Southern Charm in Charlotte

Sorry this took so long to post, but I had to recuperate from my waylaid flight home. Lightening in Charlotte delayed the flight, missed the connection in Phoenix and thought I would have to spend the night there, but Steve (the hubster) found a connecting flight through Vegas that got me into Salt Lake at 2:40 am! Couldn’t fall asleep until 5am! Now I’m all out of sorts sleep-wise.

Despite the horrendous flights into and out of Charlotte I had a great time with our Southern Paper Crafters at CKC. They are always so wonderful to hang with: friendly, warm, enthusiastic and funny.
of the highlights of being in Charlotte is getting a hug from my dear old friend, Kitty Cox.

I’ve known kitty from my very old days of Rubberstampauction.com, she followed me to my store, the Stamp Attic and was a loyal customer of mine for years. She is a sweetie and I love her!

I absolutely HAVE to share a funny story that some of you will (who take my classes at CKCs) surely get SICK of hearing, but oh my, It was so cool, I had goosebumps!

At the end of each class I always do a draw for prizes. I keep the ticket stubs in my apron pocket. I gave out 2 of the prizes and on the last one I ask “does anyone feel lucky” and this sweet young thing (I’m guessing 16…sorry If I’m wrong Sam!) says “I do…it’s my birthday today!”. I ask her name and start rubbing my hand over the pocket in a mock attempt at being physic.

Then, feeling guilty, anticipating the disappointment, start making a disclaimer because I know darn well the odds of me picking her name out of 50+ names is nil and then…drum roll…I pick her name!!!!!

I didn’t realize it at first, but my smart students did and I heard a collective gasp! I really AM PHYSIC!!! Well, at least I was for that little moment in time. We all had a good laugh and I treasured it for what it was…a really good story to tell at my next CKC!!

So, just when I thought southern charm was reserved for PaperCrafters, I noticed at the airport this DARLING row of white rocking chairs. It that adorable or what? I manhandled my bags, dug out my camera, because I knew I had to take a picture.

Until next time ladies, see beauty! Sue
