Scrap Weekend- My place

Okay heres the deal. You guys pick the date, no matter how far out. Just make sure you all agree to when it is. It's only one weekend that I can do this. So we all have to agree on the same weekend.

You pay for the Air Fare out to SFO or OAK (San Francisco, Oakland, or San Jose Mineta Airport), I'll pick you up. We drive to Carmel by the Sea. Spend all day by the ocean, and all night scrapping.

Accomodations are paid for.

Just let me know when! I'm serious. You guys are always talking about how cool it would be to have a crop. I'm saying, I'll host! Now it's not 17 mile drive, but it's not a shack either. So, pick a weekend!

(oh yeah and we split the food, theres a Safeway just down the road that we can shop at. But no scrapping stores nearby :(, at least not that I know of)

Ya know Erin, this may not be too far-fetched. I have to buy 3 plane tickets for us in June to Fresno (darn! not SF!) but if I could have time to save a bit, it'd be so fun! I have relatives there too. Man this would be so awesome to plan.

Not as much as you might think. We are talking pretty tight quarters here. It's a two bedroom two bath house. My grandparents bought it back in 1984 when Reganomics was in full swing and housing prices were low. It's about four blocks from the beach, and while the view isn't great, the front yard, could be, if we actually had time to put more work into it. It's a work in progress. After my grandmother died in 1989 my grandfather stopped caring. He let the house go. The garage was so mildued out that you could barely stay in there for more than 2 minutes without having an asthma attack. The carpet is unfashionably rust color shag carpet and the bathrooms were a disaster area, but it is a work in progress. When he died in 2007 my family took the action he wouldn't let us take. We completely replaced all the pipes (the plumbing was a disaster) replaced the sheetrock in the garage and fixed all the leaks in the washing machine. Fixed the roof, sheetrocked the skylight in the kitchen and tore down the wallpaper in the bathrooms (although what we are going to do in those remains unseen). We replaced the old coffee table with an even older, but much cooler glass and driftwood table, and are working on finding a couch everyone can agree on. So, as you can see, it's not exactly the Hilton Hotel. But it's a great location and if you' rather spend the day perusing shops, Carmel is famous for them! As far as the beaches, Carmel is the ultimate beach spot. The weather doesn't always cooperate. This is Northern California, so we don't have the 80 degree days like L.A. does, but the views are gorgeous. The main beach is also right off of Pebble Beach Golf Course. And the self guided tour of Point Lobos is beyond breathtaking. It's been called the most beautiful meeting of land and water on earth.

that would be fun!!!!! I have to pass on that though, as I'm in need of a girls trip with my best friends, and there's no way DH would support me doing both.

you know, they have scrapbooking cruises. how cool would that be?! but unless I could convince my best friends to do that, I'd be out from that too.

Liz, say the word. You're only two hours away from me, and Carmel is only two hours more, on a good traffic day. We could head down Saturday morning and be there by 11 a.m.
