A wonderful day at el & em!

It's been almost a month since my Once Upon a Springtime class at el & em - and I'm still reveling in all the beautiful and heartfelt detail that Denise Johnson (owner and fellow Graphic 45 DT alum) put into making the event special!

We had a lovely potluck-style class. Denise made a yummy soup and everyone brought something that made me even happier for stretchy clothing. :) The classroom was decorated so beautifully. I was so impressed! I love Denise's style and attention to detail. 

I just wanted to thank all the lovely ladies who came and to those from far away that ordered kits! It always warms my heart to meet everyone, both new faces and old!

This is Leslie H. One of the many super sweet ladies that came!

My lovely friend Lauren drove all the way from Bellevue to craft with us. I felt pretty blessed!

My other lovely friend Lisa couldn't attend, but she left me a heartfelt little gift after she picked up some super-cool lockers from el & em.

Thank you to Denise and the ladies for the beautiful fold out card!

If you're ever in Portland or Vancouver, you must stop by el & em and say hi to Denise. Her store is so beautifully curated with unique vintage finds and even the latest Graphic 45 papers and Staples! 

Denise and me. She is the definition of lovely.
Thank you for letting me share these photos. It was truly such a fun day and I can't wait to visit el & em again! Denise puts on some amazing workshops almost every week, so check out her blog to see if you can make one. At el & em, you can learn all kinds of mixed media and projects for the home, in addition to paper crafting. :)

In the mean time, I hope wherever you, that you're having a lovely Mother's Day or at the least, enjoying the day with someone (or some doggy/kitty) who loves you. Thanks for stopping by!
