Thanks to....

Chuck, for allowing me the trip of a lifetime.

Karen, for going on this adventure with me.

Stephanie, for stalking me through email and blogland to sign up for this trip. I cannot wait to spend some time with you after 18 years.

Will, for coming into my craft room now and then the last few months while I worked away on all my swaps. And for eating whatever was in the pantry for dinner...'cause I wasn't stopping the progress to cook. I love you Baby Will.

Jordan and Cameron, for listening to me and talking to me. I LOVE MY GIRLS. I love that they TALK.

The Kindergarten Team, for being the best team ever...I will miss you guys....enjoy your break from me (Carol and Gale won't notice I'm gone..I'll make it up to you, I swear!). I love all of you.

To my dogs, who have laid under my legs while I craft away.

To my dearest, sweetest sister, Catha......for being my biggest fan and the wind beneath my wings. She and I used to shop on our lunch hour for Mary Engelbreit stuff...and she has given me many ME gifts over the years.

Okay........if this is sounding's because Chuck told me last night that my plane is a propeller plane. And although I don't know what that doesn't sound so good. So in case my number's up.......I wanted you all to know how much you mean to me and how happy I am to be going on this trip. No regrets!

Now on a lighter.......much lighter note......

After much planning and a whole lot of trips to Hobby Lobby and's finally here! SiLvEr BeLlA!!!! If the propellers don't fall off and I return safely...I'll update this on Monday with lots of pictures. MmmmWwwwahhhhhh.


  1. I made your blog! Hope you are having the time of your life ... if you were here I would be wanting to go to the Nutcracker Market ... Looking forward to the update next week. Tell Mary hello!

  2. Wow, now that I've been to Silver Bella I look back one post on your blog where you said you were in EIGHT swaps!!!!!!! Was that a crazy night or what???? I LOVE my swaps and I loved meeting you and all the others! And it was a trip of lifetime for me, I think!!!! I'm still sweeping up glitter from all the stuff I just unpacked....

    SO MUCH FUN!!!!!
