At the Fiskars Birthday Bash in Epcot, I was honored to be named Fiskateer of the year. I should have blogged this weeks ago, but life has got in the way of many things I should do.
Mickey Mouse was introduced and all of us who had run with our cameras to get pictures (you are dealing with 60 or so scrapbookers) was asked to sit down. Then we were asked to all stand up. The fiskateer leads all stood in a row and asked questions. If you had done these things they asked you stayed standing up. Have you met the Hershey Kiss, yes. Have you gone more than 100 miles to a crop, of course. Have you been on a party bus, will never forget that one, yes. Have you welcomed new fiskateers, yes. You get the idea. It took a while until there was just me and one other standing and my heart was racing because I had suddenly realized what was happening. Have you ever held a charity crop for Lupus. It was me.
I was Fiskateer of the Year 2009.
This moment will always stand out as one of the highlights of my life. There are so many great Fiskateers.
I was awarded large personalized scissors and a tote with my name on it by Mickey Mouse in a tuxedo and Suzanne Fanning. I just was so surprised I wish someone would have told me to shut my mouth. I cannot describe how proud I was at that moment and the love I felt from my fellow fiskateers.
I have received so many emails and pms congratulating me. I thank each and everyone of you.
The one thing I must add is that I could not have done all the things I do without the help of my merry band-Mary, Sue, Gail, Laura, Rose and Suzie. Also, my daughter, Robin has helped me immensely throughtout this last year.
Basically, I want to say- Thank You! Fiskateers Rock!
