2013 ~ A brand new year, welcome to Gentle Threads ... here I will share my heart thoughts, creative adventures, my hopes, dreams and poetry with you. I believe all life experiences are woven together in a beautiful and gentle way. I am so glad you have come to join me here in this sacred space of mine!
A gentle heart is tied with an easy thread ~ George Herbert
and getting our hands dirty!
I have learned so many wonderful techniques
through e courses, retreats, books and magazines.
It was hard for me to realize that I was
now the teacher sharing what I have learned.
There were art supplies everywhere,
more than anyone could use in just one day,
there was relaxing music playing,
fellowship, conversation and giggling!
We created painted papers,
journals, collages, bookmarks,
little notecards and
extras to take home and create
something unique of our own.
Each workshop was filled
with learning, experimenting,
a sharing of ideas and techniques.
Each class was two and half hours long,
there was plenty of time to relax
and enjoy the process
of learning something new!
We even enjoyed a nice lunch time
A story read out loud
before beginning our next workshop
The Art of Wabi Sabi Watercolor ...
a Japanese view or process
of accepting what is
letting go of imperfection
It was the perfect workshop and ending to our day!
Learning to let go of expectations
Enjoying the process
Relaxing and Receiving
what was meant for each of us
I even shared a little of my own poetry!
(For Poetry always finds it way into my life)
for just one magical day.
A day full of love and laughter,
fellowship, letting go and creating.
I am so very proud to have been
a part of this amazing experience.
YES to envisioning what you want to happen!
YES to making your dreams come true!
YES to stepping out and leading others!
YES to sharing your dream with others!
YES to happy successes!
YES to saying we did it well!
We are already thinking about
our next adventure!
This time perhaps we will make it a weekend gathering.
