Feb. 2010 Retreat Status

(doing the Happy Dance!)

What a day! Registration has been open just over 12 hours and the event is about 2/3 filled already! I'm over-the-moon thrilled that so many of you want to join me for the first full retreat of An Artful Journey. If you're planning on coming, I strongly suggest that you register real soon, as a couple of the classes are close to filling. Do be sure you put down a 2nd choice at this point..even a third! Honestly, you can't go wrong with any of the five instructors--they're all fabulous and I invited them because they're the best in the business. Plus, we're all going to hang together and get to know one another during the event, so come and join us!

For those of you who registered yesterday, July 15, you'll be pleased to know that you got your 1st choice of workshop! I know some of you have been biting your nails off, hoping you got your favorite instructor. You can breathe now--confirmations will be emailed as soon as I sort through the lodging requests (that's where it gets tricky!) I just love this crazy mixed-media art world that we're involved in. Such passion and enthusiasm!

When I decided to take the plunge, I was hoping that others might be interested in the type of art retreat that I was looking for: a small retreat in a natural setting, plenty of time with one instructor, a calm and nurturing environment, exceptional instructors, a chance to really get to know other attendees...etc, etc. Guess I was right! More soon...

Oh, and there's still time to throw your name in the hat for my Provisions giveaway! Just leave a comment anytime through Saturday, and I'll pull a couple of names to receive a packet of goodies (scroll down to read the post about it!) Good luck!

I set my alarm and wouldn't you know it, this was the time it chose not to work. So 1.5 hours late, yet maybe I'm on time as your webhost is delayed.
I hope I got in, in time.

Hi Cindy,
My mom and I are interested in taking Kelly Rae's class but we have to wait a couple of weeks to verify that she will be available in Feb. Are there any openings left at this time? Are you planning another retreat at a later date?

Thanks for an update!
