She loves to Paint !!

So I have returned from the awesomely amazing artnest !!! WOW words can not even begin to start to tell all the gratitude , amazing feelings that I hold in my heart from this wonderful event- I met the most AMAZING she's ever !!! My heart was filled with joy and laughter making new friends ......
I was reminded to dream big .....

I was given wings to take flight ..... to believe ...... and laugh and laugh
In Kelly Rae's class we painted and collaged , while most people painted Girls I went with painting houses .... someone asked me what inspires me to paint houses .... I am a cancer by birth and a homebody ... I love being at home with my hubby and kids and this is where my inspiration comes from I think ....
the world you live in heart of mine , deep in love , cheerful and happy !
I made that painting in Mati's class - and this in Miss Jane Wynn's class - she is every bit as wonderful in person , funky and fun !!

so as you can tell artnest was soo inspirational .... unfortunately i didn't have my camera with me but one of my roomies miss artsymama, Kari, did !! and she took some wonderful pics as well as many more wonderful shes - go here and here and here to read more about the event !

thanks as always for stopping in !!!!
xoxo,
beth

Looks like you had a lot of fun.
I am hoping to take your March 21 class in Mesa, as I live in Queen Creek as well (for the 6 months of winter)and then we head back to BC Canada in mid April.

Beth,
I was so lucky to be able to sit by you and watch you do your magic. Plus I got to take a piece of your magic home. I love my house from you. I appreciate all the help you gave me and I am so excited to go to Artunraveled to see you again.
Love, Courtney

Well it sounds like you had a BLAST! Isn't that great to get away & be around other the "get you"? And by the way, your new hair cut is sazzy & cute as can be. When you cut your hair it makes you feel light doesn't it. It just swings & makes you feel good. I'll go check the other sites for photos. Thanks for stopping by to visit on Wednesday. Always feel honored to have such a famous guest.

It does look like there were some fantastic fun to be had :). I especially love the necklace you made. The pendant is so beautiful. I am mesmerized by the crystals and lace, with paper. And is that a touch of solder I detect on the edge? Be still my heart!! Did you make the frame yourself in the workshop?
