Last Weekend

Well I had a great time last weekend. Friday started out with the Scrapbook Expo right in Sacramento, just over the river from where I live. I showed a great deal of restraint and hardly bought anything. But I DID get a new paper trimmer - It's from Crafter's Companion and it's called Clevercut and it does perforating, wavy cut, straight cut and scoring...and you don't have to swap out a blade!! You just flip a little switch. All the blades are in the housing unit and it's made of German steel. It also has a built in corner rounder, and all the lines and markings, including protractor lines. You can check it out here:
I paid $45 for mine, but Overstockdotcom has it for $38.49, and I think shipping is currently only $1!!

Onto Saturday....On Saturday I went to Elk Grove to take a workshop from Tim Holtz called "Seasonal Memoirs". As always, it was a great day! He is an amazing instructor and SO very patient. On Sunday I took another workshop from Tim again called "Configurations of you holiday imagination". Another great class!! I haven't taken pictures of my project with my camera yet, but I did take general pictures during class with my camera. Here is one of my favorites of Tim:

When I take pictures of the projects I made I will be sure to put them on here.

Today was a sad day as I had a funeral to attend of a friend's mom...but the mom and I actually became very good friends over the last 25 years and I was closer to her than my friend. Rest in peace, dear Twyla.

Today is also my dear father's birthday, as well as son Kyle's birthday. Happy birthday to 2 of my favorite guys!

Now I'm off to go to wine-tasting with my son and then take him to dinner!

TaTa for now!!
