My Stampin' sisters come from the Central Valley of California, cities like Merced, Turlock, Modesto, and Ceres. We met, and carpooled up to Stockton where we stopped for lunch at El Torritos.
It was such a pleasant drive and lunch, talking about projects and ideas and all the crafty talk that I just cant talk with people who are not as into it as I am!! My goodness, one of those feelings of enjoyment and understanding that you just didn't know what you were missing until you found it?! The whole day was like this. Such a great day!!
After lunch we got back into the car for the final leg of the trip, but not without a little sweet treat from my Up-Upline, Kim Molesworth! Delicious cookies!
We had no trouble driving, despite the massive road construction on the I-5, and arrived at the theater with time to spare! So we wandered and got coffee and shopped a little before it was time to head over fo some of the organized swaps and to get in line.
|Beautiful roses all over the shopping center here.|
The organized swaps seemed very organized, LOL! I really wish I had been able to fit time in to make swaps, but it just wasn't happening with my schedule the last two weeks! Luckily, my group allowed me to take pictures, so I'll share those with you in a later post!
