Heaven, I'm In Heaven*




It's everything I could have ever dreamed of, and more, and class hasn't even started yet.

Ask me who I rode to the retreat with today. Go on. Ask me.

Ilene, my ride, picked me up at the hotel and mentioned that we had to pick up a couple of other people. Just a quick stop in San Fran to pick up Mati Rose, and then a stop at the San Jose airport to pick up Kelly Rae Roberts. I don't think I need to say anything more do I? Oh, maybe you'd like to know that I managed not to gush too much. Not too much!

Tomorrow we paint.

*I may not really be in Heaven, but this centre is also a living, breathing Convent. So I'm close!

  8. Cathy,
    Your photos are so good. They make me feel like I'm right there with you. I am there in spirit. I'm glad you're enjoying (is that too mild a word?) yourself.

    If that's not a sign then I don't know what is!
    I reckon that by the end of the retreat MRM and KRR will be gushing that they once caught a ride with Tinnie Girl.

  12. Sounds wonderful. I have "retreat" written on my "to do" list for one day ... it is such a different experience to be in a place that gives you permission to leave all your baggage at the door and just "be crafty".

    Looking forward to seeing what you create!
