Hanging out in Concetta’s mosaic studio!
This week back in the UK, I took the opportunity to meet up with fellow “Flying” Sisters Amelia and Concetta – woohoo! I met these two lovely ladies at different times in the last year in our virtual world through “In the fish bowl” then on “Mondo Beyondo” and then again on the recent “Flying Lessons“. How wonderful when we discovered that we were within 10 miles of my hometown in south London!
Concetta kindly invited us to her lovely home, where we ate, drank, explored her Mosaic art studio and chatted about our creative endeavours. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful this was to finally meet these two kindred spirits in person after months of blog visiting, commenting and getting a tiny virtual view into their worlds. These are gals who are finding their creative community offline in addition to online so I cant wait to see where the next phase of their creative journey takes them.
Concetta’s very organized studio.
So exciting to make these connections. Another artful sister Beth
, is traveling across the pond from the UK to USA in September where both of us are off to SQUAM
(YAY!) so im so excited to see Beth again and I just found out Lorrie
is going too!
Anyone else going to Squam in September?
Do you have artful sisters who live close to you, that you could visit? or meet over coffee or lunch? Our virtual world is such a supportive place but taking the opportunity to meet face to face makes our creative connections that little bit extra special. Go ahead, make a plan and send that invitation. 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone. xx
that is SO COOL!
I just met a gal Wednesday night by ACCIDENT that took flying lessons Mondo Beyondo – etc etc! Of course we know it was no accident. It's synchronicity! She lives near by and had kids and we are going to start a playgroup for moms who make art and are making it happen so we can brainstorm. I would LOVE to go to Squam…..But I am teaching in Monterey in October…can't do both.
Dearest sweet Louise, this is truely amazing and so inspiring!! How wonderful to be able to meet up with not one but two lovely flying sisters!! Thanks so much for a little peek at talented Concetta's studio!! I am feeling so happy and excited as i read your meet up ~ ate, drink, explore and chat about creativity sounds soo wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing this with us! It made me feel like i am with all of you there too! Have a lovely merry happy weekend and love to you!
It is going to be so much fun! Did you see the video Flora Bowley posted about the workshop she ran to prepare for the one she is going to teach us? Lorrie shared it with me: http://florabowley.typepad.com
So cool that you met up with those lovely ladies when back home. Hope you are having a blast!
What a great evening! Thank you for getting us together Louise! xx
I love a good whimsical story about flying and friends!! And your artful journey wings have taken you on a creative flight of fun and fabulousness 🙂
How great that you got to meet them in person and share such a fun time. I will see you at Squam! Can't wait for Flora Bowley's class. I am picking Lorrie up at the airport on my way.
Lorrie and I are in Flora's class on thursday. I am picking her up at the Manchester airport wednesday about 9am. Are you driving or flying?
louise, great photo to sum up the evening. I remember the first evening I discovered your blog and I can't believe we met up, ate, drank and chatted on a sunny eve in London a few months later. It was great.
Here's to a whole load more creative flying and I hope to see you out in the USA one day 🙂
So happy to see you could meet and share! Your work is gorgeous! Thank you so much for let us be part of that wonderful experience!
That is so terrific that you have found awesome artsy soul sisters so close to you! I'm sure you created such divine energy together!
