Winter Wonderland

SONY DSC
There is no better way to start the Christmas Season than to go to an Art Event created by the AMAZING Kim Caldwell of Artistic Bliss!  An Art Event completely created around everything Christmas!  No detail was missed!  Above you see the Candy Bar that kept us all “HIGH” the whole weekend.  Below… the magic of the room where it all took place.

Kim (& her Elves) made all the table decor, gifts & the chair covers!  She never misses a detail!

The sparkly box full of ribbons & lace, a silver tray, white chocolate snow flake all so pretty.  The sweet snow globe with the Wonderland Mascot smiling through the snow…

Beautiful table centerpieces.  Five in all.  Vickie & I were the first to ask Kim if we could buy them after the event.  Being the sweet, giving, sharing person she is YES was the answer the next day.  Poor thing didn’t even get to keep one due to a misunderstanding.  I almost felt bad but, loved them so.  And darn it we were first!( Hee Hee).  The bad news is that my centerpiece had to stay at Vickie’s house (which she says absolutely makes her dinning room table sparkle) as things would never have made it with American Airlines “kid glove" service (YEAH RIGHT)!  But, Ms Vickie that will be coming home with me this summer when I’m out there in my van!!!!!
Candy Bar
Do you have visions of sugar plums dancing in your head?  I did!!! 
Well, as of today the packages are wrapped.  The groceries stored away for the weekend through Christmas Day.  Hoping to not see the grocery store again (until after Christmas) as it’s a crazy place.  Are you finished?  Are you ready?  Hope you’ll come back to see some of the AMAZING creations for some of the swaps from our Winter Wonderland! 
HUGS!  Charlene

So very typical of Kim.... making extraordinary out of something so mundane as a conference room. She sure makes her company feel good, doesn't she? And how thoughtful of you to share this with someone who has never been. I know she was bowled over! My favorite shots are the tables with their place settings. I could never get the image that I wanted but you did so beautifully!! Can't wait to see you in this coming year! Have a joyful, merry Christmas!!
