An Enchanted, Artistic Affair

If you've never gone on an art retreat, GO!  I did my second recently, "An Enchanted Affair", put on by the lovely, sweet, Kim Caldwell.  Not only did I make some wonderful things, and learn some new techniques, but I met amazing, kindred women.  It's so fun to be in a whole room full of women who love old lace, and fabric and color, and creating things.  I'm stealing a few pics from Karla Nathan, (who is just as amazing and kind as I'd hoped she'd be) because I somehow failed to take any, again.

That's me on the right, making my "stay glued down dammit" face.  And look how lovely the whole venue was...

...the whole thing was just perfect, and I can't wait to go again next year!  The theme will be "Downton Abbey", so I'll be looking for luscious tea dresses all year.


  1. Hi Kathy! Thank you for thinking of me. I am beginning to feel normal. Apparently the Affaire was too much fun for me. I can't wait to dive into your posts about journal techniques. I've just bought some Dylusions sprays (and stamps and stencils) that I'm unsure how to use. No excuses! Her YouTube videos are helpful. Bon soir. Charlotte

  2. I wish I'd taken even more photos! What a fun weekend.
