retreat ready!

IMG_0115 copy
It is official! My new studio has been transformed into a classroom and on Friday I will welcome 20 wonderful women into my space to create for three days. I am exhausted from all the preparation but so excited for this new chapter. I have been planning and dreaming about this for years and seeing it all come to life has been so exciting. This process has been a labor of love and I couldn't have done it without help from my amazing family- we have all been working around the clock to get things retreat ready! I will be signing off until Monday but here is a little peek inside my studio/classroom.

I especially like the driftwood in the vase. I was looking for something similar but would have never dared to add color like this. Bold and great!
