Art Biz Jam Retreat: Heading Home


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.

Sometimes Morning Arrives Early!


Morning!! There was not much for sleep last night. My alarm rudely wakened me at 1:30 am.

After dragging myself from my cozy & snuggly bed, my excitement started to build.

I am now at the airport, desperate for caffeine to kickstart my day.

My flight leaves in just over an hour, my final destination is Destin, Florida. The ArtBizJam starts tonight!! I am so excited. Excited to spend time with my artful friends, excited learn and finesse my business.

The only damper is that I wish my family could join me… I am certain they would love the white sand beaches!

But school and commitments prevail so I will be missing them!

I hope you had plenty of sleep last eve! Have a great day!
