TOTE-ALLY COOL DELIGHTFUL ENCHANTMENT
- Thursday, 7 September 2006 As usual, the Thursday night Blue Room GANG was at their best again. All-My-Memories’ Tote-Ally Cool Tool Caddy was the guest of honour. I gave Teacher’s old pet (now Bev don’t get jealous) her pink and brown Tote-Ally-Cool bag that she ordered. Well I must say the response from her was probably the most ‘enthusiastic scrappers delight' I have ever witnessed. The plastic wrapping was off before it touched base on the table and Libby spent most of the evening packing, organising and personalizing her Tote-Ally-Cool bag. Her latest Scrapathon’s name tag and inspirational quotes were dug out from some where (don’t want to know from where) and attached lovingly and meticulously to the bag, just in case someone did not know a Libby who walks around with a tongue twister for a surname (HOUAREAU).
‘Colour Co-ordinating’ was the buzz phrase for the evening – if it was pink it was inside Libby’s new Tote-Ally-Cool bag. Us poor other soles me, Nicola, Stella, Carol and Robyn had to hold on tight to whatever had the merest tint of pink. Nicola, especially, had to do serious bargaining with Libby to keep her pink top on – now Nicola there wasn’t a man in the house and Libby’s Tote-Ally-Cool bag was drooling over your pink top – shame on you. Libby did however manage to finish her single page she started the previous week during the last hour of the class – and of course the colour scheme was pink. Libby seeing that your Tote-Ally-Cool bag received a lot of patting, stroking and petting I think we should christen it ‘JJ’ (for Julia Junior). Well then, JJ took up most of the table space leaving Stella, who sat opposite Libby, hunched up at the corner of the table feeling like she was chained to the table’s leg. The candy jar was viciously cleaned out and my darling Thursday night gang left me a lonesome PS choccie in the bottom of the candy jar with the very appropriate slogan ‘I(we) Love you’. Now if that is not sucking up to the teacher – I don’t know what is. Unfortunately there can only be one Teacher’s Pet, who still needs to be discovered. The AMM Tote-Ally-Cool bag lives up to its name and is really very cool. It has zillions of pockets for caddying all your scrapping/beading tools and embellishments. Everything is kept neat and compact for working at home or going for lessons/scrapping days. If any one of my students would like to order an AMM Tote-Ally-Cool bag the cost is R300/bag. Just email me on firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order. Collections are done every Wednesday.
Thank you girls for all the fun we have in the classes. Love you all.

PS: LIBBY'S COMMENTS (Beverley Beware!)
Aaahhhh, look at my cute little bag......isn't she lovely! I spent another two hours at least packing even more stuff into her when I got home, It's amazing how much you can actually fit?? Thanks teacher for always brightening up our Thursday's so much! I always leave your lessons feeling rejuvenated and happy! (Just one thing though.........what's that dodgy comment about the teachers pet still being discovered???? I'm right here??). If Bev's still gonna carry on about wanting to be the pet, we can maybe just pretend that she is every now and then? - I don't mind that..........Just don't let her find out that IT'S REALLY ME THAT'S THE TEACHERS PET!!
Hello There from Stella I rushed home in great anticipation after receiving a message : "Check my Blog" I was NOT DISAPPOINTED. Libby I see is still on top form with that darn PINK WONDER of hers, which doesn't really surprise me in the least the way she carried on.....so nauseating!!I I mean childish!! Libby I just hope that your passionate affection for your Pink Tote-Bag is somewhat at its ebb, so it won't be necessary for you to bring it to Thursday class this week, as there is certainly no space for me, you & that darn bag. UNLESS of course teacher gets a special little table for you and the bag, seeing as though you are the self professed "Teachers Pet". After close scrutiny of the message on the blog, I am beginning to wonder whether Libs & Bev are kidding themselves over this " Teachers Pet" issue. I am beginning to wonder if I am not the undisclosed/undercover real "Teachers Pet" or for that matter CAROL or NICOLA. What you think girls? LOVE YOU ALL
PS: Nicola also had her few 'cents' to add:
Wow! You definitely put a smile on our faces teacher. Can't wait for my BLUE bag, stand back Libby... I will be doing my BLUE layout in the BLUE room with my BLUE bag and my coordinated BLUE clothes. Watch out everyone for the next teachers pet in her BLUE!!!!! Love Nicola
You girls certainly add some sparkle to your evenings - I can just imagine the antics going on every Thursday! After seeing and reading your comments on the Totally Cool Bag, I have ordered one - thanks for your enthusiasm Libby! I wait the "Blue Bag" antics. Regards Michelle
PS: Michelle has ordered a Pink and Brown one!
As usual, while the other 'dogs' are fighting about a chicken bone (bag) - BEV runs off with an Ostrich bone (bag)!
"As I am a person of few words, I would just like to add a little something to the blog :- 1. Libby - is that bag big enough for your mouth. I used to think you were my friend but I have learnt a lot of late - but you know what " I STILL LOVE YOU - AND ALL THE THURSDAY LADIES. You are a very special group and are my Tonic to keep me going - not forgetting our amazing teacher ( To whom I am the PET ) 2. Now to Carol, Nicola and Stella ( Please note in alphabetical order so as not to offend anyone - these girls are sooooo devine but such admin. ) I think we must just put all this CHILDISH stuff behind us, because lets face it, there is no competition about teachers pet - it is a well known fact to all - even Scrappers Paradise staff that - wait for it .......... I AM THE TEACHERS PET AND ALWAYS HAVE BEEN. Thanks to Desire and Conroy for putting up with us and giving us something to look forward to - Thursday nights. See you all later - cant wait" Libby's retort:
Hello darling teacher.........what a load of waffle from those OTHER girls in the Thursday class?? But have to say - I quite like Stella's idea about a special table for my gorgeous new bag, perhaps the table could be pink???? And I was also thinking......perhaps we should think about a PINK room???? PS: BEV - I think you might need counselling about that obsession of yours with the teachers pet thing!! Admit defeat - I'll still love you even if you arent the teachers pet XXXX
