This was such a great weekend of fun times as well as learning a few new crafts.  My mother and sister came to visit this weekend and we had a non-stop full weekend that just ended a few hours ago.  It began on Friday when we went down to Piecemakers Country Store in Costa Mesa, CA.  (www.piecemakers.com)  This is a small country style restaurant with arts and crafts for sale.  They also have a variety of classes anyone can take to learn a new craft.  They had some really neat things people made and I ended up getting a few things as well.  After our adventure at Piecemakers, we made our way up to Valencia, CA for a Scrapbooking class.  My sisters good friend was teaching the class.  We spent the entire rest of the evening their and into the night.

On Saturday, we were up to an early start so we could make it down to the Glitterfest in Santa Ana, CA. (Glitterfest.com)  Glitterfest is a festival where a people set up a booth to sell their crafts and homemade items.  That was a very fun show.  I got a really neat terrarium along with some other neat plants.  After Glitterfest, we made our way to downtown Los Angeles to an area that sells tons of fabric and trim and much more.  It is streets of stores that sell everything a sewer could dream of.  The best place we found was Textile Collections.  They offer unbeatable deals on fabric and are on S. Wall St.  Then, we made our way to to the French General for a beading class on making Posies.  (www.frenchgeneral.com)

Sunday, we woke up late and took it easy.  We all had a nice relaxing brunch at the Cheesecake Factory.  Then, off to the airport we went.

We had some really good laughs and made some fun memories this weekend.  It was really great to see my mom and my sister!  Thank you for coming out and visiting me!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Missing you guys already.
