Sandcastle Sirens

Together ,myself along with some really great ladies are hosting Sand Castle Sirens -an artists retreat

We have two amazing classes being taught by Julie Haymaker Thompson

along with a bohemian bonfire and vintage vendor sale(marché dans le jardin)

and as if that's not enough :: all of this will be happening seaside at our beautiful Coronado beach house location.

30% of the sales made at the vintage vendor sale goes directly into our art therapy program- what a blessing to be in the middle of such a giving group of talented, fun, beautiful women.

we have just a few spots open to attend the class, but you better hurry;)

risk love

So my really wise and very fun friend Jackie brought to my attention that I have won the flakiest blogger award and yes I am wearing the crown every day until I get myself back into more consistant blogging;)

Aren't friends great, they give you that nudge, laugh with you , and are always there if you need a hand, I am so very blessed to have so many great women in my life.
We spent a few hours yesterday drawing and painting, I made this very french looking lady, she I might put some word boxes that remind me to "risk love"
