This new year of traveling and teaching began with a super fun weekend at Paper Tales in San Diego. It was great to see so many old friends and have lots of new students - and make new friends, too!
It's always awesome to see blue skies and sunshine when you leave Buffalo in the winter and touch down in California!
As always, Michelle had darling favors and delicious baked treats for each of us! The pom-pom (they have the cool tool to make these so easily at the store) is super cute dangling from the Christmas album we made!
Our prize for traveling the furthest for class went to Karine from France and Florence, who is from France but lives in Houston now. It was so much fun to see them here!
I'm always thankful for the photos that we remember to get - and it's always at the end, when I look like I need a nap! :) Friends from San Diego and Palm Springs and the Los Angeles area and even from Montana and North Dakota! Sheyenne and Sherri flew in and escaped the subzero temps they have there.
I know I say it every time, but I am so, so grateful to every person who takes a class or buys a kit and shares their friendship with me. I am very blessed by you all! A huge thank you to Michelle and her staff for a great weekend! Can't wait to see you all again in the summer.
