Bet your bottom dollar you'll lose your blues in Chicago

Sing it Frankie. Love that Sinatra song.

I am so excited, I just landed a part time position as a Cricut demonstrator. I get to fly to Chicago this weekend for training!

I am also more than a little nervous. I've never been on a plane by myself, heck, I've never been in a cab by myself.
One time when we were in Vegas I decided to take a cab to the outlet mall by myself. I went outside the hotel and stood where you wait for them to hail you a cab. As I was standing there my imagination began to run wild. I started thinking about getting in a cab with a psycho where the doors would lock and he would take me somewhere remote and keep me tied up in his basement. I knew I was being ridiculous, but I just kept thinking that if the cab started taking me somewhere else I would never even realize it until it was too late. As all these thoughts were swirling in my head I realized the cab stand guy had been asking me "Where to ma'am", for who knows how long. I panicked, said I changed my mind and went back into the hotel.

My 5 year old is a little upset and a little excited too. He doesn't like either myself or my husband to be away. But, since JT is in Vegas this week he knows he gets to sleep with Mommy, then I will be gone this weekend, so he knows daddy will let him stay up really late watching cool animal or dinosaur shows on TV.

Tessa,
I just love your layouts...they are wonderful! You should have brought some to show us.

I had so much fun in Chicago and I hope that we stay in touch. I will be uploading the pictures in a couple weeks. My site won't be done until after the 1st of May, but he (the kid I hired to do it) is still working on it.

Let me know when you get your kit!

Happy Craft'n,
Stacy
