I saw my very first artichoke fields, and yes, was enough of a tourist to take photos. We stopped at this little roadside stand and Ana and I ate fried artichoke hearts - YUMMY! We brought some fresh artichokes home too and later Ana gave me a lesson on the best way to enjoy this treat! We also enjoyed pizza right on the beach from Pizza My Heart - complete with a commemorative t-shirt! Last thing that evening, we stopped at a great frozen yogurt place and I enjoyed Key Lime and Cheesecake frozen yogurts topped with fresh pineapple and sliced almonds. Mmmmmmmm good. Laughter with a friend, beautiful places, and tasty treats - the makings of an amazing afternoon exploring a new part of California!

Phew! Been AWOL for a while as I am in full scale madwoman style preparation for a trip to California this week. The When Creativity Knocks team will be attending Maker Faire in San Mateo, CA. We will be bringing the Airstream trailer and offering fun make & takes sponsored by great sponsors like Elmer's, Blumenthal Lansing, C&T Publishing/TAP Paper, Judikins......., as well as taping several episodes while we are there. Lots of prep work ahead of time, but Maker Faire is always a truly unique experience and I'm sure this one won't be a disappointment! I will share photos when I return next week.
