So here I am, the end of our holiday. Gads, that went by fast !! There was a fun night of dining at Clayton’s. A fifties diner on Orange Avenue, Coronado Island. This is where time stands still. You can order music from the jukebox right at your booth. Milkshakes are nice and thick and served with a smile.
How would they not be delish, made on this beautiful hued vintage unit?
Then I toodled off to a class at the local Scrapbook Store, Paper Tales, a paper and craft boutique. Breath way out!! Wait for it, now inhale all this fabulousness!
Now….I think, you’re thinking, “what is she thinking?”. LOL. Au contraire silly, silly you! There were a few bit’s and pieces I just could not resist. Yummy tulle in my favourite colours, beautifully hued felts, inks and paper too. Feast your eyes on this loot my friends!
Oh and check out these tiny doomed creations. We made these in a super fun class, designed by Karin Aguirre of Creative Chaos. This one was made by your’s truly 😀
Karin was a complete delight and I had a really great time. If you think these are cute, please do follow the link to Karin’s Blog.
All the gals took home stunning projects. I’m already thinking of new possibilities. Maybe a Valentine one or Easter? I also met up with Russel Ray, another Blogging friend with WordPress. I met Russel and his partner Jim for a little coffee visit just before the class. Incase you’ve always wondered, Russel’s really tall, sounds like Sheldon from the Big Bang and a super nice fellow. Thank you for making time to get together Russel, see you next trip!
I don’t think I’ll ever get enough of the blue sky’s and palm trees.
Oh, just wait a sandy, sunny California minute!
Can you see that?
Is that a banner?
Nah! Couldn’t be!
All of sudden, the message was clear, OmGosh !!!!
It’s true! So, that’s when Boomdee lost it, just a wee bit !
My dear, sweet Alys actually hopped a plane in San Jose at the ninth hour and jetted down to San Diego. Yes WAY!!! Apparently, somewhere between Target and school lunches, a plan was hatched. This happens all the time. NOT! I’ve never seen anyone travel with NO luggage before. After generous hugs and screams, we enjoyed a visit and some wine and planned one lovely day together. Spending my day with Alys was the best Christmas gift I could have imagined. Here’s some of the highlights but honestly, I think I’m still in shock 😀 Crazy, wonderful, joyful shock.
Tis the season to be spontaneous!
One billion hugs Alys, for your gift of friendship, I love you ❤
What’s the most spontaneous thing you ever did?
ps. Apologies for this being so long, I’ve been at the airport for hours due to delays 😀 xoxo Boomdee
