Mania is ALMOST here!

It's hard to believe that Mania will be starting in just 3 days! Hope everyone is as excited as I am!  I'm busy finishing up some projects and my craft desk is a mess! But it's so worth it!

I'm very pleased to announce that Mallie from the marketing department at Provo Craft will be joining us at Mania! She has plan an iron on vinyl project for us for Friday before dinner. So be sure to stop by the "classroom" {the room across the elevator/staircase foyer} to make a project.

Mallie and Provo Craft will be providing a luncheon for everyone attending Mania on Saturday! This will be held in the other meeting rooms, next to the "classroom". And, she will have a surprise guest join us from 1 to 3 pm on Saturday! I have some guesses as to who the surprise guest might be, but Mallie won't tell. She wants it to be a surprise!

The weather forecast for Atlanta looks good! Maybe a little rain on Thursday but sunny and a little chilly {for us southerners!}.

As some of you are aware, due to a glitch, I don't have access to the Circle forums on the Cricut MB. So if you have any questions or concerns, please send me an email or PM.  See you all soon!!!

It's already September ~ Mania is getting closer!

I just ordered the SWAG bags! I might even show a sneak peak of them once the color is confirmed.

Mary has already started the online CTMH party and will be giving away Artbooking carts! {The link to her page is
Click on the join button for Circle Mania 3}

PC has generously donated an E2 for the OWH Card Drive and I've already received 10 cards!!!

We'll be having a SU online party and a Thirty-One online party! If there is a CM rep attending Mania and you want to host an online party, let me know! {Assuming all the changes to CM doesn't include total disbursement of the company~I haven't been following what's going on with CM.}

Renee will be teaching classes again and has made samples {that someone already saw!} which are awesome!

The hotel is on track with their renovations! So we'll have new carpets and wallpaper and paint and furnishings! {Although, I thought it was a pretty nice hotel already!}

Plus, there are some fun things in the works with PC and the LSS {all 3 of them} but it's too soon to announce them all! 

Looking into a U-stream broadcast from Mania {even if it's just a short one}!

More to come in the next few weeks!

Card Drive for Operation Write Home

Once again, we will be having a card drive for Operation Write Home at Mania! At the last Mania, we collected 1010 handmade cards for our troops overseas!

And, once again, PC has generously donated an E2 to be given to one lucky card maker!

Here's how it will work. . .for every 10 cards you make and donate, you get one ticket into the drawing for the E2. You can make as many cards as you want {just make sure they meet the OWH guidelines}.  The cards can be ones you make just for this card drive or they can be cards you've made previously to have on hand or for challenges or design teams. As long as it meets the OWH guidelines, it counts! You can make multiples of the same card {no more than 10 of each design}.

And, you can participate even if you aren't attending Mania! You can bring your cards with you to Mania or you can mail them to me if you aren't attending. [cool]

Here's the link to the OWH website:

All cards that are mailed in to me should be received by November 6, 2013.

How many cards do you think we can collect at Mania 3?
