Did you hear my scream? Guess what I received in today's mail? Go ahead - GUESS!!!

You will just never guess...

For those you involved with SU!, you know Leadership 2011 sold out. The day that I could register also happened to be the same day that we were closing on our "old" house. So, since I couldn't be two places at once (where is Hermoine's Time Turner, when I need it?), and since selling the old house  was a little bit more important (just slightly - smile) than registering for Leadership...  well, by the time Demonstrator Support got to me while I was on hold on the telephone, they had already sold out. :(  BUT the house closing went off without a hitch, so I guess in the big scheme of things...

ANYWAY, I have been searching and listing everywhere I knew to list - that I was seeking a Leadership ticket. Mindy (sideline) and Terri (upline) were already going. We were all going to room together, my first Leadership, and I wasn't going... sniff, sniff, sniff...

Fast forward to about 2 weeks ago. This fabulous woman, Gwen, sent me an email and we spoke via telephone. She had seen one of my posts looking for a ticket. She saw that Mindy and Terri were going and she was kind enough to transfer her Leadership registration to me!!!! Talk about an answer to many prayers!

So I sent my check was sent to her, it was cashed, but it just didn't seem real, ya know?

Until today - my ticket came!!!! And, this morning, I had sent her one of those Sizzix Scallop Square tote bags that I made for my downline. She was just the nicest lady when I've spoken with her - I wanted to let her know how much I appreciated her transferring her ticket to me. Here's the one I sent to her. She should receive it Friday.
Gwen's tote - She's an Honorary Dame!

Hope she likes it!

Leadership - here I come!


  1. Love how in the background behind the ticket Charlie Brown & Snoopy are dancing for joy too!

  2. Oh, Dawn! I can't believe you put this on your blog!...but thank you! The bag is just beautiful! and I am honored. I have to tell ya that I am getting so excited for YOU and have finally stopped crying for me! You are such a sweet person! Thank you again.
