scheduled 4 dates for card-making sessions, and here are the dates for the final 6 sessions:

And, finally, Stampin' Up! is having another great promotion!  If you book a workshop, and your total party orders are over $350, you'll get an EXTRA $35 to spend on top of the great benefits you already receive!  So, it's another great time to host a workshop!  Contact me today to schedule one anytime before December 15th to take advantage of this deal.
