At this weekends "Artist Journey/Artists Journal" the weather outside was chilly, but the energy inside kept us warm. Taking a page from the January calendar, we worked our way around altered books, journal quilts and a several approaches to writing and sketching our way through the new year. I learned as much as I taught (thanks, Sue for the runthrough on how to make a hidden pocket in an altered book, and Kay for bringing The Secret), we ate well, slept well and talked about everything under the winter sun.

I plan to post pictures of the projects begun during the retreat, as they are documented and sent back to me -- but here are a few of the people pics. What can I say: I am living my dream and it's just getting bigger.
