ask and yee shall receive

Well, peeps were asking for more picks from CKU and my trip to Socal, so here they are!

Over 100 ladies participated in our game, "musical scrap" at the Friday night was a total blast! Thanks ladies!
My girls Cheryl Mezzetti (crafter queen) and Crystle from chipboard diva. We had a yummy dinner together one night--the guacamole made tableside was so good that Cheryl nearly proposed to the waiter!
A couple more shots from my new favorite store, Paris to the moon in Costa Mesa. Hi Kerri!

Some killer good treats at a bakery across the street from there. almost too pretty to eat (I said almost)

Tim Holtz "dancing" (please don't kill me Tim--that face is priceless)

Irene on the Swings at California adventure--so much fun!

Bean pretending to be scared (or maybe she really was) at the Monsters ride at California adventure. First she wouldn't go on the tower of terror and then forced me on monsters the ride (as in the kids movie) then Muppets 3-D...I got my revenge when I took her on the roller coaster and she informed me she nearly piddled after the first drop. :)
The cutie DJ eye candy on venice beach.

and finally my Bean from behind leaving Disney...I love my little sister, she's a doll!

Nancy is stalking me.....

well, not really...but she is insistant that I haven't updated my blog nearly enough lately. I'm being harrassed by a lot of people to be a better and more consistant blogger, Nancy's just one of the few people who like to harrass me publically. :) (love ya babe)

Okay, where I've been--what I've been doin. Well let's see--CKU-Anaheim was a couple weeks ago--I loved teaching there and spending time with some great scrappers! It was a blast (as always), and this time I got to see some great friends....Cheryl Mezzetti ("spagetti mezzetti") from Mas. She's "wicked awesome".....I could spend days and days with that girl just listening to her great accent and watching her create--she's pretty darn cool, if I do say so myself.

Cheryl took me and the gals to a grrrrreat store that Mara Johnson introduced her to the day before--it was freakin' awesome. It's called Paris to the Mooon, and if you're ever in the Costa Mesa area you MUST go! It made my eyes happy--it was artsy and hip yet vintage and unique all at the same time. I'd send you to their website, but they do it old school style--they are brick and mortar only, no web no's something that just has to be seen in person.

I got to see my good friend Michelle Van Etten, as she too was teaching at CKU. She rocked out a really cool prima box and the students oooohed and ahhhhed and she's getting rave reviews for her first CKU appearance.

Beth Root is becoming a bit of a CKU groupie, as she's been a student at the last 2 in a row, and I'm quite certain she's attended about 5 or 6. That busy little bee is getting ready to launch a new store....she's always up to something!

I decided I wasn't taking any pictures with Ali this time--because I always end up with an extra 7 chins in the pictures, and she just looks cute, and then I pout. I did get a couple good shots of Tim "dancing" though. And of course some fun student shots too. I'll post those in a future post.

After CKU, I stayed a couple days to visit my lil' sis Irene and my best friend Erik, who both live in SoCal. Erik hooked Irene and I up with free tickets to Disney World and California Adventure, and we spent a really fun evening together. Erik introduced me to the infamous In&Out burger....where we ordered from the "secret menu" and made our bellies happy. (larger, but happy)

Irene, Dana and I spent a day at Venice Beach. Dana had never been there, and wanted to do something fun on her free day, and as Venice Beach is one of my favorite places, we headed the convertible in that direction.

So, I've got lots more pictures to share and loads of good stories....but it's now very late and I'm a tired stay tuned. :)

at Nancy's demand :)

I've been slow to update lately--I've been a busy busy Chelsea. (which I know comes as no surprise)
I finally had my foot surgery last week to reset one of my previously broken toes and to get rid of a bunion (god that makes me feel old) I've been hobbling around on crutches until they gave me bruises under my arms--so I gave them up. Everyone seems to be my doctor lately, saying "shouldn't you be on crutches? why are you walking?"
I leave for CKU on tuesday, and I pretty excited to see everyone in Cali......bring it west coast! After I'm done teaching, I'm spending a couple extra days to hang with my lil' sis Irene and my best friend Erik.........and who knows, I might get another tattoo--they're like potato chips, I just can't stop! speaking of my sister, here's a recent page I did of her. :)
wanna see a darn cute kid? my niece Ella..............
tell me she's not adorable------you can't can ya?
