Hello, I'm here

Okay, another week has gone by. Although, it has been quick, it seemed to drag while I was working. Anyway, I'm working at two schools now, but I did a one day sub at another school so maybe that's why the week seemed long even though Monday was a holiday!

Well, the Scrapbook Expo last week was pretty hectic. I didn't shop very much, but there were others that were anxious to spend their money. I barely could look around in many of the booths and I never thought to take pictures, it was way too overwhelming for me. Scrapbooking is definately one of the hot crafts in the US! I wasn't interested in buying more stuff, I have enough that I would like to get rid of for pity sakes!. The "digiscrap" class was pretty good, I'm sorry I didn't sign up for the following class, it looked like something that I could benefit from as well. I did purchase the book called "Digital & Hybrid Scrapbooking", now all I need is to Photoshop Elements that will help me organize my photos and then I can easily make pages.

This is an example of the teacher's pages, very cool looking in person.

Although, I did find out some good info and the instructor teaches at locations nearby, so I'll be able to learn more.

Here are some pics from our weekend in San Diego (oh, I feel like a tourist now)

We decided to walk around and have lunch at one of the restaurants and then on to Horton Plaza. Which walking a few blocks was killing me, it was so hot and humid and all I wanted to do was go home.

Angela wanted Pinkberry, so we stopped for a minute and headed back to the convention center. I was done after the walk back and definately ready to go home.

She wouldn't let me take a picture of her. I don't think she would be thrilled with this photo and then posting it here.

All in all it was a fun day, I just wished the weather had cooperated because it was uncomfortable. It even sprinkled a little bit, very strange weather.

I did manage to do a little sewing this past week, my cousin wanted me to make some bibs for our craft booth, which by the way I'm pretty sure we'll be at the Sunday market next week. I didn't have a pattern, so I traced one of her bibs she was selling and made my own pattern. She asked me last year and I finally got around to it! I was surprised how easy and cute, so I will be making more.

I used a plaid flannel on the back.

I also finished a couple of totebags, but I'll share photos later. This post is already longer than it needs to be. I'm still wanting a new sewing machine, so I have some projects on the back burner. Also some unfinished ones that I would like to get to. Not to mention my sewing space needs some organization, I have new shelves to put up, but I want to paint first. Then I better get off the computer!

Thanks for taking time to read and getting this far. Have a great weekend!
