CREATE Mixed Media Retreat 2013

My Display at The Artists' Faire at CREATE Mixed Media Retreat in New Jersey
Could it be that a month has passed since my last post?!?!  Both at home and away, July was filled with artistic adventure for me.  One of the highlights of the month was a trip to CREATE Mixed Media Retreat in Somerset, New Jersey. 

A sample created using dies and
texture plates by "Spellbinders". 
I'm looking forward to sharing
all that I've been creating
using these same tools.

This was my second year in attendance at The Retreat.  Last year I tagged along with my pal, and amazing mixed media artist, Jodi Ohl. She was teaching a variety of classes, and I appointed myself as her personal assistant for the week.  [Nice work if you can get it!  ;-) ]  This year I also decided to share my overabundant collection of supplies and my work as a vendor at The Artists' Faire there.

What a wonderful experience!  I'm still floating on the memories.  The creative community is filled-to-overflowing with kind, talented, generous, and funny women and men.  I'm grateful to count them among my friends, and I treasure every moment that we share.


  1. Stunning display! So glad your inaugural outing as a Vendor was a great experience. *I am hoping for the same in Chicago!*

  2. You're going to rock Chicago, Penny! Here's hoping that you, Jodi, and I will be able to attend together in 2014. :-)

    1. YES! Triple the pleasure, triple the FUN!
