I thought it would be cute to come up with 27 reasons to visit my on the 27th...but let's face it, I'm a bit brain dead with the end of Shop Hop. So let's focus on the main reasons to come visit on the 27th.
1) Its my mom's birthday & she'll be in town - come wish her a happy day.
2) FREE Starbucks - anytime between 4-7pm, stop by and get a free Sorbetto or Vivano. This isn't a sample size...its the real thing baby!
3) Turn in your Shop Hop Passport - deadline is the 27th.
4) & finally, not to be outdown by Starbucks...FREE sheet of paper ($1.00 value or less). Stop by between 4-7pm on the 27th and pick out your favorite!
Hope to see you then...Sonja

Basic Grey Sultry Clipboard
Honestly, I can't get enough of this collection. I found an old wooden clipboard and modge podged it with the basic grey paper. I was even able to modge podge some of the chipboard shapes. The modge podge is a strong adhesive and a protective glaze; not exactly archival quality but perfect for a project like this. I finished if off with some of the coordinating fibers.
Just Dreamy Clock
The shop has needed a clock so I made one. The clock pieces were a kit that I had from somewhere...but we have similar ones in the Kaisercraft lounge. I covered it with paper from My Mind's Eye Just Dreamy collection. I used an assortment of Jumbo Paper Brads from Bazzill to finish the clock face. Of course, I got this bright idea after all the paper was glued down, so the brads are Glue Dotted to the paper. Also used Color Box Chalk Ink to add color and definition to the edges.

And if you were in this weekend you probably saw my mom and my friend Emily slaving away at my usual spot on the computer, trying to figure out Quickbooks for me and getting me caught up. This is not the "paper" that I deal with...so I'm ever so greatful for their help! And my sister was down for a quick visit and got to see the shop for the FIRST time, and craft a bit as well.
Also, some sad news to report....this summer has been very hard for the industry and 4 local stores are closing their doors: The Loft in Menifee, Paper Pansies in Garden Grove, Screamin's Susies in Whittier, and Sweet Peas and Snapshots in Los Angeles (online store to open soon.)
Thank you for all of your support as we enter month 5!!!
