Its all about these women that attend my
It’s a lot of work prepping for this event, months in the planning, I am so thankful for Melissa for all her behind the scenes help with making it happen this year ! ..
I have learned something about each person that participates..
I have learned that Jenny is quiet , a little shy but can be DEADLY like me ! HAHA she can crochet flowers like no other ! and she can make me give a speech with no alcohol involved ! LOL..
you all know I love to be front and center ! LOL..
Jenny's bracelet and choker when finished, she learned etching metals, and soldering.. Look at her crotched flowers she made inside !
I have learned that if you give 30 women soldering irons and solder they are happy for days and days, well maybe throw in a few bottles of wine ..
I have learned you don’t need to know a sole when you arrive, because it isn't long and you have 30 forever sisters!..
Ad the Sun and the Beach and you get lots of photos.. The Beautiful Oregon Coast
I have learned that all women deserve to come to Art Camp once in a life time, take that mini break in your life that can change your life forever….. putting yourself in a room with like wise women , creating a whole lot of artsy fun..
Our table settings at arrival.
I have learned it doesn’t matter how old we are, when you see your names on gifts it excites you ! and that we all adore Billie the massage therapist…
I have learned that sand art never goes out of style ! Jenny and Shelly playing in the sand .. THANKS Jenny and Shelly……
I have learned that the women arrive with the most amazing gifts for me.. pumpkin carved by Ilona Steelhammer..
The workers disappeared to have some fun! this was on set up day! it was hard to get things accomplished, can you tell they LOVE getting their picture taken!! HAHA Do you want these women to cook for you !!!
I've learned that cupcakes in a jar are super YUMMY! Best eaten with your fuzzy slippers, wine and new friends…
I've learned that Raccoons in masks like chocolate cupcakes too !
I've learned that our cook Teresita couldn’t handle the news that Joy wasn’t there to help her cook ! LOL I think she was on the spin cycle here..
I've learned a lot the past few years of doing Art camps, that in the end its always worth the work involved.. The Happiness it brings each women , and the amazing letters I get when I get home bring me to tears…
Hi Terri.......I can't say enough about the incredible experience I had at Art Camp....I came home walking on cloud nine. I loved making the jewelry and learning so much. The ladies and you were such a gift to my life as I continue to explore my bucket list. How blessed I was to be given the opportunity to go to your Camp and meet such Creative, Loving, and Supportive women. The positive energy surrounding all of us was so infectious and appreciated. I know you were exhausted and glad it's over, but you need to realized how many lives you have touched and changed and made a difference. For me it will always be a dream come true.....Thank you Thank you.....Warm Hugs and many blessings Vickie Orlando CA
