California dreaming

I have always wanted to live in California, even though I have never been lol.  I would never plan a vacation there because I felt like I would never be able to make myself come back home.  We are planning on moving to a more urban location when my husband is done with college next May, but if I bring up California he says it's too far from here.  At least we will be moving closer to the beach.  That is the first of my moving stipulations, the second is that it must be at least as warm as where we live now. When I saw this is certainly did nothing to ebb my desiree to head west.
Are you ready to find yourself here?

As we count down to our registration opening on June 18th,
here’s your first look at the details of
CRAFT: Creating Reflective Art for Transformation!

Six days left until you can sign up of one of the
24 spots we have available for our premiere boutique event.

We have a lineup of incredible instructors that you’ll love…teaching six full length classes over three days of peaceful, meaningful time for YOU.
No need to pick your favorites, everyone takes every class
in our small intimate group setting overlooking the Pacific.

We’ll be offering three scrapbook page based projects, one canvas project,
a journal project and a special mixed-media project.
Every class will focus on emotion, and will be totally personalized and customizable to your specific life circumstances, needs, challenges and where you want to grow.

While you’ll be learning amazing techniques, styles, tips and techniques in every class,
these are not cookie-cutter sessions –
you’ll be challenged to dig deep, learn about yourself and
tailor your project to reflect who you are and who you want to be.
