Thank you girls for all the great responses! I apologize for taking so long to reply, but I've been in california for the past two weeks visiting my family. It put a big smile on my face when I saw how many responses there were! yeah!
Rickrackruby -- Thank you so much for the Thanksgiving invite -- I hope you had a great time with all your friends! I have a friend who works in Scottsdale and I've gone to lunch with her a couple of times and from what I've seen of the city, I really like it! It's the city that most reminds me of Orange County -- like Newport Beach, without the ocean!
Beppycat -- I think it's so cool that you don't drive a car -- bike riding is so fun and healthy, too! I don't think having to ask for a ride makes you a mooch and I'm sure anyone who is cool would understand! Where do you you ride your bike in Chandler? I'm living in Gilbert but it's right on the border of Chandler, so it's more Chandler than Gilbert. Did that make sense? haha. I live in an apartment complex that's right on a whole series of manmade lakes, so my boyfriend and I will ride our bikes next to these beautiful lakes and oggle all the gorgeous houses. It's a lot of fun!
Tinafish -- First off, yah for the Rilo Kiley quote! I love them! Do you like the Postal Service too? I've been listening to their album constantly ever since it came out two years ago -- I'm addicted! Are there any cool Indie Rock/Punk spots around town? I've heard of Modified Arts and The Paper Heart, but have never actually gone to anything at either. Have you? Are the Artwalk First Fridays every first friday, as the name would suggest? I'll be missing the one coming up this week because I'll still be in California.
Booglass -- I would love to teach you what I know about bookmaking. I'm at the very very very early stages of learning, but I could show you what I know so far! I think your idea about all of us getting together and teaching a craft is awesome! I know someone in CA who would do that with a group of his friends and it sounded so cool!
Whew, i feel like I just did a ton of "Shout Outs"! haha.
I agree with Booglass with the "WE MUST do this..." It would be so great to meet all you AZ gals and get our hang out/craft/meet on! Set the time and the place and I'm there!
Thanks again for all the great responses! You all made my day!
Sorry for the length, but I am so so excited about this!
