Andrew’s cookies have been retired, sigh. But when I saw this picture he took of some Sea Glass that he found on the Beach in Roberts Creek, well, it just seemed to speak to me! A regular old bottle, tossed into the sea to journey wherever the tides take it, changing with each mile, until it is a completely different object, simple, smooth, beautiful…just like me, tee hee!
This week’s journey took me to Chilliwack, where I stepped in to another store stocked full with cool products! I was very excited to see a rack of Ranger Alcohol Inks, so we’ve scheduled a class on Advanced Techniques for Classic on Alexander, I hope you’ll check it out!
And of course I taught my first 3D paint class in Gibson’s on Saturday at the Family Matters Day Crop, and I must say, Debbie found the perfect little spot for the ladies day of crafting..Right on the BEACH! I hope she does it again, because everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves!
I visited with a few of you at Paper Poet in New West, where the 8 x 11 Bazzill cardstock is the cheapest in town, and they’ve broken up all the hardware and ephemera packages to sell them bulk like we did at Cherish.
The Stencil Demo at Cherry Lane ran over time again as I tried to show EVERYTHING that you can do with stencils, and I’m pleased to say that I received an e-mail from one of the ladies telling me she was re-inspired (Awesome Jacque!!)
But among the fun, I was sorry to see that Paper Nation announced that they were moving on in their own adventure, and I truly wish Bryan the very best of luck in his own future path. I know he will miss all of you, but I’m sure he realizes that he holds a special place in our hearts too.
Please, and I know I’ve said this before, but please support your local shops, both scrapbook and others, we love what we do, and want to keep bringing you the latest and greatest as fast we can, but without your visits, that will get harder and harder. I will do my very best to teach as many cool classes as I can, at as many stores as I have time for, and I look forward to seeing you there.
