it's a charm party!


Announcing the much-anticipated Valentine Charm Bracelet Party, hosted by Saucy and Sassy!

Sunday, February 1st 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. David's Restaurant on Circle Drive (next to Rona)

It's just like the Christmas charm bracelet party we had in November... each participant brings (handmade or store-bought) charms to swap and we each assemble smashing seasonal bracelets after we share and ooooh and ahhh over everyone's creations.

We will be limiting participants to twelve so including Sassy and myself there will be ten spots up for grabs.

The cost will be $25.00 per person, it includes your choice of lunch and unlimited soda, coffee or tea (lunch menu will be determined later), your basic charm bracelet and some "filler" charms. We had to slightly increase the cost to cover the upgraded bracelet closures and the filler charms for this round.

What to bring: your charm contribution (12 identical charms in a Valentine theme), a pair of crafting pliers, jump rings or split rings for attaching your charms (it's nice if your rings are on your charms already).


If you would like to join us, please leave a comment here on this post! You need to leave a link back to your blog or your email address and I will contact the first ten participants when I return from Jamaica!

If there are already ten names, go ahead and add yours, we will start a wait list in case someone changes their mind or can't make it after all. Please don't bring your money until we contact you... I don't want a whole bunch of cash sitting in the mailbox while I'm out of town! Plus, Sassy and McDreamy are in Vegas right now. We'll just have to sort this all out when we get back but we wanted to give you the heads-up!

Yes, we leave tomorrow for Jamaica. We will return on January 26th. The Fan is staying here with Loopy... it should be a fun girl's week and I'm very sorry to be missing out on the fun. I loaded the Apple TV with credit on iTunes so they can download movies. I laid in their essential supplies: Coke and Dr. Pepper, I baked a banana bread and I made sure that Loopy was all set with her makeup...

... because yes, Dear Reader, I help Loopy with her hair and makeup every day. She practiced over the Christmas break doing it on her own but I know she prefers it when I help her out. And if I must confess, I lurrve doing it for her and we have lots of fun in the mornings getting ready for our day together. We share a vanity space and we share some of the makeup... while I'm into Smurfette makeup, I don't wear it myself.

It's time to cut the makeup apron strings, I know. Ten days of doing it by herself... will she still want her personal stylist when I arrive home?

Can you tell I'm excited?

Have a fantastic trip!

Oliver Rain said...

Have a FABULOUS time in Jamaica. I for a crazy moment contemplated trying to make it to Saskatoon to the charm party. It was a crazy thought, and I don't think I could pull it off, but it's fun thinking about it.

I'm sure your girls will have a great time at home. I can't wait to start doing makeup with Lizzie.

Just say Julie said...

Can we offer this charm party as a sattelite class?

Enjoy Jamaica... so jealous as I sift through exams and grade essays!

Leica said...

Helena said...

I wish I lived in Canada! Would have loved to come.

Jerri-Lea said...

I'm in! And if Loopy doesn't want a makeup artist, I do!!
Have a great time ~ try to! Wear lots of sunscreen.

Maija said...

I'd join you for the bracelet if you weren't so darn far away!
Have a blast in Jamaica!

Laura said...

Have a great trip! I'll be wishing I lived closer so I could participate in the charm party. I'll also be wishing I was in warmer weather!

Linda Crispell said...

I can't imagine a more perfect time to go to a warm weather destination.
As the proud owner of one of your charm bracelets, I truly wish I could join you to see how it's done.
Your Pal,
Linda
P.S. Have a safe flight.

Sheryl said...

Hi Saucy, I have been following your blog for a while and fell in love with the charm bracelets you made at Christmas. I would love to come to your Valentines Charm Party. I have never made any jewelery but I would love to start(I have a thing for bracelets). I have my Mom's charm bracelet that she started back in the 70's and wear it often but I would love to make one for myself.
Thanks.

Enjoy your trip!

I contemplated a trip to Tune-town but winter weather is unpredictable so I think I'll have to pass this round too. Have you thought of organizing a summer-themed charm bracelet? I could make that one! Hee hee!

If a spot is still available, count me in. I attempted to make a Christmas one for my daughter after seeing the fabulous party pics on Sassy's blog. It turned out quite nice but would love to learn from the experts.

Singing out loud...it's your party and I'll cry if I want to...
I'm so sad... I can't blaze a trail to your party. If you ever decide to take it on tour, let me know.
Luckily, because of your sweet generosity I'll be able to create my own *CHARMING* Saucy bracelet! I do LURRVE the minis. I've purchased some cuties for a summer themed bracelet. A few of my favs I've received (so far), are a... ice cream cone, parfait, cream puff, jam, waffles,hamburger,etc. I'll post it when I've finish.
Have great fun in the sun!

Sweet Wishes,
Sara

I would really love to create bracelets with you all, but alas, Saskatchawan is just a tad to far from the Big Smoke!! (I'm near Toronto, in case no one knows what the big smoke is! -- at least I think that's what they call us...or is it hogtown? Oh well, I digress)....I hope it's a fun time.

And by the way Saucy, you being on vacation has made me realize how seriously addicted I have become to your blog.....everyday I check it, and feel sad when I remember you are on vacation ..what is happening....am I a blog stalker?????? If I lived near you I would so make you become one of my BFF's.
