it’s time

This past week I was at a retreat for polymer artists in Shrinemont (Orkney Springs, VA). There are lots of different kinds of retreats out there for creative folks, but they all have one thing in common – getting together with friends to make stuff. The beauty of a retreat is that you have time.
Let me say that again. TIME.

Time to make is hard to come by. The needs of the days eat it up and fritter it away. It’s hard to get anything done. So I really enjoyed 5 days of time. Time to create. Time to relax. Time to snack and chat and giggle.

If you are hoping to push yourself into a more creative place, might I suggest finding some event where there is enough time to really get into the swing of creating.

It’s all about time.

I am an artist because I must be. My mind wanders and my fingers follow. Just feed me a little more chocolate and I'll be fine.

    Sounds like fun! If I’m in town in early July, I can be content with just a quick trip to the high desert.
