Sunny Days of August

The sunny days of summer are beginning to wind down, but we celebrated August at The Making Place this Saturday, creating beautiful cards and tags using Graphic 45's Time To Flourish. I met lots of new crafters and we had a fantastic time together...

Katie and Sue
This mother and daughter team won the prize for traveling the furthest to attend -- they live in Albania!!

Kim and Joann
The dynamic duo from Murrieta once stopped to shop, then came back for more! So glad they decided to join us. Who knew chocolate would play such a big role...cheers!

Michelle, Madeline, Sandy, Geri and Carol
Carol brought her friends on a road trip from Norwalk, and although they didn't win for traveling furthest, they're a great bunch and it was a pleasure to work with these ladies. And don't forget Sandy peeking from behind the "kilted" tag sample!

I thoroughly enjoyed spending my afternoon with this group of creative women. We had a sold out class today at The Making Place in Escondido and our next one is scheduled for Saturday, September 5. Be sure and call the store (760-739-8605) for more information and to reserve your spot. Hope to see you there!

Back To School

Next week our kids go back to school (at least in my school district). It's hard to believe that summer in nearly over! But, at least seasonally speaking, that means autumn is just around the corner.

HERE's my inspiration
We're gearing up for fall colors, turning leaves, cooler weather, and maybe even a sweater or two [NOTE: unless you live here in San Diego where it's nearly 100 degrees and those things are simply happy thoughts!]

So, if you're in the San Diego area and want to enjoy those fall feelings, why not join us on Sunday, September 13 at 1:00 p.m. at our Playful Birthday cards workshop? We've got space for you and a friend to enjoy an afternoon of "playful" creativity and you'll go home with five handmade birthday cards!

Click on the CONTACT ME tab above and let me know to reserve a spot or two for you! Space is limited, but we'll squeeze you in!
