This past weekend was WORLD CARD MAKING DAY, a perfect time to create some cards for the troops!! I visited 3 local scrapbook stores where we create cards and had a little fun. Here are the winners of the Prima goodies I gave away at each store:

Collective Journey, Redlands, CA

The Red Bee, Tustin, CA


The Scrappin' Table, Placentia, CA

I collected some great handmade cards too, plus cards I got from some of the Divine Desert Divas for a total of 145 cards collected so far!

On Sunday I taught my “Happy Haunting” Halloween book at Pages From the Heart. Kathy and all the ladies at Pages are so super nice–it was a nice relaxing afternoon while we played witht eh Scor-it and got Misted! I was graced with the presence of Queen Terry again ;)

And Mary from Apple Valley won a goodie from me!


Alot of people noticed the super cute apron I was wearing this weekend. It was made my Boojiboo, an etsy shop based in La Mirada, CA. They create all kinds of fabulous aprons but they are the first shop I have ever seen to offer PLUS sizes!!

The apron style is called “the Betty” and you can buy it online TODAY! This apron fits so nicely, I totally love it and it is made so very very well, with lots of attention paid to all the details. If you have a moment, please check out the Boojiboo shop and let them know “Jennifer from Candy Shoppe Designs” sent you!!


Also, I have had sooo many people ask me about my purse. I got it from Shop Suey located next to Collective Journey in Redlands. Some of you told me you can't find the purse there. I went in to Shop Suey on Friday night and the owner said she would be happy to order it (comes with the matching wallet) but you have to HURRY before they sell out completely!! The style is called the “Topanga” so ask for it by name ;)

Happy Crafting!
