It has taken me a long time to post about the fabulous weekend that was “Dream Girls 2.” Once again, it’s hard to express how truly lovely this event was. You really have to experience it to understand. So much love, creativity, support, friendship. Almost too much for this rose loving girl to take. Let’s just say, there were tears and laughs a plenty. I want to publicly thank Tiffany the gorgeous (okay, maybe not so much Friday night), hostess of this spectacular event. Again, I took no pictures as there were so many professional photographers capturing the feel of the weekend and I knew that they would do so much better at it than I. I also want to thank Terri Brush who always comes up with the best projects. I only did the Saturday project which was a soldered birdcage with a crown inside. It was so much fun seeing how everyone interpreted the project to make it their own. Here’s how mine came out.
And a close up of the crown.
I wanted to keep it very simple. I didn’t have a bird for my cage, but that’s alright. The crowns were a bit challenging at first, but now I want to make a whole bunch more.
I want to do a little shout out to some of my favorite peeps that I was lucky enough to spend time with. Miss Kimberly, you know I love you and wish we weren’t 4 hours apart. Jeanne, you are a total nut and I so love that about you. Getting to see you only once a year is just not enough, we need to plan something and soon! Any luck with that move to the PNW you were talking about? Lisa, it was so great getting to spend more time with you this year. I feel like we are kindred spirits in so many more ways than just our name. Patricia, even though we only got a few minutes Friday night to chat, I think you are awesome! Beth, it was so lovely spending time with you. I felt like we were instant friends and I hope we can hang out again soon. Robin, Joy, Cindy, Natalie and all the other dream girls, thank you for making this such a memorable weekend for me. And lastly, I can’t forget my partner in crime, Isabel, the best road tripping buddy ever.
I got some great vintage goodies to share with you so I’ll be back soon with pics. Hope you’re having an awesome week!
