Dear Diary...April 15, 2011

Dear Diary.....

I really had a wonderful time with a girlfriend and her daughter last week in Wisconsin Dells.  It was a wonderful time and semi relaxing when we retreated to our room.  The pool and wave pool were entirely different experiences.
I would like to give a shout out to the father of four at the wave pool, I send you a big high five, your my kinda dad!  DD, you know how much I love children especially the obnoxious ones.

(First, let me state this so..... no hate mail comes my way...I was a Cub Scout Master for 6 years, and I also volunteered 3 additional years to the BSA as its District Health and Safety Advocate to its local troops  I also have a son, who is now 20 years old.) 

Back to the father of one of his son's kicked off his 3 year old sister off the raft in 5 foot waves.  I secretly appreciated the fact that I got to see you take your son by his swim trunks and drop in a current of five foot waves, lift him back on the raft and tell him..."keep it up, and there will be more of that to come!"  As the son gasps for air and spits water out of his lungs.  I literally fell off my raft from laughter cause I did not realize that kind of parenting still existed.  Hilarious?  Scary?  I immediately wondered what happens behind closed doors.

..they say one day at a time
I have had a wonderful time this week blogging and sharing my ribbon hoarding issues with my online friends!  It is embarrassing to have to admit of having such a problem.  I am confident that with their love and support I will get through Friday without buying any ribbon.  However, Saturday is totally off, Michael's has ribbon for $1.00 a spool and  it is the last day of the sale!

Fan Letter
I wrote my first Fan letter to a fellow blogger that I admire for their work and craftsmanship.  I still have not heard back from her.  Looking back maybe I made a mistake by making the subject line to my email "Your New Blog Stalker".  I am worried she never opened it up... should I send her more emails daily to let her know I am really not a stalker?  One to think about.

I had a great weeknight meeting with my business partner Christine about new Easter layouts, discussing our first video tutorial on creating paper flowers and blog ideas for  next week.

I have also started posting questions on our Facebook page for our followers to answer, yet no one has replied...weird.  Maybe asking "What is your favorite craft magazine?" was too offensive.  Maybe I will have Christine ask the questions next week, she is more p.c. than I am.

Well DD, as always, thanks for letting me write in your space.
