Classes Sales and Fun!

Hello Friends!  I am busy planning classes, teaching and crafting!  It makes my heart happy to be crafting and spending time with friends.  It keeps us all sane.  I recently cropped at the Scrapbook Expo in Pleasanton and it was so much fun!  I spent hours wandering the isles of the show, and seeing so many friendly faces and getting to reconnect with lots of people.  I spent the day with 9 of my bestest friends and the day couldn't have been more fun, we giggled, gossiped and did a little bit of cutting paper and adhering it, but not much.  Its just the fun of getting away, and being with friends thats most important to me.  If we're preserving memories while we're at it, then that's fantastic.  There wasn't alot of great product at the show.  I'm shocked at how old and un-trendy the products are at the EXPO.  I couldn't believe the amount of die cuts, eyelets and just things that we don't normally see on Instagram, or even newer things that came out at CHA.  There were a few booths that had newer things, but darn if I couldn't find one Studio Calico items or even Maggie Holmes.  But money was flying and I even bought things I shouldn't have! It was a lot of fun and I'd go again just to spend time with my friends! Here is a layout I completed that day!  I LOVE Glitz Design!  There recent release has quickly become my favorite and I need to buy more of it.  I usually buy enough to play with a line once and then thats it, but with this line, I want to make more and more with it!


This Sunday is the Stationary Noted class here at my home in Walnut Creek!  We'll be playing with the gorgeous line by Teresa Collins!  Learning how to fold papers into beautiful pages, pockets, flaps and tags, this will be a fun class where you'll learn a lot!  There is space available!  Come join me and some crafty friends this Sunday at 1pm.  HERE is the link to sign up!  If you can't make the class, kits are also available, so just let me know you'd like one!

Saturday, I'm headed to Suzy West's house in Fremont for a Scrappers Garage Sale!  I'm busy purging product which means you get a fantastic deal on all kinds of fun and newer items.  All my items are brand new in package and less than two years old... I love to purge and I'm pricing to sell!  The details can be found on this Facebook page!  I hope to see you there!

Diane (owner of Scrapbook Territory) and I are working out the details for National Scrapbook Day!  I know its going to be the day of May 4th, and its at Scrapbook Territory in Berkeley, and you'll get tons of freebies, a great project, snacks food and fun, and we'll announce all the details very soon!  Keep the date open on your books!

If you didn't join the Basic Grey Page Kit of the Month Program, here are pictures of both the lines that are featured. I love the versatility of each kit!  One is pretty and girly and the other is charming and boyish!  I still have a few slots left, and remember you get a free past months kit when you join!  HERE is the link to join us!
