WOW...what a wonderfully heart-warming and inspiring event. We had the pleasure to participate in Art Is You 2008 retreat in CT over Columbus Day weekend and it was just superb! We met some truly beautiful, sweet souls - we are so pleased to see old friends and meet new. Salli-anne & Ellen went above and beyond as usual! The artwork, workshops & special extras were awesome - we were surrounded by talent.

We met Terri Ventura of Dime Store Daze - we had a really great time together. Terri is sweet, honest & awe-inspiringly talented. All photos on this entry are thanks to Terri's camera as I forgot mine. Thank you, thank you, thank you! :)
I am so happy we met such a wonderful, new friend - she had me giggling all weekend.

Terri made these wicked cool little notebooks - I was lucky enough to get one.
One of the workshops I taught - Can Can Dolls
I had such a lovely time with the ladies in all of my classes...
Terri (she's sooo darn talented!) took my Oh Baby! class and brought it to a new, exciting level incorporating some of her fabulous bits (you MUST check out her stuff - waaay cool!)
Pamela Huntington has a gorgeous display as always - she is SUCH a sweetheart!
Me, Pam & Terri - it was a long day full of activities
We met Laura, who was kind enough to assist w/ Terri's booth. She is very talented & another new friend we had so much fun with...
Laura & Sal
Kecia - she is soooo great. I really enjoyed having her in my Oh Baby! class - she did an amazing piece. I was salivating at her table on vendor night - really fun and simply GORGEOUS work!!
Ellen & Sal
These ladies worked so hard to make sure this event was a success...they are the BEST!
Here's a peek at some of our displays...
I LOVE doing them - it's like one, giant piece of artwork to me. My hubby jokes that I can't stop "fussing" with them, but its a labor of love.
