Yikes! It's Wednesday. Again.

I seriously need to get a grip on my to do list. And start checking things off it. Here are some things going on in my life.

1. Craft Beach Retreat. Totally excited, and a bit scared. Rachel asked me to teach a class for her retreat, and I'm a little nervous. I was checking the event blog today, and the photos are amazing. I'm in love with the location, hotel, and hello, Urth is catering? Love their bobas. I hope they are bringing bobas. If you watch Entourage, then you know the characters are at Urth all the time. I never see anyone famous when I'm there. But I digress...

2. Me and mine went to visit the La Brea Tar Pits this past weekend. Uhm... Can't say that I needed to see that. Big pools of tar. Gurgling. Uhm... That said, I'm still taking everyone who comes to visit me there. You've been forewarned. And you know who you are.
Don't worry. That is just a re-enactment using a highly trained stunt mastodon.
3. We also went to The Counter for burgers. Uhm... Not the best. But not the worst. On a burger scale, it's better than 5 Guys, less than In-N-Out. But way more expensive than both. However, their sweet potato fries and onion strings were some of the best I've ever had though. So I'd definitely go back for those.
I was going to take a photo of the yummy sweet potato fried and onion strings, but locusts attacked before I had a chance.
Burgers were tall. Very tall.
4.  Here are some layouts I created for Jillibean Soup.
Don't freak out! Yes, I used flowers in a layout. And I made those!
A little layout about my trip to visit KP in NY.
5. What my scrap room looks like right now. Ugh. Not the most productive place.

And I'll leave you with that lovely image burnt in your retina. Sorry. Hopefully, I'll be all organized by next week. And I'll share another photo of the space. Next week. Hopefully.

I am so with you on the Counter...I don't get it! xoxo

And I'll check into the Bobas for you...;) And you'll rock it!

Uhhhmmm...didn't you say something about needing a teaching assistant for your retreat? Looks awesome and I'm having a few twinges of longing, to be honest.

As usual, stellar layouts--how do you do that with a craft room in boxes? Inquiring minds want to know.

I hope all those people that come to visit enjoy the tar pits!

Oh, and your photos and writing (as always) are fantastic. Big hug and much love to you!
