Yeehaw, Cowgirls!

Good morning!

Have you heard?? The 3rd annual Paper Cowgirl Art Retreat is coming! I've wanted to go to this ever since Cindy and Tina started hosting them. Fabulous project classes, a meet and greet, shopping in downtown Waxahachie, and a vendor show.
Doin' it all up Texas style!

Paper Cowgirl Art Retreat
Waxahachie, Texas
June 24-26, 2010
(details will be posted on the Paper Cowgirl site sometime on Monday, 3/8)

This year will be the biggest yet. There will be TWELVE classes to choose from during the retreat! I love the way the schedule is set up. You choose the classes you want to take on the schedule and you sign up and pay for those classes. You could take one, or six, or even buy all twelve kits. Your schedule is up to you! And don't worry, a lot of the teachers will have extra kits available for purchase if you can't get them all scheduled.

How do I know all of this? Well, I am completely honored to be one of the twelve teachers. :)
You know I love old things, love holidays, I'm combining the two for a beautiful Fourth of July banner class! Here is a photo of the project we'll be creating:

Isn't it fun? I love the bright and bold mixed with vintage. Here is the class description:
Waving flags, popping fireworks, soldiers in uniform, yummy treats...all fond reminders of a traditional fourth of July celebration! In this class we'll create an old-fashioned patriotic banner, full of festive sparkle and that perfect touch of vintage. We'll play with chunky glitter, gorgeous papers and fabric, antique postcard prints, crepe paper, ribbons and lace, and learn several new techniques as we create. Every heart rings true for the red, white and blue with this banner in your home!

Paper Cowgirl is the baby of Cindy and Tina. Last year sweet Tina was diagnosed with cancer and she passed away in January of this year. (I hate cancer.) Cindy decided to carry on the Paper Cowgirl tradition, as they had already begun preparations for this year's event. I think Tina would be so proud.

Please check out the Paper Cowgirl blog for all of the details on classes and registration. There are some amazing teachers and projects this year! Oh...and I'm also going to be a vendor on Vendor Night. :)

Let me know if you'll be there.
I cant wait. Yeehaw!
