I just returned from "Squam by the Sea", an art retreat that was held in the Outer Banks in North Carolina. I booked this event back in the very beginning of the year, as a much needed getaway since I have never really left the kids in the 7 years since I have become a mother.
It was so much more than art, and these things usually are, and I have returned tired, but rejuvenated. I don't want to describe with words because I think the photos do a better job.
A table of trinkets to choose our inspiration for a bit of creative writing.
What I chose....
From the class I took called "Awaken the Muse."
My new friend, Michelle's, cool camera strap.
A gift for Paul.
Two of my fellow squammies:) I miss them already.
I finally had an outlet for my face painting!! I loved that lots of folks wanted a little decoration.
