< Vegas, Baby!

[Comments] (3) : Whew, I had such a long weekend I don't even know where to begin. In fact, it was so long that it's Thursday and still feels like Monday. I went with Jamie and her friend Tina (from her ward). We met Elayne there, a girl Jamie met online and always stays with. We had two adjoining rooms at Treasure Island.

Vegas was awesome (not the city itself, but the things I did). I didn't like that I had to spend so much money eating out, even considering I just had snacks for two breakfasts and two lunches. But I had a fun time with Jamie and her friends. We walked down the strip to watch the different free shows, ate crepes at The Paris hotel. FYI, the Sirens of TI show is not kid or average-person friendly. It was very trashy and I don't recommend it. Sunday afternoon we went to a class and made a cute file folder mini-book.

The CHA show was great too. The first day we gathered catalogs and then stayed up all night matching papers. On day two I got to roam around and make some of the free stuff. I made several mini-books (mini-books are the "thing" right now, but I think they are stupid. John says, "do people just have piles of mini-books on their coffee tables?" I mean one or two is ok.... anyway) some cards and other misc items. I got free adhesives and inks and some papers and a massage. I had a lot of fun wandering around and making free stuff. The cutest thing I made was a composition book covered with strips of patterned paper. I love the papers I used and it also has some cute stickers on it.

We stayed up very late finishing the kits we were planning and went back to the show on Wednesday to drop off orders. I snuck in a few more card making sessions. I didn't get home until about 6 on Wednesday because I had to do a bit more work at Jamie's house.

It feels so good to be home! Well, right now I'm at work, but you know what I mean. I missed my husband. I am very tired, from the late nights and early mornings. Happy for a two-day work week. Tonight is shopping, laundry and I promised John a real dinner and a hot tub visit.

Sherrie Lewis has discovered the mini-book idea and is obsessive-complusively going great guns with it. It looks like a VERY expensive activity to me.

I don't see the point. I'd rather have all my pictures in a real scrapbook--one central location.

I agree with the mini-books. I made a bunch in Super Saturday, and they are way cute and all, but now I don't know what to do with them. Grandma and Grandpa gifts I suppose.
I didn't appreciate Vegas last time I went too right after Lily was born. I hate that you get harassed just walking down the strip by guys pushing prostitute pamphlets.
