It has been a summer whirlwind of teaching at New Jersey, Chicago and Texas CREATE retreats. Just got home from a fabulous time in Dallas, and now I leave soon again to teach in at Art is You Petaluma, California!
My giant purple suitcase has been emptied and filled up again with supplies, handouts, and clothes. Sophie Cat is eyeing it with great suspicion as she has learned what this means. I just love how wherever I go, I meet the most wonderful people. My classes have been so much fun and I look forward to each one.
