The weekend is finally here. I'm very excited for this particular weekend to come. This is because my husband and I are FINALLY getting to go out on a date. We moved to Tucson about 3 months ago and didn't know anyone who we were comfortable leaving our daughter with. Recently, some friends of ours from Texas moved here as well. They offered to take our angel for a night so we could go out. Yay! We're going to see Eat, Pray, Love (despite ho-hum reviews, I think I'll enjoy it) and then we're going to go eat some sushi at a place we've heard a lot about. We really need this and I'm so excited, I even have butterflies!
Another exciting thing about this weekend actually happens tonight. Studio Calico reveal night. Now, I'm not a subscriber to Studio Calico, but I want to purchase the September kit. For those of you not familiar, Studio Calico puts together monthly kits of scrapbooking products (some from their line and some from other lines, such as Jenni Bowlin and Tim Holtz, just to name a few). It's all coordinating so very little to think about as far as putting products together on a page. Every month subscribers receive the main kit and can purchase add-on kits if they wish. I've been on Studio Calico as part of my Sketchbook class but didn't plan on subscribing at all. Well, I'm starting to change my mind. I haven't taken the plunge yet, but I am going to order the September kit to test it out and see if it's worth it (there is a SC ruler stamp that I'm practically drooling over). Here's the thing...this site is competitive! They only have a certain number of kits and add-on kits, so you have to be quick to get what you want. Oh my gosh, it's cut-throat! I feel like we're at a sample sale at Barney's or something! I gotta get my inner Carrie Bradshaw ready. I feel confident that I'll get the kit and I'm going to skip the add-ons right now (that's what usually goes quickly) since I'm just testing it out. The kits go on sale at midnight (EST), so 9:00pm my time and I'll be on the site and ready to go. I'm getting excited and all the lades at SC are so inspiring and friendly. How often do you get to have a real conversation with the head of a scrapbooking company? I've talked to April Foster a few times and she's amazing.
Here are my weekend goals:
1. Do my final page for my Sketchbook class.
2. After that...clean up and organize my scrap desk.
3. Get ready for the mini book class starting Monday (more on that tomorrow).
4. Clean out my car - needs it desperately!
5. Tonight is pedicure night for me and my daughter. Matching polish and all!
6. Finish my book, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Can't put it down right now! So good!
7. Watch my next West Wing DVD. I'm halfway through the last season.
I'll be back tomorrow with an update on how SC Reveal Night goes and details on the mini book class I'm taking. Have a great Friday night everyone!
