Busy busy busy busy.......

Yikes poor blog. Been so neglected as of late. It has been a crazy busy summer with so much fun stuff happening I just simply forgot to blog! I am kind of bad that way. Like when I do events I forget to take pictures. Recently I spent 4 glorious days in Lisle Illinois for the CREATE mixed media retreat put on by the fine folks at Cloth Paper Scissors magazine I met so many people who I instantly bonded with, laughed so hard my face hurt, did a little synchronized swimming, ate lots of great great pizza...oh and made art! I took THREE pictures the entire weekend. 3. I am so lame.

This was my Life collage class. I had a blast with these fine ladies. Each one of them became my friend in just 6 hours that we spent together! Missing from the picture is my sidekick Mel who was so helpful the whole weekend plus she drove. Thank GOD! I would have had 32 panic attacks on the tollway. I would have likely had to have a police escort to make it to Lisle. Mel is a fantastic artist, wonderfully talented blogger and all around swell gal. I also got to meet some great people I have long admired online and visit again with my bff Sue Pelletier. It was so much fun. Work should be that fun all the time.

So much more that 25 year class reunion, my Inspire My Life retreat, lots of family fun and journey to a healthier me. All of which I will write about very soon! It was a great summer and with lots of new plans ahead I can't wait for the fall and winter too!
