I Want To Go There...

A few years ago, I might have been headed out to Coachella this weekend, but now I'm eyeing next weekend as THE weekend to be in Palm Springs...The ACE Hotel is having an Art Exchange Crafting Community Weekend Friday, April 23, 2010 through Sunday, April 25, 2010's a little bit about it from their blog:

The Art of Exchange is a two day, two night artist retreat for kids and families with interactive workshops, activities, projects, Saturday movie night with popcorn, and the aforementioned s’mores (which we’re obviously feeling pretty casual about). Karen and friends — including Clare Crespo, who made the diorama in the lobby — will guide art projects like potato prints, miniature gardens, macramé, dioramas, and knitting, with a focus on the reuse and repurposing of natural materials. You can also just do your own thing, hang out by the pool, and explore. Community activities will include a poolside barbecue, Sunday brunch, and some communal dining with a special menu for families.

There’s a special package for the event that includes all workshops, projects, and group activities, and a Kimmel Kids tote filled with goodies. See more about visiting daily just for activities here.
Karen’s handmade trivets and Kimmel Kids totes and coloring books are also sold exclusively through the Community Shop at Ace Hotel & Swim Club.

A chance to hang out at the Ace in Palm Springs with family friendly activities!! Color me excited!!
Thanks Alexis for the excellent tip!


  1. I don't even have kidlets (yet!) and I am dying to go to this. Clare Crespo is the coolest.

  2. This looks like it will be a great trip. We just came back from Palm Springs and stayed at Korakia Pensione, It was amazing!


I'm hanging on your every word...let me know what you think!
