two weeks behind: amy & kelly + easter recap.

A couple of weekends ago, we had the pleasure of hosting our friends, Amy Tan and Kelly Purkey over at Our Paper Place. Amy had fun teaching at the shop late last year, and it was Kelly’s first time visiting, so we hoped for a fun-filled and energetic weekend. Sure enough, it was just that. Everyone that had registered for the workshops seemed incredibly excited to have the girls in town. Creating, wonderful friends, and great weather — I really couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weekend.

Here are some of the photos from our Kelly and Amy workshop event:

I can’t believe that I used to design with both these gals on AC; they’re way too talented for me!

Group photo. I think we might be missing someone in this picture?!

It was so good to see you, Tricia! You know I heart you. 🙂

Amy sharing her very own tricks and tips to scrapbooking!

Kelly letting everyone play with paints, sprays, and stamps.

Thank you again, girls, for coming to hang out! We really enjoyed your company, and it was so nice to see both of you again. Hopefully, we’ll see you two in Chicago.

If you missed these workshops, the shop does have their kits available for purchase. Call the shop for more details, or feel free to contact me directly for more information.

On to Easter Sunday… Easter came and went in a blink of an eye, but that’s not going to stop me from documenting my Easter weekend with a blog post. With my busy schedule, I haven’t been out to the Sacramento area in months, so it was finally time to visit family.

We had an Easter brunch with delicious food cooked up by the best chef in the world, my mom! After dining on Mom’s cooking, it was time for the annual Easter egg hunt. Five kids, two dogs, and a whole bunch of hidden eggs made for one entertaining event. It seems that every year, the egg hunt gets bigger and bigger.

Now, I’d say that aside from Christmas, Maui’s next favorite holiday is Easter. She loves hunting down the hidden eggs because she knows we load treats in there for them. This year, she was Khiara’s sidekick, helping her scope out a handful of eggs.

Hilo, on the other hand, just spent his time looking for food. He’s definitely not into helping the kids look for eggs; he much rather scope out treats for himself. 😉

The kids also had fun decorating a carton of eggs. Unfortunately, I wasn’t around when they colored the eggs, but I still enjoyed looking at their creativity. It’s amazing to watch someone’s creativity shine through in what they make.

One of my favorite parts about our Easter gathering was our adorable deviled eggs. How can you not smile when you see these little chick-a-dees?!

Can you believe this?! That’s more than one post in a week! Something must be wrong, hehe. 😉 Just kidding. Hopefully, I’ll be back very soon with more updates.
