What a wonderful weekend…
Friday night was so much fun. I still cannot believe I was sitting at the table signing two books I created and wrote. Crazy I tell ya. Just goes to show , if you just keep working and moving forward, as the days add up it is amazing where you will end. Carolyn’s store, The Crafty Scrapper is such a happy place. Her employees are all so wonderful, her endless supply of amazing product is mind blowing and well Carolyn is pretty wonderful herself. Her son Denton is such a sweetheart. He gave me flowers that were sprayed with a light dusting of glitter. How sweet was that! He can do no wrong in my eyes. I love that little boy something fierce.
Caroline even drove down to be there which was really appreciated. She has a ton on her plate right now so every minute she has is precious. I never knew such a wonderful friendship would happen when I tried out for the Maya Road design team back in 2007. She has been the most amazing mentor I could have ever hoped to have.
And a night at The Crafty Scrapper would not be complete without Carolyn’s husband Nolan. He comes and gets everyone all stirred up then goes home. He is such a fun guy to be around. And if you get to spend the night at their house on a Saturday night, Sunday morning you wake up to his most amazing breakfast… homemade biscuits cooked in an iron skillet, eggs, bacon etc. It is one heck of a good spread.
Saturday morning, I taught the Vintage Sampler class. Of course I thought to take a photo near the end of class so I did not get everyone. Total bummer. I end up getting so wrapped up in teaching the class I forget to take photos. It was so fun seeing everyone complete their project. I really do try so hard to make sure everyone completes theirs, as the thought of it sitting in a closet unfinished makes me so sad. I just can’t handle that thought.
Before my class started Trisha the awesome soldering teacher at The Crafty Scrapper gave me this charm. I LOVE it. It reminds me of the vintage pin my mom has that was my grandmothers. It has “Mother” on it that was done in wire as Trisha did here. Trisha is teaching a class at The Crafty Scrapper showing you how to make this so if you want to know call the store and sign up 972. 923. 3151.
So that was my weekend. I hope yours was as wonderful as mine. I truly am blessed to have such amazing friends. Now it is back to reality as I need to start cleaning up 8 weeks of insane creating. The damage I can do to a room is so sad. Just look at this place. Terrible I tell ya, just terrible. But it is my reality right now. LOL
