California Dreamin...



And so I'm a big one for throwing ideas around - you know the kind of thing - crazy, out there kinds of ideas that are impossibly possible - maybe, sometime, if the universe gives the nod... Normally, I like to keep my ideas to myself - or at least  only share them with my team who are used to hearing my wild and woolley thoughts on things. But today, I'm going to throw an idea out to you guys... What I love about crazy ideas, is that, with a little tending and love, sometimes they come to fruition... Like my books as an example... And my workshops at The Little Cottage. And my product line (which is bubbling away nicely, to be released early next year) and for those of you who have been following my blog.... my pool! You know the one...
I've been thinking of my friends over in the United States of late - you gorgeous girls who have been faithfully following my blog from the get go... I've had so many lovely and supportive emails from our US sisters, asking if I would ever consider running a workshop there... Being busy over the last few years, at home and at work, it really didn't seem possible. I mean, how would I make it work? Where would we workshop? Who would come? But, this year is different. This year, I say, well, anything is possible. And so, I'm throwing this idea out to you, my American friends... I am thinking of a workshop to be conducted in California - probably L.A or the environs of... (Any excuse for a meet and greet, I say...) And so, I'm throwing the idea out there... Today... Right now... And I'm asking the universe (and you guys!) for a little feedback... Let me know if you're interested in attending a Shannon Fricke How To Decorate or Styling 101 workshop...  Sometime soon.... Email me here if you have any thoughts (or advice)... Look out California - we're a dreamin!
