Our 2 day, Mixed Media with Your Mountain Muse weekend concluded Sunday eve and what a great workshop! We became a community of 17 creative women pretty quickly, especially after we shared what we had in common and what we found on our "pleasure wander" (thanks to Ivy Walker for that term!!). Look at the joy in the colors below; wow. It was an intense time, with so much creativity emerging in the form of two different collages. Who needs utensils for lunch? I had a "yummy" weekend with this group and am so grateful for the time and connections. Huge thanks to our angel, Margot, for her loving directions keeping us all going. A little white wine toast at the end (thanks Celeste!); I miss everyone already.
Woohoo! - my first Craftsy class will be up and running sometime today. Unbelievable. It has been such a growth experience and I am walking in gratitude! So many of my art buddies had never heard of this on-line platform, or they heard of it and thought it was JUST crafts...well check it out! I noodled around the site with encouragement from CarolAnn Waugh who was one of the first instructors. I was so pleased to find it and immediately started purchasing classes in the art area. I learned so much from the perspective and figure drawing classes, the watercolor and acrylic paint classes...that I wanted to be part of this community so I pitched a class. It took a few years but I finally heard back; and now the class on art journaling is a reality. What fun. For a launch discount just use the link on my shop page. You'll even see me in my Dive Bar element (and that is CarolAnn next to me along with the wonderful Anna who was my Craftsy connection). Woohoo!
