Happy Monday! Are you all recovered from the big wedding last week? I almost am, but boy was my Easter awesome and there is a lot of recovering to do there too. If you are in SoCal, I have 2 events to tell you about happening this coming Mother's Day weekend. The first is the Burbank Book Festival held at the Buena Vista Branch this Saturday May 7 from 1-4. Burbank is celebrating its Centennial with all sorts of events and this one looks to be a good one. Please stop by and make a recycled wool felted sweater flower with me. (Perfect to give mom on her special day!!!)
