The tale of Paper Tales

This is what we met on New Year's day after trekking to San Diego to visit with Karin and check out Paper Tales. Karin had called ahead and was told they would be open so we were all disappointed ( except for Carlos). At this point I will direct you to Karin's blog because she tells it much better than I ever could.

I will say, however that Paper Tales is adorable and just as Karin told me, I loved Michelle right off. Joleen and I were so appreciative of her coming down to let us in on New Year's Day and how patient she was with the kids. She even let Hannah ring up our sales and the kids use her shopping baskets for shoe storage.

Anyway, if you are in the San Diego area, definitely go check out Michelle's cute little store. It is full of wonderful scrap booking papers, treats for use in collage and mixed media or fun crafts. She has vintage bits, small gifts and art and a list of fun classes. She invited Joleen and I to teach in the store so we are brainstorming some ideas.
