Class crashers and a new friend

You've all heard of party crashers, right? Well, this weekend, some friends and I became "class crashers"! Teri had her third 50 Tags Class on Saturday and I found out that our two friends Claudette and Joy D. were her students. Well, I also found out that Jenny from Hilo was gonna be in town. So, I asked Janis if she wanted to stop by Teri's house to hang out with the gang. Well, what I should've done was ask Teri FIRST if we could stop by and hang out ... but I didn't. SORRY TERI! OMG - I'm so rude! Please forgive me!

Anyway, Teri being the sweet gal that she is, said of course we could come and she even said we could all come early to just hang out and talk story. Luckily, Jenny was able to join us too, so we were able to finally meet in person! We ate, talked, laughed, shared crafting tips, ate some more ... you get the idea. It was great fun to be able to get together and bond with other women who have the same interests as you ... even the same "male" problems as you! LOL!

These are the RAKs I received: from Claudette and Joy:

From Jenny (on the left) and the surprise project that Teri planned for us!

These are the 3x3 cards I made for the gals:

Here they are all nicely packaged:

Thanks for letting us crash your class Teri, it was so much fun! I promise I won't do it again! It was great meeting you, Jenny! I don't wanna eat my BIC goodies! Let me know the next time you're in town, k? To Claudette, Joy, and Janis - it's always so much fun to hang out with you crazy gals! BTW, Joy, thanks for the special price! I going be greedy ...

Thanks for visiting and I'll be posting yet another huge RAK I received from a friend I finally got to meet in person on Sunday. Take care and be safe! Aloha ...

Finally ... my mojo is slowly returning

See? I did actually create! Simple stuff, but I still created! I made this card for Cami's birthday, which was on September 7th. Hope you had a blast on your special day girlfriend! This was the first time I used this particular TGF stamp and their paper. Love it!

This is Janis's make 'n take tablet! Janis was so funny ... she brought all the notebooks for us, a load of assorted DP, cardstock, and ribbon, and told us to chose whatever paper & ribbon we wanted. She wrote down the instructions for all of us (she said sorry, she didn't type it out LOL!) and we went for it! I didn't have to, but I added the ovals, the stamped image and the flowers to the front of my tablet just because I wanted to be sassy! I'm very happy with the way my tablet turned out!
One day last week, my BFF and I decided to try and make an image/GC holder we saw on Joy's blog, A Place To Be Me. Teri received one of these cards from a friend and Joy and Teri figured out how to make it! These two gals are so talented it scares me sometimes! Anyhoo, Joy shared the instructions on her blog, which I followed, and I made this sample for Kyoko:

I'm pretty happy with the way this one turned out too! I hope she likes it!
Hey, you guys, thanks for stopping by and always leaving me such awesome comments! Getting feedback and meeting such talented and generous ladies like you all has made me realize that starting this blog was the right thing to do, at this time in my life. So, until next time, take care of yourselves, be safe, be kind to others and be happy! Aloha ...
