unscheduled appearance at SALTWATER in Fullerton CA

I will be making an unscheduled stop at Saltwater & Friends 122 N Harbor Blvd Fullerton Ca this Saturday February 3 noon to 4pm, demonstrating for the Carmen's Veranda corner of the store. If you have never been to downtown Fullerton it is a cool shopping area with loads of charm and plenty of great places to eat. S&F has ( besides rubberstamps) antiques, collectables, loads of gift, items, candles, jewelry and lots of seasonal stuff for Easter and Velentines Day.

This past weekend in Riverside was lots of fun, hanging out with Auntie Amy and Jennifer was wonderful. They have a very up to the minute stock of supplies and goodies and that carmel popcorn is KILLER!!!!
We had a nice day of classes and a good show on Friday and Saturday.
My cruise cohort Anne Garcia came by our booth hunting down great stuff for the cruise www.artsdemer.com Plenty of folks already have contributed to doorprize cache!

I hear the weather back home has been as crazy as down here in the desert. 2 ft of snow compared to high winds,rain and flash floods hmmmmm hard to choose!

Hitting the Road


Well my second trip of the year begins this week in Riverside at Auntie Amy's.The year always begins with Grapevine TX and its a runaway train of a time after that! No matter how well it starts I just feel like I am always just catching up, doing what I can to eliminate disaster while running between airports. A driving trip is so much more relaxing so with my kids watching the homestead I hit road. First stop Salem Or to visit my other mother Shirley AKA MA Goose and Hank. Then on down to Fresno to see my buddy Sue and husband Bill (Sue owned Stampacadabra the best stamp store ever in FRESNO) and on down to Joshua Tree to visit the folks! Of Course Tapas is with me and I get to see my other dog Hamish.
