Hitting the Road

Hey there, long time no see! My summer has been a blast...teaching loads of card making classes all over San Diego (big shout out to my buddies at The Stamp Addict!), checking off tons on my never-ending To Do List, and visiting/road tripping with my BFF in northern CA.

Cheesy tourists at Alcatraz Island

In keeping with the summer road trip theme, our August card making workshops will feature The Great Outdoors by Carta Bella and some stinkin' cute stamps and embellies, too! Here are just a couple of the cards we're making in our August card workshops:

Mmmm, donuts

Homer Simpson loves donuts. I adore donuts and consider myself quite the connoisseur. Let's hope that's the limit to our similarities!

That's why I'm so excited about June's card making workshops. We'll use Paper Made Bakery kits that include Lawn Fawn's super adorable Perfectly Plaid 6x6 paper pad and Donut Worry mini stamp set, plus lots of other goodies. I've been inspired by several awesome designers using these products. Here are a couple samples of the cards and tags we'll make...

There are two opportunities to join us in the San Diego area: Sunday, June 12 in Scripps Ranch/San Diego and Sunday, June 26 in Fallbrook. Check out the CLASSES tab above for the details. Contact me to register!

Grab a raised glazed and enjoy your day!

Makes Us Happy

Today I'm sharing a card made by Carol, one of my super creative students, created with the new Lawn Fawn set called "Rooting For You" and her brand, spanking new MISTI tool.

Created & shared by Carol Dacey

We love how crisp and bright solid stamps come out when using the MISTI. And how adorable are those root veggies?!

Gotta love when our crafty purchases make us look so good, right?

Ode to Magnolia

So, here's a virtual tour of Day 2 on our girls' trip. We'd made it to Waco to begin our "pilgrimage" to all things Magnolia, then circled and found a great parking spot at 6th and Webster...The Silos and Magnolia Market.

Welcome to a home designer's haven
We'd heard tales of three-hour waits in line and saw the ropes that would weave guests in caterpillar fashion to the entry. Luckily, we walked (bounced) right in! It was definitely crowded with fans and shoppers, but worth the trip.

Additional retail area, for your shopping pleasure

The now familiar Magnolia logo
The outdoor space surrounding the buildings is a well thought out space. It's a family friendly area with lawn games, tables, food trucks of all kinds, and a new garden area and shop coming soon.

Chip's Willys Jeep
This is going to be SO cool!

Bean bag toss anyone?

Who'd say no to a baby goat?

Now, I may need to go back to Waco to check out this soon-to-be-finished part of The Silos...Magnolia Bakery! They're still putting the finishing touches on this cute little building, but it's sure to be a sweet treat when it's complete.

A diamond in the rough (likely to stay rough, er, rustic)

Supposed to open in May 2016

We spotted this moving truck along Austin Avenue. I'd love to have this pull up in front of my house, Chip and Joanna hopping out of the cab!

Spotted in a parking lot as we headed to The Silos...
Stay tuned for a few more Adventures in Waco posts. I love heading out with Mom to see what kind of "trouble" we can get into. Call your mom today and tell her HOWDY!!
