Misty Mawn at Art and Soul Retreat Virginia 2010

OK, I threw caution, or I should say money I don't have, to the wind and signed up for Misty Mawn's Saturday and Sunday Workshop at Art and Soul Retreat. The class is called Self Contained. My plan is this: drive down Friday, workshop Saturday and Sunday, Saturday is vendor night where I will spend more money I don't have, and drive home Monday morning. I am going to wait until I have 30000 American Express points to book my room. That way of the 3 nights I spend at the Embassy, one will be free. That hotel sure does suck up the bonus points!! Anyhoo, everything I buy until then goes on American Express!!! I only have 24000 points right now, so I will probably wait until Jan or Feb to book my room or sooner if I hit the magic number. Hope they will still have some rooms left. Now is anyone else going??? I would love a roommate to share the hotel cost. I purchased one of Misty's paintings several years ago at A and S and have been a long time admirer of her work. There were many other classes I would have loved to take, but alas, no money, no money, no money. There are only 4 spots left in Misty's class, so get on the stick, girls if you want to attend. Join me, we'll have a blast, but if I'm driving, I get to control the radio!!! xoSusan


  1. I just came back from 4 days at the Squam Art Workshops were I was lucky enough to play the days away with Judy Wise and Sarah Ahearn. Such a treat for the art journal freak in me ! But the $$ was a big thing for me when i was first considering going. But I made the intention - I need to go and do this for me- and then the $$ appeared somehow - a few hundred raised from selling my art stuff, a few hundred from a bonus my hubby got unexpectedly at work. And now I am on the other side with a ton of inspiration, life-changing experiences that I am still settling into and some great new friends close to me that I really, really needed.
    Go for it. Build it and the $$ will come !
