Artful Journey sisters from Kelly Rae & Mati’s class Feb 2010

Today I’m heading to An Artful Journey, in Los Gatos CA. It’s amazing to think that one year ago, I was on this journey of trepidation, the unknown and a belly full of butterflies not knowing what to expect on this very first art retreat. This time last year, I was traveling by myself, ready to venture into new possibilities and new friendships. This year, I’m traveling down from San Francisco with fellow lovely art friends Beth Nicholls and Juliette Crane, excited to see our Artful sisters and meet new creative souls over the next few days.

I’m taking Stephanie Lee’s Plaster class and I am SO EXCITED to get my hands dirty, creating in this medium. I haven’t used plaster since I was 16 years old at art school. I cannot wait to see what emerges. The last few days as we have been walking, talking and exploring San Francisco I have been so inspired and itching to get into the studio.  

What is it you are itching to create at the moment?

February New/Full Moon Dreamboard

This month, I tried out Oprahs “O Dream Board” tool. (Thanks Sonya for sending me the link on facebook!).

The New Moon started on the 2nd of February and tomorrow (19th) see the moon in all it’s full moon glory. So there is still time to create your Dream Board to put your dreams, intentions and focus out there for the next month. Will you join me? Here is my original post for more information on Dream Boards. Feel free to post a link to yours below in the comments if you do. And post to the open flickr group here.

I am so EXCITED to be away for 3 whole days creating with an amazing group of artful sisters. I will be missing those of you who cant make it this time and look forward to expanding our circle of gorgeous creative souls with new friends.

*AND* Special discount for the Spring session of Big Dreams, Small Wonders ends this SUNDAY. Check out all the details here. 

Wishing you all a creative few days. Xx
