2010 Highlights and It's all about the New Year!

My Upline (and treasured friend): Michelle Deslandes
2010 has certainly been a year full of moments to embrace and moments that left one full of unsettled emotions.  I have learned much about myself - what drives me ... what my capabilities are ... what my dreams are ... and where I want to go in the new Year.  I have been been very blessed to have had many opportunities come my way this past year.  I was able to remain active as a Stampin' Up Demonstrator.  Though it was challenging, my first full year as a Demo was a learning experience.  Many individuals inspired my life and gave me support and inspiration to not give up.  My Stamping "mom", Michelle Deslandes is one of the most special individuals to enter my life.  She has become one of my very best friends. 
     In May, my daughter Sayde and I were part of the American Idol Grand Finale. What an experience for two small town girls from 'Redneck' Vermont!  Our 'true colors' were evident from the moment we landed in L.A.  We had never heard of these shuttle buses that bring you to your hotel so we spent two hours trying to figure out what our transportation was that was waiting for us.  We arrived at the Beverly Hilton exhausted and a bit chilly (yes, it was colder in L.A. than it was in VT and this Northern VT girl didn't bring a jacket!)  Nothing stopped us as we skipped down street and stopped within the first five minutes ... who knew L.A. could be dirty?  It was not at all what we had envisioned from late night television shows!
Never dreamed we get this close.  
The Vermont Girls in Salt Lake City, UT
  It wasn't long after a return from L.A. that I was on a plane heading to my very first Stampin' Up Convention in Salt Lake City, UT.  I fell in love immediately with the West.  A group of VT girls traveled and stayed together.  I can't remember having that much fun since I was in High School!  I also met a cyber friend, Robbie Rubella by a chance bump in! 

Meeting cyber friend:  Robbie

One of the highlights of the trip was meeting Dawn Griffith http://www.dawnsstampingthoughts.net/   -

Another of the year's highlights ... I finished my Bachelor of Psychology with Honors in December!  I never thought at 42 years old I would experience the joy of being a college graduate!

The most important of my year ... to have a loving, healthy family to share my life with!
