The countdown is on for Colorfinder 1.0. MoJoy 2013!!

 My good buddy, Suzy, came to town this past weekend for us to do a little prepatory shopping for the upcoming retreat!  And Hobby Lobby was our primary target!
 Have you ever heard of someone spending 4 hours in one craft store?!  Well... you have now!

My art retreat theme is colorfinder.  In this class, we will be equating our "strengths" to our "colors".
 We'll be learning about the meaning of colors and how to invite more of  .... maybe joy, maybe power, maybe peace, maybe optimism,... whatever the participant decides, into their lives.  And we'll use various colors to attract such qualities to our lives, through stones in our jewelry and paint colors on our canvases, and tapes and tags added to our art journals.
 Suzy will be helping me with the class.  She and I picked out all kinds of cute fabrics to make a canvas banner on the last day with each participant's dream for the future.
 Makes me want to recover something stat!
 I don't think I got this one.  But I SURE did want it!
 There is all kind of color talk coming up!  I have learned quite a bit about colors doing the prep work for this retreat.
 And I have even determined the 11 colors that MoJoy will be operating around. Yes... 11!!
 Suzy helped me find all the cute little details that would make the whole shindig special.
 Spraypaint was on sale, so I got a bunch of this.  DUDE.... I love spray paint!!  So many opportunities!
 I bought this little beauty.  It reminded me of my big deer in my art room.
 ANd this reminded me of my cottage.  Hey retreaters, you are in for a treat!!  I even decorated the cottage this time!!  Been wanting to do that for years!!  And well, 2013, it became a reality!
 ANd then we ate at Cotton.  Ohhh myyyy!!!
 That is the best food I have had in a WHILE!!!
 The retreat group will be going out to dinner one night.  Maybe this will be our destination?!  hmmm.... we'll just have to see.  One thing is for sure....I am excited about the group that is coming.   It is a bunch of FUN ladies!!
First one coming in tomorrow night!!  Whoop whoop!

Bonalyn, we're using colors to find our " personal strengths" and then infusing all of our projects with that color/strength/quality that we most want to attract to our lives. I'm all about the power of attraction right now too!!
