I'ld like to start by Introduce you all to Scrappy the Bear. Also know as… Croppy, Crappy, Snappy & Pappy) For some hilarious reason, no one could say his name!?!? What's up with that!?!?
This cute little fella went around from crop station to station looking for a good time (home). When the big cheese – oops I mean boss "Kathy – President of the Band Organization said "Where is Scrappy" This is when she called him by his 'correct' name.. LOL who ever Scrappy was sitting with got to keep him! Scrappy's mom had a dozen of him at birth and picked ONE Name!!!! Imagine that, if you will!?!?
Through out the day you would find Scrappy hangin' out at my Stampin' Up! Demonstration Table watching as I helped the girls with the Make It Take It I had brought. He was such a flirting – a real ladies
Man Bear! He said it was the COOLEST Table THERE!
Every time someone would walk by my table, he'd shout out… Big Shot here, come and play with my Big Shot! Shy he wasn't…. LOL I just know his mom will be calling me to purchase one, he won't stop talking about it!
And if I can tell you a secret – but you have to PROMISE you don't tell any…. 'Shh – come closer…. " Kathy was getting ready to send 'another' Scrappy visiting the Scrapper's… and she handed him to me… and said would you like him? I said, yes, but let's make this fair. In 2 minutes… say 'Where is SCRAPPY… and I'll 'WINHIM" (BIG WINK) So that is what we did! WOO HOO…
But what was funnier is, I had my Stampin' Up! Smock on and Scrappy was in my pocket, a little below my stomach…. (just setting the scene for you)
Well, all of a sudden one of the 'crazy' scrappers went to GRAB for HIM! I forgot he was in my VERY FRONT POCKET – and stepped back, almost jumping back - okay almost RAN away - then we laughed SO hard, she was trying to 'steal him' so she could have him! I said, sorry but I already WON him! So for the rest of the day, when this crazy gal and I were near each other we did the 'Football Tackle stand' LOL It was SO FUNNY!!

Oh yes, and what would a Crop be with out a Massage Therapist? Marty hard at work – making the Scrappers better then new after he was through with them!
Do you live in the Ocean County area (New Jersey) and would like to learn more about Massage Therapy? If so, I highly recommend Marty Fitzgerald email@example.com who works out of Toms River, NJ. He also travels and does 'in home' visits.
All kidding aside for a 'brief' moment – if you don't mind. I never get personal, but I really would like to share what has been making my chronic pain bearable! I have FMS, TMJ and bad sciatica and he has made a world of difference in my health!
If you have soreness, back pain, sore feet, what ever allies you, email him and see if he can help you. Let him know I highly recommended you, just as a reference.
In the winter I was seeing Marty once a week. In the Spring and Summer I'm good with every other week. But you can see him, once a month or when ever you want. Ask for a Massage Gift Certificate for a birthday or holiday gift!
Last year was the fist winter Marty worked on me, and normally I am so stiff I don't get much stamping done. But thanks to Marty - I was able to thanks to the massages. I attended the Stampin' Up! Leadership in Orlando, Florida in January and ranked the top 5in sales in my upline's group of over 1,000 during SAB SALE-A-BRATION in February & March.. which would NOT have been possible with out the massages!
I do Stampin' Up! part time mainly because of my illness but now that I have a better handle on my pain management, it is so wonderful!
Thank you for letting me share this with you.
Have a relaxing day!
