I'm Back!!!!

I can't tell you how lucky I am to be surrounded by such good people. Sometimes, people just happen into your life for no apparant reason, until later you find that they are exactly what you need to have around you. I spent an evening with such a friend..... Lovely Linda and she once again inspired me to get back to posting to my blog. I came home after our visit and journaled about our evening...oh, how we laughed and shared good times....her show and tell always inspires me...and today, well, I'm back....thanks so much for the evening of inspiration, Linda.

Summer vacation did really fly by, and before I knew what had hit me, it was back to school. Back to the hustle and bustle of being back at work...where oh where did the lazy days of summer get to. I did spend some time in my studio...trying to get it organized...and somehow, in the process of packing to go away for Art & Soul in Portland, I trashed it again :)

Here is a little sneak peek though...and I promise, I'll clean it...um, someday.

What A Mess!!!!!

Speaking of Art & Soul....I had the most fabulous time....I realized though, that jewelry making is not for me....torches!!! who invited fire to the party? I really did take some great classes including one on organizing my studio...better get busy. I'll have to post pictures of the retreat once I get the mess in my studio unpacked and put away.

There is something magical that happens at art retreats. Just being around so many incredible people who share the same passion as you is just an experience of a lifetime. I'm already registered for Art & Soul in Hampton!!!

Anywho, thanks blogland for welcoming me back and still being here for me to ramble on and on. I hope that like my friend Linda, I have inspired someone out there to get back to their own blog...

Here's to you Linda!!

Until next time,

I'm tickled pink to see you back in blog land!! We all need a nudge from time to time and I'm glad I could help.

Ophelia!!! I ran across your fun give away of ephemera and looked up your blog--how wonderful!!! I am just now attacking unpacking from A&S--can you believe it?!! I've only cleared off my table and my huge suitcase is skulking in the doorway of the guest room. I bet the friend I borrowed it from wants it back!!
After I get everything put away where it goes, I will be able to finish my project from Stephanie's class. Were you able to finish your two before the night was over??? You are such the over-achiever!
Keep in touch and visit my blog!!! www.erthsongs.blogspot.com
