Southern Belle's Date

Hello Everyone!
Did you think I have forgotten all about
the Georgia Bloggers?
"NEVER!"

Here are NEWEST plans for the upcoming:
Southern Belle's Date!

1: We are meeting for sure on
April 10th
at
Peckers Resturant in
Hoschton, Ga at 11:00AM
(Please see former post for directions and meeting place or email me for information.)
2: Please bring a gift to exchange.
(This can be hand made or boughten.)
3: There will be door prizes galore!

4: We will have one or maybe two workshops for you to attend.

5: We would like for you to make and
bring your very own name tag.
(Your name tag should "reflect your personality" or blog.
We would like that name tag to contain your name and the name of your blog written clearly for everyone to see at a glance.)
6: I would love to be able to know approximately how many are planning to come.  IF you KNOW you can or can not come. 
Please RSVP and I will try to keep track...lol
7: Bring yourself, your name tag, and a small gift to exchange.

8. Please post about this event! 
Let's see how many we can get to meet us.
9.  Come expecting to make new friends!

(I will try to get a banner and link set up so
you can grab the button about the event.)
If I have missed anyones email address it is NOT intentional or repeated the email twice/three times, please excuse me.

I will keep you informed as the plans come together.
It is just around the corner!
We hope to see you there!
Everyone is welcome!
Even if you do not live in Georgia,
please try to join us.
Thank you for your interest in meeting fellow bloggers.


MORE NEWS!!!
Southern Belle's Retreat...

Dawn may teach a mini-class on April 10th for us!!
(We MAY be sharing a couple of workshops.)
We are getting so very excited about meeting everyone!
I am working on my "name tag".
(Hint, hint...lol)
Mine is going to be a heart for love,.... a rose in 3D for my love of pinks and of roses,... an old post card for a name.... to show my love of Victorian with a 3D stamp for my love of details then I will end it with beads for my passion....
it is a work in progress.
Have you started on yours yet?
(A PRIZE will be given to the
most orginal and creative
name tag.)
I have some door prizes to bring!

Dawn (The Feathered Nest)and Yvette (The Charm House)
will be donating something too!
Plus I am making a special piece of
jewelry for my
"gift exchange".
(Your gift exchange gifts do not have to be anything

extravagant or expensive,

just something from your heart.)
I am having to do things ahead of time as I am taking my other Grand daughters to the beach for the first week of spring break

BUT

I will be back just in time!

(It seems it is always so busy all at the same time.)


I will look forward to seeing you all real soon...

I am having problems with getting the correct email addresses for everyone so please send me your correct addresses so I can keep everyone updated.

Don't forget to post about this event for all
Southern Belles'!!!

Thank you so much for participating!

Hi sweet girl, please forgive me...I'm not much of a phone caller, time seems to slip away and I STILL haven't talked to you! I'm heading to the antique mall today but would love for you to call me when it's good for you!!! hugs and love, Dawn

Sharon just had to pop over and let you know my Easter basket arrived today with all the goodies! Oh I can't tell you how much fun it was to open the box and find all the little treasures!!You thought of everything!

I had to meet the mailman out at the mailvan as I hadn't gotten around to shoveling the walkway of all the snow that still continues to fall. It was such a sweet breath of fresh spring air receiving your pretty box on such a wintery snowy day here in Colorado!

I mailed your box out today- they said it should arrive by Monday- let's see how good they are!

Thank you, thank you again for such a fun swap! I got my little feather tree out to display my pretties on and it looks adorable! Even made bows out of the cute ribbon you decorated the outside of the package with and used them on the tree.

I love the sweet note- I thought it was an envelope - then when I lifted the sticker it was the note itself! How very clever!!

Well I could go on and on - but will do that when I do up a little ditty for my blog.I love everything and will always think of you when I see my Easter goodies!

Sharon I am wondering if you have an etsy shop or a link to your jewelry. I am doing an entry about my sweet basket swap from you and wanted to include a link about your jewelry if there was one. I am getting it ready for the Pink Saturday entry.

thanks again for everything!
