v. pro·cras·ti·nat·ed, pro·cras·ti·nat·ing, pro·cras·ti·nates
To put off doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness or laziness.
To postpone or delay needlessly.

Why do I procrastinate?

I am sitting here with a huge list of things I need to do before I leave on Wednesday morning.

And what am I doing with this "huge list?"

Just looking at it. And looking. Not doing. Just Looking.

I will tell you that I work better under pressure. I do.

That is why I love tight deadlines. I can get it together!!

But with things like getting ready for a trip or doing things around the house, I am the Queen of Procrastination!!

Running around like a crazy woman. Thinking I forgot something. Knowing I forgot something. It can get quite ugly. LOL

And I have always been a procrastinator.

I did when I was in school. So, I had a few weeks to do a project or essay. No problem! Plenty of time! Then why did it always seem like I was scrambling the night before to get it all done?

I was 45 minutes late for my wedding. Ok, the photographer was in a car accident and the bridesmaids dresses were coming apart at the seams, but 45 minutes???? Ugggh!

And I am leaving for Talladega in two days! Two days! My girlfriends and I have been planning this for almost a year. I thought we had all our ducks in a row, but once again we are scrambling with the last minute details.

Have I packed?


Do I know what I am packing?


Am I getting ready to pack?


It is par for the course. LOL

It is definitely something I need to work on.

So, there it is. I am a procrastinator.

I am pretty sure I will not be posting anything else until I get back next week.

But I know I will have stories to tell. LOL

It is going to be a blast. Once I get there.

It is getting ready to get there that will be a process. LOL

So, wish me luck.

Procrastinator. Out.

(have a great week)

Crazy Weekend! But so much fun!

Well, as some of you may know, I joined the Creative Memories Design Team in January. This is truly an amazing opportunity. Not only are the women I work with amazing and talented, but they are also super nice too!!

CM has been keeping me busy for the past 8 months! :)

To say that the stuff Creative Memories has come out with lately and will be coming out with soon will BLOW YOUR MIND is an understatement!! I have been "oooohing" and "aaaahhhing" for months.

So, keep your eyes peeled! It is all very exciting!

I am so honored to be a part of this.

And now I have been invited by local Creative Memories Consultants to teach at their crops!

I taught at a crop this weekend. It was so much fun! There were over 100 ladies there and their enthusiasm for the classes were off the charts!!!!!

I want to thank the Consultants for having me! It was a phenomenal experience!

The crop was 11 hours long and I taught the entire time I was there! It was crazy, but invigorating at the same time. I taught four classes. They filled up so fast!

Wanna see them?

"A Bountiful Life" Class

"Eeek" Class

"Fabulous Fall" Class

And a Shape Maker class. Sorry, I do not have pictures of this.

The class showed innovative ways to use the Shape Makers. We played around with the punches and created a few things.

I was running around all day teaching classes. I barely had time to eat, but it was all worth it!! I had a great time.

So, that is my weekend in a nutshell! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I know I did! :)
