There are no words to describe...

Holiday Hideaway.

I looked in the dictionary...nothing can express how awesome the weekend was.

I'm not even sure where to start...

BUT... I liked...

The attention to detail...LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
Tim is AMAZING!!! But...I already knew that before going...

The YUMMY food...Thanks Mario & Michele...GREAT job!!!

The classes...you'll see my MOST favorite below...

The surprises...just when I thought it couldn't get any better...
IT DID.

The group attending was just soooooooo much fun.
My table mates...Mr & Mrs Stampers Anonymous, Keychain, Kim & Pearl...THE BEST!

My travel mates...the St. Louis 6. Thanks for including me on the church bus...That was fun!

Prescott...what a cool cute town.

The SHOPPING! But that's a story for another day...

Jerome...another story for another day...more shopping...

There's more...but I'll show my favorite class..

When we entered the room, we had a table FULL of these vintage things...



There were HUGE pans of...



And more... (Don't be impressed. I didn't take the photos...I stole them from Sue. THANKS SUE!)




And here's what I made...I am in love with this guy!



Isn't he cute?




I can't wait to make another.




Each turned out different & oh so cool. I'll post more photos just as soon as I find some to steal.
Now...time to get back to the studio to...
MAKE ART!

What a stitch! Bet that's getting a prime spot in the studio! Glad you had a blast. But it probably wasn't much fun going back to the ugly IL weather. Stay warm & share the details--we can't wait to hear them!

I love the bird!! so awesome. I used to live in AZ and traveled to a lot of those towns. There is a lot of pretty places out there. Not just the desert like many people think. It has been so many years, glad to know Jerome is still hanging in there & Prescott is wonderful.
