Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

Journal Workshop

Our first workshop was creating a journal…from scratch…taking plain papers and ephemera and creating something unique.

Something that captured the βσhσ spirit of each gal.

I encouraged them to use a favorite picture of themselves {at any age} on the front cover.

all of the above photos were taken by Amber of Tres Birds Photography

  2. Elaine,

    Thank you so much for the kindness and generosity you showed all of us. We had a memorable time. I do not know anyone who has as much flair and style as you do. I would go out of my bubble again for such a wonderful time.

  5. I don’t know if you remember me, but we did Swappy Ladies together last year! Your blog is so adorable! I absolutely wish I lived near you, I would love to learn from a master. You truly make the most beautiful things! I want everything! Your weekend sounds like so much fun. I think many of us in other parts of the country should follow suit! Blessings to you!

  7. Elaine, and all the other BoHo’s in training…what a glorious weekend it was to spend with you all!

    I left, smiling, tired, energized, happy and satisfied…did I say tired? The quality of women there speaks to the heart of who you are and what you are about. Thank you so much for opening your home and your talents to all of us!
