What a blast!!!!

I so wish you ALL could have been there!!!
Just to be able to meet a fraction of my precious blog friends at
the Paper Cowgirl Retreat was just amazing....
I keep thinking about how much I loved finally seeing so many
dear friends IN PERSON!

I don't get out of this little country town much but am so glad that Lisa
talked me into finally doing something like this!
I wanted to share the photos I took while teaching ~
I just wish I would have taken a picture of each girl with their peat pot baby!
When you are a first timer, you don't realize what you might regret, you know?
You may have seen a few of these earlier but I just have to share:

Everyone working so hard on their project ~

Some of their finished babies!

It was so wonderful seeing how each girl added their own special touches
to their project!! They brought their own bags filled with trims and
things they loved ~ a sign of a true artist!!!

I have ten kits coming back from Texas this week too!
I was able to sell a few to girls that didn't take my class and
Lisa is sending the remainder back home to me.

If you would like first dibs....they include everything (including a tutorial) but
the paint for the eggs, matte gel medium and fabri tac glue.
They are 35.00 + 5.00 shipping and I'd be happy to mail you one!
Just email me at sewmanyroses (at) yahoo (dot) com
if you'd like to reserve one.
I'll eventually put them in my Etsy store ~

I've also added the tutorial to my tutorial shop if you'd like to make your own!!

I'll share a few more photos of my shopping and
the Petticoats on the Prairie show tomorrow ~

Wishing you a great Monday precious friends...
thank you so much for cheering me on!!!!

hugs and love,

Sometimes the stretching beyond a comfort zone is just the charge we need. I'm so glad that you went because those gals really wanted to meet you and spend time with you. Look at all the joy! And I am certain that they learned a lot of tips that they'll continue to use in their art projects!

Very sweet Dawn, I see Karen in one of the pic's! I'll have to tell her I recognized her:) I saw these peat pots, very similar on the Paper Whimsey website, they just wern't covered with paper but the same idea:) I love them and plan on making a few too. Glad you guys had a great time! Hugs Marilou

That happy look on the lady holding her creation says it all!!! Small group creating is so mind opening and amazing. Sorry to have missed this venue. Blissful inspirations...

Wish I could have been there to see you. I was doing an estate sale over the weekend. Maybe the next time you come I will get to spend a little time with you. So glad you had such a wonderful time.

Those girlies sure made some cute peat pot baby nests! I'm so glad you had so much fun! Maybe when my boys are a bit older I can come play at Paper Cowgirls, too!
