Today we set sail for the 3rd annual Crafty Chica Cruise!
Four solid days of crafting, cocktails and chatter. The only sad part is that I’m going to miss the doggies! We have house sitter who will be here to disperse TLC, but it is just not the same. I wish I could bring my five Chihuahuas on the ship. Sure, they would yap at everyone, probably make the crafters spill the glitter, but I bet they would warm up nice.
Here are the projects we are making, and I’m going to post pictures as we are making them!!!
– Art Card Tiaras
– Triple Embellished Canvas Book
– Day of the Dead Standing Sculpture
– Kamikaze Mixed Media Charm Bracelet
– 3D Pop Art Shadow Box
– Silk Colored Scarf by Yoli Manzo (Sacred Yoli)
– Embossed Metal 101 by Michele Parlee (Artsy Gringa)
– The last class is a secret until we make it, I want the ideas to be spontaneous to the crafters. It involves paper!
Yes, we will be doing the cruise again next year, in March!
I’ll be posting pictures, but I wanted to send out a HUGE thank you to the craft companies and book publishers who sent goodies for us to use for our projects! They were all very gracious, speedy and deserve lots of good karma in return.
