We got up yesterday and went on a 2 hour helicopter ride over the active volcano, beautiful valleys that have waterfalls, thousands of feet tall, and a coastline that was exquiste. We got in our little red mustang convertible and drove to Kona. this coast town is so historic and looked like a postcard.
We had a 6 course dinner last night and Sinbad then entertained (Wayne Brady cancelled only one day before). He was 10 times funnier than I expected.
We got up this morning and went on a whale watching tour. We saw hundreds and some very close. They would not hold still for me to get a "perfect" shot, but it was great. While having buffet lunch on the terrace we saw a sea turtle. I jumped up, climbed down the bank and fed it. Yes I have the picture.
We have shopped this afternoon and are getting ready for another night out.
Supervalu really know how to throw parties.
Leave you comments to win a Hawaiian souvenir.

In Hawaii, finally.

It took 24 hours to get to Hawaii. The weather was terrible yesterday morning and eveywhere we went we had delays, but we made it.
Today we rented a little red mustang and drove from Kona to Hilo, stopping at every scenic overlook (and some that weren't) and had a wonderful day. This evening Supervalu (my husband's wholesale company that brought us here) had a wonderful dinner and luau. They even have a kodak kiosk where we can print out free pictures. They brought a beach bag full of every snack known to man (chocolate, twizzlers, reeses and much more)
Tomorrow morning we are taking a helicopter ride over many of the beautiful waterfalls and the erupting volcano. I am posting a picture of what I can see when I wake up in the morning-right from the bed.
Don't forget to sign up for the blog giveaway -I'll draw when I get home.

We're leaving on a jet plane......

My daughter, Robin, and I are leaving for Hawaii Sunday. I am so excited. We are going to go on a helicopter ride and see the volcano erupting and beautiful waterfalls. We are going on a ride throught the rainforest in a pinztrek. I hope we go whale watching and I know we are driving around the island next Monday. Wayne Brady is the entertainment one night, a luau , The Steve Miller band, and the elder President Bush and Barbara are speaking one morning. This will be a trip of a lifetime and I am thrilled to take Robin along and share these things with her.

If anyone would like a souvenir from Hawaii, with a little Fiskars goodies thrown in for good measure, leave a comment here about where your dream vacation would be. When I get back I will draw from the names and send out some happy mail!

The store is full

I have spent all week putting out new product. My back is killing me. We got 3 Notions orders, Basic Grey, Cosmo Cricket, My Mind's Eye Penny Lane, Fiskars (yes, we got all the scallop punches and stamps), Heidi Grace, Making Memories Garden Patch , Prima and I can't even remember what else. I'm sure I am leaving something out.
I have had to take product off the shelf to make room for new. Agood problem to have.
I am so excited that we are having a crop tomorrow and there will be alot of Fiskateers. This group is my second family, customers, and Fiskateers. We take trips together, celebrate birthdays together and scrap together. What more could you want.
I am posting a layout I did for a class that I am taking from May Flaumn at Big Picture Scrapbooking.

The Sock Fairy came to The Scrapbook Page

Fiskateers is more than just winning prizes and showing our layouts. It is challenging each other to be better people. It is caring and sharing. Last month Fiskteers issued a challenge to each of us to collect socks. These socks are being donated to homeless shelters. I was surprised that I had never thought about collecting so simple as socks- a basic need. I jumped on this challenge and made a hamper to collect the socks. I even donated 10% of sales for a week to buy extra socks. I organized a sock crop and lo, and behold, the sock fairy made a visit. I am not above making a fool of myself for a good cause.
I am very proud that we ended up collecting 310 pairs of socks. That is 3100 toes that will be warmer.
I enjoy the fun part of fiskateers, but this felt very rewarding.
