    Look, I'm glad you all had fun and blah blah. But NOT ONE of you took a picture of all this pie you keep raving about????

    This forum has really gone downhill lately ....

    Taking photos of pie just slows down the eating of the pie.

    Here are the pies I ate, in this order:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Lemon cream cheese
    Cheesecake
    Chocolate silk

    Lemon cream cheese was my favorite since the tartness of the lemon broke up some of the sweetness of the cream cheese cheesecakeyness. I usually don't go for chocolate pies, but theirs was really good.

    I was going to bring a whole pie home with me but by the time I left (after 10pm!) they were sold out of most of their pies.

    Okay, I had so much fun the other night - And I have SO many people to thank!

    But first, pictures:

    [​IMG]

    Okay, these were all the pins I traded for or were zapped throughout the night, with the exception of a top secret few I traded for that will be zaps for other people.

    I traded with so many people that I am not even going to try to name them all because I know I’ll accidentally leave someone out.

    I was zapped by @timeerkat (Dole Whip Pin), @AshleyV (Chuckles!), and @Ksnuggles (Lost Boys Pin). (These were just the pin zaps, people!)

    I was practically zapped by Janice a.k.a. @Jrdnsmom who gave me this AMAZING cats pin for an OE BoxLunch set. My favorite pin of the night by far. It has both Figaro AND Lucifer in it!

    [​IMG]


    Also, someone gave me this Cinderella pin in exchange for keychains. I don’t remember who you are if you are on the forum, but I’m still amazed by your generosity!

    [​IMG]


    Now, for non-pin items:

    [​IMG]

    I hope I got everything in.



    Okay, first off, OMI omg. @prettyomi not only picked me up and drive me to the event, but gave me so many things throughout the night. I got a birthday card, free comic books(!!), stickers (including a custom one of all the Disney cats!), a Ramsay Bolton mystery mini (I love him; don’t judge), a little Figaro vinyl, and an adorable Figaro tsum tsum brooch (made by @Pinasaurus!). Thank you, thank you for everything, and my apologies if I left anything out!!!

    [​IMG]

    Secondly, @Romancing_Train not only traded me a bunch of amazing pins but also made me the sweetest thing ever - a new name badge featuring my Belated fur kid Ashi:

    [​IMG]



    Okay, next up, @AshleyV was handing out gifts left and right - and aside from zapping me with a new Chuckles pin for my clown collection, zapped me with a Louie figurine for my best friend and the cutest little Figaro toy ever:

    [​IMG]



    Darice @pincrazy brought a bag of tsum tsums and told me to pick out whatever I wanted. When my eyes landed on this little cutie, I fell in love:

    [​IMG]

    She’s an awesome little opossum from Splash Mountain. She has a wee little bow and a fat rat tail! I’ve gotten really picky about what tsum tsums I add to my collection anymore, but she was just impossible to resist. Thank you, Darice!

    [​IMG]

    I also got this silly little Cheshire plush from @ConniesHobby. Love it!


    @Blurkishgirl made these really yummy cookies shaped like pie:

    [​IMG]

    David was kind enough to share his with me, so I know it was DELICIOUS. But I brought mine home to my grandmother, who has the sweetest tooth in Southern California:

    [​IMG]

    She says thank you! LOL.

    Last but not least, a beautiful handmade necklace from Amy (Docfish2u’s wife), who knows my style well. (I was once a bit of a goth and still enjoy dressing the part at times. And I LOVE anything related to bats, so the wings on this thing are perfect.)

    [​IMG]

    The Canadian flag was from @CanaDaLE, who it was a pleasure to finally meet! The buttons were from @Jrdnsmom (the Rapunzel one) and her dad “Abe,” who I finally had the pleasure of actually trading with.

    Also, of course, thanks to David a.k.a. @docfish2u for throwing this whole party year after year. It is truly my favorite social event ever. I love all you people.

    Sadly, I did not take any pictures at the actual event. Are there any more besides the one @avatarang posted?

    We really need to remember to take a group photo next year!

    We are home now. What a great time we had with our socal family! First and foremost we need to thank Darice (PinCrazy). She is the one who sets up everything so all we have to do is fly down and throw the party. It would be so much harder to do without her tireless help. You are truly amazing Darice.

    Secondly, thank you so much @Blurkishgirl those pie cookies are amazing. What do I have to do to get more?

    Thirdly, we missed a few people this year. I am sorry that things came up that made you miss the event. You were missed greatly and we hope to see you next year. Please take care of yourselves.

    Lastly, for those who attended our event, we are so thankful for you all. The love we feel at these events is very addicting. It is a chance to get to spend time with our extended family and we treasure it. Thank you to everybody who traded with us and zapped us.

    We had planned on having next years event on Star Wars day next year, but we think it will be better if we do Saturday April 27th, 2019.

    See you all next year.
