Friday & Saturday Happenings

So today started out with a drive to Arcadia to teach a class for "The Day Job" . . .
Once I was back in my neighborhood earlier this evening, I got a text from Lezlei (sil/bff/transplant from CA to TX) reminding me of the April 9th Tuesday Morning nationwide store sale.  


I had first learned about this sale on the Tim Holtz Yahoo Group I belong to, but I didn't put the date in my calendar, so I am soooo glad that Lezlei reminded me! . . .  . . .
Oooooooh, DOUBLE packs of Tim Holtz Idealogy Grungeboard for $7.99!  Oh yeah . . . I picked up Basics Dots, Basics Swirls, (2) Stripes Elements, Shapes Swirls, and Stripes Digits & Punctuation . . .
I picked up a couple of the Tim Holtz embossing powder tins for 7.99 each and there was even a little random mini tin on a shelf for 1.99 that I picked up . . .
Thanks for the reminder Lezlei!


When I got home from Tuesday Morning, this was at my front door . . .
Remember the Amy Hanna book I won over on Jenny Doh's blog?  Yep, well it arrived today :).  Here are a couple of pages inside the book . . .
Ooooooh I can hardly wait to sink my teeth into THIS book!  


Tomorrow I'm getting up early to go to a garage sale in Nancy Jamar's (owner of Gilding the Lily) neighborhood in Fullerton.  Hoping to find some good vintage ephemera there!


Saturday evening I will be celebrating my friend, Linda Bucci's birthday at her home along with her husband - Bob and friend - Martha.  
Whatever YOU do this weekend, make it art-filled and fun!

Hey Sherry - Sorry to be so absent from your entertaining blog these days, I always think your music choices are swell --- it's good, and I'm thankful to keep us in hearth and home, but working 7 days a week away from the studio has truly taken a toll on my time spent with you and my other online art chicas...
Miss ya!

Great haul, Sherry! My Tuesday Morning is like a no-craft zone, LOL. They had almost nothing but some picked over scrapbooking kits. Guess it's hit or miss with that kind of store.
Enjoy your finds!

We have a little hidden Tuesday Morning near my house. It is cool because it feels like a little secret treasure box. When you need that little special sumthin, sumthin! WOW, you sure did score. :) xoxo

Lucky you - no sales like that in my little town, actually no stores like this in my little town. :(

The book looks fabulous!!! Again, lucky you! *grin*

Hope you found some goodies at the garage sale.

Hi Sherry -

WOW! That's some great stash you got there! I'm going to try the Tuesday Morning that's about 40 minutes from me. I've been there a few times and they really have not had anything, but maybe this time I'll get lucky!
