Last Friday I flew to Dallas, Texas, for a weekend of classes at The Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie. After I landed and picked up my rental car, I met up with Emily Adams, my pal from the old CKU days, for some amazing Texas BBQ. We have so many fun memories together from CKUs across the country. It was so nice to see her again! It was a balmy 80 degrees which felt great since it was -5 when I left Buffalo in the morning.
Saturday morning was my first class of the weekend - as always, I LOVE returning to a store again and seeing so many friends, but this time there were so many of new people too. I love that! We had a busy day of creating and playing, and they all went home with just a few little finishing touches to put on their albums. I've loved seeing pictures of their books on Facebook already!
During the night Sunday night, the temperatures dropped over 50 degrees to the teens and with the rain/sleet that started to fall, it quickly became a mess and the roads were a nightmare of ice! Some brave souls came to class Sunday morning but they didn't dare stay for the afternoon class, and those that were going to come Sunday afternoon weren't able to get out, so we had to cancel that class. At least everyone will have their kits with directions and all!
The Crafty Scrapper really is one of the premier stores in the country - I don't think there is anything they don't carry (or will get for you!) We had such a great weekend that we already set a date for me to come back and teach my Christmas album and the #bigideas #smallbooks album that everyone loved (I brought the sample for them to take a peek at.) I'll be back December 5th and 6th!
A big thanks to Carolyn for her incredible hospitality and to Anita who came to help out and even got to take a class too. It was great to see her! (Only my hair doesn't like Texas! :)
This is only HALF the store!!
On Monday morning everything was still frozen over but I made it safely to the airport and home. Thanks all you Texas girls for making this Yankee feel so at home! Love Y'all!
