This year's "Summer in Paris" retreat was an amazing experience. I laughed until my sides hurt. I made some wonderful new friends. I renewed old friendships. I ate too much chocolate and drank too much diet coke. Here's a glimpse at our fantastic weekend:
The programs -- vintage ephemera all tied up with tulle!
Romana's Gypsy Aprons (for those who weren't able to attend, you'll be able to get yours through my Etsy store soon!)
Lots & lots of shopping
Amy tries on her new tiara
Tiara teachers -- sisters Maripat & Cupcake
Afternoon tea in between classes
Thanks to all who attended. The gang & I are working on a "Retro Retreat" for next Spring... think vintage housewives and "Mad Men"...
Thanks to everyone who helped me set up (Amy -- special thanks for putting together ALL of those check-in packets). Thanks to Jenny, Cenia & Suni for your slave labor. My CraftChix, thanks for your unending support. Lynne & Marirosa, thanks for letting me steal these photos. And to my teachers, this retreat would have never happened without your fantastic classes.
