Happy Reunion..................Hehe......She's back........(Almost Home - Update)

Thanks everyone for their well wishes.......Just wanted to let you all know that my daughter arrived safely from Afghanistan yesterday, Tuesday.  She was home and I was pateintly awaiting her phone call......Well, she went and picked her kids up from the daycare and school first.......And then came home.....Say what????.......But I am happy that she was able to surprise them as she did........Hey, they are quiet now (hehe...)......my immediate thought was ......who's kids did you pickup....because my DGC are talkers......They are just smiling........from ear to ear........Did I mention they are quiet?????

So yes, I am now totally at peace...Well, not totally......my son will fly in tomorrow from Dallas..........Yayyyyy.......So, after we reacquaint ourselves....(hehe)...and catchup on the latest............I'll be back to my normal Scrapbooking self...........I have officially passed the paton back to mom......

Oh yes....Some great news for me......For the last month I have been waiting for an order for the Tim Holtz "Alteration" collection from an online source.  Well in waiting I was able to pick up half of them at my ACMoore at a 40% off Sizzix sale about a couple of weeks ago...So I augmented my order and patiently waited the arrival of the remaining collection........Well, I was in ACMoore yesterday.....and wouldn't you know it......The entire Tim Holtz "Alterations" collection came in.  The clerk was putting them out on the shelves.....7 of the dies that I had been waiting on.....all at ACMoore.....AND at 40% off.......So, of course I purchased them ........And ran home and cancelled my order with the online vendor...Sad to say....she is still waiting for her order to come in........So yes, "Happy", "Happy" ,"Joy" "Joy"........I was sooooo wanting "Caged Bird", "Tattered Flowers", ""The Hanging Sign" and "Baroque"............And I waited and waited....AND was sooooo dissapointed when the vendor said she had another two week backorder on the dies that I really wanted......So yay.........ACMoore to the rescue..........Also now I can complete a few projects that I was so wanting to complete with these dies........."I Love, love, love .....Tim Holtz products......(hehe...)

Okay All............Hope everyone is enjoying their day.......I am.....And can hardly wait for the weekend........Really ...I can hardly wait until the end of my workday...so I can go and see how things panned out for my daughter and the lil ones...(hehe...)
