Hershey Fisk*a*Friendzy...

Wow! Wendy Jo, one of the Lead Fisk*a*teers hosted this amazing one day event. It was sponsored by Fiskars, which is a wonderful and caring company. I sent an email to Wendy Jo prior to the event asking if she needed any help and she replied by asking me to help at this spectacular event. I was so honored to help in anyway I could. A few of the things I got to do is assist in setting up the room and passing out Fiskars tools and goodies!The most important part was getting to know Wendy Jo, Debby, and Pammie Jo on a personal level and calling them my friends! Equally as important, was making new friends while I was passing out the great prizes!

These are the 5 Lead Fisk*a*teers!

"Hummelstown House!" Jim and I ate Sunday brunch here and we are so glad we did! This is a definite stop if you are ever in Hummelstown, PA. I can still taste the carmel french toast!!!!
One last stop, "Fancy That" in Hummelstown, PA. Were you wondering why we were in Hummelstown? Wendy Jo told me there was a scrapbook store and if you know anything about me, I was not going to give up a chance to see another store. I walked into the store and the Fisk*a*teers began coming out of the woodwork. The picture below does not include all of the girls because some were too busy shopping to stop and smile for the camera! We began our weekend dressed in orange and ended the weekend dressed in pink, imagine that!
Goodbye PA! One of the 4 tunnels my husband and I went through! Here we come Michigan! Do you think I was crazy to drive over 1100 miles to attend this event? I would do it again in a heartbeat. New friends, PRICELESS!
