Art Biz Jam Retreat: Heading Home

20130922-152710.jpg

Yesterday was a rainy and stormy day… It was a day of creating, brainstorming and networking. We learned so much about art licensing, from the presenters and each other.

The atmosphere was perfect, the instructors were incredibly generous with their time and content.

The evening before, the moon was shining so brightly there were shadows. The waves were crashing consistently and peacefully.

We all got temporary artist tattoos celebrating a special trait found in each of us. Mine was warmth… I love my friend Lori Siebert’s flower matching my style!

More tomorrow! My flight is boarding! Looking forward to hugs from my family.

Live, Love, Junk Retreat: Register Today!

20130729-091219.jpg

The Live, Love, Junk Retreat is rapidly approaching… and we would love you to join us!

Here is a glimpse of my blog post from last year that shows you a fantastic glimpse of the shopping and creativity of the vendors.

The Live, Love, Junk Retreat is centered around the Junk Bonanza held semiannually in Central Minnesota. The vintage junk shopping is an incredible experience and the event is filled with dynamic vintage finds and cool creations using junk.

The retreat includes your early bird ticket to shop the event (a must to beat the massive crowds and get first dibs on the best finds.) You will connect, giggle and enjoy the camaraderie of other junking queens, enjoy a Meet and Greet Party, Shuttle to and from the Junk Bonanza, A Funtastic BBQ, and a Restyle Workshop (I have some fun projects for the workshop! Hope you can join us!!)

Your registration also includes a Live, Love, Junk Market Bag with exclusive offers and discounts for the Retreat attendees from the Junk Bonanza attendees. Also enjoy a Friday evening Farewell Round Up Dinner and Bingo!

I am looking forward sharing this experience with all of you!

Remember, Save $20.00 by registering by August 1!!

Tours and Treasures

20130607-101724.jpg

We got up bright and early to get Sawyer on his way for his boys choir tour up through Quebec & Montreal! They are going to have so much fun! For 12 days, I’ll be stalking the boys choir twitter feed for updates and at night reading their daily events via their blog.

Dream Big

20130601-144307.jpg

After months of pleading by Keegan, hesitation by Moi (a somewhat fearful & protective mother), and reassurance from Dad, I caved. After only two practices, Keegan had his first two lacrosse games today. It is quite a physical sport, and yes there were numerous gasps coming from the spectators in our area… Well yes, I guess it was only me! Ha! He had a blast though!

I got a fun buy on some stamped spoons last weekend and I enjoyed creating with them the past few days. My favorite is the Dream Big! I might just have to keep that one for myself. I believe we should all Dream Big!!! Go for it!!

Today we have Kya’s first softball game and then Sawyer’s final boys choir concert of the year, the On Tour concert. Next week he is off on his 12 day tour to Canada. It is going to be a crazy few weeks!

I hope you are having an incredible weekend.

ReGrouping!

20130528-122826.jpg

Today is a day to regroup! The weekend was amazing. However I admit, I am feeling a little wiped out. I have been working on a few new ideas today and staying low key.

20130528-123921.jpg

I am amazed that there are only a few more days of school left for my kids!!

Have a FUNtastic Tuesday!
