reflections on Squam, June 2014 edition

oh Squam. you never fail to intoxicate, rejuvenate and educate me. this was my 9th (!) time at this creative gathering on a loon-filled lake in the woods of New Hampshire. i just read my account of my very first Squam experience and it all holds true to this day. it never gets old.

postcard from Squam

i’m back from Squam, and it was as glorious as ever. i’m exhausted, energized, inspired, fulfilled and oh so honored and grateful to have been part of it. and this weekend i’m off to Shakerag! look out for a Squam recap post later this week.

oh, and the winner of the Dropcloth samplers giveaway was Kay, [...]

the Makerie (part 2.1): workshops/teachers THIS year!

so, who’s teaching at this year’s Makerie? as usual it’s a lineup of talented makers that i’m beyond proud to be part of: helen dardik, rachel faucett, kristen fitzgerrell, jennifer mercede, mia semingson, and my pal rebecca ringquist! i can’t wait to meet these creative ladies and hopefully take one of their classes too. the [...]

the Makerie (part 2): workshops/teachers (last year)

arguably the most important draw for any art retreat is the roster of teachers and workshops, which change from year to year. surely you have artists, designers or bloggers that you follow and admire, and if you learn that they are teaching at one of these creative getaways, i’m willing to bet you won’t regret [...]

the Makerie (part 1): the setting

i’m getting so excited to return to the Makerie in April! i had such an amazing time last year, but — as with many events where i have a super awesome time and take a zillion pics — i never managed to get a blog post up, because i wanted to really do it justice. [...]
