Ahhhh vacation. Just what you need to get your creative juices flowing again, right? Well, I think so. It helps when you get to meet up with a fellow blogger along the way.
On the way home, we stopped by Santa Barbara for lunch with a girlfriend, and then a little past that, met up with the lovely Erin from Miss Crayola Creepy. When I knew we would be driving the coastal route home, I sent Erin a note to see if she would be interested in meeting. I was in the middle of my sewing rampage and had huge plans! Well, by the time we met, I was such a bum and hadn't made anything in weeks. But I still couldn't wait to meet. If you remember, I featured her back in March and love reading along with her blog.
It was so great meeting up with her! We had some ice cream at this super-cute place called Doc Burnstein's, and chatted about sewing idols, blogging, meetups, and life in general. Oh, and she brought me a sewing book that I've had my eye on for a while, Famous Frocks. So sweet! (I was totally lame and not prepared, but I see something exciting for her in the near future. ;)) Time flew by and I was sad to leave, but we had to get back on the road to get home.
Now, I'm feeling refreshed and ready to get back into my sewing space. I haven't had time just yet as I'm prepping for a baby shower that I'm throwing this weekend, but I can definitely see some sewing taking place immediately afterwards.
