This is my new journal for Squam. It contains my own little personal pep talk:


My gear is all packed for Squam Art Workshops! I had to get some new canvases—mine were all too small. (I like that they’re going to make me think bigger.) Right now the canvases are all sitting in a happy pile in my car waiting to ride up to the Lake.

I’m so excited to meet all these women who I admire and who I’ve been gathering inspiration from online. Now I can do glean inspiration and techniques and ideas in person. Plus I have my own little room and I get to walk wooded paths along a lakeside for several days. I’ll let you know what I unfold about my own personal journey. I wonder if they have any artist advice for young (I guess that’s debatable considering they consider me “advanced maternal aged”) mothers who are about to have five children. I may have to figure that one out on my own…

Create, CREATE you beautiful thing you. I just couldn't be happier that you are doing this for yourself- WAY TO GO!!!!! And if I'm lucky maybe I can snag up something wonderful that you are sure to return home with.

Brittany, have a wonderful time. It sounds really cool - I just went to the link.

For some reason I had a memory of us at Ricks in our sculpture class. Before Christmas vacation they warned us over and over to get all our art stuff cause they would throw it all away during the break if we didn't. What do we do?? We don't get our stuff and we come back and ALL our work was gone. I'm still sad that I don't have that one mask we made as a keepsake. Random memory.

What a creative notebook! I have a friend - Vanessa who lives in Utah who introduced me to your blog today. I have family who lives in S. Hampton NH and she mentioned that I needed to check out your site. I'm so impressed!!
