well i think i'm caught up with sharing all my photos and artwork from Artnsoul AND my photos and pictures from Art is. I think i was probably a little crazy to do back to back art retreats, but it just sort of worked out that way. i took the red eye home, repacked and was headed to Connecticut 3 hours later. it definitely was crazy. i got so tired driving, i had to pull over at a rest stop on the parkway and take a nap. I'm glad i headed up to Connecticut as i had a wonderful time and made some great contacts and may possibly be doing some teaching there next year.

Now here's where i get even crazier, i'm leaving on Wednesday for California to take 2 days of classes with Cindy Forrestor. I'm going 2 days early and will get to spend time with my mom and meet her 2 new dogs, Blossom and Paddington, and also get to see my sister and niece who happens to be on fall break. we found a dog friendly hotel in Seal Beach and will find some fun things to do for 2 days before i head over to meet up with the retreat girls for a big shopping day on Friday.

and yes, when i get home, i will be taking a little break from traveling (but don't quote me!). i've got some holiday orders to start filling, a show in Nov. and a show in Dec. so i think that will keep me busy enough!
