Seeking Special Correspondent

I am so bummed that we cannot make it to this weekend’s gingerbread house decorating class at the Park Hyatt Aviara in Carlsbad. I would LOVE to make my version of this creation, currently on display at the hotel…

The hotel was kind enough to offer us a free adult class to me or a free child’s class to the kids. But since we can’t attend, I am passing the opportunity onto YOU. Well, one of you who will be randomly selected to go in my place.

The one “catch” is that you must be prepared to share your photos from the class and a brief write up about the experience with Mom’s Guide readers. No experience necessary! I’ll help you pull your post together. It will be awesome!

Here’s the nitty gritty:

    Joyce, you are my randomly selected winner! I wish I could give you all one class. Thank you all so much for your interest and I’d love to add you to my contributors list for future opportunities. Would that be OK??

  2. Rachel C says:

    We would love to attend the kids class! I have a camera and a pen and love to write and a very adorable 3·5 half year old that would be so excited!

  3. Joyce says:

    Sounds like a wonderful experience. I can (would love to) do the adult class or my daughter can do the child’s class…I think she’ll be upset if I do a class and she doesn’t so I guess I better pick the child’s class. 🙁

    I’d love to go. I can’t do Dec. 7, but the other afternoon dates work. I’m a public relations writer for UC San Diego, so I’m used to turning stories around on deadline and taking pictures. Cheers, Ioana

    I’d love to attend, write & photograph ~ I can do either the morning or afternoon class.
