Do you have a bucket list? Did anyone really call it a bucket list before the concept was introduced on the big screen? I know I never did. But now….I have one and it involves traveling to several amazing destinations across the world. I am not going to lie…Italy is on my list. And…lucky for me I get to go there in 2014. In fact, I get to travel to Bellagio, Italy (which is close to Milan..) for a creative retreat next May. This retreat will be the last official “teaching event” I will be saying “yes too” and I am glad it is going to be held at such an amazing location with a smaller more intimate group of women. As much as I love sharing my ideas, concepts, and products with the world it just isn’t feasible for me to be away from home. According to Southwest Airlines I have taken 12 trips this year and that doesn’t even include flights on other airlines. I am averaging 1-2 trips a month and it has greatly affected my life / work balance.
So..this trip to Italy will be something to cherish. Not only for myself but for those I will meet in the classroom and at the event. Laura (the event organizer) has always been an avid fan of our products and she is an amazing crafter and designer; she also looks amazingly “fashionable” every time I see her! That girl knows how to put together an outfit! When she invited me to teach next year I couldn’t say no and I will be looking forward to spoiling every attendee with lots of Pink Paislee goodies! The event has SOLD OUT – so if you are going I can’t wait to meet you there! We have some new & exclusive new products coming in 2014 that I can’t wait to bring to this event. It is going to be worth every second!
The countdown has begun and if all goes well I will accidentally run into George Clooney while I am there. That would be like crossing 2 things off my bucket list at the same time… ;-)
