2008 Diva Retreat Recap

Since our first Diva retreat in 2006, all of us have known somehow,that our paths would cross again... and again and again. Last weekend was our 2 year reunion and 11 of us shared our thoughts, ideas, techniques, queries,inspiration and friendship. With ice and snow predicted for last weekend you can well imagine how most of us reacted to the "farfetched" idea that our creative weekend "might be cancelled". As it turned out the ice melted and sun came out to reveal the deep blue mountain skies of North Carolina. What a relief and what an amazing beginning to this deep meaningful retreat.
From "show and tell" on Friday night from most of us, our inspiration
was flowing and we were all eager to get our fingers into the paint
and begin the process.Top to bottom is a collection of some of the creative journeys that
we have been on recently.
#1 Donna Williamson collages family photos with fabric
#2 Donna also shows a "color" motivated project done
with a group that she belows to in Charlotte. Her color" John Deere Green" ...
#3. Kristi giggles over her latest Fabric Booklace. Look for her to teach
that here in June. (Yes, you can finish it one class!)
#4. Suzi Hunt's newest fabric dolls took us all by storm. Generously
she has given us all a pattern to create our own.

This was only the beginning of the weekend. After that we shared
"goodie bags" filled with hundreds of unique found objects,
papers, vintage items, fabrics and much much more.

To be continued....
