Spellbound was Everything and More...

Just returned from Spellbound 3, a yearly art retreat held in Pasadena, CA, hosted by the dynamic mother-daughter team of Shea Fragoso and Debbie Murray of A Gilded Life. The event was located at the historic Langham Huntington Hotel in gorgeous Pasadena, California. Pre-Event soiree at the A Gilded Life Studio in LA was sponsored by Spellbinders. They had make and take journals that were embellished with their beautiful Spellbinder bezels. This is one of their sweet employees helping me with this project. I hate that I forgot her name. She was so kind and I enjoyed talking with her. Everywhere you looked that night, the place was full of eye candy...I love this place. Then the next day, we were hosted by the French General to lunch and a beautiful erring class. Here I am with the beautiful Kaari Meng, owner of the FG.  One of my favorite parts of the event is the swaps that take place during the event. I participated in the Christmas ornament and the Chantelaine S

Spellbound Preparation

Final weekend preparation for Spellbound in Pasadena, California. Table gifts are a nice treat that some of us bring for the girls at our table. We are assigned to a table with girls from around the country, for a few of our meals, swaps and speakers. Generally there is 6-8 girls at a table. This year, I am sharing some of my vintage finds from France. Here are the teachers that will be here this year. I will be posting more pics later of this event. •   Beth Quinn   •   Colleen Moody   •   Debbie Murray and Shea Fragoso   •   Pamela Huntington   •   Riki Schumacher   •   Terri Brush   •
