We survived our big weekend!
What a great time we had on Friday and Saturday. We decided to have a day of shopping before the class day, so Friday 14 of us carpooled around town to some of Paula and my favorite spots. We had so much fun searching for good junk while getting to know each other.
Rust and Roses
Lunch at Postinos
Found, Domestic Bliss
Dinner at Liberty Market
THE CLASS - before
THE CLASS - during
THE CLASS - after
Okay, we think the class was good, but can we talk about the food! First we have the Canada ladies bringing us Canadian candy to munch on, but then Sandra brings everyone their own bag of these to die for cookies.....and it's Ann's birthday and she brought us all some Pumpkin bread. I think it was just a continuous all day feed!
All weekend long we got asked if we were doing the class again next year....or for that matter any other event. I told Paula, it's kind of like childbirth, we need to give it a little time to let the memory fade before we can think of it again.
Thank you to all the sweet ladies that came and spent a couple of days with us....it was great!!
On a side note, we had promised that after the class was over we would gather all of our "leftovers" to make several partial kits. We have searched, hunted and gathered a pretty full grouping of goodies that were in the original "Junk Drawer Advent Calendar Kit". It is missing a few items from the original kit, but we were actually surprised with how much we were able to come up with.
There are 2 options -
Kit #1 - $119 - still includes - digital download of pictures and instructions, butter pat, silver ladle, bottle brush tree, locket, watch movement, watch face, wood plaque, glitter, all chipboard pieces, pre-punched pin tops, pins, full ephemera pack, bird, red and black ribbon, burlap (for pin board), tin full of beads, findings and treasures.
Kit #2 - $109 - includes everything in Kit #1 except locket, silver ladle and burlap.
Kits do not include - clear stamps, rhinestone buckle, fork, small gold frame. Also doesn't include the items that can be purchased in Etsy - tags, wings, ribbon.
Well, that lasted for 15 minutes! Maybe I should say congratulation's to those that got one!
