come play september: vintage bits & pieces

Come Play with us!
September 11 & 12, 2010

Saturday join us for an afternoon of vintage, crafty fun
& then Sunday an entire day filled with treasure hunting
at the most wonderful 'Coburg Antique Fair'!

A vintage weekend of your dreams...

(my fonts & point sizes are totally wonked out... so sorry!)

Session One:
A Charmed Life Bracelet
with Michelle Geller

Using basic jewelry-making techniques, you will create a unique,
fun and personalized charm bracelet full of vintage items and found
objects. This bracelet is sure to be a conversation starter and will
be an attention getter every time you move your wrist and it makes
that glorious jingly jangly noise!

You will learn basic wire wrapping techniques as well as a few
tips and ideas to turn random, found objects into perfect charms.

The class kit is packed with everything you will
need to make your charm bracelet:
A chain, clasp, jump rings, headpins, vintage charms,
beads, and a collection of vintage and otherwise found objects
pre-punched and ready to be turned in to charms!
(OMgoodness! this is going to be such a great class!)

when you sign up for the class i will send you
a list of supplies
that you will need to bring (nothing too crazy :)

An add on kit with charms will be available to purchase.
It includes a vintage small skeleton key, license fob,
and a soldered domino for $12.

Space is limited to 12

Session Two:

Me & My Shadow Box with Jill

Inspired by our amazing friend, Ali,
Jill has designed a sweet shadow box
filled with little treasures & family memories...
Jill will provide a kit filled with gorgeous papers,
buttons, a gorgeous key
a vintage anagram letter representative of your last name
& other wonderful items...
seriously beautiful!

You will need to bring your own printers tray or shadow box–
is doesn’t matter how many slots or how big –

Then on Sunday you’ll get to hunt for other little items
that represent your family to put in other pockets of your shadow box.

(i loooove finding those cute little sweeties!)

Space is limited to 12

Grace us with your presence all afternoon & evening
as you stay for both sessions:

Register in the upper right hand corner...

The Creative Boutique will be open, too!
Always filled with awesome finds
& we will also be having a great sale
on scrapbooking supplies
(you don't want to miss this!)

Sunday will be our 3rd annual
field trip to the Coburg Antique Fair
& we are so excited to treasure hunt with you!

We will meet at our usual crazy vintage shopper time of 5am
with our coffee & flashlights :)

This is always such a fun bonding experience...
(5am shopping...how can you not bond?)

We hope you'll round up a friend
& come play with us...
(or come alone & make some friends!)
we always love being inspired
& creating with you!

let me know if you have any questions

have a fabulous day!

saturday night sleep over!
thinking about going on the coburg field trip but
not sure if you can drag yourself out
of your warm bed that early sunday morning?
let us do it for you!
spend the night at jill's house
& we will all rise & shine together!
we will get ready,
get coffee,
get on the road
& get excited about what we will find!
there are a limited number of beds & then
we will start blowing up air mattresses...
so fun & sleepover-y!
& what a perfect way to make it a
full girlie, creative, weekend just for you!
(add $10 to sleep over)
