Getting Ready....

Well today seems to be a day for getting ready.....

First - I am getting ready to go out of town for the weekend!!! How fun!!!! I love road trips! I especially love road trips when I get to drive AND I have a way cool car to drive!!! The only thing that is a little sad about this trip is hubby is not around to go with me. (I think I am having a little bit of a blue day.... missing him makes me somewhat blue.)

I do have a friend going with me though - so I don't have to go alone! The funny thing is, her name is Lori too! So everyone always gets confused when the two of us are at the same place at the same time... and now we are driving up together!!! I had to RSVP who would be coming for the weekend events (a baby shower for a dear friend), so I just replied, "The Lori's are coming!" LOL

Second - I'm getting ready to come home from being out of town. I love road trips, vacations and getaways - I really do! But I love to come home even more!!! I am somewhat of a homebody. Well, at least according to hubby! And there is nothing better than coming home to a clean house and fresh sheets!!! Yummy!!! So I have been cleaning and I just washed the sheets and put them on the bed! Oh - I already can't wait to get home!!!

(Now tell me this, is there ANYTHING better than clean, fresh, crisp sheets after a long six hour drive?!?!?! If I had to name one of the best feelings - I would totally have to say it is climbing in my bed after a long day - and there be clean sheets (and yes I am a sheet snob - 600 thread count for me)!!! But man - there is just something about that very first night you put clean sheets on your bed! And have you ever notice how no other night feels that yummy - until you wash the sheets and put them on all fresh again!!!!) Ok, ok, ok.. moving on!

Thirdly - and probably most importantly I am getting ready to execute some major changes within Beloved Keepsakes!! There is a NEW TERMS OF USE! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE if you have downloaded any of my files or if you have purchased any of my files... please download the new terms of use and read them! If you have ANY questions AT ALL - email me! This is very important!

I am moving into the next stage of my business. I plan to start cutting, selling and marketing my titles that I have designed to LSS's, gift shops, etc. I am very very very excited about this. My dear friend Chris helped me re~work my "Beloved Keepsakes" logo. She also helped me come up with packaging, new business cards, and thank you notes!!! So a huge thanks to Chris... I would never be where I am right now without all her help!!!!

Anyway, with the new changes coming up - I spoke to my friend (who's an attorney) and figured I probably needed to make some changes to my TOU. So like I said - please download the new TOU and email me me with any questions or comments.

Ok- well I think that is it for today! I am getting ready to hit the road. I hope you all have a GREAT weekend! Don't forget to pop in on Monday as I there will be a little something something for my readers! Also, don't forget if you haven't already, to stop by Amy's Blog to enter the contest for the cutest little bag album kits she created! The deadline is midnight Sunday (that is Eastern time!!!).

I'll leave you with a few examples of the "New" Beloved Keepsakes packaging! Maybe one day you will see them in your LSS and you can say - "I knew her when"!!!! Bahahahaha!!

Until Next time!

Packaging is VERY nice, Lori.

Just love the new packaging!!!!!
I am afraid I am just the opposite of the "Bed" thing.
I love to crawl into a messy bed. LOL
My hubby (and for the sake of our marriage, LOL) loves the bed as you do, and every day I do "the bed" the way he likes it.
But, when he is out of town, that puppy doesn't get made, straightened, fluffed or nuttin' else.
Enjoy your trip and we will see ya Monday.
Be safe my dear.

Thank goodness we have those high thread count sheets now. When I think back 20 years ago to the rough 180 count sheets I grew up with YUK! If anyone has not tried them (and I know some of you thrifty gals have not) I say run out and splurge...you will not regret it, besides we all deserve the best.

I have to tell you that we have something in common! I love nice clean crisp high count sheets! It is the best!
