I seem to start my posts apologizing for the lack of posts lately; but, I really am sorry for the silence for the last two weeks. It's been non-stop here with projects, cakes, family stuff and just not enough hours in the day to do everything. Top it all off with my indestructible Macbook Pro, self-destructing this week and not being able to get alot of my programs back. Luckily, the important things, i.e. photos, were all backed up. Thank goodness for iCloud and thank goodness for the Genius boys at the Apple store. I now have 270 days left before my Apple Care runs out and I'm on my own. Gulp.
I swear I am close to posting new projects, but in the meantime, a lucky few (myself included) got to meet Kelly Purkey of Studio Calico fame, in person and take a class or two. If you've not heard of her, I suggest you hop over to her blog and check out her work. Early last year, during the CHA, we, as a group from HKMC, got to meet her and begged her to come over to Hong Kong. She was so sweet and promised she would make it out some time.
To our delight and fortune, Kelly had planned a trip to Tokyo to see friends and decided to drop by Hong Kong for that promised visit. Needless to say, I was one of the first to raise my hand when the date was set for the classes.
We got to work with a mini-pack of Amy Tangerine Sketchbook papers, Thickers, stickers and Kelly's own brand new acrylic stamps. She did two classes; a mini-album in the morning and a layout in the afternoon. I wanted to do both classes but was only able to do the mini-album since there were other obligations in the afternoon. Boo. Regardless, I had a lot of fun. It was nice to see a lot of familiar faces and we all had a good laugh and walked away with some very cute albums.
Thanks so much to Kelly and to HKMC for organizing the event. We also hope that Kelly enjoys the rest of her time here in Hong Kong and Japan. Hope to see her back out here again in the future.
Thanks for dropping by!
