Stay tuned for details in the coming months, with registration opening sometime in July. I have a feeling it will fill up quickly, especially with the other fun things I have in mind. I'm so fortunate to be able to hold these events--thanks to all for making my dreams come true!
So, back to the most recent event...I have lots more photos, but for now--feast your eyes, and mark your calendars to join us next year!
We had our meals together in the Dining Hall, which was such a great time to meet up with old friends, and new.
See the prayer flags hanging in the windows? Attendees made over 50 of them, and each grouping was raffled off at the end of the retreat. I'm thinking this is the beginning of an new tradition!
Journey returnees, Stella and Amy
|This was taken during a short burst of blue skies--it rained most of the time, but it didn't seem to dampen the spirits!|
|Mother and daughter, Holly (r) and Kayla (l)|
|Erin and Kerri came from Washington to be with us--always smiling!|
Good friends, Carmen, Mikki and Diana, traveled from southern CA to attend the Journey
|Raffling off the prayer flags. (Love the ceilings in the dining hall!)|

The work they did in this class was really fantastic--how they got the plaster to dry in such wet weather is a bit of a mystery (ssshhh), but they did it! Stephanie and Judy Wise are offering an online plaster class this summer, which is getting a lot of buzz. I've signed up--have you?
See DJ's blog for more photos!
Albie Smith's class
Albie will be teaching again next year, and the class size will be small--students were thrilled with how much info they received, and I expect next year's class to fill very quickly!
Amy's been to all the Journey retreats!
Nina Bagley's class
Love this pic that DJ took of me and Nina
I coveted this fantastic box that Sharon used for her supplies!
DJ has more photos of Nina's class on her recent blog post about the Journey, so be sure and check it out. I love that I got this pic of Nina's tools!
Jesse Reno's Class
Beth came all the way from England to attend Jesse's class. She's putting on her own retreats in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. Check it out here!
Orly's daughter, Maya, was our youngest attendee; she was such a joy to have around! Her art speaks for itself...
Stella, focused on her work
Orly Avineri's Class
Orly had a special challenge in her nature journaling class. Because it was raining and snowing most of the time, she had to get creative on how to bring the outdoors in...without actually going out!
I love pictures of work tables
Orly lives in southern CA and offers workshops down that way--you can check out her blog to get more information. It's definitely something I would like to do if I find my way down there.
Diana Britt sharing her jewelry
I wish I had pictures of all of the tables, but here's a glimpse at some of the work that attendees brought from home to share. It was great to see what they do in their 'real' lives! This is something that I'd like to continue at future events, as it's all about 'sharing and connecting' with others.

The always cheerful Monica Moran
Lori Burek with her wonderful jewelry display
Leah Virsik with her handmade books
Mindy with her paintings
They all look way too serious...lol!
Albie's papers and books were a big hit...as they always are!
Stephanie had already sold quite a few pieces before this was taken
Nina's table is always busy
Jesse had all kinds of work for sale, and 'tagged' each piece for the buyer. I snagged a couple of things for gifts--don't tell my son!
