a dream and an art retreat

scrDOILY.pile_700.jpg

today's the day! the start of our second southern circle retreat. through all the excitement and tummy jitters, it still feels like such a dream that jenni and i have put this together. and by this, i mean a gathering of women for a weekend of artsy goodness and bonding. it really is much more than making art, it is a reawakening of the spirit. i know our sweet attendees will leave on sunday a little happier and a lot lighter in spirit than when they came.

jenni and i will be meeting at the lake house in serenbe around 2 today and we will start whipping the space into a wonderland of twinkle lights and doilies. we will lay out all our hoarded art supplies to play with, from buttons to fabric to paper to pens to paint. we will set out snacks and place treats on the beds of our attendees. then we will take a deep breath and wait for the 12 women to arrive.

and finally...we will open some wine and start creating!!!
