Kickin' it up a notch.

First off- let me just address all of you who want pictures here. They are forthcoming. I promise. I think I may post them over a period of time, just so I don't overexcite some of you with too much of me- downright happy- blissful, even- at once. But don't worry they're a comin'.
The really neat thing for me isn't actually even posing with these fun people, because I can PhotoShop myself {and I've done it before...seriously} into a picture with them, but it's about witnessing their creativity and passion for life and art and all things inspiring in person. Talk about an experience! I'm feeling a certain vibe with these "people" despite the fact that I don't necessarily do what they do (which is make scrapbook pages and albums)- and I may even catch the "bug" before I leave and actually start to do it in my own life. I'm walking the line at this point...and the terrific part is how good it feels!
Just being around such a wealth of creativity and talent has made me want to kick it up in my own self. My level of "coolness" has just about peaked out {if that's possible} by rubbing elbows with all the "greats" of the scrapbook industry.
I'm thinking that the let-down that's gonna hit me early next week while I'm emptying the dishwasher and doing laundry is gonna be a bummer- but I'll have proof in pictures of the feeling I've got right now. I'll just have to print a bunch out- sticking up on the fridge and make myself happy all over again.
"Seacrest out." Where'd that come from?! Nitty.Gritty. out! =)

Ha ha, you said yesterday you probably wouldn't post again while you were there but I had a feeling you would be unable to resist.

Being around creative people is very cool. I'm glad you're having such a blast.
