Holiday Angel Dolls

Last Saturday I took a trip to Santa Monica to take Lisa Guerin’s Holiday Angel Doll class at Sweetpeas and Snapshots.
It was my first visit to Sweetpeas and this fabulous shop didn’t disappoint! It is in a fun old building and decorated really great with vintage things everywhere. And all the fun paper goodies!
Oh, it is full of fabulous things!
They had 30% off their Halloween things so I got a few things for myself and for sister Tinkie. I got us both a really cute black coffin shaped cardboard book to embellish and some fun tickets – one roll of tickets says Trick and the other roll say Treat.
There was even a doggie section!

It was fun to meet Lisa Guerin – I’ve been a fan of her work in the Stampington magazines where she is one of their Director’s Circle Artists!
She taught a lively class and we all got to use her extensive collection of Character Construction stamps to create our holiday angel dolls. I not only picked up great tips on stamping, but I learned how to set a rivet : - )
I had to leave at 4 pm, but the class was still going strong when I left. They probably keep creating into the night! Here are my angel dolls in the works.
Thanks for a fabulous class Lisa!

So wonderful! Don't you just LOVE that store? Everything in there is sooo enticing! It's definately worth the drive!

Is it ok if I meet with you in person sometime next week to give you your goodie? You are not so far away from me! ;0)
