The good news is that they let me in CANADA. I have traveled the world and CANADA is the only country that seems to think I am doing something SHADY to visit them. ha! Actually, I think the security and border officers are doing a great job. I have been asked questions here I had never even thought about would be asked-
Have you ever had a DUI? (nope, I don't drink)
Are you a felon? (nope, ha ha....)
Have you ever been arrested? (never once... )
Are you carrying any drugs? (nope, but I do have some Tylenol) Yes, I'm scared not to be REALLY honest.
Why are you here? (then about 20 questions later.... What do you design? You travel the world to do this? Why are you coming here to show how others how to keep memories preserved and create projects? ) I like to bring lots of project samples to display and last year I came and was questioned why anyone would bring 3 suitcases for a three day visit. This year I only brought TWO. ha!
PS... I love VANCOUVER... I love it here... I really LOVE CLIPPER STREET SCRAPBOOK COMPANY. Yes, that was bold and powerful. This company is THRIVING, booming, excelling at a harder time in the industry. Deanna Hutchinson is one of the store owners (with her parents) who knows how to run a business. It starts with ONE simple word.

it's so important I typed it FIVE times.
We are such close friends and I can talk to her business or as a friend nonstop. We both just LOVE what we do. She encourages and supports me. Her company is very successful and I tell others about her. WHAT is she doing right? I am so thankful to be here and with everyone that supports her and my company.
I hope you will each think of your own life. WHAT excites you? WHAT is your PASSION?
I am teaching two workshops today and I am always GRATEFUL for this opportunity. I feel to me the connections and teaching and making appearances to support my company is vital. I gain so much and I value the stories, the support, and the hugs I get. I have been showered with love here. THANK YOU so much girls!!! I love you.
HAPPY SATURDAY... go do something FIERCE today!!!!
