Last year’s Spellbound Event was truly enchanting in every way. Staying true to it’s meaning, Spellbound was a magical three days filled with laughter, friendship and the creation of beautiful art. We are so excited to share with you some of the memories from our amazing weekend!
We set the stage for our Spellbound weekend by coming together at the lovely, historic Langham Huntington Hotel in spectacular Pasadena, California.
We gathered together at the hotel for the first time on Thursday night, at the glamorous Welcome Dinner. Enveloped in the beauty of the Georgian Ballroom, there was no other way to feel about the beginning of our weekend than enchanted.
We told stories and laughed. We laughed a lot.
On Friday, when it was time to begin working on the gorgeous projects that our instructors offered, the fun truly began. In classroom after classroom around the hotel, there were ribbons and beads and vintage photographs. Crepe paper and velvet, rhinestones and buttons. And glitter. The spirit of creativity was palpable, and the smiles were some of the biggest we have ever seen!
We spent time with friends, both old and new, from down the road and from half-way across the world.
And we ate. We ate like queens. We laughed and we bonded and we created and we indulged in some of the best food we’ve ever had.
Friday evening was time for the unbelievable Dreamland Mercantile. With over 30 vendors displaying their wares, it was definitely a delight for the senses!
Spellbinders Paper Arts, DEMDACO, May Arts, Riley Blake Designs, and DecoArt for their generous donations to the Up All Night Craft Party
We stayed up all night. After Saturday’s class schedule, a large and energetic group decided to keep the creative juices flowing. Snacking on good old fashioned comfort food (hello…a CUPCAKE bar!!) and spending time playing with materials from some of the leading manufacturers in the craft industry, the bell tolled midnight way before any of us were ready to leave the ball!
As you can see, we had more fun than we could have ever imagined. Getting to make art is good for the soul. Making art while surrounded by over 100 of your best friends is breathtakingly wonderful.
And, this is not the end of the story. We are beyond thrilled to be able to do it all again this year! Plans are coming together as we speak, and this year promises to be even more amazing! We really hope you will join us for Spellbound 2. November 7-10th, 2013.
