Scrapbooking Friends

I took a quick trip to Nashville last week to watch our daughter's show choir competition. As a bonus, I got to see my friend Connie (who used to teach with me at Memory Bound in Iowa) and meet two of her friends, Lola and Sabrina. I had already met those two online so it was super fun to meet them in real life!

Connie and Sabrina even came to watch part of the show choir competition and now have been fully indoctrinated into the realm of aerosol hairspray and sequins. It was so fun to have them there!

Lola is co-owner of Scrappucino, such a warm and cozy scrapbooking store. I was really excited to get to visit the store and do a little shopping! Lola has been making some gorgeous fabric flowers which were fun to see. She also has some very talented scrapbookers (including Sabrina and Connie!) who have made beautiful samples for the store. I loved seeing their work and chatting about important issues ONLY SCRAPBOOKERS CAN UNDERSTAND, such as adhesive! :-)

And best of all, I got to hear their ADORABLE accents! Goodness me, from the minute I stepped off the plane, I loved hearing those Nashville folks talk! I am working on my accent so that next time I visit, I won't seem like such a northerner! :-)

Thanks, ladies, for the hospitality! Ya'll made me feel very welcome!

Accents?? We don't have accents in the South!! ;o)

Connie said...

Only Sabrina and Lola have accents. I have retained my northern nasalness (is that a word?) It was great to see you, Janet, and we loved seeing all the choir performances!

Oh, and thanks for "making" our picture. :)

Janet said...

haha Heather! Maybe it's ME with the accent, huh? ;-)

Yes, Connie -- Thanks for the clarification! lol I meant to mention that in my post! Maybe after a few more years, you will develop your southern accent, too!

Janet, It was great meeting you. I enjoyed talking about all that adhesive with you. Sorry you didn't get to meet Kathy.

Maybe next time we can do some southern cooking for you.
