Bittersweet for so many ways. The downfall of Memory Makers Magazine was the start. Then the realisation that the Autumn Escape really was over for another year. Post event crash, isn't that someone clever told me? I couldn't find a cure for post event crash online so I invented one and it comprised of purchasing American Crafts Thickers online and watching Grey's Anatomy after 4 rums. I'm not sure I'll enter my cure for post event crash in Wikipedia though. I woke up Monday morning with a bigger credit card bill than the night before and a nagging headache that screamed "You should have drunk more water and less alcohol". One can only but try.
Talking of Autumn Escape - here are a few pics...
I have heard * rumours * that the 2010 Autumn Escape is booked tentaively for the 16th, 17th, 18th of April 2010. It's rumours of course, but time will tell... registrations should be open in the next week or so. And we listened to all those feedback forms. We are hitting for a full day on the Friday and more optional classes spread over 2 days. Price will go up a little to account for the full day conference charges etc but not too much, we've been working hard to keep them down! Watch the Autumn Escape Blog.!
In the mean-time, take a look at this video. Ahhhh memories :o)
Thanks SO MUCH fabulous teacher, photographer and all round awesome lady, Kim Archer for preparing the video!
Leaving you with some images of Collections boxes from the latest Tarisota collection. I made 2 of the smaller boxes into shaker boxes with beads and butterflies (again from Collections). Then I used them as a front and back for a little book! It's for Abby and has pics of her favourite treasures. All tied with a pretty bow. Fun to do, although it took me a few days trial and error before I worked out what I was actually doing.
Thanks for the lovely comments on the previous post. Onwards and upwards...
