What!! Even Paradise Has Problems????

Oh Yeah even Paradise isn't perfect. Well at least not my Paradise. Not that I would want it to be perfect. That could prove to be very boring after awhile!!! I mean half of the fun in life is figuring out how to make something from nothing,or how to make something work, or how to get something done, or...well you get the idea.
One of the lovely things is my Paradise is soooooooo far away from the rat race of "civilization"!!! but it's just that plus which creates a bit of a negative.

Our kindred sister Cindy of Sweet Bead Studio and her planning partner Jeanette have put together a most awesome, incredible,not to be missed art retreat!!!! Yea!!!

Art Bliss 2010 be there or be sadly left out!! sigh...catch...sigh
Just think Deryn from Something Sublime will be there with workshops on the magical techniques that sets her jewelry worlds apart from anyone else. SO will Kerry Bogert from Kab's Creative Concepts who's lampwork beads always make you smile and bring to mind a few of your favorite things!! There's Melissa Manley metal worker extraordinar!! Lesley Venable will be there to hold your hand and lead you through the ever intimidating (well at least for me!!) world of vintage ephamera!! 

You can't tell me that this isn't going to be 2 days of sheer and complete BLISS!!!!! But alas the Washington DC, Virgina part of the Northlands is just a might ways away from this little sad girl artist! :( So I think the only answer would be for those of you that live a tad closer then mi need to be heading over to register for this stupendous retreat!!! I've even made it ever so easy for you. All you have to do is put your cursor on the button (just up there) or the one in my right column, or on Cindy's name. They will all take you right to Cindy's blog for all the details and how to register!!!

What you're still here??? Well I think I shall go feel a bit sorry for myself (until LW reminds me of all that is perfect in paradise)! Until next time have an audacious day and make a bit of art no matter where in the world you are   p;)

PS. Sometimes blogger can irk me somethin fierce @#$&*%** no matter what I try tonight I can't get the picture to link to Cindy's blog. The closes is that stupid little url stuck of to the side. Jeeezzzz has anyone told blogger lately that life doesn't need to be this complicated??

Pattie, wouldn't it be lovely if we could go to ALL of the wonderful retreats on offer?
We would never have to be at home!

I so know what you mean - but at least you can live in paradise. I don't even have that consolation.
Pattie, I am so thrilled to read that your jewelry is in big demand! Congratulations, Hermanita!! I do hope my contribution to your creativity reaches you soon...

Great post for sweet Cindy! I couldn't get the cute button link to work either, with the pic of the little boy. So I used a different one. At least its posted. Yes, we need to spread the word and get those closer signed up!

Now, about that multi tasking...what could I hook up to my sewing machine so I can get more done? Love it! Wish it could be a device to make more jewelry. Ha ha.

Thanks for coming by Pattie, glad you like the little boxes. Yes, I think you're right, Chester would be glad I'm able to do some creating.

Big hug to you little sister.
