Home Again, Inspired and Behind...

   Home again from Chicago!  Feeling recharged and inspired..  Behind on blog posts, and feeling frazzled.  There is so much to share!  First I just want to give a shout out to Sara and Courtney for giving my mother and I a place to stay while we visited the city!!  It was wonderful meeting you both, and I wish we had more time to just get to "play" while we were there.  Thanks so much!! 

Second, I can't express how delightful it was to get a chance to meet a few of my fellow design team members and the G45 staff for the first time! Wishing I could have met everyone, but maybe a trip to California will be in my future for January.  Who knows?

Also I want to extend a HUGE apology for getting behind on the blogging.  Had every intention of blogging while in Chicago, but again ran into no Internet there either.  Once home it has been classes, spending time with Skyler and getting ready for a big Want 2 Scrap and Graphic 45 blog hop!! 
Lots to share so let's get to it!
