Places to go…people to see..things to do…

Wow, where did January GO?!  The last two weeks of it flew by.  I went to CHA and words can’t describe how much fun it was!  Not many pics though…I was having such a grand time I forgot to take them!  One of the highlights was the Fiskateers Garden Party, we got to make all kinds of fun garden-themed crafts designed by the most adorable group of gals in ORANGE!  By the end of the party I was SURE I wanted to be a Fiskateer too, and am proud to say I am Fiskateer #6905!

The girls worked hard to make us each a 'seed packet’ with a craft in it (check out those adorable seed packets, they put their pictures on them…right up my alley!) We sat down to this:

All I could think was (well two thoughts actually) ‘this will be FUN’, and ‘for ME???!!!’.  We got to keep everything you see, and made some cute floral crafts with them.  Pics to follow if I can find another Fiskateer that has posted them!

We had so much Fiska-Fun, check out the girls – the 5 trainers are in the front row – I’m having scissor-envy over the large pairs they have, and those babies actually work! I’m in the back row, center.  I must have just taken off my orange headband!

Other January events included my ‘big job’ of the year, badges and certificates for LEAD, the local Scout Council annual training event, a Room With A Past opening and ok so I have to admit…with everything going on, it looked like Christmas Day around here until the last week of January. 

Here’s to a fun February!
