I never got the chance to blog yesterday… We went to San Diego in the morning and didn’t come back to the hotel until 11 PM. The sun was shining and it was really warm outside. We headed for the Cabrillo National Monument and arrived around lunchtime. It was so nice to just have a coffee and some cakes (yes, there’s a lot of fika when Marie is around) in the sun.
We just sat there and enjoyed the beautiful views and enjoyed the sun. After all hard work we’ve done the last months it felt like we really deserved it.
It was nice to just sit by the water and soak it all in.
Marie is very camera shy, but I caught her off guard.
In the afternoon we headed for an outlet to do some shopping. Naturally we passed a Michaels store and went in to get some ribbon for our sample books. We didn’t stay long, but long enough to get caught in the heavy traffic. Sigh. We knew it, but forgot about it. We arrived at the outlet, tired as can be but still managed to get more shopping bags then we could carry. I don’t know what it is, but something strange happens to you when you smell the outlet air. We went back to the hotel and had a very late dinner before heading for bed.
Finally. CHA. I don’t know for how long I’ve dreamed about going there. And when the day finally arrived. Hmm. We got stuck in my room, Marie fixing up the sample books. Me taking care of some Maja work online. We thought we were going to be first in line, but didn’t get there until 11.30.
We couldn’t believe it. After all hard work we’ve done to put together our vintage outfits we had to wear bright pink AND red badges. And we got the most hideous green bag. That made me SOOO depressed. It didn’t go too well with my valances and lace. You can’t see much of them on the photo though.
Actually. The tunic is Marie’s. The Life In The Countryside collection was partly influenced by it. She wore the same model but in lilac. One of the Fika papers was influenced by her tunic. So we were very Maja today. But people turned their heads and talked about our clothes so I guess we must have done something right.
And then finally… the tradeshow. It was so much fun walking around, soaking it all in. We met some really nice people and had a really nice day…
Well. Time for bed.
