Warm Thoughts, Honey

…long post ahead… Where have I been? ScrapFest! I made it home early in the week from a few fabulous days in Minneapolis. I had the opportunity to visit with many of my papercrafting friends from around the country, as well as family friends. It was a super busy, long working hours, incredibly good trip. I made it home just in time to work on the annual PTO fundraiser where I worked with a team that ‘nickeled and dimed’ our way to counting over $50,000 one crumpled bill at a time. Now, I’m finishing up the work week and looking forward to rodeo action right here in town, all weekend long. Good times.

For Taylor’s Sketch today, I have a sweet Whiff of Joy image that was begging to be made into a card. She’s been sitting on my desk for a month or two. How sad is that? She’s colored with Copic Markers (color below) and accented with Cosmo Cricket paper. I knew I didn’t want to bring my sentiment over the pot of honey, so I stopped it short and then balanced out the weight on the right side with a few buttons. I do love how this came out. The little tea pot charm at the bottom is from Whiff of Joy, as well.

You can see other fabulous ideas for this fun sketch by visiting:

Here’s what I’ve been up to in the last few days:

Debbie and I - Eden Prairie Certification

I adore this girl. She’s so talented…so ultra-uber talented. Debbie and I taught a Copic Certification in Eden Prairie before ScrapFest last week. It went super smooth. We also roomed together for ScrapFest and did some major shoe shopping at the mall. For our husbands, I’m sorry.

One of our Our Craft Lounge classes at Mall of America

Debbie Olson and I taught 2 full classes of Copic and Our Craft Lounge fans Friday – Sunday at Mall of America for ScrapFest. That was weird, but totally fun to be right out in the middle of the mall with a microphone talking about Copic color selection. LOL!

HB and Pine

Carol Halverson and Heather Nichols were frequent visitors to our demo and class venues this past weekend. It was great to spend time with them. Such sweet girls.

Kimberly McCausland and Joy Kennedy

Two-thirds of the Our Craft Lounge Cuties – This is Kimberly and Joy. So sweet. So fun. I can’t wait to hang out and color with them again. Missed you Cams! :(

Sweet Lori McAree

If you’ve never met Lori McAree – She is always smiling like this. I mean ALWAYS. So helpful, fun, talented, sweet. Love that she was able to spend both Thursday at a Copic Certification and Friday at Mall of America with us last week. Love you, girl!

Tommy from Unity Stamp Company

I love the Unity Crew, and I got to see most of them this trip without my camera. I ran into Tommy the most: make & takes (he rocks those), Chipolte, running from one thing to the next. He was always around. Great guy!

So with that, I’m off for the weekend. Hoping to catch up on a few things around the house and get rested a bit.

Have a fabulous weekend!
