Camera Issues...

I don't know why...
But I am forever having camera issues!

The store camera doesn't like to down load pictures anymore, so we started using the card in Kevynn's camera. That worked for awhile and now the card doesn't like to be switched from camera to camera. We have been resorting to using her camera most of the time, but she isn't always here and sometimes she doesn't have her camera with her.
I have a personal camera but I usually I don't know where my camera is, or I leave it at home when I need it. The photo card is super small and I needed an adapter so I could put my card into the computer. That worked for awhile too, but now not so much. I'm not sure why, but the computer isn't reading the card anymore.
What happened to the days of simple photo taking? I guess it went by the wayside with technology and instant gratification. I would love to have all the cameras in the above picture...

The point of my story is I can't always post photos of all the things happening in the shop. For example this weekend we had some AMAZING CLASSES! They were packed and full of fun! Everyone loved the Jack & Cat classes~ they received rave reviews.
I even remembered my camera, and remembered to take pictures I just can't download them now. The daily life of a shop owner is always challenging.

2nd Friday...

Last Night's Fashion Show...

Meet "Crafty Girl"~ She's a crafting super hero!

Notice the fine detailing on her top with ruffled crepe paper. She is also wearing necklaces designed by Tim Holtz and Jack & Cat Curio! Topping off Crafty Girl's top is a crepe paper rose and ribbon rose.
Mystic Paper's own Kevynn is the designer of this couture paper dress and her sister Alex is the model. There was a Sci-Fi fashion show for Downtown Mesa's Second Friday over at the 101 Gallery. the fashion show was sponsored by our friends at Evermore Nevermore! We had to make up our own character and we came up with Crafty Girl!

Crafty Girl has a pair of Super Scissors~( shocking isn't it?) they have super powers and can cut down villains with one swoop of their blades. They are also very handy for cutting paper.

You can find Crafty Girl making collages up and down Main Street from items she finds along the sidewalk or glittering the walls at Mystic Paper...that is, when she's not too busy fighting villains.

Isn't the back of this dress SO ADORABLE? The skirt is made from wrap sheets from Cavallini.
Alex also has some vintage seam binding flowing through her hair. There's nothing better than a frilly super hero...
