Gettin' Crafty in Columbia!

A couple weeks ago I was itchin' to have some crafty time to myself. I mentioned this on Twitter, and @corgidusty, aka Donna, piped up and mentioned she was going to a stamp show that weekend & I should join her. She's in Columbia, South Carolina, which it turns out is a pretty easy drive from Atlanta. So I convinced the hubs and off I went! Here are some photos from the weekend, not the best quality ever since they were taken with my phone, but you get the idea. :-)

My Saturday was off to a fabulous start as I drove into this gorgeous sunrise.

See this girl? Doesn't she look happy & relaxed to have some alone time?

Donna met me at the StampScrapArtTour show and we were off to shop!

The highlight of the show was the Stampers Anonymous booth. Sigh. Oh my word, so much Tim Holtz & Ranger goodness gathered in one place. Pace yourself, Libby!

I wanted to hide this entire display in my bag...

Another highlight? Meeting the one & only Ted of Stamper's Anonymous!! I am now only two levels of Kevin Bacon away from Tim Holtz! I'm not sure that made sense, but maybe you know what I mean. (Has Tim ever met Kevin? Hmm, I wonder.) The other lovely face in the photo is Donna.

Ok a slight detour from stampy goodness to show you my lunch because oh my word it was so good it was nearly a religious experience! I've been eating mostly vegan lately and big thanks to Donna I got to get lunch from a vegan/raw cafe. The "meat" on these tacos was some walnut concoction. And the sour cream was made out of cashews. And it tasted JUST like sour cream. I have no idea how they did that. It was CRAZY good. I may have to drive back to Columbia just to eat this again!!

Ok back to the crafty stuff. After the stamp show Donna & I stopped by her house to let her dogs out and grab some supplies. I got to see her WONDERFUL stamp room! Very nice.

And then we went to her LSS, The Stamping Place & Scrapbook Station, for a Mardi Gras-themed crop night! The ladies at this store were so much fun! They went all out with Mardi Gras decorations, masks, food - what fun! Here's the party cart complete with a delicious punch and king's cake!

Me in my mask.

The entire crop crew.

I spent the evening coloring a Birthday Princess from MFT.

Actually, I colored a whole bunch of Birthday Princesses! I'll share the finished cards tomorrow. :-)

I had so much fun hanging out and stamping on Saturday night, I stayed for the Sunday afternoon crop as well before heading back to reality, aka Atlanta. Huge thanks to Donna for being such a sweet host, it was great to meet you IRL!
