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.
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 Swap. Here is a photo of my Chantelaine Purse Swap partner, Charlotte. She overwhelmed me with the beautiful necklace she made for me. She is a very special art friend, that I met at another event and we were swap partners.
The ornament swap was title "The Beautitudes" and each of the 10 participants made 10 ornaments for the beatitude they were assigned. This is my ornament.
It was 3 days filled with classes by talented teacher.
Meeting up with art friends...
The final day was a trip to the Rose Bowl Flea Market. We made lots of good finds to bring home!
