This is how we have been starting our mornings around 6am here. A momma Turkey and her 13 babies, come by to pick up all the seeds that drop from the bird feeder each morning. Now Rocky and Tula (our furbabies) are obsessed with these little kids and run through our entire house wanting to get outside to "play" with them. They are so cute, talking away to each other and to momma. I swear I live in a zoo.. but I wouldn't have it any other day.
Wow did we have a great time on Sunday making the Twilight Altered Book. We had the movie playing in the background, paper flying everywhere from our niches, and we even made our vial of "blood" for the inside niche. All the ladies were so inspirational with their own creativity and excitement. We worked 4 long hours, and we could have stayed all night to keep going! These days with all the ladies here are so much fun, it makes my heart so happy to see smiling happy people getting their hands dirty and creating art.
I can't thank everyone enough for all the fun and a few new friends were made as well. I'll be teaching this again on Saturday at Scrapbook Territory so if you missed it, give them a call to sign up!
Also, keep these dates on your calendar.. I am becoming very busy this summer, but August 15th, I'll be at the Berry Patch Farmers Market in a booth in Pleasanton and:
AUGUST 23rd will be The Art Life Scrapbook and Vintage Finds Garage Sale. My entire house will be filled with tables of discounted Scrapbook Supplies and Vintage Finds. I have already started making kits of items to be sold. This will be one not to be missed. I plan on clearing out my stash for the holiday season. We'll start at 9am and go till 5pm here at my house.
If you haven't already heard the news, Picture Me Perfect in Fremont is closing its doors in August. Suzy West has been in business for 13 years and is going to close the doors to her shop to be with her family and bake cookies for her kids after school. Its a sad day for us scrapbookers but happy and inspirational on a friendship level. I'll be at the store this Sunday July 19th for the Garage Sale with things for sale and just hanging out with friends. Come on by for some great deals and to visit. She is having HUGE sales right now!
