Thank you BIG SIS!!!

This weekend I received such a sweet surprise! A package arrived with the daily mail and The Accountant immediately accused me of too much shopping... once again.

Much to my delight it was a gift from my Big Sister, Sheila R. from Blessed and Distressed.

Now I was not "blessed" with a sister in my childhood but I have gained one through Silver Bella. Yes, its a double blessing. I am going in November to this unbelievable event in Omaha, Nebraska and I have a big sister to help me through.

For all of us that are attending our first "Bella" we have been given the opportunity to have a Big Sister who has been through the program before. I will no longer be "distressed" about attending this event alone. Sheila has offered to get me prepared ahead of time and help me navigate the waters once I arrive.

The creations that Sheila posts on her blog..Blessed and Distressed...I know I am in for a world of learning and inspiration.

The chatter and camaraderie before this event is just an unbelievable experience. The excitement grows each day and everyone is helping us Freshman prepare for this great event.

Thank you Sheila for the gift...it made me feel part of the group already and its only May.
