Magnolia Event 2012

So this weekend me and my lovely friends Annette and Hanna went to Borås to attend the amazing Magnolia Event. This year it was the first time it lasted a whole weekend but sadly me and my friends only visited on saturday. Since I didnt feel like bringing little Ella (I was attending a WS and standing in line probably isnt a fav thing to do for 2 and a half month olds ;)) I chose to go one day only. Ella will be over a year next Magnoloa day so Ill definately stay for two whole days then if they will offer WS:s then as well! But I´ll start at the top and lead you through :) Since Ive been to the store so many times (dont take me the wrong way - I love it ;)) I have only taken pics of me and my friends. If you want to see some stunning pics of the actual store I recommend a visit with my lovely friend Debbie Dolphin.

Here we are waiting in line, dying to go inside :) Annette, me and Hanna :) 
We wanted to try and get our hands on one of those goodie bags. To do that you have to be amongst the first 50 inside. We were numbers 23, 24 and 25 so we got them! 

Now let me tell you a little more about the WS I chose to attend! One of the ladies in the Magnolia DT and also my teamie in MDUC, lovely Debbie Dolphin was one of the DT´s Magnolia invited to teach WS:s. I really wanted to meet her and spend some quality craft time togheter. I was so exited to be able to meet her in person. We were already such good friends and we have had so much fun already but to meet IRL just confirmed all the good sides I know she has. She is an amazing friend and she is just as beautiful on the outside as the inside. Thank you Debbie, I loved it! In her WS she taught us how to color in sepia (which Ive wanted to do for so long ;)) and here´s what we made: 

So what do you think? 

And here´s a picture of me and Debbie: 

Magnolia also invited other talanted DT members and Im so happy to have met them as well. 
This is a real cutiepie, Mr Alberto Gava. He is also a gorgeous friend to me and Im so honored to say that we also have met now and we shared the most cozy hug ;) Here he is at his table teatching his WS which was Stamping the illusion of movement. Id love to have been able to attend that one too but time just didnt allow it. :( 

I have two large regrets from my visit. I didnt ask anyone to take a photo of me with Alby OR Magnolia DT member Christine Dark! Why? My brain must have left for a vacation somewhere in the middle of my visit. At least I got to meet them and they were both really awesome. Chris taught yet another WS Id love to have been able to do and that was coloring backgrounds. I mean, seriously: she totally is the queen of that!

In the picture below another beloved friend of mine, since she is swedish too Im lucky enough to have met her before. She showed us how she color her beautiful skintones with di´s. Her name is Lillemor and my heart skipped a beat to fianlly see her again. She is so cute! And she watercolors in the most gorge way!

I dont know if you remember I told you a little while back our amazing little MDUC family is growing. One of our newest additions is lovely Camilla H and she also showed us how she colores using her di´s. I mean, the cards look beautiful in our blogs but I wish you could have seen them IRL because they are even more gorgeous. I have also met Camilla a couple of times before and I was so happy to give her a hug again! 

Here we are togheter! :) My MDUC teamie and I :) Both Camilla and Lillemor are such amazing ladys too and they inspire me all the time, both regarding crafts and with their lovely personalities. I hope we will meet again soon!

As you can see I have had the most amazing time! However I usually meet some of my stunning norweigan friends while Im there too. I just wanted to mention I missed you, Camilla SJanne and Audhild
Thank you so much everybody! I hope to see you all again someday!

  8. Superfina foton du delar med dig av! Ser ut som du hade en toppendag i Borås! :D
    Alltså, jag har noll koll på allt inom kortmakeri just nu känner jag ;)
    Vet inte vilka som ingår i Magnolias designteam, inte har jag koll på alla olika färgläggningssätt heller! *haha* ;)
    Mycket har man missat på detta året man hållit uppe.
    Jag skulle nog mest agera fågelholk om jag åkte på en sånt där öppet hus numera!! ;)


  9. Awww Louise you look gorgeous sweetie, and you look like you had a most amazing time! You are so lucky to have met all these gorgeous people (and they you). I am putting aside some pennies in the hope that maybe next year I will be able to come to Boras.

  10. Så gøy at du deler dine opplevelser med oss Louise. Ser ut som om du har hatt en super dag, og fikk møtt mange i Magnolia teamet og MDUC. Jeg skulle gjerne ha vært på Magnolia dagen jeg også, men det gikk desverre ikke i år. Håper vi har muligheten til å komme neste år og at vi møtes da Louise.
