Dream Girls Weekend

So the planning began several months ago.
Lots of behind the scenes creative thinking, the PRESSURE was on, we knew all these girls would arrive with camera in hand!! LOL.....
Tiffany had asked me to come teach a workshop in her home & town, I was honored to say the least.. Tiffany is the most honest open hearted women I have ever met...
The day she sent the invites out to attend, the class was FULL! How amazing is that..
The pictures tell the story..
Tiffany left it up to me what to teach, and so I chose a little Easter project.. Adding learning to solder to the mix with collage, most the class had already tryed there hand at the addicting art.
They were all given this fabulous folder that JOY made here on SECRET assignment!
Their folders were made from vintage wallpapers , vintage papers and ribbons,and personally tagged with there names and event, it was also full of fun embelishments, gifts and candy..
The weekend started with an evening dinner party at Tiffany's home , and let me say the HOME was beyond eye candy, you just couldn't take it all in, I walked around with my camera in hand and realizing I wasn't taking many photos as I was so in aw just looking at everything. We were all welcomed with Chocolate martinis and the best appetizers!
It was a Birthday party for Isabelle and Tammy which made the opening night even more festive!
Tiffany had a friend who also caters do the food, over the top YUM!..
As the evening slowed down, most the girls went to the "Yella Beak Saloon", which what happens at the Beak stays at the Beak if you know what I mean.. hahaha
Breakfast was amazing bakery treats, and then up to the studio Donna and I went to set up.. The project was all top secret, no one knew what they were there to create.... In this group were 4 professional photographers, and let me tell you how hard it is to DUCK and HIDE from 15 women all with camera in HAND! ughhh me and cameras don't see eye to eye!! LOL...
I will let the photos tell the rest of the story, it was an amazing heart felt day,lots of laugher , talent and some shed tears, Tiffany opened the art day with a speech from her heart and let me tell you, there wasn't a dry eye in the room!.. We all had some fun photo opps that I cannot wait to see! so many cameras flashing!! ACk..
Kris from Todays Country store was kind enough to take me to the store to shop after hours! I didnt buy a thing hee hee ( in case hubby reads this ! ) I just LOVE that store full antiques..
Kimberly Tayler an amazing photographer shared some of her photos with me! thanks so much Kim...
I am so blessed to have crossed paths with Tiffany,and I think every lady there felt the same..
If your interested in an art retreat in your home or town, e-mail me and I can tell you how.. I think private home workshops are an amazing day for women to let go and enjoy getting spoiled while making A R T .
