Tonight I am packing for an Artful Journey Retreat with Nina Bagley. I leave in the morning for the 3 hour drive to the Presentation Center in Los Gatos and check into my little cottage at 3pm. I'm very excited to have this time to my self to relax, rest and recharge. I'm looking forward to walks on the grounds with my camera in hand discovering new worlds and landscapes. I'm also looking forward to spending 3 days in a jewelry making class with Nina. I love to collect found objects and if she can teach me ways to incorporate them in to my art work I would love it. Fortunately I have a list of items to bring, it is difficult to know what to pack. Beads, silver wire for wrapping, ribbon, pearls, found objects, lace, and lots of other stuff is going into the mix, I'm just not sure what I'll want once I get there. I'm also taking a suitcase full of journaling supplies so I have that to work on if I want to. It is going to be a full week-end. I don't know if I"ll be able to post or not, if not you won't hear from me until Monday. You all have a wonderful weekend.
