Jumping in here to let you know that the 2013 Artful Journey workshop descriptions are finalized and should be on the website by June 1. I'll be sure and do a shout-out when they're up! Registration for next February's retreat opens on July 10 at 10am Pacific time. Easy to remember, right? I'm so excited to be able to offer this special retreat again; I hope you're looking forward to it as much as I am. More on the exciting lineup and classes in the coming weeks...(I sure as heck wouldn't want to have to choose between these 6 great instructors though!)
Things are hopping around here in my personal life, but I do take time out for a good read now and again. One of my favorites is the Canadian magazine, Uppercase. It's a bit pricey, but so worth it--great photos and graphics, lots of interesting articles and resources. Honestly, it's just full of inspiration. Go take a look here, but I'm warning you. You'll be sucked in and may not come up for air for awhile.
I purchased a few back copies recently—just imagine my surprise when I spotted this little blurb in Issue #12, under 'A Roundup of Creative Retreats'!
I did one of those cartooney double-takes on that one. As I started to turn the page, the voices in my head went, "hmm, that event sounds kinda familiar—woah, wait a minute!" I don't know how it got there, but I owe a big thank-you to Christina Crook, as she apparently did all the rounding up. Thanks, Christina!
Another favorite splurge of mine is Dumbo Feather from Australia. It comes out quarterly and is a superb collection of five inspirational in-depth interviews, as well as some short feature articles. They "seek out those who inspire us, those who excite us, and those who thrill us with possibility." What more could you ask for? And to top it off, the photos are awesome, the paper is yummy--it even smells good. Needless to say, I'm a big fan. Again, if you want to lose yourself for awhile, just check out their blog right here. TONS of good stuff!
Check back here on Friday when I'll be participating in a blog hop featuring one of my favorite artists/instructors, Orly Avineri...
