One person's trash is another person's treasure. This week I have been especially blessed with some great finds at my local thrift and antique shops. My best bargain? An old photo album from the 1920-30s. It has literally hundreds of old photos in it. Lots of beachy ones too...can you say pin-up girls (and guys - wink!)? So, in honor of my recent find, I thought it was time to play another fun game. It's time to guess how much you thought my photo album cost me. I'll leave the contest open until Friday night (unless someone guesses the price exactly.) We'll do it 'Price is Right' style and the winner will be the first person who guesses closest to the price without going over. Winner will receive a packet of scrapbook supplies valued at over $50. So guess away.
In other news, busy, busy, busy around here (just like most of you I'm sure). Rick and his buddy went down to Seattle for a Mariners game last weekend. Seattle won and Rick got to eat at a Cheesecake Factory, so he was a happy camper. While Rick was out, I watched the first DVD of the series Planet Earth. It's absolutely stunning. Apparently the US Discovery Channel aired portions of the documentary last year. The version I'm watching is the full BBC version. If you're a fan of documentaries (like me!), this series is a must see. I've only watched the first 3 episodes, so I'm totally looking forward to renting the next DVD in the series. I've been asked about Melissa Frances and whether we were attending Memory Trends. We have made the decision as a company to not attend Memory Trends, nor release new product for the show. You can look forward to an awesome release at CHA Winter in the new year.
As I sign out, I want to leave you with a song from a group I have recently become totally enamored with. They remind me of the bluegrass music I used to listen to with my dad. The group is a trio of talented Canadian musicians called The Wailin' Jennys.
