The cutest store in Alameda, CA! Pippa & Co.

Hey party People!
I ran across a couple of cute posts on IG and they belonged to the sweetest store ever!
Once I knew it was in the Bay Area I knew I needed to go a pay a visit.
You can find the shop website here: Pippa & Co.
It's darling... I will let the pictures speak for themselves.


Ballon Bar, all handmade goods, workshops and more! What ever you are looking for you are sure to find it here. I did not get to meet the owner but I did meet her lovely assistant Arlene. She was very kind and welcoming. As you can see in the pictures everything was adorable! I wanted it all.
If you are ever in the area this is your one stop party shop!

#NSD - Hells Yeah!

Hey friends!
So how was your NSD!? Here is a peek into my NSD!
Balloons... oh you know me to well! It's not a party without balloons and a theme!   
We started off by having some pina coladas because lets face it - I signed a contract at JoAnn's no alcohol!
Here I am trying to perform my best art work on these balloons. If I was smart I would of cut some vinyl!!
My crew! These girls! I swear we could sit all day and not craft but have sooo much fun!
We finally made it to JoAnn's and this is the drink I whipped up for us.  The mat and AT book belongs to Linda.  NSD is a day where we get to not only craft together but share our opinions on well.. craft stuff! ha!  
ok so this picture... this was right before we ended the day. We could not see a damn thing out of those pineapple glasses but it was the best 10 minutes ever trying to take a picture!
ok now you may laugh at us! This sums up our NSD fun!

This was our set up....... we had so much fun just hanging out - we didn't want the evening to end! 

Here's Linda working away... 

Here's Liz and her graduate!

Theresa workin her fiskars.
Selfie! This is what was happening. I think we lost Liz in this one because she was shopping!

Here is the loot that I could not pass up.... Heidi Swapp! Yes, I had been eyeing this 4 whole punch seems like forever. It seemed it had been sold out online everywhere. Low and behold right here in Fremont Cali! Those punches were waiting for me!!

Well that's it folks! Thanks for stopping by and hanging out with me while I recapped my NSD! If you have never attended a NSD I encourage you to do so! If you did what did you work on!?

The girls and I are getting together for our second annual NSD party!
Last year I served up strawberry margaritas but this year it's all about pineapples!
I ran to my local Hobby Lobby and Dollar Tree and found these goodies. I am so excited for our holiday! You can check out last years party here : NSD Party 2014

Yes,  I making the pledge to get shit done! Photos will be laid (lol) and layouts will be made!
I am hoping to make at least 5 layouts, 5 Project life spreads, Start and finish my Dec. Daily 2014 and finish my daughter's baby shower album! whew! That is a lot of crap but that's my goal!
