"Getting Ready For Stampmania"

Today I am starting to pack for LA. This is my 4th stamp mania. I can't wait. I am leaving Friday morning at 7am. LA is a 7 hour drive for me. I love the drive though. It is mostly one freeway so it is easy. It is also a very beautiful drive. Mountains, vineyards, and orchards practically the whole way. I plug in my I-Pod and sing the 80's as if I was in the band. I just downloaded Monster Ballads and I can't wait to hear them again. Remember Cinderella, Warrant, Firehouse, Winger, Kix, Europe, and Foreigner just to name a few. Last year, I lost my voice a little singing on the drive down. I don't care who sees me singing my heart out. I don't get embarrassed about that. You are going to die when you see all the stuff I bring with me. You would think that will be stamping 24 hours straight with all the stuff I am bringing. Friday I am meeting some of the ladies at the Fabric Barn then we are going to the hotel to stamp all night. The fabric barn rocks. I think there is about 12 bolts of fabric and the rest of the store is wall to wall ribbon. All match Stampin' Up too. Oooooo I can't wait. I am getting more excited as I type. I didn't stop at the fabric barn last year cause I still had a big bag of ribbon. I still have a bunch left but I need some new fresh colors. Saturday's event is from noon until 9pm. Stamping until 6 then we go to dinner at the same Italian restaurant. They have a buffet for us. Good food, good friends, and good times. I will try to post something later today. Right now I need to get my crap together. Can you say crap in a blog? LOL Have a great day everyone.

Safe travels. You have incredible musical taste! I grew up in the same town as Lou Graham (Foreigner's lead singer) and I have seen him perform live several times.
