Scrapbooking trip!

I was able to get away for a couple days, we had a scrapbook trip planned from November and I decided I needed the break. I flew into OC and Mary picked me up, we headed to the Red Lion Inn near the Anaheim convention center, checked in and hooked up with Christy, from there we walked to dinner at the Cheesecake factory, the ahi salad there is to die for!!
Walked back to the hotel and went to bed early. Friday found us up and in line for scrapbook expo all day crop! Marlene found us and we began the day of cropping and shopping! Mary F had to work so she was not able to join us this year.

Friday night we walked from the convention center to Pf changs where we met up with Jeff, Travis and Rebecca for a great dinner! Back to the hotel where we all watched the dvd I made for Travis and Christy of my mom, wish I could play it here but music copyrights won't allow it!

Saturday up early to crop all day again....Sunday I flew home. I just love the expo's and wish I could go to San Diego but I have to get my cruise paid for so I will have to skip that expo this year!

I liked the fact that we walked a lot, the crop is 1/2 mile from hotel, the restaurants are 1 mile from the crop and 1/2 mile from hotel, so we logged about 5 miles for 2 days!

The Winey Scrappers!

The crop room it was packed this year!

Craft show...

I made a little bit at the craft show, I think the location was not good at all.
Even though it was at a hotel/casino we were in the back at the arena so we did not get any tourist traffic, and I don't think advertising was good enough. But it was a fun time and I learned a few things!
I enjoy hanging out and talking to other artists even if we do not make any money!
I would like to thank Tanya for sharing this show with me!
Hope to do a few more little craft shows with her again!
I will fill my etsy store with new items, hopefully before I leave for my scrapbooking trip!
Me and my goods!

My Mom...

My favorite memories of my mom are at the family reunions we use to have, she would pull out her guitar and play and sing, and I was mesmerized, wow, that is my mom singing like that, I always thought to myself..pretty cool.

Music was always a big part of growing up in my house, it was always on, well, when "I Love Lucy" was not on or "The Andy Griffith" show....her favorites!

I remember the weekends were chore days and she would turn on the oldies and we would clean the house, singing and dancing all along the way. That was in my early teens when just me and my mom were left in the house, we had fun, she introduced me to Austin City Limits show, and my first opera, Rigoletto, it made me cry. Beautiful music.
So I say Goodbye for now but she is somewhere playing her music and finally having some fun!

Rest in Peace mom, I love you and will miss you, your baby daughter, Jackie

Happy Heart Day!

I thought I would choose this pic as my valentine to you, winter has been avoiding us and the days have been up in the 70's with lots of sunshine. Yesterday we finally got some rain and today looks raining too!
I am making cupcakes to take to work. Hope everyone's day is filled with love! I am making spaghetti for my hubby for dinner so he will be happy!
