Adventures in California

Hello from not so sunny California!

We are here...a little tired....but having a great time!

We are sorry we are behind in blogging but it has been go, go, go here and not a lot of time spent in the hotel room! Our first morning here we were woken up by a little earthquake so that got us off to a bit of a shaky start....pun intended!  It was a nice treat to have so many friends from home this year join us in California (a lot of the gals were here for Art Venture).

We had a fabulous two days with Prima at Art Venture.  We made some beautiful projects but need to finish a couple of them before we can take photos and share them with you.   We are worrying just a little bit about how to get all the goodies back home as 50 pounds adds up fast in a suitcase!  We are also worried that the hotel cleaning staff may think we are shopaholics ;)

CHA has been very busy - we took some great classes on Friday, spent yesterday window shopping, but got down to some serious business today!  Some of our favourites so far have been
  • The new releases for the Minc Machine that will take it to a whole new level...including some Mixed Media possibilities (Cori-Lyn got a little excited over this!)
  • super cute new shaker cards, dies and stamps from Jillibean Soup
  • Simple Stories planner goodies
  • All things Tim (yep...ALL)
  •  Graphic 45 releases 
  • Lawn Fawn new releases (SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cute)
  • a new stamp company that we are really excited about
Tomorrow we have American Crafts on the agenda - that is a whole lot of stuff to look at so we are going to take our time :)

We were really lucky to get to meet up with some of our scrappy friends down here - including Frank Garcia and Jim Hankins.  We have made some plans for their upcoming classes and we are really excited to open that up once we get back!

Be sure to check out some of our photos on our Flickr Album - we haven't had a chance yet to label the photos but knew you would love looking at them anyway!  Leave us a note and let us know what you love - we have a ton of stuff to bring back with us and you just might win a little something something!!!
