After a day in San Jose, I hopped on a couple more planes and headed back down to southern California to teach classes at Paper Tales there.
I love staying at Michelle's house and seeing all her family again - I love the sunshine and wearing flip flops and all! We did our usual trip to the mall and lunch at Nordstrom before heading to the her store and getting set up for all the students coming to class for the weekend.
You know I love Paper Tales - it is just the right mix of scrapbook products, stamps, vintage doo dads, and interesting things that Michelle finds in her travels and then brings into the store.
It was so good to see everyone - I've taught there so many times that it seems like a reunion, but I also love meeting the new people who venture to class for the first time! Hopefully they'll be "hooked" and be back next time!
I hope they know how much I treasure them!
Michelle and I are working on a date for July so watch my schedule on the sidebar to see when it will be!
We had a great dinner after class at the hip Harbor Town Pub with Julie...
and then on Sunday morning before my flight home we got to have an oceanfront breakfast in Ocean Beach...
I just love the view of the ocean when you come over the hill in Point Loma...
So different from Buffalo!!
After a ten day trip I was ready to get home but sad to leave the sunshine! I had one more adventure left before I'd be home... more on that soon!
If you're dreaming of someplace warm, time is running out to sign up and join me for a weekend of thrift shopping in Florida at the end of January. You can read about it and sign up HERE. I bought my plane ticket recently and it was only $215 round trip from Buffalo to Sarasota on US Airways!
If you're dreaming of someplace dreamy and magical, how about joining me in Paris for a week at the end of April. You can read about that trip and the openings that I have HERE. April in Paris? Oui, s’il vous plaît!
Hope your day is full of blessings! Thanks for stopping by!
