The Art Nest Retreat

I leave tomorrow morning to head down to Utah for the Art Nest Retreat. Some of you may remember that I had planned on attending The Writers Spa with Jennifer Louden in Taos. It turned up that I signed up too late so there were no openings. I went looking for something else to do and found this little retreat on Misty Mawn's blog. I am starting to get excited, I actually get to meet her and to take a class with her.

I ended up going to 5 stores to find cellophane bags for my trade. I could have saved all the time and made fabric bags. I put the card in the bag and tied it with ribbon and they really look nice. I am pretty much packed. I have a few things to do in the morning and I can head out. It will probably take me 4.5 hours to get there. People arrive anytime after 3 so I plan to leave around 10 or 11. I think this is going to be an awesome experience. I hope I don't get too star struck and act like an idiot.

They have allowed several evenings time for hiking and such and since I can't do any of that I am taking my journals and pens. Hopefully I will be able to create some fun things in the down time. I am all for a relaxing fun creative mind blowing experience. I will report details next week, I'll be coming back on Sunday, see you then.

Best of luck with your surgery. It should be having you feeling better!
An art retreat! How wonderful!
I was in an art doll swap with Daisy. She was delightful, I think her blog needs to be published as a book...she was always going to write one..good luck with your children's book!

I'm glad you stopped by and left a comment Kate. I've seen your comments on my daughter's blog, and 'sorta' know who you are.
Have a great time, I will come back next week and see how it went.
