Many thanks for sharing the schedule with us here. Hopp it will be an exiting event.Another year, another sync!
We are back with the next installment of the weekend sync, originally started by the fabulous @SmokeAndSky
I've tried to come up with themes that are diverse and flexible enough for most people to find something in their wardrobe that will apply. It's a way for us to get creative with the things we already own, be inspired by other people's interpretations, and enjoy some lovely and lively discussions.
The idea is that you can join each weekend, either for one day or both, depending on what works for you.
I hope you will all join me on this journey, have fun!
Weekend Theme June 3 & 4 Walking a mile… …in the previous poster's shoes. This weekend we celebrate our fellow Basenoters!
