Let's go fly a kite!

Wow, up and at ‘em bright and early today!  We started the day off right with our sweet innocent little Patsy Breakout event, Go Fly a Kite.  The Age of Innocence was in full effect at this breakout breakfast, since no one does innocence better than Patsy!  As we entered the room, we saw colorful kites hanging from the ceiling , and Team Tonner was dressed in adorable rainbow propeller hats and cute T Shirts.  It was like being at recess in kindergarten!

Robert dropped some serious knowledge on us this morning too, as he gave us the Complete History of Patsy and 100 years of Effanbee.  It was fascinating to learn all about her origins and it’s wonderful that after all these years, people still fall in love with and collect Patsy.  AND we had a special guest:  Aunt Patsy herself.  :D

Had to beat feet from the event to Marcia Friend’s Jewelry Workshop, so off I went!  Marcia is known for her amazing jewels and doll accessories, and she very generously shares her tricks of the trade when it comes to jewelry making.  Marcia had all sorts of fun odds and ends in the kit each attendee received, and right away, we started working.  Check out everyone working hard on their creations:

Gosh, all this running around, I’m working up quite an appetite!  Good thing lunch is right around the corner! Back into the time machine to head to the 60s next…
