Parcel Workshop Night! 13Parcel Workshop Night! 8When I came back from Silver Bella I treated myself to another bday gift, this time with my mom at Parcel, in Montclair, this shoppe is beyond words fabulous, just ask anyone who has been there.Parcel Workshop Night! 19 Parcel Workshop Night! 4Parcel Workshop Night! 7Parcel Workshop Night! 25You'll be there for hours looking inside all the wall vignettes and nooks and crannies. I especially love the vintage circus section, too cute and magical.Parcel Workshop Night! 23Parcel Workshop Night! 26Parcel Workshop Night! 22Parcel Workshop Night! 21Parcel Workshop Night! 11Mom and I headed to the Office for dinner and walked on over to Parcel and was greeted by the wonderful Nancy, Vanessa and Kristin who was teaching the class: A Marie Paper Doll, made from gorgeous crepe paper, images, trimmings and millinery.Parcel Workshop Night! 3I spent about 15 minutes taking pictures of all my favorite spots in the store, deciding what would be great Christmas gifts for myself, lol and friends. After looking at some of these images from Parcel, you will agree with me its an artful storybook filled with surprises. I really love the magical Fairy Dust, don't you want to buy every color?Parcel Workshop Night! 28fairy dust 3 at parcelThe next big surprise was when My pal: Marlene aka Queen Bee walked into the store to take the workshop too, I love Marlene, we were both at Silver Bella together, and this was another treat for us...Parcel Workshop Night! 30Parcel Workshop Night! 29Parcel Workshop Night! 31We were given pre-made forms and assembled others, I choose Peach, I normally don't work w/peach, but I wanted to work with a color to challenge myself, and I loved it, Peach is my new fave color. Challenging ourselves helps us to grow as people and for me as an artists. I'm always learning every second, every minute of the day, that's the most exciting part.Parcel Workshop Night! 37Parcel Workshop Night! 36Parcel Workshop Night! 39Parcel Workshop Night! 38I haven't finished mine yet, but hope to have the final details on it finished by Christmas, Its going to be one of the toppers for my many holiday trees at home. All she needs is some extra millinery and glitz.Parcel Workshop Night! 43Parcel Workshop Night! 46Parcel Workshop Night! 47Kristin!Kristin-InstructorWhile working on our dolls, we muched on yummy rose flavored cookies, mini pastries, sparkling waters and wine, these all make the night or any night that much more, lol, I love pastries.
