Happy Belated Thanksgiving everyone! Somehow in the all of the family hubbub I never manage to post a "Happy Holiday" type message before the actual holiday. At first I felt bad about that, but now I am considering it a tradition. If i get a "happy holiday" message out there anytime during the weekend surrounding the holiday... well, in my mind it still counts :-)... so Happy Thanksgiving!!
I am throwing the last things in my new luggage and going off on a little trip. Well actually I am weighing every last scarf and every last sock on my special shipping scale to see what I can shove in there and be exactly at 49.99 without hitting the magic number of 50 lbs.! Its become quite an art in this house.
I once again get the privilege of going to teach for MODA in Madrid and then on to Paris to adventure for a few days. I know, I know what's a girl to to with such a difficult assignment? This time my aunt Wanda is meeting me for a few days of Paris fun and I can't wait to shop and walk around that gorgeous city. Even though I have to tell you that the weather forecast is for both rain AND snow during the few days that I am there so it will be a very wet adventure, but an adventure nonetheless....
My fun new carryon bag
is accompanying me on my travels...
and a new friend is joining us...
She just got finished last night and she is making me a bit giddy. In fact I am wanting to keep her... but I won't. She is for my traveling companion
who I am pretty sure has already gotten on her flight so she is in no danger of seeing this post. She told me this was her favorite fabricin my new collection, Patisserie
, and I am hoping she enjoys this little gal as much as I enjoyed making her. I am so excited to hang out with her for a bit [my friend, not the bag :-)]... watch out Madrid, here we come.
Oh, and I forgot to share a fun thing I got to do in Portland the week before Thanksgiving. Here is the link
that the news station sent over. It was a lot less nerve wracking than I had anticipated and it went by so much faster than I thought it would. Thanks for watching. If you are interested in those slippers, here
Talk to you soon. If I am lucky, from Madrid or Paris :-)!!
