What's New?

It's been a while since I've posted -- not because I had nothing to share, but because I've been SO busy!

So, this happened:

Gina, Rina and Mishy
Gina K and I...she's so sweet and petite!
Wreath Builder tools and kit
Since I missed meeting Gina K at her shop in Wisconsin last June, I hit the "spontaneous button" and flew up to San Jose one Friday morning to meet Gina K and her daughter Rina at The Island's Creative Escape in Los Gatos. I was so excited to learn how to use the awesome Wreath Builder kit from Gina herself! Got back on the plane a few hours later and was home in no time.

And then Mom and I enjoyed celebrating Taylored Expressions' fifth Stamp Joy event in Ankeny, IA:

Wow! One of the food stations at the Friday Night Gala
Taylor's Make A Splash watercolor class
We learned so much and created beautifully colorful cards
From Susan Block's Get Stenciled class
Debbie Olson shared some Copic tips-n-tricks
Outside Memory Bound Scrapbooks -- SO funny!
Spent a snowy Sunday afternoon at AR Workshop...
...creating a Christmas centerpiece box like the one above.
We made 22 handmade cards this weekend, plus a vintage Christmas mason jar and greenery arrangement, and then the wooden Christmas centerpiece box, too! Mom and I definitely got our craft on this past weekend!

Now I'm preparing for our October card making classes here in the San Diego area. Check them out by clicking on the CLASSES tab above -- we've got six gorgeous Christmas cards lined up at the end of this month.

Keep it crafty, San Diego!

Pin It!
