Urban Arts and Crafts!

Ahhhh!! What a great weekend I had!!! How was yours?!?

Friday, here at the store, we had our mini weekend NO FRILLS crop!!! I 'attempted' to do some cropping - NOT!!! i spent more time runnin' my mouth!! But that was great - cuz it was SO nice to catch up with some old friends that i hadn't seen in FOREVA!!!

Saturday was FAHHHBULOUS!!!!
I had the honor of traveling to Kansas City with two wonderful women!! Renee and Jana!!! Jana had found a jewelry soldering class being held at ONE of her FAVORITE stores - urban arts and crafts - and was interested in taking it!! We were tickled to join her!!! So, we all headed up there around 8:00ish - with bux in hand!!! We arrived in KC around 11:00ish - and this store is located in the CUTEST little strip mall!! Think Bradley fair - only smaller and a LOT MORE UPSCALE!!! (almost UNAFFORDABLE upscale - but soooo nice!) We ate lunch at a wonderful place called "The Cafe"!!! It was YUMMY!!! Then we hit the shops!!! I think we purchased a total of NINE pairs of flip flops between the three of us!!! (we had to do a little shopping for Krusty, since she was nice enough to hang out back here and run the store!) With our LATTE's in hand from "LATTE LAND"!! (love that name!) we were ready to hit Urban Arts and Crafts for our class!! It was SOOOO nice to take a class where NO ONE KNEW YOU!! We were able to sit back and LEARN and just BE in the class!! BLISS!! (although renee was being asked by random customers where certain items were in the store!! tee hee!!) This store is SOOOOO cute!! It's a cross between a trendy fabric store (with the latest fabric from Amy Butler).....a small scrapbooking section and jewelry making section and some yarn for knitting and crocheting!! It's so NICE with a boutique-y feel to it!! And the staff was SUPER sweet as well!! (that always helps!) Soooo we spent three hours learning how to make some ADORABLE charm (5 to be exact!) i am addicted!! So - you'll start to see more of that "stuff" here at the attic as well....anddddd, don't be surprised if you see a class coming up on this stuff too!!!!! :)

this was a picture of the KC skyline!!
so - after Urban Arts and Crafts - we headed up to the plaza to hit our FAVORITE SHOPS!!! We did some shopping, laughing, eating and drinking and had an absolute BLAST!!!! We ate at the Cheesecake Factory - and OMG i am IN LOVE with their CHEESECAKE!! DELISH!!! (I also tried my very first REAL TRUFFLE!!

Renee POOPED out on us on the WAY home!!!

Besides that - we've restocked the store with some neat new things!! Glue Dots - now come in a dispenser!!! :) YEAH to that!!!

The New CHATTERBOX paper is here - LOVE IT!! You HAVE to see it AND feel it to love it!! :)

Some NEW cuttlebug embossing folders.......new magazines........SOME of the new Scenic Route Liberty line - not all of it's here yet - BUT it's on the way!!! :)
I'm sure some of you have already heard the sad news.....Kelly Truby taught her last class this month :( As with so many of us this time of year, she has a LOT of balls in the air!! So - something has to give!! We will miss her, and wish her the best!!! Thank you for sharing your talent and friendship with us for this short time!!!

FLAG (fight like a girl) shirts are BACK IN STOCK!!!

Renee's "What Matters Most" class is quickly approaching!! FINALLY - here are some photos of her class!! I am REALLY excited for this class - it's going to be SO unique TO EACH individual that takes it!!! I can't wait to see what each student pulls together for this class!!

KITS!!! WOW - mom, kristy and renee have been busting out the kits for you!! Our kit wall, in the crop shop has been ON FIRE!!! They have been coming up with seasonal two page layouts for you to use in your scrapbooks - no brainers - just put them together and adhere your photos!! Thank you ladies SO much!! You're doing a fabulous job!!! :)
Look who came to visit us last week!?!?! Andrew Welch!!! such a CUTIE PIE!
