After we got home from dance last night, my daughter Madeline turned on Season 1 of Glee!  I was giggling so HARD:-P .  The characters are just priceless! Needless to say – Madeline and I stayed up until 5:00AM finishing the entire series!!!!!!!!! I went to bed smiling cause I just love how it ended!!!!!! Totally looking forward to Season 2 to come out on DVD. That being said – not sure why I have to be such a compulsive maniac and watch it right to the end. Today has been filled with lots of coffee and me trying not to be grouchy! Wish me luck!

Running a magazine means CRAZY mail days!  About once a week my mail looks something like this!   This shipment arrived on Wednesday and was mainly full of GORGEOUS layouts that will be featured in the Summer 2010 issue of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine. This is the best part of my job – opening up these boxes and seeing the amazing work all you guys do! I wish you all could come over for coffee and see these layouts in real life – although our photographer Brian Harder does an awesome job – nothing beats seeing the hard copies! I thought I would open one up for you to see! This layout was designed by Jessyka Poulin from Sherbrooke, Quebec – look for it in our Turquoise feature in the summer issue. (Just gorgeous :-)) This weekend I will be opening all the boxed treasures and preparing them for the photo…
