Here's a portion of the room where the classes were held. I took this photo when we first arrived before anyone was in the room. Yamille had a card/project kit and gift box for everyone.
This room is up the stairs from the store. Here you can see Yamille and I looking out through the curtain at all of the ladies in the store that came to my classes. You can see a bit of the store through the glass window between the two rooms. There is actually a third room that you do not see in this photo that Yamille uses for parties and gatherings. That is the room where our homemade fabulous lunches were served. On Friday, Yamille's hubby, Juan Carlos, made two AWESOME lasagnas that would rival any authentic Italian dish. There were also some yummy plantains that I just can't get off my mind. On Saturday, we had another lunch with some Puerto Rican favorites. I still can't believe the amount of food that I ate on this trip! There wasn't anything that we ate that I didn't completely and absolutely love.
As I stated earlier, Yamille has a tremendous amount of energy about her. She gave away prizes and got people dancing.
Here are some of the ladies in the class.
Dancing up to the front to claim her prize.
And the prize is.....a new Tim Holtz bag! I took one home too :-)
Me, Yamille and Mindy posing for the camera at Memory Box.
This sign is my favorite thing in the store! I've gotta find one of these for myself.
These are my Little Darlings rubber stamps hanging on the wall!!! I had a special set designed just for the Puerto Rico event and you can see some of them in this photo. I will be officially releasing them in 2012.
Another photo of my Little Darlings rubber stamps.
Mindy and I spent the better part of Sunday touring Old San Juan. I'll have those photos for you soon. The city is absolutely STUNNING!!! On Monday, Yamille took us to the San Juan Mall for a little shopping. Many of the stores were the same as we have here in Michigan. But, Yamille saved the best store for last and took us to her favorite local boutique...Bliss. And it was :-) I spent a lot of money there!!!
I hope to be heading back to PR to teach more classes in the future. I really had a wonderful time.
I'll have more photos soon...
