California Dreaming

I am back from a most wonderful week end in California. It was a girl friends crafting week end. Sweet Kim Caldwell organized the most special week end for 12 of us at Big Bear. What a special, fun creative time it was. I can't begin to express my thanks and gratitude to Kim and all the lovely sweet ladies that were there. From the swaps to all the goodies and the classes it was a great weekend. Thanks to all of you for an experience I won't forget

So backing up a bit... Kim H and I flew in to Cali Wed nite. Early Thursday we headed out for pedicures and then to get Jessie. We all shopped a bit and had a yummy dinner and headed over to Oasis for Kim's class Welcome to My Neighborhood. I wasn't able to complete it so when it is finished I will post pics. Fun class.

Friday am it was up and off up the big hill to Big Bear. Lots of twisting, winding roads had many of the group feeling ill. After a wonderful lunch Holly taught us a collaged hanging. That I was able to finish and I love it.
So this is turning into a very long post so I will end here and post Saturday and Sunday later. Below are a few snapshots of the "cabin" and our beautiful surroundings
Our beautiful home for the week end
