Destination: Craft Crossing, Gonzales, Tx

I am back from a wonderful trip to Gonzales, Tx. Wanda and Kathy and I headed north on Friday morning to Belmont where we met up with Connie. The party never stopped until we arrived back in Harlingen late Sunday afternoon...All I can say is we went, we conquered and I don't think Craft Crossing or Gonzales will ever be the same!!! haha.... We had a ball. Thank you Pam, Connie, and Penci!!

Now I must tell you all about our day at Craft Crossing. It began at 9 a.m. and i think we left at midnight, hahaha....yes that is 15 hours of shopping in heaven and crafting and yes, we probably have a problem, but who cares and who asked you anyway!!!haha...

We took classes from all 3 ladies (and I use that term loosely if ya know what i mean ;), haha.

Pam did the first one and it was the cutest ornament that we sodered...i have ALWAYS wanted to play with the sodering tool and i love my project but there was just one problem..The smell in the room-- we did find out was not electrical. Imagine to my surprise when I found that I had not only perfected the art of melting that soder, I had also learned how to burn a perfect hole in a perfectly good table...yes I said the table, hahaha...that was NOT part of the class. Pam then smiled nicely and said maybe i shouldn't play with fire,....what???? Pam said to make yourself at home... haha...

ok, class 2....Connie had 3, yes that is 3 projects for us. I did the neatest dry erase frame, a layout , and we had to take # 3 home with us which i've not done yet but will....

and then there was Miss Penci aka T!m's groupie!!! haha...she loves everything T!m....Holtz that is...We made 4 of the neatest tags...and it was during this class that things started to get just a little bit UGLY with the local husseys, umm I mean our new friends from the community...by this time, they had figured out that all the goodies they had been wanting to purchase were no longer for sale--they were in our bags, WOOHOOO, GITTY UP!!!

SO, as the class proceeded and Miss Penci showed one thing after another that we felt we MUST have, there were 2 gals (our new friends) across the table (I beleive Teri was the name of the leader over there)who would get up and literally run towards the display. Now ordinarily I wouldn't care, but they wanted it ALL and they didn't seem to care that we might not get any?????? All in all it turned out very very well....

I seem to have misplaced my cord to the camera so will load the pics tonight..if any of you gals are from anywhere in Tx or plan to vist, you would do yourself a favor to head to Gonzales for a visit to Craft Crossing. Pam has absolutely the best store in Tx...Did I mention we had drawings throughout the day as well as goodies Miss Pam handed to us as well...and then there was the 40% off one item as well and her usual 20 % off for all you purchased if you took classes that day...oh my gosh.....heaven i tell ya!!!! Now Pam if the 20 % off is not your usual, well, I just told 10,000 of my closest friend, hahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I am off and running to work, but please check back tonight, to see the goodies I made while I was gone...

Blessings, Sandi

P.S. to my new friend Terri in Gonzales...I do need to say it is not very becoming for a pregnant woman to literally sprint across the table and get our projects wrapped around your ankle to drag through Pam's store as you trying to bag it all for yourself, hahahahahaha.....THE END!!!!!

You are too funny! Although, it really all happened that way! I had a blast with you girls and am so glad I have some new friends. Tim would be so proud of us all! Thinking of doing a Configurations Class in Feb. The Jan. class will probably be Valentine themed. Hope to see ya'll soon.
