The Minnesota Report

I went on my last trip for Rusty Pickle the weekend before Halloween. I haven't blogged about it because I really enjoyed this trip {and all my trips this year} and didn't want it to end. I also set a goal for myself and accomplished it on this trip. It felt good, really good. Here are a few of the things that I don't want to forget about Minnesota:
This was the view from my classroom at convention center. I had some amazing classes this convention. Everyone's creative mojo was really going. I don't know if it was the fall weather, the city, or maybe it was just the view out the classroom window; but everyone was wonderful in my classes.

Look who I met ! Can you believe it? She is just as cool in person.... and her son is darling. Go check out Christine's blog. If you have never peeked, it will be inspiring. Promise. Rhonda at The Scrapbook Shop got word that I adored this girl, so she surprised me and had her stop by on Sunday afternoon. I wish we would have had the chance to grab some hot chocolate and talk for awhile....next time for sure.

This was my 1st class at a scrapbook store outside of the Quad Cities. It was at an awesome store called The Scrapbook Shop. They had so many inspiring layouts and creative projects....I loved teaching there! Nancy, Rhonda {the owner}, and Donna.....I had a wonderful time with you all and I can't wait to come back next year at the new store!
Here is the crew in the Rusty Pickle booth. Alaina {in the middle} is the education coordinator for Rusty Pickle and she has been AMAZING to work with. I have so much fun when I get to travel with her. We get pretty silly together, yet she knows scrapbooking like no other! She is one of the reasons I can't wait for next year....I miss you girl! Her sister worked with us this trip and I hope to see her again....it was good times, good times.
And last, but not least, every time I travel I have something happen that makes me REALLY miss my kids and wish that I had them with me. This time I was at the Mall of America and who do we see? Yep, Sid the Science Kid. Ella adores him, so I had to have my picture taken with him.


  1. You just became the envy of the Meikle household. The boys are freaking out that they know someone who got to meet the REAL Sid the Science Kid. Man, Sister It's All Good is SO COOL!!!!!

  2. Looks like fun!! Are ya home for the rest of the year??

  3. BTW, I love your snowman banner! VERY cute!

  4. So cool! It must have been quite a ride this year!
