A Superfanteriferic Day!!!


I had such an awesome day today! ...Today was my first Official Fiskars Demo at The Scrapbook Facotory here in O'Fallon, IL....it was a huge success...I was there from about 1130-4...I got there a little early thinking I'd have time to set up before people started coming...I was wrong...people were lining up while I was trying to set up...it was crazy...it was awesome...it was a blast...I met so many cool people today and had so much fun teaching people how to use their tools....I loved hearing people say "oh my gosh I never knew that" and "thanks I really learned something new!" Anne (the manager) did such a great job of advertising...plus she put the Fiskars items on sale and made Paper Packs..WorldWin Cardstock in Fiskars orange and Beige to give away also...Did I already mention it was fun? I made about 50 RAK's to give away to everyone who participated in the make and take (it was a cute little Thank you Card) and I actually ran out!! and then if you can even believe this...They happen to have just gotten a part time opening and they offered me a JOB!!! It's like my dream job...!!! Which is why I am happy dancing all over the place like Tigger!!
So now...I am exhausted...my throat hurts and I think I might be losing my voice...but it's all good...I've got to go pick one of Britain's friends to spend the night and then at midnight...(because I'm the coolest mom ever...:-) ) I will be taking all of them to Gamestop to get SuperSmash Brothers Brawl....if you have a boy into video games then you're probably familiar with this phenomenon...
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Gratitude:
1. Fiskars Demo
2. getting offered a job at my LSS
3. Meeting so many cool fun people today
4. midnight game releases...(ok not...)
5. Orange

Sounds like an absolutely great day! Congrats on your new job and a great class!

Kylie in Warsaw said...

I'm so glad the class went well for you and that you got a job offer? You didn't tell us, are you going to accept it? (I only ask because when I was offered my dream job, life circumstances required me to turn it down).

Kylie in Warsaw said...

Yeah, that first sentence wasn't supposed to be a question. Note to self: ALWAYS PROOFREAD! LOL!

What a wonderful day for you!!! Congrats!

I love tigger too!!!!

Kelly said...

Wow, congrats on the job offer....did you accept?? Will you have to cut back on your other job?? I'm glad your day was such a huge success--that's awesome!

Now call me crazy, isn't there an O'Fallon MO too?? I had thought there was. I used to be in Belleville all the time up until about 8 years ago. My mom is from there and my grandma lived there until about 9 years ago. She then moved up here and passed away from cancer.

I've heard of that game but don't know much about it. Right now my boys want Super Mario/Sonic Olympic games and Carnival Games. We have rented both and they love them.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Congrats on a great day. I am very happy for you. But not surprised. I knew it would turn out great for you. I am enjoying your ricettas. One day I will actually post a layout or 2made based on one or two.
Double congrats on being offered a job in "HEAVEN".

Yay!! Congratulations, Amy...that's awesome!!! smiles...

Maria said...

I was just about to say you should think about getting a job doing that, until you said you DID get a job! I think this is your calling! Congratulations. And BTW, you are the coolest mom. My son would just have a heart attack if I did that for him. His birthday is in acouple of weeks. Is the game everything they thought it would be? Did they love it?

Congratulation Amy!! You had a fabulous day, and if you accept the j*o*b make sure you check out the discount, that's the best part of working for a lss.
The fiskar demo sounds like you were a big success, but that something I knew you would be fabulous at, you have a great personality.
