Florence, Me, and Ezra
This time around, I wanted to host it a little closer towards San Diego, as requested by my followers. The Scrapbook Expo was also going on at Anaheim, CA that day. So, it seemed like a great idea to have it around that area.
First, I met with Florence at the Scrapbook Expo. Here are some of the wonderful goodies we found!
Washi Tape from Queen & Co.
I would love to washi tape my desk like this!
Beautiful cards and crafts from Sherri Baldy
Little B Products!
I love seeing such great creativity!
Then, we headed off to Costa Mesa, at SOCO. We met inside the The OC Mix. It turned out to be a really nice venue. If you have never been there before, it is a nice outdoor marketplace filled with shops and restaurants, and lots of great seating indoors and out! We found a nice seating area with couches and a table. We each brought our planners with us. I brought with me several, which I normally do, just in case people are interested in seeing rare planners, or planners they're never seen before.
It is tradition of these meet ups to make a Planner Tower, but since we had so many planners, we just did a planner pile up!

Cesar and Claudia Hernandez created a Facebook Group called California Planner Addicts.
This group is created for anyone who loves their planners & organizers. Filofax, Martha Stewart, Franklin Covey, Erin Condren and everything in between who live in California.
If you are interested in other planner meet ups in California, they are usually announced in that group.
It was great meeting new faces this time around. The planner community on social media has grown tremendously, and to connect with people in person, putting faces to names, is a great experience. It honestly feels like catching up with old friends. Thank you everyone who attended this meet up. Thank you to Florence for hosting it with me and for sharing your birthday with us! Until next time!
