Hello There!

Here are some pictures from our First Crop. Thanks again to everyone who came and we are excited for next months crop! We have two of our four projects already completed and will be posting them on September 8th, here on my blog. We are hoping our website will be completed by then and we will have links to our company and personal blogs. So much to think about!!
Of course we have a theme again this month...and we hope to not see another cupcake for a looonngggg time!!! Our second crop has been named its "oh la la" and it needs to be said with a sultry accent and lots of umph!! (let me know if you need a personal demonstration!!)
A couple of the pictures are very funny....at one point late in the evening Beth had an incident with the stickles and practically the entire bottle landed on her face!!! Oh it was so funny and was the "look of the day" You can see how fresh we looked in the morning and how wilted we looked in the night...but we wouldn't have changed it for the world. Madonna Botswana showed us all how to eat a cupcake properly, and after almost a year...I was able to get Lisa in a picture!!!
Thanks again and sign up today for the next crop to ensure your spot!!

hugs, kathie

I love this smile!!!

Good Morning to all my KOOKYDELUCY friends!
Today is so beautiful outside and I had such an amazing weekend. I really feel refreshed, light, and happy as I begin this very busy week. That is a good thing!!
My weekend ended with a note from my friend Jeanne with pictures of my adorable little friend Caitlyn and her sister Carissa.
I have probably been better friends with Caitlyn than with her mom from day one. I met her last November while I was at work one day and I instantly had a bond with her. Odd I know seeing she was only 4 at the time! Goes to show you my mental age...lol :o) Her curiosity and maturity reminded me alot of my daughter Olivia when she was that age. Its like talking to an old lady! Anyhow, I (think) she had the same instant bond with me. Again odd.
Well a while back she came into work to visit me to share some unfortunate news with me. She had been diagnosed with cancer. It broke my heart and as she sat there telling me the details I held back my tears and my heart was crumbling inside. By the time she left I felt better because of her bravery and her outlook on the situation. Her mom is like a rock...strong...amazingly strong. I've often thought about if Caitlyn was my daughter how I can only imagine that I would crawl into a ball in a corner and become immobilized. Amazingly enough the Lord has given this whole family the grace to carry on and take this battle one day at a time. Truly amazing to watch.
So I ask you to keep Caitlyn and her family in your thoughts and prayers as they continue this battle with cancer. Caitlyn recently had surgery and is in a back brace that is very uncomfortable, especially in the weather as you can imagine. Shes a strong little girl that has made an impact on my life. Thank you for your prayers.

Hello Everyone!

I've just returned from a nice long vacation from Pennsylvania. I will post some updated summer pics this week. It's mid week but I am back into the swing of things. Beth and I have been working on some things for all of our upcoming projects, classes, and crops. We both found out this week that we will be in the Autumn 2009 issue of Take Ten Magazine. This was Big Girl Beth's 6th time to be published and my 1st!! I think it is still as exciting no matter how many times you get published. We have lots of other things out there for consideration so hopefully you will be seeing us around a lot more. Oh...did I mention I got published for the FIRST time ever!! Very exciting!

Sadly, we found out this week that Beth or I will NOT be teaching at Bella ART anymore as we had hoped for. I know we had told you that we would be and thank you all for your interest in our classes. All of my classes will be listed here on my blog.

I have many different classes I will be teaching at RIGHT AT HOME SCRAPBOOKING in Attleboro, MA. It is right over the RI line and is really worth the trip especially if you love to scrapbook and love embellishments & an amazing assortment ribbon. They also have an extensive selection of COPIC Sketch markers. It makes me happy just to look at all the pretty colors line up! (I know its a sickness!)

Our official Scrap-en-dip-ity company website and company blogs should be up and running (fingers crossed) within the next two weeks. So all of Beth's classes will be listed there when that all happens. In the mean time if you want to know about a specific class just shoot us an email at scrapendipityinfo@gmail.com.

Our crop is filling up nicely as we had hoped for. We have LOTS of surprises ready for that day! Some great door prizes....raffles, yummy food! and lots of fun and laughs. You may even find a sweet treat or two waiting for you!!

Add yourself as a follower of this blog so you know when we update. Hope you have a great day the SCRAP-EN-DIP-ITY way!
