Artistic Affaire L’Automne


Hello friends! Im back from a FANTASTIC weekend in Southern, CA.  I had the wonderful opportunity of attending Kim Caldwell's Artistic Affaire L'Automne. What an EVENT!!!! I've heard sooo many amazing things about Kim's past events, that I was giddy with excitement to finally attend one.

This is my gorgeous roomie Miss Jessi. We had the BEST time together! 


The studio Kim rented was amazing space. She had it decorated in beautiful fall colors.  




Friday evening was the Vendor night market soiree. Oh my heavens it was the best shopping ever! Tons of delightful goodies and gorgeous handmade creations!!!!


My sweet sweet friend Sherry is in the photo. Not only is she a wonderful friend, but she's an excellent travel & shopping companion. We sat next to each other at the workshop and had tons of fun together!

One of the many exciting things about this trip and attending this event was meeting sooo many new and lovely faces! I was blown away by all the sweet ladies I was introduced to, and ALL are so extremely talented!!!!

Meeting this beautiful gal was definitely a highlight of my trip! Christine Rose Elle aka Dollybelle.


Look at her GORGEOUS spread of the most beautiful handmade designs.


 Im thrilled that Christine will be teaching at my upcomming April workshop event Petticoats & Parasols Plantation Art Event. Sign up's are under way right now!!!

Loooove her necklaces! So unique and one of a kind!


Another sweetheart of a friend that I've been DYING to meet is Holly  of Holly Loves Art. Oh she is too cute for words! Her aprons are TDF!!! 


 I could not resist shopping the uber sweet and lovely Amy Powers "Sugarville" table. I snatched up two of her miniatures. EEEK! I just LOVE her work!!!




Im a HUGE of Jamie Simply Me Art. I own several of her pieces and it was wonderful finally getting the chance to meet her in person. Look at this STUNNING spread of gorgeous sparkly jewelry. YUM!!!!


Another real special "treat" was getting to see my homegirl Analise. 


Saturday was the workshop event. The studio was lively and full of creative inspiration!!!


The lovely hostess herself.


Super talented Lisa Kettell teaching a dragonfly shadowbox class. 


This is a table of the dragonfly dolls we made. Sooo cute!!!  



 This is the shadowbox I made in Lisa's class.  



Some fun random shots with the girls. 

Holly, Christine, Jenn, and Sis Jessi.



Christine is such a beautiful person inside & out!!!



There are so many ladies I had the pleasure of meeting that I wish I had photos of to share with you.  I was SO happy to see and visit with Maija with whom just cracks me up and had me in stitches the whole time. I love her zestful personality!!! The lovely Danielle Muller also attended and was Maija's roomate. I love Danielle's work. I took a quick photo of one of her projects. Sooo sweet!


This is a wall the floral wall hanging I made in Julie Haymakers class. Julie is such an amazing instructor.



Im really thrilled with how my collage turned out. It will look lovely in my ivory living room.

The last class of the day was romantic wristlets taught by Ruth Rae. Im very challenged by sewing, but I gave it my best and Im actully pretty happy with how my wristlet turned out.  




The last day of our wonderful weekend Kim planned a reception in Long Beach at the shop Vintage Emporium.



WOW! The shop was beautifully decorated inside. So welcoming, inviting, and cozy. Vintage Treasures everywhere you turn!



A yummy spread of delicious finger foods and sweets!



How cute are these cupcake toppers! DELISH!


Sweet & pretty Holly. :) 


This last photo is of me & Lisa Kettell with whom I worship creatively. I've been a HUGE fan of hers for many years, and she truly has the magical fairytale mind of any artist I know. I've been so honored to have been featured in her book Altered Art Circus, and it was a REAL joy having participated in her shadowbox class.


 I can't thank Kim enough for hosting such an INCREDIBLE artistic event. She goes out of her way and doesn't spare a detail! It's everything I imagined! BRAVO Miss Kim for hosting an EXTRAORDINARY artistic event! Wonderful memories have been made. 😉

Hugs & Kisses XOXO,

P.S. Typepad has been a PAIN today. Not sure if many of your other typepad bloggers have had issues or not. Im also sorry if you've had a hard time leaving a comment on my blog. I've reported some compliants so hopefully this is just temporary. 😉

OH yay! Perfect timing… I popped over to see if you had posted yet and here it is!
Oh Jenn, what can I say? It was such a delight to finally meet you in person after all this time. And what a bonus to share the same table and spend 12 straight hours together! All of your projects turned out so beautiful. Your shadow box and doll from Lisa’s class are just TDF. And your felt collage turned out just gorgeous… I can’t believe how elegant and YOU it turned out to be! And lastly, your cuff from Ruth’s class is so darling. I just love it!
I’m so happy that you were able to come to L.A. and even happier that you had such a good time.
Lots of love,

Welcome Home Jenn 🙂
This event looks spectacular! Such a warm and inviting space! The projects you created are so beautiful. A adore the floral collage! And the shadowbox is so cute 🙂 You look darling as always, love the lacy blouse paired with jeans 🙂 I am so glad you had a wonderful time!!!

Hi, Jennifer!
The photos taken during your CA trip are truly amazing, which translated, to me, simply means that you also had a truly amazing time. Good for you! My favorite photo is the Victorian lady surrounded by fall’s exploding color of leaves. Is it a poster?
Also, received my copy of Romantic Country and gasped when I saw your beautiful home featured in this mag. In this day and age of super superlatives, your home photographs super-bly! Ms. Fifi O did an outstanding job of staging, but then again, look at the material she had to work with!
Best wishes,
Christine Karie
P.S. I’m new at this blogging thing, so did I do O.K.? (sigh)
