Thing 1: I'm attending a Women's Art Retreat:
Join us Saturday, March 9 at Washburn Elementary for a day of creativity and relaxation! The day will begin with artist, author, and art therapist Ellie Jalbert speaking to the group about the benefits of art as a therapeutic outlet. Attendees will then break out into art sessions; they will attend three sessions during the day. A healthy lunch of soup, salad and baguette will be served. During the lunch hour we’ll have demonstrations of different art techniques for attendees to watch and hopefully take inspiration from. Enjoy a sweet treat and prize drawings. The event will wind down with a group yoga session guided by Kate Hanes.

Art projects included will be:
Alcohol Ink Tiles with Denise Violette and Beth Ann Cummings.
Create one of a kind design on ceramic tiles with alcohol inks. There is no ‘wrong way’ with this medium, it is relaxing and fun to see where the ink might lead you. You’ll then mount dried tiles on canvas for a ready-to-display art piece.

Altered Journals with Pam Crawford and Lois Brewer
Remember those black & White school notebooks? Get ready to think of them in a whole new light! Take your time and create a journal for whatever you feel. Recording your thoughts, inspirational sayings, bird sightings? If you can dream it, you can decorate it.

Watercolor Painting with Filomena Irving.
Join us for a guided hour of painting with watercolor. Have fun with color and lines! Sign your name and display with pride.

Thing 2: I need to pick up some batteries to replace my smoke detector on Sunday. Spring forward always means fresh batteries!

Thing 3: The icicles hanging from the front of my apartment building are taller than 6 feet! When they fall they always make the loudest crash!


  1. Your weekend sounds amazing! Have so much fun!!

  2. I ordered a new smoke detector ... and left it at the office. Bad Gal!

    Enjoy the retreat! I hope it helps your pesky health woes. Report back to us about the healing powers of art.
