Yipee! The Friends of the Isanti Area library have been working hard to create a public library presence in the Isanti area. We are making baby steps toward the big goal and really happy to have achieved nonprofit status (501c3) and now a library link site to East Central Regional Library will become a reality. The plans are to be open on Wednesday 10am-4pm. The big question is what day will it begin? Can we be up and running by Oct. 21st to correspond with National Friends of Libraries Week? Stay tuned to find out!

a new blog - Cutting Above

Time to share the second item I am wishing to win...a gypsy - for scappin' on the go, and also because I don't have DS and it looks fun after watching a couple of videos. So the big chattering right now is the airing of the gypsy on the HSN Sept. 24. Should be interesting viewing at 12am! so how did I find out about this shopping opportunity (being that I don't watch much of the TV)? Well one blog link lead to another and another and eventually I discovered Cutting Above a blog that just lauched! To celebrate the great blog, Cutting Above is offering two Gypsys, generously donated by Provocraft. If you want a chance to win, visit the blog Cutting Above. Better yet, visit the blog to discover all kinds of crafty news, tutorials, and videos!
I survived the first two weeks of school. The students are settling into the routine and the brains are humming. Personally I am exhausted. I helped extra at bus time with the Kindergarten kids and keeping them together is like moving frogs in a wheelbarrow! Eventually everyone made it to the right place/person and I am embracing the weekend. I had a blast at the Cricut swarm last week and want to keep the momentum going on scrapbooking. So, this evening I started to catch up on some blogs I like to visit and checked out the cricut message board. Well I am excited to have found a couple ways to win cricut stuff! Provo craft is celebrating it's 100th cricut cartridge release by giving away 100 carts. You can help with the celebration by clicking here to see the 100th cart. Winter Woodlands.

Back to School!

It is time, school starts tomorrow and I will begin again the fun of hanging out with primary students in the library. My lessons are planned, books are shelved - I am totally ready, but as always a little leap of nerves and excitement creeps in on the eve of the first day of school. To add to my excitement, I am going to my first ever Cricut swarm on Friday and don't know what to take! Okay, the toothbrush and jammies for the overnight at my sister-in-laws, but what supplies will I need? How much scrapbook paper? Do I have enough adhesives? And I still need to organize the photos I want to scrapbook...mostily my daughter's because here graduation party will be at the end of this year! Welcome fall and the new school year!
