Yes, that's right, an entire weekend getaway filled with exciting creative workshops, delicious meals, a goodie bag, the beautiful Pacific Ocean, and more relaxation than you'd think possible. Come join the fun - it's a weekend all about YOU!
Classes, Classes & More Classes
Yay!  Heidi Borchers is debuting her Starbucks Mixed Media Masterpiece!  She's been asked for years to share her technique and we're lucky enough to be in the first class!  You'll be amazed at the art you create using Starbucks paper goods under the guidance of Heidi, who's been an artist all her life. You can leave your piece natural or paint to fit your decor. This is going to be a smashing good time!

Lana and Sloane Simmons from EZScreenPrint, will show how really easy screen printing is - it only takes 60 seconds exposure to the sun to make the screen!  You'll screen print three projects including the Amazingly Fast & Easy Screen Print Wall Art, a tote bag, a tile coaster and take home the supplies to create even more!

Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate!  The For the Love of Chocolate class features yummy gourmet chocolate tasting from The Joycup Co. and we'll carry on our theme by decorating a colorful container for your own chocolate stash.  Joan'sgathering trinkets, baubles and doodads from her travels and bringing tons of items from her studio for you to personalize your container.

Succulents are so popular and shoes, well, we all LOVE shoes.  Joan Martin Feecombined the two and came up with an adorable Shoe Succulent Garden using a super easy decoupage process. While the glue is drying,  we'll make lovely Herbal Hand Scrubs, all perfect gifts for the holidays.

There's one more class, but it's a TOP SECRET SURPRISE!  You'll have to wait until Sunday morning of the retreat to find out!

Mosaic Shoe Class

The inspiration for my mosaic shoe was my grandparent's broken China.  It was broken when it fell off a shelf in my parents garage and my dad drove over it many, many years ago.  I ran across it last week and was excited to finally have a vision for the mosaic shoe class I was taking from Heidi Borchers. I ran out of time and can't wait to finish the inside and be able to grout next week.

Mosaic Shoe

 I'm very excited about the Mosaic Shoe workshop tomorrow taught by Heidi Borchers!  We were talking earlier this week and she said something about using plates on the shoe - it hit me!  I recently ran across the broken China that belonged to my
grandparents.  I've had it for years waiting for the right project.  Pictures of the finished shoe late tomorrow.

Sea Glass Jewelry

I love walking on the beach taking in all of the amazing sights, sounds and smells.  I especially love it when I find beautiful worn sea glass nestled in the sand.  I have quite a collection so now I'm transforming them into jewelry and I'd like to share my techniques with you.  Come soak up some sun on the beautiful Central Coast of California and learn how to make your own sea glass jewelry - I'll even share some of my sea glass with you.  Check out the details at http://www.creativemetime.com/make-sea-glass-jewelry.html
