Stamping at Archiver's

I hope you had a great weekend!  We sure did.  It was a great mix of family, friends, relaxing and crafting!

One highlight of my weekend was Saturday night.  Vicki and I went to Archiver's (if you're not familiar with it, it's a fabulous scrapbooking and stamping store) for a crop.  They have a back room and for 10 bucks you get to hang out in there all night and craft away!

I don't know where I spent more time… in the room or out in the store gawking at all the awesome-ness!

This was the perfect time to practice my new Copic Marker skills.  Check out this cutie little girl and rock star boy.  Yes..I cut them out!  I know!  SO NOT ME!  But they are so stinkin' cute, kinda like paper dolls.  I'll share when I get them put on cards.

The room was open until 11, so Vicki and I made a Starbucks run around 9.  We aren't spring chickens anymore and sometimes need a bit of help, lol!

Surprisingly, I saw some friends there!  Here is one of my long time friends and customers who I don't get to see nearly enough, Theresa!

Vicki!  When are we doing this again!!??  It really was so much fun!

Back to work today.  The littles have their last four days of school this week, so I've got lots of videos to film and crafts to make before they change my daily routine!

    Are you kidding me? You colored those?! Seriously, we need a close up! Glad you had fun!

    That place sounds so cool. Wish we had one in Maryland!

    So love the coloring you did, Catherine! Job well done – with cutting out to boot! The Copic Marker case looks like it came in handy. I am so JELLOS of the fun you had! Wish we had stuff like that in my town! ;D

    Hi there Catherine
    I live in Canada just outside of Toronto but my son and his wife live in Durham N.C., so when we drive down to visit, my first question is, “when can we go to Archivers”. So I know how awesome that store is. I follow your blog regularly and I love everything you make. Keep up the good work. I think that soon I will treat myself and join y our Stamp Nation.
    Sincerely, Evelyn

    It was fun and YES, you will be seeing those little guys on cards soon.

    Evelyn, yep! You definitely need to make a trip to Archiver’s! It’s a FABULOUS place! We look forward to seeing you at StampNation :)
