Being Creative With The Sisterhood of the Ya Ya Traveling Creative Pants...


My sister is coming this weekend... I feel like a little kid at Christmas!  My girlfriends, sister and I used to have our Creative Scrappin' Weekends every three or four months, but lately, we are lucky to have it once a year... Normally, we have six or seven of us.  This weekend, my sister Holly and a girlfriend Bonnie, will drive out and come to my house.  We will have lunch and play on our lap tops, talk, laugh and catch up.  Around 3pm, our other girlfriend, Barbs should be home from work.  We will take her some lunch and continue our Creative Celebration all together the rest of the weekend... They will leave on Monday morning...

We have a Digital Scrap Booking magazine we want to explore and try some of the projects...some mysterious photograph trick Barbs learned from Bonnie, recipes to sample, a possible slumber party on Friday night...(my sister is staying with me and Bonnie is staying with Barbs...but we may have to combine forces in the Creative juices suck us all in...

We ALWAYS have a blast, whatever "trouble" we get ourselves into... I have a vinyl quote I want to hang above my dining room slider leading into the back patio...it says, " The Fondest Memories Are Made When Gathered Around The Table..."  My sister is going to help me hang it..or should I say, "stick it" to the wall.

We may go sight seeing and take photographs and then do something with the photographs...it is a spontaneous combustion of who-knows-what and let's-go-for-it, type of weekend... My sister and I will no doubt do some treasure hunting at a few thrift stores, we are always good luck for one another... She is bringing a stamping she is going to let me borrow.  I want to try some jewelry making...

When we are all together, we are the Sisterhood of the Ya Ya Traveling Creative Pants...

Oh, it sounds as if you are all going to have a wonderful weekend. That's really something to look forward to. Enjoy and try to take some photos for us to share! I'm sure there will be lots of chat and laughter, and isn't that what life is all about really, to share good times with family and friends. I'm really pleased that you have this to look forward to x
