:LIFE: Feeling behind...

Do you ever feel like your a few steps behind where you should be and you just can't quite catch up? I'm there. As you can probably tell from my lack of posting recently.

Work is really picking up. It's the height of campus visit season and with the other counselors on the road most of the time, that leaves me to cover the prospective students visiting campus. Plus, I have my own students to help get registered for spring, so it's just an all around busy time.

This week I had a challenge due in the WeScrap forums (you can check it out here) and an article due for the WeScrap December newsletter and I was late on both. Good thing my fellow team members are willing to work with me...such great ladies at WeScrap.

I also had a MemoryWorks party this week. My sister was the hostess and it was the best party I've had so far in overall sales. It's ironic because initially she wasn't even sure she should have it because she didn't think anyone would buy anything...boy was she wrong! She sure was tickled about all the great free products she'll be receiving.

MemoryWorks has been on my brain a lot lately. I've been an independent consultant for MW for about a year now and basically broke even. I'd like to do just a little better than just break even, so have been brainstorming lately and have come up with several marketing and customer appreciation programs that I hope will help to boost sales in 2009. I've been spending a lot of evenings fleshing out these ideas so that I can announce them in December and officially launch on the first, so if you are one of my MW customers, stayed tuned...there are some exciting things to come.

I also had to go through my bookshelf...only so much space for my scrapbooking books, so it was time to thin them out again. I got a lot of the photos and information prepped today and hope to list them on Ebay sometime this week. If you're looking for some great gift items for the scrappers in your life (or yourself) for Christmas, you'll want to check out my Ebay store in a few days.

Anyway, I have to say that I'm really looking forward to the holiday breaks I have coming up. We have 2 1/2 days in the office this week and their going to be busy ones, but then I have a four day weekend to look forward to. Although it been crazy lately, I know I have a lot to be thankful for. Thanksgiving weekend is always extra special because that's when I usually put up the Christmas tree and a few other decorations to get in the holiday spirit.

Then we have three weeks in the office before 2 FULL WEEKS off for Christmas. I can't wait! You can bet there will be some serious scrappin' goin' on!
