Last Fall while in St. Paul, Minnesota for The Creative Connection Event, I found myself dining in a restaurant in with some pretty fabulous people- Charlotte Lyons, Kaari Meng, Debbie Murray and Shea Fragoso, Heather Ales, and Michelle Rose Jorgensen and her charming husband, Bob. That, my friends, is a dinner you don’t forget. I spent a lot of time talking to Michelle that evening and again when we met up at the 2012 Winter CHA in January. Michelle is an amazing designer, instructor, milliner, and shop keep of the spectacular Rose Mille in Stillwater, MN, shown here featured in the Feb/Mar issue of Where Women Create. Michelle’s French-inspired romantic style is infectious, to say the least. If you spend time perusing the Rose Mille Web Shop you’ll find yourself not only smitten, like me, but in a state of inspiration euphoria! Just imagine all of the beautiful projects possible with the multitude of unique supplies Michelle has curated.I contacted Michelle regarding her beautiful, custom color German Glass Glitter because I thought it would be perfect for including in my upcoming workshop at Art Is You! in September. Not only did she oblige, but just look at the gorgeous kits she assembled to sponsor the workshop Each attendee will receive a sweet little vintage plastic box holding 8 tiny bottles filled with a colorful selection of pure glass glitter.The pink is my favorite- the perfect hue.Michelle also sent a surprise just for me! Tucked in with the glitter shipment was A Rose Mille Cachette du Mois. A handmade round box stuffed to the brim with crafty supply delectables, many vintage, and each piece hand chosen for the upcoming month’s theme.Mine is the September Cachette… I. Am. Speechless.
You can find the entire list of September Cachette contents here.
Opening that box was like diving head first into the Rose Mille shop. I can hardly wait to make something with these supplies. If anyone ever asks me again what I’d like for my birthday, Christmas, Anniversary, whatever… its a subscription to these monthly kits from Rose Mille. Thank you SO much Michelle, you’re incredible!!
