I'm back!

Hey everyone!  I'm back from my trip!!! It feels so good to be back in the land of technology... I only had a couple of sporadic internet moments... just enough to turn in a paper or two for school.  I can't wait to see what everyone has been up to on their blogs and I promise to get back to all the commenters who have left me love on my posts while I was gone.  I really do appreciate you and the time you take to share a thought with me!

I received a couple of blog candy packages while I was gone so I'll be sure to post them up sometime this week.  I also hit up a couple of Hobby Lobby's and Joann craft stores... WOWIE!  I'm so envious of those of you that live near one!  The prices were about half the price of what you would see at our craft stores here in Hawaii and there is so much selection.  And on top of that there are insane sales like 50% off paper and 40% off any one item!  I died and went to craft heaven!

And of course I can't leave a post without a picture.  So here is the Kentucky family!  Even though the trip was for unfortunate and sad reasons, we took a day to go do something fun together.  White water rafting!

Yup, that's me in the front.  The only one that looks like she's being tortured...

'Till next time!

Looks like a blast!! I'm glad you got home safely, and that you had a fun trip. Can't wait to see all the prezzies you received while you were away. =D

I missed you Cely and I'm very happy you are back home safe and sound.

If you like Hobby Lobby and Jo's, you would LOVE LOVE LOVE my LSS, which I where I takes most of my classes. Kate (the owner) is now at CHA, but had 40% off sales for the last month, with a different selection of items on sale every week for the entire week. I hit the store when all the Stamps were 40% off and it was FUN! The next week it was paper, then I went again, when it was Die cuts and Adhesives!!

I know Hawaii must be such a gorgeous place to live, and having lived on the coast all my life, I'm sure I would LOVE it to be warm and swim year round. But, it sounds like I would NOT be about to buy too many craft goodies, since they sound so expensive!! I sure hope you can find good prices online like I do!!

Welcome HOME!! I missed you!

I am so freakin happy you are back! I so hope you had a wonderful time. You have been in my thought recently, as I found a plethora of "hello kitty" items, there is actually a computer mouse filled with bluish liquid with hello kitty in a raft. Coincidence that you were also in a raft, Ha! Hello Kitty did look a little happier!
