ZIZO #15: Springtime in Oregon

A few weekends ago, I took a weekend trip up to Eugene, Oregon to spend a crafty, girl weekend with a group of friends I have know for about ten years now. We met because we were all members of the monthly scrapbook club, Club Scrap. We also all lived in the greater San Francisco bay area. Over time, many of us have stopped receiving Club Scrap's kits and people have moved away. But we've still remained friends. 
And every so often, we get together to craft.
And have fun.
And do girl stuff.
It's all good!
Since I was in Eugene, I took Henry out for dinner and we went for a walk around campus where I found the wonderful flowering tree which I'm using for this week's Zoom In, Zoom Out.

Hi Rinda. Somewhere along the way I lost your blog? Don't know how that happened but glad I found you again. Awesome meeting with your friends. This type of activity is definitely needed. Have a great day and good to see you again.

I used to have a group of crafty friends that got together regularly. Only two of us are crafting regularly now, and I do miss our get-togethers.

People who don't, don't get what a powerful glue binds us crafty gals together! Lovely weekend - do you take turns to host?

Beautiful ZIZO too - love the colour of the sky in the background and the *hints* of pink.
