Pink Saturday Parcel in New Jersey

Vanessa - Grace (ME)- Nancy

Happy Pink Saturday!! Today I wanted to Post about ">Parcel an adorable "curiosity" store in Montclair, NJ. Nancy the owner is sweet and everything in there is placed delicately and perfect in a little nook or cranny. Pure "Eye Candy" at every turn. I bought some adorable items and would still be there shopping but had to pay my bills also and of course save some things for other wonderful shoppers....Mizz Bee! lol Parcel / Nancy has designed fabulous items for EK Success' Jolee line. It is vintage inspired and perfect for altered art scrapbooking and anything else you can think of.

Please visit Beverly from "How Sweet the Sound" our wonderful Pink Saturday Hostess to visit more posts....I am heading there now! xoxox

Tussie Mussie Swap

I was in a Tussie Mussie" Swap that was Hosted by Linda from A Swap for all Seasons. My Swap partner was Jenny from The Red Bullitain Board. Jenny is the sweetest, it was so wonderful getting to know her. She made the cutest &;quot;Tussie Mussie" and filled my box with so many cute treasures, vintage butterfly earings, little babbles, stickers galare, note pads, box and a few more cuties. She collects flying pigs and now I seem to keep seeing them all in a Pier One Ad! Thanks so much Jenny for all my goodies and Linda for Hosting such a fun swap!

Pink Saturday - Jenny and Aaron Classes

Happy Pink Saturday! Make sure you visit Beverly from How Sweet the Sound and see more fun "PINK" posts! I am still playing catch up with work and finishing up some swaps and unfinished projects and dealing with everyday life. Not complaining I am blessed. I have been so excited to do this Pink Saturday post to gush about Jenny and Aaron form Everyday is a Holiday Blog. I had seen Jenny and Aaron's work and had a few of their pieces but had never had the opportunity to take any classes with them until Art Opera and signed up for both classes. They brought balloons and decor both days PINK! Get out! The projects were so stinking cute and their personalities and love of art and what they do is intoxicating. We had so much fun in their classes and learned so much and thought wow we can make this out of that? Go figure... Jenny and Aaron are selling some extra kits and some other wonderful items on their blog, you must go see. Also they are going to be teachers at Art is You in Connecticut. Visit the site, they have 2 great classes and also check out the other talented teachers that will be there. Hope you all have some pink in your lives. xoxoxo

Pink Saturday Art Opera Style

I missed all of you last Pink Saturday when I was away in Red Bank NJ for Art Opera. I could not wait for Beverly of How Sweet the Sound to send the email. As I sat in Art Opera events my Pink Brain was working over-time. Lisa Kettell Of Fairie Enchantment was the most Magical Sugary Hostess and all of her teachers were wonderful and talented. There is a "Pink" Teacher I wanted to give her own special blog post too and I am sure you will love that next week!

Anne Denise Anderson of Whim and Fancy Design is a fabulous artist crepe paper incredible super talented teacher and now friend. She made this Marie Antoinette Doll at Vendor Fare for the make n take (1 of them). I just was the assistant whom held hot glue in place and smiled as she created this masterpiece. Yes the bottom is a bell..she is amazing! I was wondering does this woman from Texas ever sleep or is her Texas Size brain always churning? If you have never taken a class with her you definitely must it is such a treat. She will Be teaching at Paper Cowgirl in Texas, go look at the fabulous creations and teachers that will be there. I took other classes with her will post definitely during the week.

I had Holly Stinnett from Holly Loves Art create this beautiful Apron for Lisa Kettell from Faire Enchantment who was our Art Opera Magical Hostess.

I had M&M's made with "Frozen Charlotte Heads" and "Art Opera". The cute Gumball Containers were purchased from Heather at Speckled Egg.

Mermaid holding cotton candy I made to decorate my treat bags.

Cupcake Soaps I put in the Goodie Bags for some teachers and friends. The bottom is a bath fizz and top is actual soap. Of course I had to find Pink Cupcake Boxes and filled with pink tulle to decorate.

Art Opera Wednesday - Day 1

Art Opera was a great event...Can't wait for next year. I wanted to post some pictures will do so a little at a time. So much to tell. Oyster Point in Red Bank is a nice Hotel with fabulous views. The food was so great. There were issues with the hotel as Lisa cleared it up a group of wonderful women pitched together and started setting up. I was having a blast seeing the room transform into a sugary wonderland. There were so many amazing sponsors Beacon, Ranger, DMC, Sizzix, Making Memories to mention a few. There are too many pictures this first post ao I will keep the reading short. It was so great meeting new friends and taking classes with such talented teachers. Can't wait till next year.
