Well last week I said I was going to finally share some of the beautiful pictures Cathy Walters took for me during my first Art & Faith Creative Retreat last July in Bellagio, Italy. I'm so excited to share these photos because she did such a GREAT job of capturing the weeklong event in such a personal way!

I've been keeping these photos pretty much hidden (except for a few collages I made) because there was a magazine interested in doing an article about my retreats.  And I am SO excited to say that it is finally happening!!  (It's been a little secret I've been keeping for a while :)

Yes, my Art & Faith Creative Retreat will be featured in the magazine Mingle by Stampington & Company and will be out on newsstands July 1st!  I can't WAIT!!

So I've sent off all the photos they want to put in the article and now I can share all the other ones!  But be sure to grab your copy of Mingle to see all the gorgeous photos in the magazine and the article I wrote talking about my heart behind these Creative Retreats that I started back in 2012.

I thought the best way to show you these photos is to walk you through the week so you could have a real feel for what we do and maybe get to experience it in some little way...

I have to tell you first that this "dream job" has become something so much more than that.  I truly feel it is something the Lord has called me to do and it's such a huge blessing in my life to share this place I love with so many people! Along with sharing in our love of art and faith, I get to bring people together in such a beautiful location!  

So here's a little peak into our week together last July...

I hope you enjoyed this photo tour of my Creative Retreats in Bellagio, Italy!  This is just a small sampling of what the week looks like.  I would really encourage you to consider joining me on one of my future retreats in Italy.  I promise you it will be a week you will never forget and you will gain lifelong friends to share those memories with for the rest of your life! 

Have a great day everyone!

Hugs,

Laura
