Record of a creative recovery
I've been asked if I'd like to do an exhibition in the front atrium of the place I work .... eeek! Happily my very creative co-worker has agreed to take part too - which makes it far less scary :-) It's not happening until January 2009 which leaves me plenty of time to procrastinate and still get stuff ready for the exhibition ... I got butterflies in my stomach thinking about it yesterday - what a cool opportunity!! ... oh and did I mention that it will be the *very first time* I've put any of my stuff on public display ... what a year!
I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since I said goodbye to all the lovely ladies I met at the Art Nest retreat in Park City, Utah ... how will I ever find the words to describe such a wonderful experience?
I headed to Utah with a bundle of impossibly high expectations and creative dreams tangled up inside me ... this was my first trip abroad on my own and it was a journey that I somehow felt I *just had to make* ... it's been tricky to explain to people why I felt I had to spend hundreds (and hundreds) of pounds to travel thousands of miles to attend a 3-day art retreat ... not an easy thing to explain to myself let alone anyone else! I can only blame the very persuasive Julie and Candice who somehow reached their caring embrace out across the Alantic and told me "keep following your brave and bold notions" ... how could I turn them down?
Oh my poor blog, how I've neglected you! I will be making amends over the next month or so when I share all my exciting news about my trip to the Art Nest Retreat all the way over the pond in Utah! ... More about that soon but for now here's the bundle of joining information that arrived in the mail a couple of days ago ... look at that gorgeous little key ... and the vintage fabric ... oh my word I am in for the time of my life I think :-)
Tomorrow the wonderfully inspiring Eric Maisel is coming ... here ... to my little blog! We're going to talk about the meaning of life and light fluffy stuff like that ;-) I have no clue whether anyone out there will be coming along for the ride but I'm getting my best china ready just in case. I haven't *quite* finished my preparations for the grand arrival but as Eric is over in the US of A I figure I've got time zones on my side :-)
