Live, Love, Junk Retreat: Register Today!

20130729-091219.jpg

The Live, Love, Junk Retreat is rapidly approaching… and we would love you to join us!

Here is a glimpse of my blog post from last year that shows you a fantastic glimpse of the shopping and creativity of the vendors.

The Live, Love, Junk Retreat is centered around the Junk Bonanza held semiannually in Central Minnesota. The vintage junk shopping is an incredible experience and the event is filled with dynamic vintage finds and cool creations using junk.

The retreat includes your early bird ticket to shop the event (a must to beat the massive crowds and get first dibs on the best finds.) You will connect, giggle and enjoy the camaraderie of other junking queens, enjoy a Meet and Greet Party, Shuttle to and from the Junk Bonanza, A Funtastic BBQ, and a Restyle Workshop (I have some fun projects for the workshop! Hope you can join us!!)

Your registration also includes a Live, Love, Junk Market Bag with exclusive offers and discounts for the Retreat attendees from the Junk Bonanza attendees. Also enjoy a Friday evening Farewell Round Up Dinner and Bingo!

I am looking forward sharing this experience with all of you!

Remember, Save $20.00 by registering by August 1!!

It was a fabulous Friday. Other than a meeting with my artist friends in the morning being cancelled, my day was delightful.

I worked around home in the morning, ran to an Antique shop to prep for my video for Live Love Junk...

20120421-062754.jpg

I forgot to take photos of my purchases, but you will see them when the video is complete!

20120421-063004.jpg

I bought most of my junk from this bin…
It charges me up to work on a new project and I can’t wait to share it with you!

On my way to an appointment, my friend Cindy called with news that this sweet lady who sold me some vintage costume jewelry was in town. I got to meet her and pick up a large bag of jewelry.

20120421-063525.jpg

For me, it is like Christmas morning to go through a bag of jewelry like this! I am still giddy!

And finished the evening on a date with my husband and friends. It has been months since we have had a night together!

Happy Saturday! I need to get to work! Have a fun filled day! 馃檪 Kris

Where O’ Where Have I Been???

The last few days have spiralled away so quickly.聽 Tomorrow is the big day. I am starting to feel light-headed because I can’t seem to breathe deeply.聽 I can’t wait to tell you about it tomorrow. Last night I drafted a post telling you all about it. I am going to be gone all day tomorrow Holiday Shopping, so I thought I would draft a post telling you about my exciting news and then as soon as I find out the results, I can share it with you remotely! I LOVE technology!

So in the meantime, where O where have I been…

For the past two nights, I 聽inventoried, labeled, priced and described my聽jewelry on a spread sheet so Tom can deliver my inventory to the ‘Tis The Season Upscale Boutique in Chaska, MN.聽 (He is amazing, isn’t he?) The details are:

‘Tis The Season Holiday Boutique is open the first two weekends of December:聽
Friday, December 3rd 5pm – 8pm
Saturday, December 4th 9am – 5pm
Sunday, December 5th 11am – 5pm
Saturday, December 11th 9am – 5pm
Sunday, December 12th 11am – 5pm

Here is a little Eye Candy!

This is a copper pendant that I created and etched myself. It was a lot of fun, but kind of piddly work for my taste… It was something I wanted to learn for a long time and now that I know, I think I will leave it up to the experts!

My Secret is Happiness necklace pictured above. I love the copper effect on the funky flower… I am in love with blues and coppers. Have you noticed that?

What??? More copper – N- Blue??? I know, huge surprise, right.

Well, make sure you check back tomorrow! Looking forward to spilling the beans!

Have an amazing day!

Kris
