Wow, You All Are Awesome

Can I just say, WOW You all are AWESOME!  First off, I just checked my sales report for the month of August to date, and this is my highest sales month since I came back to CTMH in April. Thanks ever so much to each of you that have made a purchased and supported my efforts.  Secondly, the fan page I set up for my customers on Face Book is growing by leaps and bounds. We've added 10 new members overnight.  Again thank you so much.

Oh, I have to tell you this has been the best day.  First off I got to sleep in until really late (11A EST) and then after getting up and doing alittle home management, I hopped back on the computer and attend Tresa Black's Creative University Online where she and several other fantastic CTMH consultant's hosted classes via Ustream live video streaming.  These classes were all awesome.  Of course there were a few minor tech difficulties for a couple of the ladies, but overall, it was a fantastic day.  I am so thankful to Tresa and the others for taking time out of their Saturday afternoon (in my time zone) to host these FAB classes.  I learned so much and I can't wait to try some of the techniques.

Speaking of, I've had a few of you ask me lately what I am up to in terms of scrappin' and stampin', well, I am feverishly working on a swap for consultants that is due to be mailed by September 6. I have probably another two full good days to work on it.  That's allowing for interruptions.  If I get lucky and not have interruptions one very long day would get it done. After that, my next project is to get the National Stamping Month Triple Play special completed so you can see.  I have some of the stamping done for it but not much.  And of course put up Stamp of the Month artwork for August and September as well as samples of the Olivia Workshop on the Go I am highlighting for September. This is a kit that you can purchase for $29.95 plus tax and shipping and comes with instructions on putting the cards and scrapbook pages together.  So much to do and so little time it seems. I am hopeful that my days will be better organized now that I switched my physical therapy (I get it at home) to first thing in the morning (can you say 8 AM) and then have the rest of my day for crafting and whatever else my life calls for on a given day.  It's my desire to schedule creating time in like any other appointment.  Yep, that is definitely what I am going to have to do especially since I am staying up to date with the "office" work of CTMH but get so little time for the creative side.

Catalogs will go out this week hopefully if not definitely by Tuesday the 6th. They are good thru the end of the year so you will not miss a thing!  I had hoped to get them out sooner, but both of my grandmothers have had health emergencies in the last two weeks within days of one another. One grandmother went to an assisted living center, the other needs to be placed there but cannot be due to financial reasons. It's been a rather stressful week or two.  Never mind the fact, with it I have lost my creative focus for a few days.  Never fear, I'm back and will have something to show soon. 

I also have setup YouTube and Ustream channels to teach my own demos.  I need to test them out before I let you all know how to go about using them.  That's also on the upcoming plans list. 

Well, it's been a very long and productive day but time to say goodnight to this Saturday night! Till tomorrow- bye ya'll.
