What a wonderful weekend…

Feb 27, 2012

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
