Spring is in the air...

Spring is definitely here... we are insanely busy, which is always how it is in April for us!  Jacob had his 10th birthday party, went to his first NHL hockey game, and got a puck at the game.. a real one.. what a thrill.
The Easter Bunny came, we went to Kitchener to visit with family, 
cooked an Easter Turkey with all the trimmings, and I started Spring cleaning.  My clothes closet is almost done and the kids are next on the list.  I also started to clean up my scrap space.... AGAIN, to try and somehow get it organized... I'll keep you posted on how that goes.  I think a Garage Sale is in the line up for May and there will definitely be some scrappy stuff in there.  I even have some older Creative Memories things to sell off.

Scrapfest is almost here.. and my instructions are done and the prep work sent out to all the students.  I'm pretty pleased.  The kits are all started, and boxes of sponsor product is arriving daily!

If you're taking the class, be excited to know that we have sponsorship from: myStampBox, The Robins' Nest, & Big Dawg Promotions for the Pieces of Me workshop.   There will also be a prize pack, from the best Scrapbooking Magazine ever.. Canadian Scrapbooker... of course! 

Speaking of the best Magazine ever, you need to hop on over to the website and check out some of the new and cool things that we have going on!   Webisode #2 is up and running.. great fun projects for you to try.
Then there is the contest... where you can win some really cool Spellbinders Products and don't forget to check out Sue Sykes - Hands on Photography online course... Sue will also be teaching at Scrapfest and she has just a few spots left if you are interested in learning how to take your photography skills up a notch!

If you're interested in what goes into the making of the magazine, or just curious about what Jackie (our fantabulous editor) does in a day.. check out the new blog....  Canadian Scrapbooker Backstage Pass.

Phew, that was a lot to catch up on.. and now I am off to Scrapbook.  I can actually see the surface of my desk, and I found some really cute paper in my stash that I want to play with tonight...  I'll show you the results tomorrow!

Happy Easter everyone.
