For Christmas I was given a day of crafting at French General {thank you Gigi!}. Until this weekend I had never seen Kaari's shop in LA. I went to France site unseen. It was everything I had hoped for and more. The store is filled with the most beautiful French ribbons and curiosities. And the classes I took were wonderful. One was how to make a box out of an old book taught by the O-so fabulous Molly {plus a pair of earrings for inside the box... haven't taken mine off}. And the second class was kind of a fabric, sewing collage. Both wonderfully fun. A highlight was that I sat next to Cathy who I adore and met in France. She has a company called Summerland Mercantile which I am sure you will hear me talking about more {I am determined to go up for one of their sales}. Between Alt a couple weeks ago and now this last weekend I have reconnected with 5 of the amazing ladies I met in France... what fun!
