I am so super excited to announce that the wonderful Cathy Kirwan and I will be hosting a visioning workshop in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday January 28th! So if you are in the Melbourne area, come and join us!

Cathy and I first met at An Artful Journey in February 2012 and sat at the same table creating & chatting. We have been virtual blog friends eversince and when I said I was coming to Melbourne as part of my 3 month adventure, we just knew we had to plan something fun and special to do!

Visioning is a huge part of my “Big Dreams, Small Wonders” class (the January session of class starts on Jan 9th!). I also run a visioning workshop and host an intentions brunch every January in the USA so being able to spend the day with wonderful Cathy and other creative souls in Melbourne visioning an awesome 2012 for us all is amazing!
