Sorry I have been MIA again. We have been dealing with a little problem in our kitchen. Our dishwasher decided to leak under our laminate flooring! OMG! We tore out (or rather my son tore out) our flooridng until we reached “dry” planks. As you can see, there really wasn’t much of our dining area that didn’t get flooded either.
Now for the “piece de resistance” of the trip…
It’s Prima Art Venture! It was my very first time going. I heard from some friends of mine that the Canadian one was good, but the USA one was better. So I thought I would see for myself! And of course my hubby is the best hubby in the world….I told him I really wanted to go, and he made it happen! How awesome is that?
I have created a video for you that walks you through both days of Prima Art Venture. Yep, I will tell you all about what happens when you get there, all about the wonderful classes, all about the wonderful teachers, and lets not forget the new friends you will meet! So sit back and have a look-see…
So there you have it! Oh, and I have since managed to finish the banner from Julie Nutting’s class. I decided to just decorate it on my own, and not try to copy Julie’s.
After New Years in Vegas, our next stop was on to Los Angeles, California!
The first stop on our agenda was to go to Santee Alley. It is a wonderful shopping district in LA! Great place to get cheap merchandise! My son bought a couple of suits along with shirts, ties, belt, socks.
I found myself a few nice things, too. Including this fantastic purse and wallet! Love it!
We then went to Angel Stadium to take in the Monster Energy Moto Cross. It was being shot live for Fox Sports! It was quite cold…the stadium was open-air. But a cup of hot chocolate helped warm me up a bit.
We enjoyed the afternoon so much! Gorgeous day! Several people were playing instruments and singing. It was also fun watching all the birds hover around the people trying to fish.
Now…on to the final portion of the holiday, which was what I was waiting for by the way. Prima Art Venture!
So stay tuned for my next post…
Finally….I’m posting how my trip went to the USA over New Years. We left on Boxing Day, headed to Las Vegas. Yep, we drove all the way from Alberta, Canada! It’s just too expensive to fly 3 of us down there. And besides….then you have to pack all your purchases back with you on the plane. Much easier when you can load up a car!
On the way to Vegas, I got to meet Scrappin Madge! We have know each other for a while now, but just online. We finally got to meet in person! She’s such a great gal! We met across from where they filmed a lot of the original Footloose movie! Actually they filmed most of Footloose in the town of Lehi, Utah. I had no idea! That was one of my favorite childhood movies! Exciting!
When we got to Vegas, we got front row tickets to see the magic and comedy of Adam London! It was really good! He was very funny, and did some magic tricks with cards here and there. It was fantastic! If you get a chance to see one of his shows, definitely do!
I must first apologize for missing last week’s WOYWW…I was still trying to get over some food poisoning. Geesh….not nice at all!
Anyway, what am I working on this week??? Well, absolutely NOTHING! It’s crazy! I went to a retreat this past weekend. I got a few things done that I wanted to, but then my mojo left me. I think Little Miss Mojo is playing hide-and-seek with me. And to be totally honest….I don’t feel like looking for her right now.
So I hate to disappoint, but my desk is just full of things I need to put away (again)!
I’m hoping by the end of the week that Little Miss Mojo decides that hide-and-seek is not fun anymore and shows her little head so I can get some craft on! I feel so blah right now! But….I am determined to finish a video and post that I’ve been working on….hopefully tonight! I have been working on a video of my first experience at Prima Art Venture! I hope to inspire more crafty people to attend. It is a not-to-miss event, so stay tuned for that!
Don’t forget to check out all the rest of the amazing ladies that have desks to show off at Stamping Ground….See you next week!
Hey, it’s that time of the week again! I have a bunch of projects sitting on my desk from Prima Art Venture in Anaheim that I went to in January. I finally finished a few of them! And here they are!
I’m getting ready to take photos of each of them to add to my “Experience at Prima Art Venture” video that I’m working on for my Youtube channel! I love Prima products! And I’m looking forward to going to Prima Art Venture again when it arrives in Edmonton (Canada) in September! Yay!
So that’s my desk…why not check out some more talented/messy desks this week at What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #298 at Stamping Ground!
Well, well, well…another Workdesk Wednesday! I think I’m developing a habit, though. Here’s another picture of stuff on my desk that needs putting away. Geesh!
I spent 5 days at a wonderful country scrapbooking retreat! I just got back on Monday evening. So now I have to put all my scrappy stuff away…again! It seems like it’s never-ending. That canvas is a gift I made for my Great Aunt. She lives near the retreat, but wasn’t home then. I will take it with me to give to her when I go again in June.
It was so fantastic being with those bunch of ladies again (along with some new ladies that hadn’t been before, but are friends of mine)! Here’s a pic of a couple of us who went a day early:
Check back next week to see what is going on…on my desk! Also, please check out all the other ladies that have posted their workdesk pictures at Stamping Ground’s WOYWW #297. There are a lot of creatively messy desks out there! And if you like my posting today….leave me a comment. I would love to hear from you!

Yet more stuff to put away! Sheesh! Some CTMH cardstock–I needed to better cardstock than kraft cardstock for my tree ornaments I’m making for my sorority convention. I have to put away the papercutting heart I made for this month’s Create Craft Share Youtube hop. I bought a box I’m going to alter for an upcoming retreat. Also, a few bits of memorabilia from our Christmas vacation to put away. Well, there you have it! My messy desk for today!
Shopping bags with goodies! Don’t we love those.
Belated WOYWW greetings
