Honestly, all of you created wonderful art pieces! You must’ve put your heart on it, that’s why it turned out superbly! Was that limo owned by Donna? If not, then Donna must be that generous, much enough to rent a limo for her friends!

i loved seeing all of the ladies during their process of creating what they were learning. thanks for the pictures giving us a chance for a "look see" of what its like. to get to go on a retreat sounds awesome. i've never been on a retreat and would be giddy to the bone if i were chosen to go with you on your fall retreat. its comforting to see how at ease everyone is while creating. christy YOU ARE THE BOMB and YOU ROCK IT everyday. thank you for sharing;)

I L.O.V.E.D. the retreat at Donna's! It was fun getting to know new people who share the same passion for mixed media art as I do. Each and every minute was filled with making fabulous art...thanks for sharing your time and talents with us!

I wish that I lived closer. The workshop and retreat sound like a lot of fun. Your artwork is amazing! Looks like everyone had a good time. I love the way the food was packaged. That is such a neat and original idea!

I had such an amazing time. Both you and Donna were so incredibly generous with your talents. It was a weekend I won't forget, between the art and the wonderful women there.
