Shopping Day

Yesterday was a slow and easy day.

 We started our time off at the General Store checking email and sending  blog posts. Then we walked around the Grand Canyon Village and did a little shopping.  I am very happy I started going back to Curves when I did because the walking this time has been much easier and my legs have only hurt for a few minutes each morning. 

I was able to get a “I hiked the canyon” sticker and I also found a mule sticker for Mike.  We do not like putting stickers on our cars but the RV seems to be fair game.  It will be kind of like a moving scrapbook of stickers on the back wall.
I told Mike I would like to go to all 58 of the National Parks as a bucket list.  I found a book and it seems we have already been to 6 parks.
Mammoth Cave (before kids)
Hot Springs
Carlsbad Caverns
Petrified Forest
Grand Canyon
Glacier Bay 

There are a couple more that I have to check past scrapbooks to see if we were there.   We are only counting parks we have been to together.  It makes me want to start over and go back just for the bumper stickers (hee hee).  Note to self: look online to see if I can order the stickers for the parks we have already been too.

In other news:
I have been trying to keep a distance from the CTMH convention information but could not stand myself and logged into the site and read all of the exciting news. 

Don’t get me wrong. I love going to convention but this year as an entire family we decided to come to the Grand Canyon so it was my decision not to attend but having limited internet access has really helped me not go crazy that I am not at Disneyland.

Back to the news:
Five new colors – Thistle, Glacier, Flaxen, Canary, and Pixie.  I have not seen the colors yet but I know the names.  :-)
Cricut Cartridge – Artfully Sent
New Card Kits
New Embossing Folders

That is really all I know for now.   My pre-release catalog will be waiting for me when I get home.  Then I will be able to sit down with a cup of coffee and study the new catalog. 

One nice bonus about a house sitter is I know the catalogs  will not be outside in the cold feeling unloved.  :-)

As a reminder:  The catalog goes LIVE August 1, 2014.  I will no longer be mailing out catalogs.  You are now able to add a single catalog to your online order.  We have never been able to offer that option to customers and I am so excited about it. Why?  Well for a couple of reasons.

1.  You will no longer have to wait on the media mail option that I have used in the past to get your catalog in the mail. The Media Mail can take up to 2 weeks to deliver your catalog once I mailed it.  YOU will no longer be at the mercy of the consultant and when she can make a post office run.
2.  By ordering your catalog online alone or with an order it comes directly from corporate and normally by Fed Ex so not only will you have a fun box of goodies to play with but a beautiful catalog in a very timely fashion.

If you attend Crop Night then you will get your catalog free that night.

Time to close this post for now.  I do not want to over stay my welcome in the coffee shop I am getting WiFi from and there is only so much I can drink.
I think today will be a lazy day, My kindle is calling.


  1. New colors! I an excited to see them and the new catalog!!! (Unfortunately my wallet may never like you again.). ;-).
    Miss you and glad you are having fun!

  2. What day will these items be online? I know you say August 1st, but will we be able to see them before then?

  3. August 1 is when all online content will be released to customers. That is also the date you can order your catalog online. I have not been home yet to see if I can post photos yet.
