It's 'Palooza Time
This is what I like to call "The Crazy Week". The week before Scrap-a-Palooza is one of our busiest times. There's packaging the 250 goodie bags, cutting and packaging the 250 free class kits, packing up a store, setting up the store, classes, demos...I have to stop or else I'm going to enter near panic mode. Let's just say that it's a huge event and a lot of work! I always enter the week before a 'Palooza repeating to myself, "You can sleep on Sunday. You can sleep on Sunday."
Some random things:
• To make this week even more insane, the air conditioner in our house said goodbye. Wonderful timing too. We have been in a heat advisory for the last few days so it's been borderline miserable. I don't know how in the world I survived as a kid when my dad didn't have air conditioning. I remember taking cold baths, having at least 3 fans pointed in my direction at all times, and hanging out in front of an open freezer door.
• I got to see the inside pages of our newest Sketches for Scrapbooking book, Volume 6. I think you are all going to be impressed. I didn't realize what a difference the professional printing makes. They look awesome! In the coming weeks before CHA we will be posting more sneak peeks and giving you more details and information.
• A little DVD update. We have finally seen the DVD in full after our producer brought it by earlier this week. We have always set a pretty high standard for ourselves and always strive for quality. While we loved the instructional segments and the sketches, the rest just wasn't us. We are determined to deliver a great, quality product and if that means driving our producer insane, then that is what we'll do. We aren't about to say "oh well" or "it will do" just because he's taken way too much time to put it together. It is important to us for our customers to feel that they are getting a great product and we will make that happen. We are pushing for the DVD to be done so that it can make the trip to CHA with us but I'm not going to tell you that it's a done deal yet. Thank you all so much for being understanding and supportive in this frustrating situation. Believe me, the second that I have new information or a for sure date of completion I will let you all know. :)
Have a great weekend and if you're going to 'Palooza, I'll see you there!
