I don't even know where to start describing this past weekend. Myself and eight other scrappers rented a friend's townhouse in Bethany Beach, Delaware. We laughed, we scrapped, we ate, we played, we shopped, we ate some more. The only thing we didn't do was clean up after our families and sleep a full night. This could quickly become a regular event.
We started with a stop at Queen's Ink where I bought this fabulous tool. I miss the store being in Crofton, but I also love that it is larger and at a neat little historic mill that has been made into shops. I bought some little frogs vases at the shabby chic store down the hall... they will hold my art brushes. I also bought some stamps from Hero Arts and some other essentials.
We hit the road to get across the four mile Bay Bridge before darkness descended. White knuckled, but safely across, we stopped at Taco Bell where we met an employee who was just a little too helpful. I dubbed him Vaquero, and we made a note to never stop at that Taco Bell again. (You might want to think again if you decide to stop there. He may still be an employee.) After an exasperating lesson with Delaware road signs, we arrived and unpacked our two tons of food and scrapbook supplies. The other two carloads of friends and supplies arrived a few hours later and we settled in for some fun. Other things of note:
1. Chris knows how to shop for snacks. See pantry picture below.
2. Scrapbook Jenga can be embarrassing and if a video surfaces, I will claim insanity or an evil twin.
3. Nine scrappers decending on a tiny scrapbook store is highly entertaining, but will create a long line. Same thing goes for Starbucks.
4. The new Revolution dies are sharp enough to create a need for band-aids. Lots of them.
5. Neighbors with wireless internet connection are the best kind of neighbor.
6. A lunar eclipse cannot even compete with new patterned paper.
I know I am missing a ton of stuff here, but I must get done with this post before 24 starts! If you ever have a chance to do something like this - you must. For my eight buddies - please do not point out any lopsideness in pictures you may have taken.
ps: I did get stuff done - will probably get those posted later this week.
