Happy Friday everyone!

I've been working all week on this summers retreats and wanted to update everyone on some of the GREAT things we have planned!

In June I have the super popular Cori Spieker (a.k.a. The Reset Girl) teaching her amazing skills at using her PLANNER to change her life!  She has such an inspiring story and we will be exploring all that she has to teach us.  She will be teaching her "Crafy Planner Girl Workshop" as well as "Planning with a Purpose" and "The Faithful Planner Girl Workshop" so come on out and join the fun we will have with her!

Cori will be doing a special Saturday class specifically for local ladies who are in Italy (or not so local maybe??) and want to come out and meet her and take the "Crafty Planner Girl Workshop" on June 25th.   I will have more details on that soon and you will be able to sign up for that class right HERE on the website under the SIGN UP Page at the top!  This will be in Euro's since it is a class in Italy and I can only take 40 sign ups, so I will let you know when that becomes available.  If you are interested in this one day class you can also send me an email via the CONTACT page at the top of this website.  I am going to try and have one more local lady teach a class on that day so it will be an all day event for those interested in joining us in beautiful Bellagio for the day!  I will be posting photos of her classes (and mine) real soon, so be on the lookout for those...

These are just a few photos I found on her FB page to get you drooling for all her fun stuff:

And look who I see her with in THIS photo!!??  Shanna Noel, the girl who started the Journaling Bible Community on FB... AND one of the teachers with me in September in Italy!  Yes, they are friends and co-conspirators in this CREATIVE world we live in!  Love these two ladies and can't WAIT to have them join me in Italy this year!

Speaking of Shanna Noel... I am very excited to have her and Junelle Jacobsen teaching with me at the September Art & Faith Creative Retreat!  We are looking forward to this week as well and I know you will LOVE this opportunity to get to learn from both of these talented ladies!

Since September is still a ways away, I will be posting more details on their classes as we get closer to the dates.  But you can count of learning some wonderful Bible Journaling and Watercoloring techniques during this week for sure!  I will also try to set up a Saturday class for the local ladies during this week and will update the blog as soon as I have details about that as well.

For BOTH weeks in Italy though, you are more than welcome to join us!  If you want to come JUST for the classes OR for the whole week!  You can find all the details about the weeklong event under the SIGN UP page.  Just scroll down to each section and you will get your FILL of details.  I always encourage everyone to prayerfully consider joining this weeklong event because I truly believe it is a life changer! (just ask the women who have come in the past)  When do you get such a unique way to be inspired by the mountains, lakes and gorgeous architecture of Italy at the same time as fellowshipping with other believers and getting a chance to listen and learn from some AMAZINGLY "God Gifted" women!  

I am still in AWE of how the Lord has blessed ME with this opportunity to bless YOU when you come on this adventure with me! (and my daughters and I LOVE spoiling you ladies... ) It is such a GIFT and my prayer would be that each one of you could come along with me!  That is why I never say my retreats are "sold out" even if they technically are.  :)

I always pray that the Lord will direct the people who He wants to be there, to come.  If that means more ladies than I have space, then I know He will make room for them!  So if you are still thinking/praying about one of these retreats just send me a quick email through the contact page so I can look into reserving more rooms if needed...

Hope you have a BLESSED weekend and maybe some day I will get to meet you in Italy!
