I stumbled across this wonderful site during the holidays and it's all I can think of! At 'Navel Jelly Studios' they have an artist's retreat called 'Art in the Rough', it's only a few days long (certainly doable for my first retreat) and it takes place in the beautiful state of Maine (within driving distance)! I know many will think I'm crazy for wanting to camp instead of doing the whole hotel thing but it just sounds so charming I can't resist. Luxury camping in the beauty of nature, several workshops offered and meeting new people, PRICELESS! ...so where did I put that credit card???

Wishcasting Wednesday 2010
http://jamieridlerstudios.ca/ has the most intriguing prompt for this 'Wishcasting Wednesday', 'What dreams to do you wish to explore?' I have one recurring dream that I have always wanted to bring to life and that is to travel to an 'art retreat' where the sole purpose of the trip is to spend time with like minded people, creating, learning new techniques, experimenting with new mediums and just enjoying the creative process. I have always pushed that dream on the back burner because of family obligations, work etc. Well this year I am going to plan that trip!!!
