Well stay tuned. 4 shots of espresso in hand - 90 minutes until seating begins at Main Stage, and I'm ready for some pictures, some observations, your questions and a prize. :)
First of all, I know every time I tell you I have a pet peeve I tell you it's my #1 pet peeve, but seriously - HOTEL TV'S WHERE SOME CONDESCENDING WOMAN COMES ON EVERY TIME YOU HIT THE POWER TO TELL YOU HOW TO USE YOUR REMOTE??
Geez - if someone in America is so impaired as to need a TV tutorial, they should not be traveling alone. I'm thinking straps, gurneys, padded rooms, feeding tubes.
Can we get those things killed? Someone please get on it. I just want to wake up and turn the news on.
Last night, Jane and I had the following adventures:
I drove to downtown Orlando trying to find Amura restaurant with my lights off (YES 1985 WANTS ITS CAR WITHOUT AUTOMATIC LIGHTS BACK)
But then, total geeks that we are, we had to bring our catalogs in with us for a little sushi and stamping. My beloved Jane was having sushi for the first time, as I like to force people to do.
Speaking of Jane - look what she made me!! And it was full of my BELOVED Dove Chocolate!!! Love Jane, I do!
Neelam, Jenn - Takashi in Salt Lake is still officially the best sushi restaurant in North America. *sigh*.
But ours was good - especially the spider roll. Mmm.We wrecked house on some edamame.They had these beautiful little dishes. I thought the eggplant would make a great stamp. And blue bamboo? Really? No veggie stamps in the new catalog.
Then on the way back, we needed drinks at Walgreens (no mini bar in the hotel and I'm not drinking tap water people - do you know what hotel pipes look like???) and it was totally in the hood. But we lived and here are some answers for you.
1) Circle cutter. We saw the box yesterday and it's by CutterBee made for us I guess. You need a glass mat. The base part looks more stable than the retail Cutterbees. The glass mat is $19.95, the cutter is $29.95 and the extra blades are $3.95. It cuts ciircles from 1" to ... pretty big - I can't remember and it doesn't say in the catalog. I'm going to see if I can try it today.
2) New punches - the Heart to Heart I've been using - with the three little hearts. The Large Heart punch which is perfection - heart is same size as the large star, and the Eyelet Border punch. That's it! You can save your money for stamps & Paper & owls & decor elements & corduroy.... well, not "save" so much :)
Okay - ready for a giveaway? Want to win something from Memento Mall? I'm not sure what yet because I need to try to get some things that were limited yesterday for my downline & friends, but it will be something great!
