Back from the Creative Souls Retreat which was held in Melbourne last week
Where I had the pleasure of teaching this wonderful group of ladies.
Bevlea Ross (The organiser) and Lucy were also in the class but ran off to attend administrative tasks when this photo was taken.
I had a great time catching up with my friends Ro Bruhn and Susan Lenart Kasmer.
Ro Bruhn is a special friend and it was so nice spending my first day with her and popping my head into her class just to say hi.
Susan is a riot, full of life and great energy and it was wonderful to catch up once again but particularly doing it on Aussie soil.
After a long day of teaching, we three, Susan, Laurie Mika and I decided to all look our best for this photo!!!
Jen was there.
All of us who were teaching and selling their wares and even doing classes themselves were run off our feet.
It was hard to spend alot of quality time to relax and just catch up, something I would have liked to have done but it is really quite impossible when everyone is so busy.
I did get to spend a day learning about Susan's Ice Resin. It was amazing to see all the wonderful creations that her class had done in the 2 days prior.
Jan Harris was there and her classes looked wonderful.
Laurie Mika swept her students off their feet with the art they made.
And Miss ATC extraordinaire, Kelsey was there teaching and doing classes too.
It was a wonderful environment in the Dandenongs of Melbourne.
Svetlana was in my class and was a pleasure to hang about with.
And then there was Russel the wombat who greeted me every day on my bed.
Thanks to Bevlea Ross, Lucy and Eva for putting on such a wonderful retreat, it is very comforting to know that a retreat of such high standards can be found here in Australia. Congrats to you all for your hard work, it really paid off.
