I’m home again after an amazing adventure in beauty, creativity and friendship: The Squam Art Workshops in NH. It’s going to take me some time to process the experience, and I will be sharing it with you in the posts to come.

It started with kindred spirits. My roommate Marisa of Creative Thursday, and I couldn’t have been better matched. I mean, just look at our feet. We stayed in the cabin aptly named Nirvana. Lemme tell ya, it was the place to be.

Throughout the week we were treated to the fantastic music and sparkling personality of Jonatha Brooke.

There were delicious meals (no grocery shopping, cooking or dishes to do!) served with great company.

There was sewing and creativity flowing with the lake forever by our side. This shot is from one of my workshops. I placed all of the sewing machines right up next to the windows for optimum vista intake. πŸ™‚ I was continually astounded by this gathering of creative souls and their no-fear attitudes toward creating. They came from all over the US, plus Canada and the UK!

Each day was filled with fresh air, sunshine and natural beauty. Every evening my cabin-mates and I gathered around for the most wonderful chats late into the night/early mornings. I’ll share more soon about the talented artists I had the honor of spending time with. Lakeside in Nirvana. It doesn’t get any better.
