True Love At The Black Swan Bazaar

Last week, a friend called us and asked if we would be OK with him proposing marriage to his true love in our shop.  The “friend” was Brandon Eady, one of our favorite people (and our social media guru) and his true love is Mckara Calhoon, who started out as one of our favorite customers and became another one of our favorite people.  As you can imagine, our response to Brandon’s request was an emphatic “yes” and then we proceeded to begin freaking out as Saturday drew closer.  Yvonne reached out to our good friend and candy maker extraordinaire Leah @ Got Candy who provided her amazing chocolate covered strawberries.  Add to that a batch of Miss Yvonne’s special Mimosas, and you have the makings of a grand morning.  Rather than do a bunch of typing, I will let the pictures speak for themselves.  Brandon, thank you for allowing us to be a part of this special moment.

On Monday, July 30, we had our first Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Work Shop.  This was a half day class where we taught five finishes to the six attendees, who are all very creative and fun to work with.  What made it a really special class was that Lori Rombold (one of our mentors at Robyn Story Designs) stopped in and helped us with the work shop.  Our thanks also go out to Claudia Iris for allowing us to use her studio at Creative Journies (see pix below) to conduct the work shop.
