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.
