Good morning everyone. Hope we are all keeping well. I had a great time away with my family. My Dad took us out for dinner on Friday night and for THE first time ever it was just us as a family - sitting, talking, drinking and enjoying each others company. I missed the kids terribly though so I ended up getting home last night not today as planned - although with the way the kids have been acting I wish I had stayed at my sister's last night and come home today LOL. It is a catch 22. Hehehe.

My sisters workshops went okay - just okay. She made enough sales to get the hostess benefits but it was very disappointing for her. We had one late Friday afternoon and one person just didn't show but we were supposed to have 7 people come yesterday morning and 5 people didn't show - not even a phone call or an SMS to let my sister know that they weren't coming - so for her it was disappointing that they didn't care enough to let her know. Disappointing for me, as I drove 400kms for two workshops that wouldn't even cover my petrol. Grrrr....!!!! Nevermind - my sister was happy so that is all that matters. Anyway enough babbling from me.

As promised - a scrapbooking LO. I didn't actually end up doing this at the workshops as they were all more interested in cardmaking - good thing I can whip up a card with my eyes closed these days so wasn't too bad. I put it all together this morning as I had everything cut etc. Hope you like.

I feel soo sorry for you and your sister - some people can be sooo inconsiderate! But at least you got to spend some time with your sister!
