Who’s That Ghost Flopsey by Barbara Anders

Totally Witchin’ by Jessica Rone

Who’s That Ghost Flopsey, Totally Witchin‘ and Ghoulish Label set by Cindy Haffner

Ghoulish Label set by Kirsten DuBosque (Emma’s future MIL)

This week, we’ve got a dancing triple header!  We went for a lesson on Monday night, have one tonight and also have a group lesson and party on Thursday.

We are “interviewing” another dance studio and thinking about making a change which would put us closer to home, and also save us some money.  You WOULD NOT believe the cost of dancing lessons!  SERIOUSLY.  The get you in with a cheap *introductory* package, and then almost kill you from sticker shock once you’re hooked.  Criminy.  We both looked at each other, and decided the only way we were going to afford dancing was either not eating or selling organs we weren’t using.  The smaller, privately owned studio that is close to us (and by close I mean 25 minutes instead of an hour) is about 50% less than the chain we’ve been going to.  So, it is really worth considering.  We aren’t looking to compete, or anything really fancy, we just want something fun to do, and to do it capably, ykwim??

Wish me luck, and cross your fingers we make the right decision!

In case you missed it…

I’m going to post some of the AMAZING creations from the MFT Customer Blog Hop. On the 29th of each month, Joanne invites a few stampers to hop along to Celebrate MFT Day.

But FIRST…there are some things I’d like to share with all of you. There are some changes (and lots of fun) coming to MFT starting on October 7th.  I’ll share a few words (that could be thought of as hints, but I’m NOT spilling the beans.  I’ve been warned and scolded)

Simplify

Prioritize

Joy

I also wanted to share with you something fun on a personal note.  My Hubby and I are taking dancing lessons!  We started a few weeks ago, (him a little hesitantly…) and both have discovered we LOVE it!  It’s something that is just for the two of us, no kids and no work, just Kim and Martin.  As a side benefit, it’s an opportunity for me to follow his lead.  Martin is the quieter of the two of us, and it is a really wonderful thing to watch him become more confident in his ability to lead me, and for once, for me to follow!

The first time we’d learned enough steps to sequence a partial dance (Rumba, with a dip!) it was pure magic!  I can’t describe it, but I literally started crying!

I thought I’d show you a pic of my fancy dancing shoes, I {heart{ them like nobody’s business!  And it’s kind of special that I can only wear them on the dance floor, the shoes become part of the experience of us doing something wonderful and special.

And wthout further delay, feast your eyes on the Customer Hop paper eye candy!

Your first MFT card…and a prize!

Since it’s TGIF, I thought it would be fun to take a look at how far we’ve all come, and to offer a little candy!

Let’s all post a link to the VERY FIRST MFT card we ever made!  Here’s mine…made with Hare for the Holidays, as I was testing sizes out for the production in Dec of 2006.  CRAZY, huh?

I will choose one winner on Tuesday to receive:

*A Hare for the Holidays stamp set AND

*A August Gifty Girl Kit!

How fun!  I can’t wait to see what you post!
