obsession cleverly disguised as a hobby...

more peeks into the bohemian's retreat weekend: a slice view of the quilters' room. or. how to cram 40 crafty women into one room... (there were some paper scrappers in there, too...) the bohemian is NOT a quilter...she prefers her papers. BUT! she drools over the quilting material!!! look at this fabulous, crazy material!!! the bohemian got this glazed look in her eyes... here are the cards the bohemian taught her class to make. they learned to emboss, use ribbon to embellish, use security envelopes' insides (hot pink cards) and basic stamping. the bohemian had a blast teaching this class.... a pink layout the bohemian created. the right-hand side was waiting for this quote: "What the heart gives away is never lost. It is kept in the hearts of others." -Robin St. John another pink layout... the bird page's quote is: "Death twitches my ear. 'Live', he says, 'I am coming.'" -Virgil the girl with the pink flower got this quote added: "If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere." -Vincent Van Gogh the yellow girl page now says this: "To love and be loved is like being warmed by the sun from both sides."(not sure of author) the lovely "yellow" bear doesn't have a quote yet. any suggestions? the curious little girl's quote says: "The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity." -dorothy parker the lovely Victorian lady's quote says: "Let us savor the fleeting delights of our most beautiful days." -Alphonse de Lamartine and an ORANGE page... the bohemian LOVES the color orange so much!!! she added the quote: "A man's life is dyed the color of his imagination" (also unsure of author) in the orange oval around the sitting girl...the bohemian and her roommate's messy space... but they got so much accomplished! and all of it was fun, fun, fun!!! hope you have an extremely fun time CREATING today! see you tomorrow for more retreat fun...(hint: costumes! tee hee!)
