Wouldn't you know it, my TIVO recorded something else and not American Idol last night! My fault, obviously, so I had to go through the season pass manager and give Idol a higher priority than Designed to Sell or was it House Hunter. At any rate it will record Idol tonight! I am "trying" really hard to get things all done by Friday, but it is an uphill battle which should be a snap for me given that I spent 11 years of my life living on a pretty steep hill! Here is a picture of the street I lived on.
Le Vendome that you see here, is the restaurant that my parents started in the 50s in Quebec City. We lived on the top two floors of this historical house built in the 1700s! The main and 2nd floor were/are taken up by the restaurant which actually had two full kitchens. Actually I found some beautiful pictures of the city of my birth taken by a tourist last year or was it the year before. I thought I'd share so here is the link.
I am still working on the cruise and I'm no longer sure about doing a class at CKC. They told me today that of the $25 I wanted to charge for the class, they would take $22!!! I guess I'm not charging enough, but that seemed reasonable to me. The album and the techniques I'd be teaching do require 2 hours. I hate the classes that you go to at conventions that are so fast paced that everyone walks out with most of their kit untouched and nothing quite completed. I guess I might offer the class somewhere more reasonable. Maybe on the cruise, LOL! Just kidding!
Finally, as requested, here is a picture of the mini book that goes with the little mailbox. Now off to bed I go!

My poor friend Janie saw me have an artistic frustration fit this afternoon. It doesn't happen often, but with the deadline looming the book just wasn't where I wanted it to be. Thankfully my funk disappeared, I thought of a way to get the balance that was missing on the pages and I'm happy with the final product. Hopefully it will be approved and people will sign up for it. That part is always scary!
Other than that I had a nice chat with my RCS friends. I watched the Biggest Loser and talked briefly to my hubby who was really tired. I'm so proud of him! He has been taking yoga classes twice a week before work, which means that he has to leave here at 6:15. He demonstrated some of his moves the other day. Now, now people, I am speaking of yoga positions here! I was amazed at how flexible he has become! I have another busy weekend ahead of me, I have a 6-12 crop on Friday and I have to then pack my TLC items and some other stuff as I am vendoring at a crop in Sarasota on Saturday. For those who do not know, Sarasota is 45 minutes from here and I have to be there at 8:30 am to set up. Well that's it for another day in the life of "moi"! Now off to see what happened on American Idol. Thank goodness for TIVO!

So... I thought I'd share something else, a layout from the wedding album I made for Amy and Eli.
