Yes the swarm for Jan has ended and I would like very much to say thanks to the wonderful group of ladies that was able to share it with me. They were so friendly, caring, happy, and most all so very helpful through out the weekend. What a wonderful group. We even got a name for our first swarm. This group is now called the Hot Mama's of Jax Swarm. Boy where they hot those 3 days getting all their projects finished and still having time to enter contest and doing classes. They sure were go getters.
I am sorry about the weight gain you girls all told me about. Some said they gained 2 lbs and some gained 5 lbs. One said she gained 10 lbs the dr said but no way did she do that in my three day watch. Sorry girl can't blame me on that one.
I would like to thank Jodie, Jeannie and Michelle from Scrapnstamp for giving such wonderful and interesting classes. They were a great success!
Michelle I especially want to thank you for your time as I know you were getting your husband ready for him to leave the state for a week. So tell John thanks for sharing you so the girls could learn more about the cricut.
There were many gifts given out with the sound of bells going off. I need to thank Wilma from the sign shop of Jacksonville for that. She suggested to me that I might be having to many bells and whistles but that is A.K. has to always have more than anyone could expect. I have had many friends who have tried to change me but sorry can't do it. A. K. is A. K. to old to change. But let me say this the bells were a huge hit for my swarm. Everyone had a blast.
Every time the ladies heard just a jingle of the sound of a bell going off they got so excited as they knew what was going to happen next. I would shake them quietly in the other room then you would hear the excitement and the girls screaming as they knew someone was going to receive a special gift. The bells like I said started off softly then i would shake them harder and louder and then I would start screaming we have a winner. We all laughed and had just a great time.
Our little Cricut Friend sure got a lot of attention. He was passed around and around amongst all the ladies. Sometimes Mercedes and Ching would steal it back quicker than the other ladies wanted them to but I think everyone got their share of gifts.
The information that was told to me, when my husband and buddy came in earlier to fix breakfast on Sunday for the ladies. The ladies that happen to be there, he gave them extra gifts and I think he told them not to tell me. They were all laughing. So they got a few that those other two girls didn't. They won't know that unless they read this. Ha!ha!
Then we had few contest and I want to congratulate all the winners. Your names will be posted soon.
I have lots more to say but sorry need to get back with you later. Have appt's. I will keep you posted and we are still trying to gather pictures.

I myself had a very nice one, enjoying our grandchildren opening presents and getting so excited. My grandson Hunter who is 4 was upset with his dad as he left twigs in the fireplace and Santa had to land on them and then he ripped his pants as Hunter found a piece of Santa's red pants on the metal rack the wood sits on. The rack was even knocked out of the fireplace. Hunter got excited when he saw the Cookie crumbs that were left in the fireplace. He also told his dad not to start a fire Christmas eve as he didn't want Santa to get burned. We all laughed.
On Christmas Eve Santa drop in my home for a visit while we had company. All the grandchildren were screaming and so excited to see him thru the window and then Santa knocked on the door. We let him in and he threw snow all over everyone. It was so much fun. Santa had a gift for everyone that was there even me. I got to sit on his lap too.
One of my friends we'll she was not being so good as I think she was flirting with Santa. I was watching her and she didn't take her eyes off of him. She grinned from ear to ear. Then when it was her turn to sit on his lap boy she was really smiling and Santa was blushing. Mmm! I was getting a little worried as I know Santa left poor Mrs. Clause home. Mmm! I also know it gets pretty cold outside for him and only flying with his Reindeers all night long I am sure it gets pretty lonely. But between you and me I think my friend talked Santa in going home with her. Watch out Mrs. Clause think you might have some competion. Santa was sure doing a lot of Ho Ho-ing.
Well just wanted to drop in and let everyone know the time is coming, it's right around the corner and we can leave all that hustle and bustle behind us.
We can concentrate on having a great time at the retreat. Is everyone ready? I guess I should be saying am I ready for everyone!
Well I still have lots of work to do and will be getting started on it in a couple of days once again.
So I will say so long for now and hope to see all of you soon. Don't forget to call Scrapnstamp and get signed up.
Happy Holidays Everyone!

If you don't want to stay but a few hours each day that is fine. What ever is comfortable for you. But remember to at least be back for the food, games and prizes. Thats the fun part!
This is just a getaway for those who want to be with other cricut and scrapbook sisters. This would be a great time to work on a project you have been trying to get done for awhile and haven't been able to for some reason or another. It is also a great way to relax after the holidays. So come and relax and have a great time.
